Prolifers March On

Posted by MDViews on December 18, 2008

I was reading the web site of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) and was struck by the two editorials by Dave Andrusko in the latest issue of National Right to Life News. The first, What the 2008 Election Taught Us and the second, “Thank You, President Bush”, inspire and teach both.

In his first article, if I may summarize, he makes several important points.

First, we are in this for the duration no matter who is president. God calls us to be faithful, not successful. Second, the prolife movement is both idealistic and practical. We want all human life respected and protected, but work hard in the real world. Third, the public will be told our movement is now dead, unneeded and irrelevant, but our movement will never die. We will always keep the moral lamp lit. Fourth, although there is pride in many circles because the US elected its first black president, he is still ardently proabortion and that is horrible blot on his record. Fifth, the election introduced us to Sarah Palin, a prolife woman of steel who gave birth, knowingly, to a baby with Down syndrome, an act totally repugnant to the proabortion crowd.

Well said, Dave.

Then he summarizes the prolife gains made under President Bush including no federal funds for embryonic stem cell research and the passage and Supreme Court affirmation of the ban on Partial Birth abortion. He thanks President Bush for his consistent stand for life, as do I.

So on we go. Know the arguments for life, folks. Speak out in the marketplace, workplace, facebook, blogs, church, sports events. Don’t let proabortion drivel go unchallenged. If need be, buy Randy Alcorn’s book, Prolife Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments. Be informed, be energized. Mostly, be faithful and bring glory to Him.
