“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

The last blog entry "When The Law Is An Ass" was about Canada's shameful Criminal Code that states a baby is not a human being until fully born. Prenatal life is unprotected throughout throughout all nine months of pregnancy! Abortions are tax funded in Canada. The situation is horrendous and intolerable!

Meanwhile things are slowly changing in America. Most American young people are rejecting the abortion mindset -- to the dismay of aging abortion ideologues from their parents' generation. National Right To Life Committee President Carol Tobias recently addressed this phenomenon in an open letter.  Below is the text of. her letter.



Dear Friends:

In an exclusive interview with the Washington Post’s Sarah Kliff released tonight, NARAL President Nancy Keenan announced that she would be stepping down from her post at the end of the year.

Kliff writes in her story:

In recent years, Keenan has worried about an ‘intensity gap’ on abortion rights among millennials, which the group considers to be the generation of Americans born between 1980 and 1991. While most young, antiabortion voters see abortion as a crucial political issue, NARAL’s own internal research does not find similar passion among abortion-rights supporters.

In other words, Nancy Keenan’s conclusion is something we have known for years: the post-Roe generations are pro-life – and more passionately so than their parents’ generations and their pro-abortion, post-Roe counterparts.

We know from Gallup that 61% of the country believes abortion should be illegal in all circumstances or legal only in a few circumstances. We know from Gallup that 45% of the country self-identifies as pro-life. We know from Gallup that 51% of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong. And we know that when those questions are asked of the post­-Roe generation, the numbers tend to skew higher.

More important, I know that none of this would even be possible without you and the work you do with National Right to Life and our nationwide network of state affiliates and local chapters. Every day you are educating your communities, touching hearts and changing minds. Every day, you are helping us make a difference for the most defenseless members of our society.

Look back to 2003 when the New York Times Magazine quoted David J. Garrow, a hard-core pro-abortion "legal historian" at Emory University, as stating, “There’s been so much media attention over the last seven to eight years on partial-birth abortion, we shouldn't be surprised that some of it has had an effect on 12-to-14-year-olds, and it is a public relations coup for the National Right to Life Committee."

The other side has noticed. And they’re “worried.”

Keep up the great work. Together we will win…for their lives.
Carol Tobias


I have been praying for years that young people would reject the abortion corruption that is the dark legacy of their parents generation. Perhaps I may yet see Roe V. Wade overturned and the United States of America emerge into the sunny warmth of a new day when all human life is treasured, embraced and included within the tender embrace of a culture of life. God's blessing may return to America.

Dare I hope for the same in Canada?
