The unborn victims of abortion have no voice. Their screams are silent to those in the outside world, as they are killed in their mother’s womb. The unborn rely on us to be their voice.
Since its legalization in 1973, it is estimated that over 60 million babies in the US have been killed through abortion. This past Friday, the annual American March for Life was held in Washington, D.C. to mark the 45th anniversary of continued death in America. This march is the largest pro-life event in the world, where you can be sure that the unborn voice, through the participants, is heard.
So you can imagine my repugnance for those activists out there who suggest that pro-lifers ought to carry pro-immigration, anti-racism, and #MeToo slogans, along with their usual placards, as a protest to President Trump. After all, they argue, these causes are pro-life too, no?
As much as I welcome activism, civil discourse, and debate in society, hijacking the March for Life with other hot issues of the day isn’t just inappropriate, it’s downright offensive.
These unborn victims have no voice outside of the pro-life cause. The Women’s March certainly doesn’t support the pro-life position; in fact they abhor it. Several pro-life women were themselves assaulted by other women just for showing up with a pro-life placard.
Absolutely, immigration is important. Certainly, sexual abuse ought to be called out. Definitely, racism has no place in society. However, the biggest offence to humanity, and the leading cause of death in the US is abortion, not illegal immigration, not racism, and not sexual abuse. The biggest threat to these unborn babies is abortion. Plain and simple. What good is a debate about immigration to the unborn if they are killed?
Are these issues linked? Sure there is some connection. We all know that frequently, abortion is used to cover up sexual assault. And the greatest exhibition of racism in America currently is the fact that black babies are aborted at far greater number than white babies, thanks in part to sinister, targeted marketing by abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood.
While I look forward to a day when America comes to its senses and abortion is made illegal again, and perhaps other issues can be pursued. Until that time, the central focus of the March for Life is and ought to be abortion.
Anything else is a further attempt to suffocate the voices of the unborn.
