I recently was sent an email from a friend with a blog attached, the blog author is a friend of hers and is a surrogate right now. The email from my friend said be prepared to cry so I put off reading the blog for a day or so. I finally read it and cry I did. Me being me I decided to ask for prayer for this stranger who I’ve never met, back up I actually asked for prayer for an unborn child. I did this over at MckMama’s message board, remember sweet Stellan. I now regret asking for prayer, that sentence doesn’t even look right does it?
Can I just seriously ask what is wrong with people? I’ve been disappointed by people over and over this weekend. Is the whole world self-centered and hardened?
I am seeing why people VERY close to me question Christianity, I never thought I would understand BUT I do. Don’t get me wrong, I believe and nothing can change that. I went to said blog and message board today and read the following comments…..
“Tell her you will not kill any baby unless she is there with you. SHE can watch them kill a baby. Do you know that a 13 week baby is fully formed-you can see all it’s fingers and toes and it’s gender. No way can you do this-you will just as guilty of murder as her.” OF COURSE the person writing this is anonymous and her screen name is 2 Angles.
“Audra, I am so heartbroken for you, and this situation. I understand you feel obligated to go through with this, but I do not believe you are. Legally, absolutely. Morally, its your call. You do have a choice here. There are consequences, but there will be consequences either way. Which consequences can you live with, when you lay your head on your pillow at night? You ultimately have to be able to live with yourself. In the Bible, in the Book of Exodus, the Egyptian Pharaoh told the Hebrew mid-wives to kill all the male babies of the Hebrews, but the Bible says they refused, because they feared God. Also, Moses lived because his mother feared God and would not allow him to be put to death. If you fear God, and do what is right, then you will do well. If you go against your conscience, regardless of the legalities, it will be a much harder road for you. Praying for you, the IP, and the situation.” Written by Michelle, you can find her blog right here….full of bible verses….I question where is God’s love and mercy?
“I have doubts about the validity of the woman’s blog. I don’t think that the donor parents have the legal right to force medical interventions on the surrogate. Certainly if 2 embryo were inserted, wasn’t the possibility of twins discussed? And if they don’t want twins, they could certainly place one for adoption rather than abort. Another anonymous comment over at MckMama’s.
“I think this is a fake site, just like April Rose.”
I think this is all bullshit and gimmick to get money from you gullible, good hearted people.
She is lying. Sorry.” This sweet comment was left by Mom With A Left Hook, again profile not available.
I have been mad all day over this, I feel responsible for those comments because I’m the one that asked for prayer….now tonight I find it all disgusting. I am going to assume that all of those comments were left by adults and this is what I have to say. Go ahead leave your nasty comments hide behind your computer screen you are a bunch of cowards. For all the “prayer warriors” over at Mck Mama’s you need to practice what the bible says in it’s entireity not what you choose to practice.
Luke 6:37 ESV /
“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;
Matthew 7:15 ESV /
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
Proverbs 31:9 ESV /
Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.
I am going through some things in my personal life and questioning what God wants me to learn, if things don’t turn out like I want them to and have been praying for them to turn out I will still praise God.
The writer of said blog is praying for God to touch the parents of the unborn children and change their hearts, if God doesn’t do that is He to blame for the abortion? Free will people, we all have it.
I recently first hand saw a Godly woman make a mistake that she NEVER thought she would make….she is a Christian and is very open about sharing her faith; she sinned. Don’t we all?
When I went to some of the blogs from the commenters at this woman’s blog I had to wonder, “Who do you think you are?” We all sin, no sin is bigger or worse than another sin. Did I mention disgust?
I’m glad my 10 year old is praying for this situation with an open and loving heart. Adults are so overrated.
