When I look at my companions’ and fellow co-workers I don’t just see familiar faces, but the faces of patriots like those of old outnumbered and worn, fighting a uphill battle in the face of staunch opposition. Standing for the unborn is serious job that requires those that believe in life to put in long hours. It taxes upon a person’s strength because evil does not sleep. I have had minimal sleep, and have not ceased to work an almost 24/7 schedule to defend life.
Sometimes I do look at my co-workers and wonder why am I killing myself over this? Why am I fighting so hard against a foe so big and abusive like Planned Parenthood? Why do I take endless photographs and walk among angry protesters and listen to people calling me a sexist bastard and illogical fool? Why do take the insults and threats that are sent in hateful passion by pro-choicers? I’ll tell you why. Because I serve a God greater than Planned Parenthood and a God so big that He can’t stoop to their level. I stand for those who can’t speak because it is right. I stand for those who can’t speak because if not me who will stop murder?
Today in front of the Texas House doors after House Bill 2 passed to the Senate, I saw a father and a son and the father told his young boy to tell the screaming and chanting pro-choice protestors to say “I love you”. That little boy shouted and his voice rang clear among the shouting. He was heard, and was ignored because truth is meaningless to those that want convenience over it. That young boy voiced a message that while we hate abortion and the effects that it has on our society. We do not hate the people supporting it. Our passion is life and to protect all human life.
My challenge to you is to tell a pro-choicer wherever you are and regardless of who they are. Tell them that you love them. Love is the only thing that is more powerful then hate. We need to overcome hate with love. I can guarantee you that even though the people yelling at the Reps walking out of the house heard that little boy and will be responsible for the hate that they inflict on others knowing the attitude of those that stand for life.
So go and overcome darkness with light, hate with love, and Satan with Jesus. We need patriots and Christians alike to fight the good fight and stand for life in the Texas Senate and Senate Bill 1. I challenge you to show love whether it be correctional, disciplinary, and parental love to show that love to those that want to murder their children. The world needs answers and we have them. Go let that answer be heard.
