I want to thank you if you stood publicly for the lives of innocent babies in the womb this month, or helped others to stand publicly. There were numerous pro-life events in California and our nation, and SaveCalifornia.com urged people who know the Truth to participate.
The fruit of these public demonstrations is they 1) save babies, now and in the future, 2) reinforce moral courage and pro-life values for everyone who participates, 3) and educate many spectators through both earned media, paid media, and new media (the kind we control).
Some are publicly criticizing media outlets that are pro-abortion and refuse to report on pro-life marches, walks, rallies, and news conferences. But I don’t think this complaining does any good.
No, instead, we should be glad whenever the Truth gets into the media. And we should learn how to generate more media so more Truth gets out and more minds are changed.
For example, the Orange County pro-life demonstration on Jan. 22 was covered by TV news channels 2/9, 4, 7, and 11, as well as in the Los Angeles Times and Orange County Register. Organizers Bob and Bev Cielnicky worked hard to invite the media, and SaveCalifornia.com was privileged to be their media consultant.
In San Francisco on Saturday, here’s one of the news reports of the 50,000-strong Walk for Life.
And, in Washington, D.C., despite the sparse national big media’s news coverage of the gigantic March for Life on Friday, this good report on Fox News Channel distributed a lot of Truth. So be glad when people who know the Truth work hard to get out the Truth!
I think we have deluded ourselves into believing that people don’t know that abortion is killing.
So any pretense that abortion is not killing is a signal of our ambivalence,
a signal that we cannot say yes, it kills a fetus.
