On June 24, 2016, I gave this speech on Faithful Citizenship at the Ruah Woods Conference Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. I followed Father Frank Pavone, head of Priests for Life. I shared my experiences in the Catholic outreach efforts of George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, as well as subsequent efforts on behalf of pro-life politicians. In the second half of the speech, I listed ten obstacles that the Church often places in the way of laypersons who want to participate in politics on behalf of defending life.
