“Pray. You’ll Need it. Your Cause Will Be Defeated.”

I have to admit, the “counterprotesters” at Saturday’s Defund Planned Parenthood rally in Boston were rather irritating, with their pink knit hats and loud snarky chants. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who thought so, since the police made them stop using their bull-horn. (The NewBostonPost described it as “Hymns vs. Obscenities.”) Unfortunately, that then meant the pro-life gathering I was asked to speak to couldn’t use their microphone and sound system. That’s why you see me standing on a snowbank, trying to shout over the chants of “keep your rosaries off my ovaries” and “pro-life men have got to go,” as I addressed our group.

I spoke of the hope of finally overturning Roe v. Wade if we could just get one more pro-life justice on the Supreme Court, and how I prayed that perhaps my children would not have to explain what an abortion was to their children, other than as a tragic and shameful part of history, like slavery.

As Father McNamara led us in prayer, I had to strain to follow his words amidst the cacophony of the abortion zealots. It was a microcosm of the Christian life in our culture- the great effort it takes to not let the truth get drowned out in the noise of taunts and competing narratives.  But, as one of the pro-life ladies shouted back, “You’re here because we are winning!” There is truth in that statement.  Planned Parenthood is scared, as they no longer have a loyal presidential administration to protect the millions of dollars in federal funds they are accustomed to receiving.

MFI is proud to be a voice for the unborn, and we will continue to stand for truth in the public square.

For our families,

These methods can have devastating

Happy Father’s Day from the MFI Team!

A father’s role in the home is crucial to the family’s well-being, and without his leadership, the family suffers. Without the leadership of fathers, society suffers too. As MFI’s Fatherlessness Report shows, children from single-parent homes, many without fathers, are at a greater risk of academic underachievement, youthful idleness, teen parenthood, and
