A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:


'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.


So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?'

...

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'


The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.'


She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.


Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.


The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!


'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.'


The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.


He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb.


The crime is the same!


If you agree, please SHARE. Together we can help save precious lives!


"Love says I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person. Abortion says I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself..."


Jesus sacrificed Himself for the good of sinners! That's perfect love!

 Yes, this thread annoys me too. It is an overdramatic and bizarre attempt to guilt women out of choosing for themselves what to do with their bodies,their lives. Arghhh....

I just read through this whole thing. 

Of course pro-lifers love this story.  It puts the abortion debate squarely on their terms.  It makes abortion be about babies -- and pro-choicers look like they have no morals, because they're stuck defending what week a fetus should be considerd a baby, an argument based on science, and while I love science, such an argument feels very cold it does come off cold and calculating.

The thing is, the right to abortion is not about the baby (or fetus, or group of cells, or whatver you want to call it). It's been about the woman carrying it.  In this story, the woman's needs are unimportant - that's why pro-lifers love it - because they, also, believe that her needs do not matter.
