Randy Alcorn's Blog: Prolife

Five Years Later, a Story About a Super Bowl Blessing

Super Bowl BlessingSome of you will remember the 2010 Super Bowl commercial, produced by Focus on the Family and featuring a prolife message from Pam Tebow about her son, Tim. Five years later, we get a glimpse of how God has used that “controversial” commercial to His glory. 

A Discussion with Lecrae and John Piper on Hip Hop, Abortion, and Race

John Piper, Lecrae, and John EnsorJohn Ensor, president of Passion Life Ministries, recently sat down with Christian Hip Hop artist Lecrae and John Piper to discuss abortion and racism, as we mark Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (January 18) and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 19).

He Was the Only One to Defend the Disabled

Killing an unborn child just because you have not held him in your arms and can’t hear his cry does not change his value or mitigate his loss when he is killed. - Randy AlcornGuest post from Kathy Norquist, Randy’s executive assistant.

My nephew, Tyler, is finishing up his college courses and was taking a biology class to complete some requirements. The topic of testing during pregnancy to see if your baby is healthy came up during class. The question was asked, “Would you abort your child if there was a medical problem?” 

Sidewalk Counseling, a Life Saved, and a Family Brought the Gospel

Baby RomanI love this prolife story. It testifies to the ways God can use believers peacefully praying, holding signs, and sharing prolife information as well as the gospel, outside an abortion clinic.

Abortion Too Controversial to Address in Church? (Plus Information on the Oregon 2014 Citizen Initiative with an Urgent Deadline of June 30)

Unborn child at 16 weeksThe desire to be popular and avoid people’s disapproval is a common reason for Christian leaders to hold back in pro-life efforts. But for every reason we have, we must be ready to answer a question on the last day: “Was that reason more important than the lives of all those children I created in my image?”

 

Why Denying the Guilt Associated with Abortion Will Never Work

Baby ultrasoundThe adverse physical and psychological consequences of abortion are well documented, with higher levels of depression and suicide. That’s what makes a recent viral prochoice video all the more disturbing and deceptive. Emily Letts, a 25-year-old abortion counselor in New Jersey, chose to make and share a video about her own first-trimester surgical abortion, claiming that she feels “super good after having an abortion.” She told Philadelphia Magazine, “Women and men have been thirsting for something like this. You don’t have to feel guilty.”

Lone baby shoe / skippytpe via photopin ccA friend who recently experienced a miscarriage shared this powerful blog post with me (it’s received over 1,100 comments, so obviously it resonated with many).

Sharing the Truth about the Unborn with Your Friends and Neighbors

The Sanctity of Human Life

The article in today’s blog is a simple, straightforward and powerful model for what we as supporters of the right to life can say to friends and neighbors and fellow employees who are immersed in a prochoice worldview. 

Should We Be for Adoption or Against Abortion?

Abraham Lincoln said, “To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.” / For Adoption or Against Abortion?I appreciated this article by Michael Spielman, director of a great organization called Abort73. Michael hits on something very important—the fact that we do need to tell people the truth about abortion, saturated with grace and kindness and empathy. Abraham Lincoln said, “To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.” Silence becomes a form of consent, a quiet permission. Let’s not be cowards. Let’s stand up for truth; let’s reach out in compassion.

The Problem with the Term “Pro-Choice”

The Problem with the Term "Pro-Choice" / Thumbs up signI confess that I dislike the term pro-choice. As I explain in my book Why ProLife?, I use it only because it has become the dominant term used in our culture. But it is pro­foundly misleading.
