I have been meaning to post about this in the last few days, but have not had the chance yet, because I wanted to give this some thought.
But simply I can understand the anger and frustration that such people have when they attack abortion clinics but it goes without saying that they are doing no help to the pro-life cause at all, and for those who claim that what they are doing is out of their Christian faith ought to probably have a re-read of the Bible.
As some of you know, I am a pro-lifer myself (I just couldn't be anything else for the simple reason that I regard a foetus as a growing and living potential for human life!Although in some exceptional cases I would agree to abortions), but I am also keenly aware of the difficulties and distress many women suffer (to the point of their mental health, of not physical being affected) that leads them to taking these decisions. What I think many pro-life and pro-choice people can agree on (those who take a moderate tone that is) is that they need as much love and consideration and support as possible. Accusing teachers of child abuse simply for promoting sex education (when many fourteen and fifteen year olds have rampaging hormones and need a lot of help and support), and send hate mail to doctors is not helpful in the least and not something (for those who claim to be motivated by faith) that I imagine Jesus would do! The most violent thing he ever did in the gospels was to drive out the money lenders in the Temple and there was a specific reason for that!
So yeah, this is a difficult time to be a pro-lifer, and I would strongly urge anyone who shares my views to not only consider the unborn child and his/her rights and the vulnerable state he/she is in, but also the considerations of the unborn mother and what she is going through. Believe it or not, not all women want an abortion because they see being pregnant as inconvenient. In fact I suspect those women are in a minority.
