Another year has passed – and another 1.2 million surgical abortion kills – and we must again rededicate ourselves to the task of restoring respect and legal protection to all innocent human life in these United States – the major step toward which, of course, must be the reversal of the infamous decision of Roe v. Wade, on Jan. 22, 1973, which legalized this holocaust against the most innocent and defenseless members of the human family.
While we annually update our information and assess our position, admittedly one of our major purposes is the effort to make each and every person realize that the obligation is individual, and we must reach out to change the minds of those who do not share our views. More importantly, we must elicit action from those who give lip service to the principles, but do nothing to advance them, and indeed contribute affirmatively to the opposition by supporting pro-abortion politicians, and/or criticizing the Pro-Life movement.
“If, in this last part of the twentieth century, the Christian community does not take a prolonged and vocal stand for the dignity of the individual and each person’s right to life – for the right of each individual to be treated as created in the image of God, rather than as a collection of molecules with no unique value – we feel that as Christians we have failed the greatest moral test to be put before us in this century.” Dr. Francis Schaeffer, Protestant philosopher
“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” Edward Everett Hale, American clergyman and writer
“I can’t do everything” is a common excuse we tell ourselves when we wish not to do anything. Granted, no one can do everything, but there is so much for each of us to do.
