Yesterday a bunch of protesters were on campus protesting abortion (I myself am pro-life as well) however, my college is a very liberal school and did not take kindly to the large signs displaying dismembered babies on it. On top of that, the protesters had children handing out flyers. When people would ask questions, the person would begin to respond and then the passerby would just walk away. How do you get the point across when people don’t even want to hear it?
The war on abortion will not be won with a single fight, it will be won as any war is won, with a series of battles attacking from many different positions over a period of time.
Getting some people to even listen to you is a challenge because there is an invisible finger on the scale. Many have either had an abortion or know someone close to them who has had one. This makes it difficult for them to listen to the voice of the unborn. To embrace the pro-life position would mean admitting that they either killed their own child or that they encouraged or supported someone else who killed theirs.
Please read through my blog for ideas on how to approach this fight. I do not focus on just one aspect of this human tragedy, I attack it from every angle and facet possible. This includes never letting abortion become destigmatized, yet reaching out to help those who have had a change of heart and need to heal. It means showing the reality of human abortion in no uncertain terms while lighting the path toward the beauty to be found in a culture founded on the principles of life and hope.
But most importantly, you must be unafraid, unashamed, and unrelenting.
