I remember one in particular speaker (the only one I really heard) saying that abortion degrades motherhood. And that in our society motherhood isn't valued as much as it should be. I very much agree with that. Sometimes I feel that people see me as just a stay at home mom when really being able to stay at home and take care of my children is such a blessing. It is so important and I feel so blessed, sometimes people don't see that.
I really could go on and on about how I feel about abortion. When I was a baby my mother gave me up for adoption because she was a teenager and couldn't care for me the way she knew someone else could. What a selfless act. I'm so grateful to her. I know that a lot of people argue that some people couldn't take care of children, but I feel there is a great need to help these mothers who are lost and feel there is nothing else. I would much rather have my tax dollars going to women's shelters than to planned parenthood (which thankfully isn't anymore). And women who have gone through this need help and healing, and we need to help them too.
And I know people say that it should be the mother's choice, but what about the baby? A poor small baby with no choice, left up to her mother to give life and to care. It makes me so sad.
