Today in a 7th grade class, we were discussing abortion. I had taken a poll to see where these kids stand. These are Christian kids, from Christian homes (most of them anyway) in a Christian school. I was astounded at how many think its ok to abort if the girl is too young to care for a baby! They were torn on the rape/life of the mother issues, and thats understandable. I am really just trying to get them to think critically b/c they havent had to do much of that up to this point. And I polled 40 kids, and a third of them know someone personally that has had an abortion. Most are Christians, as well. I am starting to read a book by Thom Rainer about perspectives from unchurched, and I am so saddened at how we as Christians are doing. Our divorce rates, sexual morality, etc, as not much different than those who at least have the excuse that they arent followers of Christ.
