I have been a pro-life activist for about 7 years and I have never witnessed the kind of malice and blatant disrespect towards pro-life activists are there are now. I posted a picture on my Instagram of myself at a pro-life rally recently and received a comment simply saying “electric chair” implying that I deserved to be killed for my beliefs. Of course, they probably didn’t mean it literally but it’s still insanely disrespected. I have never looked at a pro-abortion advocate and wish them any kind of harm.
These pro-abortion advocates consistently throw hate, names, accusations, and truly foul language at pro-life advocates.
We hear everything from:
“I wish you had been aborted”
“You should’ve been aborted”
“Your mom made a mistake for not aborting you”
“Is it too late to abort you now?”
“I hope you get raped so you understand what it’s like to be in this situation”
“I hope you find yourself young, pregnant, and poor one day.”
They say that pro-lifers, specifically Christians, are only pro-birth and that we don’t care about a baby after he or she is born…even though Christians give the most in donations and many of either volunteer or donate to women’s crisis centers. I don’t know a single pro-lifer who is pro-life in name only. We all do our part to save both mother and baby.
But you threatening us, hurting us, breaking our things, and yelling in our faces only makes us feel more empowered. We are stronger than your words, we are stronger than your bullying. Every time you try to tear down one of us, two more pop up beside us. Us pro-lifers aren’t going away. We are fighting for the right for children to be born. We are fighting for everyone’s right at a chance at life.
