Pro-Life People Care for Women and Children After Birth, Too

Posted By on February 1, 2011

One of the most frequently repeated truisms of the abortion debate is that pro-lifers really don’t care about life. As much as they talk about protecting the unborn, we are told, pro-lifers do nothing to support mothers and infants who are already in the world.

Liberal writers such as Matthew Yglesias are given to observing that pro-lifers believe that “life begins at conception and ends at birth.” At Commonweal, David Gibson, a journalist who frequently covers the abortion debate, asks how much pro-lifers do for mothers: “I just want to know what realistic steps they are proposing or backing. I’m not sure I’d expect to hear anything from pro-life groups now since there’s really been nothing for years.”

This lazy slander is as common as it is untrue.

    Good article, it’s nice to see some backing to pro-life being more than just for the unborn.

    However, I would like to see pro-lifers support life of all ages and sexes in regards to the U.S. government invading foreign countries. Generally speaking, on one hand they support pro-life in the womb and on the other hand they support pro-death in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    It’s about time we quit being so obviously hypocritical.

    Can you imagine how much the “Christian” nation of the U.S. could do for the cause of Christ if it took all the money spent on invading nations and killing innocent people (men, women, children, and unborn) and instead lovingly evangelized them with the Good News of Jesus Christ?

  2. I completely agree. Unjust wars are utterly unbiblical and hypocritical. The world will not be righted by “democracy” but by the love of Christ demonstrated through the hands and feet of Christians. Thanks for your comment.
