The accusation is made that it is not pro-life to close an
abortion facility by destroying the building, and not pro-life
to shoot an abortionist.
I did a lot of blockades with Advocates For Life, Lambs
of Christ, Operation Rescue, and other groups. I also did a
lot of picketing and other pro-life activities.
Sometimes I felt like a failure when I stood with a sign
and didn't do everything I could to try to save babies lives.
I let them kill the babies! I allowed it. When you stand and
watch 20 or more babies being taken to their death, how is
that more pro-life than making it so those babies cannot
Allowing many babies to be killed day after day may not
even be "pro-choice." It may actually be pro-abortion. Think
about it. I was allowing the "choice" of abortion, but didn't
really stop it. I didn't give the babies any choice.
I'm sure picketing, praying, rescuing, and other works do
a lot of good. As far as really stopping abortion, really
saving the most lives, really loving our neighbor (even the
least of these) as ourselves and doing for them what we
would want done for us, really doing the will of God and
being obedient whatever the cost, the things they say
are not "pro-life" are actually the most pro-life.
This isn't meant to condemn the other works. God may
not want all of us doing the same thing; I don't know.
I don't believe He wants us to condemn other people's
works in Him, whether we understand them or not.
We know that they don't know. We've been there.
I used to argue against the use of force. I'm thankful
that I was never quoted by national media accusing
those who did more than I had of not really being
Could they possibly believe that honors God? Surely
they can see it does nothing to stop abortion. The
pro-aborts agree with them, that the building should
not be closed and the killers should not be stopped.
Claiming it's only pro-life to want all people alive,
including the abortionist, is deception. If the
abortionist remains alive, many babies die. Keeping
Hitler alive as long as his men did was not pro-life,
and neither is the death of thousands of innocent babies
rather than one guilty murderer. That "choice" is
abortion. Those who killed abortionists chose life for
all the innocent babies he would have killed, and did
our country a great service.
"... for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot
be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by
the blood of him that shed it." Numbers 35:33
