One more heart stopped

Hey everyone, I'm sorry I haven't been posting regularly lately, I've been very busy. ..but I'll be doing my best to post regularly from now on. Anyway, I found this on It is a very powerful and heartbreaking post where an unborn baby silently communicates with his mother.

"Month One
Mommy I am only 8 inches long but I have all my organs. I love the sound of your voice. Every time I hear it I wave my arms and legs. The sound of your heart beat is my favorite lullaby.

Month Two
Mommy today I learned how to suck my thumb. If you could see me you could definitely tell that I am a baby. I'm not big enough to survive outside my home though. It is so nice and warm in here.

Month Three
You know what Mommy I'm a boy!! I hope that makes you happy. I always want you to be happy. I don't like it when you cry. You sound so sad. It makes me sad too and I cry with you even though you can't hear me.

Month Four
Mommy my hair is starting to grow. It is very short and fine but I will have a lot of it. I spend a lot of my time exercising. I can turn my head and curl my fingers and toes and stretch my arms and legs. I am becoming quite good at it too.

Month Five
You went to the doctor today. Mommy, he lied to you. He said that I'm not a baby. I am a baby Mommy, your baby. I think and feel. Mommy, what's abortion?

Month Six
I can hear that doctor again. I don't like him. He seems cold and heartless. Something is intruding my home. The doctor called it a needle. Mommy what is it? It burns! Please make him stop! I can't get away from it! Mommy! HELP me!

Month Seven
Mommy I am okay. I am in Jesus's arms. He is holding me. . . He told me about abortion. . . Why didn't you want me Mommy?

Every abortion is just . . . One more heart that was stopped.
Two more eyes that will never see.
Two more hands that will never touch.
Two more legs that will never run.
One more mouth that will never speak.

It is a baby and abortion is murder. We must end abortion. Defend those who can not speak for themselves yet."

I was thinking about this this morning and thought it would be very effective if it was turned into a video.
