While I’ve been fairly vocal about not placing a ton of faith in politics, we do have an opportunity to vote for our representatives and not vote for the ones who don’t represent our values. To see who voted against defunding Planned Parenthood, look here. Vote wisely.
Organizations like LifeTalk and Feminists for Life offer women help and solutions that do not include abortion. Since the government wants to bank roll Planned Parenthood, use the money they don’t take from you to support organizations who care for the health of babies and women and use practices you believe in.
It’s disheartening, to say the least, when so much awful can be put in the face of Americans and they remain apathetic about human life, refusing to grant that life the dignity of even being called human. There’s a quote from a Lumineers' song that says, “the opposite of love’s indifference”, and that has always made sense to me. Apathetic indifference. It’s disgusting.
Praying and seeking Christ in the middle of such horrific realities in our country is essential. Jesus knows the end game, He’ll get us there. Pray for His discernment and courage to follow His will during these times, and always. Pray for those who refuse to see these atrocities for what they really are. Pray for the babies. Just pray.
