I just read that the Pope told his people that not having children is selfish.
Why doesn't he have a bunch? I'm sure he could impregnate some willing Pope Groupies.
Am I going to hell?
I told a friend the other day that ironically, one of the reasons I am most firm in my belief that abortion should be legal and easily available is that I love my own children so much. I know what it means to raise a child and I know how I worry, even now that they are grown, endlessly, about their health, their happiness, their lives. I know that accepting the miracle of bringing a life into this world also means accepting the life-long responsibility of it. The never-ending fear for their safety.
You don't just pop a kid out and then move on with your life, tra-la-la.
And anyone who thinks that that is how it works is either insane or ignorant or completely unfit to raise a child.
When you say "yes" to a pregnancy, you are saying "yes" to completely changing your life and not everyone is either capable or desirous of doing that. And the result is often seen in children who are abused so severely that given the choice, they probably would say they wished they'd never been born.
Now do something about THAT, all you "pro-life" people who claim that every life is precious.
Well, that's my tiny rant for the day.
I am still struggling. I have much to do and cannot just hide in bed.
Here are my ducks.
I went out to pick camellias but the bees were having their way with the blossoms, nestling in the heart of them.
I left them where they were.
