MCCL thoughts for life By Carol Karels Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life are committed to changing the law that makes aborting a baby legal. They are also committed to informing women on how they can get help so they are not forced to abort their , babies and ways we can be involved 'to help. Politically they are involved because by having laws that make abortion a way of birth control they must expose which candidates are pro-life. This year it is black and white, two are totally in favor of abortion and one is 100 percent pro- life. Please find a way to be involved, we can't go on assuming or hoping others are doing what we want.
