“Are they doing anything about it?”
by Kendra Wright
Who needs to see abortion photos? Everyone? Even those that are already pro-life?
This point can seem confusing. If you already believe something, you don’t need to be convinced of it. Right?
Yet, it is clear that Christians are doing almost nothing to stop the killing in the culture. They are even killing their own children at staggering rates. One in five women who abort identifies herself as a born-again or evangelical Christian.
Secular universities devote massive resources to training advocates for the abortion industry, but Christian universities like Liberty University have zero training programs to prepare Christians students for the pro-life mission field. Zip, zero, nada.
In fact, Liberty has even forbidden pro-life students from displaying abortion victim photos on campus.
It is a tragedy every time a savable baby at Liberty is killed by abortion. But CBR is working to change all that.
Beth Fox is one Liberty student who is willing to stand up and be counted. On several occasions, Beth, (CBR Project Director) Maggie Egger, and I have stood in front of the Liberty library with a sign showing an abortion victim photo. The sign first asks if Jesus would use a bloody picture, then answers that question with a picture of the Crucifixion.
Many student studied this sign and discussed it with their friends as they walked by. Two students that gave us a thumbs up.
As we were packing up to leave, a professor came up and asked why we were there. He wasn’t against the use of the pictures, but he was confused about their use at Liberty. He asked, “But why are you here on a Christian campus? Isn’t everybody here already pro-life?”
Maggie stopped him with her reply, “Are they doing anything about it?”
Good question. The pictures challenge Christian complacency.
