People across the country marked the 36th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing abortion with speeches, prayers, rallies and marches. Others took their message to the all-popular medium of advertisement. Newspapers in Washington ran an advertisement urging people to support programs to help pregnant women and new mothers. Project Rachel, a program which provides post-abortion counseling, ran an advertisement on Washington’s Metro subway trains.

And in Chicago, a 30-second television ad ran not on the Jan. 22 anniversary but on Inauguration Day, tying a not so subtle pro-life message to the new president. The ad, sponsored by the group Catholicvote.org, displays an ultrasound of a baby and text which refers to a child who will be abandoned by his father and raised by a single mother but will become the first African-American president. Then it shows an image of President Obama along with the words: “Life: Imagine the Potential.”

  1. As a pro-life Catholic trying to facilitate the bishops campaign to stop FOCA I must again protest CNS’s continued minimization of the FOCA threat. CNS is a traitor to the efforts of pro-life Catholics who are trying to deal with the expressed political intent of the Obama adminestration and others who have would appose not only the right to life but the rights of healthcare providers as well.

  2. The best way to get the Pro-life message out is through your Parish, and your Local Catholic Radio station. http://www.ewtn.com/radio/amfm.htm
