My top 5 list for why I am pro-life

I am a big believer in lists. They can help you get to the heart of the matter and prioritize your day. So, in recognition of the power of lists, here’s my top 5 list for why I am pro-life:

1.      The unborn child deserves protection from the violence of abortion.

I was raised to fight for “the little guy,” and there is none so little than the child in his mother’s womb.

2.      Women deserve to be free from the tragedy of abortion.

Abortion leaves a woman to grieve the loss of a child, killed in an act of brutality. While there are hope and healing available to women following an abortion, they should not have to shoulder such pain.

3.      Pro-life is pro-love.

I have seen, time and time again, an outpouring of love from advocates for life. They demonstrate their love for mothers, for fathers, and for babies with each act of kindness they complete.

4.      Assisted suicide is a corruption of the medical profession.

Doctors are trained to heal, not to harm. When doctors prescribe lethal doses of drugs, it represents a profound act of hopelessness which coarsens our culture.

5.      Pro-life is pro-joy.

I have witnessed the joy of a mother following the birth of her beloved child. It is a beautiful sight to behold, and it is worth fighting for!

I encourage you to come up with your own top five list of why you are pro-life and share it with your friends and family members. You never know who you might influence with your words!
