Choose Life

My old Previa van has a new tag!
"Choose Life" Missouri is a fundraiser for crisis pregnancy centers, and I'm happy to be among its first 200 supporters with my "Candise and Crew" moniker. This is ideally what pro-lifers are about: witnessing to the beauty of life at all stages and raising money to support women in unplanned pregnancies. We are not about vigilante violence, and we never have been. The Notre Dame scandal is a recent case-in-point. Mary Ann Glendon declined to receive an award if they were also giving an honorary law degree to the most pro-abortion president in history. Peaceful protestors were arrested on Notre Dame campus. Now, the Obama Administration sends extra security to Planned Parenthood clinics because of his fears (?) following the murder of Wichita abortionist George Tiller at his church on Sunday. We expected that. I feel sorry for the Tiller family actually--because they now come face-to-face with what death feels like. For years, Tiller participated unapologetically in the deaths of thousands of babies. Some full term. Winger stated the obvious when we first heard the news: "He was an abortion doctor and he was at church?!"

The Thomas More Society has filed a petition for writ of certiorari in the United States Supreme Court in "Choose Life" Illinois v. Jesse White. Enlisting the aid of Special Counsel Alan Untereiner, Thomas More Society has "put the band back together" for another U.S. Supreme Court appeal, this time to defend Americans' rights to express their pro-adoption "Choose Life" views in public square.

"We are committed to fight this battle to the finish," said TMS President & Chief Counsel Tom Brejcha, "It makes no sense that suppression of the 'Choose Life' specialty plate in Arizona was condemned by the Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals as 'viewpoint discrimination' in violation of the First Amendment rights of Arizona's citizens, whereas that same suppression in Illinois was held a valid exercise of state power."

We cannot rest until the law also recognizes the killing of the unborn as murder.
