First, Father Frank Pavone, thank you for having the heart to reach out to Mrs. Nancy Pelosi to remind her of the position of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of life. She says that she is a responsible and respectful Catholic, so maybe she just hasn’t had time to remember the teachings of the Church. How can she say that she is a practicing Catholic when she admits her faith doesn’t line up with the teachings of the church? I pray that thousands will sign on to your open letter to Mrs. Pelosi, and demand some answers to the hard questions you are asking her.
My question is this? Why won’t she listen to the cries of the babies and their mothers who keep dying from abortions? Does she really not care that women and babies are suffering great pain and dying from so called legal abortions? In RECALL ABORTION, Janet Morana tells about all of the dangers that mothers may not even know about when they are considering abortion. After an abortion, the babies usually end up dead, and sometimes mothers die too. Why won’t Nancy Pelosi listen?
Yesterday, Glenn Beck and I were discussing abortion on The Blaze. Glenn tends to just speak from his heart and admit his shortcomings, which is hard to do for most of us. Glenn said that he doesn’t like to deal with the abortion issue. He says it makes it uncomfortable, but when God told him that if he doesn’t deal with how wrong abortion is, God will get someone else to do it. I got the strong impression that Glenn is more uncomfortable with letting God down than not talking about abortion. And as you know, since you are right on the firing line all the time, we need help! We need many more people to join you and address Mrs. Pelosi and everyone else who is avoiding the uncomfortable truth that abortion hurts women and kills babies and sometimes their mothers. I’ll be helping tomorrow during the Tweetfest and I hope others will join in to demand that Mrs. Pelosi answer the questions.
Our friend Kevin Burke keeps telling people about how abortion hurts fathers too, how they regret their lost fatherhood. His blog today is so very compelling. I’m glad that he shared the Flypsyde testimony, and there’ the mention of a trip to California with some of the authors of LIFE AT ALL COSTS. By the way, it is such a blessing for Kevin, me and all the Priests for Life Associates, staff and well wishers to join you in this constant battle for life.
Finally I’ll close after this last news note before this blog begins to sound like a rant. My youngest sons, young men in their early twenties, have been following the Trayvon Martin murder and George Zimmerman’s trial. You may recall that I once said that Trayvon’s death was a “late, late term abortion because he was killed in the prime of life. Too many young people are dying today, the youngest being the babies in the womb.
I know that there are many civil rights battles going on right now, and I am very grateful that people are paying attention to everything from love and marriage, who has the right to vote, who will be able to go to college, how should we treat immigrants, who can have a job and so many other issues. However, I join you in working harder to keep the truth about abortion and the painful impact it has on our families and communities before Mrs. Pelosi and indeed all of our leaders, be they spiritual or political.
