Over the past two weeks I’m hoping that what might have been your first exposure to National Right to Life’s daily 5-minute program, Pro-Life Perspective, has convinced you that you need to listen regularly.

If you needed any reassurance that going to every Monday through Friday—beyond what you learned in the ten-part series “Abortion in America—is worth your time, this week will be proof positive.

Fred Barnes is Executive Editor of The Weekly Standard magazine and a frequent contributor and commentator on Fox News Channel.  A convention favorite, Mr. Barnes provided a wonderfully motivational opening when delivered his fourth address to a National Right to Life convention.

In addition to plenty of “insider baseball,” Mr. Barnes’s delivered a very personal talk that helped the audience understand his own pro-life journey. I was there,  and rest assured you will want to hear his speech over the next five days.

Again, go to And if you missed any of the “Abortion in America” series, you can find it there.
