Shane Claiborne reflects on the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade | Red Letter Christians

Shane Claiborne reflects on the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade | Red Letter Christians.

Claiborn explains in this text what it means for him to be pro-life:
‘I want to be pro-life like Mother Teresa was pro-life.  She didn’t just wear an “Abortion is murder shirt” and protest outside a clinic.  For her, being pro-life was more than being anti-abortion… it meant coming alongside teenage parents, helping raise kids that no one wanted, and taking in families who had no place to go.  That’s the kind of pro-life movement we’re talking about.  Pro-life from the womb to the tomb.’

Do you, as a Christian, not only believe in the dignity of human life before birth, but also after the foetus is born. Most pro-lifers, it seems, at least in the American Religious Right, could not care less about the dignity of Human life after birth. They religion (and politics with it) is a perverted ‘gospel’, used to smash those who think differently than they do, not to love and serve them, as Christ did, in the most sacrificial manner.

May God have mercy on us, his followers!
