However, now that abortions are going to be harder to get in some states I worry about those babies and mothers. Historically the pro life community has done a better job fighting for the unborn than they have fighting for babies once they are born. As a pro-lifer it is my belief that we must do everything we can do to fight for the unborn AND for the born. A lot of these women are in such vulnerable situations. One in which bringing a baby into the world is unthinkable. Worlds of fatherlessness. Worlds of drug abuse. Worlds of physical and emotional abuse/trauma. The church needs to be at the forefront in helping these women/babies. Now, more than ever before. Some churches are but collectively as the church in America we have fallen short. We vote for people who actively fight against providing funding programs that support these vulnerable people. Neither political party as a whole really does a great job here but if they actually worked together on this then something could be done but this is where the church should be a the forefront. Helping the most vulnerable as Jesus did. There are some great organizations out there. Give your time money and energy into those as you have fighting for the unborn.
My 2 cents. Now back to your regularly scheduled Sunday.
Sorry this tripe is trotted out all the time. There are over 10 billion dollars a year given by private individuals to aid and support mothers who have their children through various avenues. There is hardly a mother who doesn't have somewhere they can turn to if they truly make an attempt. The idea that people don't care about the baby after its born is absolutely absurd. They did a study of support systems that exist for these mothers and found it to be in most areas very adequate and available. More can always be done, sure, but just because people don't want the government taking care of it, doesnt' mean people don't care.
Illinois foster care system (which we are a part of) overwhelmingly is a majority of christian households. and that is Illinois.
as I said, more can always be done. The above information we knew before we involved ourselves. do what you can.
