    Great article, Ryan. I love your sensibility and knack for love.
    Though i do dissagree with one point. I think picketing is always bad. (not that it holds any bearring to your post). I find it to be much like terrorism, in many cases; especially regarding abortion. Scaring a girl who is already in a vulnerable place, into changing her decision.
    Anyways, thanks for this.

      Thanks for your kind words. I try to glorify God in everything and show the love of Christ to everyone. I am glad that it shows in my writing. You see picketing as terrorism through scaring an already vulnerable girl, but I see abortion as the systematic dismemberment, disembowelment and decapitation of a pre-born child. IN other words it is Murder of a child unable to defend itself. in my view there have been 54 million “legal” murders in the USA since 1967 – to me…that is terrorism. I am not just concerned with the Child, but also the mother. A study published in theJournal of Psychiatric Research (2008) found that “women who have aborted are at a higher risk for a variety of mental health problems including anxiety (panic attacks, panic disorder, agoraphobia, PTSD), mood (bipolar disorder, major depression), and substance abuse disorders, when compared to women without a history of abortion.” Along with the potential emotional harm comes the risk of physical complication. Surgical abortion has been associated with “minor” complications such as bleeding, fevers and abdominal pain, to more serious complications, including infection, perforation of the uterus and endotoxic shock. Additionally, there is evidence which suggests that women who have experienced abortion are more likely to develop breast cancer later in life.

      And like I said – when all the chips out down, when the day is over… I am more focused on the bigger picture. I do advocate against abortion, however the bigger picture is what is most important. Premarital sex, abortion, sexual exploitation of minors, and the like are all just a symptoms of a much larger issue. I will do what I can to present the cure of Christ crucified and resurrected. I will do what I can to show the love of God by being salt and light in a dark and confused world.

    I was very disappointed in what the President said! You wrote a great article and we should continue to fight this in any way that we can.

    “it is much easier to judge someone from behind your computer, than it is to show them the love of Christ in person.” I love this!!
