Urgent Call for People to Consider Full-Time Pro-Life Work to End Abortion by FATHER FRANK PAVONE for Life News
Having just celebrated the annual observance of our Nation’s Independence, and reflecting on the great principles on which our Founders build America and for which they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, I want to take this occasion to issue once again a call I have issued consistently since 1993.
It was at that time that I heard and responded to this same call in my own life, namely, the call to devote all one’s time, energy and resources to defending the youngest children from the violence of abortion.
There are many people throughout this land who are already living that call, and even more who, while not able to do so full-time, are giving as much time and energy as they can to ending abortion and restoring protection to children in the womb.
The call is to everyone, to do as much as is humanly possible in this most urgent human rights cause of our day.
Many are being called to leave their professions and take those professional skills and devote them to the cause of protecting the unborn, and I want to say today that it is time to answer that call. I want to fan the flames that are stirring in many hearts that realize that the right to life itself, which is being denied to children still living in the womb, is in fact one of the founding principles of this nation, and is the foundation of the entire fabric of social justice.
If, therefore, our Founding Fathers were justified in giving themselves completely to fight for God-given rights, and if anyone at any time has been justified in giving him or herself completely to the service of those who were oppressed by any injustice, then at the present moment, it is justified for us to give ourselves to the great cause of ending abortion.
Abortion remains the most urgent social and moral problem we face, and this is true for various reasons which have not changed.
