Women Deserve Better

Many are speaking this week about the impact of Roe vs. Wade, a decision that was made 41 years ago. Where should we start? I suggest that we first start by remembering to look at this issue, as not simply an “issue,” rather, the people who are affected.

This leads me to start with the basic question of abortion.

Is abortion every woman’s right? A fundamental freedom? Or a reflection that we have not met the needs of women? 

“When a man steals to satisfy hunger, we may safely conclude that there is something wrong in society– so when a woman destroys the life of her unborn child, it is an evidence that either by education or circumstances she has been greatly wronged.” – Mattie Brinkerhoff, The Revolution, 1860

Women deserve better. We need first to try and understand that in many cases, abortion is a symptom of, not a solution to, the continuing struggles women face- abandonment, objectification, violence in the home, and in the world at large.

In addition to considering the women, we must also consider the child- yes, it is a child- she carries. There are many of us that are trying to provide solutions for these serious problems women face who believe they have “no choice.” There are amazing crisis pregnancy groups that seek to bring hope and healing to mothers and their babies. We need to continue to support these important resources.

We need to continue to do more. “What else can we do to move toward a better, more humane and just future?”  Eric Metaxas shares how we can look to William Wilberforce’s fight against the broken culture of his day to inform our efforts to speak and show our neighbors the realities of abortion, because, in reality, as much as abortion is talked about, often people do not know the facts.

Like Eric Metaxas said,”…we need to tell them, for example, that the U.S. and Canada stand with only China and North Korea as having the most liberal abortion policies in the world. We’ve got to tell them that pro-lifers have been fighting to restrict abortions to twenty weeks in Texas and Arizona while all over Europe abortions are restricted to twelve weeks—the standard in civilized Western nations.”

We aim to educate, empower, and comfort. We aim to change this “throw away culture” as we seek wisdom on how to address this issue, as we strive to do our part in coming a long side those in need, and as we speak up for those who cannot.

The decision of Roe vs. Wade has never been more vulnerable to being overturned, according to Clark Forsythe, a pro-life legal expert, which means now is the time to enter the conversation. This is an issue that must be addressed with compassion for those who have been hurt. This is not about empowering women through abortion, this is about coming along side those women and their children and helping meet their needs-  being the hands and feet of Jesus. This is about changing our culture, one person at a time.

    I am seeking some advice for my teenage daughter.
    She attends public school in Tulsa. One of her classes, “Theory of Knowledge”, meets weekly before the regular school day. It is most often a student led discussion, moderated by the instructor. Generally, students prepare ahead for the presentation each would be making. It is usually a team effort. Our daughter and her close friend are the only two solid conservatives. Most of the other students tend toward liberalism, and the teacher admits to liberal bias. “A” & “Z” hold their own pretty well. However, the teacher announced the topic in two weeks will be Abortion. And she added that generally she takes the position of neutral moderator, but for this topic she will be a putting forth a liberal bias. I’m not sure she will consider herself a moderator or presenter. Well, for-warned is fore armed. In addition to our prayers, how can “A” & “Z” be best prepared to present factually and logically a Pro-life topic that is such a hot-button and emotional issue?

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be really something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will
    try to get the hang of it!
