walking through the airport earlier this week and seeing this article made me freeze in my footsteps. as someone who is sterile, there is something so callous and cold about it.
it made me angry.
people are obsessed (mostly infertile people) on why some people can have children (as many as they want) and why some cannot have as many as they would like (or any at all).
even the economists are saying they have the answer.
recently, a blog reader asked me something one of her friends asked her.Why does God allow righteous women to miscarry or not be able to have children? I have friends who have experienced miscarriages, I have had several miscarriages, and I have many other friends who can’t get pregnant. Why does God not allow righteous women the opportunity to have children while there are so many unwanted pregnancies around the world? Doesn’t it seem beyond unfair?
from what i read in The Economist, and i admit i could not stomach to spend too much time on it, the answer is the save the earth. (insert a hearty annoyed eye roll.)
my answer that i gave (which i will share later) was a little more spiritually based.
what do you think?
what would you tell this friend?
