ProLife – All Lives!


                While reading an article about a recent pro-life gathering in downtown Birmingham I was again accosted by one of the biggest lies about pro-lifers that is espoused by the pro-abortion community. Someone commented (and many others agreed) him: “pro-lifers only care about babies in the womb and don’t care about them after they are born.”  I have heard that so often, and it is one of the things that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.  Here is what I messaged that person and those that agreed with him:


                “Where do you get your information?  Who tells you that? You are either willfully spreading a lie or are seriously misinformed by someone.  The fact of the matter is that I monetarily support, through our church and other means, The Alabama Baptist Children’s Home and Family Ministry that provides both temporary and permanent homes across the state for children in distress.  They provide foster care in families all over Alabama. They provide licensed and professional counseling to children and to families. The gifts we give them are above and in addition to our taxes.


                We support physically and monetarily the Green Spring Ministry in Birmingham.  That Christian ministry provides food for any and all that are hungry.  We monetarily and physically support the Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief Teams that have boots on the ground proving food and needed relief to areas affected by tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and other natural disasters…often before the government can get their act together.  This is above and in addition to our taxes.


                Our own church has a benevolence fund and as we help families, one of our primary concerns is the children affected by whatever the need is.  We help families without concern for race, religious background, or sexual orientation…we don’t ask because we care about the children involved.  This is above and in addition to our taxes.


                In addition to those I and our church support, there are countless other ministries supported by pro-lifers such as The Jimmy Hale Mission, the Bethany House, Firehouse Ministries, the Boys and Girls Ranches…and we cannot overlook The Salvation Army. Many, many, churches also have food closets and clothing ministries.


                So I want to challenge those of you who keep spreading the lie that we pro-lifers don’t care about children after they are born, in addition to your taxes what organizations and ministries do you monetarily support that help children after they are born?”



                Would you believe that not one person responded? Not one person highlighted anything they had personally done.  Not a single person took up the challenge.  If there is a heart that is hardened against children after they are born it does not beat in the body of those of us that celebrate and protect life in the womb. Don’t let people get away with spreading such lies.  Share the truth with them.


Say good things about your savior and your church!
