NCR: Troubled by America’s Leadership? Blame Abortion
Abortion doesn’t just kill an innocent, unborn child; its tentacles destroy every aspect of society, beginning at the head.
By Carrie Gress, Ph.D.
40 Days for Life is kicking off its fall campaign this week. Of the many efforts to stop abortion in America, few are succeeding like this peaceful, prayerful protest. This year’s campaign includes 367 vigil locations in the U.S. with 23 other countries hosting campaigns. Since its inception in 2007, nearly 12,000 babies have been saved (that they know of), 75 abortion clinics have closed, and 133 abortion clinic workers have quit.
But what does this have to do with our election? While the 40 day campaign is set to end just two days shy of election day, the bigger issue is our leadership. Polls are showing that dissatisfaction with the two candidates for president is widespread, with voters in both parties unhappy with their candidate. Many are asking how out of all the people in the county, the race has narrowed down to these two. But for one priest, the answer to such a question was no mystery.
