I Feel Like No One Is Listening

I'll just say it: Barack Obama voted against saving the life of infants that survive late-term abortion.

Let's say you're a liberal and you agree with his pro-choice position. You can stomach his support of late-term abortions because you feel that if they are banned it will cause a slippery slope and abortions may become illegal altogether. But how in the world can anyone vote for a man who is okay with a living baby being left to die in a janitor's closet as medical waste?

I'm sitting here watching the coverage of the democratic convention, where tens of thousands of people are applauding this man that supports infanticide. How does this happen? My heart hurts to think about it.

I know some conservatives have trouble casting their vote for John McCain. I have trouble casting my vote for John McCain, but darnit I will, because I can't stand the idea of Obama getting to appoint supreme court justices who support his position.

Feeling Sluggish

Originally uploaded by jodisue

I know, I have not blogged in awhile. I have been gestating Ethan's little brother or sister while taking care of Ethan (and our dog) on my own while Steve is deployed, and honestly it has made me a bit tired. But to make up for it, I have done a small evening photo session with my boy tonight and added the photos to my flickr page (it does not have as much esteem as my husband's flickr page, but is getting better).

Oh, and for you curious ones out there, I have been to the doctor and they used their fancy machines to tell me that I am eleven weeks pregnant and due on March 17th. Since I don't think my baby has a calendar in there I will take that to mean pretty much any time in March. A Spring birthday!
