What does it mean to be “pro-life?”
Faithwire received a wide range of responses when we ventured out last year to ask — perspectives that extended well beyond peoples’ mere opposition to abortion.
In fact, interviewees said that being pro-life means valuing life “womb to tomb.”
“Recognizing each person’s potential for life,” one marcher offered up. Another added that pro-life means, “A commitment to nonviolence … towards those who are incapable of defending themselves.”
Some provided a clear distinction in framing the definition, affirming that, while abortion is a pro-life concern, the definition extends well beyond that paradigm.
“It’s about all life … from conception to natural death,” another marcher proclaimed.
