Right to change my mind

As is the title of my blog, everything is my life is changing, including my views on some major issues. I feel that I have a right to change my mind, and I want to share that with you. I have always felt that abortion should be legal, and that a woman should have a right to a safe abortion. But I've changed my mind. It's wrong. It's murder. It's a human life that is precious and should be protected. By the mother. By the father. By our laws. It's such a complicated issue. I do think that if the mother's life is in danger, she should have the right to decide, and that doctors shouldn't be at risk for criminal punishment for saving a woman's life. And I do think people have a right to let go of stored embryos. So when does life begin? Conception? Pregnancy? Birth? These are the mysteries of life and cannot be answered by anyone on earth. But these questions have to be answered to make laws... There has to be a line drawn somewhere. In this country, abortions are legal, but killing a newborn child is a sinister crime. Killing a pregnant mother and her unborn child is considered double murder in some states. So how is abortion legal? I used to feel that abortion was inevitable and that young women should be protected against back-alley abortions. Now I feel that these women should be educated against abortion and helped with their pregnancy and birth of their child. Murder and rape and other crimes are going to happen, but that doesn't mean they should be legal. So I've officially changed my mind.

Little boy is going for his 4 month check-up today and shots... not looking forward to that.

  1. I agree with you.. abortion IS MURDER.. so says the Bible. It doesn't use words such as fetus.. it says BABY.. I believe the BABY is a BABY from the moment of conception...there are so many people who can't have and want babies so there is no reason to kill unwanted babies because there is always someone who wants them..Second Samuel 11:5. This verse, along with countless others, Says she was "with child" not with "appendage." The argument may be given that it is just a "saying" but where did the saying come from? And isn't the Bible accurate even in the smallest details? I believe that it is..
    sorry for the long comment.. but this is something I feel very strongly about..feel free to delete if you want to.. I won't get upset..lol
