For decades radical feminism has beaten men into submission. This is extremely prevalent within the abortion sphere. Men are told that the baby is not theirs, but is only the woman’s. After all, only wanted babies belong to the mothers AND the fathers. Men are told that they should support a woman in murdering their child, because he should be enlightened and show women the respect they supposedly did not get pre-1960. That’s right, the respectful thing to do is to knock a girl up and then drive her to the abortion clinic. Do I think that this is how most women, who are scared and do not know what to do, feel when they decide to go visit the local abortion clinic? No. Rather this is the face of big abortion and radical feminism. It is not the face of the young college student who is terrified from the positive pregnancy test, or the teenage girl who is forced by her parents to get an abortion, or the older man who takes his underage girlfriend to get rid of the evidence, the couple who is terrified of having a child, the woman who is in an abusive relationship, or the poor woman who is just trying to make ends meet. In fact, I would guess that a lot of these women want the men in their lives to stand up for them, tell them they will support them and their child, and that everything is going to work out. And for the women who are victims, what they need is someone to help them, not kill their child.
Men, we need you to speak out. We need you to take care of the women you are in a relationship with. We need you to man up. We also need you to take your place on the side of life. We need ALL men to stand up, whether you have been personally touched by abortion or not. We have all be touched by abortion, 1/6th of our country is missing and has been killed since 1973. This is not just a “women’s rights” issue, this is a human rights issue. Over a billion men worldwide have lost fatherhood thanks to abortion. 55 million and counting have lost fatherhood in this country alone. You have a right to stand up and say”no”. More than that, you should witness to these women and show them what it looks like to be a real man: a provider, brave, strong, a man of God.
We need you to be praying with us outside of abortion clinics during 40 Days for Life. We need young men (including teenagers and children), middle aged, and older. We need all of you to show the world that fatherhood should not be tossed aside. That murdering children and future generations is not acceptable in the false name of equality. That God created male and female in the image and likeness of God, each with a unique dignity.
Today, my daughter and I went out to join our parish Knights of Columbus in praying a living Rosary. It was a powerful witness to Divine Love, mercy, and the Culture of Life. We had men, women, teenagers, and a toddler asking Our Lady and Our Lord to convert souls and to bring healing and strength to these families who are torn apart by the scourge and lie of abortion. I have met the courageous men who pray with me outside of our local Planned Parenthood. I greatly admire them. They have not bought the lie of the secular culture. Instead they stand in front of the world and declare that they have a voice. They pray for these women, men, and babies who are hurt and destroyed each day. These are the real men of our age. Please come join us! Be courageous! Be for LIFE!
