A conversation with a friend reminded me of this post. When it comes to the very very emotional subject of abortions, I am in a position to understand both sides. I’d love to see more dialogue and more compassion, and less yelling at each other. It’s a very painful issue, and much more complex than many realise.
We had someone come to talk to us about abortions in church last night. He didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know, although I’m sure many others hadn’t been aware of a lot of the facts. He showed us a video clip of the developing baby in the womb at around 6-10 weeks (that’s the time that most abortions, at least here in the UK, are done) but that was not new to me, in fact I had seen a better video clip once, probably when I was on the pregnancy counselling course – it was beautiful, I really felt like I was watching what it says in Psalm 139, “you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
But this guy showed us another video clip, which I couldn’t bear to watch for more than a few seconds. It was a clip showing what actually happens in an abortion.
