Give some thought to the ‘boarder babies’

There seems to be no end to the abortion argument and it never ceases to amaze me that anyone can assume they have the right to tell a woman she cannot have any abortion. The truth is a woman has the right to do with her body as she pleases.

Is abortion wrong? I think we should wait for God to pass judgment on that, because only God, not man, has that right.

I have a question for anti-abortion people. Do you know what a boarder baby is? It is a baby that may have been better off if it had been aborted. I have asked that question of several anti-abortion supporters and not one of them knew the answer.

A boarder baby is a baby born in a hospital by a woman who does not want that baby. In many, or most cases, the baby is born with a drug or alcohol addiction or worse. As soon as the mother can, she leaves the hospital and leaves that little baby behind. The hospital has to provide room and board for that little unwanted baby making it a boarder baby.

But that is not the end of the story. Hello anti-abortion people are you still reading?

Close your eyes; now picture in your mind that little unwanted baby lying in the hospital nursery and the only attention it ever receives is when a nurse comes in to change a dirty diaper or put a bottle in its mouth.

You folks spend a lot of time and effort at anti-abortion meetings and rallies. With your eyes still closed, try to imagine how much that little unwanted baby would love it if you skipped a meeting and went and picked it up and held it in your arms and loved it. It never gets that attention.

You might want to remember: Good thoughts are worthless — Good deeds are blessed.

“But let none of you suffer as a murderer or as a thief or as an evil doer or as a busy body in other mens’ matters.” — Peter 4:15

In my thoughts, if we all would mind our own matters and kept our nose out of other mens’ matters the world would be a better place.
