I enjoy a good civil debate, and I emphasize the word civil. Even though I may not agree or respect your politics, and I am mainly referring to the pro-life debate here, I still respect you and your human dignity. It you use contraception, or have had an abortion in your past, I will still treat you with dignity, however, I will pray for you.
I have gotten engaged in a pro-life/pro-choice debate via Facebook on Abby Johnson's Facebook fan page. Abby Johnson has written an awesome book called Unplanned, and I highly recommend it. Abby was the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas, saw first hand the horror of an abortion after she witnessed an ultrasound-guided abortion and she pretty much turned pro-life instantly and now is an activist for the cause! Her story is awesome and I think everyone should read it.
But, back to my debate. As we all know, pages like these sometimes attract trolls who want to start a debate. This started with Miss Alexa who came on to the page and I think intentionally wanted to start a debate. Which is fine, like I said, keep it civil and BRING IT ON! It went like this:

So, I think I did a decent job defending life, and I give Miss Alexa a KUDOS for remaining civil. There was no yelling, no name calling or anything of that nature. Let us all pray for Alexa and hope that maybe this debate will have an affect on her views and that she will respect the right to life!
My Lord Jesus, I pray for Alexa. Please wrap her up in the sea of your Divine Mercy and help her to respect the life of ALL people, great or small.
