A young woman writes an open letter to the child she is about to abort and posts it online.

I want to start by saying that I am skeptical of this being a sincere post. I am actually praying that it is not. It seems to me that one of the biggest strategies of the pro-abortion movement is to de-stigmatize abortion: to make it a simple, no-big-deal action like clipping your nails.

All of the comments seem to be from people thanking her for her courage and showing their support, which gives me pause. It also seems that any opposing thoughts are being deleted.

With that being said, if this is real, it is heartbreaking at the least. This young woman is literally writing a letter to her child to explain to her child why she is paying someone to end her child’s life. She does not try to pretend that this child is not alive, for she clearly recognized the humanity and soul of her child.

Before I go any further I will share her post with you.

I am getting an abortion next Friday. An open letter to the little life I won’t get to meet.

Little Thing:

I can feel you in there. I’ve got twice the appetite and half the energy. It breaks my heart that I don’t feel the enchantment that I’m supposed to feel. I am both sorry and not sorry.

I am sorry that this is goodbye. I’m sad that I’ll never get to meet you. You could have your father’s eyes and my nose and we could make our own traditions, be a family. But, Little Thing, we will meet again. I promise that the next time I see that little blue plus, the next time you are in the same reality as me, I will be ready for you.

Little Thing, I want you to be happy. More than I want good things for myself, I want the best things for the future. That’s why I can’t be your mother right now. I am still growing myself. It wouldn’t be fair to bring a new life into a world where I am still haunted by ghosts of the life I’ve lived. I want you to have all the things I didn’t have when I was a child. I want you to be better than I ever was and more magnificent than I ever could be. I can’t do to you what was done to me: Plant a seed made of love and spontaneity into a garden, and hope that it will grow on only dreams. Love and spontaneity are beautiful, but they have little merit. And while I have plenty of dreams to go around, dreams are not an effective enough tool for you to build a better tomorrow. I can’t bring you here. Not like this.

I love you, Little Thing, and I wish the circumstances were different. I promise I will see you again, and next time, you can call me Mom.

Here is my open letter to her.

Dear H

“Little Thing.” This is the name she chooses to call her pre-born child. This “Little Thing” is not a thing; he or she is a human person. She talks about not bringing her child here, but she needs to understand that she has already done that. Her child is already here.

She talks about how her child might have her father’s eyes or her nose; this has already been determined. If she would not kill this child she would find out whose eyes her child already has.

When she talks about not feeling the enchantment that she is supposed to feel, she needs to understand that this is something that will happen throughout the whole life of her child. I have seven children and in no way do I always feel that enchantment.

What I do feel is love, a love that drives me to protect my children at all costs. No matter what our living situation may be, no matter how much we may not have, no matter how tough times get, I will love them. I am their father and I know that to say I Iove my child means that I would do anything including sacrificing all of my desires and wants to make sure my child is taken care of.

For her to say that she loves this child in the same breath as saying that she is going to abort her child is just not reality. This is a lie and deception that the real war on women has unleashed on this world. The lie that sacrificing the life of a child is an act of love that empowers women is the war on women.

H, if you can read this, I beg you to take a pause for a moment. You said that you feel your child inside of you. I want you to think about that statement. Your child is already here, and you are already this child’s mother. You can give this child the most precious gift in the world: the gift of life.

No matter what circumstances you are in right now, nothing warrants the death of your precious child. You, as this child’s mother, and your love can overcome all the adversity you may face as you raise this precious child.

I have no idea what you believe about God, but I must share with you that you are a child of God, loved by Him and created in His image. Your child is also created in God’s image and is infinitely loved by God. Please understand that God actually gave his own Son, Jesus Christ for you and your child. Through Him you can find the strength to love your child and give your child the gift of life.

Please also understand that I have heard this line of thought from countless women who have gone through with abortion only to find themselves in deep pain down the road. The regret and hurt that often follows abortion is monumental and devastating for mothers and fathers. Please take a moment to read some of the testimonies from women who have been down this road and are speaking out about their experience. – http://www.silentnomoreawareness.org

Please also know that there are so many of us that would help you with anything you need to make sure your child has a wonderful life. We can also help you find an amazing family to adopt your child if that would be an option for you.

H, I am not just pleading for the life of your child, I am pleading for you. I know you are in a situation right now that seems overwhelming, and the world has told young women that the best solution for these situations is abortion. I know that you think this will be the best choice for you, that this will free you to live your life the way you want to.

Please understand that abortion is a lie. It is an attack not only on your child but also on you. It is an act of violence against women, a destroyer that takes what is beautiful and natural and turns it into death.

H, I love you enough to tell you the truth; that abortion will not only kill your child, it will rob you of motherhood. It will not make you cease to be a mom. That is something you are now and will be forever. Your motherhood, however, will be taken from you and thrown into the trash.

Please, H, love yourself enough to embrace the gift God has given you. You are loved and we can help you.

    This is selfish. If you don’t want the baby, give it up for adoption. You don’t get a “do-over.”

    I really don’t know your circumstances but I really hope you decide not to abort this precious life you are carrying inside you but if you want what is best for this baby consider adoption. I know what it is like to not be able to have children so please help someone who possibly can’t bear a child and let them adopt your precious little baby. That would be the best thing you could do for yourself and someone else.

    Dear Madame H,
    I have gathered some verses in the Bible to share with you to help you think a good decision.

    “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
    for the rights of all who are destitute.”
    Proverbs 31:8
    “If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him;
    and he shall pay as the judges determine.
    And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
    eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
    burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.”
    Exodus 21:22-25
    “Did not he who made me in the womb make them?
    Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?”
    Job 31:15
    Yet you brought me out of the womb;
    you made me trust in you even at my mother’s breast.
    From birth I was cast upon you;
    from my mother’s womb you have been my God”
    Psalm 22:9-10
    “And now the LORD says—he who formed me in the womb
    to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and
    gather Israel to himself,
    for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD
    and my God has been my strength”
    Isaiah 49:5
    “For you created my inmost being;
    You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
    I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
    My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place.
    When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
    Your eyes saw my unformed body.
    All the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be”
    Psalm 139:13-16
    “Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless;
    maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
    Rescue the weak and needy;
    deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
    Psalm 82:3-4
    “Rescue those being led away to death;
    hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
    If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”
    Does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
    Does not he who guards your life know it?
    Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?”
    Proverbs 24:11-12
    “Thou shalt not kill.”
    Exodus 20:13
    “Can a woman forget her sucking child,
    that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?
    yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
    Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands;
    thy walls are continually before me.”
    Isaiah 49:15-16

    Let us love each life.It is a gift above all gift.Let him see the beauty of the world embraces with love.

    Your Brother in Faith,
    Demie Baluarte

    The next time the child sees her he or she can call her MOM? When does she expect to see the child again? The next time she is pregnant, does she think that the SAME child will be put inside her womb?

    I’m shocked to read that she can abort her baby that she loves. That isn’t love that is selfishness. I hope that she changed her mind and didn’t kill her child. God please look after the mothers and fathers and their children, show them your love so they know how to love and be loved. Amen

    sadly my society encouraged my abortion they said it would be better for me not to be weighed down at such a young age now in my 60 s i am so alone i have no one no grandchildren no nothing the holidays are bleak they neglected to tell me about this sad lonely desolate future the worst thing is my society encouraged me to kill the one thing that would make me happy they said it would be inconvenient

    this is what this young womans hypocritical society has taught her to believe..weaving lies & excuses into the justification of her decision to kill her unborn child making the child both real & just a thing but it catches up to a person..we are not young forever we cant always have children

    Dear Selfish Thing:
    As I lay here, feeling safe and probably the most secure I will ever feel in my short life, I hear your breathing. I hear your heart beating. And I had thought that it beat with love for me. I feel it is important that you know, I am not a thing.

    I’m also sad. I’ll never get to meet my father, who probably doesn’t even know I exist at the moment. I’ll never get to meet my grandparents, my brothers, sisters or other relatives.

    I’ll never know the joy of someone cuddling me and telling me that they love me. Of
    going to the park with my grandpa, and having him push me on the swings. Of my grandma winking at me and slipping me another cookie while your back is turned.

    The thrill of my first breath, first step, my first word, my first love, my first kiss. I won’t ever get the opportunity to have my own child. I would like to experience all of those things, but you, in your narcissistic, selfish, entitled world, have decided that I don’t deserve the things that your mother allowed you to enjoy.

    Who gave you the right to choose whether I live or die? What is a life worth? By the time you would even feel me moving in my little home, you would only have another 3 to 4 months left before I would be able to breathe on my own. 3 to 4 months of inconvenience in order to save my life. And that’s too much to ask on your part?

    There are so many couples who would cherish the wonderful things that I would bring to their lives, but the only justification you offer for robbing me of my life, is that you can’t be a mommy right now.

    The most noble or selfless act that you could possibly do in your self-absorbed world would be to give me the short few months more that would allow me to experience the rest of my
    life.

    H. I don’t have much more to add beside what Bryan Kemper has told you. The one thing I will add is that by choosing keep your baby now, you will have more and more choices around the life of your baby and for you as well. These choices will protect you and your child. Choosing abortion ends all further decision making about how you, a mother and your baby will live and love as mother and child.
    Love,
    Jennifer

    I was saved from an abortion. I have a daughter. She is
    five. My mom chose life for me.The little voice inside you
    is saying “Don’t silence my Voice I want to live
    Don’t silence my Heart I want my heart to beaut
    Don’t take my LIFE away.I have Dreams that I want
    to accomplished

    Father Frank is right. The baby is already here. When she kills it, if this is an actual situation, then the life of that child will never occur again in all time and eternity. Having a brother or sister to that dead child is just that. We all go through 10 stages in life: From (1) a single cell Zygote, to (2) a Blastocyst, to (3) an Embryo, to (4) a Fetus, to (5) a Newborn Infant, to (6) a Toddler, to (7) a Child, to (8) a Teenager, to (9) an Adult, to (10) a Senior, and there is no moral difference between killing someone at one stage than another. Ending a human life, is ending a human life. It is just that simple.

    Pls I begged u not to abort the baby coz I understand how the baby feels. My mother tried doing that on me bbut was unsuccessful. As I grew I began to hate my

    Things that you cannot later. As a stranger I can feel
    For your baby pls….I begged u

    This letter is so rediculous beyond words. You don’t care enough to carry your baby to full term, but you care to write a letter that he/she will NEVER read or hear. This is the most selfish “act of love” anyone could ever do. A SELFLESS act of love would have been to give birth and put he or she up for adoption. THAT is REAL love. The only one that’s loved is youreself and the attention you’re receiving for it. There are hundreds of families going in debt just to conceive a child, and here you’re murdering the one you have in your womb. You couldn’t find a family to give them the one thing they long for? You could have gone to a church or prolife clinic that would have been more than happy to help you during the nine months you were pregnant.

    “I can’t be your mother right now, I want you to have all the things I didn’t have, to be better than I was..”
    Um, forgive me if I am mistaken, but you aren’t putting this off… not delaying, you are talking about ending all future for this child. If you want these things for your baby, then what you say you want will never be possible. This is his or her only chance, there is only one go here. And I don’t see you meeting again unless you come around.

    WOMEN DESERVE BETTER than abortion. abortion KILLS an unborn HUMAN BEING and emotionally MAULS his/her mother. BREAK THE CHAINS of abortion! ABOLISH abortion—NOW!!!

    The pro-aborts lie, cheat&steal their way to killing unborn human beings. It is their sacred cow. NO ONE in their right mind can bring themselves to even conceive talking to their unborn child that they are about to kill, much less write him/her a letter. This is pro-abort tactics. And the pro-aborts prey on the powder puff sentiment that comes along with saving unborn human beings from being killed while still in their mom’s belly.
