I believe in things that most people don’t believe in anymore. I believe that a baby has the right to be born. I believe that just because a “mistake” was made by grown people, that it does not warrant an excuse for aborting a living, wonderful child. I believe in speaking up for the unborn. I believe that if they could, they would hold up their little tiny hand and say,…”excuse me…I’m sorry to be a burden, but if you wouldn’t mind..could you please stop sawing my head off. I don’t mean to put you out or anything, but it does kind of hurt.”
