Our nation has just voted a man into the presidential office that believes his daughters should never have to be punished by a baby? How sad is that....that anyone could view a baby as punishment? I wonder if he believes that certain babies are more of a punishment than others....like if your baby has a genetic defect, you must have done something really bad. Probably...considering that he is a staunch supported of abortion rights and studies show that 84% of down syndrome babies never make it to the outside.
The fact is, that of all the women I know who have birthed a baby that was conceived during "less than ideal times for having a baby"..NONE of them view that child as punishment....most would say a blessing. The same holds true for those whose babies are born, less than perfect. The only regrets are for the babies that aren't there.
A friend of mine just published this blog post. I think we should all read it, it is so very true.
