Today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. It's a bleak reminder of all we have lost, all the souls who've gone before us by our own hands, all the destruction we continue to wreak on our own humanity. I have deep sadness for the babies who were not loved into this life, and deep compassion for mothers who felt they could not make a different decision.
On the other hand, our metro newspaper today published this article, meant-- as the author states-- to cast a different light on abortion practices in our state and elsewhere. Obviously, the message I took away from the words is quite different, but, please, draw your own conclusions:
"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes beheld my unformed substance. In your book were written all the days that were formed for me, when none of them as yet existed." (Psalm 139:14-16)
