This morning I was reminded again that abortion is a front-line issue, both politically and spiritually. I came to work with Laura this morning (I’m actually in her office right now). She is the director of the Market Street center for A Woman’s Choice Resource Center, located across the street from Louisville’s abortion clinic. A Woman’s Choice sees thousands of women every year with almost 70% of women deciding against abortion after seeing ultrasounds and talking with counselors. (While I was there I ran into Hank on the sidewalk outside of the abortion clinic.)
Encouragement and heart-break abound around a center like A Woman’s Choice. One thing is for sure: this issue needs to be even more central for Christians who believe the biblical Gospel. There were dozens of Catholics outside the abortion clinic praying “Hail Mary, full of grace…” I love their heart for life and commitment to it. But I wish they were praying to Jesus.
There isn’t much more I have to say right now, except that I’m repenting of not being as focused on this issue. This blog is going to be much more “life-centric” from this point onward.
