GO WITH ME BACK IN TIME ABOUT 75 YEARS.  See the little girl, that’s me, playing paper dolls in the room next to the kitchen where mom and her friend are talking.  I hear certain words – “…baby was tiny…about two inches… … down the toilet…”  Fragments of conversation from which I concluded someone had a baby and dropped it down the toilet where it died.  I knew nothing about sex, pregnancy, birth, miscarriage; but I knew about toilets – the outhouse with a hole that held disgusting, stinking human waste.  I didn’t think I should have overheard what was said, so I was horrified but remained mum.

I was horrified again last night when I saw that a federal judge in Texas has prohibited a bill that would require hospitals and clinics to give proper burial or cremation to aborted fetuses.  As it stands now, fetuses are disposed of as “biological material waste.”  Mixed in with the horrid cancers,  infected intestines, and other poisonous body parts!  Dropped down the hole in the outhouse!

Horrified at eight; horrified at eighty+!   But no longer mum.  Biological material waste?  They are babies!  Deserving of somebody’s grief! Generic words serve only to try to neutralize the act!  Political cowards!

Well, I have ended up yelling,  haven’t I?  This is enough for today but I warn you I am no longer mum.


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Neither am I, dear. More passionate than I was as a child. Anger like Jesus as actions and events that defy the reality that ‘life’ itself the very ‘breath’ of life is sacred. Scientists can produce ‘conception’ through IVF but only God breathes life’ Thanks for graphic ‘wake up’.

    Great post! It is so sad that some people do not value a life of a child and certainly disgusting to dispose of these babies in such a manner. The living…have their chance of life….Only because they were given the opportunity to grow until they were ready to be born. People are ready to defend the life of a born child…..why can’t they defend a child that is waiting to grow strong enough to be born and join society.

      Precious little things. I think of all the mothers who were involved in that Dr ? who finally was convicted of baby killing. I grieve for them too. What an act to look back on – submitting themselves to that murderer. Most had no idea of what was really happening to them. They fall for the Planned Parenthood propaganda.

  3. There has to be a better and compassionate way. These are not garbage!

  4. I am hosting a blog party right now on my blog and you are invited.
    Here’s the link

      Jacque I went to the party but did not find the people. Found rules, food, and music. I’m going back and try again. I wanted to come back to answer these comments before I began heavy partying! 😀

  5. I totally agree with you and understand. My daughter was a premature baby of 28 week gestation. She was very tiny but she was beautiful. She is even more beautiful now.
    Nice meeting you at the party. I’m Miriam. I invite you to visit my blog and I’ll leave you a link with my daughter in it.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes, Miriam, I remember coming over from the party. I assumed that was your lovely daughter in the wedding picture. How much you would have lost if you had not stuck with the deal even when it looked like she might not make it. Good for you and for your daughter. I don’t think I left a follow so I’ll hop back to be sure. Want to travel with you.

  6. Where is the dignity in this? On a map, we are labeled “Insult to Injury” — You Are Here.

  7. Good for you! This makes me sick too. I’m glad you are talking about this.
