Between now and Election Day, pro-life people should focus on gathering the “low-hanging fruit.” Winning elections for pro-life candidates is not so much a matter of converting people, but of counting them. So many people who are already converted, and think the way we do, are not paying attention to off-year elections, or are going to forget to vote, or are going to need a ride to the polls, or are simply not going to know who the pro-life candidates are. Each of us can change that if we simply reach out to those who think as we do, and make sure they vote.
If you had to gather as many oranges as possible in an hour, you wouldn’t spend time climbing to the top of the trees. You’d grab the low-hanging fruit that is easier to reach. So it is with votes.
