All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

The other day, while visiting someone else's blog, I came across a link to I thought that I had heard of the website before and that it had something to do with abortion. So this time I decided to check it out.

Wow. I've always believed that abortion was wrong, but honestly, I didn't think about it a lot. Once a year I raised money for a local pregnancy support center and participated in a walk, but that's about it. When I started reading on that site, I couldn't stop. And when I came to the abortion pictures, I didn't want to look. There was a warning that they were graphic, and I really didn't want to see it. But I needed to, so I looked. It made me feel sick to my stomach. Why in the world aren't we, as Christians, doing more than just telling people that abortion is wrong (and usually not having proof to back our stance)? Don't we realize how terrible and heartbreaking it is that millions of helpless babies are being murdered and torn apart in the most brutal way?

Abortion should make us sick. And heartbroken. It should make us angry and furious- in a Jesus turning over the tables in the temple sort of way.

And we should do something about it. It's easy to get overwhelmed and wonder what good one person can do to. How about researching the facts and knowing what to say when someone asks you why you're against abortion? Or donating some money or time (volunteering) to a local pregnancy crisis center? Or buying an Abort73 shirt and telling people to check out the website when they ask you about it? Or buying some promo cards to leave around or making your own, Operation Beautiful style, if you're low on cash?

We can all do something.

Until next time,


  1. My youth leader showed us this a couple years ago, I think it'll interest you. . .

  2. abortion really makes me sad as well. We need more awareness!
