Victim

I'll never know the sweet caress
With which a mother's hand can bless;
Nor ever feel her tender kiss
Imparting safe, warm, precious bliss.

I'll know too well the terror cold
Of martyr facing lions bold;
Their pow'r unchecked will waste my life
With poison and the surgeon's knife.

My silent throes will thus adorn
My helpless frame in death forlorn.
They say I'm not a living child
But more like creatures in the wild.

I'm “not a child”—and not because
My hands resemble creatures' paws—
It's only that their length is shown
In millimeters ere I'm “grown.”

Is it because I cannot cry
In strains you hear, that I must die?
Is it for this my life is sold
For ease, convenience, coins, and gold?

I'm weak and helpless, silence-bound,
And when I'm killed I make no sound.
It's only you for me can say—
Let's end abortion in our day.

Worth Fighting For extension

Here is something we have been working on for a while that has started coming to fruition. We have set up a wordpress blog for some incoming freshmen who are interested in joining this fight. Go check it out! http://wearefightingfor.wordpress.com/

What Next? -Continued-

This last article got fairly long so I split it into two.

Now here is what I don't understand. Abortion is a massive industry in this country alone. Why then must pro-choice activists still behave so radically? Why must they lie about pro-lifers as if we were wolves in sheeps clothing? In other words, what more do they want? They have money. They have government support. They have influence and reputation favored by millions of Americans. Yet they continually struggle as if they were the minority and persecuted by those who disagree with them.

"...what do antis think they’re doing for their movement by being hostile and divisive?"

"I call them anti-choice advocates because that is what they are."

"Abortion providers are on the front lines of the critical struggle to ensure that abortion is safe and accessible. They regularly defend women's lives and health against aggressive abortion opponents seeking to deprive women access to safe abortion care."

"I find it insulting how everybody is "anti-choice" and interested in destroying women's rights and whatnot..."

"On Ash Wednesday, a traditional day for believers to repent, anti-choicers kicked off the “40 Days for Life” protests, so believers can avoid focusing on their own sin and instead scream at others for perceived sexual sin, while also avoiding thinking about their own mortality by demanding others give life against their will."

These and many more quotes available on our friend the Internet (just as a side, if you read these kinds of articles and look at the comments below them you may notice a lot of language being used to emphasize points. I noticed a lot of f-bombs among other things, which goes to show the anger displayed on these pages).

How far is the pro-choice movement willing to go? Will they be satisfied once every woman in the country decides to have abortions as an alternative to raising children? Will those who care about babies' lives have to be utterly silenced and forgotten so that peace may reign? Or is it that PP feels the pro-life movement is its biggest business competitor? Maybe we should give St. Joseph's hospital a new name. I like Women's Rights Hospital myself.
