Pro-Life Freedom Rides

Anyone heard about what's happening, starting this week, in Atlanta and Birmingham? Priests for Life is behind the Pro-Life Freedom Rides, and Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as Fr. Frank Pavone and others involved in the movement on a national level, are leading the effort. Of course, they've gotten some counter-protesters, but that's par for the course.

So what do you think about this new technique to bring awareness to what abortion really is? What kind of successes or failures do you think might occur because of piggy-backing off of the Civil Rights movement? Unlike the Civil Rights movement, this seems to be predominantly Catholic, although there are obviously Protestant groups and secular groups involved as well.

Also, I've personally found that if I can get someone to genuinely understand the pro-life mentality of respect for the human dignity of every single person, they are more able to understand other teachings of the Catholic Church. Being a pro-life activist was the gateway that led me back to becoming a faithful, practicing Catholic again.

As a side note, I had the pleasure of meeting Alveda King last winter. She is a lovely person, and so, so dedicated to the pro-life movement. She has the ability to make a huge difference in building a culture of life in the U.S.
