I’m ashamed to say it, but I went through college thinking anti-abortion advocacy wasn’t worth it. Sure, I’d advocate for a consistent ethic of life when it came to issues like war- but I didn’t understand the scope and horror of the silent genocide going on in this world. I think I was just burnt on the anti-abortion advocates that were so hateful… they looked and sounded too much like the homophobic protesters and pharisaical “christians.”
But, earlier this year, I was convicted about my apathy. No, I will not be hateful and attack the pre or post abortive mothers or the doctors and medical personnel performing the abortions, but I will speak out for life. I will advocate for the babies who are labeled “tissue” and then dismembered in the womb. I can no longer stand by and say nothing.
