From time to time, I come across this picture of a nun chastising pro-lifers for only be ‘pro-birth’. I’m not sure if this nun is real or if she actually said what is on the meme; however, I’d like to respond.
Yes, Sister, pro-life people are pro-birth, but we are so much more! Have you ever visited a Pregnancy Help Center or one of the many Maternity Homes across the country for women who are looking for help with a crisis pregnancy? Guess who opened and maintain these places? That’s right, the very ‘pro-birth’ people who stand outside of abortion chambers praying and offering help who you criticize. And you’d be surprised at all the programs set up for these women to help them through their pregnancies, again provided and funded by pro-life warriors.
I’m sure if you called one of these places, Sister, they’d be glad to give you a tour. And maybe the next time I see a meme of you, you’ll be singing the praises of the very people you vilified.
