A radio talk show host once asked me how the pro-life movement was faring across the country. A few days later, a pro-life advocate who has been in the trenches for quite some time asked me the same question.
I responded “fantastic!” and noted how energetic and enthusiastic people are about the pro-life cause.
I hear it in the voices of pregnancy help center counselors, who are assisting women to make bold and optimistic life-affirming decisions for themselves and their families.
I see it in the eyes of young people who are valiantly taking up the pro-life mantle.
I witness it in the memes, blog posts, ultrasound photos, and articles which blanket social media. People are harnessing the power of the Internet to share the truth about the tragedies of abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and doctor-prescribed suicide.
I notice it in the notes I receive from dedicated pro-life activists who are poised to spread the pro-life message far and wide.
The passion for the pro-life movement is ever-present in our culture today. It is the light shining in the pro-death darkness, and it is showing us the way to a society that cherishes each human life—from the dawn to the twilight of life.
I told the talk show host it’s a great time to be pro-life in America—and it is. Despite the challenges we face, we know we are on the winning side of justice.
With every life saved, with each heart changed, we are rebuilding a culture of life in our country. And that’s worth celebrating!
