I have been reflecting upon recent articles written on the subject of abortion. It occurred to me as ironic that pro-lifers and pro-abortionists alike frequently use the same language when discussing what an abortionist does to a human being. Abortionists often are referred to as "providers." The act of abortion is called "a procedure" that is "performed." Recently I even saw abortifacient drugs described as "providing a service." In other words, we commonly use euphemistic language when referring to abortion.
Compassion and generosity are hallmarks of motherhood. As we look forward to this Mother's Day, there is a singularly meaningful way that expectant mothers can show compassion and give hope to people in need: by donating umbilical cord blood.
Cord blood, normally disposed of after birth, is unlike any other blood donation. It can be the only potentially life-saving treatment option for thousands of patients suffering from truly devastating blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma.
