Why the Slaughter of the Innocent Continues

Catholic The reason why child-killing is still legal in this country is because Catholics have not stood up and demanded, "ENOUGH!" The following article proves this. If we are to end this holocaust, we must demand from our Congressmen to not receive money from PP or other abortion-minded business, and to only vote in support of bills that will protect the lives of the unborn. Or...we threaten that we will do everything in our power to make sure that they don't get re-elected.

Or...this will continue, and we will have to answer to God Almighty for our inactivity.

Only 6 of the 24 Catholic Senators voted “yea” yesterday to restore the Mexico City Policy. Last week President Obama rescinded the policy of President Bush, and first instituted by Reagan, not to provide federal funds to organizations doing abortions overseas.

Six of the eight Catholic Republican senators voted "YEA," to restore the policy: Martinez (FL); Brownback (KS); Bunning (KY); Vitter (LA); and two newly elected senators: Johanns (NE) and Risch (ID).

Two Republican Catholic senators who frequently vote anti-life with Democrats on life issues voted against restoring the policy, thus allowing federal funds to be given to groups providing abortions overseas: Murkowski (AK) and Collins (ME).
These two Republians joined 16 Catholic Democrats voting "NAY," including the “pro-life” Sen. Bob Casey, Jr. (PA). Not voting was Sen. Kennedy (MA).

Does it get any more pathetic than this?

My friend Lisa Correnti over at made this comment:

"The erosion of our Catholic culture is evident in the voting results of these Catholic senators. We have two choices: to bring them to the truth and beauty of the Church’s teachings through prayer, and spiritual direction with their local ordinary, or to vote them out of office.

"Now more than ever, faithful Catholics must encourage their elected officials to defend life and ask their bishops to bring these wayward Catholic politicians into communion with the Church."

Please go to Correnti’s web site and sign the petition to Cardinal George, president of the USCCB, asking him to tell Catholic politicians to stop receiving campaign donations from pro-abortion organizations like NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Emily’s List, and NOW.

$9,000,000 has been received by sitting Catholic members of the present Congress!

Here is a list of the other Catholic Democrats who voted not to restore the Mexico City Policy: Gillibrand (NY); Reed (RI); Leahy (VT); Cantwell (WA); Menendez (NJ); Murray (WV); Begich (AL); Dodd (CT); Landrieu (LA); Harkin (IA); Kerry (MA); McCaskill (MO); Mikulski (MD); Durbin (IL) and Kaufman (DE).

Here is a list of the total contributions made to the senators who voted against the bill to restore the Mexico City Policy.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), who assumed office only in January 2007, has accepted $986,619 from the pro-abortion lobby.

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) has received $205,768

“Pro-life" Sen. Bob Casey Jr. (D-PA), $327,914.

Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), $1,043,301

Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI), $17,400

Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA), $303,014

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), $44,585

Sen. Christopher Dodd (CT), $31,235

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), $326,996

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA), $191,057

Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), $367,491

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), $77,216

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), $24,435

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), $244,360

Question: How many of the ordinaries ("ordinary" is another word for "bishop") of these Catholic politicians will make a public statement rebuking the Catholic senator from their diocese for voting against restoring the Mexico City Policy?

Neither of my senators are Catholic, but I'd like to look up their votes on this in THOMAS. But first I have to know the name or number of the bill. Could you help me out with that?

My recommendation would be to call Rep. Chris Smith's office. He has been involved in trying to get this policy restored.
