The overturning of Roe v. Wade has given the pro-life movement renewed motivation to continue speaking about the necessity of protecting unborn life. But those who oppose the overturning of Roe and support legalized abortion will often cite difficult circumstances such as rape, incest, or the presence of a prenatal diagnosis as proof that abortion is sometimes justifiable or even the only solution. However, even difficult circumstances such as these are not sufficient justification for rejecting the innate human dignity of an unborn child.
Conversations about abortions in difficult circumstances can often be emotionally charged and influenced by personal experiences with trauma. But if we equip ourselves with knowledge and compassion, we will be better prepared to navigate such conversations and lovingly change hearts and minds to see the value of unborn life.
