Abortions on a Sunday? Even on the Lord’s Day, there are abortionists open for business. As hard as that may seem to believe, it’s true.

Your prayers are needed so women don’t make a mistake that will cost their babies their lives — and will perhaps affect them in ways they can’t even imagine for years to come.

But even for those who have made that mistake, there is eternal hope. Here are a couple of stories of hurt … and healing.

Today, is the final day of 40 Days for Life spring campaign.  We hope to see you today (Sunday, March 28th) at 2 PM for a Jericho March in front of AMS of Pensacola, 6115 Village Oaks Drive.  Yesterday, Saturday, March 27th, children did not lose their lives in Pensacola.  If abortions are going to take place in Pensacola, this week, they will most likely occur TODAY, Sunday, Palm Sunday.  We hope you will join us some time today prior to the Jericho March.  Your prayerful presence in front of the AMS of Pensacola is very important.  In the past 40 Days here in Pensacola, we have witnessed at least nineteen (19) women choose life!  AMEN!  Thank you to all those who have participated this spring.  We look forward to seeing many of you today!  Jesus We Trust In You!

Respect Life Sunday, this year celebrated on October 4th is a day set aside for Catholics in the United States to reflect with gratitude on God’s priceless gift of human life. It is also an occasion to examine how well we, as a nation and individually, are living up to our obligation to protect the rights of those who, due to age, dependency, poverty or other circumstances, are at risk of their very lives.

In the current debate over health care reform, it has become evident that a number of Americans believe that the lives and health of only some people are worth safeguarding, while other classes of people are viewed as not deserving the same protection. Such an attitude is deplorable, all the more so in the context of health care. Sanctioning discrimination in the quality of care given to different groups of people has no place in medicine, and directly contravenes the ethical norms under which Catholic hospitals and health care providers operate.
