I’m 13 years old and I want to start blogging about how wrong abortion is so do you have any advice?
Thank you for your interest in defending the lives of our prenatal children. I’m encouraged by your desire to take a stand for others. Your generation is known as Generation Z, or the iGeneration, and must fight against the ideology propagated by many of the members of Generation X (Gen X) and Generation Y (Millennials). Their ideology is founded on the belief that some lives matter less, something you clearly disagree with. In fact, their misguided belief that abortion is the great equalizer has killed one-fourth of your generation.
So how can the iGeneration, so named because your cohorts were born firmly rooted in the age of the internet, affect change?
Embrace Social Media. As you know, your generation, as well as Millennials, are practically one with their smartphones, having evolved into a quasicyborg. As a digital immigrant, I have leveraged this reality to reach the often unreachable. I use my blog as a launch point to seed various social media platforms, usually through automation. Use a hosting service such as WordPress for your blog. I started with Tumblr, but their staff is vehemently pro-abortion and my blog was eventually deleted, a clear sign that I was effective. Registering your own dot.com will prevent this from happening to you.
Leverage Technology. It’s becoming harder and harder to deny the humanity of prenatal human beings given the advancements in ultrasound imaging technology. The ubiquitous nature of smartphones with embedded cameras are providing a peek behind the curtain at abortion facilities. Seek out and share these images and videos far and wide. Don’t forget to tag everything you post with related, and sometimes unrelated, hashtags. This forces those who choose to ignore the reality of abortion to confront it. Yes, they will likely block you, but at least you seared the image in their mind.
Confront Evil. I show no mercy for mothers who have killed their children in the womb and use the story of their child’s death in an attempt to destigmatize abortion. This confuses both sides of the debate. The pro-life side, often squeamish about confrontation, especially with post-abortive mothers, will admonish you. The pro-abortion side will attempt to destroy you. They will throw everything they have at you to silence you because they know that their only hope is destigmatization. Once the majority of society accepts abortion as the equivalent of having a tooth pulled, all is lost. Don’t let that happen.
Love Them Both. Abortion advocates love to spread the myth that the pro-life community only cares about prenatal children, ignoring the plight of their mothers and turning their backs on these same children after their birthday. Nothing could be farther from the truth, but you will have to prove it to them. Use your blog to advocate for pregnant mothers struggling to make ends meet. Post links to resources they can take advantage of to provide for themselves and their children, inside and outside of the womb.
Be Unafraid. The internet is full of cute and innocuous memes supporting the pro-life view. These are quickly and widely shared, but they hide the reality of what abortion is and what it does to innocent prenatal children. Although you should occasionally share them to build followers, you must focus on shining the bright light of the unfiltered truth. Showing the results of abortion on the bodies of its victims is hard to stomach, but essential to ending its practice. To understand why this is critical, learn about Emmett Till.
Be Unashamed. You will be relentlessly attacked wherever and whenever you speak up for those scheduled to die today. Those who champion for the right to kill prenatal children are faced with the impossible task of defending the indefensible. When confronted by someone willing to hold a mirror up to their ideology, showing them who and what they have become, they invariably resort to ad hominems and censorship.
Be Unrelenting. This is a war, not a battle. Wars are won through a series of battles, some won, some lost. The key is resilience and persistence. It took hundreds of years to end the practice of slavery in the United States. All along the way there were abolitionists like us advocating for the rights of the enslaved. Eventually, their efforts built toward a crescendo, and its practice was ended. It’s my heartfelt belief that abortion will end within our lifetime — hopefully within mine, not yours. In other words, never give up!
I hope you understand how difficult this path is to walk, and I also hope you know how necessary it is. We’re not just fighting for each individual child, we’re fighting for our collective humanity and a better future for Generation Next.
