Anyone else seen this?
I'm sorry if this has already been posted. Did not see it.
I've been reading some pro-choice slanted news as well to try and get the whole picture. I still feel grossed out by what the woman did and feel she murdered her child.
Naturally, I posted the article on Facebook and one of my old friends (who's uh... super opinionated) responded with: "Her body, her right, until someone else is willing to step in and pay for her medical care, etc."
My sister piped right up with, "It's called the health department or adoption agency. That is gross. The baby could have survived outside of the womb at that point. What's the difference between that and a dumpster baby? Not a whole lot."
Look, I'm a pretty liberal gal. I was raised pro-choice. I gotta tell you, folks, this disturbs me. The amount of sentiment praising what this woman did makes me want to cry. At no point when I was tentatively pro-choice would I felt this way. She wants to claim the baby felt no pain? A baby has a heartbeat at about 4 weeks.
Good gravy. I know I'm late to the game but I get why people say about things like this, "No wonder our children do what they do and no wonder society is how it is." I don't judge this mother. I blame our society and our communal beliefs and values. Values are what we put our time, money, and energy into. Our society puts value on some unwholesome stuff.
I need/am giving virtual hugs. This breaks my heart.
