10 Jun, 2022 Four ways to reverse the culture of death
By Summer Lane
Today more than ever, the children of America are under assault.
Whether these attacks come in the form of the sexually charged LGBTQ agenda or through the screens of popular television shows and movies, kids these days are targeted with radical information on a daily basis.
Perhaps the most egregious and violent attack on American children today, however, is the travesty of abortion. Countless innocent babies are killed every year in the name of a “woman’s choice,” thanks to the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision on Roe v. Wade.
While it’s possible that Roe v. Wade’s ruling could be overturned (a leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court indicated that the court was poised to overturn the decision in May), Christians must understand that the fight for life will always be a battle that is ongoing.
This week, the Counter Culture Mom Show explored the topic of abortion in a series of in-depth interviews with guests who have first-hand knowledge of abortion through their own experiences going through it or fighting against it. Today, we’re going to look at four ways that Christian families can fight back to stop the culture of death in our society today through acts of simple and effective service.
Plug in to church
If your church isn’t involved in fighting against abortion, maybe it’s time to introduce the topic to your pastor! Abortion is the modern-day equivalent to the child sacrifice of the ancient world, and Scripture makes it clear that God condemns it (Deut. 18:10, 2 Kings 16:3, Jeremiah 7:31, etc.). Life News reports that since 1973, over 63 million unborn babies have been ruthlessly slaughtered. It’s hard to wrap our minds around the concept of the bloodshed that has taken place in abortion clinics across the U.S. – but Christians have to face reality: They are at war with an evil narrative that is constantly pushing for the murder of babies.
Churches today have great and largely untapped potential to advocate for prolife legislation and change. Women’s bible studies, for example, are a great place for concerned ladies with a maternal, caring heart to start working to push for legislative reform in their respective states that will protect the unborn.
Support pregnancy crisis centers
Planned Parenthood offers abortions to women, while a good pregnancy crisis center will instead offer support and comfort. According to AAPLOG, there are 2300 pregnancy resource centers in North America, where roughly 3 percent of the world’s 46 million yearly abortions occur.
Pro-life pregnancy crisis centers that are local to your community are integral in providing care to pregnant mothers who have nowhere else to turn. They will give them the medical care and emotional support they need to let them know that their lives, and the lives of their unborn babies, are valuable and unique. These centers do priceless work to further the protection of innocent infants.
Provide women with ultrasounds
It’s a documented fact that when a woman hears her baby’s heartbeat, she is far less likely to choose an abortion. Counter Culture Mom has partnered with PreBorn, a ministry that provides ultrasounds for pregnant mothers. According to PreBorn, 80 percent of moms choose life after meeting their babies on ultrasound! You can donate to this amazing organization to provide a pregnant mom with just a single ultrasound that will encourage them to love and raise their babies!

Don’t be neutral
Abortion is a highly politicized topic, but the issue of abortion is far from political – it’s a moral issue. Put aside the political feelings and focus, always, on the baby. Don’t allow pro-choice advocates to throw a red herring your way and divert attention to the woman’s body – because it’s not about her. It’s about the baby’s body. Women need to be loved and valued and comforted when they are pregnant, but that is no excuse for killing an innocent child who is dependent on their mother’s womb to continue to grow.
Educate yourself and your children (when they are old enough!) on the topic of abortion and be prepared to debate proponents of abortion calmly and lovingly. Point them back to the humanity of the child, the loving grace of Jesus, and the reality that all life, no matter how small, is precious and important.
But whatever you do: don’t be neutral on the topic of abortion! Don’t be afraid to take a stand against the slaying of children. It’s okay to be counterculture!
