To Be Pro Life (Updated)

To be pro-life is to be pro-life and against murder whatever the age of the victim. To be pro-life is to deeply regret and to sorrow for the murder of Dr. Tiller. Many pro-life people spontaneously began praying for Tiller and for his family the moment they heard the news. Within hours every major pro-life organization spoke out vehemently against the murder, no matter who did it or why the man was murdered.

Even as they crafted their messages of concern and outrage at the crime, the media began assuming that it was done by a right wing pro-life terrorist. Comments on Internet sites immediately began appearing about the hypocrisy of people in the pro-life movement and the timeliness of the recent DHS report. This despite the fact that he is more an anti-government than anti-abortion extremist.

To be pro-life is to believe in prayer. This is the time for all Christians to earnestly pray and fast for our country. Pray for Truth to be revealed to the public about the murder, about abortion, and about the real pro-life message: "The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly." John 10:10
