I thought the point of this story was too good not to share. Saw it a few times on Facebook.
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!
"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!
**Not that many people read my blog, but for those who do, please understand that I am not a hater of those who have had an abortion. I happen to believe it is taking an innocent life and this story illustrates it well. I also believe the Church should step up and care for the children of those who don't want to continue a pregnancy. Maybe at some point in the future our family will have the blessing of being part of that. But, in the meantime, I don't think abortion is a viable solution. I would rather see people having restraint (not having sex if you aren't ready for a baby), using birth control, and seeing adoption as the truly loving option.
