Are you pro-woman?

Here are some great thoughts from Fr. Frank Pavone (video below) on how being pro-woman means being pro-life. Being pro-life means supporting both the baby and the mother.

I especially like his point on the connection between mother and baby.  He says, “the destiny and the dignity of mother and child are inextricably linked. You can’t love one without loving the other. You can’t serve one without serving the other. And you can’t harm one without harming the other.”

Many people believe that pro-lifers put the baby’s life ahead of the mother’s. This is incorrect. We say why can’t we love them both?  Check out the video:

This is absolutely true.
While I suppose, it may be possible that a person purporting to be pro-life loves the child/hates the mother, I’ve never met one. It would be a twisted way to view the world, indeed. They wouldn’t really be pro-LIFE then, would they?
He doesn’t say it, but I think the reverse may be extended to the “choicers”: hate the child means hate the mother; kill the child means spiritually, and occasionally physically, kill the mother. It’s sad how people lie to themselves and others.
