Years before abortion was considered legal in all 50 states, many young ladies were pressured into giving their babies away. Whenever a baby cannot be raised by his own mother and father, it is always tragic and should give us pause to reflect on the consequences of living in a fallen world. Yet, sometimes circumstances beyond our control warrant eliciting the help of others.
In life, there is no such thing as rewinding the tape. The reason many women destroy their babies is because they want to believe they can undo a segment of their lives later in the process. Many times parents who either give their children away or destroy them, feel a sense of loss and sadness for the rest of their lives. My city clerk once told me, “You can take the baby out of the mother’s body, but you can never take the baby out of the mother’s mind.” Those words stuck with me through the years because they are true.
