Yesterday was a good day for pro-life matters: Gov. Bush saved Terri Schiavo from being starved to death and the US Senate passed a ban on partial-birth abortions. These are small steps on the pro-life ladder, but significant. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. So we must be encouraged by this progress.
Granted neither of these successes is assured. The forces of the culture of death will challenge both of these victories in court, but the final results will not be known for some time to come. In the meantime, let us thank God for our prayers being answered in both these cases.
