This week’s episode of The Van Maren Show takes listeners into the pro-life movement with Mark Harrington, the leader of Created Equal. Harrington spent over a decade working full-time to save babies in the final days of the Operation Rescue Movement and continuing with the Genocide Awareness Project with the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform. That is to say, he’s been involved in varying degrees of the boots-on-the-ground pro-life movement.
Van Maren starts off with his favorite question, “How did you get started in the pro-life movement?” Harrington tells the story of coming to Christ at 28 and then meeting his wife who was volunteering for a pregnancy resource center. It was her work with pregnant women, and her showing him a photo of an aborted baby that really changed the direction of his life. “You know, it was one of those things that you kind of feel the Holy Spirit just gripping your heart. And that changed my life. I mean, it was that quick; it was that immediate that I knew, at that point, I had to do something to stop the killing.”
