There Is No Such Thing As A Pro Lifer When Children Are Still In Foster Care!
Reader in my humble opinion there is no such thing as a pro-lifer; especially if your reason for being one is just to prevent abolition. If these folks were real pro-lifers then they would care about all lives and donate to the care of children born into foster care OR adopt one of the many and take care of them through age 18. Plus if they were pro-lifers they would care for their seniors and the elderly. In my opinion, if you are not doing either of the above, then you have no right to say you are pro-life. Pro-Life means caring for every life from the Womb to Tomb.
According to statistics on any given day, there are approximately 415,000 children in foster care in the United States. In 2014, over 650,000 children spent time in U.S. foster care. On average, children remain in state care for nearly two years and seven percent of children in foster care have languished there for five or more years.
We need to care enough to walk with those who hurt. We find it easier to judge others than get to know them. We have those who want to replace Obama Care for I Don't Care.
This is an excellent essay and insightful post from Pastor Pavolovitz.
