Re-posting this meme I made in 2013 because some people are going crazy over the Students for Life of America graphic that says: “Do not call a woman who has procured an abortion, a murderer”.
Calling a post-abortive woman a murderer doesn’t bring anyone closer to God but here is what it does:
-It hurts you because you may be hoarding contempt and hatred in your heart.
-It makes the Pro-Life/Pro-Choice wall of incomprehension grow bigger.
-It alienates women and makes some believe that they have committed the unforgivable sin; so they run even further away from God.
Also, (I’ve said it many times and I will say it again): it’s not your business what degree of responsibility a woman has in her abortion and whether or not she has repented. That’s between her and her confessor; between her and God. The graveness of a sin and how repentant one is doesn’t make a person less valuable than another.
Judging a soul is God’s business, not yours. Your business is to be compassionate and to offer help. Yes abortion is atrocious but if you can’t find it in your heart to be compassionate to ALL of its victims; if you want to save the babies while looking down on the mothers, I seriously don’t know what you are doing in the Pro-Life movement.
