Why I (a Man) March for Life

Banal minds find it hard to grasp why I serve as legal counsel for Concerned Women for America (CWA). For all their boasting about acceptance, inclusion, and equality, many liberal elites especially have a hard time seeing a man working for a women’s organization. Well I do, proudly. Deal with it.

I once went with my family to pray in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic as part of a 40 Days for Life prayer gathering when the organizer asked me to pray and introduced me as working for CWA. I prayed for the babies and the mothers inside the clinic. I prayed for the workers and their families. I also prayed for our community and the country to come to terms with the darkness of abortion. As I finished, a man who was standing at the clinic supporting Planned Parenthood came up to me and asked, with a smirk on his face, “So, you represent concerned women?”

Now, you have to understand, I’ve been with CWA for 17 years now, so I’ve heard this a few times. If someone is genuinely curious, having never thought about it, it is worth the time to talk to them about what I do. But this man, of course, did not fit the bill. He simply thought he was being clever for his pals who were behind him laughing.

I decided to try a different approach to see if I could get through to him that day.
