A Gentle Light on the Subject

ve8QAd   |   July 01, 2002

Are you familiar with the age-old custom of luminaria? If so, you know of its quiet beauty and pleasing, soft gentle light. Often done at Christmastime, it has become a cherished tradition that, without fail, elicits a positive response.

Chapter affiliates of Right to Life Committee of New Mexico are using this charming visual medium to shed light on the abortion issue. This year, for their January 22nd observance, Gallup Right to Life set up 1,000 luminaria in front of the Gallup Cultural Center. Each paper bag bore the names of five children, representing the 5,000 abortions performed in New Mexico during 2001.

That same evening, another 1,000 luminaria were displayed by Albuquerque Right to Life at the Mt. Carmel Cemetery. It was part of a memorial service held at sundown, which included a speaker and music.

The public’s reaction has been encouraging. Dauneen Dolce, Executive Director of Right to Life Committee of New mexico said, “People feel this is a positive way to talk about a negative subject. When we get the public’s attention, we are able to educate them. The number of abortions in New Mexico really opened some eyes.”

This positive display makes a soft, gentle statement, compatible with the image of babies and their mothers. An appealing message will reflect well on your cause and organization, while changing the hearts and minds of those who see it. If you would like more information on this pro-life luminaria, contact Right to Life Committee of New Mexico, 2800 San Mateo NE, Suite 107, Albuquerque, NM 87110. Phone 505.881.4563
