During a recent pro-life rally at the Alabama capitol building, Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation talked about the value of every life as he shared his story of being conceived in rape, but being adopted into a large, loving family and now being an adoptive father himself.
“The circumstances of our conception don’t change the condition of our worth,” he declared to those gathered. “Some say that I should have been aborted. At least that’s what the world says about people with stories like mine. See, I’m the one percent that’s used 100 percent of the time to justify abortion.”
Bomberger said that the very reason he is able to stand before the world and be a voice for life is because his mother didn’t have him murdered.
“My birth mom experienced the horror and violence of rape, but rejected the further violence of abortion,” he noted. “That’s why I’m actually here today to be able to speak about the dignity of every human life. I am alive today because of a courageous birth mom. She chose to be stronger than her circumstances. ”
“We all can be stronger than our circumstances — no matter what the crisis, no matter what the issue,” Bombarger exhorted.
He shared that in being adopted, he grew up with 12 siblings in a Christian household that adopted a number of children who needed a forever family.
“I have six brothers and six sisters. 10 of us were adopted. [We are a] multi-racial family,” Bombarger outlined, then quipped, “My parents are the pro-lifers who don’t care about people after they’re born.”
It is a common argument among “pro-choice” advocates that pro-life Americans are only pro-birth.
“Pro-lifers are the ones who care about people after they’re born. Amen?” he declared. “See, the thing is, when you love Jesus, the natural outflow of loving Jesus is loving people, and sacrificing what you need to sacrifice — sacrificing yourself, so that you can bring what was once broken to wholeness.”
