Expanding the Definition of “Pro-Life” — annieasksyou…

I am reblogging this excellent essay by Annie that states succinctly what many of us have been thinking and gives some hope that what we have been thinking is finally being given a voice and more importantly, being heard.

I noticed it first when I watched Elizabeth Neumann speak about her reasons for resigning from her position as the Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary of Threat Prevention and Security Policy. She was tasked with following right-wing threats inside the United States, and she emphatically stated that President Trump had made her job harder.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Judy,
    Thank you. I have been thinking these things, as well. To see my thoughts in print brought me a semblance of peace and a lot of hope. I don’t think of my blog as a place for political activism, as I believe in seperation of state and church. So, I have refrained from speaking out on the political awfulness (i hope that’s a word) in my blog. But I wake every day fearful of another four years of Trump and the possibility of more hatred, loss of gains made by men and women of color and white women, particularly in light of the misinformation and distortions on the Internet introduced to justify white male supremacy. So, I am thankful for the courage of the people who speak out and say what I think but may be too timid to say in my blog posts.

    Thanks for posting this Judy. It covers a thought that I have been trying to express for years; and it does it in such a way that even persons who do not take into consideration the full scope of the question should be able to understand. I do blame both parties for not covering this fully while using it as a political football instead. Maybe we can now hope that congress will make it more understood for all of us, even evangelicals~!

    I have taken the liberty of posting it to my Facebook to expand the reading public~!

      Good. I agree with everything you said..These are feelings i’ve expressed often, but not nearly as well as she did. And, without the added hopeful message of those who are shifting their vote and their reasoning about the matter.
