My Protest Is LoveTuesday, September 08, 2015
So-- I got to thinking about what I was feeling from the last post. My protest being love, I mean. It took over my entire week.
I started something I believe will be interesting. Over HERE is what I created- in hopes of a like-minded collective of people who will decide to make love be their protest.
I'd like to begin making commitments to vulnerable families, either via financial donations to established pro-life charities which deal with helping those who choose to continue their pregnancies in less than optimal circumstances or in tangible goods for the families who I know.
If you're moved to do the same, please do so... and then take lots of photos for me to share on the blog. You can email me images of your Love Protest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have also taken ownership of a Facebook page of the same name, which in the long run will probably be more frequently updated than the blog.... Please feel free to like and follow the page, and afterwords share photos of your Love Protest there. Tag them @myprotestislove and #myprotestislove.
I know my idea is distinctly pro-life, but this is something which even pro-choice friends could participate in. It's all about helping people.
I hope that people participate and choose to protest not only with picket signs in front of clinics but with tangible goods which will help more women parent their children instead of ending their lives.
Studies have shown the second most common reason for a woman to end a pregnancy is financial inability to care for a child. The first reason: an ambiguous "not ready to have a child", which could indicate anything from not wanting children to a lack of support from others. Helping those who would parent if given the financial resources and support may not end all abortions, but it will go a long way towards curbing the number of abortions performed.
