Share a Message of Pro-Life Through Redemption
Since Roe v. Wade was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973, most fact centers point to over 50 million Americans having died by abortion.
That’s a lot of suffering and lives lost.
That’s a lot of families who were never formed. Couples who never married. Doctors who never found new cures. Leaders who were never born.
Fifty million people is by far more than all of the American military casualties of war combined.
Two days ago we celebrated the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. – a day when we could only imagine what he might have accomplished had he not been assassinated at the young age of 39.
Today we’re left to wonder what could have been if those 50 million lives were walking among us.
Though our Founding Fathers proclaimed we’re all equal, being endowed by God with certain rights – namely Life – the Supreme Court said otherwise.
And how ironic that the ruling denies Liberty – the power or scope to act as one pleases, otherwise known as choice – from defenseless human beings.
That’s nothing to say of the Pursuit of Happiness, which of course, the unborn never get to realize.
Every human person is formed by God, even the smallest and the weakest. That’s why the right to life is the most basic, fundamental and essential right.
How and why this remains a national debate is hard to grasp given our Founding Fathers’ guidance, and a set of Commandments which steer so many religions.
Thou shalt not kill isn’t open to interpretation. Most of us agree that raping, stealing, cheating, lying and discriminating is wrong.
So why not killing?
We can start by building a culture where American values matter. Faith in God, loving families, support for our communities – these are the core values of America that must unite us all.
And we can’t build that culture unless we meet.
Behind all of those 50 million lives lost are 100 million women and men who have names and stories.Advocates for life must walk with them. Meet, talk and understand. And share a message of hope.
Redemption can be an advocate for change.
