And I wonder how many more.
Fifty five million reasons to stand against planned barrenhood.
At least fifty five million babies never had the opportunity to take a drink of milk… never had the opportunity to be cradled and rocked to sleep… never had the opportunity feel the sun on their face… never had the opportunity to smell a rose… never had the opportunity to blow bubbles, dandelions or birthday candles… never had the opportunity to open a present, open a door, open a book, open a window… never had the opportunity to breathe fresh air, to snuggle in a blanket, splash in a puddle, lick an ice cream cone, see a sunrise, hear a melody, or whisper I love you.
To be sure, these are not entries on a list of fifty five million reasons to stand against abortion and Planned Parenthood et al. The fifty five million reasons to stand against heinous atrocity of abortion and the horrifying practices of Planned Parenthood are these: Babies. Fifty five million babies.
It is gruesome and unconscionable that Planned Parenthood sells baby parts. It is sickening that women are being lied to and conditioned to believe the lie, conditioned to accept the lie that abortion is the only way to “solve” a seemingly terribly difficult circumstance. It is appalling that medical ethics of doing no harm or preserving life are being set aside. It is hideous and dreadful that babies bodies are being parted out as if they are nothing more than tissue — useful material for re$earch. It is horrifying that it’s only now being so widely discovered on a national basis. It is shocking that it’s so cavalierly discussed over a luncheon salad and a glass of wine. It’s egregious that it’s being defended.
But the heart of the matter is still the heart of the matter: babies hearts are being stopped… and their voices are not being heard. Babies… these are the fifty five million reasons to stand against abortion and against Planned Parenthood. Take a stand against planned barrenhood.
