Blog world, I would like to introduce our first born son, Solomon! Contrary to my belief that I would be pregnant forever, Solomon was was born Sunday. He weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces and was 20 inches long. We labored long and hard (labor story for another blog) for over 48 hours, but nothing has ever been more worth it.

David did amazing. He was my hero through the entire process and never left my side. He prayed for me, recited my favorite passages of scripture, and went through every contraction with me. I’m healing quickly and feeling better every day. Solomon is a beautiful and healthy baby boy, and he already has quite a personality!

Thank you for all your prayers and support. We will never be the same again!

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! “
Psalm 34:8

Now for some photos!!

This is what some will say, even when abortions are determined by gender and race discrimination.

As a pro-life, self-proclaimed Christian feminist, I find myself baffled by female pro-choicers.

I’m not sure which is more confusing to me, the fact that ending the life of an unwanted, unborn child is somehow a decision of personal health and right.

OR that fact that many pro-choicers are against/opposing/fighting a bill that bans abortions that are being elected because of gender and/or race of an unborn baby. Even when the individual is claiming to end the beating heart inside of them NOT for “personal health or right”, but in discrimination against that beating heart’s gender (nearly always because couples desire a male instead of a female child) or race, the bill is still being fought by pro-choice advocates. Women standing up for the so called “reproductive rights” of women are fighting for women to be able to discriminate against an unborn woman and end her life while she has no voice.

The contradiction is baffling.

Please don’t hear what I am not saying. I’m not writing this to judge or condemn any woman who has had an abortion. I am, however, challenging the logic of those advocates against this bill.

Someone please explain this to me. The reasoning is about to make my brain explode.

Read about this debate in The Washington Post in a recent article.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.
