As I was doing some reading on the web the other night I came across a quote, a devastating quote in my opinion.
"Life is a sexually transmitted disease."~ R. D. Laing
I googled Mr. Laing and it turns out he was a psychiatrist. I really just wanted to know who said such a thing. The more I thought about it the more I thought that this must be how some see "it". They must think of their pregnancy as a disease, or an infection, and an abortion as the treatment. Isn't that devastating?
It reminds me of the phrase "unwanted pregnancy". Maybe the person who's pregnant doesn't want to be pregnant or to have a baby, but there's someone out there that wants both more than words can say. There isn't anything as valuable or as important as a person's life yet some would rather throw it away than give it away. Isn't that devastating?
We live in a large city. Unfortunately home break ins and random acts of violence are not rare. I'm not a worrier by nature but I do have thoughts about what I'd do if something were to happen to us. I, like most mothers, would die for my children ~ literally. In the name of "women's rights" and "choice" it's the children (with no rights or choice) who die for their mothers. Isn't that devastating?
Planned Parenthood of Indiana is selling gift certificates for the holidays. According to an AP article "the Indiana branch is among a handful of its 99 affiliates that currently offer gift certificates or have done so in the past." Isn't that pathetic? Merry Christmas.
It's really too bad that Planned Parenthood doesn't like the word "life", because they could put the above quote to some devastating use.
