Vanderburgh Right to Life touts itself as the second largest Right to Life organization in the country. It also says Evansville is the largest US metropolitan area without an abortion clinic. Tuesday, the group turned out an estimated 2,000 supporters for its annual banquet, filling the entire exhibition hall at the Centre. The group is pushing a pro-life agenda this election year, and as always, remains committed to fully overturning Roe v. Wade, the supreme court decision which legalized abortion in 1973. But keynote speaker Cal Thomas, a conservative columnist and Fox News contributer, says the political arena may not be where the pro-life movement can gain the most ground. "I dont put my trust in politicians, you put your trust in politicians and youre always going to be disappointed," Thomas said before making remarks before the banquet. Thomas believes a law mandating women seeking abortions see an ultrasound image of the fetus would create a seismic shift in the number of terminated pregnancies in the US every year. Hes advocating federal or state laws requiring such a mandate, estimating that as many as 90% of women seeking abortions would opt out. "What were talking about is empowering women, giving women more information," Thomas said. Thomas says materialism is the real driving factor behind the perception of abortion in the US. "The problem isnt in Washington or Indianapolis, the problem is in the human heart, and to the extent we continue to worship the golden calf and the Dow Jones Industrial Average and put ourselves before others produced abortion , divorce and many of the other social problems we see today," he said.
