I distinguish between abortion-mill workers—who are often well-intentioned, and often convert—from cold-blooded, cold-hearted people like Biden and Pelosi, who are pro-abortion because they are cynics. How many pro-aborts in public office have converted to pro-life WHILE IN OFFICE? ZERO! This is just an indication of how thoroughly they have given themselves over to evil. They are much worse than abortion-mill workers. They are worse than some abortionists. Abortionists have become pro-life at a higher rate than pro-abortion politicians.

Arthur, I understand what you're saying. I'm not trying to be argumentative :) I think your post struck a nerve because I struggle sometimes, well a LOT of times, with the best way to deal with evil.

I often ask myself, how would Jesus deal with this? I remember his whip in the temple. And his patience trying to reach others with words, giving his detractors more courtesy than they were willing to give him. Or the time he just walked away. And I ask which, in my state in life, am I called to do? If sin is enslavement, then am I called to free the sinner or shun him? Love, even if expressed only as prayer for conversion, is something I can do and be confident in pleasing God. After that it gets more difficult for me. I struggle with when it's best to separate myself from evil and when it's best to love (charitable behavior that doesn't enable the sin) when it's really, REALLY difficult.

But that's just me. Others in different vocations and with different gifts from the Holy Spirit may be called to act differently. Your point about politicians vs clinic staff is well taken. Maybe my thoughts about loving the sinner is really enabling when it comes to those in public life. I'll have to prayerfully ponder this more. Thanks for taking time to respond.

Peace be with you.
