A mother sits weeping on the edge of her bed.  In her mind she is continually seeing that ultrasound screen.  She is sobbing as she remembers the heartbeat that was there no longer.  She grieves the loss of her child-though never to breath air on earth-it was still her baby.  She wishes she could have cradled the little one in her arms and raised her son or daughter to adulthood.  This baby meant just as much to her as her other children and was already a treasured member of the family.  Her heart is crying.

Sitting in a red chair, in a little brick building, is another mother.  She squeezes the few hundred bucks in her hand and can't wait to just get this over with.  In her womb is a living child, totally unaware of the upcoming destruction.  The mother thinks to herself about how great life will be after the abortion.  She envisions her college grades and smiles.  In the room next to her the vacuum machine that will be used to tear her baby to shreds is being prepared.  Her heart is hardened.

It is so sad to think, that there are women who have miscarried, and lost the baby they had waited for so expectantly.  That there are some women who are barren, and want children ever so badly. But yet there are millions of women who kill the very children God blessed them with.  Every child is wanted!  Wanted by the people that have lost their own, wanted by the people who cannot conceive, wanted by GOD.

Job 10:12 "You clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews.  You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit."
