Adversity can be met with love and courage. I never want to hear again how physically unhealthy it is for a teen to have a baby. While nobody is happy about teen pregnancy, if this beautiful little woman can do it without killing herself, a 14-year-old can too. YES, I SAID FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD!
If you just screamed, "Oh muh gawd! Honey, come here and look at what this horrible anti-choicer just said--she WANTS babies to have babies! How unhealthy!! How cruel, archaic and oppressive!!!"--then note to you: look for a future post on the lovely woman ("Missy") who attends my church. I intend to tell you her story and interview her mother--who was FOURTEEN at the time of Missy's birth.
Missy is my friend. I am glad she is alive, and I'm NOT sorry.
