WHAT!? If you’re pro life, you’re pro life, end of story -– right? WRONG. I know, because I used to be one of those pro-lifers that are pro-life in name only. I didn’t do anything to stop the killing of unborn babies and really, I just thought that it was “someone else’s” job to fight abortion. As it turns out, I was wrong. I am responsible. What changed my mind? The babies — And a group known as Created Equal.
As some of you might know, my sister has become very active in the pro-life movement, joining Created Equal’s Justice Ride last spring, and getting more deeply involved over these past few months. She has a burning PASSION for the unborn, which was quite radical to my mediocre way of thought…
My first time doing any type of pro-life work was last July in Elkhart, IN at a #ProtestPP rally. My heart was saddened as I stood at the street corner passing out leaflets regarding the atrocity that Planned Parenthood does every day; the murder of the most innocent among us, which we have come to know as ‘abortion.’ I saw the faces of many who had been hardened against our work, and I was cussed at for the first time in my 22 years. That day I went home feeling like a wet noodle. I was exhausted. And this wasn’t as frightening as I had imagined.
Later I went to Fort Wayne and stood with many outside the Planned Parenthood for another #ProtestPP.
Then, a couple weeks ago I went with my sister and a bunch of her Created Equal friends to the March for Life and another #ProtestPP in Washington, D.C. WOAH. I was blown away. These guys (Created Equal) are the real deal. They had 2 JumboTrons alongside the March for Life route showing the truth about abortion, so that the victims of abortion could testify at their own March.
A couple others and I held warning signs among the Marchers, because some don’t want to see what abortion does. Some don’t want to know what abortion looks like, and to be honest, I don’t either, but WE as a nation are the ones doing this baby killing. [I am thankful that those the Marchers were marching for, our unborn, were represented at their own march.]
We ARE responsible, and we MUST stand up and be a voice for the voiceless. The voice of truth is not always fun, nor is it usually what we want to hear, but we mustn’t sit idly by and ignore the silent screams of next generations being killed while we are complacent, selfish and self-preserving.
I wrote this in January of 2016. Not sure why I never published it, but I didn’t. My plea to you today is to GET INVOLVED! If you don’t volunteer at a pregnancy center or do some kind of active outreach, consider getting involved in those ways, and think of what else you can do: financially support a person who has dedicated their life to this work, call your local Pregnancy Resource Center, ask what they most need and host a baby shower for them… There is SO much you can do. Lives hang in the balance.
