“Choice”

20120122-095356.jpg

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.

About nalidabesson

I am a wife and mother of three children. My husband is blind from congenital cataracts. He is a talented musician. (Hear selections from his instrumental Gospel album at www.cdbaby.com/michaelbesson ). My children had a 50/50 chance of inheriting it and all three did. Besides being legally blind, my kids have additional disabilities including autism spectrum disorders, seizure condition, learning disorder, and developmental delays. They are wonderful, happy children and I thank the Lord for allowing me to be their mother. All people deserve the right to life. Children (unborn and born) around the world with disabilities are targeted for abortion and euthanasia because of their disabilities. We should protect their lives because all lives are precious in God's eye. And even if someone does not believe in God, scientifically, every person from conception is a person. I am a teacher of students who are blind and visually impaired, some with other disabilities. I also have a background in law and public adminstration, having graduated from law school and management school before pursuing a career in special education. I believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for ALL--unborn and born, with disabilities and without.
