Jesus did not suffer so horribly and die on the cross so that millions of babies could be slaughtered each year.

Americans are about to lose so many of our precious freedoms, and we'll be crippled economically to boot.
Someone, somewhere is laughing.
It is not Our Lord.
Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.
