“Face of evil is itself evil, God will not hold us guiltless, not to speak is to speak, not to act is to act.” -Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer was a German man who fought the injustices of the Nazi regime. All life is something so precious it should never be ignored.

To be a witness to the Pro-Life message, all Christians must show God’s love to everyone they meet, no matter what age, nationality, religion, or gender. Someone who hopes to spread God’s love can do many things to make the most vulnerable feel appreciated, important, and loved.
The Land of the Free
Today in America, we claim to be a free land. Yet, in 1973, our court handed down a decision that has deprived over 58 million innocent people of their most basic and fundamental freedom – the right to life. Roe v. Wade was meant to protect liberty, but it has only wreaked incredible havoc on our American freedom.
“You will know the Truth and It will set you free,” Pope John Paul II said to a group of earnest onlookers during a homily in Baltimore, Maryland.
When Roe v Wade was passed in 1973, many people presumably thought they were more free because of it. However, this is simply not the case. Abortion makes our country less free because it denies babies their right to life, allows doctors and mothers to commit harmful actions without legal consequences, and it goes against the true meaning of freedom.
