I find that article very encouraging! Thank you for sharing it!

Also, many young people realize that they were the lucky ones that got born. There are many missing from our generation. What great minds never got born? How many future husbands never got born? How many of our co-workers, teachers, athletes never got born? There have been 50 million abortions since Roe v Wade. Who's missing? Some of us (such as myself) were almost aborted. So, it's a bit personal as well.

At the time of the election, my 5-year old son loved then-Senator Obama. When he found out that my wife and I were not planning to vote for Mr. Obama, he was curious. I explained as gently as possible that we could not do it with a clear conscience since Barrack Obama would not even try to protect the lives of babies before their births. We felt it disqualified him from receiving our votes. Like the parents of the young people in the article, we are also training our son to respect the lives of pre-born children (and others).

As for the prospects of eventually overturning Roe v. Wade or passing a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution, I'm not sure if it will happen. But I know that supporting the pro-life position makes a positive difference in our nation, even when we continually lose the political battles. A decade ago, I read that 2/3 of Russia's pregnancies ended in abortion. At that time, 1/3 of American pregnancies ended in abortion. Neither country had many legal restrictions on the procedure, but the abortion rates were sharply different. I'm convinced that it is because Russia has never had a significant pro-life movement. We may fail often as a political movement, but even in failure, we are a voice for the children. And that voice is being heard.
