My family and I won’t be attending today’s March for Life in D.C. for a variety of reasons, some of which I explained in a post last year. That being said, I do sincerely pray for a successful event insofar as they make a louder-than-usual statement about the issue of abortion. Indeed, I read in the news this morning that there is expected to be a huge turnout this year. Pray that the elected officials in D.C. will take notice and consider the pro-life message. What I call “Pro-Life, Inc.” may indeed be part of the problem, but there’s no doubt that the folks showing up in the cold today have good intentions and sincerely want abortion to end.
There will also be Christians there today who are using this as an opportunity for evangelism. They will be witnessing to Roman Catholics and others who are caught up in a false gospel. Pray for their efforts and for the conversion of souls, that the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ would be boldly proclaimed and planted there today. As I articulated in my last post, the holocaust of abortion will never end in America unless the Gospel becomes the central focus of our anti-abortion efforts. The Abolish Human Abortion organization understands this and I encourage you to support them. They’re a relatively new organization and they have an affiliate in Virginia too.
