The petals of a rose are as delicate as can be.
That's why it has a stem of thorns to protect its' liberty.
Each petal torn and plucked apart reminds us of the steps
the day Christ carried His cross, walked for us, and
gave His life away. To protect us from a life of sin,
His life plucked out by the hands of men.
A crown of thorns placed upon His head that pricked Him
first and then He bled, reminds us as each time we're
pricked by a thorn on a long stemmed rose, unlike the rose
that has its' thorns, the unborn child has no defense.
To pluck its' life out limb by limb to me does not make sense.
God who created "the bang" and "the ape", regardless of
what you believe, by His Might and by His Power first
created "the you" and "the me."
How can a God who created man allow such a tragedy?
I'm quickly reminded "It isn't ME." That's done by
"the you" and "the me." "Man" made his choice and
took Christ's life but we know that Christ arose.
The abortionist, by man's own choice, creates a
Helpless, Lifeless ROSE.
