It’s common knowledge that women’s bodies were created in the most unique way that allows us to develop another human being within us. While many women cling to the hope of having children, there are others who don't have maternal instinct or who simply don't want to be a mom oftentimes due to a lack of nurturing from their own mother, life circumstances that instill fear, and concerns about whether or not they would be a good mother. Perhaps the reason is simply because the world we live in has become so scary that it's hard to imagine bringing a child into the situations we face today.
We believe it's important to state that being pro-life doesn't mean every woman should keep her baby in her care in spite of all circumstances. We believe that women were made to actualize the birth of their child which is the most healthy option whether the pregnancy is planned or unexpected. The birth of a child is a momentous occasion not only for women who give birth, but also for people who are unable to have children of their own or who just want to provide a loving and caring home for another child. There are so many people wanting and waiting to adopt a baby that abortion never needs to enter the conversation. Instead of presenting a pregnancy as a choice, instead of describing an unborn child as a choice, we can change the narrative and we can change the approach of how we speak to and about young women facing an unplanned pregnancy. We can encourage them that they are able to see the pregnancy through to birth and someone else can come in and take over if she doesn't feel equipped. Nine months of developing a life inside the womb is a small sacrifice for a woman to make if it means she can avoid a lifetime of trauma from the act of aborting her child. If we change the narrative we can prevent 60 years of trauma and emotional torture for millions of women in America.
There's so much focus in our current climate about equality, diversity, acceptance, kindness, love, and all of those positive movements seem to leave out the one most innocent group of people who can't ask for kindness, love, and acceptance. They are the only human beings that have done nothing wrong and yet they face the ultimate scrutiny and punishment for an act they didn’t participate in.
Let's stop seeing the unwanted unborn as a problem, as a burden, as a choice. The unwanted unborn is our responsibility. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes that same village to save the child and give it life. If we only sit back and complain from our couches, or argue with family over our pro-life stance but we never take action to save even one life, then we lose the right to complain, we lose the right to argue.
None of us can afford to be idle in the fight to save unwanted, unborn children. Will you make a commitment today to do something? Whether you help change the narrative, volunteer, provide a donation, or pray without ceasing, every child that has yet to see the light of day needs you. We need a collective maternal instinct to protect and love the unborn and the women who carry them.
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.” - Isaiah 49:15
Help us preserve the sanctity of life by becoming a Loving Life Partner.
