Vote Pro-Life

Thursday, October 16, 2008 \PM\.\Thu\.

We have a crucial election coming up.

Two to four Supreme Court justices will be replaced the next 4-8 years.

It is the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) that made abortion (www.SilentScream.org) legal in 1973, and if the opportunity presents itself, the SCOUTS can have a chance to overturn Roe v. Wade and make killing children in the womb illegal again- as it should be…

The quixotically named Catholic blogger Morning’s Minion has a post this morning in which he (yet again) tries to make the case that the pro-life issue is basically a wash between Senators Obama and McCain. Now, I know that many of our readers already agree that MM’s conclusion is wrong, and deeply wrong, but I want to focus on why this particular argument is wrong, because I think it’s an important question for Catholics living in our republic. So I’d like to ask that people avoid basic “I don’t see how any good Catholic could vote for Obama” comments in favor of discussing whether federalism can be a pro-life position, or is simply a passing of the buck.

Joe the Plumber?

Thursday, October 16, 2008 \AM\.\Thu\.

For those of you who were wondering during the debate last night, who the heck is Joe the Plumber?, here is a video of his encounter with Senator Obama.

Here is Joe’s reaction to the encounter:

I have run a small business, my law firm, since 1985.  It provides the entire livelihood for my family.  The first decade of the business we scraped by.  Now it provides a pretty good living, and, God willing, will allow me to pay for college for my kids.
