It's tough to be a motivated pro-lifer over time. Being active in pro-life affairs means constantly recruiting and watching other people burn out, get tired, and try to focus on less emotionally exhausting things.
We've all felt it, we all know the emotional drag. The let-downs by politicians, political parties, organizations and even churches and religious leaders. We work, act and try hard to win hearts and minds, support legal and political change, and try to work on the culture.
Too often it never seems like it's changing, that the pro-life movement is stuck. It's hard to keep perspective.
