The L.A. Times reported Tuesday that "about 2,000" attended the funeral, including prominent pro-abortion politicians such as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and L.A. County Supervisor Gloria Molina.
A Times photo shows "a church worker" as he "sets up a photo" of Mr. Firebaugh.
A Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California "Pro-Choice Scorecard" for 2004 (click on the title of this post to see it) listed Mr. Firebaugh as "100% pro-choice."
We should pray for the repose of Mr. Firebaugh's soul, of course, but what message does a high-profile Cathedral funeral for him send Catholics and the rest of the general public?
