Christians have abortions, too

By Jonathon Van Maren

One of the most predominant challenges for pro-life activists has always been a simple one: Most Christians do not take abortion seriously. While those of us who work in the pro-life movement know that abortions take place with chilling frequency within Christian schools, churches, and organizations, many Christians feel as if this is a problem “out there.” Some church leaders, of course, know that abortions take place—it’s why many are so reticent to allow pro-life speakers to present to their congregants in the first place. It’s too controversial, we often hear. It’s why so often, they seem more likely to emphasize that forgiveness for abortion exists while neglecting to warn about the horrific reality of what abortion is in the first place.

The Pro-Choice Dictionary: A Satire

By Jonathon Van Maren

Abortion—A procedure very similar to brushing your teeth, by which an irritant is removed, making you feel happy.

File 3532

Abortion Clinic—A wonderful health care facility in which medical professionals can dispense with the results of irresponsible sex by vacuuming out the uterus.

Abortionist—A feticide technician unburdened by the technicalities of the Hippocratic Oath and the respect of his colleagues.

Abortus—A term invented to refer to the aborted fetus to avoid recognizing his or her humanity.

Argument—A conversation in which words come together to form coherent points and counterpoints. Something pro-choice people should avoid in favor of protest. [See: chanting, pot-clanging, illiterate sign-making.]

Perspective at "Choice" Chain

By Justina Van Maren

Some days, you’re tired. Some days you wake up and you wonder if anything is really worth it. After all, the Liberals have a majority government and more people watch soccer games than bother to come to a pro-life event and learn how they can end the greatest genocide of all time; people just don’t care. Some days you wonder if you really care or if praying about abortion, slipping “choice” cards in bathroom stalls, and setting up pro-life club meetings have just become mundane habit. And then you do “Choice” Chain.
