January, 2019

Dear friends and members of Mesa County Right to Life:
We want to wish all of you a Happy and Blessed New Year. Please join us for our annual Walk for Life to be held on Saturday, January 26th. We will gather for a rally near the steps of the Old County Courthouse at 6th and Rood at 12:00 noon. We hope to have a few students read their pro-life essays and then, after our key note speaker, we will walk through downtown Grand Junc-tion carrying pro-life signs. We will then regather in the parish hall at St. Joseph’s Church for chili and hot drinks and a chance to socialize.

The women’s march will be held on the Saturday before our event, on the 19th… and I am certain that many who are in favor of abortion are energized by the recent election and the fact that they have been turning out in large numbers for their events…

Please come out and join us! Please take a stand for life! Please let the whole world know that there are many right here in Mesa County that believe that life is sacred. Take a stand with us and tell the whole world that life is a gift from God that is meant to be treasured. Tell the world that life in the womb is not simply ‘a choice’ that can be disposed of as a matter of convenience.
Last year, we were heavily outnumbered… by more than 30 to 1… That is, we had about 130 people who came out and took a stand for life with us. The woman’s march, held just before our event, had more than 3000 people attend. I realize that this de-bate is not all about numbers… but in a certain sense, success or failure on life issues is about numbers. Let’s not be idle. Let’s not be apathetic. Let us mobilize and organize and strategize and continue to remind our neighbors, our co-workers and the whole world that life is to be cherished and protected from the moment of conception. Of course, life issues are women’s issues. But no one has the right to destroy innocent human life developing within the womb. This is the modern equivalent of the slaughter of the holy innocents! Come out and join us and take a stand for life!

We would like to leave you with this quote: Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women—Alice Paul, pro-life feminist.
We thank you for your continued support of Mesa County Right to Life, both in prayer and with your generous donations.
God Bless you and thank you for standing up for life!
