Although we accept the election results, Fr. Euteneuer encourages us to pro-lifers to always fight the good fight!
Our hope is in the Lord and His goodness! Indeed, that hope is needed in a time when very dark clouds of abortion are gathering over the nation’s Capitol. It is evident to all who have eyes to see that those storm clouds will unleash a torrent of attacks upon life, marriage and family all over the world, and Human Life International (HLI) is bracing for the worst. Barack Obama’s dismal record and rhetoric on life issues truly indicates how he feels about these critical matters and what he plans to do once in office. Our nation just elected a man who, if it can be believed, is more extreme in his anti-life stance than such pro-abortion stalwarts as Barbara Boxer and Nancy Pelosi. Until he was in the presidential campaign, he didn’t even pretend to care about the opinions of those who believe every human life is sacred. We can expect more of that callous disregard for pro-life sentiments in areas of his administration which are more shielded from public opinion, such as foreign policy and the UN. So what is the best response of the pro-life movement to the threat posed by an Obama administration? First, all organizations that defend human life need to re-focus and recommit to their core missions. We at Human Life International will intensify our missionary efforts in other countries to thwart the Culture of Death through education, training, and activism while communicating with our supporters in the States the human cost of America’s most destructive export – its anti-life agenda.
