Does the Church you attend have a pro-life group?
Advertisements [?]
Mine does. I was asked recently why I didn't participate in the walk for life in DC and I said "because I am pro-choice". Stunned silence. Then I was asked "is it because you are a democrat?" and I replied "No, it is because the government has no business meddling in people's medical affairs".

I am pro-choice, for others. I have never been in a situation where I needed to obtain an abortion, but I have many, many friends who did have abortions, and that decision is none of my business.

I just wish it weren't all so black and white. I am also Anti-Death Penalty, but these folks aren't. Don't understand why they don't see the hypocrisy in that.

Sigh.
