From the Convention Floor

Proving that NRB is truly a convention that brings the world together, we’ve already had visitors from Belize, United Kingdom, Macedonia, Israel, Canada, Russia, Kenya and Sweden.

One response to “From the Convention Floor

  1. Abortion! I don’t know a woman who has ever had an abortion who didn’t feel badly that she had to have one. To listen to the issue debated throughout America, you would think that women had no problem aborting. To read the rhetoric and to see the anti-abortion crowd holding up their hateful signs you would think it was an easy decision to make. Yes or no. Abort or not abort.

    It is not an easy decision for a woman to make. For some, the decision means life or death. To others it may be inconvenient. To others it may be a result of rape or incest. To others it may come at a time when a woman is still a child herself. And to a great many women it may be just one more child too many that she can’t handle.

    Another part of the complexity is the potential father of the aborted baby. Does he want the abortion? Will he help the mother nurture the child? Was “sex” the extent of his commitment? Was the close encountering just another notch in his conquest belt and he did not expect a pregnancy?

    Then…….you throw in fragility, physical illness, mental issues, no job, no money, no insurance…..and the decision mushrooms into a decision that no one but the woman can and should make.

    It is positively okay for Sarah Palin and Pam Tebow, mother of Heisman trophy winner, Tim Tebow, to rejoice at their decision to bring a child into the world. Sarah says she thought about abortion first but then decided against it. Tebow’s mother was sick with a serious infection and was counseled by her physician to abort. She decided against it. There are many women like them. They thought they could do it despite what people may have said. Other women decide differently. They may have too many additional problems working against them.

    Women are nurturing by nature. The God of all has given them the responsibility of carrying a child to term, delivering the child, and then nurturing the child until they reach adulthood. Women intuitively know when they can do something and when they can’t. They can make their own decisions. Everyone should leave them alone and stop with the “murder” rhetoric and “killing babies” signs they hold up during their anti-abortion marches.

    We must have confidence in women to make their own difficult decisions. You can counsel, advise, or support, but you cannot decide for a pregnant women and tell her she has to go through with a pregnancy.

    To use abortion as a political issue is unconscionable. Holy people help and support. Holy people do not accuse, point fingers, and call women horrible names. Holy people have confidence that others will do what is right and only a woman will know what is right for herself.
