The lead story in this week’s BRweekly
covers some unfortunate developments
related to abortion
in multiple states. Pro-choice advocates can see the recent legislative and judicial advances made by pro-life efforts, and they are fighting back. But we have hope, even as we lament the bad news.
We can celebrate that the pro-life cause is
advancing, and we should expect opposition from pro-choice advocates as policies that protect preborn children multiply across the nation.
Some state and federal legislators on the left are pushing for unrestricted access to abortion, an unconscionable position that would have been unthinkable to many Americans in decades past. Although we celebrate each and every pro-life advance, we cannot slow down. Now, more than ever, is the time to advocate for preborn children made in the image of God.
In April, I moderated a panel discussion
on common myths associated with pro-life advocacy and abortion. One of the questions I posed to panelists addressed a misconception that pro-life efforts would come to an end if the Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade
decision were overturned. I’ll leave you with the encouraging and challenging answer offered by Dan Darling
, vice president of communications for the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission:
“If Roe v. Wade
were overturned tomorrow, that’s not the end of the pro-life movement, it’s the beginning.”
The fight “goes back to the states,” Darling said. “What you’re seeing right now is actually an acknowledgement by both sides that there’s a chance it could happen with a more conservative leaning court.”
Praise God that we inch ever closer toward the opportunity to undo such an immoral decision. And may the Lord give wisdom, courage and strength to all those who use their voice for the voiceless.
