Save the babies

To the editor:

When I was a little girl, I used to love to play house with my sister.

We would take all our baby dolls and sit them on the couch or in chairs and pretend we were a family. In the wintertime, we would take four chairs and form a “house” and play for hours.

If the babies “misbehaved,” we’d whip them, but not too hard. We’d even pretend they were crying. That always hurt my feelings. I could imagine the most pitiful of cries, and I’d always run to my “baby” and hold her, loving her and telling her I was sorry. I always felt guilty when I whipped them and made them cry. When the dolls were worn out with frayed arms and legs and no hair from too many shampoos, we’d have a “funeral” for them, and we never saw them again.

Perhaps that’s why I have such a difficult time understanding abortion. At the time of an abortion, there is no one standing to say “I’m sorry” to these innocent babies who are either burned to death by saline or literally torn limb-from-limb and sometimes removed piece-by-piece from their mother’s womb.

They are “disposed of” in the “proper, lawful way,” but with no funeral. They never felt someone hold them close and say “I love you.” They never had a chance at life because theirs was so senselessly stripped away.

I believe there was a purpose for every baby who has ever been aborted. They could have been doctors, lawyers, nurses, policemen, ministers. Who knows? They never had a chance.

I won’t have to answer for the “babies” I buried as a child playing house because my dolls had no soul. But someone will have to give an account to Almighty God for every abortion. The souls of those babies are with Jesus, but their blood is on someone’s hands. It’s time put an end to the senseless epidemic of abortion in our country.

Listen. Can’t you hear the babies crying?
