The ones that aren’t killed may later be physically and or emotionally abused.
To many people, They are not sacred.
Many of them are abused before they’re even born.
Many are saddled with an incurable disease.
Many are addicted to drugs -- through no fault of their own.
Who are the most Innocent, Pure, Trusting, and Faithful?
Who is all Good?
Who knows nothing of evil (or at least, they shouldn’t)?
Who changes lives for the better by their mere presence? (Or at least, they should.)
Who can inspire someone to quit drinking, smoking, drugs, junk food, or other risky behaviors?
Who inspires wonder, love, warmth, tenderness, caring, protectiveness, selflessness…?
Butch insisted that Julia kill it.
Butch was embarrassed – and pissed.
Eventually Butch came around.
And, funny how things happen, but “It” looks a lot like Butch. (Thanks, God.)

Didn’t Jesus start out His life on earth… in the womb?
Wasn’t He a baby, too?
Didn’t He start at the beginning – and experience it all?
What if Mary had changed her mind?
What if Mary’s parents didn’t believe and insisted she end "It"?
What if Joseph had insisted on an abortion?
Lucky for all of us, They didn’t!
All babies are special.
All babies deserve a chance… to change the world.
