Your Vote is a matter of Life or Death!
98 and 97 Days until Election Day!
For our statement in our premier edition of this special Pro-Life DEFEND LIFE section and why, as responsible Catholics and citizens, we have an obligation to uphold the Sanctity of Life by voting for candidates and issues that promote that, see WE MUST DEFEND LIFE!
On Why Catholics Must Vote for Pro-Life Candidates!
"We encourage all citizens, particularly Catholics, to embrace their citizenship not merely as a duty and privilege, but as an opportunity meaningfully to participate in building the culture of life. Every voice matters in the public forum. Every vote counts. Every act of responsible citizenship is an exercise of significant individual power. We must exercise that power in ways that defend human life, especially those of God's children who are unborn, disabled or otherwise vulnerable"
(US Bishops, Living the Gospel of Life, 1998, n. 34).

Series of Pro-Life ads adopt "What if" theme on concept of the thought-provoking "It's a Wonderful Life!" Jimmy Stewart would love it!
A series of Pro-Life ads by the Pro-Life Center Reclaiming America began over the weekend aimed at pro-abort voters and the GOP Convention. What makes these unique is the theme they have chosen, taking off on the popular and thought-provoking concept of the charming and life-promoting classic "It's a Wonderful Life!". In these ads the "what if" concept is offered. The spots show what might have happened to one woman if she had not chosen to have an abortion. Hopefully these ads will hit home and get many of the scrooge pro-aborts off the snide and probe their consciences so they will realize the horror of abortion and embrace the culture of life. continued inside.
Republicans set to reinforce strong Pro-Life Platform which will make them the Party of choice for concerned Catholics and Christians
While a few pro-abortion Republicans are mounting a last ditch effort to soften the wording in the Republican platform, most pundits are relatively sure they're efforts will be futile as the Republican Party meets this week in Philadelphia. Many more expect the Grand Old Party to come away with a stronger than ever pro-life stance which will truly decipher the black and white issues between Al Gore and George W. Bush. The latter has pledged to nominate pro-life judges to the Supreme Court whereas the former has vowed to stay the Clinton culture of death march. continued inside.
GOP Convention could be in for a Snowe job as Maine's leading pro-abort senator attempts to fight on the floor for abortion
Despite being in the vast minority of the Grand Old Party, the few pro-aborts, upset they could make no headway in the pre-platform talks prior to the convention, are counting on their pro-abort standard bearer Olympia Snowe, a Republican Senator from Maine to try to make waves on the convention floor this week in Philadelphia as they make a last-ditch effort to sway the Party to soften their stance and wording against abortion. We pray: Not a chance! continued inside.
Pre-convention Poll show Independent Voters leaning toward Pro-Life stance
An independent Poll conducted by Zogby International showed that Independent voters - i.e., neither Republican or Democrat - would lean more toward Pro-Life candidates and issues meaning they would favor George W. Bush who represents the culture of life over the culture of death candidate Democratic Vice President Al Gore. The most significant margin was over the question of notifying parents of teen-age girls. Nearly 68% signified they believe parents must be notified beforehand by the physician, a stance that Gore strongly opposes. continued inside.
