So how do I reconcile being a prolife Christian with supporting a pro-choice Democrat?
I’m not going to cop out with a “pay grade” excuse. I believe life begins at conception, but I stand that we can do a lot more to save the unborn by being involved at a personal and community level rather than demanding that the judiciary tell more women “No.” Have you supported an orphanage or adoption ministry lately? A pro-life pregnancy crisis center? If you have, good, keep it up. That, and conversing with scared, pregnant friends in a loving manner, does a lot more than standing in front of the Supreme Court with red “LIFE” tape on your mouth.*
Need an adoption ministry and orphanage to support? I recommend Home For Good Foundation. For a pregnancy crisis center, Gateway in New Jersey needs help. That’s how I make up for voting Obama. Don’t judge, don’t hate; love, do and give.
* You know what? The first time I saw kids standing in front of the Supreme Court with red LIFE tape on their mouths, I thought it was a pro-choice protest, with the idea being that the “life” movement was stifling rights to free speech or something. Turns out it’s supposed to symbolize how the unborn cannot speak for themselves. Unclear metaphor.
