So there is a picture with an attached story circulating facebook... The story, which I have seen before, is about an abortion from the baby's point of view. I couldn't even finish reading the story! It infuriated me! The picture that is attached is of an aborted baby....around 21 weeks. That is when MY babies were born! OMG!! I saw it and just wept! It's awful!! And the person that shared the post it is supposedly a good friend of mine! I couldn't help but comment on it....this is what I said:

SERIOUSLY?! Who is God's name comes up with this disturbing BS??? There is ABSOLUTELY NO SINCE in this!! Who ever made this is a sick, demented person. I cannot believe you shared this!!!! I am against abortion....but this.....completely ridiculous!!

I am enraged!! There is so much I want to say....I don't know whether to cry or scream.... My babies are sooo precious!! I don't want to see pictures like that and be reminded of them. That baby was murdered....mine were born alive. ARGGG.... sorry....I really, seriously need to vent!!!

They are for shock value unfortunately. It is very very disturbing that a picture was taken.

I'm sure you are right....it just really bothers me. And I am apparently not the only one who is upset about it....several people have commented on it, which makes me feel good..

It would bother me too, and for the opposite reason. I did terminate a pregnancy at 21 weeks because of severe birth defects. It was the hardest decision I have ever made, and i can't imagine how disturbing it would be if i ever had to see a picture like that. I also think posting it is disgusting - most people who do terminate a pregnancy that late aren't doing it because they don't want a baby, or changed their minds about having one. So posting a picture meant to make them feel guilty (when I'm sure they are already struggling with it) is just plain cruel.

I agree!! There is a difference when it is the only medical sound decision. The guilt and shame that a parent would feel who had no other choice when that is thrown in their face is completely unnecessary!! I am soooo sorry for your loss!! <3
