Hypocrisy of the Pro Life Movement
This is my response to the email I received from the “Knights of Columbus” about the elections.
So you are saying that in the past 35 years, all of the “Christian” lawyers have not been able to make the ADOPTION process easy? It’s unethical for a mother to receive money for her child but it’s OK for the lawyer to make thousands of dollars for his services? Seems like Christian lawyers would provide their services for free or the church could compensate them for their time. Why shouldn’t the mother be able to profit for providing life? Why isn’t the mother’s life valuable?
You guys really need to check yourselves. All you care about is the unborn and you don’t care if they die once they are out of the womb or about their quality of life. You don’t support sex education or birth control of any kind.
If you really cared about reducing the number of abortions or quality of life you would make the adoption process free for anyone willing to adopt or needing to put their child up for adoption. You would support programs that are designed to educate girls about sex and how not to get pregnant. Ignorance and abstinence does not work or we would not be having unwanted pregnancies.
Oh and why don’t you make a list of policy makers that support our “most favored nation” trade status with CHINA, a communist country that FORCES ABORTIONS? They force abortions and violate human rights every day but I don’t see you guys protesting them. You should smash everything you buy from China and boycott them until they improve their human rights violations.
If you think McCain cares about anything other than power and money you are misled. He is a puppet for all that has been is wrong with our current system. We need to remove ALL of the hypocrites in charge now, remove the ability to buy policy and CHANGE our corrupt system into a true representative democracy.

A message from the Knights of Columbus regarding the November 4 election:
Dear friend of the unborn:
It has been a difficult struggle, but the pro-life movement has accomplished many things since the Supreme Court’s decision to preempt all state and federal laws regulating abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973. While achieving the ultimate goal of overturning Roe remains somewhere in the future, we have been able to achieve many small successes along the way:
• the Hyde Amendment, which restricts federal funding for abortions;
• the federal law banning partial birth abortions, which was finally upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in April 2007;
• the “Mexico City Policy,” which has barred the use of federal taxpayers’ money to pay for abortions in other countries;
• laws in 44 states that preserve a parental role when children under 18 seek abortions;
• laws in 40 states that restrict late-term abortions;
• laws in 46 states that protect the right of conscience for individual health care providers;
• laws in 27 states that protect the right of conscience for institutions;
• laws in 38 states that ban partial birth abortions;
• laws in 33 states that require counseling before having an abortion;
• and laws in 16 states that provide for ultrasounds before an abortion.
All of these restrictions on abortion – all of the progress we’ve made over the past 35 years in trying to limit and reduce abortions in the United States – would be invalidated with the stroke of a pen if the next Congress passes, and the next president signs, the so-called “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA).
Before you cast your vote on Tuesday, please take the time and effort necessary to learn whether candidates for whom you might vote favor or oppose FOCA.
The Senate sponsors of FOCA are listed here:
The House sponsors of FOCA are listed here:
Obviously , if a candidate in your area is not listed among the sponsors, you may have to ask his or her campaign for their position on FOCA.
We have gathered much additional information about the Freedom of Choice Act, including links to material from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and on life issues generally on a special Knights of Columbus web page:
Remember, all that we’ve done together since Roe to save the lives of the unborn is at stake. Please pass on this message to your pro-life friends.
