As a former nurse another lifetime ago, the hospital where I worked in the late 1970s was one of the first in Florida to perform terminated pregnancies legally - "TPs".
I was of the mindset abortion was better than bringing a life into the world that would be unloved or neglected. Until I witnessed two abortions - one only 14 weeks.
Not only did I do a 180 degree turn against abortion when that dead baby was put into a cold metal bowl and I was instructed to take it to a room where it would be discarded but I requested not to be assigned TP patients any longer.
I wasn't the only nurse to do so.
One baby came out breathing. The same professionals who had tried to kill it just moments before were panic-stricken trying to feed it to keep it alive.
That juxtiposition will forever be ingrained in my mind.
"Once came out breathing."

Yeah, right. LTAs weren't and aren't performed in the same manner or in the same venue, as early term abortions. They were and are a much moreover complicated procedure. You should have stopped writing before that sentence, lady. Lol

:)- as I read what you wrote, I could only agree with you.
I'm 6'2" tall 243lbs, with alot of muscle "no body builder type ",but big guy, with a tendency to be a azz, and a jerk, and very capable to hurt someone,but also have the ability to cry in my car, when I see a single mom trying to fill out an application at mcdonalds, while taking care of her two or three kids,or when I see a pic of a child fighting cancer.
You're exactly right, when in my flesh I only care about ME, but in my spirit I love you and all.
When I was saved, it was like recieving the greatest gift ever,and I want all others to have this gift, BUT I also realize I wanted nothing to do with any god gift for years, and I sometimes try to sell my God, like a used car salesman.
We may not ever agree on issues, but I do thank you for accepting anything from me, and I WILL try and listen more, while thinking more before I write back.
I think many programs drug related and others are good for anyone to go through, if they are an addict or not.
I fully understand what it is like to wake up everyday, and know if my day was going to be good or not based on how many pills I had. I do have a heart for all people, and will be able to show it, if I can get "me " to shut up long enough.
So, thanks!
Thank YOU.
Ps -I recommend the dove truffles, if you've never had them.:)
I got them for my wife. So I'll snitch a few when she opens them later. <<grin>>

<quoted text>But in DeGall's reply #283581 he says Jesus despises many people. Why didn't Jesus despise you?
That's a mystery. I was certainly one who should have been despised.

Guess it has to do with Jesus saying my sheep hear my voice.

Maybe some sheep just stray so far from the shepherd they can't hear him - or bleet so loud they drown him out.

It might have something to do with having no place else to look but up too. Or a combination of both.

Don't know for sure. I do know the scriptures say "Be still and know that I am God."

Maybe some of us just have to stop fidgeting or being easily distracted.

One thing's for certain. If you seek him, you will find him.

I was there. I wouldn't lie to you.

The entire floor was in chaos. The nurses and doctors in the room all had the exact same look - like deer caught in headlights.

The baby eventually died which was actually a blessing because it had been drowned in saline solution.

<quoted text>Nonsense. We are big fans of both birth control and adoption. Denying that just enhances your argument. That's dishonest. WWJD?
If all of you were such big fans of birth control and adoption, the number of abortions would be extremely rare.

This is not the case.

Okay. I believe you, since it was so long ago. Saline? Thank goodness, abortion technique is so much more advanced. Scheduled LTAs are only performed in four venues in the U.S, btw.

The number of abortions is down. Teen pregnancy is down. Abortion numbers are down. Adoption is a different and complex subject. For a nurse, you sure have a pie-in-the-sky vision of sex and pregnancy. Get real. Unwanted pregnancies and abortions have always been a reality. We will not be pushed back into the dark ages, thank you.

Yes I have. Life is truly short and full of sorrows.
I even remember hearing about the woman who killed her kids, to "Save their souls ",as she was taught all kids go to Heaven, if they haven't reached the age of acvountability, and was brainwashed into thinking very few will make the cut, and how much good works one must do, in orddr to make it. When the truth is, it isn't about our good /bad works, it is about His Good /Finished work at the cross, that if A Person puts their faith and trust in, that qualifies us to live forever with God.
I understand now how Jesus was always more upset with the religious crowd, instead of the everyday sinners.
I still don't believe casual sexual encounters are worth the risk, of any negative side effects.
What YOU believe is irrelevant to me and probably any other woman who doesn't want to get or stay pregnant. Not YOUR pregnancy? Not your decision. Deal with it.

I remember Doc saying that he was PC. It's was quite a while ago. He must have finally worked it out for himself, because he seemed like he was on the fence about abortion rights, back then.

Not a lie.

Botched abortions happen more often than you think.

Can we talk about this president on this forum? Because his "present" vote as a Senator in Illinois denying botched abortion babies medical attention is revealing as to his character.

A present vote means no in politics but used by those who don't take a stand for anything just in case they become the president.

Because it's all they have, Foo. They buy into the PLM's lies then sell out to them to make a buck. All the while insidiously working to remove women's civil rights. And pointing their crooked little fingers at those who speak the truth.

(check it out; remember ray ruddy, founder of lila rose? of maximus? i tried to have a discussion in another thread and that post got yanked, too)

Actually you can find it in Matthew 24:29. Word for word.
Oh right, I forgot the bible was written in English!!
And what about genesis??? "two great lights"???

In mathew It days the moon shall not give her light. There are other statements to that effect in the bible, but you'd probably not be open to any idea that doesn't fit into your point if view anyway.

It also says the stars will fall from the sky.

If a pie-in-the-sky vision of sex and pregnancy means believing you don't have sex unless you're on birth control or are prepared to face the consequences, then you have me pegged to a tee.

The number of abortions and teen pregnancies going down is encouraging. However, I'd have to do some research unless you can show me.

Ohhh, good catch, Foo! I didn't see that part! And she said later that the fetus drowned in the saline. Hmmm... really? Is that how it works? No. However, the woman sounds ancient. I'm opting to be gracious and letting her have her dream:-)
