I never fail to be surprised by the awesome power of Twitter. And, if I ever doubted its capacity to geometrically expand the reach of National Right to Life News Today, those doubts were erased today.

As you recall, last week I asked you to pitch in so that NRL News Today could be read by many thousands more pro-lifers. One of the suggestions was to add a link to a particular story and send it out using your Twitter account.

That’s exactly what columnist/author/tweeter extraordinaire Michelle Malkin did today with my story about 24-year-old Tony Reaves, a mother of one, who died Friday night after undergoing a second-trimester abortion at a Chicago Planned Parenthood clinic. (If you missed it, you can read the story at

There were so many “hits” we could barely keep the link functional. That’s the kind of “problem” I would love to have every day!

Obviously, the positive impact of a very prominent columnist is welcomed every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

But it’s the contributions of thousands of pro-lifers readers using their personal Twitter accounts that will make or break this campaign to offer a tremendous source of pro-life education to a much broader audience.

(BTW: you can also post your favorite stories through Facebook along with a personal comment on the story. If you have a Pinterest account, by all means pin the stories that interest you.)

Thanks so much, and do let me know that you are helping NRL News Today out by dropping me a line at
