Recently, when I was working through one of life’s unavoidable problems, a friend offered me encouragement by saying, “I know this must be a difficult time for you.” Here was my response. “Thank you for your support and for being a friend. But let me share my perspective with you. No passing problem or sorrow can be as bad as the difficulty I live with every single day, namely, that thousands of my brothers and sisters are being slaughtered in their mothers’ womb by abortion. The world by and large is oblivious to it, the law protects the violence rather than the babies, and we’re afraid to do what it takes to stop it. That’s what makes for difficult times. There’s a strange but real consolation in looking evil in the face and fighting it.”
