Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

do no harm?

As I see it there are three avenues to the whole abortion issue:  Pro-life, Pro-choice, Pro-abortion.  For years now the cry from the Pro – choice group has been “let women choose what is right for them.” 

Yet what choice does the baby have?   Pro-life steps in and speaks for the child.  It is my belief that life starts at conception.   I have counseled women who have had abortions.  None of them have shared anything ‘pro’ about that choice after the fact.  Praise God He does bring healing and restoration.     

President Obama’s administration is looking at overturning the law President Bush passed protecting doctors and nurses from being forced to do something that goes against what they believe to be true.   If this is overturned it will mean that doctors and nurses will have to go against their conscience, violate their own beliefs or resign from practicing.   Where is the choice for them? 

“Do no harm” is a part of the  Hippocratic Oath.   For many doctors and nurses this means to cherish life at all stages.  There has been much research done on how to stop miscarriages and the things they now can do to aid in bringing a baby to full term.    I am only assuming here, but I think the problem might be that more and more doctors are refusing to abort babies.  

The whole partial birth abortion, I wonder if anyone from the Obama administration has observed this procedure?  What is next?  A law requiring only certain people get to have life saving efforts?  If so then who decides?  Yikes.

  1. ” It is my belief that life starts at conception.”

    That is just a belief! It is not fact. So law shouldn’t be built around Christian belief rather than evidence.

  2. But a law that forces someone to go against such a belief. Hmmm what other doors will that open? What’s the next step?? What other decisions will be made that we will have no say in?? What happen to freedom to choose for ourselves? Does that only apply when the choice one makes fits someone elses agenda? Furthermore why does there need to be a law? Just find another doctor. Surely there are lots of them, this is so common place or at least that is what some would have one think.

    Evidence?? Yes I suppose that at birth you would have evidence. Yet there is no proof that life doesn’t start at conception. It is one belief vs another. By the time most abortions are preformed the baby has a heart beat. Does that constitute life? Yet this blog isn’t about the process of abortion but about taking away someones right to choose not to participate.

  3. If people are truly pro choice, then they should have no problem with a person choosing not to perform abortions. It is their choice, isn’t it?

  4. Curt – one would think that would be the case. Of course then why the push for a law requiring them to recommend and perform abortions? Why indeed?

  5. I was a victim of a late term abortionist. My story is different, true. I did not choose to lose our Eli.. he had passed away at 16+ weeks.. and we were forced, after days and days of labor induction, to see a “specialist.” I have a first hand account on my blog. Its on the upper right hand.. called the Beginning. No one should be forced to endure what I did.. and certainly NO doctor should be required to be a tool for such evil.
