Dear Pro-lifers

Years ago, I shared a post on facebook about animal cruelty. The response from my pastor’s mother was, “why are there all these posts about animals when no ones says anything about the unborn?”

My response was to question why we can’t be concerned with both issues. You can be against animal cruelty and for the rights of the unborn at the same time. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.

Recently, someone responded to my black lives argument with, “what about all the unborn black babies murdered every year?” Again, I can be against black men being needlessly killed and be for unborn black babies.

Some pro-lifers place more value on the unborn then on the alive. If you’re truly pro-life than all lives matter. A true pro-lifer won’t justify why black men are brutalized and murdered by the police. Even if the black man is a cop-hating criminal he doesn’t deserve to be judged, sentenced and put to death by a racist cop.

Pro-life means taking a stand for all lives. Black, white, and brown. If you are passionate about saving lives that have no voice then your passion should extend to other voiceless lives.

  1. Good post, Jane. Everyone has an opinion, and everyone should but I have a problem with those trying to convince me that my opinion is wrong. No, it’s not. It’s my opinion. Thank you for wanting to protect the animals and the humans.

  2. I agree, Lois. What I find shocking is that there are many christians who are also pro-lifers that support Trump and hold strong racist views.
    On an unrelated note,I love my ragtag community. I feel an acceptance here that I don’t always feel on facebook.

  3. I could accept the Pro Life passion for the unborn if they extended that to the living.

    Like, when people test me and I’m about to get snippy I think- Anita, would you talk to you granddaughter like that? Your dog? Then watch it Sister.
    And I do.

    • I agree wholeheartedly! I love this quote from Sister Joan Chittister.

      “I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”
