Education is power
“A person is a person, no matter how small” – Dr. Seuss
This silly quote from the Dr. Seuss classic, “Horton Hears a Who” speaks volumes to the pro-life movement, because it is true. A human in the womb is there to grow, gain strength, to prepare to live outside the womb.
We know that just because that person is small does not make it any less of a person, and so we see it fit to protect that tiny person. That tiny person is worth the protection just like you and I. I am so thankful that over the last 10/15 years the pro-life movement has realized that just as that baby is worth protecting so is the mother of that baby.
Early feminist, Alice Paul, said that abortion was, “the ultimate exploitation of women.” This quote is just as true today as it was in the earliest days of feminism. We have to empower women to know that abortion is not the only option.
Then, pregnancy centers, parenting centers, and churches must be there ready to walk through life with women who choose to carry. Programs like Merits for Mom, Earn While you Learn, Embrace Grace, and much more were created to educate and walk alongside women as the walk through pregnancy.
Women deserve to be educated of all their options, for education is power.
