But I am here to be a passionate voice for the unborn and truth. Why? Because I know first hand the devastating affect the choice of abortion is. I must point out that when you support an organization that funds studies on embryonic stem cell research they are getting those cells from an aborted baby. I won't link the site but you can go to the clinical trials site and read it in plain English. They tell you exactly where the source of those stem cells came from.
The thing about the abortion agenda is that it uses social consciousness to fuel it's business. It will show you the young girl that died using a wire hanger for a self-performed abortion, it will show you people in wheelchairs with various neurological issues, it will claim that women's health is threatened and on and on and on. I am asking you to be wise when you donate your resources. Do your homework. Find out where those resources are going or better yet, ask if you can designate them! If you want to take a stand, take a stand, but be authentic about injustice and compassion. Don't turn a blind eye and be compassionate for some and not for others. The life of one human should not be made comfortable because of the death of another human!
However, that being said, I also don't want to turn a blind eye to people who are physically suffering either.
Editors Note: Over the last few days I have thought a lot about what genuine and authentic compassion is for others and if I am practicing it or not. By being outspoken about things that are important to me, do I risk seeming to be totally uncaring to someone else? And whether I personally agree with funding methods or not, does it further isolate people looking for answers? Because the truth is, I want those who have felt overlooked to be able to have hope, not just the hope of maybe finding a cure someday, but hope that people genuinely care now. There are some pretty awesome sites out there that will let you coordinate meals, housework, shopping, etc - very real present physical needs, that are often overlooked in lieu of a quick monetary donation. I'll list some at the bottom and I encourage you to search for more. Most of them hinge on you knowing someone struggling with an illness or life changing event. Even if I don't personally know anyone, can I still bring some hope and healing without compromising my convictions? I think so - by being a little bit more aware, and being a little bit more active than I am at present in the areas close to me that I can participate in - walking for an organization that directly gives those funds to individuals, volunteering my time and services to people needing help in everyday activities, praying with an individual on behalf of their healing need.
Lastly, perhaps if I called an organization to say, I want to help those living with an illness by ministering to their needs but am requesting that you stop doing studies that include embryonic stem cell research, I would actually see some real changes for the better happening, for what I believe in standing up for and also being genuine about my compassion for people.
That to me, is real activism.
