Last night I happened to see a piece on the news regarding abortion rights and protesting.  I try to tune the news out as much as I can, but I thought it was interesting that a group of women were protesting for the right to abortion and most of them were my age or older.  It made me wonder why grandmas would be out there calling for the death of the unborn.  Are they getting sick of babysitting their children’s children?  I can’t imagine what their motive is.

I did a little research and discovered that an organization called GRR to denote Grandmas for Reproductive Rights, was founded by an 82 year old woman named Judy Kahrl.  Her father, Dr. Clarence Gamble, was a crusader for reproductive rights before that term was ever used.  He was also involved in the eugenics movement.  He set up birth control clinics which eventually became Planned Parenthood.  I suppose Judy grew up with this all her life and never thought there was an option.

I don’t wish to judge anyone in their opinions, because I am definitely not one to preach or sound holier than thou, but I simply don’t understand why there is a need to kill the unborn rather than making them available for adoption. It seems more “convenient” to get rid of it before it happens.

It appears that Judy’s group is growing by leaps and bounds and grandmas across the country are using their spare time to hold up signs and try to convince young women to abort their unborn and use contraception.  Maybe they should turn that around, with the contraception coming first.

Maybe young women need to be told by older women that sex isn’t a casual thing that you do on a whim.  Sex before marriage has become the norm and whose fault is that?  Maybe many of us grannys didn’t bother to tell their daughters to wait until marriage – to respect the act enough not to give it away to anyone and everyone.  All of this leads to STDs, emotional problems, guilt and so much more.

May I suggest a group of Grandmothers willing to stand for adoption and better sex education from a religious standpoint.  We’ve all become afraid to speak out on this very acceptable way of life for our young women.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  Life is precious on both ends of the spectrum.  To end it before it begins or before it ends is against everything that God holds dear.






As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

      Amen. Those old ladies should know better.


      • One would think but it seems to be a bit of it more if a rationale game– they won’t necessarily support outright abortion but rather contraception and therefore they justify this approach as it’s not out right abortion but rather a preemptive strike — but the true responsibility lies in being able to understand that sex can lead to pregnancy regardless of contraception and if you don’t want a pregnancy, don’t have sex

        Too simple a solution for too many. That philosophy died with the “me” generation.


  2. Oh… this is heartbreaking and maddening.

    I came too close to losing my ability to have children, due to the “ideal” of eugenics. Fifty years ago, when I had a post-traumatic nervous breakdown at the age of 14, I was diagnosed with schizophrenia and locked up in a state mental institution, one of those massive human warehouses that has since been closed and torn down. At that time, proponents of eugenics were trying to pass laws that would force the sterilization of everyone who was deemed “mentally ill.” They did not want our kind having children.

    Today, I have a son who is the manager of two motels in California, a daughter who was recently accepted into a highly rated graduate program to further her studies in psychology, and a granddaughter who is currently studying at Harvard University, in the social anthropology graduate program.

    Every day I thank God for my children, my grandchildren, and my adorable great grandson. What kind of a grandmother would march and rally for the “right” to kill babies? It’s evil.

      What a sad story, my friend. You’ve been through hell and come back stronger. I admire your perseverance in adversity and praise God that he has blessed you with your children. I’m also anxious to hear how your new therapy is working out.

      I can’t understand what drives anyone to take life in any way, especially those of us who love our grandchildren. Shame on them indeed!
