I am pro-life because I know now what it means to have a child, and a grandchild and how it impacts your life in a dramatic way. The God that created this universe and created life inside of me knows far better than I could ever imagine what course I need to take. I have two children and three grandchildren. I wouldn’t want to miss any of them being in my life.
It wasn’t always that way. I believed in choice at one time, But I am much wiser now and my pride has fallen away and I now embrace humility and surrender to the power of God and his ways for me.
I became pregnant at 24, unmarried and not happy about the consequences. The father was not happy either. But, even then, at 24, we chose LIFE. We chose to stand up for our consequences and do the best we could at the time. We delivered a baby that was very, very sick. She lived only 7 days.
In the NICU I held her as she died in my arms. I fell in love with that little baby and I knew from then on that life inside of a woman is not hers to cast aside because of uncomfortable consequences. It is a LIFE inside and outside the womb. It is a LIFE small or large. It is a LIFE from beginning to end.
