RESPECT LIFE QUOTE

“Cardinal O’Connor preached most powerfully by his example the necessity of seeing in every human being, from the first moment of conception to the last moment of natural death and every moment in between … the image of a God to be loved and served. What a great legacy he has left us in his constant reminder that the Church must be always unambiguously Pro-Life.”

–Cardinal Bernard Law, in his homily delivered at the funeral of New York’s Cardinal John O’Connor

Adoption

Catholic Charities 1-800-CARE-002

God has a plan for your baby…maybe His plan is for a childless couple to raise the baby.  You can meet and choose the adoptive parents.  God knows and loves your unborn baby.  Abortion ends in pain and death.  (Your baby’s heart is beating on day 21).  You may thing that abortion is fast and easy and pregnancy and child birth is so hard, but abortion is even more painful and leaves wounds that do not go away.  We can help you through your pregnancy.

Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M.’s Statement on the USCCB Response to the HHS Insurance Mandate

The members of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Administrative Committee engaged in an extended discussion of the issue of religious freedom during our two-day meeting in Washington. Contrary to some media reports, the bishops are united in their vigorous opposition to the intrusive and coercive mandate and dubious “accommodation” proposed by the administration. Again, contrary to media reports, the bishops’ efforts are not focused on contraception but, rather, on the recent, dangerous and precedent-setting intrusion of the administration into and upon the religious freedom of people of all faiths in our nation. The implications of the administration’s actions are long-term and harmful to the deeply held convictions of the American people from the beginning of our history.  We bishops see these actions as an affront to the common good. The full statement can be found here.
