Radically Re-framing Pro-Life

Radically Re-framing Pro-Life

Crisis Pregnancy can refer to a couple of things. First, it can refer to a pregnancy that is unplanned and which can put the mother and child in a difficult economic or social situation. It’s a crisis of hardship; one in which even if the mother is wanting to keep the child, she doesn’t quite know how to navigate the struggles of an unplanned pregnancy.

An Advent Reflection on Life and Abortion

The post below is written by Jeremy Spainhour, a theologian, pastor, writer, rock climber and fellow coffee roaster (Kifu coffee, in fact, helped mentor us in the process of developing Drinklings).

Adoption and Abortion: A Story

Adoption and Abortion: A Story

Kevin and Nicole Cook's story went viral a year ago when they posted a picture online asking to adopt a baby out of an abortion minded situation. What followed was a journey that has put them on the side lines of both abortion and adoption and they have learned a great deal about the complexities of both. It's imperative that adoption become a visual and viable option for those that are abortion minded and it's a major task set before the pro-life movement to make the path to adoption clear from unnecessary brush. You can read more about Kevin and...
