Cardinal stresses that Right to Life is issue number one!

Dear Friends,

Without the protection of the right to life, no other discussion of human rights can continue.

So declared Cardinal Renato Martino in an interview I conducted with him about politics and elections.

As we approach Election Day, some – even within the Church – will distort and hide the fact that the Church (and commonsense, by the way) make it crystal clear that the right to life is the most foundational good to preserve in any election.

Without life, we don’t have anything.

Can you imagine a candidate saying, “I support terrorism” and a voter replying, “I disagree with you on terrorism, but what’s your health care plan?’

No. The supporter of terrorism would be dismissed as unworthy of public office.

So should the supporter of abortion.

Now, it’s not just you saying that. By using this video at www.FrFranksBlog.com, it will be the Cardinal saying it!

So I ask you to do the following:

  1. Watch the following video.
  2. Post this message on your Facebook account.
  3. Tweet this message to your Twitter followers.
  4. Place this message on your blog and/or website.
  5. Bring this message to the attention of your pastor and invite him to quote the Cardinal as he preaches to the people in these days before the Election!

Thank you for all you are doing to advance the protection of life. Nothing is more important.

Fr. Frank Pavone
National Director

He is also the president of the National Pro-life Religious Council, and the national pastoral director of Rachel’s Vineyard, the world’s largest ministry of healing after abortion. He travels throughout the country preaching and teaching against abortion. He lived in Rome for two years while serving on the Pontifical Council for the Family, and recently was appointed to the Pontifical Academy for Life. In 2005, he was present at the bedside of Terri Schiavo as she was dying and was an outspoken advocate for her life. He was invited by members of the Class of 2009 at Notre Dame to lead an alternate commencement ceremony for those students who refused to attend the ceremony in which President Obama was honored. Father Pavone has received the “Proudly Pro-life Award” by the National Right to Life Committee, and numerous other pro-life awards and honorary doctorates. Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” of the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade abortion decision, has described him as “the catalyst that brought me into the Catholic Church.”
