In the midst of the heated battle of pro-life and pro-choice, we hear a familiar conversation played again and again in a loop.

“I believe life begins in the womb, therefore I believe abortion is murder.”

“Well, how many children have you adopted?

The argument takes a quick turn to child welfare; can you imagine how quickly a mouth would shut and ears would open if the pro-lifer replied,


Actions truly speak louder than words. People want to see their opponent back up their statement with action. Jesus said it this way,

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Child welfare is the Achilles heel of many pro-lifers. If there is no action behind our belief our voice will be squandered by a foghorn of mockery from the Left. It makes you angry, does it not? Your blood starts to boil and your heart rate spikes, but you don’t have any verbal ammunition left.

One of the best examples of a “belief grounded in action principle” is seen in the gun debate. We find a pundit from a liberal media outlet (so every news station) advocating stricter gun laws. The only worthy opponent is the pro-gun veteran, who grabs the microphone and thumps the pundit on the head and makes his pro second amendment case. Now, not every veteran advocates for gun rights, but those who do have the stand.

Why are veteran’s opinion highly respected?

Their actions speak louder than their words. One who gave up their self, who sacrificed, has earned the right to speak.
