i am pro-life because i believe in and support life and through life, love. because that’s what i believe life is: a visible and active loving of other people and the world around you. it’s difficult and i rarely achieve that on a day-to-day basis, but that’s my belief.
that is not to say that those who aren’t pro-life don’t support love or people. actually, i think it’s quite the opposite; from their perspective, a completely valid perspective that i can appreciate, they are directly supporting life and love through supporting women and their right to choose.
but this is about my perspective. and what i want to say is this: if you call yourself pro-life then attack those who disagree with you, you are not pro-life at all. because your actions and your negative, destructive, mean comments are injuring that person’s life. we all know that words have an impact and whether that impact is a glancing blow or a deep, lasting bruise, it matters. so think before you respond or askbox or comment. and think about the fact that being pro-life or, really, just being a decent human being means you need to actively work to eradicate hate and hate speech from your thinking and thus from your doing.
Stop. the. presses.
Is this an actual classy and not stupidly offensive pro-life post?
Has hell frozen over?
(Other tumblr pro-lifers, take note. Actually, just everybody take note.)
Holy crap! It’s like we’ve spotted a goddamn unicorn.
Reblogging because I fear that OP might suffer retaliation and I hope there are lots of positive reblogs in their support.
