I am in tears

...the only prayer I can make is, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing."

There's a child I will never meet, and I will forever wonder whether I--would offering to adopt have made any difference? Probably not, but I would at least know I tried. It's not a matter of politics for me. It's never been a matter of politics for me. And I can't apologize if this post offends someone, because this is a matter of the concience and many, many tears (I've had at least three crying jags while trying to type this), and I CANNOT not share this video.

(O Lord, have mercy upon us.)
Indexing: ,
I pray that these videos have some affect on people who've never really sat down and thought about what's going on. To help them realize that it's not a question of choice but of mass murder.
That is so very true. it is the life of a human being at stake. There are huge waiting list to adopt here, so the babies would be loved and wanted.
i understand your sadness. [hugs]

please do keep in mind, though, that abortion is not at all planned parenthood's largest service, nor is it the only thing they do. while this might be disgusting, they also provide care for women who KEEP their pregnancies, as well as other sexual services (STD testing, birth control, etc) that keeps people of lower incomes or in need of anonymity safe and healthy.

i'm politically pro-choice but personally pro-life, though, so again, i feel your sadness, and i am giving you hugs.

Like I said, this isn't about politics for me. I don't know how deep the rot goes, I don't know if the institution can be saved. I don't really care. I just know that ...

Dammit, I'm crying again.

How long has this been going on? Why hasn't anyone blown the whistle before now? (How can the perpetrators sleep at night?) I don't want it to turn into a witch-hunt, but I do find myself a little concerned that so many of the news reactions seem to be automatic defenses of PP, and not horror at what has been uncovered.
Ugh, this is just utterly sickening (I couldn't even watch the whole thing because it was making me ill). Sorry but Planned Parenthood is a messed up institution and it's high time people started calling them out for the crap they're doing.

Or, better yet, people need to start taking responsibility for their actions and sex life, and stop making a B line for the nearest, most convenient quick fix when things go wrong. People need to stop treating sex like it's a toy.
People need to stop treating sex like it's a toy.

Very much yes! That's what led to the abortion I mentioned in my post--a bored teenager doing stupid stuff without considering potential consequences.
