Wisconsin Catholic bishops urge faithful to vote pro-life, pro-family


Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki, Madison Bishop Robert Morlino and Green Bay Bishop David Ricken are urging fellow Catholics to vote for a culture of life in tomorrow’s elections.  Their strongly worded statements have attracted broad media coverage.

 In message to the Milwaukee diocesan faithful entitled “Vote for a culture of life,” Archbishop Listecki writes that “a Catholic who knows that a candidate supports the legalization of the direct taking of innocent life participates in evil…As you prepare to vote this Tuesday, please take the time to know the candidates and the issues they represent, and make your vote count for fashioning a ‘culture of life.’”  Please click here for Archbishop Listecki’s full message.

 In a message to the Green Bay diocesan faithful entitled “An important moment,” Bishop Ricken writes “To vote for someone in favor of these positions (abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and homosexual ‘marriage’) means that you could be morally ‘complicit’ with these choices which are intrinsically evil. This could put your own soul in jeopardy.”  Please click here for Bishop Ricken’s full message as well as a story in LifeSiteNews.

  And in a message to the Madison diocesan faithful entitled “Official guidelines for forming a Catholic conscience in the Diocese of Madison,” Bishop Morlino writes “No Catholic may, in good conscience, vote for ‘pro-choice’ candidates, or they must choose the candidate who would place greater restrictions on abortion.” The Bishop makes similar statements concerning the issues of “same-sex marriage” and religious liberty.  Please click here for Bishop Morlino’s full message  as well as a story in the Wisconsin State Journal.

 



U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder tied to abortionist accused of malpractice, patient's death, and Medicaid fraud


"Now we understand why Eric Holder is so bent on wrongfully prosecuting peaceful pro-life advocates," Dana Cody, executive director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation, told LifeSiteNews.

BY Ben Johnson

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 31, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Documents
uncovered by pro-life activists show that Attorney General Eric Holder is tied to an abortionist who has been accused of defrauding Medicaid, killing a woman during a botched abortion, and allowing another woman’s child to die due to sub-par medical care.

Critics say this apparent conflict of interest may explain his obsession
with prosecuting peaceful pro-life activists.

Government documents show that Eric Holder’s wife and sister-in-law rented
facilities to abortionist Tyrone Cecil Malloy. 

Dr. Sharon Malone Holder, an OB-GYN, and Margie Malone Tuckson of
Minneapolis, owned the College Park, Georgia, property that housed Malloy’s Old National Gynecology, an abortion facility.

Confronted by investigators, the women denied ownership. “I don’t own this property, and my sister does not own this property,” Margie Malone Tuckson explained to Watchdog.org, because “we are not technically on this deed.”

Instead, the sisters transferred ownership to a blind trust on August 27,
2009. They are the trust’s only two trustees.

“Now we understand why Eric Holder is so bent on wrongfully prosecuting
peaceful pro-life advocates,” Dana Cody, executive director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation, told LifeSiteNews.com.

“It looks to me like the attorney general and his wife are in business

with the abortion industry,” Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said.
