Happy Feast of St. Luke, who, though not one of the Apostles, wrote one of the most beautiful of the four Gospels, and is also the author of the Acts of the Apostles. Luke writes mostly for the Gentiles, leans heavily on the other Gospels but has many accounts not found in the others, but facts well known among the early Christians.
Luke is the patron saint of doctors. His Gospel is orderly and written in a classic Greek style and connects the Old Testament prophecies with Christ’s fulfillment of these.
Good Work, Generations Staff!
Our hat is off to John Jansen, Annie Casselman and Eric Scheidler for conducting an informative and entertaining Generations for Life conference Saturday at St. Mary of the Angels to two-dozen youth leaders from across the country.
Ann and I spoke at the early session, then headed for Michigan where we spoke to a gathering of pro-life leaders at Monica Miller’s first Church and Truth outing and silent auction at her home. Speakers also included Dr. Janet Smith, famous for her talks on the link between contraception and abortion. Monica is famous for being one of the most effective pro-life activists in the world.
Pro-Abort Fears Show Pro-Life Effectiveness
Sometimes the best way to discover just how effective you are is to let the pro-aborts tell you. Such is the case in a Vogue Magazine story on how troubled the pro-aborts are.
Built around Norma McCorvey’s case attempting to overturn the 1973 Roe and Doe decisions, the story admits that, among other things:
- 20 states require a 24 hour waiting period before an abortion
- 26 states make it a crime to harm a fetus
- 31% of metropolitan areas have no abortion provider
- 82 % of abortion mills operate with pro-life protesters present
And the percent of Americans favoring unrestricted abortions is down to one in four, as pro-aborts see their so called right to choice eroding more and more each year.
Also bothering the pro-aborts are laws like the Lacy and Connor’s Law, the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, the Partial Birth Abortion Ban, and other legislation that they see cutting away at their efforts to make abortion respectable.
Kate Michelman of NARAL is quoted, “People don’t see them chipping away at Roe perpetually. They don’t know that since 1995 over 335 laws were enacted by the states to restrict a woman in her right to choose” The article, which we just came across, is a year old, so things may be even worse for the abortionists now. We sure hope so.
As to the election in just two weeks, so much is being written and said and broadcast and denied and charged that we’re not saying another word except to exhort all our callers to vote straight pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, anti-embryonic stem cell research, anti-cloning and anti-euthanasia. We knew you’d do that, anyway.
