“Pro-Life Group: “It is shameful that Christians would rally around the physical needs of the poor””

The press release

A point made in the first comment is what knocked the wind out of me. Of course this is what makes abortion a white, rich, christian, male issue. Why have I never heard anyone say it before??

"Bottom line, if wealthy Christian men want to combat poverty, real poverty, we have to surrender so much of our privilege. If we choose to combat abortion, we give up nothing of value to us — no question where the easier path lies."

Jared Paul said in the slam I posted "if you and I sacrifice our surplus so everyone has food, medicine and a bed, then we can reach it." How many wealthy Christian men are sacrificing their surplus? How many are adopting unwanted babies?
