Abortion battles

January 23, 2003

In the midst of the renewed abortion battles, I have to wonder: The pro-choicers political message is that pro-lifers are against women. What if they’re right? When was the last time pro-lifers were viewed as compassionate and caring towards women who are obviously in situations of turmoil and crisis? (Crisis pregnancy centers are the obvious exception.)

And I’m sorry, voting Republican doesn’t seem to change anything. To cast a vote for someone who is “pro-life,” why do I end up voting for someone who is pro-gun, pro-war, or pro-death penalty?

So what is the third way? Maybe it’s to drop the posturing, humble ourselves, and offer free drinks to pro-choice demonstrators in the name of Jesus.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
