This is a song I wrote as a sad reflection on the possibility that due to abortion some of us may have lost good friends, family members, and future spouses. It's easy to forget that everywhere we go there may have been familiar faces, neighbors, people driving down the road, people next to us on the bus, etc etc who were never even given the chance of life.

So, instead, we go about our routines in a world of lost potential... :(

Elegy for the Forgotten (All Rights Reserved by the writer - me)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Caught up in the rush of a busy life,
Sometimes I forget.
Lost amidst the noise and the shining lights,
A little life may end.
Goodbye, my someday friend.
Goodbye, but not "The End".
Goodbye.

God's arms will be the cradle they never knew;
His voice - the love we lost.
But somewhere in His heart is forgiveness, too,
Despite all we forgot.
The line we dared to cross.
Today we count the cost.
Today...

They say that life is just a choice we make.
Prove to me these little lives were all mistakes!

See the little face and the little eyes?
Helpless hands and feet?
Innocence is lost and we call it wise,
A choice that meets our needs.
A tear we cannot mend...
Farewell, but not "The End",
My friend.

That's so sad, but so well written.

I just rediscovered it in my files and thought it was worth sharing here.

Yeah, even though I wrote it it makes me cry sometimes... :\

I can see why! It's a very awful thought to think about all the babies who have been aborted and who they could have been.

Thanks for sharing it here :)

Sure! I hope in some indirect way it can also be comforting to know God has a purpose in it all, as well.

Sad, but true, makes you remember all those who might have had a successful life if they had been allowed to be born

I wasn't sure what you meant about Earth Day, but I looked up the link between abortion and Earth Day and found this conversation on a website about abortion...

Question: What does abortion have to do with Earth Day?



Answerer #1:
humans are part of the planet and technically are animals. also, aborted fetuses are incinerated which may add to pollution, then the ashes are either thrown or used as fertilizer.



Answer #2:
Both make the Earth a better place!!!



Answer #3:
You use fetuses to fertilize the soil.



People are not just animals, and we are talking about babies. Would these people say "You use babies to fertilize the soil"? :mad:

If these people were serious (and even if they were joking), this world is full of very sick twisted people. We are quickly slipping back to the stone age, folks. Have you noticed the rise in things formerly unthinkable in our societies like cannibalism and polygamy and incest?

I read a bit ago about some American reality show host who joined a tribe in drinking from a human skull and eating human flesh... And there is a very active movement to legalize polygamy and incest which I'm sure will be the next major push after the transgender subculture believes they have gained their "victory".

Satan wants to normalize these things in people's minds. We cannot let that happen. We need to pray desperately for God's mercy and for the Holy Spirit to flood the US again (not to exclude the rest of the world of course, but it is the country I know best! :D)

TO not feel bad about an aborted baby job would say i wish i was an abortive baby because his conditions were worse than that of an aborted baby. Not saying i would abort or am pro abortion i am pro life i’d rather have my baby with leprosy than for it to die.

I believe a baby can sense what happens to abortive babies in other wombs. And that baby cries everytime he/she loses connection. So we must think of our own babies rather than pointing to abortive babies we must comfort our babies.

Oh, I see! So what you mean is, in some ways aborted babies have it better than us simply because they get to be with Jesus first.

You may be right, though in all honesty the theology of eternity in Heaven for babies who die before being able to know about their need for Jesus isn't 100% confident, that I'm aware of. However, knowing the character of God, I think it's fair to assume that He would be merciful to them. I think the same goes for people who have mental issues that keep them from comprehending their sinful nature. But it's a tricky subject...

Yes, either way to choose life over death is always best and God's will. It what Jesus did on the cross (the paradox of salvation) And that applies to ourselves, too. So, no, suicide is not a God-pleasing option, either.

One thing that gnaws at my soul about abortion is, as I have heard others point out, that for these last 45 years we could have spent all these millions and millions of dollars on finding cures for some of the "reasons" to abort our babies! We know a lot more than we did back when abortion was legalized and can save many more babies' lives than before, but how many more than these could we even have saved!

Another topic that interests me is the subject of ectopic pregnancies - one of the kinds of pregnancies that threaten the mother's life potentially. I read a report from way back in the early 20th century (I believe) where a doctor decided to try to transfer the baby into the womb during an operation and it was a success. The baby grew in the womb and was born as a healthy child. But these days women are basically told that they'll die if they don't have the embryo removed. And, according to Wikipedia, it doesn't even matter if the ectopic baby has a heartbeat already.
