After the election, now what?

In light of President Obama's re-election, our pro-life efforts must be redoubled at the state and individual level. The abortion debate in this election cycle was over the 1% of abortions due to rape, mostly ignoring the reality of abortion as birth control and abortion forced on women who feel they have no choice. The reality of abortion was successfully kept off the table by the mainstream media.

We must keep educating, imploring, and arousing the people to the moral and ethical necessity of protecting all innocent human life. Our laws and our leaders reflect the morality of our people--or at least the lowest common denominator of our morality as a people. When the people demand protection of the unborn, the politicians will comply.

The type of moral transformation we need requires more than just awareness and education, which are essential. It also requires a true moral and spiritual awakening which comes only through deep penitence and prayer. The path open to us is not one of political power (although we must not give up in that arena either). It is one of personal piety and pouring ourselves out for the victims of abortion, born and unborn.

Wesley Wilson is the President of Let Me Live, a nonprofit dedicated to saving babies by showing the beauty and value of life to women considering abortion. Please learn more about the Let Me Live pro-life billboard campaign. Donations are tax deductible. Please connect with us on Facebook.
