The annual March for Life in Washington D.C. on January 27, 2017 was very different from the one a week before.
There weren’t as many news cameras. There weren’t any vulgar signs, hats or costumes. The speakers didn’t go on any profane tirades and it was family friendly.
There was no discussion of blowing up the White House and no one was demanding any special entitlements. They weren’t looking for free birth control, free abortions on demand or free anything. This march wasn’t about them.
The march participants didn’t stand to gain anything for themselves. Their motivations weren’t selfish because they weren’t self-serving. Every single one was marching for the preborn: the helpless and precious children some would not only kill, but want others to pay for it. They were saying, “let them live” and “remember them.”
These two competing points of view is a great dividing line in our culture.
The feminist movement, liberalism, the media, and others have joined forces to shout that these babies don’t deserve a right to even live. They shout, “Give them no chance,” and “give them nothing.” Their callous disregard for not only human life but their own babies is horrifying to truly feminine women. These little ones are labeled no more than a “clump of cells.” Not only that, they are outraged that some of us want these poor aborted ones to at least be cremated or to receive a proper burial instead of being thrown in the trash as “medical waste.”
As Mother Teresa wisely said, “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.” That is not women are their best. It is not reflective of true femininity. Women are at their best when they embrace their feminine power, and they are particularly potent when they stand up for love, life, and relationship.
Margret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood) wrote in her book, “Women and the New Race” (1922): “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” We at Fascinating Womanhood staunchly oppose this evil—for us, our families and our nations. We strongly support the March for Life and all who defend the innocent and the helpless. Especially our infants.
