PROLIFE PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jan 22, 2004

Well, it didn't make it into the State of the Union Address, but at least the eight thousand gathered at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception last night for the Prolife Mass heard a strong prolife message from the President and the First Lady.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Compared to the previous president and his open endorsment of the culture of death, I think President Bush did a fine job the other night. And I think it would be a little much to expect him to use the State of the Union address to give a Pro-Life lecture to his captive audience. It is well-known that he is doing what he can. If he came on too strong, he'd risk losing what support he has for such measures as the end of partial birth abortion. Prudence is a virtue ya know.
