American Right To Life gave a presentation titled Pro-life Industry vs. Pro-life Ministry to a packed house at the Institute on the Constitution. See below for a list of organizations that have morphed from ministry into industry where principles and a vision for victory have been traded away for long-term fundraising strategies, comfortable retirement benefits, and a seat at the table with politicians who only use them. For one example of what happens when a ministry becomes an industry, see AmericanRTL.org/pba, including this:
$250 Million Dollar PBA Fundraiser: The PBA "ban" was a cash cow. An ARTL spreadsheet, compiled by a Michigan CPA volunteering for ARTL, documents that the pro-life industry raised more than a quarter of a billion dollars in it's 15-year effort to secure a "ban" that never had the ability to save a single child. The PBA debacle was great though as a long-term industry fundraiser. And as Dr. James Dobson eventually admitted in writing about this industry fiasco, "Ending partial birth abortion... does not save a single human life."
