Roe reversed - How do pro-life people respond? "Modeling Grace to Your Kids in the Pro-Life Message"
We stand on the precipice of an historic transformation, both for good and for evil, as we process the landmark ruling by the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. Now is the time for us to be honing our pro-life messages and teaching our children, what does it mean to be pro-life. The headlines today are like the opening lines of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities:
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness … it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…”
With this change, the legality of abortion is now placed in the hands of the legislature of each state. It is the best of times in that twenty-six states will likely ban or restrict access to abortion as a result. It is the worst of times in that the other twenty-four states will continue to provide abortions—in some cases all the way up to nine months.
In response to this highly polarized issue, young people today are often confused by rhetoric coming from their peers, schools, and media. So how can a Bible-believing parent respond to questions from their children and teens when they ask about abortion? How can we teach our children to defend life in a gracious, yet articulate and persuasive way?
Since the earliest days of Christianity, believers have been faced with difficult moral questions, just as we do today. How have parents navigated these difficult waters, striving to uphold biblical morality and to walk in the teachings of Christ while living in a fallen world? What are some lessons from scripture and from Christian history that can help parents guide their children today – helping them to become pro-life kids?
