A friend of mine told me about a new video by Lil Wayne entitled “How To Love”. Normally, I don’t agree with Lil Wayne’s music content or use of inappropriate language but I have to admit, he did a great job addressing a serious problem in our country today.
The video addresses the issue of choice and how one choice can lead to the next choice. Depending on what choice you make in the beginning can and will affect the subsequent choices you make. Those choices also affect your children and how their lives may turn out.
The video posted August 24, 2011, just 8 days ago, has already received over 6.5 million views. I pray that everyone watching will stop and think about the message of the video: Abortion is not the answer, showing your children how to love and how to be loved can change their lives, children do better being raised within the context of a family unit (married mother and father), education leads to a future, and hearing a doctor say “you’re pregnant” is a blessing and a gift from God.
May Lil Wayne’s message be used to bring people to the pro-life movement because the astronomical number of abortions, especially in the Black community, is just devastating. Numbers don’t lie.
Back in 2007 Nick Cannon also did a pro-life video, “Can I Live”, about his mother’s decision to give birth to him instead of aborting him. We hope that Lil Wayne’s new addition to the pro-life arsenal will spark others to make a stand against abortion.
I commend Lil Wayne and Nick Cannon for their courage and tenacity in making videos that have the ability to positively influence so many people at a time in our nation’s history when so many seem to be losing their way. I encourage and challenge other artists to use their talents and influence to make a positive mark on our society.
We all need to work together to help turn the tide around. Please keep sending a positive message Lil Wayne.
