Pray, and thank God, for these Catholic "Friends of Life" in Congress who voted to restore the Mexico City policy to protect unborn human beings:
Mel Martinez of Florida
Sam Brownback of Kansas
Jim Bunning of Kentucky
David Vitter of Louisiana
Mike Johanns of Nebraska
Jim Risch of Idaho
Hostile to Life
Two Catholic senators who frequently vote anti-life with Democrats voted against restoring the policy, thus allowing federal funds to be given to groups providing abortions overseas:
Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
Susan Collins of Maine
These two Republicans joined 16 anti-life Catholic Democrats voting "NAY,":
Casey, Jr. (PA)
Not voting was Sen. Kennedy (MA).
Read more about this pathetic and scandalous situation at One Nation Under God where Lisa Correnti explains how to sign a petition to Cardinal George, president of the USCCB, asking him to tell Catholic politicians to stop receiving campaign donations from pro-abortion organizations like NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Emily’s List, and NOW.
