Planned Parenthood videos provide chance to change minds on abortion

Yes, please.

In my first op/ed piece for IJ Review, I discuss my time as a pro-choice liberal (which I’ve written about some here in the past) and how I eventually had a change of heart and began advocating pro-life policies that protect unborn life instead of destroying it. And how, with the release of the disturbing, gruesome undercover Planned Parenthood videos, we can use the opportunities they present to change hearts and minds. An excerpt:

Ignore the militant activists, and talk to average abortion supporters whose lives – and livelihoods – don’t revolve around abortion. Do one-on-one work with them. Be patient with the ones who seem genuinely interested in having the discussion. Don’t get upset when they ask a question that might seem obvious or annoy you. And don’t get discouraged if it seems like what you’re telling them isn’t getting through. The likelihood of someone telling you they’ve had a change of heart because of what you’ve said to them is slim to none. Your part in it isn’t to try and force someone to believe anything or think a certain way, but to merely plant the seeds in their minds that will make them curious enough they’ll begin to do their own research. And maybe one day your efforts will pay off, like my college acquaintance’s efforts at changing my mind paid off with me.

Now is the time. We can do this!

    Have you ever noticed that those who crow the loudest in favor of abortion have already been born? And the people who protest so vociferously against capital punishment and the plight of the condemned are the very same ones at the head of abortion advocacy?

  2. TomTB says:

    Unborn babies can be operated on while still in the womb, to correct conditions before birth.
    If that’s not enough to get people to rethink their view of abortion, I don’t know what ever would be.
