Dec2014Page1When you’re about the business of trying to protect the vulnerable, it seems as if almost every day you encounter examples of the best in human nature and the worst. That’s what happened today, as you read in posts on Friday’s edition of NRL News Today.

We have the incredible story of freshman Lauren Hill who accomplished one item in her bucket list—playing in a college basketball game—in spite of terminal brain disease. A local television station did a powerfully moving tribute to a young woman who says, “I’ve done God’s work, what He sent me here to do. Maybe I’m not done yet. Maybe that’s why I’m still here.”

At the other end, the Supreme Court has turned down an appeal from abortionist Kermit Gosnell, thrice-convicted of first degree murder. Even by Gosnell’s bizarre standards, the basis of his appeal is incredible. We’re writing about that as well.

I mention that to remind you that our monthly digital edition of NRL News supplements National Right to Life News Today’s Monday through Saturday coverage that more and more of you are receiving free of charge each day to your email inbox. If you are not, take out 60 seconds and sign up at

With all these demands on your time this Christmas season, I trust you are taking a few minutes each day to dig into one of the 35 pages worth of news stories, columns, editorials, and human interest features that make up the December digital edition of National Right to Life News.

Where can you access them? Just click on and you will be taken there a second or two.

How are we giving you a flavor of what you will find this month in the “pro-life newspaper of record”?

Each day this week, we’re reprinting one of the stories from the issue. On Monday it was NRLC President Carol Tobias encouraging column. On Tuesday it is an interview with Jacki Ragan, director of NRLC’s State Organizational and Development Department. My chats with Jacki always provide a font of information and inspiration.

Wednesday we recounted the latest chapter in the career of Michigan abortionist Robert Alexander’s whose license was finally suspended. On Thursday, there was a request from Autos for Life to donate a vehicle to help sustain our educational outreach.

And today we are updating a story from NRL Political Director Karen Cross that first appeared in the December issue. There is even more good news since that electronic edition first went on line.

After you read a story that you particularly like, please be sure to pass along selected stories (if not the entire issue) to your social network contacts. That is how the message of hope and love will spread.
