Last night I grandly kicked off my fall speaking schedule at the Grand Traverse Area Right to Life banquet in MI’s beautiful upper peninsula. I must say I like this photo, by the Traverse City Record-Eagle. I’m describing the baby I held at Christ Hospital only 10 years ago, believe it or not. Seems like a lifetime ago…

Here’s the Record-Eagle’s related story….


There were over 700 people in attendance, a very nice event. I was happy to catch up with friends Barbi Aumiller of MI RTL and Marie Hahnenberg of American Life League.
I love MI RTL banquets. So well done. Last night Brian Cusack announced its new research and media project, “The Great Disconnect,” to figure out why so many people acknowledge that abortion is murder but still condone or commit it.
I’m off in a few minutes to speak to a Catholic high school assembly (sorry, don’t know the name yet) and then will fly home. Hope the Windy City isn’t as windy as it was yesterday taking off!
