"Jane Roe" of Roe v Wade Has a New Attitude About Abortion

Greg Schleppenbach informs me that one of the centerpieces of the next Virtue Media campaign here in Nebraska will be their spot featuring Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" of Roe v Wade.

See the short TV spot right here.

Greg writes, "Last year’s effort was highly successful raising nearly $230,000 throughout Nebraska (including $21,000 from the Knights) which paid for roughly 9500 pro-life television ads reaching most of the state. More than 1.2 million Nebraskans saw these pro life ads at least 6 times including 99 percent of the young women in the most vulnerable age groups. The result was 580 responses from abortion-vulnerable women and 1120 responses from post-abortive mothers."

Vital Signs Ministries also made a donation to this remarkably fine and effective educational outreach ($10,000, for us a really substantial gift) and we are certainly hoping many more will get involved this year. Yes, that means you non-Catholics as well!

If you would like to be involved, please contact us soon.
