Here is a good read about one young Christian woman’s journey into and out of the “Pro-Life” movement. With all the crap going on in some Red states nowadays (Texas, Ohio, and North Carolina), this article is very relevant.

I’m not going to say much about it, because she does a great job of telling her story and pointing out the inherent self contradictions of the movement. I have not been a fan for many years of Pro-Life techniques and tactics. Since leaving the Church, I see little to no value in what they are doing.

Keep in mind, there is a huge difference between opposing abortion and being “Pro-Life”. In many ways, the two are not even related because of how the Pro-Life movement interacts with the political landscape.

Like most Progressives, I believe that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare.

What is the best way to prevent an abortion? It’s to stop unintended pregnancies before they happen. Study, after study, has shown that where contraception is available, inexpensive, and coupled with proper sexual health education the abortion rates are lower. So why do so many in the movement oppose these proven methods if their real goal is to “save babies”?
