"Today we march, tomorrow we vote"
News reports say that labor unions, left-wing pressure groups and Demoncrat activists organized and conducted the marches. These groups support aborting babies.
These realities mean that there is an urgent question that Cardinal Mahony, Bishop Zavala, the other bishops and the clergy need to answer right away: Are you going to let pro-aborts turn Monday's 2 million (or so) marchers into future long-term voters for pro-abortion politicians?
Unfortunately, as we know, the answer probably is, "Yes." For one thing, many of the hierarchy and clergy themselves are long-term voters for Demoncrat pro-abortion politicians. For another, our spiritual leaders are conspicuously silent in the pulpit about abortion, and especially about Papal and Vatican statements, and even U.S. bishops' official statements, that the right to life needs to be the primary consideration for Catholic politicians and voters.
So, as usual, it is up to us pro-life Catholics to go to work. On any number of fronts, we need to explain to everyone, including our illegal neighbors, that Demoncrats and some Republicans are pro-abortion and that it is wrong to support them and vote for them. We also need to urge our hierarchy and clergy to make these points; but good luck on that. Let us pray!
