Join Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone for a panel discussion moderated by Antonin Scalia Law School Professor Helen M. Alvaré on the topic of “Life in the Womb: The Preeminent Issue” with panelists: Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins, Live Action founder and investigative journalist Lila Rose, birth mother Kathy Folan, and her son, now an engineer, Nathan Sullivan who was placed in an open adoption. Nathan says: “You’ve heard it before: ‘I am pro-life EXCEPT in cases of rape.’ I want everyone to realize, especially the EXCEPTers, that you’re talking about me, and everyone like me. Life is life, no exceptions.”
From her perspective as a First Amendment, religious freedom, and marriage and family life expert, Alvaré will lead the discussion of Archbishop Cordileone’s May 1st pastoral letter “Before I Formed You in the Womb I Knew You: A Pastoral Letter on the Human Dignity of the Unborn, Holy Communion, and Catholics in Public Life.”

It is always good to see some really good people doing some really good things. May God bless them all. And, may many hear and heed their message.
We must do all we can to stop the slaughter of innocent babies and the violation of their mothers. And, may no Catholics ever participate in or promote these barbaric killings, which remain largely unseen.
It’s easy to condemn 19-century America for slavery or 20-century Germany for the Holocaust. This killing of millions of innocents is happening now, on our watch. And, what are we doing about it? How will history judge us? More importantly, God may well judge our nation accordingly, if we allow this to continue.
We cannot presume upon His mercy forever. He is the God of justice as well as mercy.
Not my fault. I’m not the one doing it. I better not have to suffer for what others are doing. I’ll be mad at God if that happens and wonder what the deal is.
The God who suffered and died for you?
