A LIFE-ALTERING DECISION - Tuesday Inspiration

by Brenda Nelson May. 25, 2010 3653 views

This was one of the first things that came to my mind when the Tuesday Inspiration was posted. I took this in front of a local Catholic church.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place - your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:13-16).

I'm so proud of you for posting this Brenda! I've already received negative comments for posting religious themed pictures. This is something I believe strongly in too, as I am Catholic. Thank you for sharing this message :)

I too live in a country where it is the woman´s right to make such a desicion and I would not want it any other way. We can see in the history where the restrictions led us - the poor women died in the hands of not educated people who performed abortions....There are circumstance where I would never judge the woman, who makes such a difficult desicion.
This is not a perfect world we are living at....

What's so very sad is that there are women in such horrific life situations who feel there is no other option. I'll be honest....too me it's just as devastating that children already here suffer from hunger, abuse, disease, and poverty but that doesn't get the press that abortion issues do. As a former educator I agree with and have seen some sad situations like HoosieratHeart. Thanks for bringing up this controversial topic, Brenda.

It is a powerful photo! Artist has been using their art to make statements for hundreds of years!

My biggest wish is that people (especially politicians) who advocate Pro-life would not be the biggest whiners of welfare. It's hypocritical. If people want children to be born we have to be ready to pay to take care of them. As a educator, I know of so many children's situations that would totally break you heart.

That is a heartbreaking ------ that only women can decide to take and I think it is up to the individual to make it so we shouldn't condemn them and concentrate on prevention, that is- contraception to avoid this happening.

Like "DancingDolphin" I'm glad I live in a country where it's a woman's right to make this decision for herself.

And I'm glad we can live together no matter our differences. And we are all different which makes life so special.

So the theme is "decisions"? I'm glad I live in a country where it's a woman's right to make this decision for herself!
