The gift of life
Thank you for sharing this powerful message. Margaret Sanger, ergo Planned Parenthood, is all about eugenics - whether skin color or abnormalities detected in-utero. As a mom to 5 adopted children, all society would have said "abort" each of them due to parents' circumstances, etc. I am so thankful their moms chose life. Each of these children, like by 6 biological children, were created by God in His image. He has a purpose for them. When we abort babies, we "play God" and don't respect, trust, or love Him for the plan He has for each human in His created world. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. They are blessed to have you and your mom. :)
I love being the reason someone else can be grateful. Absolutely lovely thought.
Joshua, thank you for your essay. It has inspired me to write a "Why I Am Thankful" letter to almost 1000 union members who elected me their president a year ago. I owe it to them, I think.
My father tried to abort me but I was 15 years old and he couldn't run fast enough. Interestingly, I have never heard an aborted fetus complain about the abortion.
I am thankful that my beautiful only son’s birth mother was unable to obtain an elective abortion in the Catholic country she lived in so she placed him for adoption. I unapologetically maintain that his life and the love and joy he brings to me, his father, and his five sisters (my bio daughters) is worth the thwarting of his birth mother’s preference.
