Roe v Wade at 47. How did we get here? What Can We Do?

It should come as no surprise to many pro-lifers that Roe v Wade is in its 47th year. The question we must ask ourselves is “How did we allow this barbaric decision to make it this far?”

I can give you a myriad of answers, but sadly churches and people of goodwill have been silent. No more. No more apathy. No more silence. It is time to make noise not only from the pulpit but also in the public square.

Yes, there are risks if we cast ourselves out into the deep. However, we have a job that is bigger than ourselves. Far too often I have seen people who have their thinking clouded by radical liberals in the classrooms and college lecture halls. Our job is to be bold in our claim of being pro-life. We cannot stand by and hope people have a change of heart. We need to instruct people where their argument is wrong with love and mercy.

Love and mercy can win over those who have been poorly educated on abortion. It is what we have on our side when it comes to tools for victory and evangelizing to those who live in darkness. That is how we win the debate. Members of Congress or the state office will not help us win. Sure, they may campaign on promises, yet we have seen many not showing a backbone when it comes to defunding Planned Parenthood or even preventing radical abortion laws from ever being law. Abby Johnson reminds us that this debate will be won outside of abortion facilities, college campuses, and even our own homes.

47 years of Roe v Wade has brought nothing but sorrow, agony, and emptiness to our country. I believe that our country is in need of an awakening. I believe a spiritual revival is happening all across the land. Our job has not been an easy one. The abortion lobby may have money, but pro-lifers don’t need a full bank account to combat the diabolic industry. Rather, we have an arsenal of people who are using their talents for something bigger than you and me. These 47 years have only brought a shift in the nation’s attitude on abortion. A majority of America is now pro-life, many of them are young (1/3 of my peers are missing because of his heinous, cold, calculous decision). We have God who has guided many to win many victories for the cause from cradle pro-lifers to former abortion workers.

The question remains: Are you willing to stop another million Americans from being murder due to a false agenda? 61 million Americans, black, white, Latino, Asian, and even mixed were silenced to help women get ahead in life like Michelle Williams and other celebrities. We must be pro-active and step out of our comfort zones. We may think that conveying the message on a digital medium can win everybody. However, as many apologists prove, your “presence” will make a difference to others.

Are you ready to step up to the plate and out of your digital comfort zone?
