There are no words to describe the storm that is brewing in my heart right now.
I came across a tweet from a fellow parent of an Autistic child, and I just had to share with you what I am so hurt and upset by:
“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican.
“In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”
Yes, as a blogger I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but when you refer to MY/OUR child(ren) to as “God’s Punishment” that is a whole different ballgame.
No, I have never had an abortion, and I do not judge women who have, but in no way does ANY action condone that statement!!!
I apologize for this, but I HAD to vent.
I believe that ALL children are a Gift from God, and those children who have challenges make us smile just as much if not MORE than the “average” child.
