forgotten children

You hear those voices loud and clear to protect the unborn, but only silence once the child is born.

Some children are born into a loving family that will house, feed, clothe, and care for them when they have ills. That makes for a happy story, but this is not life. There are two sides to every story. Some children are born into a life of sadness. Some people in this world should not have children; they are not mentally or financially stable. We have all seen or heard in the news about children who have been beaten, starved, tortured, raped and murdered. Did we bring these children into the world for this kind of hell? Many of these children now live on the streets, state centers or orphanages.

Where are those loud voices now? I have yet to see those loud voices making a stampede to the above places to give these children help and love or bring them into their homes. These are the forgotten children.
