Working Hand in Glove
By Dave Andrusko
In the age of the Internet and instant communications, newspapers such as NRL News have become close collaborators with their online electronic siblings. In our case it is National Right to Life’s outstanding webpage found at www.nrlc.org.
Joseph Landrum’s story on page ten tells you a lot about many of the resources provided by NRLC’s Education Department. A number of them are online and free of charge.
But there is also a daily feature, known as Today’s News & Views, which, if you are not receiving, you ought to be. Five days a week, every week, TN&V is sent to thousands of pro-life readers.
The feature combines analyses of the headline stories of the day, book reviews, commentaries on commentaries, and updates of NRL News stories and breaking news from the NRL Federal Legislation Department. Many people consider it absolutely must reading.
Receiving TN&V does make a difference, a point illustrated by a one-sentence e-mail sent to me this morning. Referring to a column of the previous day, it simply said, I found that information on Roe v. Wade to be very interesting." That was it.
Thirty two years and over 45 million abortions later only a small percentage of the American people have the first idea what Harry Blackmun and his cronies inflicted on this nation. Our job is to increase that percentage, day in and day out. One way--in many ways the best, certainly the most inexpensive--is via the internet.
TN&T tries to be both a primer on the basics of abortion and a more advanced text for veterans who thirst for a deeper understanding of the ramifications of taking 1.3 million unborn lives each year. But TN&V can only have as much influence as the readers decide it will have..
TN&V relies on its readers to pass editions on to family, friends, colleagues, and ministers. I also count on you to encourage them to join so that TN&V is sent to them automatically five days a week, every week.
And remember, this battle will be won by young people, who are infinitely more computer-savvy than their elders. Please, be sure to alert them to the availability of Today’s News & Views found at www.nrlc.org.
