Legendary basketball coach John Wooden once said, “It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” For grassroots pro-lifers, the heart and soul of our Movement, this means actions that may seem small, added together over time, build momentum to saves lives. They hasten the day when our culture once again respects all human life, not just the planned and the perfect!
For example, you might not think your one vote makes much of a difference. But together this “little” thing made a “big” thing happen in Kentucky. The state just elected a pro-life House of Representatives. In its first days, the Legislature enacted the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a law protecting the precious lives of unborn babies who can feel horrific pain as they are aborted.
Just weeks before, Ohio’s Legislature passed a similar protective law. Thanks to the work of pro-lifers just like you,16 states now have laws to protect these babies’ lives!
Here is more evidence of momentum. Last week, voters in a special election in Virginia elected a pro-lifer over a pro-abortionist. This victory maintained the single-seat pro-life majority in the state Senate. And because there is a pro-life majority in both houses, it keeps alive the opportunity to pass the law that already protects pain-capable unborn babies in states like Kentucky and Ohio.
A few people are making a huge difference in the lives of unborn children.
That is happening all around the country and not in state legislatures alone.
This life-saving difference begins anywhere a Right to Life chapter is started.
Any time someone speaks up for life.
Any time someone donates to empower National Right to Life to save lives.
You might think it is a “little” thing if you donate $5 or $10, or even $50 or $100. That it will not make a lot of difference.
But it will!
With our nationwide network of 3,000 chapters and 50 state Right to Life affiliates, National Right to Life has the infastructure in place to get the pro-life message out to thousands of people with just a handful of dollars.
And it works!
So please know that any amount of your support might help change a mind, or open a heart, or literally save a life.
Carol Tobias, President
National Right to Life Committee
