Uncomfortable positions

If you are looking for a laugh today, you need to stop reading right here.

I am "having a life" for a little while this weekend, so no long post, but this morning I checked one of my favorite news blogs and saw this, and no matter how you feel about abortion, I think you need to get real clear on your stand because our young women need us now more than ever in the history of this world.

Whatever choices you may make, they stay with you and will shape you and hold you accountable every single day of your life.  Sorry to be the one to break it to you if you hadn't figured this out already.

When you are a young woman, you cannot even imagine how long your life is going to go on.  You will not be able to understand even this concept for many years.  And that is just due to the hormones, honey, and nobody's fault at all.  In fact, it's the way God designed it. 

I do not think we will ever see a world without abortion.  I don't even think we have ever seen a world without abortion, whether it was accomplished by some Pennyroyal in your tea that you bought from the wisewoman of the village or a "free" women's health provider in a modern clinic.  It has always been with us.

When Roe vs. Wade passed, I, like most people I think, assumed it would be safe and rare.  Somewhere we have slipped off the track.  How we got to the point that there could be any question as to the seriousness of that decision, not to mention the consequences of such an action, is beyond me. 

If you are still here, please see the link below and my comment.  Feel free to leave a comment also.

We are the adults now.  It is up to us. 

True story.

And after that, spend the weekend with someone you love.  God bless you all and if you are not praying for our country, now would be a good time.


  1. You're so right. Young women need to figure this one out. It will make a huge difference in their lives and in the society they live in.
    I agree tht abortion will always be with us. But what a difference when the state and the culture condone it.
    Thank you for the link.

  2. In Germany all you have to say is that the child will give you financial hardship and the gov provides a free abortion. Whatever happened to personal resposibility???

  3. It's about that bad here, now, too. Did you see the story in
    Wa state where the school arranged a free abortion for an underage girl as long as she didn't tell her parents?
    People need to wake up.

  4. I personally dont believe abortion is ok. I got pregnant with a coke-head's baby (i really didnt believe he did coke!!!) when I was 19. I had my daughter shortly after I turned 20 and she will be 4 in June. If you are "responsible" enough to have sex without a condom, you better be responsible enough to raise a possible child.

    You can also guarantee that I will not have more kids until Liz is older and I am more financially stable. For instance, in May we are FINALLY getting our own apartment. I have lived with my mom since my dad kicked me out upon hearing I was pregnant.

    Also, if our children should become unwed parents, we should help them out. I know that if Liz ever becomes an unwed mom, i sure as hell wont kick her out!


These are my thoughts, which sometimes drive me crazy and sometimes keep me sane, but are always entertaining. I call this Lace Your Days With Hope because I can't find enough hope to make an entire quilt out of. Stay tuned, and add your own!
