Ways to Be Pro-Life

Today is the March for Life in Washington DC as well as smaller versions in cities all over the nation. Why today? It’s the anniversary of Roe v. Wade being decided.

If you’re reading this blog, you probably know that I’m pro-life. I do not, however, believe that the pro-choice side is completely evil and I have friends who have had abortions so I have no desire to rail against women who have them — for all I know, I could have easily had one in college if circumstances had been different. Instead of making my entry today all about abortion, I thought I’d list off ways that you can be pro-life… from conception to death.

[+] Donate to your local crisis pregnancy center. Seriously, many are woefully underfunded and can use all the help they can get.

[+] If you play an instrument, go give a concert at a retirement home. You will brighten their day.

[+] Work for comprehensive immigration reform so that people can immigrate legally and not be stuck in decades of waits and catch-22’s.

[+] Donate medical supplies to doctors who are going to perform medical missions abroad. If you’re a healthcare professional, consider taking part in one.

[+] Volunteer at your local soup kitchen or food bank.

[+] Advocate for orphans.

[+] Write an encouraging note to someone telling them how they impact your life positively.

[+] Tell a young mother how adorable her child is… even if you’re lying through your teeth. Believe me, WE NEED TO HEAR IT!!!

[+] Pray for someone who has wronged you.

This is not an exhaustive list by far but it’s a good start.
