Kudos to Denver Archbishop Samuel Aquila and the good people of Colorado who succeeded in killing S.B. 175, a pro-abortion bill which, in the Archbishop’s words, was “an over-reaching piece of legislation” that would “essentially shut down any attempt to pass life-affirming legislation in Colorado ever again.”
“More than that,” continued Archbishop Aquila, “it enshrines the ‘right to abortion’ into Colorado law.”
The Archbishop rallied hundreds of people to the steps of the Colorado State Capitol to protest the law, reported the Catholic News Agency. He told the crowd that “Some of the senators have said they have shut off their phones. Some of them have said they have never been contacted by so many.”
In a letter thanking all those who played a part in overcoming S.B. 175, the Archbishop reminded the faithful:
“Our hope lies not in the powers of government, nor the laws of man, but in the Resurrected God-Man who conquers the grave and never ceases to be present among His followers.”
During this Easter Season, let us remember these words.
A happy and blessed Easter to all.
