Dear pro-life student leader,
The abortion industry is in a state of panic. They are at a complete loss on how to reach you – the younger generation who is more intensely passionate about ending abortion than your peers are about supporting it and who believe abortion is morally wrong.
They have tried winning you over by saying that they want abortion to be safe, legal and rare.
Then they tried to throw out the term “pro-choice” because it’s no longer resonating with you.
Then they tried to tell you that pro-life politicians and businesses wanted to take away your rights.
Then they tried to de-stigmatize abortion by saying it’s a hard decision but responsible one.
Then they tried to de-stigmatize abortion, again, but by saying that it’s an easy decision.
And now their latest scheme to win your approval is to just fool you by saying over and over again that abortion is a social good so that you will come to believe it.
The trouble is that you have grown up with the incredible advantage of technology. You’ve seen your brothers, sisters, and maybe even your own children’s fingers and toes and heard their heartbeat during an ultrasound. It’s undeniable that the child in the womb is a child, a living human being, and that an abortion takes the life of that child.
The trouble is that you have grown up knowing the scientific evidence of when life begins and that abortion ends that life.
The trouble is that you don’t believe the spin on abortion since you know it’s wrong because that little life has the same right to life as any other human being and the taking of that life is exactly what abortion does.
And this is why the abortion industry can’t get their story straight. Their latest antics of using an argument of abortion being a social good is mind-blowing. A social good is something that is good for everyone, that we should all be able to get behind – like clean air and water. Is abortion as good as drinking clean water? How do those two even equate? They don’t, and you’re smart enough to know that.
In just a few days, all of you are going to shock the abortion industry by showing your energy, passion and enthusiasm at the National March for Life in Washington, D.C.. A few years ago, the former head of the abortion group NARAL, Nancy Keenan, said that she was just shocked at how young the participants at the March for Life were. She was simply blown away.
Not only are all of you young, passionate pro-lifers but you are smart, which is why abortion advocates will never win you over with their ridiculous arguments. Nothing can take away the fact that abortion is the taking of a life of a child and hurts both mom and baby.
But it’s not over after the March for Life. You will go back to your campuses with a renewed sense of purpose and strength and educate your peers on the reality of abortion. You will hold baby showers for pregnant students on campus. You will show displays on how the abortion industry targets college students. You will chalk, table, and clipboard for new members. You will pray outside of abortion facilities. You will turn women away from Planned Parenthood.
You will be our movement’s army of love and that, my friends, is what scares abortion advocates the most.
