'Love for Littletons'; Author says economy has violated tenets of Catholicism
By Matt C. Abbott

A pro-life stalwart needs our prayers: Jim Littleton.

For a number of years, the husband and father of 14 spent his Saturday mornings sidewalk counseling in front of the horrid Family Planning Associates abortion facility near downtown Chicago. During that time he counseled many abortion-bound women, and, according to veteran pro-life activist Tim Murphy, "Many children are alive today because of his efforts." In fact, Jim is featured in the Pro-Life Action League video No Greater Joy, along with a baby and mother he helped save from abortion. He's also participated in numerous prayer vigils and demonstrations.

Jim, 51, is suffering from Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. His friends and neighbors are holding a benefit for his family. Visit www.loveforlittletons.com for more information.
