But only if we accept that it is what it is. I refuse to accept that electing to have your unborn child killed in America is deemed to be acceptable behavior. The fact that it’s legal doesn’t make it right. As I’ve written before, everything that happened in Nazi Germany’s World War 2 concentration camps was legal at the time; but that didn’t make it right. If an unborn child is determined to have Down Syndrome in America there’s a 90% chance that it will be aborted. It is what it is if we accept it and choose to do nothing.
When I hear someone say “it is what it is” I often hear resignation. When I hear a pro-abortion politician say they want abortion to be safe, rare, and legal, I hear BS. It’s easy to justify killing innocent children if you call it anything other than what it is. If you truly believe that a woman should have the right to have her unborn child killed, you should have the courage to call it what it is without hiding behind words like abortion, pregnancy termination, and reproductive health care. If you don’t have a problem with over 1 million unborn children being killed in America every year, speak up and tell me why those of us who were allowed to be born should be deciding who shouldn’t be afforded the same accommodation.
Life is what it is. It’s not created by a man and a woman; but a gift that is granted by the Creator of the universe. When we refuse to accept His gifts we are saying that He has made a mistake. When we intentionally end the life of one of His new creations we bear the consequences of our actions. We all received our animating spark of life for a reason, just like we all were given the free will to chart our life’s course. I feel confident in my assumption that none of us were created to kill children.
Abortion is what it is; the killing of innocent, defenseless children for money. You can call it whatever you want, but in the end, it is what it is; millions of dead children for no good reason. None of us can imagine the consequences of allowing nearly 60 million children to be killed in America since 1973. We’re all accountable for how we treat the weakest among us, and those of us who choose to do nothing to stop the slaughter are just as culpable as the ones doing the killing.
Reality can be hard to take at times, but once again, it is what it is. I will work until my dying breath to change the status quo where killing a child that’s not quite perfect or killing one that showed up at a bad time is done thousands of times every day in the country I love. When I say it is what it is I’m not saying it in resignation. I’m saying it in acknowledgment of an evil practice that must be ended and with determination that I will do everything in my power to see that it is.
