I applaud Mark for his laudable actions but pray that he fulfills his commitment to “save” the innocent life by making the necessary (and long-term) sacrifices needed in order to ensure that the physical, emotion and spiritual needs of the child will be met. Though I believe abortion is wrong, I also believe that a half-hearted response without necessary follow-up is even more offensive. As Christians, we cannot only advocate the saving of innocent lives, more importantly we must equally voice the need to provide for life created. Lastly, this dialogue must be complemented with a full understanding of the socio-economic correlations that define abortion in America. This understanding will force us to ask the question, “Why are low-income urban minorities more likely to have an abortion then their affluent Caucasian counterparts?” And more importantly, “What can we do, as the Body of Christ, to ameliorate this disproportionate reality?” Abortion is only a symptom of a greater economic/political/cultural problem that the church must address.
