What if being pro-life meant more than being anti-abortion?
It was a simple question I read on social medial. I couldn’t get it out of my head. It followed me to bed, and it was still there when I woke up.
What if pro-lifers were actually pro-life?
When we call ourselves pro-life, what are really saying? Just that we are against abortion? Or are we really pro-LIFE?
Are we talking about life as in a breathing, functioning organism or life as in truly living with rights and justice and basic needs?
Are we just as passionate about children without basic needs, who are literally starving to death?
Why don’t we protest the deplorable conditions in which the majority of the world lives in, you know since we are pro-LIFE?!
We are pro-freedom and anti-slavery. Just as we desire to give unborn babies the opportunity of birth, let’s birth out a movement of LIFE for countless children enslaved. Let’s deliver them into LIFE. For right now they are being torn limb by limb and discarded like yesterday’s waste.
We are pro-love and anti-hate. We cherish life regardless of race, country of origin, immigration status, marital status, parental status, special needs, sexual orientation and sin.
We are pro-LIFE.
We are lovers of life, of the One who breathed us into life and the One who holds eternal life.
How can we pick and choose which lives are worth mourning, fighting and dying for?
Are we pro-life, friends?
Are we pro-loving our neighbors as ourselves? Pro-breathing life into others pain?
What if they had an abortion? performs abortions? assists in abortions?
Are we pro-their-life?
Or only those we deem worthy of life?
And what right do we have to decide when we have been shown GREAT mercy from the ultimate judge?
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved— Ephesians 2:4-5
I don’t know about you, but I want to be PRO-ALL-LIFE!
Go love well, sweet friends!
