 He observed how the battle lines were drawn:

The terms “pro-life” and “pro-choice” generally boil down to the question of whether the individual wants to see abortion banned…[2]

And it was no surprise to him why the Pro-Life side wasn’t evidently winning on such a self-evident truth[3]. It appeared to him as another veiling of the truth by the evil one: Pro-Life, Pro-Choice, just camps and an individual choice to belong in either one.

But it got worse when the unbounded one was also brought it into one of the camps as in ‘God is Pro-Life’.

Proclaim the truth boldly[4]:

  1. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.[5]
  2. And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true G_d, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.[6]
  3. But the LORD is the true G_d; he is the living G_d and the everlasting King. At his wrath the earth quakes and the nations cannot endure his indignation.

And then what shall they say to this? If G_d is for us, who is against us?[7]
