Out here in the area of the nation’s Capital, October rolled in with temperatures unseasonably chilly. In fact, Woodbridge, Virginia, was 20 degrees colder than Minneapolis!

On a warmer note, October 1 is the official start of “Respect Life Month.” As National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias reminds us, “Falling after the end of the summer and the hustle and bustle of getting back into the swing of things in September, designating October as ‘Respect Life month’ provides us the perfect opportunity to hold events which celebrate the gift of life and educate our communities about the sanctity of human life.”

And all this week Mrs. Tobias will be suggesting opportunities for you to invest time in the greatest social justice movement of our era. To name just a few from Monday’s five-minute broadcast:

·         As permission from your pastor to  have a table in the back of church after services on week to provide members of the congregation with educational information about the life issues.  Among the items you can offer are the factsheets offered by our National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund, and our full-color fetal development brochure, a baby’s first months.  Having a stack of National Right to Life News, the pro-life “newspaper of record” is also helpful.

·         Take a few minutes or even a couple of hours out from your hectic schedule to check in with your local right to life organization and find out what activities and events they have going on throughout the month. 

·         Make a resolution to discuss the pro-life issues with family, friends and neighbors in conversation.  “Never be afraid of sharing the facts about unborn children and their development in their mothers’ womb,” Mrs. Tobias says. “By providing a positive, life-affirming witness to the sanctity of life, you can individually touch hearts and change minds.  Use Respect Life Month to have more of those conversations.”

All this and more can be heard at Be SURE to pass along this link via your social networks. Respect Life Month is a great time to recruit new members.
