The Good Politicians Deserve Our Praise

It's getting harder to be a pro-life Congressman these days, just ask Chris Smith R-NJ, who tried to preserve President Bush's reinstatement of the pro-life Mexico City Policy against a hostile Congress. For now, we can count on President Bush to veto, anti-life policies, but we know this may not last past the next election.
Many of our good representatives in Washington have been fighting the good fight for years, and deserve our thanks. I am writing a piece for Canticle Magazine about these good guys, who have served God well in Washington. If you have any suggestions of Congressman or Senators, past or present who should be included, please leave a comment below. They may not be perfect, but they have withstood a lot of opposition for their brave pro-life stand.
So far, I have Senator Sam Brownback, former Senator Rick Santorum, Congressmen Chris Smith and Vito Fusella, and former Congressman Bob Dornan. I would like to add a woman to this list, but being pro-death seems to be a pre-requisite for a woman getting elected to Congress!

It looks like if this pre-requisite was a rule here in my country too.

Let´s hope new young generations will change this shame.

When I see some of this new mothers and wives getting in the arena, I feel very hopeful about it.

And congratulations to these pro-life politicians.
