The YMCA and… abortion?

So today I went to a kickboxing class with my best friend, Ariella, at our local YMCA. And man, am I ever tired! You don’t stop moving during that class for the entire hour. No breather. Just kicking. And punching. Even though I’m pretty skinny, I’m not a huge fan of exercising. I know- I’m a wimp!

Now, on to today’s subject- abortion. Over the past couple of days I’ve been thinking about it a lot, and I thought I might as well get around to blogging about it. Being a Christian and all, I guess you can kind of predict where I stand in the whole abortion matter- I am pro-life. I think abortion is murder, I really do. One of my friends is pro-choice, and somehow she and I got to talking about abortion a couple of days ago. She, of course, said the the baby involved isn’t really a baby since it hasn’t been born. But did you know by week 12 that the baby is already very complex and human? My friend also argued that the woman should be able to choose what happens to the baby, since it’s growing in her body. But who are we to choose whether another innocent human being lives or dies? That’s not our job- that’s God’s. Terminating a human life for selfish reasons is just that- selfish. The baby is not just a meaningless blob of tissue- it’s a BABY. I was reading this article earlier today, and it brings up some very good points. But what really popped out at me is the abortion methods they listed. I mean, can you imagine the pain involved for the fetus? Here’s another good article on abortion. If you’re not totally convinced on where you stand in the whole issue, I suggest you read them both.

Anyways, the bottom line is abortion is wrong. It’s inhumane and cruel and it’s MURDER. And that’s that. Now, I think I should be hitting the hay. I think I may pass out anyways (kickboxing really isn’t my thing…).
