Are you really Pro-Life?

Are you really Pro-Life?

I’ve commented on this a number of times. But yes – you are not pro-life if you are not willing to put everything into nurturing every life. If your pro-life efforts end with the womb you are just anti-abortion. Pro-life is something reserved for the entire life of an individual not just their birth.

How can I tell if I’m actually pro-life?

  • Imagine a world where "pro-life" efforts included feeding hungry childrenIf you are not pro-gay life you are not pro-life
  • If you are not pro-muslim life you are not pro-life
  • If you are not pro-poor life you are not pro-life
  • If you are not pro-christian life you are not pro-life
  • If you are not pro-immigrant life you are not pro-life
  • If you are not pro-black life you are not pro-life
  • If you are not pro-asian life you are not pro-life
  • If you are not pro-trans life you are not pro-life

Do you see the pattern?

Life is life at whatever stage in its course or shape that happens to be.

If you claim to be pro-life, but fight humans as groups or feel they shouldn’t be afforded all the opportunities you are – then you are not pro-life. If you feel you have a civil right that others don’t get like marriage, equality, or freedom – then you aren’t really pro-life. If you justify and excuse actions because of fear, terror, or “they” kill their own – you are not pro-life.

Don’t confuse being anti-abortion with being pro-life; these are not equivalent terms. Make the choice to be Pro-life and use the phrase in a way that is truthful and honest
