John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Court Strikes Down New Jersey Abortion Buffer Zone Law That Silenced Pro-Life Advocates

Recommended Posts

A New Jersey federal court struck down a City of Englewood eight-foot buffer zone that prohibits pro-life speech near abortion facilities. Applying the U.S. Supreme Court’s unanimous 2014 opinion in McCullen v. Coakley, which held unconstitutional an identically worded Massachusetts buffer zone law, the New Jersey court ruled the ordinance violates the First Amendment. The […]

Protesters should adopt babies and save lives.

 

Some do. But why should they? It's the responsablity of the mothers who got pregnant to take care of their children.

I like what Keith Green's wife Melody had to say on Pro-Life Sunday a year or two ago:

"A baby is cradled / carried in the womb of it's mother, to grow and be nurtured until birth. Each baby is a wholly separate person from it's mother: With different DNA, different fingerprints, with possibly a different blood type or the opposite sex. The baby is a person living within a person and not "the mother's body". The mom is appointed to care for the separate life she carries within her and once it's born, find a home for her baby, if she can't provide one." -- Melody Green

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Because they feel that lives should be saved, regardless of the mothers wishes. You can't justify murder with your desire to change the mothers support.

Murder is murder, and lives will be saved if all babies are adopted.

Lives should be saved regardless of the mothers wishes, because she's wrong. Pro life protesters have every right to demand that mother's not kill their children, whether or not the protesters adopt or not it's the mothers job to be mothers.

 

What does justifying murder have anything to do with this?

 

All those babies can't be adopted.

If you want to save lives, then you will adopt all babies so there is a long waiting list and every women will have a wanted child.

Then, the only job of pro-life people is to inform everyone that all babies are wanted and loved.

That's why the pro-life message is so ineffective.

"Abortions is murder! ( But we don't want your kid either, lady)"

We adopted our now 18 yr old son as an infant. In fact, we were there for his birth :RpS_smile: At that time, there was approximately one baby available for every 100 approved families who wanted to adopt one (in the US). The numbers haven't changed much since then unfortunately, which just means that there are still far more families out there wanting to adopt than we have babies available for them to adopt.

But all babies can not be adopted, it makes no difference how much pro lifers obviously care about and would happily take care of them. The pro life message has been affective, any success definitely counts.

Of course you will miss some adoptions and the babies will remain with unloving parents.

God only can control that.
