CALL 1-888-510-BABY or click on the picture on the left, if you gave birth or are about to and can't care for your baby, to give your baby to a worker at a nearby hospital (some states also include police stations or fire stations), NO QUESTIONS ASKED. YOU WON'T GET IN ANY TROUBLE or even have to tell your name; Safehaven people will help the baby be adopted and cared for.
“'You are also putting someone in the office of the Secretary of State, the Surgeon General, the Attorney General, the Secretary of [Health and Human Services], and in fact thousands of positions in the federal administration — not to mention that you’re also putting a certain type of person on the Supreme Court, and on all the other federal courts that decide so many issues of public policy,'” [Fr. Frank Pavone] said. 'Who are the people the president brings with him into office?'”
“'This is a big moment for Catholic voters to step back from their party affiliation,' said Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore in an interview with National Review’s Kathryn Jean Lopez at the Knights of Columbus’ 130th Convention [in 2012]."
"For Catholics taking to the polls in November, the prelate said, 'The question to ask is this: Are any of the candidates of either party, or independents, standing for something that is intrinsically evil, evil no matter what the circumstances?'
"'If that’s the case, a Catholic, regardless of his party affiliation, shouldn’t be voting for such a person,' he added.
It is still "a big moment" and still, good advice for all voters. The above article is dated, but the beliefs of a practicing Catholic--or even just a plain, secular, moral person--don't change in four years--or four hundred, or four-thousand years.
"Lopez notes that while the bishops’ role is not to explicitly state who Catholics ought not vote for, Obama would clearly qualify.
“'Their role is not to explicitly say something like "you can’t vote for Candidate X"; it is to offer moral guidance,' she explains. 'Archbishop Lori points out that if a candidate is supporting an intrinsic evil, and it’s safe to say selling abortion as health care would qualify, I think it is safe to assume that if Candidate X is Barack Obama, a Catholic voter has a problem voting for him,' she writes. 'And that is not making light of any other important issue that intimately affects lives and livelihoods.'”
Replace "Barack Obama" with "Hillary Clinton." The result is the same. Because the moral issue and the moral guidance is the same.

"After Abortion,...run by Emily Peterson and Annie Banno, two women who had abortions in the 1970s, ...tries to avoid the political tug-of-war that tends to come with this turf. They concentrate instead on discussing the troubling personal effects of abortion on the mothers." ~ Eric Scheske, Godspy contributing editor, in NC Register's "Signs of Life in the Blogosphere", 2/2006
"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."
