“Arguing is substantially easier than convincing, isn’t it?”
There is a fine craft of learning the way of love that means we keep finding truth without thinking that makes me better than others.
Love says that it is good that you exist and in so far as I am able I will contribute to your happiness, your existence, your flourishing.
I can’t even tell you how sad it makes me when I hear pro-lifers call abortion supporters childish names. I am continually grateful for the pro-lifers who continued to respect my dignity when I worked inside the abortion industry. They hated what I did, but they continued to love me. They never called me a ‘deathscort,’ ‘murderer,’ or ‘baby killer.’
They just called me Abby.
They got to know me. They cared about me. And now look where I am today.
Name calling is childish and it is INCREDIBLY counterproductive to our movement.
