I was planning to write this post in support of those walking in the Annual March for Life in Washington D.C, but with recent events they have transpired during this week and last, I feel compelled to say that I still stand with those who feel like life is precious.
So, you could say that I’m pro-life.
The reason is a simple one for me: I was raised in an Irish Roman Catholic home, and it’s something that I’m proud to say that I still am a Roman Catholic to this day. I may not show it outside, until today, but it’s not what’s outside that matters, it’s all about practicing what you preach inside and out. I’m here to admit that even though I don’t know the Bible chapter and verse, my morals can best be described by three words: Faith, Hope and Charity.
The reason I have hope is because of my faith, which helped me feel like I can be a better person; my charity is shown in my volunteering efforts, my desire to pay it forward to others less fortunate. But I’m also a lector at my local Church and also am part of a wonderful family known as Cursillo, which makes me making this confession necessary due to recent events, namely how Albany has endorsed abortion rights within New York State, that reinforce what Roe V. Wade started 46 years ago.
I understand that this might be an unpopular decision for me to make but I also realize that my faith means just as much to me as I want to connect people to resources that can help them, not hurt them in any way.
