Pro-lifer on pro-lifers: We believe in God's grace for all

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security declassified a report that reportedly claims abortion opponents and abortion supporters are violent extremists but no specific organizations on either side of the issue were listed.

That's because the real reference was to individuals.

Laura Echevarria of the National Right to Life Committee tells One News Now there have been individuals who claim to be pro-life but really are not and do commit violent acts.

“Historically, what we do know is that people who have acted out violently, and say that they're called pro-life or something like, that they're never part of the mainstream pro-life movement,” she insists.

Instead, she adds, they are “disturbed” people who hurt a peaceful cause. 

For those who are part of the pro-life movement, and deal with those who are involved with abortion, there is an important principle at work.

"God's grace cannot be extended to someone if they die," Echevarria says. "So if someone is harmed in the course of someone performing some kind of violent act, Jesus' blood on the cross cannot cover that person because they're dead now, and so you've cut off their ability to repent."

That is why pro-lifers who gather around abortion clinics peacefully counsel women seeking an abortion and also spend time in prayer, not just for the mother, but for the salvation of clinic workers.
