By Jane Clark Scharl, Crisis Magazine - On November 4, this year’s 40 Days for Life campaign ended. During the campaign, a million Americans committed to fasting and praying for an end to abortion and healing for those affected by this tragedy. Even though the 2019 campaign has ended, there are many ways for pro-life Americans to continue to work towards making America a country where abortion is unthinkable, let alone legal… The organization 40 Days for Life grasps the fundamental challenge faced by pro-life Americans: changing our nation’s laws is obviously important, but even more important is changing the hearts and minds of our fellow citizens.
By Michael Pakaluk, EWTN News - Let’s be clear that a thriving chicken-sandwich business that gives away large portions of its profits to food banks and homeless shelters is exemplary and good. That Chick-fil-A follows the spirit of the old, sensible “blue laws,” in these times of exaggerated consumerism, and honors the Lord by closing on Sundays, giving its employees a day of rest — that is extremely good, as well... Chick-fil-A certainly has no obligation to do more than these things. It’s unjust, then, to describe their change of policy as “capitulation.” How can acting in an exemplary way, not violating any duties, be justly described as a “capitulation”? It cannot.
