“Former federal prosecutors will testify at today’s House hearing on the pricing of fetal tissue that there is probable cause to believe that abortion businesses have violated federal law,” stated Fr. Pavone. “We know that they have been violating the law for decades; the panel’s work will confirm this.”

“I have listened to everything you said to me and have set a king over you” (1 Samuel 12:1).
Reflection: Pro-abortion politicians will often say to us, “I respect your views, but I have to represent all the people.” Our response? That’s what we’re trying to say to you. If you neglect the unborn, you are not representing all the people. Representing the people starts with protecting them. Yes, an elected official has to represent all the people. That means that we cannot draw artificial lines that say that some people aren’t really people after all.
Prayer: Lord, give us leaders who will indeed represent and protect all the people. Amen.
“In transforming culture so that it supports life, women occupy a place, in thought and action, which is unique and decisive. It depends on them to promote a ‘new feminism'” – The Gospel of Life, 99.
Reflection: The early feminist leader Susan B. Anthony said, “Abortion is child murder.” Women are equal in dignity to men because all human beings are equal in dignity. And “all” includes the human beings still living in the womb.
Prayer: Lord, how easy it is for people and for movements to forget the meaning of “equality.” Free the legitimate efforts for women’s advancement worldwide from the mistaken notion that this includes abortion. Amen!
“Mississippi has taken a courageous and righteous step toward protecting children in the womb from the barbarity of a dismemberment abortion. Gov. Phil Bryant, state legislators and every resident of Mississippi have reason to be proud today.”

“Naturally the Zika virus is a cause for concern, and we call upon governments and medical professionals to continue to develop appropriate treatments and interventions. But in no way does this justify recourse to abortion. The child in the womb is a patient too, and killing one’s patient is never an appropriate response.”
