The leftist hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me. But their cold, callous nature can still send shivers down my spine.
Let’s face it. This country will probably face stark division regarding abortion for generations to come. There are just some things we can’t seem to agree on.
When does a little growth of cells become a baby? At fertilization? At the first heart-beat? When little fingers and toes are visible on an ultrasound? Or, is it the moment they are born?
Most mothers can tell you, it isn’t the moment a baby is born. Personally, I have seven children. But I’ve only given birth twice. And here’s what I can tell you for absolute certainty. My boys had personalities long before they left the womb.
My first son, Dylan, was calm and patient. He didn’t move a whole lot. He nestled into his favorite spot and snuggled there, even if that meant his foot was jabbing me in the ribs. That was his stubborn streak. He arrived pretty early, and true to the nature I knew him to have. He never cried much, slept through the night at 6 weeks old, grew up to be an easy-going guy.
The second one, Tucker, was restless and busy. He was flipping and flopping from the start. This kid didn’t jab my ribs, he kicked him with all his might. He was born just as early as his brother was. But instead of 12 hours in labor, this little guy managed to push his way out in five minutes flat. And, my friends laughed that he didn’t sleep through the night until 3rd grade. Apparently it was payback for bragging about my little snuggly-sleeper. Tucker grew up to be intense and driven. All this is just to say that I knew them before they got here. They prepared me for who they were going to be.
Ask any real mother, and they have similar tales to tell.
Even cravings that later show up as your child’s favorite foods are signs that this baby was a real person before their grand entrance into the family. Whenever I hear the abortion debates, my mind goes straight to those tiny little baby boys who now tower over me while I still marvel, knowing I made them.
Here’s the only other thing I can say for a fact. Every woman who faces that choice will also someday face our creator. So no matter how the debate goes down on earth, the real judgment carries a far bigger weight, the eternal weight. That’s why it’s so distressing to see leftists act like the very lives of these babies are insignificant. These are people, who were meant to be someone. But that is leftist hypocrisy at it’s core.
Set Them Free
I was talking to my mother the other night, and she made a point that just made my blood boil. I’m sure other people have already said this, but it was the first time I ever really heard it, and listened to it.
“The same people who say abortion is ok fight against the death penalty all the time.”
Wait a minute. Let that really sink in.
These are among the most disturbing entries.
“Known as the “Bedroom Basher” for a string of brutal sex murders in Orange County in the 1970s, Gerald Parker, 66, raped and murdered five women and killed the unborn baby of a sixth woman.
Parker was sentenced to death by lethal injection in 1999 and 64 years in prison without possibility of parole and remains on death row.
He was also slapped with a six-year prison term for the rape of a 14-year-old girl in 1980.
John Hummel, 44, was sentenced to death in 2011 for the 2009 murders of his pregnant wife, his daughter, 5, and his father-in-law. Cops found their beaten and burned bodies after responding to a fire at their home, according to court records cited by the Texas Tribune.
Authorities found they died from blunt-force injuries in or near their beds before the house was set on fire. Hummel later confessed to stabbing and beating his wife before beating his daughter and father-in-law to death.
Stephen Dale Barbee
Stephen Dale Barbee has been on death row for more than 15 years after he was convicted of murdering his pregnant ex-girlfriend and her 7-year-old son.
Lisa Underwood, 34, was killed alongside her son, Jayden, at their home in Fort Worth, Texas in 2005. Their bodies were found buried and severely beaten.
Barbee has been on death row since February 27, 2006.
Serial killer Paul Durousseau murdered seven young African-American women between 1997 and 2003 – including two who were pregnant. Durousseau – nicknamed the “Jacksonville Strangler” – was living in Florida with his wife and two daughters and worked several jobs, including as a school bus driver.
Guess what all these men have in common?
