First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.
I was mulling the pro-life movement’s engagement this weekend. Our message isn’t being ignored. Pro-life stories and the abortion debate are all over the news. Our message is ridiculed by some and others are, well, “fighting” us, I guess you could say.
We are winning hearts and minds, one person at a time. If Gandhi’s stages are correct, I’d say we’re hovering between stages three and four.
So what’s a “win”? For PWPL, it’s a desire “to bring an end to abortion, not by coercion, but by choice.” For others, it’s via legislation, restricting abortion.
Food for thought.
