Let’s Name the Abortion Providing Politicians

I’m absolutely shocked this morning to learn that the bill to outlaw abortions past twenty weeks has been defeated in the US Senate.

Even more shocking is the fact that fourteen senators who identify as Catholics voted against the bill–in effect giving the nod to late term abortions.  Even worse is the realization that if these men and women had voted for the bill it would have passed. Therefore, these fourteen have ensured that this barbaric procedure is still legal in America.

In case anyone is under any misapprehension what a late term abortion looks like let’s review the information:

So fourteen Catholic senators voted for this barbaric, inhumane practice to still be legal in the United States and thereby assured its continuation.

Today is the day for the fourteen men and women to be named. They need to be named, and those who are active in Catholic media must publish their names. This needs to be a nationwide, total Catholic publicity effort. It doesn’t matter if you are a “liberal” or a “conservative”.

If you have any voice, publish their names and publish the horror that they have enabled by their vote.

Their names are:

  • Maria Cantwell – Washington
  • Susan Collins -Maine
  • Dick Durbin – Illinois
  • Kirsten Gillibrand – New York
  • Heidi Heitkamp – North Dakota
  • Tim Kaine – Virginia
  • Patrick Leahy – Vermont
  • Ed Markey – Massachussetts
  • Catherine Cortez Masto – Nevada
  • Claire McCaskill – Missouri
  • Bob Menendez – New Jersey
  • Lisa Murkowski – Alaska
  • Patty Murray – Washington
  • Jack Reed – Rhode Island

That these fourteen identify publicly as Catholic go here.  To see how they voted go here.

Every Catholic college, university, institute of learning, newspaper and website should publish the names of the Catholic senators who voted for late term abortion, and circulate their names as widely as possible.

Here is a list of the fourteen with their dioceses and names of their bishops

Today is the day for their bishops to issue a formal statement acknowledging that these men and women have publicly denied their Catholic faith, and if not formally, then have informally excommunicated themselves.

Since their offense is public it should be acknowledged publicly and their pastors should publicly rebuke them and ask them  not to receive the sacraments.

If the bishops and priests do not do this, the faithful in their parishes and dioceses should rise up and blizzard them with letters, emails and the one thing that will really make them sit up and take notice: with holding their contributions.

This hideous crime against humanity, this hidden holocaust will not stop until those in authority stand against it publicly and vehemently.

Consider for a moment the case of Rudolph Hoess, the commandant of Auschwitz. He was a Catholic.

At the time, if you knew what was happening and you had a voice would you speak out against Hoess?

If you knew at the time and you were his bishop or his pastor what would you have done?

I know it is a cliche to scream “Nazi!” at anybody you disagree with, but in this case, are not the crimes of abortion our own hidden holocaust, and are not the politically and financially motivated eugenicists in our day just as evil, and are not the politicians who back them under the flimsy excuse of “women’s right to choose” not guilty of aiding and abetting these crimes?

    Thank you for this so critical blog post, Father.
    Once again, babies will continue to be slaughtered on the altar of
    “a woman’s right”.

    Thank you Father for this article.

    I’ve called the Diocese of Albany and expressed my concern for the soul of Ms. Gillibrand and that the Bishop should formally excommunicate her. Next on my list is the Archdiocese of Boston.

    I’ll be going to Adoration tonight and offering my time spent with the Lord for the souls of these Senators.

    Pray the Rosary for them.

    I’ve either talked or emailed 9 of the diocese’s and Seattle was a two-for. I used to belong to the Archdiocese of Seattle. Sad. Both women and both “Catholic”. And women are supposed to be nurturers.

    Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

    We virtually never hear the Church speak out against abortion, artificial contraception, etc in a Sunday homily. Those subjects never come up. Pastors and bishops have put their heads in the sand. Is it any wonder that this silence has produced senators like this? I’ve written to our Archbishop begging him to encourage pastors to address these issues. I got a form letter back saying – “thank you for your thoughts…etc, etc”. A weak response to say the least.

    Having said that, there’s plenty of information out there on Catholic web sites regarding why all these things are evil. Anyone who is interested and takes the time will learn the truth – despite the silence in their own churches. So, when we come face to face with Christ – ignorance will not be an excuse.
