Like the word “Christian”, the word “pro-life” has grown to have a very negative connotation in our culture, probably because a bunch of idiots use them to describe themselves when they are nothing like what the words should mean.

When I say I’m a Christian I mean that I try to be like Christ. I try to love everyone, especially the “least of these” which includes children and minorities. To be quite honest, the people I have the most difficulty loving are the type of self-righteous pricks who tend to make Christians look bad.

When I say I’m pro-life I mean that I’m in favour of life. All life. I am against anything that might take away anyone’s rights, whether that be to life, to freedom, or to be themselves in every way they can be.

I cannot have a child of my own, and it breaks my heart when a child is unwanted. I would take all the unwanted children in if I had the means to do so. I would love them all.

I am pro-love, pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-people. I would never presume to tell someone what to choose, but my heart weeps when that choice is death.

Poet, lover, thinker, human.
