Overheard

Fr. Tim Moyle discusses the struggle of Canada's prolife movement and how all their efforts seem to be for naught.
Year after year since the Trudeau government in 1969 legalized abortion, pro-lifers have prayed, protested and lobbied Parliamentarians, only to find their efforts come to naught. In fact, since the Canadian Supreme Court removed all limitations on abortions in 1988, almost one-third of all pregnancies in Canada today end with an abortion......

Yet they do not stop. Indeed they believe that they cannot quit trying to inculcate what Pope John Paul II called a “culture of life.” For them, the issue of abortion is not a question of choice; it is a matter of life and death.....

Pro-lifers have reason to hope. History teaches that nothing is held more firmly than common consensus until the moment it changes.
