I was recently challenged by a friend about what it really means to be “pro-life.” What he said really got to me, and I’ve been thinking about it for quite a while. “Many people who claim to be pro-life simply are anti-abortion. They only care about life to the point of birth. Once a person is born they don’t really care.”
Thinking about this, has challenged the way I think about everything from abortion, to capital punishment, immigration, health care and human rights on all fronts. I am not going to get into how this has changed my point of view or where I am many of these things, I would just challenge you to think about what you believe and why you believe it.
Where do you lie on some of these issues, and why? I’m interested in your thoughts.
