Ok, so first of all this was posted by a dear friend of mine, who just so happens to be uber Christian. A few years back, she had a lot of problems getting pregnant and once she did, she miscarried. It was a very sad time for her and her family and I feel bad for any couple who has to go through this...but...after extensive medical treatments and what not, "god" blessed her with 2 beautiful twin girls. Now, this is just one thing I don't have the guts to call her out on...[mainly because she so darn nice]... She believes that Yahweh helped her have the 2 twins...I say, according to her belief, God gave her messed up ovaries and SCIENCE corrected the problem...mmm some intelligent design...
So, she posted something about abortion that really irked my nerves.
My friend: There are other options rather than aborting a baby you can give it up for adoption there are many women who can't get pregnant on their own and would love the opportunity to have a baby. I use to be one of those women who couldn't get pregnant until God blessed me with 2 beautiful little girls.
The foward she shared that read:
A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:
'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.
So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?'
She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'
The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.'
She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.
Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.
The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!
'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.'
The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.
He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb.
The crime is the same!
If you agree, please SHARE. Together we can help save precious lives!
"Love says I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person. Abortion says I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself..."
Jesus sacrificed Himself for the good of sinners! That's perfect love!
<I received this as an e-mail and post it on FB>
Ok, first of all, if my doctor said that to me, I would report him and promptly find a new doctor. The vindictive me would probably write a blog about it and make sure everyone in town knew just how insensitive this doctor is.
The point is, if a women comes into a doctor's office and asks for an abortion, if the doctor doesn't want to do it, he should refer her to someone that will. Belief systems should not factor into this situation.
