Below is my column in English and Spanish. Before you read them, please note this important announcement.The column, Through the Church, can be read here.
Between now and Election Day 2008, I am going to host a series of conference calls with interested pro-life people from around the country who want to do something about the elections. You will have an opportunity to sign up to participate, and I will send you all the necessary instructions.
The “something” we ultimately have to do, of course, is to keep out of office the abortion proponents, and put into office those who will not stand in our way as we go about the business of ending abortion. We are not looking for political saviors. We are simply looking to put into office public servants who can tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public.
We do not expect them to do our work for us. We just want to make sure they’re not going to stand in our way.
At www.PoliticalResponsibility.org, you'll see more information about the coordinated action we will ask people to take nationwide, and a form where you can sign up to get involved.
Let me also provide you with the upcoming schedules for our own TV shows and Radio programming:
