June 17, 2017. Missouri just passed a law allowing women to be fired from their jobs for using birth control.
First, they wanted to prevent abortions, now they want to cause unwanted pregnancies.
This puts women between a rock and a hard place and allows us no freedom to control our own lives.
Make up your mind, Missouri.
“In this life we can’t always do great things.
But we can do small things with great love”
Anti-Abortion is pro-life.
But Pro-Life is not so simple. Pro-Life is short for, “the promotion of life.” of which anti-abortion is only a small part.
Other parts of Pro-Life include:
- Care of the fetus before and after birth
- Maternal health care before and after birth
- Medical care for both mother and unborn child
- Medical care for both mother and child after birth
- A Home in a safe environment
- Family planning
There are many more issues to protect the child and ensure its life and well-being that will come up in this discussion.
Women who see themselves as being on one side or the other I call on you, beg of you to join forces for the health of every unborn and new infant and their mothers in our country. Together, I know we can do a hundred times more good for everyone involved than we can fighting each other.
If you have any thoughts about this I look forward to your comments.
Many of you know how frustrating it can be to want to prevent abortions and save the lives of unborn children when it seems your only recourse is to urge the passage of laws making them illegal or at least hard to come by.
I don’t know of any woman who thinks of an abortion as a good thing but rather as a sad answer to a sadder problem. Any unwanted baby is cause for tears.
Yet the frustration for people who want the freedom to plan their families, prevent unwanted pregnancies and even seek abortions is just as severe.
Women on both sides have resorted to carrying signs, marching in parades and shouting at each other with no satisfaction on either side.
Seems to me it would be useful to actually explore what Pro-Life is all about, what it means to each of us and what we can do together to reduce the number of abortions and promote the births of healthy wanted babies.
