Get A Life! Right to Life Rally in Bozeman
This past week I attended two pro-life events in Bozeman. You might say, “Henry, with all that you do, don’t you need to do something else?” You mean, shouldn’t I get a life. That’s precisely why I went. I attended a Thursday evening program in support of Zoe Women’s Services which featured Kirk Walden, an inspirational Christian speaker at The Commons, west of town and better known as the home of Journey Church, a great venue. Walden talked about the growing numbers of pregnancy centers around the country and, how, through the dedicated efforts of good people, many are choosing life. In fact, the numbers of pregnancy centers are on the rise while abortion clinic numbers are on the decline. Despite being vastly out-funded (Planned Parenthood received one-half billion of taxpayer funds) these pregnancy centers do remarkable work offering options to women, many of them young, without any judgment. Perhaps the most telling presentation was from Dr. Gabor Benda, Zoe’s volunteer medical director. Dr. Benda spoke of his interaction at Montana State University with students “concerned” about pregnancy centers. Even some pro-abortion advocates who engaged in dialogue with Dr. Benda expressed concern about the impact of abortions and left with a better understanding of what Zoe does for the community.
On Saturday, I attended the MSU Students For Life rally commemorating the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Nearly 400 people showed up for the rally and walked on Main Street. What an amazing turnout and a great event organized and led by young people! There is hope.
If you are pro-life, Zoe is a group you can support without hesitation. You know I believe in political activism but you have to wonder how many lives would have been saved had more people invested in places like Zoe rather than only political activism.
