    and I've said this to people's faces... you want to protest abortion, fine.  Adopt a child for every clinic you picket.  Otherwise, Jesus had a word for you: hypocrite.

      while i was eight months pregnant no less.  i was originally replying to a friend who posted about federal funding paying for abortions.  i said something about having to pay for wars or something i don't remember.  somehow i ended up in an argument with this guy i don't know.  he insisted that he adopted two kids whose mothers were going to abort htem thus saving them from death.  i had said that since men can't carry babies they have no say.  

      now mind you, i was eight months pregnant.  so what if you adopted kids who might have been aborted.  do you know what women go through during a pregnancy?  what stress it puts on them.  now imagine being a kid.  i was 26 when i had my oldest.  Abortion was never a consideration for me at that time.  But only the woman going through it can make that decision for herself.  It is HER LIFE!!!  how many kids are sitting in foster care that this guy didn't adopt!!  my guess is his wife couldn't have kids so they adopted....  so it was a selfish thing he did not saintly.  sure it's great that girls have options if they want to carry the kid to term, but trying to make yourself out to be something of a hero because you adopted a baby the girl obviously CHOSE to have it.  

      HOPE!!! it does a body good.
