The United States mid-term elections may have delivered a Republican majority in the Senate, but it is the pro-life movement which has arguably gained the most from the election.
Pro-life candidates across the country celebrated victories while those holding opposition views on abortion felt the full force of an increasing shift in pro-life attitudes in recent years.
We, in the United Kingdom, could take some lessons from those in the United States. Pro-life Americans are not afraid to express their pro-life views to others, be it in the family, the workplace or on the street. They are not afraid to take their pro-life views to the ballot box and those who are in a position to stand for prominent political positions are more likely to be open about their pro-life views than their counterparts in the UK.
The hard labours of this approach are clearly now beginning to bear fruit and we must pray that the UK follows suit. We must also make sure we overcome any fears around being open and honest about our pro-life views. It is in the home and among our friends where we can really start to make a difference.
