Jury finds pro-life Fr. Norman Weslin not guilty
A jury in federal court in Omaha has found Father Norman Weslin, founder of the Lambs of Christ, not guilty of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.
Father Weslin's alleged "federal crime" was that last April he prayed the Rosary in a security anteroom of the abortion business of the notorious LeRoy Carhart and, while speaking through a mail slot to the waiting room, urged abortion customers inside to let their babies live.
Had he been convicted, Father Weslin could have gotten 18 months in federal prison, three years of probation and a fine of $25,000.
Excellent idea for Cardinal Mahony: Invite Father Norman Weslin to be the keynote speaker at your 2008 Religious Education Congress, so he can inspire our clergy to pro-life activism.
