[I wrote this when I was in ninth grade… I found it today and decided to share. My english isn’t perfect and I’m still learning.]
”Over 4,000 million to be mass muredered today.”
When I first learnt about abortion I would even get tears in my eyes because it’s so sad the way those babies are -for lack of a better word-murdered, they’re killed. But now I can read those awful facts and watch those sad videos. It’s not that I enjoy reading this terrible news or anything but I really want to learn about this subject so that if I’m ever in an argument or debate, I’m able to give my opinion in a proper way, stand up for what I believe is right and argue against what I believe is wrong, and maybe someday I can save a someone’s life.
I know that most of the girls, or women, who commit this sin are probably having trouble. Maybe they’re too young and hve no money, maybe their parents or social class will judge them, mybe their boyfriend or husband wants the abortion to happen…there are countless reasons. I always try to see it from the mother’s perspective and even though I try to imagine a situation in hich I would agree with abortion, I just can’t. There’s nothing, in my opinion, that could work as an excuse to take someone’s life. Especially not the life of an innocent baby.
Merriam-Webster says the definition of the word kill is ”to deprive of life.”;”to put an end to”. And isn’t that abortion? As far as I know, abortion is when you don’t give someone the opportunity to live. To put an end to pregnancy, an end to life.
Our religion teaches us that we have a soul since the moment we are conceived. This means that killing an unborn kid is a sin, and a big one. I know that people make mistakes and I cannot go around judging people, I hope every woman who has commited abortion can find God for only He can forgive such tragic decisions…
I will not get into natural abortions, or accidental abortions, cause that’s a whole different topic, but I finish this blog entry with a quote by J.R.R. Tolkien:
”Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
This quote says we shouldn’t judge who should live or who should die. We cannot, or should not ‘give’ death to anyone, but the one thing we can do is give life, we can choose life over abortion. We can change someone’s perspective and make a difference in this world.
Don’t forget to appreciate every day of your life :) Be thankful to your parents who love you, decided to have you, and who take care of you. Some never get to see sunlight…
It’s not fair the way we complain about stupid things in life, when millions of HUMANS don’t get a chance to live. Their rights are taken from them before they can do anything about it.
They need someone to stand up for them. I want to be one of those great people who stand up for those who have been silenced before they even learn speak.
I’m not really bullied in school, but the girls in my class don’t like me. I don’t know why, we’re just very different.
I get along perfectly with the boys in my class, my best friends are guys.. But sometimes I wish the girls would include me in their girly conversations, I don’t have anything against about video games and sports, but sometimes I want to talk about girly things with girls.
… I feel like the Lord is leading me to say this. I don’t know who it’s for exactly, and I don’t need to know…
Whoever you are, I feel like God is simply saying, “Stop running from me.” He’s trying to love you. He’s trying to heal you. He’s trying to lead and guide you, but you keep pulling away and finding other things to cope with. Stop it. NOW.
Surrender and let Him do what he wants and needs to do in your life…

You think that because somebody is prettier than you nobody will like you. But do you know what? That’s a lie. You are one of a kind. Nobody else compares to you. You’re in a league of your own. Just because your legs touch and hers don’t touch doesn’t make you any less than her. We all have been made uniquely. Sure, Other girls might look similar to you but their personality isn’t the same. We are all different. We are all made in the image of God. We all deserve to be treated right. We all deserve to be respected. We all deserve love. You aren’t unlovable. Just because you don’t fit society’s standards doesn’t mean you’re ugly or undesirable. Your worth is found in Christ. Too big or too thin or normal sized you are beautiful and loved. Never compare yourself to others. You are the only you there will ever be.
The priests I know are the most holy, wonderful people you will ever meet. Most of them are. Just because some have messed up in the past doesn’t mean that they’re all the same. That is honestly a very uneducated thing to say. “There are some atheist pedophiles, so I guess they’re ALLLLL…
