In her Jan. 27 column “Protection for the Unborn Is a Lifelong Effort,” Ruth Ann Dailey writes: “Government programs can provide a minimal material safety net, but they can never give the one-to-one mentoring — the love, frankly — that truly transforms lives.”

However, she fails to note that this degree of mentoring is achievable because many faith-based organizations (such as Catholic Charities) receive significant funding from the federal government. In some cases we taxpayers are providing half or sometimes even more of these organizations’ annual budgets.
