Barbara Walters, Patti Stanger have it all, but not choosing children led to regret
In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, Walters freely confessed that her biggest regret in her otherwise-successful life was not having more children.
Walters said that she only had one daughter, and she had one sister (who is no longer alive), and feels that her family is just too small.
Similarly, the ‚ÄúMillionaire Matchmaker,‚ÄĚ Patti Stanger, recently told OK! Magazine that her ‚Äúbiggest regret‚ÄĚ was not having children.
My biggest regret is I didn‚Äôt have children. I had an abortion in my 20s. I was pregnant, and I didn‚Äôt have enough money and I didn‚Äôt think it was ok to have a child and be a single parent. And now look, everybody‚Äôs doing that....
is it realistic to assume that had these women found and accepted the gospel they would have immediately given birth,being a mother saves no one,it is true that feminism has attacked motherhood mercilessly but the greatest attack has come against God and the existence and signifigance of God in the lives of human beings....there will be many childless(in this life) men and women in heaven and to assume that not being a mother or father will be the greatest regret of the lost is not wise because it won't be....the loss of their soul will be.
Ladies, especially young ones, take note: this is the fruit (or lack thereof) of feminism.
When these women are dying, the regret will probably hit them squarely in the face more than ever, for they will have no husband or few if any children to comfort them at their deathbed before they leave this world and enter eternity.
May they both come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ before it's too late.
Chris, you're quite right, and perhaps you should see if there are Crisis pregnancy centers, Note: Catholic and Planned Parenthood can use the term Crisis Pregnancy Center also, and this Wikipedia article while informative, is somewhat toward conservative Christian ones. But the Wikipedia article does contain a lot of information.
John Piper has had a major influence on my life. He taught me so many things, like teaching me about true joy. True joy comes from living life to the glory of God, may these two ladies figure this out before it's too late.
on the other side of recognizing the act for what it is, is Jesus Christ who offers forgiveness to those who repent and believe in His finished work.
same with any and all sin, the evasion of the truth that is so prevalent in politics, for healing, there must be a time of acknowledging a sin as a sin, many would rather spend a lifetime running.... reminds me of the scene from the movie about William Wilberforce, he took the elite in their boats with their sweets on a river tour and forced the boats to stop where the slave ship was docked. they wanted to cover their noses and run away. it isn't until we smell the stench of our sin that we can begin to see the problem for what it is. an issue of avoidance that every generation must deal with, probably why many like to watch news that they know is not telling them the truth! give us our sweets and let us forget!
I used to watch the Millionaire Matchmaker and Patti S is pretty foul. Anyway, before even reading on, I was stopped cold at how she nonchalantly mentioned that she had an abortion in her 20's. Society seems to be so numb over what the word really means; throwing it around like it's no big deal..next. Abortion is so barbaric and I still can't believe that any mother can murder a baby at will and for any reason. Such an odd way of viewing it...if we can't see it, it's not alive, it's not human, it's not life. Funny thing: murder a baby while in the womb, and it's like, whatever...life goes on. Murder that same baby the moment it's delivered and you are a monster; the world wails at the news coverage, wondering how anyone could do such an awful thing.
