Transformation Includes Saving Lives...
From the beginning, God told Adam & Eve to be fruitful and multiply and subdue the earth... and Christ redemptively reiterated our command to be spiritually fruitful... "teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you"... which included... "I have come that you may have LIFE and have it to the full". As a result, we easily recognize that true transformation inherently includes the protection of those who can little protect themselves... including the elderly... the disabled... and all children... including unborn children.
My wife & I personally know the pain of losing a full-term yet unborn child -- no amount of 'convenience' could offset that grief. An adult's voice arguing for a pro-choice convenience-centered 'privacy' still pales against the non-voice of an unborn child.
And we grieve not only for the unborn, but for the young mothers (and fathers) that bear this weight for a lifetime. Jesus was ultimate compassion, and we, the Christian community, must be also. Here's a link to my friends at the Central Indiana Crisis Pregnancy Center... who similarly express their faith in love & actions of true compassion.
Community 'transformers' ask... "What would a transformed Indiana look like?" The answer clearly includes an Indiana that honors God-designed families... and protecting the unborn.
Every ounce of my vision for exploiting this new tool we call the internet, to weave the Christian community ever more tightly together in purpose & principle, to promote the (whole) Great Commission, includes supporting the pro-life cause.
