Much time, money and energy has been wasted on political efforts which have not borne fruit. Instead, may we focus on the conversion of hearts and the building of a world that does not desire the evils our leaders have legalized.
The secret and, therefore, the essential locus of evangelization with respect to the Gospel of Life is the medical pregnancy center. They are the only ones having any notable success-not the screaming fundamentalists with bloody pictures on the street, not the lobbyists, not the pundits. If we had spent the money wasted on failed pro-life voting initiatives on clinics we would have saved more babies. The conversion of the heart of a mother begins with her first ultrasound and the embrace of a loving staff.
Pray for conversion of hearts not political victories. Pray for a world that no longer needs abortion and recognizes need to reform an overgrown and meddlesome State.
Consider the following Message from Cleveland Right to Life:

The Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt decision is yet another example of the mess that our country is in, a mess that will only be overcome when we fall on our knees and ask for God's forgiveness for allowing this slaughter to continue on our watch. For at least a decade many in the prolife movement have placed their trust in the courts as they have tried to regulate abortion out of existence. This strategy has to change. The deciding vote in this latest Supreme Court decision was made by a Republican appointed judge, Justice Anthony Kennedy. This decision is a clarion call to all of us in the prolife/pro-family movements to think outside the box as we regroup after this devastating blow to men, women and children. The "same ol' same ol" will get us more of the same failed results.
