Astronauts Help Launch New Pro Life Ad
Dr. Kerwin calls ad ‘great tribute’ to 40th anniversary of Apollo 11Joshua Mercer at CatholicVote.org
HOUSTON – Dr. Joseph Kerwin, the first American doctor in outer space, joined other former NASA greats today at a press conference in Houston to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11’s historic landing on the moon with a new ad by CatholicVote.org.
“For thousands of years, man has looked at the moon and the stars in awe. But forty years ago, we did the unthinkable: We landed on the moon. This new ad by CatholicVote.org captures the spirit of this historic mission by highlighting the potential of human life,” said Dr. Kerwin.
Gene Krantz, best known as the flight director at mission control manager during Apollo 13, was also on hand to premiere the ad.
Brian Burch, President of CatholicVote.org, said that putting a man on the moon was once thought impossible.
“Neil Armstrong will go down in history as one of the greatest explorers. His long journey to the moon started, as each of us started, with a small kick in our mother’s womb,” said Burch. “Today, we salute the astronauts of Apollo 11 and all other brave pioneers who give meaning to the potential of every human life.”
