We begin our repentance by renouncing our cowardice, by regretting our silence, by rejecting our fear of risk and loss, our skewed priorities and attachments. Indeed, the fight against abortion does not start in the political arena or in abortion clinics. The obstacles to a culture of life, and the enemies arrayed against it, are not primarily the massive funding of Planned Parenthood or the pervasive bias in the secular media. The biggest obstacles are inside of us. They are the lies we tell ourselves, the fears to which we willingly submit, and the pretense of ignorance about what we really have to do next.
--Fr. Frank Pavone, Abolishing Abortion
