Difficult Thoughts On Abortion and Child Abuse



In June a tragic thing happened in San Antonio, Texas. A teenage mother, one Amanda Hawkins, left her two small children, ages 1 and 2, in a car overnight while she was in a house partying. They were left there till about noon the next day when the outside temperature had risen to 85F. Although she tried to cover up the fact by taking care of the children later when they are said to have already been unconscious, she was eventually convinced to take them to ER. There she lied about what happened. They died later that day from the effects of the heat and neglect they had suffered. [Information Source]

During the course of this event one teenage boy went and slept in the car with the children for a period of time in the night. Also, some of her friends heard the children crying in the car and tried to convince the mother to bring them inside, which she refused to do.

This particular situation brings up several points to ponder.

First of all, I want to discuss the issue of what the friends did or didn't do.

  2. QUE TRISTE NOTICIA HERMANA, QUE MUNDO TAN MALVADO, POBRES INOCENTES, AL FINAL MURIERON COMO TANTOS MILES Y MILES DE NIÑOS, POR MUERTE DE GUERRA, ABANDONO, ASESINATOS, VIOLACIONES, HAMBRE, DESIDIA, HUERFANOS ABANDONADOS Y LA LISTA SIGUE Y SIGUE. NINGUNO DE ESTOS PEQUEÑITOS PIDIO VENIR AL MUNDO, SON VICTIMAS DE UNA SOCIEDAD ENFERMA, MUCHAS VECES POR IGNORANCIA, OTRAS VECES EL ESTADO ES AUSENTE, NO PERMITEN EL ABORTO EL CUAL ESTAMOS TOTALMENTE EN DESACUERDO, PERO AL FINAL, MUEREN POR OTRAS CIRCUNSTANCIAS. TODO NIÑO LLEGARA A LOS BRAZOS DE JESUS, O ACASO EL NO DICE: DEJAD A LOS NIÑOS VENIR A MI?. LOS HUERFANOS TAMBIEN ESTAN MUERTOS EN VIDA SABIA USTED? ¿SABE DE MILES DE NIÑOS QUE VIVEN EN ORFANATOS O HOSPITALES ABANDONADOS? ELLOS ESTAN VIVOS PORQUE EL ESTADO LO MANTIENE, PERO ACOSTO DE QUE? DE QUE ESTAN SOLOS, CRECEN TRISTES, ABANDONADOS, FALTOS DE AMOR MATERNAL, AMOR DE FAMILIA, MI CORAZON SE ENTRISTECE MUCHO, SUFRO POR LOS NIÑOS ABANDONADOS, CON MI ESPOSO ADOPTAMOS 3 NIÑOS CON NECESIDADES ESPECIALES, VIVIAN EN UN HOSPITAL AL CUIDADO DE ENFERMERAS, QUE SOLO SE PREOCUPABAN DE QUE ESTEN SANOS Y DE QUE ESTEN ALIMENTADOS NADA MAS, PERO NO HABIA AMOR, HABIA TRISTEZA EN SUS CORAZONES, HOY SON NIÑOS FELICES, LLENOS DE AMOR DE MAMA Y PAPA, HERMANOS. SI TUVIERA MUCHO DINERO, ADOPTARIA MAS Y MAS, PERO MI SITUACION ECONOMICA NO ES LA MEJOR. ORO PARA QUE LAS MADRES TOMEN CONCIENCIA DE QUE TENER UN HIJO NO ES NADA MAS PARIR Y LISTO, HAY UNA VIDA POR DELANTE PARA CRIARLOS, AMARLOS Y DARLES LO MEJOR QUE UNO PUEDA. ESTOY TRISTE, ME DUELE LA MUERTE DE LOS PEQUEÑOS POR EL ABANDONO DE LA MADRE. QUE DIOS TENGA MISERICORDIA DE ELLA. BENDICIONES HERMANA.

    1. Thank you for your comment. Thank you also for mentioning the verse about Jesus saying, "suffer the little children to come unto me..." That is a good verse to add here.

      I am glad to hear that you and your husband have adopted three special needs children. God bless you for giving them a chance to be happy and healthy. I do know that there are many children suffering miserable lives in orphanages. I am glad that you have done something about it and put shoes on your love.
