Where are L.A. pro-life Democrat office-holders?
The new law had bipartisan support in both houses of the Louisiana legislature. It would give abortionists up to 10 years in prison and would fine them up to $100,000. Similar measures are pending in several other states. The Planned Parenthoods are furious.
Wonder if the Louisiana lawmakers know they are following the advice of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta? In 1988 she told the 200th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, USA, "If I had power, I would open a jail and put every single doctor in jail for killing life."
But the point is, Governor Blanco is a Democrat. Today in Los Angeles, 38 years after aborting babies was legalized here in California, how come there are no, or virtually no, pro-life Democrat office-holders anywhere in the Los Angeles Archdiocese?
Have Cardinal Mahony, our auxiliary bishops and our clergy been working to foster the right to life among Democrats, and to encourage pro-life Dems to seek office? If they have been, they need to do better. If they have not been, when will they begin this good work?
