David Ripley: Life Chain a Great Success!

Idaho Chooses Life

Many faithful pro-Lifers came out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon to lift signs and prayers for the babies threatened today and tomorrow by abortion. As thousands passed through the Boise Mall, we pleaded with our neighbors to spend a moment with us – calling to heart the silent carnage which daily occurs in Idaho’s Abortion Capitol.

Most people were friendly: many honked, gave a thumbs-up.

Of course not everyone was receptive to our message. One middle-aged woman honked and began yelling out her window at a friend who held a sign, “Take my hand, not my life”. The sign carried a photo of a baby’s hand inside the protective hand of a loving mother.

“I’ve never seen such an offensive sign in all my life! You people should be ashamed! I’m a good Christian and I am totally offended!”

We’ll assume she is, in fact, a good Christian. And we are certainly safe in believing that she was offended by the photo and message. The question remains, “Why?”

One can only speculate, of course. But the odds are extraordinarily high that she is one of those women deeply wounded by abortion – hers, or that of a loved one. It is easier to strike out in anger than it is to look at the pain and take responsibility for whatever decisions she has made in the past. The Lord of Us All paid the price for whatever sin this woman committed; but the healing He offers is more complex. The defenses of anger and blame will have to be eroded by His love so that He can reach down into that deep place and stop the bleeding. There is no doubt that He is at work in her life even as this update is posted.

We can trust that our annual foray to the Boise Mall is a fruitful opportunity for the Lord to touch hearts. In cases such as this, perhaps that touch feels more like a prick of the conscience.

We ask for the Lord’s complete healing of that woman. And His blessing of all the faithful who took the time to stand with us.
