I have been pleasantly surprised that many pro-lifers are expressing the notion that “the real work starts now.”
It's likely you've spent too much time taking pro-abortion talking points at face value. Because the false pro-abortion narrative that abortion opponents don't care about anyone (including even the unborn) is a boldface lie. I've not been in a church since I became Christian that didn't do what it could to help the unborn, the born, the mother and, sometimes when they're really crazy, the father as well.
Just once I'd like to see someone repeating that lie provide actual stats showing that pro-life activists don't care, or care less than pro-abortion activists. Oh, and that doesn't include the old slick trick of assuming liberal economic and social policies are the only path to salvation, so anyone who disagrees must hate poor people and minorities.
BTW, I don't care for this sort of thing either:
Unfortunately, I’ve also seen some self-described pro-lifers celebrating the news in a triumphalist and callous way.
Triumphalism? Over the possibility of hindering the wholesale mass slaughter of unborn children (Biden's words)? Please. As if the other side is all about humility and modest discourse. To my eyes, it's the usual 'Gee, I must find something bad to say about the opponents of death.' That always strikes me as the first step toward entering the modernity camp of death and debauchery. Plus, if I'm going to be triumphalist or callous in my reaction to something, let it be over the possibility of saving innocent life.
Nonetheless, the old 'of course the Left can fire verbal nukes at dissenters, but how dare you fire a pea-shooter in return' template is another way of saying we're really on the side of the nuke shooters. I don't think the faithful should do what we call wrong just to win. I do think, however we should be honest about what we're fighting and stop acting like tea cosies and lace napkins are the appropriate response to an assault by Tiger tanks.
If the good Dr. Gabriel actually wants the forces of good to succeed, then please stop embracing the usual approaches of failure that have defined so much of the children of light over the last many generations. That couldn't help but be a good place to start.
