Yes, We Can!

Thursday, January 22, 2009
Here's change I can believe in: that a woman does not have to choose between her child and her education, or her job or whatever else society tells her are incompatible with motherhood. I so wish I could be at the March for Life this year, but I am there in spirit.

It's so fitting that all the hype surrounding the Inauguration and Obama has been replaced with tens of thousands of people willing to stand up for those unable to stand up for themselves, to give a voice to the voiceless. These people have come from small towns and big cities. They are black, white, young and old. (Arguably, a much more diverse crowd than was present just a few days ago for the Inauguration.) And they are united by a single purpose, belief in the idea that life is sacred, alarmed that anyone could think otherwise.

And this is a tough year, a poignant year for the March for Life. After the election of the most pro-abortion candidate in America's history, one who has the audacity to promote laws that support infanticide, the fight may seem lost and the courage of those who truly hope for "justice for all" diminished, but I am comforted by what General Washington once said,

"Let it be told to the future world ... that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive...that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet (it)." *

Today, I am proud to be pro-life. Today, I am proud to be an American. God Bless to all the marchers!

*Obama also used this quote in his Inaugural Speech, but I think Washington would have agreed that it applies more to the pro-life movement than to what Obama was referencing.
