In January, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order defunding organizations that promote abortion around the world. It was celebrated as his first real pro-life decision while in office, to much conservative Christian celebration.
Many of my pro-life friends were wary. How can signing this order change a culture that celebrates abortion? These friends suggested that if this executive order is to have any lasting significance, the Christians that celebrate it had better open their homes, churches, and change purses to single mothers, kids in foster care, and orphans.
This cartoon is a reflection on these realities, and is based on Jesus’ parable of the Two Sons in Matthew 21:28-32. However, I don’t think either son in my story does the will of the Father.
