Looking for opinions

by nikkilehman2013

I watched this video tonight and felt totally disturbed. It is produced by an anti-abortion group and documents their attempt to expose the truths of abortion.

Honestly, it just makes me feel very confused. When I was in school and learning about atrocities in history, I always envisioned myself as a player for justice. I pictured that I might be a part of the underground railroad or engaged in the fight to introduce child labor laws. I just knew in my young heart that I was too motivated by truth to not be a involved in justice.

So abortion leaves me feeling restless. I don’t think abortion is murder, I know it is murder. But when I look at these activists, my heart is not stirred to join the cause. Is this how we fight for life? Is this what advocacy and historical change looks like?

I’m honestly looking for opinions. Is my heart not stirred to this because there is another way? Or is this behavior bizarre to me because I am naive to the cost of change. Ignorant to what is required to move society.

And if there is another way, what is it? I don’t want to stand by as history plays out. I don’t want to be silent or do nothing. Any opinions?
