Your Glass House on Abortion

If you live in a glass house and I live in a glass house which one of us should throw stones…well in the case of Abortion those against it obviously feel that they should throw the stones…BIG Stones.

glass houseWith news of events such as the recent Planned Parenthood Shooting in Colorado Springs, CO I immediately begin to think of all of the issues people have with Planned Parenthood, mainly the fact that they do abortions. The full details of the recent events at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado have not been released, but ones mind must instantly think Planned Parenthood was the target.

Planned Parenthood is often the target when it comes to anti-abortion groups and they usually are not afraid to stake out and speak up while holding fort right outside of the clinics. With the recent release of information from anti-abortion groups that Planned Parenthood clinics sell tissues leftover from abortions for profit, the abortion issue has escalated once again.

Personally my belief is this, if a woman finds herself pregnant and feels that she cannot or does not want to go on with the pregnancy that is her choice to have an abortion. Whether the pregnancy occurred within a relationship, as a result of rape etc. It is her choice and that choice should not be taken away from her.

When we begin to pick and choose what other people should and should not do with their lives we become hypocrites because I am pretty sure that if the book of our life was opened and read aloud chapter by chapter others would find many sinful acts that they feel we should have chosen a different path on.

Book Snippet – The Best of Simple

The Best of SimpleI am currently reading The Best of Simple by Langston Hughes. The first handful of pages in I immediately realized how exceptional this work of literature is. Langston Hughes, one of the greatest to ever put pen to paper did a marvelous job with this one. The stories included in this collection are so relevant, yet comical. Each story probing you to read the next. While I get back to my reading, I’ll just leave this little snippet here for y’all from The Best of Simple.

I would pray a don’t-want-to-have-no-more-wars prayer, and it would go like this: ‘Lord,’ I would say, I would ask Him, ‘Lord, kindly please take the blood off of my hands and off of my brothers’ hands, and make us shake hands clean and not be afraid. Neither let me nor them have no knives behind our backs, Lord, nor up our sleeves, nor no bombs piled out yonder in a desert. Let’s forget about bygones. Too many mens and womens are dead. The fault is mine and theirs, too. So teach us all to do right, Lord, please, and to get along together with that atom bomb on this earth–because I do not want it to fall on me–nor Thee — nor anybody living. Amen!”
–Jesse B. Semple,
