Abortion dehumanizes, whereas the Holy Spirit inspires

pro-lifer reading BibleAn uptick in violence and harassment of pro-life volunteers, especially at abortion clinics, will not keep them from striving to convince women who are seeking abortions to allow their babies to live.

The National Catholic Register has documented the increase in violence, aggressive behavior, threats of violence, and filthy language used by abortion advocates against pro-lifers. OneNewsNow spoke with Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League, who blames it in part on the nature of abortion.

"Abortion is based on dehumanizing the unborn child – a member of the human family at [his or her] most vulnerable stage who we've decided to factor out, as a matter of law, from the human community," he explains. "And that sort of becomes a lesson for our whole society: that we can dehumanize [the unborn] – strip away the humanity, the right to life, the right to respect, the right to civil rights of other people."

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)Another factor, he contends, is that the Obama administration, which stood strong for abortion, is now gone and a pro-life administration is in place – so abortion doesn't reign supreme in Washington.

Scheidler says pro-life volunteers won't give up. "We have the Holy Spirit there with us, giving us the grace that we need, inspiring us – and our opponents don't have that," he states. "They don't have that inspiration, that indwelling of the Holy Spirit that comes from above that gives us the strength to be out there.

"So over the long haul we will weather the storm," he concludes, "but I expect to see the pro-life movement continuing to consistently get out there and really own the grassroots on this issue."

In short, says the pro-life spokesman, saving the lives of the preborn far outweighs any abuse from the opposition.
