Carrying on the Good Fight

Charmaine Yoest and Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King) had a recent op-ed in the Washington Times recalling the tenacity of the movement for justice for all human beings to assure us that sooner or later the prolife movement will win.
In 1857, when the Supreme Court ruled in Dred Scott v. Sanford that black Americans essentially had no protection under the Constitution and therefore virtually no rights, abolitionists may have felt that their cause had been dealt a serious blow - yet they continued to press ahead.

They pressed ahead, as we do now, not because victory was immediate but because they were compelled by duty to do what is right. And in America, land of the second chance, we know there will be another opportunity.
