"There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right." Martin Luther King Jr.
My heart has been heavy ever since I read yesterday about New York passing the abortion law codifying roe vs. wade & the ever-expanding reproductive health act. I don’t live each day with a political agenda or like discussing the multiple layers of wars & opinions we face in this polarized era. But I am in mourning for the growing number of lives that won’t even be able to enter this world as we make it harder for them to ever have the chance. I empathize with the women who undergo extreme injustice and life-threats and are faced with having to make the hard decision with letting their babies go, but for the ones who stand on the other spectrum declaring that it is their right to remove life from within them startles me to the core. Life is a miracle, and the only carrier of this gift is by Woman. That’s a privilege, an honor, and a joy. It is much more than just a right, or battle to claim your body. The 10 months preparation inside the womb is what we all need and a rite of passage for this life. How can we make the womb tombs? I feel great dismay for the innocent lives of the unborn, the millions of souls that never get the chance or see the light of day. In this day and age where we should see progress and wisdom of the ages propel our future, all the more we are doomed by our own self, self-worth, self entitlement, self righteousness, and self love, which is ultimately SELF HATRED. MLK also said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." I pray our Nation and our people will not silence the voice and cries for life for the unborn. Who will be the next generation, and to whom shall inherit this earth, if we continue to punish the innocent and pursue the genocide of our Nation? Our decisions and choices will reap for us blessings and curses, rewards and consequences. My hope is that we learn how to choose life and be the voice for the voiceless. Everyone deserves to live.
