Pro-life at all times Abby Johnson Many Catholics are brought up in pro-life homes, attending marches and rallies as children and teenagers. But we shouldn’t forget how dangerously simple it is to wander from a pro-life opinion to a pro-choice one. Abby Johnson, the former abortion clinic leader made famous after resigning from Planned Parenthood, grew up in a Christian, pro-life family. Still, she was successfully recruited to work at Planned Parenthood. Leading a life that protects the unborn isn’t about attending rallies and marches. It’s about supporting life in every way. It’s about supporting women emotionally when they are faced with a crisis pregnancy, it’s about praying for abortionists and abortion clinic workers, it’s about helping our own family members and friends through unplanned pregnancies even when that seems difficult. The Oregon Health Plan, which provides health care for low-income families and individuals, funds 10 abortions every day. This means that every taxpayer in the state of Oregon, regardless of moral convictions, is paying for abortions. A coalition of pro-life advocates is trying to change that.  Oregon Initiative Petition 1 currently gathering signatures would, if passed, prevent state funding of abortion. The Archdiocese of Portland encourages all Catholics to sign the petition and help bring the proposal to Oregon voters. “This constitutional amendment would save thousands of lives and spare mothers and families from the ensuing grief that always comes with the death of a child through abortion,” says the archdiocese. At a recent event in Lake Oswego, Johnson told a crowd not to let her speech be their pro-life activity for the year. Let’s follow that lead. Let’s not simply wear a pro-life badge. Let’s actually live a pro-life message in our daily lives. — Sarah WolfRead more.
