NOV 22, 1963 / JAN 22, 1973

When President Kennedy was assassinated on Nov 22, 1963, people were shocked and outraged that someone would kill another human being, especially the President.  They worried about the future of the country.

When the Supreme Court legalized abortion throughout the country throughout all nine months for any or no reason on Jan. 22, 1973, most people did not even know it had happened.  As they found out, they were shocked and outraged that a doctor or a mother would kill a baby and that society would condone, indeed, encourage it.  They worried about the future of the country.

With all due respect to President Kennedy, Jan. 22 did much more damage to this country than Nov. 22.  Instead of one deranged ideologue, we have a nation of people who have decided their own offspring are enemies to be destroyed.  That thinking has led to in vitro fertilization, cloning, a huge increase in child abuse and sexually-transmitted diseases and, in general, a country of people who have no chest (hat tip to C. S. Lewis who also died on Nov. 22, 1963).

When history looks back on the 20th Century, Jan. 22 will stand out as the defining moment.  What history will say further about this country depends on us.  We must keep educating people at every opportunity in every situation, speak up, and work to elect people who value life.  More than half the people now self-identify as "pro-life" because of your work.  This is a huge shift since the '70's.  Keep up the good work - you are winning out for life! 

Bless you,
