Spina Bifida Baby – She Didn’t Ask to Be Born
Sympathy – the feeling that you care about and are sorry about someone else’s trouble, grief, misfortune, etc. : a sympathetic feeling
When others experience hardships in life, an appropriate Christian response is to feel sympathy. Many causes rely on this emotional connection in their quest for assistance and donations. While it is virtuous to offer all we can to those who are less fortunate, today’s culture has misdirected these natural inclinations. An example of one such instance came across my Facebook news feed today:
“”Flower didn’t ask for this life, it was thrust upon her by a greedy breeder who wanted to play God and make miniature bulldogs, what she created was an entire litter of bullies with spina bifida and lifelong challenges. It’s NOT fair!!! Like all bullies she deserves to live and be happy and this surgery will give her that ” — THE PAY PAL IS …”
Upside Down Values
Each and every evening television viewers are inundated with sappy commercials, some set to hymns, featuring needy animals. Somehow, the values of society have been turned upside down. While animals enjoy a richer life than ever before, children and the family are suffering.The experimentation on and death of our tiny brethren is ignored by many. In our commercialized world we have reprioritized humans and animals. Uplifting animals is in, while preserving human life is out.
An Equal Look at Baby
- Babies don’t ask to be born.
- Greedy doctors kill babies for profit.
- Babies with spina bifida face a lifelong challenge.
- Babies deserve to live and be happy.
The injustice of this inequality can certainly not be lost on an honest heart and mind.
