    An abortion is the intentional killing of an unborn child inside (or partially inside) the womb.

    Social justice is . . . what exactly?

    Again and again I see young social justice-focused evangelicals abandoning any effective voice for the unborn for the sake of an ephemeral, culturally-fashionable concept that as a practical matter means little more than advocating a utopian ideal through a grab-bag of banal, functionally socialist policies. Moreover, the embrace of social justice often drives them functionally into the arms of a political party and political movements that are dedicated to protecting and even subsidizing the “right” to kill children on a vast, industrial scale.

    Social justice must be virtuous indeed to be worth such a high cost. So, what is it?

    Well, it turns out that to many on the Left, legalized abortion is an indispensable aspect of social justice. Is that the social justice evangelicals are fighting for?
