JUST BETWEEN YOU & ME FALL 2017 VOLUME 39, NUMBER 3 “Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a child, shall not enter into it.” —Luke 18:17 CHRIST SPOKE THESE words to His disciples, reminding them that the world does not look at Him Who is Truth through the eyes of a child but rather in a jaded way that is influenced by hatred of His saving power. He was referring to the Pharisees of His day who publicly claimed to obey the laws of their tradition but in their hearts harbored attitudes of disdain toward all that Christ taught among them. This was so then, and it is so now in our own time. And this is one reason why we are called to love our enemies and pray for them. It is why we are servants of a loving Father Who expects us to imitate Christ and never count the cost. As we defend the vulnerable from the many tools of death among the enemies of life, we trust in God’s providence, for we know that alone we can do nothing, but in Him all things are possible. So, when we read, for example, of the horrific propaganda that is being taught to our children in the school systems of America, we do not curse the darkness. We shed light on the truths of properly educating our children through our ALL Culture of Life Studies Program. When we hear members of the media praise the deadly ways of Planned Parenthood and decry those among us who strive to end their taxpayer funding, we do not scream as they do. Rather, we employ the tools of our ALL Stop Planned Parenthood arsenal and spread the truth as far and wide as we can, with your help. Why? Because we have heeded the profound simplicity of Christ’s words. We know that if we do not receive His truth and spread it with childlike love for our fellow human beings, we will fail. We are His feet and His Hands; in Him is the glory and the healing of this ailing land. Praise Him always.

letters OUR READERS RESPOND We are making progress I always read your magazine and enjoy it very much! We are making progress and I hope and pray all abortion will stop! Robert W. Wolf | Minnesota Reading Roe v. Wade & Doe v. Bolton together is crucial In the opening line of your page 6 article, “Forgiven & set free,” there’s a reference to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision handed down by the Supreme Court. It, along with its twin decision, Doe v. Bolton, were a death sentence of millions of our preborn citizens! Doe v. Bolton removes the limits of Roe v. Wade and extends the reach of abortion to millions more of our preborn citizens. The court said Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton should be read together! If you read the May issue of the New Oxford Review, on page 6, you’ll find my letter, “The Pro-Life Movement’s Major Blunder,” you’ll see that to ignore the existence and the educational power of the Roe v. Wade’s companion decision, Doe v. Bolton, is to help the abortion industry! Charles N. Marrelli | California Forgiven and set free (Summer 2017) Such a beautiful story. Regardless of one’s belief on this topic, he or she should read this story. Mary Warden | Facebook Correction “I have just finished the Summer 2017 issue and got quite a bit out of it. Thank you for that. I do, however, have one concern…. I was puzzled by the unedited use of ‘clinic’ in several places in the summer CLM. ‘Planned Parenthood clinic’ appears on p. 6, and ‘abortion clinic’ on p. 23.” Bob Plotz | Michigan Thank you, Mr. Plotz, for pointing out this editorial oversight. You are correct that we should not use terms lending credibility to the lie that abortion mills are legitimate healthcare facilities. Indeed, killing a child through abortion is never an authentic or necessary medical intervention. For a list of terms—including “health clinic/abortion clinic”—which need to be dropped from pro-life vocabulary, ALL has prepared the following list at Check out our Editor’s Blog every Friday for insightful commentary on pro-life topics and news—! EDITOR’S NOTE Healing from miscarriage can be quite hard. Healing from abortion—once recognized for the horror that it is—can be extremely difficult. One talented woman has combined prenatal science with art to help mothers with such healing, as well as open hearts and minds by providing people with lifelike baby models that allow them to hold the truth of a preborn child’s humanity in their palms. God’s Little Ones provides tangible, realistic models of preborn children at different stages of development to offer healing for grieving mothers as well as palpable instruction on the reality and beauty of preborn human beings. Definitely check out Diane Stark’s article, “God’s Little Ones,” on p. 26! We’d love to hear from you!
