Lighting a Candle in the Darkness

By Dave Andrusko

There is a wonderful woman at our office here at National Right to Life who affixes this reminder to the end of her emails: “Life offers no guarantees, but abortion offers no chances.”

I thought of that (especially the “no guarantee” part) the moment she asked if I wanted to alert our readers to a project something called “The Florida Independent” is conducting in partnership with Ms. Magazine.

Ms. Magazine is ultra-hostile to crisis pregnancy centers, so if the magazine and “The Florida Independent” are partnering “to investigate crisis pregnancy centers around the country,” you know their objective is to not to present a balanced portrait of CPS also known as crisis pregnancy centers or women helping centers.

But, having said that, this might present people who know the truth about these wonderful ministries with a genuine opportunity to tell their side. So, if you are of a mind to at least check this out, go to You’ll read a little more than what I’ve mentioned, and find a link to a site at Ms. where you are asked a series of question about your experience.

Who do they supposedly want to hear from? “If you’ve been involved with one as a patient, an employee, a volunteer, or an adoption worker, or you know someone who has, we would love to hear from you so that we can learn more about these organizations,” we’re told. “ Just visit the Public Insight Network and tell us a little more about your experience.”

I am not saying you should write, or not write. That’s obviously up to you. But this does present an opportunity to light a candle in the darkness.
