Earlier this year I excitedly embarked on a new writing project: covering the national 40 Days for Life campaign, a prayer vigil taking place in front of abortion providers.
The plan was to write a diary-style piece featuring interviews from 40 Days leaders, as well as from advocates for women’s heath care. Unfortunately, after about two weeks, it became harder and harder to find people willing to be interviewed. Phone calls and emails — both to pro-life and pro-choice advocates — went unanswered. One man who agreed to be interviewed said he had been disturbed by what he found on my website. I took it as a compliment.
Oh, well. These things happen. On to the next project.
