October 5:   Today my life began. My parents don’t know it yet. I am smaller than the seed of an apple, but already I am I. And unformed as I am right now, I’m going to be a girl. I shall have blond hair and azure eyes, and I know I’ll love flowers.

October 5:   Today my life began. My parents don’t know it yet. I am smaller than the seed of an apple, but already I am I. And unformed as I am right now, I’m going to be a girl. I shall have blond hair and azure eyes, and I know I’ll love flowers.

October 19:   I’ve grown a little, but I am still too small to do anything by myself. Mother does just about everything for me. And what’s funny, she still doesn’t even know that she is carrying me here right under her heart.  And feeding me with her own blood.

October 23:  My mouth is just beginning now. Just think. In a year or so I will be laughing. Later I will be able to speak. I know what my first word will me-Mother. Who says I’m not a real person yet? I am, just as the tiniest crumb of bread is till truly bread.

October 27:  My heart began to beat today all by itself. From now on it will gently beat all the rest of my life. Without ever stopping to rest. T hen after many years it will tire, and stop, and I shall die. But now I am at not the ending but the beginning.

November 2:  Every day I grow a bit. My arms and legs are beginning to take shape. But I’ll have to wait so long before my little legs will carry me running to my mother’s arms, and before my arms can embrace my father.

November 12:   Now tiny fingers are beginning to form on my hands. Strange how small they are. Yet how wonderful they will be! They’ll pet a puppy, throw a ball, pick a flower, touch another hand. My fingers. Someday they may play a violin or paint a picture.

November 20:  Today the doctor told Mother for the first time that I am lying here under her heart.  Aren’t you happy, Mother? Before long I’ll be in your arms.

November 25:  My mother and father don’t even know that I’m just a little girl. Perhaps they expect a boy. Or twins maybe. But I’ll surprise them. And I want to be called Catherine, like Mother.

December 10:  My face is completely formed. I hope I turn out to look like Mother.

December 13:  Now I’m just about able to see, but it’s still dark all around me. But soon my eyes will open on the world of sunshine—and followers—and little children. I’ve never seen the sea, or a mountain, or a rainbow, either. How do they really look? How do you really look, Mother?

December 24:  Mother, I can hear your heart beating. I wonder if you hear the whispering beat of mine. It’s so even—tup-tup, tup-tup. You’ll have a healthy little daughter, Mother. I know some babies have difficulty entering the world, but there are kind doctors to help mothers and babies. I know, too, some mothers don’t even want their babies. But I can hardly wait to be in your arms, touch your face, look into your eyes. You’re waiting for me, just as I’m waiting for you, aren’t you?

December 28:  Mother, why did you let them stop my life? We would have had such a lovely time together.


Editors’ Note:–This story comes from the scrapbook of motion-picture and T star Loretta Young. Originally written in German by H. Schwab, it appeared in Sodalis magazine in a Polish version, from which this translation was made. We believe, with Miss Young, that this story of an unborn child is eloquent in any language.

 Have you noticed?

1) People against capital punishment are often for abortion?

2) People against abortion are often for capital punishment?

On the face, it seems these statements contradict themselves. Yet, most people will agree with either the first or the second–  in its entirety.

A roaring liberal once attempted to confuse a conservative by asking how they could favor capital punishment and still claim to be against abortion. The answer seems simple to me.

They did not think capital punishment respected life; however, others think that it is abortion which does not respect life.

Are people actually contradicting themselves?Who%20knows%20Man%20shrugging%20his%20shoulders%20wearing%20a%20Q

Not if you look at it this way.

I feel one group is for the destruction of a civil society; one group is for the preservation of a civil society.

Observation: those against capital punishment are often the same ones against the public display of the Ten Commandments.

Let’s look at the second statement: being for capital punishment and being against abortion.  bassinet

The issue here is more than life. It is about innocent life. One life is innocent, one life has been proven not innocent in very grave matters that threaten a civil society.

criminals9When abortion is favored over capital punishment, that chooses to let the criminal live instead of the innocent; in actuality, it condemns the innocent instead of the criminal.

To decide against abortion and to favor capital punishment chooses to give life to the innocent instead of the proven incorrigible criminal in society.baby

With no death penalty, often times these criminals live to further corrupt society through the jail cell marketing of products touting their destructive personalities, often in the form of colorful biographies, and movies made on those biographies for sale to those who feed criminal minds6upon such inerrancy, once again multiplying the detriment to society. This has become such an issue that legislation has been considered that puts any profits from such dealings to families of the victims. What a vicious circle!

Let us never overlook the descriptive word of innocent.

Woe to a society which will not rid itself of crimes against humanity.

And woe to a society who sheds innocent blood!

This article is about SOCIETY , groups of people. If one is repentant of an abortion, there is forgiveness through Christ Jesus when we go to Him seeking that forgiveness without assuming it.  In these cases, a talk with Jesus is now the right  thing to do.
