The Pro-Life supporters were holding signs and waving to all of those who drove by. The peaceful protest is a part of the 40 Days for Life campaign. Success is hard to measure for the group, but they say they are making progress.

"We have heard from the three pro-life clinics in town, the pregnancy care centers that there has been an increase in the number of women coming to them to find more positivealternatives," said Chris Moleski, Campaign Coordinator.

The group from Tallahassee joins thousands of people across the United States who were lining their hometown streets today as well. For a complete list of the groups campaign events click the link below.

    Joe, you may be interested to know that the Florida Pregnancy Care Network, Inc. is a statewide alliance of pregnancy support organizations that DO help help children once they are born.

The network consists of 74 Florida pregnancy resource organizations, located throughout the state, which provide direct services to pregnant women and their families. These services, including counseling, referral, material support, training and education, help meet the emotional and physical needs of pregnant women and assist them in preparing to parent their baby or place their baby for adoption.

    Bob, Thank you for reminding people that pro-life is not limited to anti abortion. Life may begin at conception but it ends at death. One who is pro-life must support life at all ages. This support includes, but is not limited to, antiwar and being against capital punishment.

    The pro life movement is great - if they would only do more to support children once they are born. I was a foster parent for several years. Most of the pro-life people thought that was great but when asked if they would do it always had an excuse not to. In fact I met very few foster parents who were involved in the pro life movement. That is not to say they were for abortion, but they were not out pushing an agenda, just caring for unwanted children. Now I would ask which is worse, to have an unwanted child and put them through a life of misery often ending in jail or death on the street - or having an abortion? The moral issue aside, having an unwanted and unloved child costs everyone money, through everything from medical care and foster care to jail expenses. Yet most of adamant the pro life people can point to nothing that they have done to help solve the problem, only to perpetuate it. Pro life is great, but how about helping with the care of the unwanted?
