The Power of One ~ You!

These last few days before Election Day 2020 has pro-life folks scrambling everywhere, questioning every move, brainstorming on what we may have missed, trying to figure out if there is still time to make this or that happen.  Why?  Because of the stakes.  Because of the number of lives that will be lost if we lose.  Because losing is not an option.  

2020 has been a year for the books, and is any one of us not ready to see it over and done with?  At the same time it has made this election of 2020 more interesting, more complicated, more thought provoking, and far more demanding.  

In the midst of a pandemic, which kept many people home, and an economic turndown, which hurt everyone, to be effective for the babies we had to come up with new ideas for some tried and true activities that just were not feasible this year. 

But having to improvise proved yet again that necessity is the mother of invention. We’ve launched—and then piloted–several new, innovative ideas and projects that we hope will become a part of our staple for election time. 

So, what can you do to help make a difference in this election, in addition to what you are already doing? I know everyone is busy, I know everyone is running flat out and meeting themselves coming and going.  But we only have 7 days–168 hours—which includes what can be done on Election Day itself.  We need to spend a good deal of time helping where we can.  Here are a few suggestions:

~ Are you a telephone person?  Have time to make a few calls?  Email and she will put you to work.

~ Have you signed up to work the polls yet?  Contact your local GOP and just see if there is such a need.

~Email your friends and family, co-workers, Church friends, anyone you can think of and offer to talk to them about why you are voting as you are.

~Make sure your neighbors all have a ride to their voting location on Tuesday.  Sure, many people have voted early, but many more on Election Day. Complicating the situation not every place is open this year due to COVID.  Make sure your neighbors, friends, family, anyone you think might not have a ride to go vote, offer to pick them up and drive them.

~Go on social media and share our posts.  On Facebook it is National Right to Life, on Twitter it is @NRLC, on Instagram it is @nationalrighttolife, on Parler it is @NationalRTL

~And Pray.  Pray daily for as long as you can.  Pray for our nation, our leaders, the unborn, the candidates, pray for them all.  St. Augustine perhaps said it best: Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.

This is what we do at election time. After we ask for strength and guidance, we try to remember everything, think of everything, and think outside the box…because lives depend on it.  Innocent unborn lives depend on who will win on 11/3.

Jack Kemp, a great pro-life American politician, once said, “The power of one man or one woman doing the right thing for the right reason, and at the right time, is the greatest influence in our society.” 

True words for sure.  

President Trump is the most pro-life president of my lifetime.  He has done more for unborn babies than any president before him.  He is pro-life. He is a man of action. He makes things happen.  We need him for four more years.  Ever wonder precisely what all President Trump has done for the babies?  See the list compiled by NRL News Today Editor Dave Andrusko here [].  

This is why we cannot stop.  This is why we must make the most out of these 168 hours, these next 7 days. What motivates us?

The rightness of what we do, the rightness of our cause. 

The helplessness of the unborn child, the tenderness of our hearts.  

That we are the “lost cause” that will not quit until we win for the babies.  

Pro-Lifers are honored to do what we do.  It is a calling, and those called—like you–find it a way of life.  

Doing nothing for these next 7 days would be turning our backs on these babies.  

Not ever.
