January is Right to Life Month - Update

I wrote a blog 4 years ago about my feelings about being Pro-life and what I thought about the Pro-life and Pro-Abortion movements.  The sad thing is that I don't see that much has changed.  In a way that's a good thing.  We had been told that the Obama administration would push through all kinds of new legislation while some of that has gone through mostly things are the same for the moment.  I think in part this was due to the diligence and hard work of Pro-lifers.

I am sad though that we haven't seen any real progress.  We are wed to the Republican party because the Democratic party is wed to the Pro-abortion side but we have seen so little progress.  Because we have no choice we have no power to change things.  They know we have to vote for them or not vote at all.  At the same time we get legislation that may actually push a woman to abort a baby if she feels there is no support for her.

I think that an even bigger threat coming our way is the split in the Pro-life movement that may be caused by Obama care.  The Catholic Church may be forced to make hard decisions concerning the Healthcare systems we run.  To us being forced to provide abortifacients to employees is the same as being forced to pay for abortions done in an abortion clinic.  The Protestant side of Pro-life may not support us in our stance or our right to religious liberty.  We have to ready for this by praying to God for His help and to make strong for our peaceful fight.

I hope that the Catholic Church will not be left  standing alone.  I pray that all those who support life will support us in our rights even if they choose to not oppose contraception.  Only if we are united will we have a chance of winning.  If they are able to divide us then we are lost.
