“By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, you men of the West!”
Aragorn’s speech to his frightened men before battle in a scene from LORD OF THE RINGS, Return of the King
You are part of a movement the likes of which America hasn’t seen since the slaves were freed. We call it the “Social Justice Creed,” the New Wave Movement of the 21st Century. A relentless pursuit of human liberty defines this movement.
Think about it: the Emancipation Proclamation that at last extended God-given rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness to slaves was the defining moment of human liberty in the 19th century.
In the 20th century, the defining human liberty moment was the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1919 which gave women the right to vote.
And in the 21st century, a furious battle is being waged to extend human liberty to our pre-born brothers and sisters. The New Wave is pro life. Its members are young. They are energized and optimistic in marked contrast to the pro abortion Old Wavers who are old, tired, and embittered.
GK Chesterton explains America
A great Englishman by the name of GK Chesterton observed that the United States of American is different than any other nation on earth because it was founded on a creed. Said Chesterton:
“That creed is set forth with dogmatic and even theological lucidity in the Declaration of Independence.
This Declaration is perhaps the only piece of practical politics that is also theoretical politics and also great literature.
It enunciates that all men are equal in their claim to justice, that governments exist to give them that justice, and that their authority is for that reason just.”
The Social Justice Creed seeks to correct the injustice of Roe v Wade and subsequent Supreme Court rulings that stripped away the fundamental right to life promised in the Declaration.
A confluence of scientific and theological thinking animates the New Wave Movement, which appeals to the young and the young at heart.
Iowans for LIFE invites you to attend a dynamic symposium on this subject on October 24th, the day of our ‘Clash of Creeds’ banquet. The symposium runs from 2 to 4:30PM at the Meadows Ballroom in Altoona, Iowa. Admission is free.
You’ll hear three cutting-edge speakers probe the social justice implications of abortion-on-demand from different perspectives.
Social Justice for the Unborn
Former Planned Director, Sue Thayer, will talk about Social Justice for the Unborn. She had a birds-eye view of the inhumane injustices heaped upon the unborn in a single Planned Parenthood clinic. What goes on in this single clinic is a denial of the Declaration of Independence. Now multiply that by some 700 human abortion clinics spread around the country. “Dear God, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
The number of these clinics keep dropping because of the work being done by the likes of our speakers and groups like Iowans for LIFE, Iowa Right to Life, and Restored By Grace Ministries. But even ONE such clinic is an affront to the Declaration of Independence and the social justice creed it spawned in this great nation.
Social Justice for the Pro-Life Generation
David Cordaro is with Students for Life. He has a unique take on abortion, because he was born after 1973, when Roe v Wade struck down every pro-life law in the nation.
His generation is tainted by the realization that they live only because someone wanted them; that had they been ‘inconvenient’ at the time of their conception, their life could have been cut short with legal impunity to their parents and their abortion “doctor.”
David is a leading member of the New Wave movement that refuses to be identified as the Roe v Wade generation. He is a member of the Pro Life Generation, and his talk will rouse you to join the New Wave and fight for social justice for the Pro-Life Generation.
Social Justice for Post-Abortive Women
Human abortion not only victimizes the innocent person in the womb, it victimizes the mother. Despite wealthy Hollywood celebrities who tell women to “shout their abortion,” women know what they’ve done. A phony platitude can’t gloss over the reality … and finality of abortion.
Laura Limmex, executive director for Restored By Grace Ministries, will talk about the tremendous social injustice heaped upon women deluded into thinking that abortion is okay, and what to do about it. If you have been personally wounded by abortion, please come and realize there is hope for healing.
Abortion is a heavy subject. Our nation has been gravely wounded by it. Is there hope for the future? Heck yes … the New Wave can’t be stopped! Join the movement! Attend the Social Justice Creed on Wednesday, October 24th beginning at 2PM.
Yes, Big Abortion and their medial allies outnumber us. But goodness and hope define the New Wave movement. Our Creator powers it. Nothing can stop it.
