Our family stood in solidarity with a group protesting abortion in front of a Planned Parenthood facility in Ft. Collins, Colorado. One of the protesters was Linda O’Brien, a former pharmacist. A Catholic, Ms. O’Brien said she decided to actually quit her profession because modern pharmacy has gotten to the point where distributing things like artificial contraception (including such abortion causing agents as “the morning after pill”) has become common place almost everywhere. However, the use of these is expressly forbidden by the Catholic Church and Ms. O’Brien didn’t want to be in a postion of compromise on this… After the protest, we attended a meeting with representatives from pro-life groups throughout northern Colorado. During the meeting, Luke Hellwig, a student from the University of Northern Colorado, showed an absolutely excellent computer video presentation he’d designed about a pro-life weekend they were putting on at the school this Fall. One of the things these students do the week of the event is walk around the campus barefoot. When people ask, they plug the event and talk about their pro-life beliefs. The event is called Bearfoot for Babies (UNC’s mascott is: the bear) and features a host of pro-life speakers, 3,300 “memory crosses,” a “Dance for Life” (50’s Sock Hop), etc. It will be held Oct. 4th through 8th on campus.
