From the late U.S. Representative Henry Hyde:

When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that terrible moment, the final judgment, I’ve often thought, as Bishop Fulton Sheen wrote, that is a moment of terrible loneliness. You have no advocates there, you are there standing before God and a terror will rip through your soul like nothing you can imagine. I really think those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard very beautifully and very loudly in the next world and I think they will plead for everyone who has been in the movement. They will say to God, “Spare them, because they loved us.” And God will look at us and say not, “Did you succeed?” but “Did you try?”

We just have to keep on trying.
