A Florida woman gave birth to a live baby during an abortion who was then killed. This scenario is tragic. Let us pray for all those involved in this evil.
I find it interesting that the President Obama once claimed that decisions about abortion and the beginning of human life were “above his pay grade” and yet now he’s making executive orders in regard to them. 58% of Americans disagree with the President’s decision to reverse the “Mexico City Policy”. Obama’s decision is both “above [his] paygrade” and contrary to the convictions of people he represents.
Full story from The Weekly Standard:
Barack Obama signed an executive order late in the afternoon on Friday, January 23 to allow taxpayer funds to go to groups overseas that perform or promote abortions. To minimize press coverage, he signed the order in the absence of reporters and photographers, and the White House waited until 7:00 p.m. to issue a press release, in which the president said: “I have no desire to continue this stale and fruitless debate” on abortion.
The incredible ad created by CatholicVote will not be featured as an advertisement even after a fund raising blitz to pay for a coveted slot on Sunday morning when the Cardinals face the Steelers. NBC decided that they don’t want to run advocacy ads.
What the ad below. It’s amazing:

O God, we acknowledge You today as Lord, Not only of individuals, but of nations and governments.
We thank You for the privilege Of being able to organize ourselves politically And of knowing that political loyalty Does not have to mean disloyalty to You.
We thank You for Your law, Which our Founding Fathers acknowledged And recognized as higher than any human law.
We thank You for the opportunity that this election year puts before us, To exercise our solemn duty not only to vote, But to influence countless others to vote, And to vote correctly.
Lord, we pray that Your people may be awakened. Let them realize that while politics is not their salvation, Their response to You requires that they be politically active.
Awaken Your people to know that they are not called to be a sect fleeing the world But rather a community of faith renewing the world.
Awaken them that the same hands lifted up to You in prayer Are the hands that pull the lever in the voting booth; That the same eyes that read Your Word Are the eyes that read the names on the ballot, And that they do not cease to be Christians When they enter the voting booth.
Awaken Your people to a commitment to justice, To the sanctity of marriage and the family, To the dignity of each individual human life, And to the truth that human rights begin when Human Lives Begin, And not one moment later.
Lord, we rejoice today That we are citizens of Your kingdom.
May that make us all the more committed To being faithful citizens on earth.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
(This prayer was written by the Reverend Frank Pavone.)
