It is interesting to note how many Protestants came to the Roman Catholic faith because of their involvement in pro-life work. No doubt they worked through the issues and recognized that the Roman Catholic Church was the only one with a relatively strong stance against contraceptives. Pro-life leaders who converted to Catholicism include: Lila Rose, Randall Terry, Norma McCorvy, Bryan Kemper, the late Bernard Nathanson. I'm sure there are others.

Why The Pro-Life Movement Is Not Making Significant Strides
I too have shared this concern, and a key cause for the sluggishness of progress can be laid at the embrace - by pro-life people - of contraception. Witness the debacle of the Manhattan Declaration. I refused to sign it for it danced all around the key issue of contraception. Let's face it. Before Roe v Wade there was Griswold v Connecticut and the 1930 Lambeth Conference. We failed, and still fail, to heed the words of Humanae Vitae. Only when we cease compromise on contraception will the Culture of Life have any chance to take hold and grow.
