Yesterday as I was driving my girls home from school - my oldest Nikki said this.... "My biology teacher said that the world (evolution) is pro-abortion." As I have shared a couple of times before - her biology teacher is very big on evolution and at every given opportunity tries to swing any topic into an evolution discussion... I believe when he said that the world is pro-abortion he meant that evolution is based on survival of the fittest...(the ability to survive and reproduce in a particular environment)....
I do not believe that the world is Pro -abortion.... I believe that miscarriages happen when there is something wrong.... But I do not see that as an abortion.. The teacher also stated that the woman who miscarries will most likely go to the doctor and get an 'abortion' to remove the excess tissue to avoid dying.... hmmm - okay.. I'm thinking the teacher does not know the difference between an abortion and a D & C... Or is he trying to teach our children to believe that a baby in the womb is not a child but "tissue"?
Many years ago - I did have a miscarriage and I developed a fever - the doctor believed that I may have had tissue left over and performed a D & C (Dilation and Curettage).. This is by no means an abortion!!!!! An abortion is intentionally removing a child from the womb not removing tissue that was left over from a miscarriage... Planned Parenthood would love for all us to believe an abortion is removing 'tissue' but that is not the case.... Abortion - there's a baby.... D & C - there's no baby but there's left over tissue that may need to be removed...
I am a Pro-choice/Pro-life mother... I choose to believe that a child is created at conception... I choose to believe that a child is a blessing.... I choose to not accept abortion as an option... Will I go out and judge and condemn people who choose abortion - absolutely not... and I expect those who choose abortion to not judge and condemn me because my Choice is different than theirs... After all doesn't Pro Choice... mean there's a choice and the choice can be to choose life...
As you can see this is a subject that I have very strong feelings about... I know we live in a 'Free thought - anything goes" society and I pray that the values and beliefs I teach in our home will carry on in our children....
Psalm 136 13-16
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

During the Christmas season - I get many forwarded emails complaining about people saying "Happy Holidays" rather than "Merry Christmas"... Many of the emails are down right nasty... What upsets me about this is that the emails are from people who should be showing grace and love... People who should be setting an example of Christ's love... but what they are showing with these numerous emails and Face Book posts is exactly what turns so many people away from God..... "Christian" - Judgment.... hypocrisy.... anger...
Last year a wise friend of mine said this.... "Don't get angry when someone says "Happy Holidays" rather than "Merry Christmas"... because chances are that person may not know Christ.." For example... My birthday is November 2nd.... to me that is a special day.. But I don't get angry at the cashier at Albertson's for saying "Have a nice day" rather than "Happy Birthday"... She doesn't know me.... so she wouldn't know....
We need to look at "Happy Holidays" as an opportunity to show God's love.. Sending emails... posting Face Book anti "Happy Holidays" posts isn't going to shine for God... It only turns off the ones who may have been seeking Him...
And for the record - The White House has NEVER called the Christmas tree a holiday tree - this is another lie to get people all riled up... Don't let this happen to you... Spread Joy, Peace, and Love..... Snopes - Christmas Tree
Merry Christmas to you..
