  1. Here's the deal with this. Conservative politicians, who have a very shaky coalition in the US made up of religious fanatics, gun nuts, war mongers and laissez faire capitalist interests, have to show support to all their constituency groups, even though most of them have no sympathy for the causes they support. This is especially true for the religious fanaticsm who unlike the gun nits, war mongers and greedy capitalists have not won a single battle in the culture wars. They know that this law will be struck down as blatantly unconstitutional, no harm, no foul.

    The main thing these efforts at striking down Roe achieve is making the majority of the populace sick of the continuing culture wars and unsympathetic to those that fight them. Gross changes in the demographic of the US and Canada in the form of a younger population that is both less attendant upon institutional religious indoctrination and more tolerant of lifestyle diversity and individual rights within the community will make make many of the current battles in the culture wars meaningless in relatively few years. The new battles are going to be fought in territory even more terrifying and alien to the institutional church.

  2. I agree the younger generation is less attendant upon religious indoctrination. Its been supplanted by a secular indoctrination of moral relativism and narcissism. What a bright future indeed.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
