In reference to Mr. Wessling’s editorial (May 6) commenting on Oklahoma’s new law requiring women to see the images of their babies on a monitor before deciding to tear them to pieces I agree: it may bring tears to their eyes.

These women won’t shed any more tears than they will after the deed is done and they realize there is no putting those pieces back together. 

The girl who decides to face the consequences of having the baby, no matter what problems she has to face, will find the Lord there to help her if she will call upon him. There are many loving couples wanting to adopt that baby and many resources available if she decides to parent.  And her life will be much happier than having to later seek the Lord’s forgiveness. While he will forgive, she’ll carry that burden in her heart forever.
