Morning Glory celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King this Monday with our beloved Monsignor Charles Pope! On abortion, Dr. King once said: “Cowardice asks the question, ‘is it safe?’; expediency asks the question, ‘is it politic?’; vanity asks the question, ‘is it popular?’; but conscience asks the question, ‘is it right?’; and there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but because conscience tells one it is right. ” We discuss his powerful words and what we can learn today within our own fight for the sanctity of ALL life.
Guests include pro-life pioneer Joe Scheidler of ProLife Action League. Scheidler is National Director of the Pro-Life Action League, a national pro-life educational and activist organization headquartered in Chicago. Joe left a career in public relations to become a full-time pro-life activist shortly after the U. S. Supreme Court issued its Roe v. Wade opinion in 1973. When his brand of on-the-streets direct action met with resistance from established pro-life organizations, he and his wife, Ann decided to found the Pro-Life Action League in 1980. It has been said that Joseph Scheidler defined pro-life direct action.
