Evidence of Light at the end of the Tunnel

Tom Hoopes, writer in Residence at Benedictine College St. Joseph, Missouri, in an essay on NCR's web site has a very hopeful analysis of the current state of the life issue. Here is a brief quote. Read the entire posting at the link below.
'... it’s true: Becoming pro-life is transformative. You have probably seen it in others, and you may even have seen it in yourself.
People who become pro-life start to be hopeful about the potential of the good and wise about the ways of the world.
They become hopeful about the future: "Lives are worth bringing into the world." They become wise about the sexual revolution: "Promiscuity hurts women and children — and men, too."
They become compassionate: "We should help women, not corner them into abortion." They see through the world’s easy answers: "They are willing to kill for a lifestyle."
They embrace science: "I don’t have to pretend that’s not a human being anymore." They become savvy about the abortion industry and its politicians: "They know what it is, but they do it for money."
They see the importance of marriage and responsibility: "We owe it to children to tame and direct our passions." They wake up about the mainstream media: "They are not telling people the truth; they are just serving an agenda." '
