An Open Letter From An Unborn Child

A few words from the babies that have fallen to abortion.

An Open Letter From An Unborn Child

Abortion is a sensitive topic that creates much controversy. It is a topic that raises many emotions and opinions. I personally do not agree with abortion because of my religion, as well as my personal values, but I cannot and will not cast judgment on anyone who has undergone it or supports it. I agree with the statement that people should have control of their bodies, but I also believe that an unborn child has an identity and should also be entitled to their rights. Below I have written a letter in the perspective of a child in the womb. This is not written to target people who believe in abortion, it is simply written to share the views that I hold.

Dear Mommy,

I have recently discovered my existence. I am in awe and really just astonished to have a soul and a mind. I am having a hard time finding the words to express just how incredible it feels to hold my own identity. I know we haven’t been able to officially meet yet, and I am not all that sure that you are even aware of my existence yet. However, I already feel so close to you. I am living and growing inside a dark place inside of you. Your body provides a certain warmth that emits a feeling of tranquility and a place of refuge. I want to give you a sign that I am here, but I have only just begun my formation. I know that you will find out soon enough, and I cannot wait.

So you heard the news today. You cried more than I thought you would, but maybe it is just happy tears. If I could cry happy tears right now I would because I am so grateful to have been put into your life to be your child. Every time you speak, by heart races. The vibrations of your voice reach the womb where I stay. I feel like I am hearing a muffled voice of an angel. Who knew that I would have an angel as a mother.

I am growing bigger and stronger every day. The most amazing thing happened today, I could wiggle my tiny, fragile fingers. It felt so good. It seems that every day also brings more and more anxiety. Do not get me wrong, I love it in here and appreciate this temporary home, but I cannot wait to see the sparkle in your eyes, your dimples that I hear people compliment constantly, and to feel your warm hugs. I feel butterflies in my stomach when I think about breathing my first breath of air outside.

I can sense that life is a little stressful for you outside the womb. I hope that I am not adding to your stress, that is my last intention. Today’s doctor appointment was kind of weird, don’t you think? Some type of procedure seemed to be the hot topic of discussion. It sounds scary, but I trust you. At least we are going through it together and they said it would be quick. I wish you would not cry so much, it breaks my heart that is now beating by itself.

Mom, I did not like the procedure. It was painful and it sucked my body out before I was ready. It took my body, mind, and soul away from you. I shed my first tears through the process. I wanted to tell you that I loved you, but I could not find the words in that traumatic and agonizing process. I want you to be careful now because I do not want that procedure to hurt you again.

Mom, as I made my exit, my soul departed and was led to heaven. I am in a great place now, but I just wish I could have been your kid first.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
