The pro-life movements focus is fundamentally on specific individuals. This is rarely acknowledged in media. Typically, when you see the issue of abortion discussed, it is looked at only from a large-scale point of view.
I am happy to announce a pro-life victory! I was at the mall earlier in the week buying khakis (because you can never have too many pairs of khakis), and I ran into a girl by the name of Diana. I recognized her from my school. Last school year our pro-life group had set up a booth to simply start good discussions with the rest of the student body. Diana was one of the first hostile encounters we had. She used many of the cliché pro-choice arguments. “My body, My choice," “you hate women," she gave us the works. But about halfway through our conversation she started to soften her tone. She saw we were a sincere group of people who genuinely wanted to help others. She left unsure of her stance on the issue of abortion.
As pro-life activists, it is easy to get discouraged when we do not see ground-breaking results. It is easy to want to take a break from being a modern day abolitionist. Before you do that, remember we serve a purpose that is great. Remember our focus at all times. That focus is the individual.
