How do you handle prochoice friends? Those are the only ones I have, it seems… I don’t want to ruin our friendships, but sometimes what they say bothers me.

Most pro-choice advocates were born into a culture that accepts the killing of the prenatal members of our human family as a means to an end. They were raised under laws that claim this is acceptable and very likely raised by parents that agree with these laws. Under these circumstances, we must understand that it is very difficult for them to hold a pro-life view. Compounding this problem is the fact that many have either aborted their own child or know someone very close to them who has. Admitting that abortion is the unjustified killing of an innocent human being would be devastating to their emotional state and to their worldview.

When the topic of abortion comes up, take the opportunity to listen and then to patiently explain why you agree with the scientific community that life begins at fertilization and that human rights should be conferred to all humans, regardless of their size, age, stage of life, or level of dependency. This is simple common sense and over time more and more people will awaken to this reality.

I encourage you to read my blog as well as other pro-life resources for ways to address counter arguments. This rabid pro-choice advocate was converted to pro-life after many patient pro-life conversations with friends.

Together, we can end the tragedy of human abortion. Be unafraid, unashamed, and unrelenting in your pursuit of true human equality.
