For many Americans born after January 22, 1973, abortion is just another aspect of who we are as a culture. But the folks born after this date should thank their mom and dad for not aborting them as a third of their generation were not as fortunate. After so many years of legalized murder of the unborn, people have stopped believing its wrong, or see no need to oppose it. But there are still a fair amount of Americans who believe that abortion is wrong. Friday is the annual March For Life in Washington DC. It may be the largest group to meet there yet, given the gravity of the situation of having the most pro-abortion president yet and his recent HHS mandate attacking the Catholic faith. The most beautiful thing is seeing how many at the March are young people who will be the future of this country and provide the votes to support pro-life politicans.
The fight against abortion may seem hopeless at times but there are many signs that things are turning around. One half of abortion clinics in the US have closed and crisis pregnancy centers out-number abortuarys 3:1. (See the full story in this article in National Catholic Register
.) Many workers in the abortion industry are having conversions and becoming outspoken advocates for life.
So on Friday we will keep marching, praying and letting the government know the pro-life movement is not going away any time soon. Keep the unborn and their mom's in your prayers.
