To my fellow believers who are saddened and upset by Roe’s reversal, I encourage you to reconsider what abortion actually is. Have you forgotten the brutality of it? Have you forgotten that our unborn neighbors have no avenue of defense while a doctor goes into the womb and tears apart their little body until there is no life left?

As many people respond to this decision in anger, rage, and fear, may our witness and conversations display peace, civility, compassion, and support for every human being because every human being matters.

The importance of having conversations and changing hearts and minds on this issue is just as important now as it was before this news.
