I missed the pro-life Law and Order episode everyone has been talking about. Fortunately, Fr. Pavone sent out a link to Jill Stanek’s post about it, and in her post, she links to the online episode. I hope to be able to watch it soon. Just thought I’d share it with you now, both the video and her post about it. :)
Peace be with you. I’m diving back into my novel. I’m getting close to the 10,000 word mark and there’s a cup of hot coffee calling my name, then I’ll be off to my weekly pro-life prayer group, where we talk about many things besides abortion, though abortion is the main object of our prayers, as in, the end of abortion and the culture of death. Boggles my mind that so many people refuse to acknowledge our views as pro-life and insist on reducing them to anti-abortion. I am for life, not merely anti-murder, though, of course, being for life includes and presupposes anti-murder. But it includes much else besides. Much much else. Why is that so hard to understand?
Really, I don’t think it’s hard to understand at all. I don’t think it’s that they don’t understand, those who call us “anti-abortion” or “anti-choice”. I think it is a refusal to understand, to see, to acknowledge. I think it is a denial. A desperate and pathetic one, at that. Wake up, people. Get real, for heaven’s sake. For all of us.
