Jane Roe, Pro-life Advocate

The other day, I was sitting at home when I heard this commercial begin to air on our television.  Was I really hearing this right?  I couldn’t believe that “Jane Roe” would be speaking out against abortion.

The woman who fought to make abortion legal in the United States is now speaking out against that legislation.  A baby is a life–not just a mass of tissue–from the moment they are conceived.  Psalm 139:13 says “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”  From the time a baby is conceived, God is weaving and knitting them together, making them into the beautiful creation that he can’t wait to see grow up and live out all the dreams and plans he has in store for them.

What does this mean for our country?  How will we respond to this news that the woman who fought to make abortion legal now recognizes that the court decision has led to the death of over 50 million innocent lives?

We pray.  We encourage young, seemingly hopeless mothers to consider their options, whether that means keeping the baby or giving them to a couple who isn’t able to have children, rather than discarding them as if they were not a precious human life. We must live as Jesus calls us to live, serving our neighbor and those in need as we seek to eradicate this genocide of our children in the United States.

    Wow. This is amazing. We really need to get the word out about this. What surprised me the most was her statement that after fighting this case, she didn’t actually have an abortion. Did I hear that right? Did she really say that?

    Mandie! You did hear her right! Isn’t that amazing?! Can you imagine! Something a friend of mine has told me many times now continues to resonate in my mind . . . she says, “I’ve never heard of a woman who says, ‘I’m so glad I had my abortion.'”

    That is so profound to me. I recognize that there are often profound challenges for the people that make this decision, but I don’t think anyone is consciously happy about a decision to eliminate their child.

    I watched another short film from this site titled “Truth”: http://virtuemedia.org/films.htm You can find it toward the bottom of the page. It’s not visually difficult, but it is emotional as women share their personal experience and regret after having an abortion. So sad.

    An update from VirtueMedia.org, the creators of this ad:

    In fall 2008, over 22,000 abortion vulnerable women responded to our national crisis pregnancy ads during our 5 week test. Now, our new 2009 national MTV and BET ad campaign is yielding as many as 2,460 requests for help each day the ads air. We pray that more support will come, so that we can continue to air these powerful ads to help save thousands of babies this year.

    VirtueMedia ads also help reduce abortions in local communities. During the past years, VirtueMedia’s pro-life messages have been credited as helping to reduce abortions by as much as 20% in cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, Dayton and Phoenix.
