Abortion and Notre Dame
Today, Obama said at commencement, "Let's reduce unintended pregnancy!"
NO! NO! NO!
The Blessed Virgin Mary's pregnancy was unintended.
Jesus was a COMPLETELY unintended pregnancy!
My brother was an "unintended" pregnancy...because Mom had been told she'd never have children. By that definition, in spite of the fact that my brother came before me, the doctor's diagnosis didn't change, and although we were wanted and desired, we were not "intended" for our parents did not know we were even possible. Then along came...ME! My imperfect self. Unintended by Obama's definition.
Never mind all those who have sexual relations without realizing the natural ends of those sexual relations. It amazes me that someone can look at such intimacy and be "surprised" at "unintended" results of an action that, as its natural end, is a child.
I might be a "willed" child, but very likely "unintended".
I thank God that Mom didn't "decide" to end her "unintended pregnancy".
Just because a pregnancy is "unintended" doesn't render the created life to be useless or without merit. If anything, ending the life of an unborn child has a greater chance of rendering the life of the mother and father (or whoever makes the "decision") without merit...not the child they slaughter in the womb.
What is abortion but an act of supreme judgment? Judge not lest you be judged...
Good luck if you think abortion is A-OK! Hope your own particular judgment goes better than that to which you just sentenced an innocent child!
PSST! If you still HAVE a conscience...there's ALWAYS time for Divine Mercy....please go there! No matter WHAT you've done or advocated...Jesus is waiting to forgive you.
He forgave me MY sins....He will forgive anyone...
