Here is a story that should warm all our hearts.
"I wake up in the morning and I see her big smile and think, "I'm so happy I get to spend another day with you, I get to see what you're going to show me today," says her mother, Vicki McKenzie, 32. "Every day with her is a birthday for us."
A year ago, Vicki and her husband, Ian, 33, had no idea whether their baby was going to survive one minute out of the womb, let alone one year. In March 2009, at 30 weeks gestation, doctors at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa discovered the baby had a heart condition called critical aortic stenosis, which causes a narrowing of the main outlet valve in the left ventricle. Without treatment, the baby would likely die of heart failure before or during birth.
Everyday is special for this family. There was no, my body, my choice garbage. It was all about, my baby, whatever I can do to save her. They did everything they could to help this precious baby girl survive. I applaud them, and hope it all works out for them.
It really highlights the selfishness of women who think their bodies are more important than their babies. Remember how years ago it was considered okay to sterilize females who were mentally deficient because they might have mentally deficient children. We cringe about that now. We think we are so modern and sophisticated, that we have evolved as a society, when in fact we have regressed. Now we are not sterilizing the mentally deficient anymore, but we as a society are condoning the death of perfectly healthy babies because the mother doesn't want stretch marks, or the responsibility of raising a child on their own.
We are not more "progressive", we are regressive, and we should be ashamed that we are too scared of the radical left feminists to even enact a law that would protect babies after 20 weeks. Think about it, 20 weeks is over 4 months of pregnancy, this is not a blob of cells anymore, ask any mother who has heard their babies heartbeat, whether that is a blob of cells or a baby.
Feminists refuse to evolve. They chant "my body, my choice" like little robots without feeling, or a sense of what damage they do to society and themselves by not just condoning abortion but promoting it as a method of birth control.
When finally some politician has the balls to stand up for the unborn children that are being slaughtered, our society will be able to move forward. Right now the opposition is more concerned about protecting terrorists than they are about protecting our most precious resource, unborn babies.
Gender selection is not the problem, allowing abortion up until the point of birth is the problem. We should be ashamed as a nation that we allow that to happen. And for the feminists that will tell us that late term abortions are rare, well so too are women that are raped who get pregnant. I would like to see a study done on how many women who are raped actually get pregnant.
Let's be "progressive" and ban abortions. After all, we know how lefties love to ban stuff, and this would be one ban I could get behind 100%!
