Have you ever known someone who offered a ray of sunshine on the stormiest days? An individual who could help you see a path forward as dark clouds of despair seemed to swirl around you? A person who lit up the way with an optimism that you had forgotten amidst your troubles?
It’s been my experience that every pro-lifer is that uplifting individual—the one who brings the light of hope into the lives of pregnant women facing uncertainty…older people facing loneliness…and people with disabilities facing discrimination.
And these incredible qualities are what set the pro-life movement apart.
While for some it would be far too easy to give in to what’s been described as our “culture of death,” pro-lifers just keep on going. This explains how the movement is stronger and more vibrant than ever today, thanks in no small part to the infusion of young people.
When the U.S. Supreme Court issued its tragic ruling known as Roe v. Wade, it might have seemed as if the abortion lobby had had the last word. That was certainly the message from the media! But it did not. Pro-lifers would not allow that.
