Planned Parenthood, whose own figures show that its abortuaries around our Nation abort 250,000 American infants every year, saluted Villaraigosa because last year he loyally did its bidding by recording a message in Spanish that helped defeat pro-life Proposition 85.
Now that Cardinal Mahony has seen fit to rip Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez by name, it is high time for him to do the same to Villaraigosa and Mrs. Huerta.
But that chastisement by itself would do little good unless the Cardinal backed it up by action.
Cardinal Mahony should also take action -- by disinviting these and all the many pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia Catholic politicians and other public figures from any and every Catholic function, church, parish, school and other institution throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
The Cardinal should also tell them they cannot receive Communion until they publicly repent.
Please, your Eminence, do something. There is a crying need.
