Only God Can Change Hearts on Abortion, But We Can Help
I’ve attended the March for Life in Washington, D.C., numerous times since they began in the mid-1970s, but this year, I have a sense of anticipation and excitement like I’ve never experienced before..
Every single human life has such profound value, meaning, and purpose, beyond anything we can imagine.
Tragically, abortion will not disappear in the United States even if Roe v. Wade, the 1973 high court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, is overturned. Instead, the battleground will simply shift, and the fight against abortion will continue as each state seeks to regulate abortion for its residents—and depending on where we live, the new abortion laws may very well be more horrific than they are now…
The heart of a baby starts beating about 22 days after conception. Her heart will continue to beat until she is called home. This baby’s heart will experience all that a human heart can experience: a heart full of joy and peace; a heart broken; a heart full of love.
We pray for the hearts of all babies, that abortion will not stop them from beating. Yet our endgame must also include a change of millions of older hearts, so our whole culture respects human life at every stage.
Now, only God can create a human heart. Only He can change the hearts of those who do not yet recognize the dignity of each person—but we can help…
We need to be Christ for others, to love them, to show them kindness and mercy, and trust that God will use our efforts to bring change—the change that does not depend on the courts or the legislature, but on the conviction of our culture that every human life deserves protection and should receive it from conception to natural death.
