Dear Fellow Parishioners,
This Sunday (January 22, 2017) marks the 44th anniversary of the legalization of abortion here in the United States of America. As a recent mailing from Betty McGuire the CEO of City Life Center proclaimed:
44 years = 60,000,000
Yes, “forty-four years ago the U.S. Supreme Court decided two cases that have ended the lives of more than 60 million babies…the Supreme Court decisions on January 22, 1973, made abortion legal up to the day of birth in all 50 states.
It’s heartbreaking to even print the number 60 million! God has called each one of these babies by name. He knew them before they were born. One of my granddaughters once asked: ‘How will God’s house grow if people keep on aborting their children?’ I ask us all: ‘What about God’s house?’
The elections are over and we have new pro-life leadership in Washington, D.C., and in many states. Because of God’s great mercy and His love for life, God’s house still has an opportunity to stand for righteousness—because righteousness exalts a nation.”
How will we stand up for life? We give thanks for the many pro-life organizations that speak for us, especially the City Life Center.
