First Borns Out of Order

I am the “first born” in my family. After years of birthday cards expressing my “special” status, I thought I understood the significance of the position. Only after the birth of my own, did I realize the life-changing affect the first child would have on me. There would never be another “first”…to me he will always be uniquely special!

Another “first” is taking place here in America. It is the sacrifice of millions of first children. Public records suggest that abortion in America is killing them most often.

For years abortive women have “come out,” proudly sharing stories of their personal offspring-killing, through media interviews and t-shirts statements. A shocking new trend is the recording of the bloodshed, as some are filming their abortions, and uploading to the internet, for the gratification or horror of the general public.

Emily Letts is one such woman. She made a video documentation of the “it was right for me” life-ending moments of her first child.

I wonder how abortive women cope when they eventually birth a “right for me” child. Of course most wouldn’t be as crass as Ms. Letts, advertising the participation in their child’s murder, all over the internet for an eternal public record. But they too can never erase their abortive action. How do they mentally and emotionally sort this out?…when their subsequent children, born after an abortion, arrive intentionally “out of order.”

One of Emilys Letts’ many U-tube supporters (ironically named natural-momma) states the more ironic, “If you liked this (Emily’s original video) be sure to…let me know your thoughts in the comments! Sorry about the abrupt ending- mommy-duty calls!”

Abortion is an “abrupt ending” too…to the life of a baby!

Yesterday was Mother’s Day here in the US. It was a special day to celebrate “Mommy-duty.” I have had many duties in life, but none have been more important than being a Mommy!

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward.” (Psalm 127:3/ESV)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it.
