Bearing Fruit

anonymous:

“There is life after childhood” yeah, but childhood is not separate from that, and the abuse I underwent will haunt me the rest of my life. I hope you realize there are worse things than death.

Yes, I do know that there are worse things than death. But who are we to say how a child’s life will turn out? We cannot predict the future.

The truth is that abortions are not committed because the mother is concerned about her child’s future, they are done because the mother cares about her future, and more often, her present. They are committed for selfish reasons.

We cannot know what fruit a human being will bear. All we can know is that they should have the opportunity to chart their own course.
