Now being Pro-Life here in the US rarely requires us to endure mob violence or imprisonment. But it does require a little bit of social courage—a willingness to looked down on, to be excluded from certain circles. But isn’t it worth it?
To suffer a snub for the sake of justice, for the sake of witnessing to that inconvenient truth: that last year, in the US alone, there were 1.25 million violent—and legally-sanctioned—attacks on human life in the form of abortion?
This does number does not even take into account the tremendous emotional and spiritual injury done to the mothers and fathers of these children, many of whom were deceived into thinking they had no other choice. Few are sufficiently awake to this fact. For that reason, awakening others will require courage: people tend to be grumpy when they’re first woken from sleep.
