I have spoke out on this many times.
I have a sister, that was adopted as a baby from a woman who was having an affair with a married man...yet, gave her actions, which created life, the ability, from no fault of my sister, to have a life...become a wife...a mother...and one day, a grand mother.
I also have another sister, who had an abortion, from her actions of ignorance, of youthful indiscretions and fleshly natures...and after the fact, told us.
...I would have thought she would have looked at her own sister, an seen the connection...but all she saw is she wasn't ready, wasn't mature enough, wasn't thinking of the life her actions, created...and she has to deal with that.
The abortion led to medical problems, and her doctor telling her she could never have a child...which led to her even more irresponsible in her actions.
She is now a single mom...and it has left me with feelings of not even wanting to get to know my nephew. In fact it took me a long time to even want to be with him, in my believing he should have been given the same value my adopted sister was given a life, with a mom and dad, married and morally and Biblically guided in their lives.
I remember the first time I had to watch him, because his dad was in jail, his mom was working and 'grammy' couldn't do it on her own. I was recovering from surgery, and all I saw was a way my sister would use something/someone else to bail her actions out...and cost me in the long run. I didn't want to do it, but had no choice,
Over time, I became both rewarder and discipliner of his life...but it wasn't easy...and my sister did use him to continue her actions of "It's my life", while expecting the key to her action bailed out.
I would read to my nephew. It was the first inter-action we had. He would sit beside me. Then I would get on him, if he acted up. He would sit beside me as I fixed things around the house, he would be in awe as I would draw things for him and teach him little things my father taught me...and yes, shame, restitution and discipline are a part of that.
One day, as I was reading to him, he stood up, and whispered in my ear, so very softly, "I wish you were my daddy."
I felt my body begin to shake, from the inside out, from a value I didn't want to get into what my sister would use and abuse...as she always has...but it was too late. Regardless, he is my nephew, and I would die for him.
On one part, I feel resentment, from a sister that uses people...and on another, the love I feel for a nephew that deserves so much more than the hand he has been given...My heart is split, in anger...and love...and it is something I have not been able to figure out...yet.
The value of sex today, is like a 'handshake', and that ignorance is taught in our educational system and men and women saying they have the right to do what they want, with whoever they want, whenever they want, wherever they want...and send the bill to taxpayers and an agenda driven majority that murder their own babies...legally through those who never should have been judges, never allowed to be political leaders and false 'prophets', false 'preachers' and false 'teachers' that will one day, feel the wrath of God.
Protecting children, and making personal responsibility come back, will take shame, restitution, discipline and taking back this worlds values, to God's values...and one way is to make the definitions of 'Life' connecting legally by biological and legal ways, and Rand Paul is leading this charge.
It is called 'The Life of Conception Act'
Please watch the video and sign the petition to protect what conception is. Life and personal responsibility.
There is also a new movie coming out called '40', which talks about the values of Roe Vs. Wade (1973), and what it has done to divide this nation in morality, commonsense and God...and the younger generation is waking up to that immorality, ignorance and Satanic/secular movements...
