We have been preparing for this day, and it is here. The Devil has reared his frightening face at the expense of our most helpless, vulnerable and precious members of society; our brand new babies.
Thinking of the transition from womb to world is sad enough- make no mistake, there is nothing joyous about birth for our babies. It is a miserable and terrifying experience for them and our only job in life once they are born is to try to make them comfortable.
Our doctors are supposed to help us to do that. Instead, the most “esteemed” group of doctors in our country is stretching their too big ego’s again by pushing in the direction opposite the rest of the world. This is precisely why our country is laughed at by so many. Today though, there is no laughter. Instead, the world is silent. The silence that comes from knowing that an atrocity has occurred against a defenseless group of people.
In the coming months we will concretely share why this is so.
But today we grieve. We think of the number of newborns who will be sexually violated within days of being born. Our hearts ache for the mothers who find out the truth too late- who wait in their hospital room, gut-wrenching, while they think of the undeniable pain that their precious loves are in. Alone.
We pray for the babies whose penises will be further disfigured by the AAP’s revised statement. We sob for the increased number of babies who will die on the surgical table away from their mothers arms.
For the first time in my life, there is a group that I cannot bring myself to pray for- the doctors who decided that a decline in revenue should be “righted” instead of the treatment of babies. No, I cannot bring myself to pray for those who are evil.
Instead, I will exorcise evil. I will continue to work hard with the many knowledgeable and dedicated volunteers. Together, we will stay up through the night educating just one more person. We will spend our “time off” creating more efficient ways of dissecting the lies that greed and evil bring.
We will succeed- we are succeeding. We will continue the trend of increasing the number of boys who are spared from this violent and vicious act.
Not today though. Today we will grieve. For the mothers, the fathers, the activists and the advocates. We will grieve for the doctors who are categorized incorrectly, yet honor their oath.
Today I will grieve for myself and my son. For all that was taken from us, for the part of our relationship that will never be returned. I will grieve for loss that my son will not regain- that was stolen by the tentacles of evil.
Tomorrow, I will wake up and honor the fire that is possessed by any mother whose son has been violated. It will drive me just as it fuels those around me.
Today, we will grieve. Tomorrow we will get back to work- with a new passion, an increased determination and no tolerance for evil.
