Not only did they resist the Socialist Agenda of the “Economic Recovery” package signed by President Obama, but they have now written to Cardinal Rigali pledging their defiant support to defeat the legisltative abomination called FOCA — the so-called “Freedom of Choice Act” that would make abortions legal — with no recourse for the States, Catholic hospitals, etc. Voice your support to these courageous Congressional advocates for Life.

Republican leaders in the US House of Representatives have promised to fight against passage of the Freedom of Choice Act. In an open letter to Cardinal Justin Rigali, the chairman of the US bishops’ pro-life committee, Reps. John Boehner and Thaddeus McCotter — the House Republican leader and chairman of the Republican Conference, respectively — vow that the minority “will not be caught off-guard” by attempts to enact legislation affirming the Roe v. Wade decision. Boehner and McCotter thanked Cardinal Rigali for his clear stance in defense of life, articulating in a February 5 letter to all members of the US Congress. “We stand with you n the defense of all human life,” the Republican leaders said.

12-year-old steals day with pro-life speech
Teachers threaten disqualification, but girl chooses to speak against abortion

By Chelsea Schilling © 2009 WorldNetDaily

“Despite facing threats of disqualification, a 12-year-old girl took first place in a speech contest when she eloquently argued for the rights of unborn children – after an offended judge quit.

“What if I told you that right now, someone was choosing if you were going to live or die?” the seventh-grader begins in a video recording of her speech on YouTube. … And what if I told you, you could do nothing about it?”

The girl, a student at a Toronto school identified only as “Lia,” continued: “Fellow students and teachers, thousands of children are right now in that very situation. Someone is choosing without even knowing them whether they are going to live or die.

“That someone is their mother. And that choice is abortion.”

But what made the 12-year-old choose to speak about abortion?

Full news story on this controversial speech.
