The Right to One's Personhood- Prop. 26

I have a REAL BIG Problem with a fellow blogger and her supporters. I used to be a friend of hers on Facebook, until recently when she spoke so candidly about life “I will always be a pro-choicer.” This is after many times on her blog and Facebook that she, in fact has stated that she is Catholic? I was speechless when I read that last week! TODAY threw me for the biggest loop! She was talking about Prop. 26 (The Personhood Amendment) and after all of her followers chimed in, they were CLEARLY against it and might I add, glad that it didn’t pass in Mississippi! Now, for someone who tried many times to have a baby, someone who is Catholic (but really ALL Christians for that matter) how could you stand for freezing your baby or throwing away your baby? First of all just because science CAN do something, we still have to ask ourselves from a moral perspective SHOUlD it do something. It is NOT our rights as people to HAVE PEOPLE. We don’t mandate our lives, God does. Thus it is never your RIGHT to have a child. No matter how much you want it, to have a child is not our right- and society has screwed that up. A child, a human, a wonderful creation that is formed at the very moment of conception, natural conception, is a wonderful GIFT. When we involve others in our marital act of love and procreation, there is room to ask, who might be the mother or the father—Is it the nurse retrieving the egg? Could it be the doctor combining the egg with the sperm? It’s possible that the assistant collecting your sperm donation could take credit? Or maybe it’s the Practitioner that puts it all back up inside of you since he is the one that actually MADE the child, right? Science is wonderful. But we aren’t God. In the CCC it states, 2270 “Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.” Freezing embryos that women no longer want would be a form of abandonment on the person’s part and would interfere with one’s PERSONHOOD. Throwing away and donating to science, un-wanted embryos would be killing a child for no apparent reason than that of selfish reasons, which also infringes on ones PERSONHOOD. You might ask, “So you and your husband don’t plan on IVF or IUI treatments, or won’t ever use birth control or won’t do a common sperm donation?” No. We don’t/ we won’t and we haven’t. We believe that birth contol is an abortifacient and we belive in Natural Family Planning. So even though we are taking fertility medicaitons now, we have followed OUR beliefs, not those of a DOCTOR. We will always be TTC, because we believe in that; we believe in life! If we can’t naturally as possible, conceive a child, then we will pray until we do. If God ever naturally blesses us with one, we would be so happy. We both believe in Natural Conception to Natural Death, as does the Catholic Church. We both understand it is not our right to HAVE a child. It hurts me to see someone on Face book and in the Blog world that has such an impact on women Trying To Conceive, who admits to being a Catholic Christian, that doesn’t recognize the damage she is doing and the disservice she is doing, by shouting from the roof tops, the un-necessity of Prop. 26. She not only looks thoughtless, but unwise in her faith. I am leaving you with a 33 minute video. You might be left with confusion, thinking—this video is about abortion, not the “Personhood Amendment” But it is. Whether the child is one hour, one day, one month in the womb, or one hour, one day, one month in the “world” why would you just freeze him or throw him away? Would you freeze your one month old because you already had 4 children and needed a baby sitter…hopefully not. But so many freeze and throw away those that they cannot hold, those that they don’t see as REAL. They are real humans. They have a personhood and they have a right to their life. "The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being's right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death.” Donum vitae III 79
