Pro-Life Democrats

Excerpt from an article from Life News.  While Is sometimes disagree with Life News conservative slant, it's publisher, Steven Etelt is a very nice man whom I have been privileged to correspond with numerous times.  He has never held my being a progressive side pro-lifer against me.


Bishop Robert Hennessy presided at a special Mass at Our Lady of Czestochowa Church, and Marek Lesniewski-Laas, honorary consul of the Republic of Poland, delivered greetings from the Polish government. But Flynn, who was born in the neighborhood, spoke personally of the Holy Father he got to know so well while serving at the Vatican:
I spoke with the pope on numerous occasions and traveled to several countries with him, but his personal kindness to my family will be what I will always be most grateful for. I was with him in Boston long before he became Pope, and was in Rome when he died.
....
Ray Flynn is a Democrat who embodies precisely what he admired so much about John Paul II — a man who speaks the truth to a society that doesn’t want to hear it.
LifeNews.com Note: Deal W. Hudson is the president of Catholic Advocate, a pro-life group that promotes faithful Catholic participation in politics and is the former director of InsideCatholic.com. He is the author of Onward, Christian Soldiers: The Growing Political Power of Catholics and Evangelicals in the United States.
