A movement led by the poor and powerless

Mary Ann Glendon celebrates “the greatest grass-roots movement of our times”:

Each time we make policy on abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic experimentation, we are changing the moral ecology of our country. We are either helping to build the culture of life or cooperating with the culture of death. It hasn’t helped that the elite media, the powerful foundations, the sex industry, and the vast profit-making abortion industry have done their best to disguise the truth of what was happening.

But what makes the pro-life movement ‘the greatest grassroots movement of our times’ is that it has steadily marched forward without support from the wealthy and powerful. It has moved ahead thanks to dedicated women and men – from all walks of life – who have never ceased to witness to the truth, day in and day out.
