Did I See you at the March for Life by Ted Meehan

Did I See you at the March for Life by Ted Meehan Those of us at the March, are not privy to whatever coverage this annual event receives. But, one suspects that a mass of pro-abortion feminists that was 1/10 this size would receive wall to wall gushing media by those who bring us our news. But we are used to the obfuscation and distortion of the news media, and we continue to arrive year after year - hoping that some year they will listen. If the estimate of this turnout of 500,000 is correct, this number would be less than half the number of surgical abortions committed each year. Several times this amount are believed to take place with chemical abortions. We are destroying the future. If any medical threat was responsible for such a massive loss of life for 40 years, would someone have started to hand out a colored bracelet? Or initiated some type of fund raising event that received massive public support? If we lost between 1.2 million and 1.5 million in a war - for 40 years - would there be disruptive anti-war protests? Wouldn't supporters of such massive carnage be politically radioactive? How is it that we have become so numb, and so apathetic, as a nation to this annual destruction of innocent human life? Those who stand for Life have been called extremists for so long, that pro-life people are reticent to admit to their own reverence for the sanctity of life. Can this be possible? The strength and inspiration that we receive from one another at the March must strengthen our resolve to be "in the face" of the enemies of Life. We can't back down. We must recognize the massive evil that is taking place in silence and in the face of national apathy - or approval. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." (Edmund Burke)
