The Pro-Life Day that Doesn't Exist

It's that time of the year again...the day we pro-lifers let our imagination run  free. Today is the imaginary day we protest something that's happened 50 million + times since Roe vs. Wade...something so ugly they've started calling it "family planning" in an effort to make it more appealing. It is a movement so steeped in eugenics, racism, and lies...that they've resorted to calling it "choice."

Today is the day where the rest of the world assures us that no deaths result from abortion. Today is the day where the rest of the world assures us that we are all just a clump of cells that somehow became viable as soon as we were out of the womb. Today is the day where the rest of the world assures us that legal abortion poses no risk to a pregnant mother. Today is the day where the world tries to tell us that abortion clinics are just as clean and safe as the local hospital. Today is the day where they try to tell us that NPs, midwives, etc. have just as much schooling and training at surgical procedures as a typical med-school educated surgeon. Today is the day where the world attempts to convince us that there are no complications associated with abortion. Today is the day where the world attempts to tell us that we don't need parental consent for abortions even if we need it for other surgeries. Today is the day where the world tells us that it is okay to abort children just because we cannot be burdened by their Downs Syndrome. Today is the day where they try to tell us that some children are mere inconveniences that stand in the way of a career. Today is the day where they try to tell us that abortion is NOT an industry fueled by profit and the exploitation of minorities. Today is the day where the world tells us that PP's founder was not a fan of eugenics.

Today is the day where the media remains silent instead of facing the facts. Today is the day where inconvenient truths are swept under the rug in favor of the latest celebrity scandal.

It's the day where we pretend that there are a bunch of people in DC, marching and being a voice for the unborn in danger of abortion. It's the day where we pretend to be unsatisfied by the laws of the land, the laws that not only allow...but condone...and even encourage death.

Today is a day that is completely ignored by the media....

Well, I say, ignore the media.

Saint Gianna Berretta Molla,
 a woman who knew
what it means to sacrifice all
for the love of a child, pray for us.
Today is the day where countless people take buses and trains to DC. Today is the day where we inform the world that we are tired of the lies and the murder. Today is the day where we "like" our friends' pro-life statuses. Today is the day where we offer hope and encouragement for mothers who still regret their abortions. Today is the day where we offer our support to the growing pro-life movement. Today is the day where young women and men choose to say NO to a law that resulted in the death of a vast percentage of their generation. Today is the day where we stand up for those without a voice. Today is the day where we spread the knowledge we have acquired and defend our pro-life stance. Today is the day where we decide to ignore this idea that only some pregnancies are worthy of coming to term. Today is the day where we tell the world NO when it comes to killing children just because they are girls...just because they are boys...just because they will be born with a disability...just because they were an inconvenience. Today is the day where we offer scared young women another option besides death. Today is the day we stand together and tell our nation that we will not remain silent.

Today is the day where we piss off a bunch of our "pro-choice" friends in favor of defending the truth. Today is the day where we refuse moral relativism. Today is the day where we refuse to be ignored. Today is the day where we stand beside those that are too young to have a voice. Today is the day where we tell the world that every child, regardless of age and development stage...is FAR MORE than a bunch of cells. Today is the day where we face our fears of rejection and our fears of offending others...in order to defend the unborn.

The media may ignore us. The world may try to convince us to stop standing up for the children out there that have yet to be born. They may try to liken you to abortion clinic bombers. They may try to put you in a box labeled "fool", "misogynist," "cruel," "anti-choice," "anti-woman." They may try to put up clever responses to your pro-life statuses. They may bombard you with images of "liberation" and hangers. They may even resort to defriending you on Facebook...or getting into a fight with you.

Let them say what they will. Let them hate you. Let them be angry. Let them think as lowly of you as they wish to think.

Whenever they try to get you down...remember that you too were once the product of a "choice." Remember that you too were once a "clump of cells." Remember that you made it.

Against all odds...
You made it even with the health problems or disabilities you may now have.
You made it even though the doctors told your parents that you would never make it.
You made it even though your parents had to give up a career or an education.
You made it even though you were born out of wedlock.
You made it even though you were born into a financially unstable family.
You made it even though you once had no voice.
You made it even though your mother was a single woman leaving an abusive relationship.
You made it even though you were unintended.

Thank you Mommy, for choosing life...
...and for always putting us first.
At some point in her pregnancy, your mother found the courage to carry you to term. At some point, she loved you so much that she wanted to share a life with you. At some point, she loved you enough to put you up for adoption because she knew she did not have the means to support a child. At some point, someone thought you were more than a clump of cells. At some point, someone thought it was worth the struggle, the pain, the risk...

If it comes to nasty comments, fights, and angry reactions to your pro-life stance... remember that you are defending someone. You are defending countless children that have yet to breathe their first breath...smile their first smile...laugh their first laugh.

Being pro-life isn't the most popular thing for me to be...but, like a knight who refuses to abandon the citadel they're defending, I continue to fight for the defenseless. I continue to fight for the innocent children in peril of losing their lives. I continue to fight for the lives that can and should be saved....and I will continue to do so.

Don't just pray for life and the unborn....FIGHT FOR THEM.

LIFE: From conception to natural death. No exceptions.

Pax Vobiscum
