Dennis M. Howard column
Dennis M. Howard is founder and president of The Movement for a Better America, a non-profit, pro-life educational organization. Before starting MBA in 1995, he had a long and successful career in journalism and creative marketing. He has been writing since 1950, when he helped launch The Sun Herald of Kansas City, America's last attempt at publishing a Catholic daily. He later served as a writer, editor, and consultant to some 20 magazines and newspapers, and later became a creative and marketing consultant to companies like Waring, Cessna, Toshiba, Matchbox, Baker Industries, AT&T and others. He is available as a strategic marketing consultant to other pro-life organizations, and is currently writing a book on the economic impact of abortion.

As a researcher, Dennis correctly forecast the market crashes of 1974, 1987, and 2000 well before they happened. He estimates that the U.S. toll in lost GDP because of abortion already exceeds $42 trillion and will continue rising at a rate of $2.5 trillion a year. While he sees a major crisis still ahead for America and the world, he is not a long term pessimist.

He says, "Crises are often the seedbed for moral, spiritual, cultural and economic regeneration. The ferment currently going on throughout the West will ultimately lead to a cultural resurgence unless we are indeed in a terminal period of human history. I agree with the late Cardinal O'Connor who said, 'Paradoxially, I have a great deal of hope because people are worried, because people are fearful . . . they're looking for some kind of security, some kind of integrity of life, and they see it threatened every day.' I would just add that we have no greater enemy than our own apathy in the face of evil."
