Dissidents of this Culture of Death

 We fully realize that our views are not going to be popular with the world, and we embrace the fact that they will be rejected and scorned by those who do not adopt a Christ-centered view of reality. We know that pro-lifers will find our proclamation of “the gospel as the only answer to abortion” quite polarizing and generally deleterious to their big-tent approach. We are more than aware that our blatant Evangelicalism will be frowned upon by the wider Roman Catholic-controlled Pro-Life Movement. But we believe the gospel is the answer to abortion and that many of the leaders and workers in the Pro-Life Movement have themselves either rejected the gospel as the power of God for salvation and new birth, or do not possess it themselves.

We desire to shine as lights in this present darkness
 and make ourselves seen and heard in this culture of child-killing-tolerance and abortion-as-birth-control complacency. We are against the world, for the world; and though we live in the world, we do not orient our lives around its principles. We are not concerned with fitting in and remaining friends with those who think pre-born children are expendable. We are not afraid of being labeled fanatics and fundamentalists by those who politically oppose the “right to abortion” but are far more interested in football.

857195_469949179737768_1712719584_o-194x300We refuse to calmly and quietly agree to disagree on this issue.  Most people, even good “pro-life” people, are far too sensitive and socially insecure to speak their mind about such a controversial “issue” except when they are safe within the confines of their church, family, or circle of pro-life friends. People who are more concerned with personal peace and affluence need not call themselves abolitionists. Indeed, those who will not discuss abortion in the public square are not just failing to be abolitionists, they are failing to be Christians who “shine as lights in the midst of this crooked and twisted generation” (Philippians 2:15)

Our intention is actually to create conflict. 
We seek to divide the world between those who are keeping abortion from being abolished (pro-choicers, personally-prolife-pro-lifers, abortion advocates, and abortionists) and those who are seeking its immediate and unconditional abolition (abolitionists).
In this we follow our Lord Jesus: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34, ESV).
