Mid-Week Challenge

 Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app that you could add to your internet browser that would convert anything you find offensive to something more to your liking?  Wait no more, at least if you are “pro-choice!”

 A pro-choice computer programmer has created a Google extension called “Choice Language” that will change the term “pro-life” to “anti-choice” in the raw text of websites.  So anywhere the word “pro-life” appears in a website it will be changed to “anti-choice.” “Why do we need something like this,” you ask?  The need is there because abortion supporters find the term “pro-life” to be offensive because it suggests that because they support abortion they are “anti-life.”  Confused? Isn’t that what abortion is, anti-life? 

 Andrea Miller, the president the National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund says no! Miller’s group did not create the new program but they are in full support of it.  She says, “The term ‘pro-life’ is inaccurate in this argument – although it is a powerful tool in the fight against women’s health rights – as it serves to demonize individuals who are pro-choice by suggesting that in their support of a woman’s right to choose what is best for her own life, they also advocate for death in some way.”

 Maybe she should go back and reread her own statement.  Abortion results in death so those who are pro-choice must be advocates for death, right?  What is interesting is what she said leading up to her comment on death.  In praising the anonymous writer of the program Miller said, “We agreed with her that the language in this discussion really matters.”

 She is right, language does matter!  That is why the term “pro-life” is so important in coming to a real understanding of what actually takes place when a woman has an abortion, life is destroyed.  I understand why these folks want the term changed but simply changing the term does not change what takes place.  Sin is offensive.  What is more offensive is when we try to cover or dress it up to make ourselves feel better.

 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.  Romans 1:32
