“A primary mandate of our day,” is “to make abortion unthinkable by infusing the culture with the dignity and joy of the alternatives.”
“We need this culture to be awash with beautiful, uplifting stories of love and courage. Of motherhood — biological and spiritual. We need people tripping over stories of self-sacrifice and the redemptive joy of true self-giving love. If we lead with love in upholding the beautiful dignity of each individual woman, women will listen, men will feel a new freedom, young people will be saved from the confusion of their lives … families will be strengthened and even made possible.”
That is some of what I said Thursday night at the New York Ball for Life benefitting Good Counsel maternity homes last week. The Catholic News Agency published the remarks here, for anyone interested.
