Sanctity of Life


Dr. Gushee was the first seminary professor I heard when I visited Southern Seminary long, long ago, seeking the Lord’s will for my call to the ministry.  Though I haven’t always agreed with him since, I have often been encouraged by his writing.  He has a good article here which mentions, among other things, the responsibility we have to show concern for all human life, including the women who contemplate or have had abortions.  From the article,

 

For those of us who believe that decision was wrong, we still face the task of showing not just that Roe opened the door to the mass destruction of developing human lives in utero, and that this assaults life’s sanctity. We must also show why Roe does not succeed in advancing the sanctity of women’s lives, and must offer both on-the-ground and legal alternatives that can do better.

 

You can read the entire article here.  You may also want to visit a website that demonstrates a deep concern for the “others” involved in an abortion.  “Abortion Changes You has started a PR campaign against abortion by showing concern for all of the victims.
