When a woman becomes pregnant, she becomes a mother. This isn’t a political statement, and it’s not a complicated philosophical or theological idea. It is recognition of what has happened biologically: a new life has come into existence, and a woman has become the mother of a rapidly developing human person.
What, then, is there left to debate politically, societally, or culturally? In a healthy society, the only thing to debate when a woman becomes a mother, especially if it happens unexpectedly, or in a potential situation of abuse, homelessness, deprivation, etc., is how our whole society will respond in love and support of that mother. In a healthy society, the natural thing to do would be to create and provide a complete set of life-affirming solutions and choices for that mother that would help her and her child to live and thrive when her child is born.
Of course, we at the Pro-Life Union have been striving to provide mothers with life-affirming solutions and choices for nearly 50 years. Women (and men) need to hear, “We will help, you’re not alone.” We offer counseling, financial assistance, material aid, educational resources, housing, support and love.
As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we invite you to join us by increasing your existing level of support and commitment, even if only by a few extra hours of volunteering or by a few extra dollars. And we encourage you to intentionally reach out to one friend or family member to ask them to do the same.
