Kanye West was on the news thanking his mother for life. His father had wanted to abort him, but she stood for life.
Although the core of West’s message was for many eclipsed by his delivery, his message is one that popular culture needs to hear. Sometimes God uses unlikely messengers.
On a personal level, his story was most emotional for me. A couple of years back, a woman came up to me and asked if I was Dr. Collis. When she heard that I was, she said, ” I thank God every day for you.”
She explained, “When a young unmarried woman came to you years ago wanting a referral for an abortion, you talked with her about human life’s precious value. She decided not to have an abortion. That woman was my mother.”
Blessings come in many forms. It is simply not possible to receive a more precious blessing. Our entire society and culture need to understand why life is sacred from conception until natural death.
