Being a great mother means that you would do anything for your child, but it does not necessarily mean that you are a perfect person. No, not every mom in the world makes it through her child’s entire life without moments of weakness where she might question whether she is doing a great job at parenting. But that does not mean that a mom who has doubts in her ability is not still a good mom or that she is not a loving mother.

Life doesn’t always go how you wish that it would. But life is not the choice you make to keep on living. Life is simply a fact. What I mean by this, is that life is not a choice we make. Yes, we can “pro-create” and reproduce through our own choices, but we are not the creators, and we are not the source of that life; we are simply entrusted with it.

Women are entrusted with this life-protective role from the moment of conception. As women lived and died throughout time, some of them found ways to end the lives of their children while they were pregnant. But it was not always this way. According to historical accounts of some of the darker times in human history, unwanted babies were taken to the top of the tower of Babel and sacrificed to Moloch. These unwanted children were often the result of sexual rituals of those involved in worship of Nimrod and Semiramis, who figuratively became the Sun god and Moon goddess perpetuated throughout history in various forms and by various names. (Watch this video series.)

What is the difference between child sacrifice inside the womb and child sacrifice once a child is born? One is now legal and one is not. That’s it. Just because something is legal does not mean it is right. Our world has come so far down a slippery slope of immorality and distance away from God’s design for humanity that the word family is now almost meaningless. The life of an innocent child has become valueless. And the role of a mother has been devalued so much that people have come to consider blogging to be more important than attending to their own child. You’re about to see what I mean…

I saw a disturbing article the other day, called “Why I Sometimes Wish I’d Had an Abortion.” The other mothers I saw on Facebook commenting about this piece of internet trash (one for the record books) were all legitimately filled with rage. In this blog, the mother speaks about how she has tried to be a great mom and yet, “Parenting in this f—–d up world” makes her wish that she had had an abortion. She says she needed “several lifetimes” to prepare to give this child a better life, by bettering this world first.

“In a previous blog post, I wrote about how having a baby changed my mind about abortion. The hardship of four years of unplanned parenthood made me change my former staunch pro-life position.

But in this post, I want to be even more explicit. It’s not just that I now support women’s right to choose as some sort of abstract ideology. I actually often regret having a child myself. Especially lately.

I recently posted on Facebook about four abused, neglected siblings who are up for adoption as a package deal. Who knows, maybe their parents were great and CPS just kidnapped them for no reason. But that’s beside the point. The point is there are basically zero happy, healthy, financially-prepared, functioning families out there willing to adopt four kids.

I posted the story along with the caption – “This is why I support abortion.” Several indignant people responded that abortion is never the answer – that no life, no matter how miserable it’s destined to become, should be prevented from being brought into existence.

It’s a ridiculous argument really. If taken to its logical conclusion, every opportunity for an egg to be fertilized should be taken – it’s a potential life – we can’t let it go unlived! Being alive is always better than not having been alive, the fundamentalists insist. “Ask any adult who was abused or neglected in childhood if he would’ve rather never been born,” one lady said.”

See here how she speaks of an egg being potentially fertilized at some point, and equates it with a child already growing in the womb? This is a trick she must be playing on herself to equate her once not-yet-born child with the unfertilized eggs in her ovaries in order to make the pro-life argument appear ridiculous.

She goes on:

“I guess my point is, parenting is not my talent. My talent is researching stuff, trying to figure out what is wrong with the world and how to fix it… and then writing about it. That’s what I want to spend my time doing, not playing Barbies and begging my kid to eat real food.

I don’t want to sound too negative about all of this, because, at the end of the day, I would never, ever give her up. It’s just I wish I’d had more time – perhaps several lifetimes – to prepare a better world for her to enter into, because that’s what she deserves.”

Sad to see this type of twisted thinking going viral. Reality says that you don’t really get several lifetimes to prepare to have a child. That isn’t what life is about.

Nor can thinking like this, throughout one lifetime, or several, make a better world – not for her daughter, not for anyone.

The implication here with this woman’s blog cannot be dismissed. She is saying that she would not give up her child now, but she sometimes wishes she had before. Her goal seems to be to cast doubt in the minds of others about their pregnancies, if not to justify an abortion she’s had or may plan on having if she ever becomes pregnant again. How evil is it to not only justify your own abortion, but to wish your child had never been born? How evil is it to make mothers feel that they will regret having their children? How evil is it to pretend you’re a former pro-life convert to pro-choice just because parenting is hard.

Babies are not unfertilized eggs or potential life. Fertilized eggs are the earliest form of a human life, but it is not potential life. By the time you find out you are pregnant, your child already has a heartbeat.

Pray for this woman, that her heart and her mind will be changed.

Infant Feeding Advice

Take A Brochure

This printable tri-fold brochure educates parents and professionals about issues raised in Babywise & Preparation for Parenting. Permission is granted to copy and distribute.

Babywise and Preparation for Parenting (also known as Let the Children Come: Along the Infant Way) have been criticized by hundreds of professionals in pediatric medicine, human lactation, psychology, anthropology, child development, and theology. Problems have been associated with these programs — cases of slow weight gain, failure to thrive, depressed babies, even hospitalization. Its feeding recommendations were the subject of a warning sent out by the AAP.

The following are some of the concerns experts share :

  • Lack of expertise and credentials. The primary authors of the material, Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo, are self-proclaimed experts. Gary Ezzo has no background or expertise in child development, psychology, breastfeeding, or pediatric medicine, and holds neither an associate’s nor a bachelor’s degree from any college. His master of arts degree in Christian ministry was granted through a program that awarded credit for life experience in lieu of an undergraduate degree.

    Anne Marie Ezzo worked only briefly as an R.N. decades ago. The Ezzos raised two daughters who are presently estranged from them.

    It is unclear what, if anything, Babywise co-author Dr. Robert Bucknam contributed to that book, since versions of the book for the Christian market are essentially the same (though with added religious material) and do not have his name on the cover.

  • Risks for breastfeeding mothers and babies. Breastfeeding on a parent-determined schedule (including a “flexible routine” as it is called in Babywise) may reduce a mother’s milk supply and contradicts the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which has stated, “The best feeding schedules are the ones babies design themselves. Scheduled feedings designed by parents may put babies at risk for poor weight gain and dehydration.”
  • Poor breastfeeding information. Although it is presented as authoritative, the breastfeeding information presented in Babywise is inaccurate and substandard (compare with the AAP Breastfeeding recommendations from the 2005 AAP Policy Statement on Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk).
  • One Size Doesn’t Fit All. All babies and mothers are treated alike without any respect given for individual differences in breastmilk storage capacity, rate of milk synthesis, rate of infant metabolism or stomach capacity.   In actuality, the number of feedings one mother’s body requires in order to supply her baby with plenty of milk each day will be quite different from other mothers around her. Similarly, breastfed babies need varying amounts milk in varying numbers and sizes of feedings, and they do not feed exactly the same way from one feeding to the next in any case. Ezzo seemingly expects all babies to respond in an identical manner.  This is no more realistic than expecting adults to consume the same amounts of food on the same schedule and grow (or lose weight!) at the same rate.
  • A high-pressure presentation impacts parents’ perception of what is at stake:
    • Pressure to maintain the regimen. The rules for sleep, feedings and wake time are portrayed as critical to follow in order to achieve a healthy outcome, while health and behavior problems for the baby, and sleepless nights for the parents, are predicted if the program is not followed. (Flexibility is praised but is described as small, short-term adjustments to the prescribed regimen. Parents are warned against making open-ended adaptations.)
    • Misplaced moral dilemmas. How well the parents and the baby adhere to the program is framed as a moral or biblical issue (e.g. permissiveness on the part of parents, uncooperativeness on the part of the baby).
    • Parents are reluctant to give up on the method. Health care professionals have observed that even when their babies were doing poorly on the program, parents often wanted to stick with it.

This is an interesting news piece on what people do – and don’t do – when they see children being mistreated on leashes.

I am curious how many of our readers have ever had to use a leash and what ages / circumstances they were used for.

Setting the people up to die: A conspiracy of silence about swine flu natural remedies

Wednesday, August 26, 2009 by: Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) It’s emblazoned across the front page of USA Today, just underneath a subhead declaring Michael Jackson was, indeed, killed by a drug overdose: “Flu could infect half of USA.” The article goes on to describe the predicted number of deaths expected in the U.S. (30,000 – 90,000 Americans) as well as the actions being taken by the government to protect Americans from the coming swine flu pandemic.

That advice reads sort of like a comic book of health care advice for kindergarteners: Wash your hands, cover your mouth if you cough and let “the grownups” take care of the rest by injecting you with a vaccine. Curiously absent from all the health advice being handed out on the swine flu by the White House, the CDC, the WHO and even the FDA is any mention of Vitamin D or other natural remedies that offer enormous protections from influenza infections.

Fox News Poll: Majority Think Swine Flu Vaccine Deadlier Than Virus

Global revolt against dangerous untested jab builds momentum

Fox News Poll: Majority Think Swine Flu Vaccine Deadlier Than Virus 280809top2

Friday, August 28, 2009

According to a Fox News poll, the majority of respondents think that the swine flu vaccine is deadlier than the actual virus itself, emphasizing the growing momentum in the revolt against government plans to institute mass H1N1 vaccination programs.

Despite attempts on behalf of governments and their lapdog corporate media allies to push the necessity of the H1N1 vaccination, large numbers of the general public along with health workers have made it known that they will refuse to take the shot.

The latest effort on behalf of the establishment to push the vaccine occurred earlier this week when Dr. Nancy Snyderman, billed as chief medical editor at NBC News, stated during an MSNBC panel discussion that people should reject “conspiracy theories” about the vaccine’s safety, trust the government and “get your damn vaccine”.

The desperation and anger in Snyderman’s snarly voice was clearly a result of frustration arising out of the fact that vast numbers of people are getting educated about what will actually be in the vaccine.

The swine flu vaccine is being rushed through safety procedures while governments have provided pharmaceutical companies with blanket immunity from lawsuits arriving out of the vaccine causing deaths and injuries.

It was previously revealed that some batches of the vaccine will contain mercury, a toxin linked with autism and neurological disorders. The vaccine will also contain the dangerous ingredient squalene, which has been directly linked with cases of Gulf War Syndrome and a host of other debilitating diseases.

It was also recently reported that the UK government sent a confidential letter to senior neurologists telling them to be on the alert for cases of a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.

The Fox News poll on the issue is not scientific but is impossible to “game” for one side or the other because votes are restricted to one per IP address.

The results show that 50% think the vaccine is a greater risk than the virus, 32% think not taking the vaccine is the greater risk, while 19% are undecided.

The poll arrives on the back of a study published in the world’s foremost peer-reviewed medical journal which found that half of Hong Kong’s medical workers would refuse to take the swine flu vaccine because of fears about its safety.

Fox News Poll: Majority Think Swine Flu Vaccine Deadlier Than Virus 280809top

Research conducted by the University of Hong Kong and made public by the British Medical Journal consistently found that less than half of 8,500 doctors and nurses in public hospitals would accept vaccination against H1N1 influenza.

“The major barriers identified were fear of side effects and doubts about efficacy.” The study reveals.

Microbiologists and infectious disease experts involved in the study also suggest that the number of dissenters is likely to be broadly representative of health workers worldwide.

This followed a survey conducted by Nursing Times magazine in which it was discovered that just 37 per cent of nurses and frontline health workers said they would take the swine flu vaccine in a survey conducted by Nursing Times magazine. 30 per cent said they would not be immunized and 33 per cent said they were unsure.

Two separate polls of GPs in Britain have also revealed that one in two doctors have severe reservations over the safety of the forthcoming H1N1 flu vaccine, raising serious questions over the government’s planned mass vaccination program.

A poll of doctors for Pulse magazine found that 49% would reject the vaccine with 9% still undecided.

56 of the 115 GPs surveyed said they did not intend to receive the jab, according to the UK’s leading medical weekly publication for health professionals.

A second poll conducted by GP magazine reveals that Up to 60% of GPs have severe doubts over the proposed vaccine. Of 216 GPs surveyed, 29% say they will outright refuse to be vaccinated, while a further 29% remain unsure. Only 41% of doctors said they would definitely take the shot.
