Unprecedented number of pro-life bills in state legislatures.

05/25/2011 Comments (4)

TOPEKA, Kansas — An unprecedented number of pro-life bills, mostly on the state level, is continuing, and recent executive signatures in places like Kansas and Indiana are giving pro-lifers renewed hope.

Measures that strip Planned Parenthood of all state funding, force private abortionists to adopt new safety measures, require parental consent and outlaw almost all abortions after 20 weeks were pushed through state legislatures by new pro-life majorities.

“It is my impression a significant number of newly elected legislators are pro-life,” said Mary Spaulding Balch, who has visited many state legislatures in her job as director of National Right to Life’s department of state legislation....READ MORE

St. Mary's Catholic Church in Joplin, after Sunday's tornado.

– Arnica Zitting

JOPLIN, Mo. — Sunday’s devastating tornado was on the ground in Joplin for just 20 minutes, but it was enough time to tear the city in two.

At least 117 people perished in the storm and an estimated 400 had been injured. They expected those numbers to rise. Approximately 2,000 buildings were damaged.

The Catholic Church was especially hard hit, with the loss of the town’s largest Catholic parish and rectory, an elementary school and a hospital.

“It’s devastating,” said Gene Koester, principal of the local Catholic high school. “It looks like a bomb hit Joplin.”

“The neighborhood around St. Mary’s was scoured clean,” said Bishop James Johnston of Springfield-Cape Girardeau. Bishop...READ MORE

Jeff Grabosky is no ordinary Catholic athlete. On May 21, he reached the Atlantic Ocean at Smith Point, Long Island, N.Y., to complete a run he started in Oceanside, Calif., on Jan. 20. In 121 days, his coast-to-coast run tallied an incredible 3,701.8 miles — and he prayed from start to finish.

Why did he even consider such a challenge? From an athletic standpoint, it was a big step up from the marathons he had done and other runs to raise money for various charities.

“But I wanted to basically make a difference in the world,” Grabosky explained, “and what better way than by praying for people? I wanted to help everyone. Running is a talent of mine; using that talent to spread the good...READ MORE

ALBANY, N.Y. — The battle over same-sex “marriage” has reached a critical point in New York, where the Democratic governor and well-financed homosexual-rights activists are aggressively lobbying lawmakers to legalize homosexual “marriage.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been campaigning across the state, urging voters to lean on their representatives to vote in favor of legislation that would make New York the sixth and largest state in the country to legalize same-sex “marriage,” which opponents say would have a dramatic impact on the issue nationwide.

“This is not just about a fight in New York. If we lose the battle here, we will ultimately lose the fight across the country,” predicts Michael...READ MORE
