Pro-Life Baby Showers

I have a number of online friends who are or have been very involved in pro-life activities.
Some go on the front lines of evangelizing and pleading at abortion clinics.
Lives have been saved, and the Gospel proclaimed.
More people are needed to participate in these things on a regular basis.
If you are unable to physically get involved, you can give (if you are able) and pray for those who do go.

Many people could be doing something, and yet they go no further than simply voting pro-life.

Some people accuse those who are pro-life of not caring about babies once they are born.
This is a false charge.

Sometimes women get ultrasounds, counseling, and the Gospel as well as further help at Christian women centers, though this is becoming more difficult in places that want the pregnancy resource centers to give murder options, etc.
Some of these pro-life places give help with clothes and other items which can be donated - along with the giving of referrals for community help.

Many pro-life people have adopted kids.
I have seen a video where a gift bag was given to someone who chose life.
I'm sure there is so much more that goes on than I even know about.
Pro-life people give to organizations that provide food for the needy, etc.

Love is also shown to those who have had abortions by proclaiming the Gospel to them and by the counseling of repentant women who still struggle.

Yet it is true that more could be done, but accusers are really only looking for a reason to excuse the murdering of helpless babies.

This brings me to why I'm writing this:
Have you ever thought about having a baby shower for someone who has chosen to keep their baby?
One of my online friends is helping with one, and I think it's a great idea!

Having babies and providing for them is costly.  While adopting a child out can sometimes be a wise choice, I believe in most cases it is emotionally difficult.
I think it's a wonderful thing to go a step further in showing love in a special way by helping with the early needs of those who have chosen to keep their babies to raise.
If you haven't thought about it before, then I hope this will encourage and challenge you to think of more ways that you might be active in helping the helpless and those in need that others may reject.

So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.  
Galatians 6:10

This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
James 1:27
