We’ve been through a lot in the United States of America. As a country, I am thankful that we have been so successful in fighting many of the different evils that we have been guilty of over the years.
We put slavery to rest in the 1800s. Nowadays, neither the government nor your average citizen sympathizes with holding people captive as slaves, which is a massive victory that we should celebrate.
While it’s unfortunate that racism is still a part of society, we have to admit that we have made tremendous progress in fighting it. Indeed, segregation laws were put to rest decades ago, and now much of the hostility between people of different skin colors has melted away.
Women have had their voting rights recognized by the government and are allowed to make of their lives as they please.
Workers are getting the rights and safety precautions they need while performing labor.
We have accomplished a lot and have done away with much evil. However, we’re not finished yet.
We are on the brink of yet another fight against evil that will change the United States forever. It is something so momentous that we dare not miss it. For the first time in decades, the 1973 decision concerning Roe v. Wade will be overturned, and that, I believe, is worth our attention.
Let’s not think that this will mean the end of abortion. Not at all. Abortion will still be present after Roe v. Wade. However, it will be less common, as it is likely that twenty-six states will ban abortion altogether.
I guarantee you that once this Supreme Court decision is made, the debate will flare up like never before. This is our chance to defend human life. I want to issue a challenge to all who are pro-life: Get ready.
Get ready to defend human life in the womb. Educate yourself and train yourself to be able to respond to those who defend abortion. Consult the best resources. Together, I believe we can make this the beginning of a new fight against infanticide (abortion) and accomplish things we never have before.
I believe that together, we put abortion in the same category as women’s inability to vote and slavery. Meaning that it will be in the past. Every abortion that happens will be in the minority, but the government and most citizens will see it as the horrible thing that it really is.
If you want some resources to help prepare you to talk with pro-choice advocates, here is a good place to start:
