I read JJ's posting this evening on Unrepentant Old Hippie blog & clicked the link & came across Big Blue Wave's Blog. I'm only providing the link solely because some may not believe the quote on her posting I came across below.
I left a very angry comment to her posting, but since she uses the option to approve, oops! I mean censor her comments, more than likely it will never be posted, so I am posting my comment to my posting & unlike her, I would welcome comments. As a matter of fact, I dared her to comment on this posting.
Whoa! A certain quote troubled me greatly: I read it twice to make absolutely sure I didn't misunderstand you:
"The unborn child, of course, is a non-issue. His welfare is of no consequence. It can't be. It would get in the way of making people accountable for his existence and living up to their responsibilities."
I always knew the irony of Pro-lifers, that life seems to end at Birth; but that above quote goes too far. It seems you're saying that this child should be born into a terrible life knowing he or she is unwanted & suffering from neglect, resentment, physical & emotional abuse is better than the fetus never coming to be at all?? Oh, I so have alot of trouble with that one.
How can you say "The unborn child, of course, is a non-issue. His welfare is of no consequence...." ??
I'm all for adults taking responsability for their actions, but why put an innocent child through that kind of hell? This child didn't ask to be brought into the world; certainly not into a hellish environment. The child is not to blame for the sins of adults.
Are you saying that these unwanted, abused children are martyrs to your cause??
I work for a social service agency specializing in Child & Family Services: Believe me work where I work...hear the stories...all these children... to you: 'their welfare is a non-issue'?? Wonder if you would change your mind then??
That's right, Missy! Agencies & organizations like the one where I work pick up in caring for these children where you pro-lifers stop caring. These agencies & organizations way more caring than the likes of you & your ilk.
I know you probably won't publish this as you only publish comments from your cheer-leaders; that's ok: This will be posted to my blog for all to see how callous for human life you REALLY ARE!!! How do like that for irony?
Oh, & unlike you, I will allow your comments to be published to my blog; in fact, I dare you to...
Oh, & this wingnut is from Canada!! Are Canadians going to Hell in a Handbasket now??
