Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Pro-abortion Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez speaking at a parish in the diocese of Orange.
Loretta Sanchez Back in the Churches
To Promote Obamacare
The following August 20 email came to California Catholic offices telling of the following appearance by pro-abortion Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez speaking at a parish in the diocese of Orange.
This was listed as a prayer vigil in the St. Callistus Parish Bulletin and as a training on the OCCCO (Orange County Congregation Community Organization) website.
This event occurred at St. Callistus Catholic Church, Garden Grove on Sunday, Aug 2, 2009.
The YouTube videos below show Rep. Loretta Sanchez trashing President Bush while promoting Obama and his universal healthcare and stimulus package. The auxiliary bishop for the Orange diocese, Bishop Dominic Luong, is sitting on at the table right next to Rep. Sanchez. This event occurred at the St. Callistus parish church hall.
The OCCCO is the new ACORN - plastering themselves all over the immigrant neighborhoods of Southern California, inviting Loretta Sanchez to speak, holding their community events in Catholic parishes (with the full knowledge and participation of the Catholic priests and bishops.
From the USCCB document - Catholics in Political Life: "The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions."
What's the concern?
OCCCO: Financially supported by the Diocese of Orange (your donations) and the USCCB (your Catholic Campaign for Human Development donations).
