Evangelicals (if that word has any meaning), for God's sake, please wake up and remember the acres of tiny corpses you cannot see. Yes, the Christian social vision is holistic. We should endeavor to restore shalom to this beleaguered planet. That includes helping Africa, preserving the environment, and much more.

One pro-choicer (who I believe is from England) writes about her frustrations with certain actions by other pro-choicers at a recent pro-choice demonstration.
Telling the opposition what they think and getting it wrong does not help the cause. It makes us look stupid and vindictive. We don't appreciate it when they do it to us so we shouldn't do it to them.
We need to be a movement that understands what pro lifers actualy think so we can refute their actual arguments and not straw ones, we need to be a movement that doesnt use the tactics of the status quo to try and get people to change.We need to be a movement that doesnt automaticaly write pro lifers off as nasty/evil/woman hating
