You’ve probably seen it, but if you haven’t here it is: the following story has gone viral on social networking sites, spreading a simple, but powerful pro-life message wherever it goes. It is presumably a fictitious story, but packs a powerful punch in a short space. Its lesson is simple: that there is no major difference between a baby outside the womb and a baby inside the womb, but whereas most women would recoil from killing their newborn, they have been conditioned to believe that killing the child inside the sanctuary of the womb is perfectly ok. Sometimes it takes little more than a gentle push for them to realize that this belief is a belief based upon convenience and not truth, and must be reexamined.Do you think that this story is convincing for people who may be pro-choice, or sitting on the fence?Also, do you know anything about the origin of this story? Who wrote it? If so, leave a comment in the comment box.
A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:“Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even one year old, and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.”So the doctor said: “Okay, and what do you want me to do?”She said: “I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.”The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence, he said to the lady: “I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you, too.”She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.Then he continued: “You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.”The lady was horrified and said: “No, doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!”“I agree,” the doctor replied. “But you seemed to be okay with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.”The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.He convinced the mom that there is no difference between killing a child that’s already been born and killing one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!
