I have steadfastly avoided this thread since you wrote it, one: because I am a women, capable of bearing children and having done so, and two: well,
that's a long story with too much TMI, and that should give you an idea.
For many, this is a highly charged, highly emotional discussion. Period, end of story. No wondering, then, why it has become something of a
flashpoint and litmus test of US politics.
Having said all that, I usually do not reply to a thread unless I have read all the responses, thought and gone through the empathetic evaluations of
each persons' take on it. I simply can't do this here. And I apologize. Maybe for that reason I should not even reply. But I am sure there are
others in the world with my experience and feelings, so I will caution a reply.
There are many "murders," here, where we are now, whatever and wherever that really is...
Nameless, faceless, and often put through so many tiers of "business," are called "white collar crimes." Many of them justify themselves by the
mantle of "progress," or "scientific learning or endeavor."
Such is the life we live here.
I am a being, housed in this body, which happens to have the ability to produce a new life. I completely respect and regard that as sacred, both my
body's ability to perform that function, and that new life--which is not, by the way, an extension of "me." That new life, is just what those
words mean, a new, independent, and therefore, includes to possibility of miracles inherent within the concept of what life is.....it can save us, it
can provide for us, it can develop into something and someone that represents and pushes us forward into a better place for all other life,,,,,,or
But, have you taken a good look around you, and comprehended where you are? Do you not see the paradox of being a woman, here and now? I am a being
looking for God, wishing He/She/It were real, but I know where I am now, at least through my personal experience, is someplace that all definitions
and names are totally up for grab, and as long as it is that way, what should be a blessing of physically being able to give life is a responsibility
that goes beyond that which I can control or choose, and may simply introduce another being to living as a shell for something other than the inherent
development of said being's own, naturally occurring mind and consciousness.......
