We sense that something is deeply amiss. "I think that's why we gather here today, to bear witness against that lie that a woman has the right to take a life in her womb." He believes that the United States is meant to be a nation which serves as "a model, but only if we open our hearts and minds to the mind of God." Opponents of slavery found the strength to fight because of their "moral creed," Keyes said, remind- ing the pro-life audience, "It is in that tradition that we come together tonight." During this century, a time that will "stink in the nostrils of history" because of the Holocaust and legal- ized abortion, the chief obstacle of evil has been the United States, Keyes said. But, he warned, "you can't claim God's will as the source of your rights and then disregard God's w'ill as the source of your actions." He cautioned the audi- ence that "we are at a critical time." 1 Pro-life display is shown at Mater DeL Mater Dei student Anne Schili studies the pro-life display. , i ,,ul A pro-life display, featuring essays and photographs, was shown at both Mater Dei High School, Evansville, and St. John the Baptist Church, Newburgh, last week The display was sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and Catholic Charities.

The struggle will not be won by dramatic speeches. It will be won where the battles of America's conscience have always been won: across the dinner table, at the workplace, and in the pulpit." 3 compares anti-abortion fight to anti-slavery battle
