This Saturday is the anniversary for Roe v. Wade.
Mrs. RWC & I believe the end to abortion will come through changing the hearts of people. Both the founder of NARAL and Roe (yes, the Roe) are now pro-life advocates. We also believe that more/better/improved birth control or education isn't going to eliminate abortions.
If you believe life begins at conception, you need to be very careful about the choices you make in this area. All hormonal forms of birth control (pills, shots, implants) cause early abortions as a secondary function and there is really no way for someone using them to know which function is preventing a pregnancy at any given time. This information played a big part in our decision to being open to having more children. We also feel strongly that part of the reason we "need" abortion is because of the changes contraception has brought to our society. Watch this short video.
Even though real change will only come through transformed hearts and minds, that doesn't mean we should wait passively for it to come.
I hope you will consider joining us for the Green Bay March for Life at Baird Park (corner of Mason and Webster) this Saturday, January 22 from 6:30pm-7:30pm. This event goes on no matter the weather, so dress appropriately. Feel free to bring a sign and a flashlight or candle to carry. If you don't live in the Green Bay area I'm sure a quick internet search will turn up a march in your area. If you can't make it to a march, please take a few minutes on Saturday to pray for an end to abortion.
Thanks to my lovely wife for her work on this post.
