Please look at the face of this little boy, my youngest, my son. This is the face of choice. My midwife offered me a “choice” and she said she would support my choice but she could never finish the sentence because it is too horrid to say out loud. The choice was DEATH or LIFE for Michael Jr because of disabilities.
We have been hoodwinked by the rhetoric of “choice,” an incomplete slogan. So if we choose to now open our eyes, the choice is for an innocent life to be taken or allowed to develop. No euphemisms. When I look at this face, I see a beautiful life that, thank God, lived and will live out his potential. On the anniversary of Roe V. Wade, I pray that we as a nation examine our collective consciences and life and death issues without the rhetoric. Even Jane Roe in this infamous case was not too proud to say, I was wrong.
