Birth or Not

Abortion has been a subject of debate for many years. Personally, I am 100% AGAINST abortion as I think that it is murder of a child. Many people argue that until a child is born, there is not life. I believe that from conception, there is life. Recently, I was made aware of a couple who are letting people vote on whether or not they should keep their child or have an abortion. I'm still not certain if this is legit or if it's just a desperate cry for attention. If it is legit, this is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard of. This couple has set up a website called Birth or Not and has a live poll which people can vote whether to keep or abort their child. They have named the child Wiggles and routinely post ultrasound pictures of the baby. They are currently 17 weeks pregnant. They are planning to keep the poll active until two days before the last day they are legally allowed to abort. They have devalued and made a mockery of this unborn child's life. It makes me very upset to see these two very selfish and unfit parents play around with life. My hope is that this child is born healthy and that he or she is given up for adoption to a loving family. There are so many people who are unable to have children and would welcome a child into their lives. I believe that every child is a blessing and a gift.

From personal experience, I understand the anxiety an unplanned pregnancy can bring. I was only 18 when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. I was young, naive, and scared. I wasn't sure right away if I was ready to become a parent but I knew that there was life inside of me and that was not for me to take away. I chose to raise my child and am so glad that I made that choice as he is a blessing.

If anyone is reading this and is pregnant and not ready to be a parent, there are options. Adoption is a wonderful opportunity to let your child live a happy and blessed life. Just because you are not ready to become a parent does not mean that your child is not ready to live. Do right by your children. There are adoption agencies all over the country and pro-life pregnancy centers that can help you through this process.

Please remember that children are a gift from God and although you may not have planned for them, they are a part of HIS plan.
