Back in January Jon Bloom of Desiring God Ministries wrote an article entitled Relentlessly Call Abortion What It Really Is, in which he reminds us that:

Abortion is rarely talked about.

I’m not talking about the word “abortion.” We hear this word a lot in the public square. But we rarely hear about it. Abortion almost always refers to something else. We hear that abortion is fundamentally about a woman’s right to reproductive freedom. Or abortion is a litmus test for judicial nominees. Or abortion is symptomatic of what’s wrong with the social discourse in America.

But none of those things is what abortion really is. Abortion is the intentional killing of unborn children.

Then, after reminding us about what abortion really is — It is the murder of unborn children — and reminding us that we can make a difference if we continue to speak the truth about it, Jon goes on to admonish us that “we must keep speaking. We must call abortion what it is: the killing of children and a vicious, established, legalized evil and injustice.”

I highly recommend reading the whole article and prayerfully asking the Lord Jesus for courage to speak the truth as we ought.
