We must help women considering abortion

After much soul-searching, it seems to me that Catholics like me who want to reduce the number of abortions have two choices. The first choice is to volunteer at and contribute to organizations that counsel and help women with difficult pregnancies. These organizations save babies. The second choice is to complain about Catholic politicians who are not pro-life.

Criticizing Catholic politicians has not, to my knowledge, ever saved even one baby. The choice is therefore clear to me. We Catholics who abhor abortion should put more of our efforts into helping women who are contemplating abortion. This is not only the right thing to do but the more effective thing to do as well.
