There are Givers, and There are Takers

Leslie Brown

While Liberal women moan about Hobby Lobby not providing four kinds of birth-control while providing SIXTEEN others, I find it strikingly sad that some women have that mindset, while this mother sacrificed her very life for her unborn child.

Tennessee pastor’s wife Lakisha Mitchell got the good news, and then the bad: a baby on the way, and Stage 3 breast cancer. Knowing her prognosis would suffer, she decided to limit chemotherapy for the sake of her baby. In other words, she went without something that would poison her baby to her detriment while other women CLAMOR for poison to KILL their baby for their convenience. Got it.

Lakisha did get to hold her baby boy; she even recorded a lullaby to for him, but she put an other first. Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do? God, others, and then ourselves? What does that tell us that the feminists are all about? Me, me, and then, oh yeah, ME again.

It is absolutely stunning the hypocrisy of simultaneously saying, “My body my choice” while wanting to end the life of another’s body who had NO choice, or say-so in the matter. One of my favorite quotes by Ronald Reagan is,

I can’t help but notice, that all of the people that are for abortion have already been born.

I’ve been in a Twitter debate with a young lady (I assume), who wants me to justify my stance on abortion. I believe abortion is plain and simply morally wrong. Murder is murder, and we should “Do unto others as we would have them do unto us.” I know I don’t want to be ripped limb from limb…how about you?

If you have no soul, and still don’t have a problem with abortion; look at the science…it’s just plain mean.

    I want to preface my criticism of this article with the statement that it is in no way a criticism of LaKisha Mitchell or her actions.

    The title of the article reveals the biggest flaw in the authors conception of reality. That the women of world (or men) can be classified as either givers or takers – as though they are only one or the other. People make relationship decisions every single day – some times we give of ourselves and sometimes we receive from others – and that is as it should be. To say that feminists are all takers and, thereby, imply that to be a giver you must reject feminism is ridiculous. In addition, the term “feminism” isn’t synonymous with “pro-Choice.” In fact, I am a feminist – I believe women are equal to men – but I am also strictly pro-Life – I value protecting children and innocent life.

    I applaud the courage that this mother showed in protecting her child at the cost of her own life. But she made a choice that affected her family. This is one more child who will grow up without a mother. She left a husband alone to raise their children. Was she “wrong” for that? Of course not, but more importantly – she didn’t make the choice alone – she and her husband made the right choice for their family.

    Finally, glorification of women-martyrs is one of the single most damaging practices the church has employed for our membership. Telling girls that their role in the world is to give up everything for the men in their lives reduces them to mere tools in the life of men. For years the church remained silent when pastors, deacons, and other male parishioners were knowingly physically and emotionally abusing their wives/children and being unfaithful to them. Women were told to stay in abusive relationships because they were to submit to their husbands. It is an awful legacy the church must abandon.

    In summation – the whole of mankind cannot be reduced to 2 categories – giver or taker. In our lives we make decisions. Sometimes we give and sometimes we receive. Sometimes we think we are giving and sometimes we think we are taking – only to discover that our spouse/friend/family saw the situation in a completely different light.

      Good discussion! If I prompt people to think, that is the goal. A good teacher doesn’t give answers, they prompt the searching for an answer. Thank you for sharing Melissa.
