FROM RIGHT TO LIFE
right created by the Supreme Court in Roe is a constitutional right of some
human beings to kill other human beings. I do not mean for my descript-tion
to be provocative, but simply direct – blunt about facts. One need not
presume that the human fetus has a right not to be killed in order to
recognize that, as a descriptive matter, Roe creates a right for one class
of human beings to kill other human beings.” (University
of St. Thomas Law professor Michael Paulson).
PROTECTION FOR THE UNBORN:
The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has declared Monday, January 22, 2018,
a National Day of Prayer and Penance for the Legal Protection of Unborn
Children. The Diocesan Mass for Life will take place on Monday, January
22, at 10:30am at the Cathedral, with The Most Rev. Martin J. Amos,
Retired Bishop of Davenport, Iowa, as celebrant. All are invited to
participate and pray for an end to abortion.
