And everyone like her. Everyone on “the other side.” The “pro-aborts” and the “radicals.” 

We need to have a conversation.

We made a post recently mentioning that we should watch Stacey Abrams’ Democrat response to President Trump’s State of the Union as it is highly suspected that she will be running for US Senate next year against Senator David Perdue.

Many folks responded by talking about voter dynamics in Georgia and her prospects in another statewide election here. But, some took the opportunity to make personal attacks on Stacey, calling her names, making unfounded accusations, insulting her physical appearance, and even making suggestively violent comments. 

I hope you can see that this is obviously a problem. 

Let me reiterate something that, perhaps forgotten in the fray of heated partisan politics over the last few years, we’ve lost sight of:

The pro-life position is a pro-woman position. It is pro-dignity, nonpartisan, non-sectarian, and hinges solely on the sanctity of all human life – for both the born and preborn, male and female, rich and poor, Republican and Democrat, healthy and disabled, religious and nonreligious, and regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity – because all life is made in the image of God.

That’s why we work to create positive alternatives for pregnancy and parenting, but we also oppose things like sex trafficking, advocate for dignity and accessibility for the differently-abled, ensure every child has a safe and loving home, AND oppose abortion. 

This isn’t about conceding a single premise of our beliefs. We can and should disagree on politics, policy, and philosophy with those who don’t advocate for the sanctity of human life. This is simply about being consistent with how and where we apply those beliefs. 

Pro-lifers passionately argue against exceptions when it comes to anti-abortion laws, but many seem perfectly content to carve out exceptions for valuing the dignity and lives of our political and ideological opponents. That has to end.

For the pro-life movement to truly be effective, let alone survive, we must recognize that if we are unable to love the abortion doctor, Democrat politician, and mother in crisis as much as we love babies in the womb, we’ve already lost. 

It’s time for us to put aside political rhetoric that divides and unite behind the only thing that should matter as we advocate for the pro-life position: all life is precious.

Letter about Rep. Scalise and Matt Mika

We just received this letter from our friends at National Right to Life asking us to pray for Rep Scalise and Matt Mika, both of whom are still in critical condition.  Pray for their healing, pray for peace and comfort for their families, and pray for a cultural change so that we no longer have these senseless attacks on sacred human lives.

Dear Friends,

I have no doubt you are praying for Rep. Steve Scalise and the others hurt in the shootings yesterday, but I want to encourage you to continue those prayers.  We would ask that you also contact your friends, urging them to do the same.

Rep. Steve Scalise, along with two members of the Capitol police force– Crystal Griner and David Bailey, Zach Barth, a congressional aide to Texas Rep. Roger Marshall, and Matt Mika, lobbyist for Tyson Foods and a former congressional staffer, all required medical attention.

Thankfully, Griner, Bailey, and Barth are doing well; Barth was interviewed with his boss this morning from the Capitol. Rep. Scalise and Mika are both still listed in critical condition.

Mika’s family issued a statement this morning, in which they stated, “Matt was shot multiple times in his chest and arm and suffered massive trauma. He remains in critical condition in the ICU at George Washington University Hospital. He requires assistance to breathe and will need additional surgeries. Matt has been alert, conscious and communicating through notes.”  In a statement last night, they asked for privacy.

Rep. Scalise had two surgeries yesterday and another one this morning. The hospital last evening released the following: “Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center.  He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding.  He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations.  We will provide periodic updates.”

Steve is not just a friend to the pro-life movement and strong ally of National Right to Life. He is one of us. Saving babies is at the top of his priority list. Sharon Rodi, our director from Louisiana, has known Steve his entire life and is extremely close to his family. He is one of the most dedicated and effective pro-life people in Congress. We pray for healing and hope to see him back in his role as Majority Whip soon.

 

Sincerely,

Carol Tobias, President

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday 2017

The year 2016 has been one full of twists and turns. It may only be October, but 2017 is fast approaching. In January, we will remember the 44th anniversary of the Supreme Court Decision on Roe vs. Wade; the decision that made abortion legal in the United States. Sunday, Jan 15, 2017 is designated as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday to remember the January 22nd decision.

At Georgia Life Alliance, we encourage life-giving involvement around this time and have written our Sanctity of Human Life Sunday bulletin insert to reflect a love for life, encouragement for prayer, thanks to those who advocate for the unborn and involvement with those who love on their mothers. This is also a difficult time for many so we encourage extra time and care be taken for those who remember with regret.
