January 31, 2017: Del Rio News-Herald * OPINION * Letter to the Editor * Pro-life wins!

Letter to the Editor,

Pro-life wins!

The pro-life movement is bristling with growth, strength and results.

The majority of Americans now self-identify as pro-life.

Most Americans now believe in strict regulations of abortions, even those who call themselves pro-choice.

Eighty percent of millennials believe abortion should be banned after twenty weeks.

More than 300 pro-life laws have been passed in state legislatures over the past few years, that’s more than in the previous decade combined.

Abortion clinics are closing in droves and the numbers of abortions are drastically and dramatically down.

These laws have had the effect of bringing the U.S. abortion rate to lowest level since 1973.

The pro-life movement in America is the motivation and inspiration of pro-life movements around the world.

From the notion that abortion was settled, to abortion being one of the most unsettled political issues of all time is a stunning achievement of what is no more than a rag tag band of underfunded amateurs sitting around kitchen tables, dorm rooms, and meeting rooms in large major metropolitan cities and in small rural towns throughout the country.

The pro-life movement has brought us to the point where most of the country is on the side of the life issues, the point where the ground is actually fertile so that the Supreme Court will be prepared to actually turn the issue back to the states.

The pro-life movement has created the whole life-centered movement of respecting the dignity and sanctity of all life from conception to natural death.

The pro-life movement has created thousands of crisis pregnancy centers throughout the United States.

The pro-life movement has birthed and brought about a ground swell of a massive pro-life youth movement.

The pro-life movement has successfully passed hundreds of state restrictions on abortions.

The pro-life movement has created a global prayer network against abortions and for the cause of life.

The pro-life movement has prayerfully and peacefully counseled women on the sidewalks who have turned around from going into clinics performing abortions and have continued with their pregnancies and had their babies.
