Pro-Life or Anti-Abortion?
I'm sure you have heard about the murder of George Tiller, the nation's most well-known provider of late-term abortions. Tiller was murdered, in his church, by Scott Roeder, a militant anti-abortionist. Obviously Tiller's murder was not, or at least should not have been, condoned by any real pro-life groups. Make no mistake, Roeder is not pro-life, he is anti-abortion. Apparently there is a difference. Real "pro-lifers" respect life from conception to natural death. Murder is not a natural death. What Tiller and his "colleagues" do is wrong, but it is not up to us to decide their fate. They need our prayers more than anything. In no way does murder or violence of any sort help the pro-life cause. It is blatantly against our cause. The pro-life movement is more than just anti-abortion, it aims at defending life from conception to natural death. Obviously abortion is a serious and important issue but it is not the only issue. Please pray for Roeder and others like him, who have strayed from the path of the pro-lif movement and instead have simply become anti-abortion.
