Register features correspondent Tim Drake said an award for a pro-life article he wrote was "especially poignant" for him because his own life had been "threatened by abortion when I was still in the womb." Drake, of St. Cloud, Minn., was given the first Bernardin-O'Connor Award for Pro-Life Journalism by Priests for Life on May 30 at the annual Catholic Press Association convention in Atlanta. His article, "Catholic Universities Push Abortions to Students," was published in the Register's Dec 22-28, 2002, issue. The award is named for the late Cardinals Joseph Bernardin of Chicago and John O'Connor of New York.
