I believe..

A couple of weeks ago, my Literature teacher assigned us a creative writing essay. "What do you Believe?" He said that we could write about anything and it could be as short or as long as we liked. I thought that I would share mine with you all. :D

Fighting For What Is Important
by Traci

Every day, many medical questions are answered, but even more remain unanswered. I believe in fighting for life because I don’t need a “yes” or “no” or a personal opinion from any expert or doctor to tell me that from the moment of conception babies are alive and thriving.

Unborn babies are the purest and the most beautiful. They are aware of their surroundings and know more than we think they do. God created them for goodness sake; they are going to be unpredictable and amazing. The possibility that we will know how aware a baby is in the womb, is doubtful, but their reflexes are working from the very beginning. When a baby is being sucked down a tube on request from the parent, they shrink away from the instrument of pain. If only the mother could see how much they both need each other.

The day after I was born, I was adopted into a wonderful family. I have no regrets, but I used to wonder why my birth mother didn’t try harder. If she had we could still be together. I couldn’t have been more wrong. She had fought for me. She chose to give birth and that decision was extremely tough. Friends pressured her to have an abortion. They wanted her to walk up the stairs of the clinic, kill me, and walk back down, never looking back. She stood strong though and didn’t break. Fighting for my life was worth going against her friends, and because of that I’m still here. Because of the mothers who are fighting, some children are able to survive and have an opportunity at life. But shouldn’t we all be fighting for the helpless unborn and their right to exist?

Fighting for what you believe in, or more specifically, fighting for life is noble and courageous. What could be more important than life? By fighting now, our children will be able to experience the joys and hardships of life and hopefully their children will continue that battle through their generations.

Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!!!

Wonderful essay, Traci. Keep on fighting and praying for unborn babies and those who carry them.
