Why does RTLO exist? The purpose for which RTLO is organized is to encourage among the general public an understanding of the dignity and worth of each human life, whatever his or her state or circumstances; to foster respect for human life before and after birth, particularly for the defenseless, the incompetent, the impaired and the incapacitated; to promote and encourage passage of amendatory and statutory measures which will provide protection and support for human life. Included in the protection and support are unborn children who are endangered by those birth control methods, commonly referred to as contraceptives, which are abortifacients in whole or part.

Letter from the President

(Written by Jerry Embry; a call to action!)
 
Recently, several undercover videos have been released that have shown the true horror of abortion. These videos have forced those who will look to recognize that atrocities are occurring on a scale not heard of since the Jewish Holocaust. After seeing how the Nazis treated the Jews and other minorities during WWII, the world vowed never again. Under the reign of Hitler, 6 million Jews were exterminated simply because they were Jewish. Many of the same ideas of creating a master race have seeped into American culture via Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. One of Sanger's goals was to rid the world of the negro population. Why? Because, in her view, they were inferior and you can't have inferior people breeding without spreading inferiority deeper into the human race.

The media seems all too complicit in having very little coverage of one of the biggest news stories of our time. It was not that long ago that Kermit Gosnell was tried (and convicted) for several counts of murder for aborting babies already born. We all remember the empty seats in the courtroom reserved for the press. Why are they unwilling to report the truth?

How we got here doesn't matter as much as what are we going to do now? There are no more excuses. No way of explaining it away. No arguments about women's healthcare. The videos have shown us all the proof we need that an American Holocaust is and has been happening right under our noses. Human life is valuable and sacred. All lives matter is not just a hashtag, it's the truth. Where are our leaders? Where are our churches? Pastors, priests, bishops, elders, mayors, commissioners or any other title you may hold, hear this. If you do not speak out against this great evil then God will not hold you blameless. Dietrich Bohnhoeffer said it well in saying, "not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." You have a responsibility to proclaim with boldness the truth to protect the innocent. Please know I believe that vast majority of your congregations and constituents are longing for you to take the lead in this and they will have your back. I am challenging each of you in positions of leadership to begin to speak out against this evil. You can no longer remain silent. You must stand up and we will stand up with you. Never again is now!
