It is repugnant, however, to know that a baby, created in the image and likeness of God and while still in the womb, does not enjoy the same privilege to life as mere animals. What does that say about our modern society where animals - and even criminals - have more rights than a preborn child? Has society sunk so low that we value brute animals and criminals over that of an unborn child?
Regardless, and although many preborn children have been denied this right to life, my newest niece & nephew - Molly & Christian - were not.

These two beautiful children's parents chose life and to them and to all Parents and Mothers who choose life, I say:
Thank you and may God Bless you!
To those children denied their lives, denied the right to love, to smile and to repose in the arms of a loving Mother, I offer to and for them:
A Child's Unconditional Love
Silent voices, heard by none; Yet, that cry!
They are frightened, unloved and alone.
Until their Angel Guardians carry them Home.
Into the hands of their Father,
with tenderness, are they placed;
The pains of death now overtaken by Grace.
Tenderness and Joy, with their eyes they do see,
In the face of their Savior: Love,
Love! that should have been Thee!
Now only He can behold them full grown,
And return them His gift:
Their lives, that were stole;
By the one who was made, to bring them to life.
But, willingly, did forfeit that God-given right.
'Can you forgive?' each child shall be asked,
'This creature, this woman, this One I did task?'
'Oh, Yes, Dearest Savior! There can be no other,
That ever will we Love, for:
She Is Our Mother!'
