A recent Gallup Poll showed that the Mexico City Policy repealed by executive fiat by President Obama is unpopular with approximately 65% of American taxpayers who will be footing the bill for abortions in the third world and made accomplices in the killing of unborn infants worldwide.
You have a choice and the freedom to speak up on behalf of the defenseless whom government is meant to protect.
Tell your senators and congressmen:
You want them to codify the Mexico City policy.
You want them to deny taxpayer funds to international organizations and agencies that promote or perform abortions overseas so that it will not have to be reconsidered each year during the appropriations process.
You do not want to be forced into complicity with abortions through your tax dollars!
Our country doesn’t have the right to kill the innocent, here or abroad.
Joseph Pearce in his The Quest for Shakespeare argues convincingly for the Catholicism of William Shakespeare. Pearce builds his position with scholarship and logic like a gothic arch; one pillar rising on biographical evidence and the other from the text of Shakespeare’s works.
From The Merchant of Venice, when Portia speaks to Shylock, Act IV, Scene I:
The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown.
His scepter shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings.
But mercy is above this sceptered sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings;
It is an attribute of God himself;
And earthly power doth then show like God’s
When mercy seasons justice.
