Shooting Ourselves in the Foot?

Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, has written an email to those on her mailing list that begins this way:
Congress is on the verge of authorizing the greatest single expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade - and your tax dollars will be paying for it.

For years, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and their pro-abortion allies have been quietly developing a formidable grassroots army. In its latest annual report, Planned Parenthood's Action Network claims to have recruited "more than 200,000 new supporters," with "affiliates [that] reach every corner of America." Planned Parenthood has also been amassing a considerable "war chest" to spread its pro-abortion message to vulnerable Americans. Last year, it reported a $1 billion budget and a profit of $85 million!
Dr. Yoest's email is not only informative but it is also pleading for financial contributions to help offset this massively financed push on the part of the pro-abortion forces. All non-profits are today suffering from the economic hard times we all experience, and for one non-profit to call its supporters' attention to the funding needs of another non-profit may not be the most expedient thing to do under the circumstances. As much as the Cornerstone Forum would welcome your tax-deductible donations at this 2009 eleventh hour, I would nevertheless like to direct you to the remarkably fine work Americans United for Life is doing. When the history of the struggle against the "silent holocaust" of abortion is written, AUL will have a place of honor comparable to the one we now rightly accord to the opponents of slavery.

HERE is where you can make your financial donation.

If there's a bit left over after you give AUL a little help, the Cornerstone Forum would be most grateful for your help as well. In any case, keep us in your prayers.
