National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias begins Thursday’s PLP episode with an important question:

“Building on the indispensable work of grassroots pro-lifers, what are the ingredients that are contributing most to hastening the day when unborn children are ‘welcomed in life and protected in law’? (to quote President George W. Bush). Reflecting on that question for even just a moment would yield dozens of wonderful answers.”

Among her answers is anything that cuts through the fog that hides the reality and humanity of a vibrant, developing member of the human family. “Part of that,” she says, “a very large part, is linguistic.”

From there Mrs. Tobias helps us remember the enormous headway we have already made.  Who has the temerity to talk about a “clump of tissue” anymore? Even “choice,” which has long been the most popular pro-abortion buzzword, has an odd, almost grating sound when you hear it now.

She asks, “But why?”

“In large measure because we routinely see visual evidence of the little ones who once were virtually invisible. When the phrase “window on the womb” was first coined, that window was opaque, at best. Now we see very clearly in our doctor’s offices, in television ads, and, in the case of the old Drew Carey show, a bumper serving as the slate for his production company.”

At that juncture, Mrs. Tobias looks at three very powerful examples out of the hundreds, if not thousands, out there. You can hear her talk about all three where you will find links to each of them beginning with the utterly amazing work of Alexander Tsiaras.
