This is another Red Zone post. In the Red Zone, I post content that reflects without hesitation my personal views from the standpoint of my conservative ideology. The main blog on Election Projection puts limits on the conservative perspective I let show in my posts. In the Red Zone, I impose no such limits on myself.
Sister Toldjah, a long-time blogger friend of mine and very smart lady, is living proof. In her first offering for IJ Review, ST recounts her progression from pro-abortion to pro-life. It is a transparent and poignant look at how a college friend gently pointed her in the right direction, and began her change of mind. I highly recommend you head on over and read the whole thing. As she describes it:
They weren’t pushy, but instead asked me why I believed what I did, and when I gave my superficial reasons, they suggested to me that I dig a little deeper, to think about the process involved in the termination of an unborn life. In essence, a light bulb had been switched on.
In the end, Sistah’s mind was changed. And now, staunchly pro-life, she envisions what our nation might would look like if those of us who believe in the right to life of God’s unborn followed her college friend’s example.
If enough people did this, decades down the road we could be looking at a time in our country where only a small percentage of Americans believed it was okay to terminate an innocent unborn life, with the vast majority realizing that the era where millions of babies were lost due to abortion on demand was inexcusable and indefensible, and should never, ever be repeated.
Wouldn’t that be something?
It would be something, indeed.
