A Critical Abortion Battle Is Being Fought In New Mexico Right Now

You may not have heard about it. I hadn’t until last night. But today in Albuquerque, New Mexico, city residents are voting on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance — a measure that would, according to National Right to Life News, “protect pain-capable unborn children from death by abortion.” This would mean a late-term (20 weeks gestation and later) abortion...

Today, Let’s Show Some Love to Washington State (They So Need It!)

Why does Washington state need some love from us? Yesterday lame-duck Governor Christine Gregoire signed same-sex marriage into law. She said while pushing the bill that her Catholic faith inspired her to redefine marriage. Shame on her. Luckily, all is not lost — opponents of same-sex marriage have already filed a referendum to overturn the law at the ballot box this November. As a first st... More

Victory! Anti-Catholic “Diversity” Training Revised After CatholicVote Takes Action!

Two weeks ago I asked the AmP/CV community to join me in taking action to express outrage over a mandatory university training that negatively stereotyped Catholics. Today, I’m happy to report that, as a fruit of our efforts, the training was pulled and revised: Last week I wrote about an offensive Catholic stereotype used in our university system mandatory EEO training. The post, with a scr... More

Why Defunding the UNFPA Will Do More Good Than We Can Know

I was excited when HR 2059, a bill designed to eliminate taxpayer funding of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) won the GOP-sponsored “YouCut” contest back in May (showing again that the grassroots are strongly pro-life). The UNFPA sends money from American taxpayers to the United Nations population control agency that supports China’s brutal one child policy, for instance, ... More

Bishop Jenky’s Rallying Call: State of Illinois “At War” with Catholic Community Over Same-Sex Adoptions

The recent news that the state of Illinois will terminate its contracts to do adoption and foster care through Catholic Charities should not be taken lying down. This happened as a direct result of the bad same-sex civil unions bill that went into law this June. A law that catholics (and other people) warned would result in, among other things, exactly this — Catholic Charities being forced ... More

New Poll: Americans Oppose Requiring Contraception Coverage 46%-39%, And What We Can Do

Rasmussen Reports polled Americans this week and finds they are not in favor of the Obama administration’s decision to require private health insurance companies to cover contraception: “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 39% believe health insurance companies should be required to cover all government approved contraceptives for wome...

Tell Stephen Colbert’s SuperPAC You Stand For Life!

I think Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report is hilarious. Recently he launched his very own PAC (political action committee) called “SuperPAC” which is dedicated to “making a better tomorrow … tomorrow.” Sure, it’s all for fun, but because so many people love Colbert the PAC has actually raised lots of money, and now he’s asking his fans to help him deci...

Why Catholics Have The Fight to Protect Marriage Backwards (+5 Ways To Move Forward)

I’m heartened by the outpouring of commentary in the wake of New York’s move to legalize gay “marriage.” Truly, I am. It means that Catholics care about marriage and are distressed when they see it under attack (as they should). But the sudden uptick in volume of Catholic voices talking about the threat to marriage represented by its redefinition in New York confuses me, fo... More

Pro-Life Progress in WI, IN, NC, KS, TX, UT & SC — Bring It To Your State Next!

My inbox has been filling-up this week with good news for the pro-life movement. Wisconsin has become the 4th state to cut Planned Parenthood Funding (following Indiana, North Carolina, and Kansas). (Which leads to the question: “where is my state with defunding Planned Parenthood?” — I’d recommend checking into it!) Plus, the Texas Alliance for Life reports that the Texas ... More


Time to Hit the Phones for Marriage and Religious Liberty in New York!

Efforts to redefine marriage have met with a string of defeats this year. They lost their bid to redefine marriage in the Maryland legislature first, then the Rhode Island legislature. In Minnesota, the legislature voted in May to allow the people of that state to define marriage as between one man and one woman in 2012, and the last remaining states may soon follow suit. The last chance gay activ... More
