Message from the President
The Battle Cry
I was recently flying with my daughter Rachael. We were on our way to Alabama where we would be speaking at several pro-life events. While traveling I thought about a radio show that I co-hosted eighteen months ago. The regular host was out of town and he asked me and another person to fill in.
We were talking about the topic of the day. My co-host was describing some recent events and we were discussing them. As we talked I asked her, "do you ever cry." I will never forget how she began to weep. What the audience heard was nothing compared to what I witnessed. Through the rest of the show the tears ran down her face.
She described her experience from a couple of weeks before. She was at the abortion clinic, counseling people and trying to prevent women from having an abortion. She had spent forty minutes counseling one woman, she told her about the help that the pro-life community would provide for her and her family, she prayed and she pleaded with this young woman. My friend and my co-host, Jo Scott, finished the story by telling us that this young mother went in and had the abortion. Each tear falling from Jo's face represented a baby, a tiny life, a victim of a secular world, murdered through abortion.
As President of CRTL, I realize that the work I do pales in comparison to what so many of you do. Did you know that many of the board members of CRTL are regularly at the abortion clinics trying to save babies? As I look at the opportunities to fight against this evil, I am humbled by the work and the success of these warriors, including the sidewalk counselors and the people at the crisis pregnancy centers.
To our members, and to everyone involved in trying to protect all innocent human life, I offer my sincerest Thank You!
