The Power of One to choose life and to change the course of history

Published on

As I stood in front of the crowd, a light breeze cut through the sweltering humidity and gave me a second wind.

Two days after the 52nd annual National Right to Life Convention, I had the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with a group of dedicated pro-life advocates in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

The day before, I had engaged in a process of introspection, attempting to identify the most appropriate manner in which to address these individuals, who had dedicated a significant portion of their time and abilities to the pro-life cause.

At that moment, I was struck by a sudden realization. The concept of the “Power of One” is a fundamental tenet of the philosophy of the Oneida Community.

In my previous discourse, I expounded upon the transformative potential of the Power of One to effect positive change on a global scale. It is difficult to imagine the trajectory of the United States of America without the influence of Abraham Lincoln. It is difficult to imagine how the Civil Rights Movement could have progressed without the contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One might inquire as to the fate of the impoverished and disenfranchised had it not been for the dynamic Mother Teresa.

Furthermore, I referenced a study that was conducted on women who had undergone abortions but subsequently regretted their decisions. The study revealed that 85% of the women would have chosen to continue the pregnancy had only one person offered them support.

The concept of the “Power of One” is a fundamental tenet of the field of study.

In light of the numerous threats to the lives of innocent individuals in the world, the endeavour to halt the decline can appear overwhelming, at times, seemingly insurmountable. However, it is possible that a single individual may be able to effect a change in the course of history by choosing life.

The concept of the Power of One can be defined as the capacity to sustain, preserve, and protect the lives of innocent humans.

My personal “Gettysburg Address” will not be included in the annals of history. Nevertheless, I am convinced that the power of one can contribute to the creation of a safer and more hospitable environment for mothers and their infants.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
