I am pro-life. I don’t see how you could take the Scripture seriously and not be pro-life in some way. I’m not talking about a political position, although there are certainly political ramifications to being pro-life (duh). But, I don’t like the stalemate that we are in as a culture on this issue. I really don’t like the anger I see flying around this issue, especially when it comes from people who are invoking Jesus & the Bible.
That’s why I like the work of LIFE PERSPECITIVES. Think of them as an upstream organization. Instead of focusing on legislation & making abortion illegal, they are focusing on education, helping build the ground work for people to make like affirming choices – making abortion unthinkable. I’ve blogged before about their national campaign called Abortion Changes You. They also have a curriculum called “Whole Life Curriculum” getting at the root of the issue, at a worldview level. (My wife Linda is the author of WLC). They speak, write, educate.
Check out the great websites: Abortion Changes You (here) and Whole Life Curriculum (here).
We at Journey partner with and support them.
We also get involved in their main fundraiser called the LIFE WALK (click here). Thanks to a several Journey peeps who help me out, I’ve become one of the top fundraiser / walker dudes. I don’t intend to loosen my grip on this position. So help me out. Support me! Better yet, walk yourself. It’s fun. It’s inspiring. It will make a difference.
