Catholics are PRO-Life - Vote PRO-Life

There can be singularly no other issue in America (or anywhere) to cast your vote on than the respect for human life.

In the words of Fr. John Corapi:

Among the most important titles we have in the Catholic Church for the Blessed Virgin Mary are Our Lady of Victory and Our Lady of the Rosary. These titles can be traced back to one of the most decisive times in the history of the world and Christendom. The Battle of Lepanto took place on October 7 (date of feast of Our Lady of Rosary), 1571. This proved to be the most crucial battle for the Christian forces against the radical Muslim navy of Turkey. Pope Pius V led a procession around St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City praying the Rosary. He showed true pastoral leadership in recognizing the danger posed to Christendom by the radical Muslim forces, and in using the means necessary to defeat it. Spiritual battles require spiritual weapons, and this more than anything was a battle that had its origins in the spiritual order—a true battle between good and evil.
Today we have a similar spiritual battle in progress—a battle between the forces of good and evil, light and darkness, truth and lies, life and death. If we do not soon stop the genocide of abortion in the United States, we shall run the course of all those that prove by their actions that they are enemies of God—total collapse, economic, social, and national. The moral demise of a nation results in the ultimate demise of a nation. God is not a disinterested spectator to the affairs of man. Life begins at conception.
This is an unalterable formal teaching of the Catholic Church. If you do not accept this you are a heretic in plain English. A single abortion is homicide. The more than 48,000,000 abortions since Roe v. Wade in the United States constitute genocide by definition. The group singled out for death—unwanted, unborn children.
No other issue, not all other issues taken together, can constitute a proportionate reason for voting for candidates that intend to preserve and defend this holocaust of innocent human life that is abortion.
I strongly urge every one of you to make a Novena and pray the Rosary to Our Lady of Victory between October 27th and Election Day, November 4th. Pray that God’s will be done and the most innocent and utterly vulnerable of our brothers and sisters will be protected from this barbaric and grossly sinful blight on society that is abortion. No woman, and no man, has the right to choose to murder an innocent human being.
May God grant us the wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and counsel to form our conscience in accordance with authentic Catholic teaching, and then vote that well‐formed Catholic conscience.

Be sure to read Mary Ellen's Stop Drinking the Kool-Aid!

Just a snippet:

I have been reading and listening and watching those who claim to be practicing, devout Catholics make their case for voting for Obama. I have to say that one and, all they are without a doubt, full of crap.
They need to put down the Kool-Aid and high tail it to confession because they are leading people into sin and it's going to come back to bite them in the butt at some point.
I have been reading some of the most twisted, delusional, illogical thinking that these "scholars" use to justify their support of a candidate whose platform contains the most abhorrent anti-life policies that can possibly be dreamed up by the most die-hard abortion advocates. I would have a great deal more respect for
Kmiec and Kaveny if they just admitted that they knew it was wrong to endorse a pro-abortion candidate but were doing it anyway. In the case of pro-abortion politicians, such as Biden, Pelosi, Kennedy and others why not just come out and say, "I know it's wrong but it's how I'm going to get elected so I'm going to make this my platform anyway." We then could at least call them honest. Honest in a morally corrupt and power hungry way but at least they would be acknowledging what we know they know.
