Whether it's on the bishops' agenda or not
Pro-life Catholics plan own lobbying efforts in Sacramento because bishops' agenda fails to mention protection of the unborn
(Editor's note: The pro-life Catholic lobbyists need for you to show up and join them tomorrow in Sacramento. See contact information at the end of this story.)
Tomorrow, April 22, is Catholic Lobby Day in Sacramento, a day during which legislators can expect citizen lobbyists summoned to the state capital by the California Catholic Conference to press them on issues important to California's bishops. But abortion somehow didn't make it onto the Catholic Conference's list of legislative priorities -- which is where longtime pro-life Catholic activist Wynette Sills comes in.
Sills, who calls herself "just a simple layperson," says she is determined to lobby legislators to defend the sanctity of life for unborn children, whether it's on the bishops' agenda or not – and she says she wants other Catholics to join her.
