…turn back now.
If you’re not familiar with Abort73.com, you should definitely check them out. Granted, if you know me, you know I’m absolutely pro-life, but…this is a site well worth knowing. It’s extremely tasteful and informative, with pages on the biological, political, racial, financial, and theological implications of abortion. Pretty intersting stuff…
Regardless of where you may be on the life v. choice issue, it’s a great resource of information, and I’d love to get your thoughts on it.
The reason? I’m a pro-life guy who cares about more than just my local fetuses. I also care about the lives of the elderly. The homeless. The poor. The uneducated. What about the life of our planet as well…? Hmmm… To me those are all pro-life issues, albiet for another post. But Abort73 is one of the few pro-life sites that seems intelligent and respectful. It doesn’t seem confrontational and all finger-pointy like others I’ve run across. I don’t know that I would wear ANY pro-life t-shirt (because of the emotional issue abortion has become, slogans on shirts and bumper stickers really limit conversation…IMO), but I definitely like the stuff on their site (see pic below). I think they are making strides to open up the conversation past the typical "Oh, you’re one of those…"
Whether you’re pro-life or pro-choice, I’d like to hear some ideas about how to develop the conversation between the camps. How can we talk rationally? Respectfully? Has the church gone overboard with the issue? Have they not gone far enough? What about addressing issues that the poor and impoverished face? Doesn’t that ripple into abortion statistics as well?
Granted, I’m no expert. Just someone with a lot of questions who’s concerned about life.
