Of Abortion and Miscarriage

A close, but currently secular, friend of mine sent me a link and a quote from it today. Here's the questions he asked after reading it.

"A miscarriage is a loss of life, it' s a death. For a
woman, she just doesn't feel it in her heart but her body too since she was
carrying the baby."
So, why when a baby dies in the womb from unknown
causes or perhaps a health problem is it called a death, a loss of life. BUT,
when its an abortion it isn't. Have you ever known a woman who had a
miscarriage and said "Oh, well, it wasn't really a baby anyway"? I

Read the article for yourself at the Calgary Sun. Here's a snipet.

O’Donoghue, who was 18 weeks pregnant, suffered a miscarriage in April.
Since she wasn’t bleeding and considered a low priority the Calgary Health
Region sent her home and told her to come back in a week to 10 days.

“It was horrible, disrespectful, very cruel and psychologically damaging. A
baby is dead. I found it very upsetting I was considered a low priority because
I wasn’t bleeding,” O’Donoghue says.

If you're someone who still thinks abortion is reasonable and OK, that it is morally fine please visit Show The Truth.

What's your baby worth?
