Building a Pro-Life Future

From the 2016 National Right to Life Convention...

Grassroots pro-lifers are constant and consistent–educating, working on legislation, working at pregnancy centers, talking to friends and neighbors, working with young people. That faithfulness is making a difference.

During World War II, as you might expect, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had some dark days, but he didn’t necessarily look at setbacks as defeat. He asked a friend, “Why do we regard history as of the past and forget we are making it?”

We, right now, are making history. We are fighting for what is right, defending the defenseless and speaking up for the voiceless. Future generations will look back on our efforts as a bright light during a very dark period in our nation’s past. We, here today, are making history– building a pro-life future in which all human life will be respected and protected.
