Difficult Friendships

anonymous:

Most of my friends are pro choice and I just got rid of our friendships bc of that.

I know that the concept of killing prenatal children is the most divisive conversation possible today. It is important that you do not let friendships be destroyed along with our children. Patience in dealing with abortion advocates is important and can awaken their deeply rooted understanding between right and wrong.

I would ask you to contact your friends again and tell them you have reconsidered their importance in your life. Tell them you love them and that you would like to continue your friendship. Whenever the topic of abortion comes up, calmly bring up factual and logical arguments. Never let it turn into a shouting match. This will be difficult because that is really all an abortion advocate has to fall back on when confronted with the reality of what they are advocating for. Just don’t be drawn into it. Wait for another day when they calm down.

Shifting from a culture of death to one of life will take time. It will take patience. And it will take understanding. Remember, what we are born into is what we tend to believe. The great majority of abortion advocates were born under Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton [1973], and also into families that support the right to kill their own children while living in the womb.

Speak life.
