Certainly I agree with the Catholic pro-life side of these posts. But I can remember a time in the 1970’s (ancient times!). I was influenced by both the culture of the time and the liberal college I attended. Although I would never even consider an abortion, I did know a few people who actually had them. I sure wish I could have influenced them different.

I think the pro-life movement has had success demonstrating that a fetus IS a child. But I am sure now, as back then many just don’t view life as we do. I do not have solutions for that, but I believe we must not condemn but be compassionate sometimes and let the Holy Spirit do the enlightening. I think that being servants to our fellow human beings following the example that Christ set before us will continue bring light to the poor misguided souls.(the pro-choice/abortionists that is)
