My wonderfully wise wife just now shared this video with me.
If this video makes you think that it's dreadful to try to steal the thunder of the gun control movement to make a statement about abortion, then I invite you to consider that 48 million human persons have lost their lives to induced abortion in the U.S. alone since 1970. This is fourfold as many brutalized innocents as the number of Africans subjected to the Middle Passage, and eightfold as many as the number of Jews murdered in the Shoah).
If this video makes you think, "Right on, abortion is the real issue, not guns," then I invite you to consider that that there are over 30,000 gun deaths annually in the United States, making guns one of the ten leading causes of American death. Every one of these victims (even those engaged in criminality) of gun violence is as much a cherished child of the Father as any unborn innocent. Thus, both common-sense and less obvious measures, none of which involve undue inconvenience to hunters, target shooters, and those seeking personal and home defense, ought to be taken.
A culture of life really ought to be a seamless garment. Whichever of these two issues (abortion, guns) strikes you as the "real" life issue, I ask you to consider whether a consistent ethic of respect for every human life would join them together.
