Thoughts for life This has been a good year as far as electing pro-life candidates and passing bills but it is not a time to rest. The following is a quote from Leo LaLonde's editorial, he is president of MCCL. "What do long distance runners do when they pull ahead in a race? They don't slow down and take it easy, assuming they have already won. Neither do they turn around to marvel at how far they've come. No - they press on, fixed on the goal of winning the race! After 35 years of struggling to protect the right to life, some of us are weary and would like to rest. Unfortunately, our work is far from finished.
