Pro-Adoption Pence

October 9, 2016

Haven and Grace’s birth mothers chose adoption over abortion.

That’s why they’re here today.

As someone who has been blessed immensely and immeasurably from those two decisions, I found myself wanting to stand up and cheer as I listened to Mike Pence during the vice presidential debate earlier this week!

He spoke eloquently about many things, but my favorite moment came toward the end of the debate when he said these words:

“God says before you were formed in the womb He knew you, so I seek to stand with great compassion for the sanctity of life. Society will be judged by how it defends its most vulnerable – the aged, the infirm, the disabled, and the unborn. In Indiana, we have sought to expand alternatives and healthcare counseling for women – non-abortion alternatives. We are well on our way in Indiana to becoming the most pro-adoption state in America. If you’re pro-life, you should also be pro-adoption. Like Mother Teresa said, let’s the welcome the children into the world.”

Pence was outstanding throughout the debate.
He spoke respectfully to his opponent.
He spoke eloquently about his faith.
He spoke out against abortion, and promoted adoption.

During an election season full of hot air – from both sides of the fence – I find him to be a much-needed breath of fresh air.

On behalf of Grace and Haven, I’m grateful to him for his outspoken promotion of adoption and condemnation of abortion.  And I’m grateful that he recognizes the dignity of all human lives, including the precious ones that are still in the womb.
