After a while, some words and phrases tend to lose their impact. Let’s try a few…
Atrocity… Genocide… Here’s one that we’ve heard a lot lately… Late Term Abortion. So, how about you? Any reaction? Up until a short time ago, when I’d hear this phrase in a news story or read it in a quick blurb on someone’s Facebook page, I confess that it meant very little. Just words, right? Well, that changed recently after reading about the horrific procedures done in abortion clinics that do “late term” abortions.
What I learned was that babies [To be clear, we are talking about someone’s tiny son or daughter] were actually being born alive and then killed by so called “doctors” in horrific ways. Some babies were just left to die, others were literally executed. Here. In America.

In the case of rape or incest, the woman had no choice in her pregnancy so those are very different circumstances.
