Did you know that Steve Jobs was adopted? That was a bit of trivia Larry and I picked up at the March for Life 2017 Expo and Rally last week as an example of how one life matters. Think about how often we use our iPhones. The world is glad his birth mother chose adoption instead of abortion.
Here are a few photos I captured with my iPhone. I wish I had taken more of the people I met and of the smiling youth. Their enthusiasm was contagious.
Larry and I manned a book table and met people who’d traveled from all over our great country. They drove, flew, and rode on buses. Many slept on floors and air mattresses to support the life of the unborn and women.
I learned well over half of the women who have abortions say they were coerced to abort the babies they wanted to keep. One woman shed tears when she told me about the abortion she had three decades ago. Even though she has a wonderful family now, and even though she knows God has forgiven her, she still grieves.
Science is finally catching up with the Bible in showing the life in a pregnant woman is a separate person with the ability to feel pain and recognize voices. I saw a beautiful young woman who miraculously survived the abortion her birth mother had when she was pregnant with her.
John the Baptist leaped in his mother’s womb for joy when he heard Mary’s voice (Luke 1:44). Jacob and Esau struggled with each other in Rebekah’s womb (Gen. 25:21-23). God still has a purpose for each child just as He did for Jeremiah (Jer. 1:5). Click To Tweet
Susan B. Anthony, heralded by feminists for working to give women the right to vote, saw abortion as the ultimate exploitation of women. Being pro-life is being pro-woman.
One of the chants from the weekend was “We are the pro-life generation!” How encouraging to see a new generation of young people who want to protect mother and child and see the rights of the unborn as a social justice issue.
