President Donald Trump has nominated 10th Circuit Appeals Court Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the Supreme Court seat previously held by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Judicial analysts agree that Gorsuch is a judge in the mold of Scalia--someone who interprets the U.S. Constitution the way that it was originally written, and will not try to make new radical laws from the bench.
As Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, stated, "All too often our efforts to protect unborn children and other vulnerable humans have been overridden by judges who believe they have a right to impose their own policy preferences. We are heartened that Judge Gorsuch appears to share Justice Scalia's view that federal judges are constrained to enforce the text and original intent of constitutional provisions, and on all other matters should defer to democratically elected lawmakers."
The minute Judge Gorsuch's nomination was announced, pro-abortion forces began an intense campaign to defeat his appointment. That is why we must work now to show our support for this outstanding nominee.
ACTION: Please call and email U.S. Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey and let them know you want them to support Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.

"Quick Explanation re Catholic Teaching & Contra-ception"
Oh and by the way, THE PILL KILLS!
Warning - the next video can be crude. It certainly does not proclaim the fullness of truth about human sexuality; it does not proclaim why sexual acts are absolutely reserved for husbands and wives in mutually exclusive, permanent, and indissolubile marriage; it does not proclaim why those acts must always be open to life. It also does not explain how certain "contraceptives" can work in an abortifacient manner. In parody form, however, it reveals information about "contraceptives," which largely goes unknown....

“Lord knows, kids...need a hero — courageous, self-sacrificing people....I believe there’s a hero in all of us…that keeps us honest…gives us strength…makes us noble…and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady and give up the thing we want the most – even our dreams.”

"people who suppose that prostitution, adultery, fornication, & the like are morally innocent are profoundly mistaken....Laws against intrinsic evils such as prostitution, pornography, drug abuse, & the like, as well as those regulating gambling & alcohol, are justified, in part, by a concern to protect the public environment" (A Clash of Orthodoxies, pp. 101 - 108)
