"The Montana Catholic Conference has released a statement critical of the efforts of state’s pro-lifers who are seeking recognition of human personhood via a state constitutional amendment."
"I am well aware of the opinions of the “leading pro-life attorneys” who are giving these bishops bad advice. I have found their arguments flawed on several levels. In fact, I recently addressed those of one such attorney, Clarke Forsythe of Americans United for Life, who has insisted that those of us who are working toward human personhood are “heading toward a brick wall.”
"Sadly, his arguments, along with those of James Bopp Jr., Bopp, Coleson & Bostrom’s senior partner and the National Right to Life Committee’s general counsel, appear to have resonated with Catholic bishops for reasons I find both disturbing and antithetical to Catholic teaching."
"We encourage the Catholic bishops of Montana and elsewhere to set aside the disingenuous argument that the passage of a personhood amendment to a state constitution "might trigger an appellate process that could strengthen Roe v. Wade.”
HUMAN PERSONHOOD AND ILL-ADVISED CATHOLIC BISHOPS
December 9, 2009, by Judie Brown
[excerpts, emphasis added]
ROME IS OPPOSED TO ENDING "ABORTION" IN AMERICA:
The Vatican / Pope-appointed Roman Catholic Bishops in State after State, at least since 2006, have OPPOSED State-Level Personhood Legislative efforts to END, not just perpetually regulate Child-Murder-by-"Abortion" - as espoused and practiced by fellow Anti-State-Level-Personhood "incrementalists" and Child-Murder "regulators" National Right to"Life" [sic] and CFR/Jesuit-advised Americans United for "Life" [sic].
The Pope's Roman Catholic Bishops have OPPOSED State-Level Personhood Legislation in:
Michigan (2006), Georgia (2008), Colorado (2008 & 2009), Montana (2008 & 2009), North Dakota (2009),
and Florida (2009).
Principled, pro-personhood, (albeit) Roman Catholic, Mrs. Judie Brown once again reports, documents, and exposes this ongoing, repeated OPPOSITION of the Roman Catholic Bishops to ENDING abortion via State-Level Personhood.
If you are a born-again Christian, please pray that God would have mercy upon this principled, courageous pro-life / anti-abortion woman, and that He would open her eyes to the reality that the Roman Catholic Bishops could not maintain this repeated, ongoing Anti-Personhood position over a number of years, without the backing, and indeed, the instruction, of the Vatican / Pope / Jesuit General; and that God would further extend His grace to Judie Brown, and completely deliver her from the false Babylonian religion of Rome, as He has been so merciful to do over the centuries for so many multitudes of other souls, including this writer !
