Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Norma McCorvey Join Forces to Fight Abortion

It's been a great couple of months for the pro-life movement and we aren't even a third of the way through 2007.

First, thanks to the generous donations of many people around the state and one from New York the Silent No More Awareness Campaign was able to run this quarter page ad in the Tacoma News Tribune on January 22, 2007.

Second, the 40 Days for Life Campaign is going strong and steady. Planned Parenthood and the Kitsap Sun continue to fantasize about a "spur in giving" to Planned Parenthood due to their "pledge-a-picketer" program. However, that same campaign marked the beginning of the end for Seattle's Aradia abortion mill earlier this year when they tried it to combat the presence of the Helpers of God's Precious Infants.

I don't think a message focused on greed really resonates with the public. Here's a line from Marcy Bloom, former executive director of Aradia, a full four years before their near bankruptcy:
I truly wish we had more money.

Many quotes and proverbs relating the money come to mind -- Money is the root of all evil, for instance. None of them bode too well for those who put trust in the almighty dollar as their lord and savior. Most apropos of the abortion industry? --Men are apt to prefer a prosperous error to an afflicted truth.

Finally, over the weekend, the Knights of Columbus in Kennewick sponsored the 3rd annual It's About Life Conference. It was a smashing success and it had nothing to do with money.

Dot Redmann of Silent No More Awareness Campaign was featured in much of the press coverage. Both her and Norma McCorvey, "Roe" of Roe v. Wade, shared a table during the conference. I bought a copy of Norma's book Won by Love, which she graciously signed for me. I highly recommend it.

It is curious that you begin a post thanking folks for donations and then blast Marcy Bloom for asking for donations. I think that is what I love to hate the most about this blog, your blatant and profoundly short sighted hypocrisy.

Money does not drive the pro-life movement. It is only by the grace of God who moved in the lives of those who felt called to make a donation that we are able to do anything. It is also due to the prayers of many, many, many good folks around the world. Our only purpose is to do God's will. If He wants it to happen he'll make sure we get the funds to do it.
That ad was pulled together with unpaid volunteers. We printed it because we wanted to reach out to women who are hurting. We didn't run it so we could have people send some organization money or to glorify ourselves.
Many people are involved in the pro-life movement at great personal and financial costs to themselves. On the other hand, money is one of the primary drivers in the pro-abortion movement. Hate, as you mention in your post, also seems to be a great motivator.
By the way, speaking of hypocrisy, whatever happened to your violent "cartoon" that showed a "super-hero" shooting pro-life people?
I might ask, when was the last time you prayed for pro-life people?
