You mentioned in one of your initial posts that you were thankful for certain messages because they helped "keep my mind off things." What things?

If you were, in fact, FULLY convinced that what you are planning to do today is of no consequence (possibly already have done), what on earth would you need to keep your mind off of?

Yes, clearly I am of the "anti-choice" group as you would label me; yet, with all of the post-abortive women I have spoken to, the ironic thing is they all have said at the time they had their abortion, they felt like they ‘had no choice.’ You may not be able to relate to that and maybe are under absolutely no duress.

If so, then I can only appeal to you as a daughter of a father who was conceived as a product of incest (she was only 13)… My father was given life and adopted as a newborn. I can only appeal as a mother of 3 amazing sons, one of whom is adopted (I often forget which one unless giving our testimony) and he is amazing and I could not imagine my life with out him! Each of us, my father, myself, my son all are alive and fulfilling our purpose on earth because a birth mom was sacrificial enough to think of the unborn person in her womb over herself. For the vast majority (99%) of unwanted pregnancies, the pregnancy itself occurred because 2 consenting people made a choice to have sex with known possible consequences of pregnancy. I urge you to reconsider.

You have heard the Biblical truth about murder, slaying of innocent blood, etc. all of which God is NOT guilty of as so many on your FB page claim. IF God exists and He is perfectly holy; he made rules, people broke them, He provided MULTIPLE warnings about what would happen if they refused to repent, turn from their sin and obey BEFORE He ever enacted any wrathfully judgment. Does that make Him mean? I don’t think so. It makes Him just and a Man of His Word. It’s just that the consequences truly were/are life and death for God’s children. (Unlike my children where the consequence for disobeying is losing a toy or getting a time out, etc…. However, if I warn my child ahead of time about a particular consequence and he goes ahead and makes the choice to disobey, I am not unfair or mean if I go ahead and give the consequence).

You have heard the truth of science. I studied Biomedical Science, Molecular Biology and Neurodevelopment throughout my education (PhD) and the truth is, life begins at conception. In fact, the baby in your womb has been growing all by itself and will continue to do so until around 6-weeks, when the umbilical cord finally attaches to mom’s placenta! By that time (day 21-24) the heart has already started beating….. All by itself. Just because a 4-week old baby in the womb doesn’t "look" like the final product, doesn’t make it non-human. One can be charged with a felony and get prison time for taking and killing an Eagle’s egg even though it would look more like an omelet than an eaglet…… A human being is no different and far more valuable than a bird. Don’t believe the rhetoric and language of the abortion industry and it’s advocates that it’s "just a clump of cells"; it is such a lie.

Finally, I just wanted to appeal to your conscience, if it hasn’t been completely seared over and is already incapable of receiving Truth or Grace…… God is real and He does exist. He did create you and the baby in your womb and in fact knew both of you before He knitted you. God does command us not to commit murder. There is a life in you. Are you really ready to commit murder and violate God’s commands? Are you really prepared to accept the eternal consequences of such a choice? I pray you are not thinking that you can easily be forgiven….. One who commits premeditated sin cannot presume upon Jesus and the atonement He gave. Can there be forgiveness for such an abomination? Perhaps….. If one is granted TRUE repentance clothed in a Godly sorrow; that would lead to new life.

I do pray your conscience is not seared. I have no doubt that if you at least chose life for the unborn child in your womb, there is a family who would provide love, care, and a home for that precious little one…….[end]

Below is my [this blogger] post on this particular Facebook page highlighting the days leading up to her planned abortion…
