GUEST,daylia songs about abortion (118* d) RE: songs about abortion 13 Dec 02

McGrath of Harlow, you are simply wonderful :-)

    "It is intolerable for a woman to be denied the support and                help
      she needs in order to bear a child. And if as a result she decides
      to go for an abortion, THAT IS NOT A FREE CHOICE."

There's wisdom, compassion and healing in those words. I'd never thought of it quite that way before. I went to bed last night feeling like some great load had been lifted. Gives me a logical reason "Not to Blame", to quote Joni Mitchell again. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING THEM!!

Thanks Amos for your encouragement to continue speaking my truth. It's a lot easier to say nothing and ignore the issue, but that accomplishes nothing.

Bert and Grab, thanks for your real-life examples and for showing love and understanding from a man's point of view. If all men had your insight and compassion, there'd probably be no cause for the misery of abortion in the first place.

And Guest jim, thanks for posting those beautiful lyrics. I love how they end with that note of HOPE:

"Light a candle in the window
So she can see it from the road
With all the loving in your heart
Welcome her back home"

I'm grateful to you all.
