Fetuses Are People Too!

“You shall not murder.”   Exodus 20:13   (God the Father)

“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven…Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”   Matthew 18:10 & 14   (God the Son)

This from the London Daily Mail – Identical Twin Daughters Born at 22 Weeks. Makayla and Makenzie were born on December 8, 2019 at 22 weeks, making them the second most premature babies to survive. Ever. Before saying any more, let’s look at some pictures. The girls are so small, so frail at 22 weeks one might wonder if they aren’t aborted and being harvested for tissue. Nope. These doctors are battling to save their lives, not take them.

Makayla weighed 1 pound, 3 ounces at birth, and Makenzie weighed a little less at 1 pound, 1 ounce. They both have needed surgeries. One girl had a hole in her heart that needed an operation and the other had surgery on her back for something else.

When they came out, they started breathing on their own, which was critical. The doctors said if they hadn’t started breathing themselves, saving them would have been about impossible. As of today they are not out of the woods, but everyone is hopeful. The lesson here is that people want to live! Sometimes they just need help. That is true for the infant who cannot feed herself, the child who doesn’t yet know how to navigate the world, the ill, and the elderly. Once we accept killing fetuses – who are people too – it becomes easier to kill the infirm and the elderly.

Here are other articles I’ve written concerning abortion and killing the sick and elderly.

Weasel Words & Wiggle Room is about how people with a pro-abortion/euthanasia/right to die agendas use nice sounding words to hide the ugly truth.

Man in the Netherlands Euthanized Due to Alcoholism relates how a man who couldn’t beat his alcoholism decided to end it all. He had a big going-away party with family and friends, which ended in the doctor killing him. His brother probably said the most honest thing I saw quoted in the article.

“If it was not so terrible, it would have been nice.” Um…

Told You So…. Is me gloating over being right about the spread of euthanasia. An elderly woman in a nursing home had a right to die clause regarding quality of life in her admission paperwork. Apparently, there was a disagreement over what constitutes “quality of life” and who gets to make that call. The family came in and helped hold her down while the doctor killed her. Excuse me…euthanized her.  Sorry. My bad.

Hope or No Hope is about a young couple who were told that their unborn daughter was defective and likely to die shortly after birth. They were urged to abort her – Eva – instead of carrying her to term. Read about their decision.

An Amazing Life recounts the story of Melissa Ohden. She was aborted and put in a garbage can. The attending nurse just couldn’t let that happen, and rescued Melissa, now 40 and married with children.

The Trick Baby – A repost from someone else’s site, the author was the child of a prostitute, a trick baby, exposed to all the drugs in her body.  Find out what happened.

There are many more. Just click on the Abortion and Euthanasia categories at the bottom of this page.

Let me close this with Shakespeare’s famous Seven Ages of Man:

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon
,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness
and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

Today let’s add an eighth stage to Shakespeare’s list and put it at the top.

Fetus; more than the parents’ desire and less than self-sufficient. Desirous of life yet not knowing the life to come; yearning for breath without yet knowing air…and at the mercy of all.
