Have you heard about the man charged with murder for tricking his girlfriend into taking the morning-after pill? No? Well then, read here:
Does anyone see the hypocrisy in a legal system that says if you want a baby, then to kill it is murder, but if you don't want it, then it's a legal procedure?
Am I the only one who recognizes the hypocrisy in that?
As someone who had an early ultrasound with my first pregnancy - at 7 weeks - and saw the heartbeat, and as someone who recently had a miscarriage, I cannot imagine my horror if I ever discovered that I had been tricked into aborting my child at 6 weeks along.
But at the same time, the fact that the system legally permit abortions of the same unborn children, the same heart-beating babies, because the mother doesn't want it... is disgusting and heart-wrenching.
I saw Jena's heart beating on the monitor at 7 weeks gestation. She was alive. A living human being with her own body, her own tiny heart beating on its own.
And yet in most states she could have been killed for another 5 weeks. In a few states, she could have been even older than that.
Disgusting. Selfish. Murder.
Wanted or unwanted, legal or illegal, killing is killing, murder is murder.
