What a week...[in the words of David Bereit]
...Sunday was named "National Sanctity of Human LifeDay" by official proclamation of outgoing President George W. Bush. Churches across the nation marked the event during worship services...
...Yesterday we remembered the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who changed a nation by encouraging people to go to the streets and create peaceful, constructive tension that would necessitate change and ensure equal rights for all...
...Mere minutes ago, the administration of the most radically pro-abortion president in history began...
...and Thursday marks the 36th anniversary of the brutal and unjust Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that imposed abortion on all 50 American states.

This is a time to pray for America and -- like many courageous reformers of the past -- there must be a resolve that "we shall overcome" the many challenges that lie ahead in our work to end abortion. ~~~~~~~~~~~

I marked MLK Day by reading aloud the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass. He wrote that learning the definition of the word abolition changed his life.

I think we need to start referring to the pro-life movement as the movement to abolish abortion. We need a new movement of abolition, for our cause is just and we have God on our side, and we are up against the same forces Douglass loathed--

basic human greed and keeping people in the dark about the cruelty involved.

Let the Abolition of Abortion commence!
