    *Warning: Graphic Picture* :( :crossrc:

    This ugly, deplorable, heartbreaking picture showed up in my Facebook feed. That's a beautiful baby, who looks to be full-term. And there are thousands if not millions of people who cannot have babies, and who would quickly claim this little one for their own. In a world where the fullness of love is constantly being challenged by hate and emptiness...

    Christ have mercy. Things like this absolutely destroy me. I pray all the time that God will put me in the path of someone would do something like this...not to confront them or harm them...but that I might be on hand to save even one little one like this. I wish that I could save all of them. I would take every one. :cry:

    As ghastly as that photo is, it should be placed in front of each and every politician in the country as a reminder of what their handiwork has wrought.

    I thought it was going to be a picture of the nearly-full-term baby in a bucket, discarded and killed by Chinese officials because the parents already had one child and weren't permitted to have a second :(

    A baby in a garbage pile is even worse. Made me feel like throwing up in addition to being horrified.

    :(:(:(

    And the worst thing is Jesus expects us to forgive people who did that.

    My left hand will be their penance and my right hand will be their penance! :mad:

    If I were elected President, at my first State of the Union address I'd stand there silently for five minutes with that picture behind me in high-def on a 50-foot wide screen. Then I'd say "A civilization that thinks that anyone has the right to do this is desperately ill and will not survive for long", and pledge to spend every waking moment working to end it.

    Sadly they would blame each other and dismiss their own guilt.

    Deplorable,disgusting and heartbreaking.

    Lord have mercy on us all for letting these crimes against life and you continue.:crossrc:

    God help us. I will never understand why mankind is so evil. It's like the world is losing its conscience and sense of morality :(

    Agreed~ just heartbreaking.

    Hubby and I are talking about trying to conceive over the summer or sometime afterwards (this is the first I'm talking about it) and seeing that just breaks my heart. I can't imagine giving up a child like that :(

    My Mother would often say, "Oh my dearest Lord" I have seen some really horrible things in my life. I have seen my brother Brian Dead. I cleaned out my brother Jimmy's apartment after he died. I witness my Mother take her last breaths. I saw my friend Jackie utter his last words after he was stabbed mortally.

    I can't believe that we have come to this.We have become so depraved in this society, that we are no longer deserving of a shred of mercy.

    Bad times are coming upon this filthy nation, and we are all going to suffer because of it. I know the faux intellectuals will scoff and mock but the time is very near.
