In 2012, the world learned of the case of Savita Halappanavar, a pregnant woman in Ireland who died because a Catholic hospital refused to allow her to terminate the pregnancy of her 17 week fetus once she began miscarrying. Savita’s death sparked a roaring debate in the country over their abortion law, which is so strict that a patient literally could die while waiting for doctors to determine whether her life is in jeopardy enough to allow a procedure.
Here in America, even with legal abortion, some are still facing the same life or death situations, all because they have the misfortune to have a Catholic hospital as their nearest caregiver. It is because of this that the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). READ MORE!!!!
This is how the Religious Right Takes the Joy of Christmas out of Christmas and then wonder why fewer and fewer young people attend Christian Churches. The act as if Jesus gave them the right to judge and condemn the world, which makes Jesus look U-G-L-Y--INSTEAD THE BEAUTIFUL SAVIOR--AT THE SAME TIME WHINING AND CRYING THAT THER ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO CELEBRATE DIFFERENT HOLIDAYS THAN CHRISTMAS---THIS TIME OF THE YEAR THE BEST GIFT WE CAN GIVE EACH OTHER AND TO JESUS HIMSELF--IS TOLORANCE--FOR IS IT NOT WRITTEN THAT GOD IS LOVE .
I remember leaning how Free Will is our Gift back to God. It was a lesson my younger son taught me at a Professional Wrestling Match that I took him to, since the WWE was in Cleveland around Christmas that year. I remember he was 17 at the time, there was a Diva Bikini Contest, many men were going ring side to get a better view. I wanted to be the cool, with it, Mom, so I pointed out the fact that if he wanted to join the others at ring side that he was free to. Then, he turned around and told me that he knew that, but he would just rather watch the contest next to me, instead, and placed his arm over my shoulders as we watched the contest--then I understood free will--THIS IS THE GIFT THAT GOD GETS WHEN SOMEONE CHOSES HIM, NOT BY FORCE NOT BY COHERTION--BUT BY FREE WILL--WHEN IT IS DONE THOSE WAYS IT IS FOR OUR OWN PERSONAL SELFISH GLORY--GLORY THAT WE HAVE STOLEN FROM GOD.
In Addition--THIS IS THE REAL SLIPPERY SLOPE--FIRST RESTRICT LEGAL ABORTIONS THEN END ALL LEGAL ABORTIONS--EVEN THOSE FROM RAPE AND INCEST AND AT THE COST OF THE MOTHER'S LIFE. AND THEN TAKE AWAY A WOMAN'S PERSONHOOD.
THIS--THIS IS WHY ABORTIONS DO NEED TO BE KEPT LEGAL, SAFE AND RARE--THE BEST WAY TO KEEP IT RARE IS BY LIVABLE INCOME--WHEN PEOPLE CAN AFFORD TO HAVE CHILDREN THEN THEY HAVE CHILDREN. FULL EMPLOYMENT THAT PAYS THE BILLS = THE WAY AND THE MEANS TO START A FAMILY.
