Martinsburg, WV – Do you think the pro-life cause is winning in the battle for life? I certainly do. As I have watched over the last several years I have noticed trends that indicate that life is becoming the dominant belief held by most people. Some trends include election outcomes, media coverage, and language used by politicians and individuals alike. So when I came across this article by pro-life blogger/writer Trevin Wax it was not a surprise to me, but an encouragement.
In this well written piece Wax lists five reasons why he believes life is winning and the tide is turning in favor of the pro-life cause. These reasons (Public Opinion, The Media, Young People, The Third Wave and Abortion Advocates on the Defensive) are easily observable if one pays attention to what is happening in culture and society.
Read the article and pass it on to encourage someone else that is struggling with the issue. It might create another strong voice for life.

The pro-life cause is winning. In state legislatures, in the media, and in grassroots efforts to reduce the number of abortions, pro-life activists have put abortion rights advocates on defense. The pro-life movement certainly has hurdles to overcome before the United States can become a place where all human life is legally protected. Yet the eventual outcome is certain. Here are five reasons I believe we have reached a tipping point in favor of the pro-life cause.
1) Public Opinion
A majority of Americans surveyed in a recent Rasmussen poll, including a large percentage of those who identified themselves “pro-choice,” said they believe abortion is “morally wrong most of the time.” Last year, for the third consecutive time, Gallup found that more Americans accept the pro-life label, a result that led the polling firm to acknowledge “a real change in public opinion.”
