Abortion "rights" - and a look at life.
By Paul Hayden

There is no higher calling nor noble aspiration than striving to be the best mom you can be. This little meme was found on the Facebook page of a young lady who has faced many challenges in her life, from adoption to being a mom and step-mom, along with many other life trials.
What a stark contrast to the harsh, screaming demands for the right for mothers to choose to kill babies in the womb.
So, you're going to have a baby... Well, actually, it's already a baby, right there inside the mother. The baby is actually at the center of the issue of abortion, not the potential mother, and certainly not the father. The baby. And the woman is already its mother, biologically.
Basics – Life Comes From God
Where have we come in history?
To those fighting for the "right" to legalize the "choice" to have abortions, a baby is seen as anything but the very thing that it is - a new person, an addition to the family, a gift of God, a treasure.
As "believers," we believe that life comes from God. Even with all our modern knowledge, scientists have yet to prove otherwise. They don’t know where life comes from, or how it happens - not a clue!
As a side note, it is curious and amusing to hear the theories as to where and when life first appeared – in a heated pool of water with an accidental spark of electrical energy, or when a few atoms or molecules rubbed together in just the right way, millions of years ago. And from that little bit of ooze everything developed into what we now see as life. That takes much more “faith” (trusting in what you cannot see) than believing that God created everything, in all its wonder and even perfection.
One of the most incredible examples of the marvel of life is the origin and development of a baby in the womb of its mother. The miracle of birth, which I have personally witnessed four times with my own children, is beyond words and total comprehension, as life is.
The Rhetoric for Abortion - Wrong Assumptions by those screaming for Abortion
Good Moms and Bad Moms
There are probably more good moms than dads! The mothering instinct is naturally strong. So much in our modern world has come in to squelch this natural instinct. But believe what you will, it is still there. Just ask any woman who has had an abortion, and see, hear, and feel what she really feels and thinks about this “choice” she has made. It can haunt and torment her conscience for the rest of her life.
What must we do?
For us to restore the vital and critical quality of human love and compassion to America and the world, we must end this abomination of abortion - the wanton killing of babies in the womb. Babies are not to be sacrificed on any altar of human depravity - be it selfishness, laziness, ignorance, or whatever. Mothers and fathers must rise up and do whatever must be done, seeing that raising a child in love is the most important thing we can do in life. It is what LIFE is all about.
If we do not end most abortion, then the downward spiral of our country and culture will not end until the destruction of mankind is the ultimate end. I do not speak here in hyperbole, but in reality. The barbaric ending of a life in the womb - which should be the safest place on earth, where life gets its start - must stop. True respect for LIFE can be restored to our world through the love of God. Without this love and respect, we are nothing but vicious animals.

"I was raised by a Christian minister, Kenneth Hayden, until his death when I was 10. Then my mom married a farmer. So I was raised in a very down-to-earth home. My faith has grown through the years, but both in conjunction with the institutional church and through small groups and individuals, including books as well as group settings, where deep, sincere faith is shared that aligns with Biblical truth."
