The Sanctity of Life

The Sanctity of Life; Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord…

Psalm 127:3

Sanctity of Life


A young woman enters the doors of the clinic. Nervously, she checks in and receives her instructions from the front desk. She sits down knowing a mistake was made, and she’s not ready to be a mother as a high school teenager. This was the only recourse she knew of, and her teachers pushed her to make sure it was “taken care of” sooner than later. Her parents don’t even know.

Reluctantly, she made the appointment.

After hearing her alias name called, she was escorted to the back part of the building. Not wanting to be recognized, she stared at the floor without so much as a left or right glance. Fear and doubt gripped her as she turned the corner into her room and saw the seat and a table close by. Her first reaction was to turn and leave. Motherhood couldn’t be that bad, could it? The white gowned lady reassured her that this feeling was normal, and that she had to continue. The white gown even blocked the exit to make sure she stayed.

The people working here treat her more like livestock than a person. She feels like this is more of an assembly line than a medical facility. She wishes she was not here.

But she was told it must be done. She was told this is the only way out of her predicament.

It doesn’t go as planned; the baby is born barely alive.

The white gowned lady tosses the born alive infant on the table and watches, unmoved, as she hears gasps for air. This precious life is left to suffer and die. The white gowned man keeps working, too, ignoring the dying child.

Keenly aware her child was born alive, the mother is moved to recovery. She cries; she wants her child. The white gowns keep her distracted. Then, they send her on her way. She will never recover.

It may be legal to allow this baby to die, but it does not make it moral.

A white gown does not a doctor nor nurse make.

First, do no harm?

A child was allowed to die in agony today.

The world is reduced by one tiny and innocent life.

A young girl is scarred forever.

How can any society say this is ok?[1]

She walks out of the facility into the loving arms of an elderly woman praying on the sidewalk. She now knows what real love feels like. She cries, and the woman hugs her close. The next week they are both standing on the sidewalk praying. A nation is changed one heart at a time.

The ballot referendum states that infants born alive at any stage of development are legal persons; that medical care is required to be provided to infants born alive after an induced labor, cesarean section, attempted abortion, or another method; and that a $50,000 fine and/or 20 years in prison is the maximum penalty for violating the law.

  1. A pagan based society is the only type that can allow this madness to continue. Thank God for every heart that changes.
    That elderly woman, or man, is praying for her salvation. That is one way to fight back against evil and wickedness.

    For whatever reason, medicine has taken a dark tone, and does not seem to live up to “First, do no harm,” anymore. We are all sinners.
    You made such a sad topic, beautiful.
