Here is a link to my latest column in the Knoxville News-Sentinel: http://knoxnews.com/news/2008/feb/03/consistency/. It is about the need for those of us who are pro-life to be consistent. I will probably get some e-mails about this one–both positive and negative. It is a touchy subject, but one that needs to be addressed.
Basically, I feel that it is not enough to say that babies should not be aborted. Pro-lifers also must consider what to do with the children once they are born and how to help people who are in all stages of life.
One thing that I did not address in the column is how often we are manipulated by one politician or another by pro-life rhetoric only to see later that the politician did not back up his/her promises. It seemingly happens all of the time.
Please feel free to comment.
