It is perhaps the most common accusation made to pro-life supporters: “You don’t care about children AFTER they are born.”

I share how to address this unfounded reaction to protecting human life in this short video:

To watch the video, click the image or visit:

There is no consistency in claiming you want to protect the lives of born children but then destroying pre-born children in the womb. The only consistency is protecting all life from the moment that life enters the world.

Those who want to use abortion or dehumanizing laws to eliminate poverty, disease, or disabilities create the darkest eras in human history.

The irony is that no abortion advocate cares what you do or don’t do for born children if you claim to be pro-life. This hypocrisy is already on full display with the attacks on Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, who has been labeled a "white colonizer" for adopting two Haitian children in need of a family.

Visit, find your local vigil, and sign up to stand up for life before and after birth.

Traverse City, Michigan

Francis in Traverse City was at the vigil site when a stranger approached him to explain that he adopted a child three months ago...

...because he was inspired by the sight of vigil participants praying in front of Planned Parenthood!

"A blessing," remarked Jeffrey, the local campaign leader. "A child has a home due to all of your efforts. God is good always!"

Bratislava, Slovakia

The 40 Days for Life campaign in Bratislava is off to a strong start.

Martina said that her group is small, but dedicated and doing its best.

Those efforts are paying off already as a television station came out to film and interview vigil participants.

Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

— Psalm 82:4

Father, may you empower the hundreds today who are serving in our pregnancy help centers. Grant those answering calls, providing ultrasound and following up with a bold spirit of truth, love and perseverance.
