Roe v. Wade and Sanctity of Life Sunday

Today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, as well as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.

On this day, many pastors across the country are preaching on the topic of abortion. There are hurting men and women clinging tightly to the secret of having made "the choice" in their past.

I know that this time of year, with the anniversary of when abortion was legalized in America, it's much easier to think about it, talk about it, post about it, etc... but as the calendar flips to February, know that many of those who live with abortion don't only think of it one day, week, or month out of the year. And abortions are still taking place every day.

As you carry on throughout the year, please remember this and please keep having loving conversations about it, so that less men and women will have to live with the pain and regret themselves. Men and women like me.

Know that everyday you wake up is a day multiple men and women are grieving that on that exact date "x" amount of years ago, they chose to end their child's life. February 6th is that date for me. It's a modern-day Holocaust and it needs to end.

Remember this is not a political issue. Remember that beating hearts are at stake. Remember not to vilify and condemn, but to bring the glorious hope of Jesus and the redemption and restoration found at the cross when addressing this issue.

Here's a speech I gave at a Memorial Service for the Unborn on Sanctity of Life Sunday a couple years ago.
