The Pro-Life Argument: A Voice For The Voiceless

A person is a person, no matter how small.

The Pro-Life Argument: A Voice For The Voiceless

Just recently, our nation accepted Donald Trump as its president for the next four years. The reactions to that have been at both extremes; regardless, he is still our president. Not only have people celebrated the newly inaugurated POTUS, but they have also protested.

Specifically, women.

I'm sure you all know where I'm headed with this, and I am typically all in favor of women's rights. There is just one in particular that I cannot come to grips with– abortion.

A couple of weekends ago women from cities all across the United States marched and protested for specific rights, most of which were directed towards abortion and the laws against it. All women were encouraged to attend, unless you were Pro-LIfe.

So many people argue that no one is actually Pro-Life, but only "pro-birth." By saying this, they mean that people quit caring what happens to babies after their born. Sure, there are people who have hardened hearts and do not care too much about the well-being of others, but I know for a fact that I, and many others like me, are in fact Pro-Life.

It may just be me, but I feel like being Pro-Life begins the moment a baby is conceived until natural death.

I know that God has a plan for all of us, and we do not have the right to say who gets to live and who gets to die. In my heart, I know that there is only one person in this world who can make that decision for us.

I believe that all life is a gift and should be treasured. I believe that there is one passage of scripture that sums up what makes life so precious...

Psalm 139:13-16 says, "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be."

God has a perfect plan for each and every one of us, including the babies who didn't get the chance to fulfill their purpose. I pray that one day abortion will no longer be an option. I pray that we begin to call abortion what it really is because there is no sugar-coating it.

While that may not seem like much of a reality right now, I'll continue to use the voice that I have in hopes that it may make a difference.

I will speak for the unborn.
I will speak for the unwanted.
I will speak for the unplanned.
I will speak for the voiceless.

I pray that you will do the same.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
