“Bandaids don’t fix bullet holes.” – Taylor Swift, Bad Blood
Thank you, T-Swift.
Roe v Wade was the worst bandaid this nation has ever put on one of its problems.
Let’s assume human life begins at conception – because science clearly shows us. But faith takes it a step further:
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” – Jeremiah 1:5
What does that mean for us? Over 57 million American lives have been “legally” exterminated because of a controversial, unconstitutional decision given to us in the 1973 Supreme Court case, Roe v Wade.
We’re fast approaching 60million, meaning we will have murdered 10 times more human beings than Jews killed by Nazis https://t.co/7iAkFr6KRd

Let me be clear: the “law of the land” may change, but God’s Law never changes, especially from the Author and Perfecter of life.
Abortion, no matter how it’s packaged or sold, is the killing of an innocent life.
But our society has traded sacrifice for convenience, and sadly every argument for abortion can’t undo the harm and pain of the very act it tries to sanitize and legalize.
Defenseless, voiceless lives are being lost and what do we have to answer for them?
Our silence and inaction is inhuman.
It’s not just the children who we hurt; abortion rips apart families, siblings, future generations.
So what’s the answer?
Part of it is mobilizing, and that’s why I am so proud of my friends marching in Washington, DC on behalf of life – God bless each one of you and may your testimony bring more people into the movement.

I had the honor and privilege of working at Live Action for two years, known for their undercover investigations into the abortion industry’s horrible practices (aborting children based on their race, gender, etc. and Planned Parenthood covering up sex trafficking of minors and more), yet I still have a hard time putting into words the seriousness of the matter. But one thing Lila Rose said that has really stuck with me: “Live your life like a prayer.”
This isn’t a political issue. It’s not a religious issue. It’s a human issue.
As I write this, I can’t help but think of the women who have already had an abortion or are planning one. My heart breaks for them and I will never know their pain or loss, but I know healing is possible.
I won’t even try to put into words the loss of each child aborted, but we shouldn’t forget them.
And to my fellow brothers, we need to go out of our way to respect and honor women – abortion doesn’t do that.
We need to care for the least in our society – abortion threatens them.
You may ask, What can I do? Who am I? For starters, you have a voice, and if you’re reading this, you’ve been given the gift of life.
Celebrate life! Share it with others. We overcome evil with good, we shine light on darkness.
Pray. There is nothing more powerful than heaven on earth.
Speak out. Talk to someone. Give a speech. Start a dialogue.
Donate. Time (sidewalk counseling), money (pro-life orgs), or resources (Pregnancy Care Center).
Join the movement. Find your place. I attempted to start the Bro-Life Movement with a few others.
We press on, united, until the day when every person is guaranteed the God-given, inalienable right to life.
And since I started my post with T-Swift, I can only end with my bro-life bro, J-Biebs:
Let’s be the generation that makes the world a better place

I’m Bro-Life. We’re the Pro-Life Generation! We will reverse Roe v Wade and end abortion in our lifetime…but until then, we keep marchin’ on!
