Pro-life campaign must succeed, says Catholic League

.- The Catholic League is encouraging Catholics across the country to support the United States bishops’ pro-life campaign, called the Second Look Project, especially after pro-abortion activists have been destroying the ads put up in the Diocese of Oakland.

“It is important that this campaign succeed,” said Catholic League president Bill Donohue. “It is a great way to subvert the culture of death.”

The Respect Life Ministry of the Oakland Diocese has been promoting the pro-life message on Bay Area Rapid Transit trains. One of the ads, “9 MONTHS,” calls attention to the amount of time the Supreme Court allows abortions to take place.

Another ad reads: “The Supreme Court says you can choose: after the heart starts beating, after its arms and legs appear, after all organs are present, after the sex is apparent, after it sucks its thumb, after it responds to sounds, after it could survive outside the womb.” The ads end by asking: “Have We Gone Too Far?”

Pro-abortion activists have destroyed most of the ads, but diocese officials have been busy replacing them. According to Donohue, many of the placards have been covered with the “incredibly vicious anti-Catholic and obscene remarks.” Some of the ads have been torn to shreds.

“Most Americans, including those who support abortion rights, have serious reservations about abortion-on-demand. But not these people,” Donohue said in a press release, referring to the vandals. “Abortion is regarded as sacrosanct because it affirms their vision of genital liberation—every sexual act that can be performed must be performed, and none should be burdened by pregnancy or disease.”

He suggested that citizens who want to “know what makes these people tick” should go to the indybay.org Web site.
