Before I go… and before more go…

I saw this at the top of New Advent’s page:

In the past 16 months. . .

(Each + represents 8,000 human lives)

Capital Punishment killed 98 Americans .

War in Iraq killed 100,000 people + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Abortionists murdered 1,750,656 American infants + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

“The common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights — for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture — is false and illusory if the right to life is not defended with maximum determination.”

— Pope John Paul II (Post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Christifidelis Laici, “The Vocation and Mission of the Lay Faithful in the Church and in the World” [December 30, 1988], chapter III, § 38b)

Now I’m going to shower, study, pray and sleep. Please join me in the third action.
