I heard these words yesterday and they moved me. They reminded me why I’m willing to spend the rest of my life, if need be, to end the practice of abortion. They reminded me that even if the work I do does not yield the intended result, I am working for a just cause and doing what I know in my heart is the right thing. Too many of us acknowledge evil but fail to confront it. I’m consumed by the evil of abortion, and I’m willing to give everything and lose everything to rid the world of it.
Sparing unborn children from the horror of abortion is the right thing to do. The abortion industry’s agenda is killing children and making money. The suffering and violent deaths of millions of unborn children in America would have never happened, nor would it continue today if enough men and women of principle had stood against evil and done the right thing. I can feel in my heart that we are living in the time when the industry of death that kills thousands of children every day will be brought to its knees.
A year ago, very few of us would have believed that Congress would be taking steps to defund Planned Parenthood. No one would have predicted that horrifying videos of Planned Parenthood harvesting the organs of dead babies for sale would come to light. There is overwhelming evidence that Planned Parenthood should not be the benefactor of over $500 million in taxpayer money every year. To put it in perspective, each of Planned Parenthood’s 668 clinics receives nearly $1 million every year from the U.S. taxpayers.
It’s never too late for even the workers at Planned Parenthood to do the right thing. They could stop killing babies for money tomorrow. Knowing what the right thing to do is, and not having the courage to take action is no excuse for not taking action. Our gift of life is granted with conditions. It obligates us to protect our fellow humans at every stage of development, from conception to grave. We all know it’s the right thing to do, but far too many of us will abdicate our responsibility in the hope that someone else will do our share.
Doing the right thing can subject you to ridicule and worse. Many will tell you what you know in your heart is right, is wrong. They’ll tell you to go along with the crowd and to not make waves. They’ll try to convince you that the cost of doing the right thing is not worth it. Don’t listen to them. It’s never wrong to do the right thing, and I’ll never stop, whatever the cost.
