YOU CHOSE

You chose
To ignore your elders
When
They told you
Sex is dangerous . .

"Do you want a child
Now?
Who will pay for it?
You're too young!
You've got your
education
to consider!"


You chose
To ignore
All the devices
Available
In the modern world
To guard against
Conception:

birth control pill
diaphragm
male condom
female condom
spermicides
implants
injectables
intrauterine devices
natural family planning


You chose
To get high
On alcohol
Or drugs
And hang
With a fast crowd.

Pursuing sex
with guys
who will never
raise your child.


You chose . .

sex over caution
passion over wisdom
now over then
today over tomorrow
you over him

. . the child.

And now
All of your
Choices
Have made a
Life
Within you
Within your womb

all silliness
yesterday
an expectant mother
today

You chose
This
With all of your
Choices.

And now
You choose
to end
this life!?!

to abort?
to murder?
to kill?

. . . this life
You have created
With all of your
Choices.

But
Is that really your
Choice?
Or is it God's
Who says . .

"Now
is the time
for you to bring
into the world
a Life
for all of your
choices!"
