Staying Focused

Those of us in the pro-life movement as well as those sympathetic to the cause must remind ourselves every so often that everything we do must reflect our love for life, how every single person began as a single cell, and how we are all going to die some day.
We must also continue to be attentive of news and current events to that we may be prepared for anything we may need to do to advance the pro life agenda.

One such event is the upcoming visit by Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. Fr. Pavone was very helpful to the Schindler family during the Terri Schiavo tragedy. He will speak following the 5:30 pm mass at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in central Phoenix. He will address the importance of staying focused and remaining vigilant as the "world' attempts to divert us from the work we need to do.

On a different note, another reason why the Senate needs to confirm honest judicial candidates is to prevent the type of ruling that came out of Mississippi yesterday.

In that case a federal judge struck down a state law that required 2nd trimester abortions be done in a licensed outpatient facility or a hospital. Apparently the state legislature did not want anymore women dying from late term abortions and sought to craft a law to protect women from this deadly procedure.

But "choice" trumps common sense in the courts these days and the very notion that someone would have to have competent medical treatment for a dangerous operation that kills women was too much for the abortionists in Mississippi. Too much to for a federal judge who is more in league with abortion providers and less with the constitution and the rule of law.
