RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Pastor, author, nationally syndicated radio host and founder of Harvest America, Greg Laurie issues the following statement in honor of today’s March for Life in Washington, D.C.:
“Christians are all too often known as a people of ‘no’ and ‘don’t’, when in reality, we should be most famous for the ‘yes’ of God in our lives. The March for Life is an important event that reaffirms God’s ‘yes’ over all human life, at all stages and ages, starting at conception. I for one am here today because a woman named Charlene McDaniel decided to say yes to my life when she was a young, single mother who got pregnant out of wedlock.
“Just the other day a young, single woman came up to me holding her beautiful twenty-month old daughter. When she was pregnant, she had planned to get an abortion, but then heard me speaking on the radio where I mentioned that abortion was wrong. By the end of the program she prayed and asked Jesus to forgive her and come into her heart. She decided to have her baby. She was so glad she did.
“In America, we’ve been living with Roe v. Wade for 45 years now, and approximately 60 million preborn babies have been lost their lives as a result. Let’s join together, all across this nation, in solidarity with our brothers and sisters marching in Washington, and collectively as a nation say ‘yes’ to God once again.”
