As advocates for life, we are ambassadors for the truth

Recently I received an e-vite to a fabulous event. It was a festive celebration, made all the more so by the longing for community that came from the COVID-19 pandemic. It was truly a gift to be able to get together to share a meal, some laughter, and some reflection on old times.

But for me the highlight was a spontaneous play produced by the youngest guests. The actors enthusiastically assumed their roles for an impromptu performance of “Little Red Riding Hood.” To see the joy on one little boy’s face as he portrayed the big, bad wolf was really a sight to behold.

The fact is, those children were the life of the party. They brought unmatched happiness to the proceedings, bringing smiles to the faces of the rest of the party guests. They approached life with an exuberance that was really infectious.

Consider this your e-vite to become even more involved in the pro-life movement. We have so many precious souls we need to protect—so many mothers who are in need of help and encouragement. When we stand for life, we stand for the happiness that comes with bringing these unique and unrepeatable children into the world.

A myth persists that, if only the U.S. Supreme Court will rule the right way, our decades-long national nightmare of widespread abortion will end. While an overturn of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade is a critical first step, chances are likely that the issue of abortion will catapult back to the states. There, we will need to enact laws which protect the rights of the most vulnerable among us—preborn children.

As advocates for life, we are ambassadors for the truth. We recognize the humanity of the preborn child and we share that truth with all who are willing to listen. We also stand for beauty, for there is nothing so beautiful as a child. Ugliness occurs when society treats the child as less than human, turning to the violent act of abortion to end the child’s life.

So please join me in redoubling our efforts to extend a mantle of protection to preborn babies and their mothers. Working together, we can renew and refresh our culture, making it one that celebrates and reveres life in all its phases and at all its stages.
