It Isn’t Pro-Life or Christian to Shame Pregnant Teens

There are a lot of ways you can describe the shaming and exclusion of a pregnant teenage woman, but you sure can’t call it either Christian or pro-life.

In our faith tradition, God himself choose to enter into the grittiness of human living through the courageous ‘yes’ of an unwed, pregnant teenager.

This young girl who was kicked out of her graduation for being pregnant is a hero. The Christian school who kicked her to the curb is the modern-day innkeeper who said to Mary “there’s no room in the inn for you.”

You can wax all you want about pro-life Christian values, but you can’t be pro-life and anti-woman. It doesn’t work.

And you can’t be pro-life and be a participant and protagonist in the culture of shaming and exclusion. It doesn’t work.
