Mother is more than just a word
By Kim Roberts
Hands down, one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had the privilege of undertaking is becoming a mother to three perfect (most of the time) children.
I would not trade one moment of being a mother for anything in the world. Nothing has meant more to me or been more rewarding than raising my children.
The thought that Congress has the audacity to propose a rules package that will ban the word mother, and all gender specific familial words, in its chamber room is absolutely unacceptable to me. I am a mother, daughter, sister, aunt and proud of it. I refuse to be canceled.
Being a mother is sacred and quite possibly one of the most impactful concepts of all human existence. Let’s get down to the basics, God created male and female (Genesis1:27), period the end.
“Mother” is an undeniable, fundamental biological fact. It captures the very unbreakable bond between a baby and the woman that carried him or her in their body for nine months and gave them the gift of life. Being called mom is not subjective, it is a reality.
To ban the word mother is denying the very existence of women and their roles as mothers and raising children.
Let’s face it, none of us would be here if it weren’t for their mothers saying yes to one of God’s greatest gifts. How can anyone even consider eradicating the word mother or father, daughter, son, sister or brother?
The word mother and all that is entails can not be stricken from existence, no matter what politicians deem appropriate.
God is the ultimate authority and created women to be mothers. Our bodies are designed perfectly for this task. No one can deny God’s will or motherhood.
