Life Issues Forum: #StandWithCathyforum
By Deirdre A. McQuade

No one should ever be forced to participate in an abortion against his or herwill. Yet that's exactly what happened to Catherine "Cathy" Cenzon-DeCarlo, RN, whose nursing license and very livelihood were threatened if she didn't assist at an elective late-term abortion. Medical personnel need stronger conscience protections in federal law so this will never happen again.

Cathy was an operating room nurse at a major New York City hospital in 2009, when she was forced to participate in a 22-week abortion against her clearly stated advance objections. Cathy has suffered deep trauma from witnessing the bloody dismemberment of the unborn child and accounting for all his or her tiny body parts afterwards. She says it was like "a horror film unfolding."

Jubilee of Mercy Excerpts from Pope Francis

It is indeed my wish that the Jubilee be a living experience of the closeness of the Father, whose tenderness is almost tangible, so that the faith of every believer may be strengthened and thus testimony to it be ever more effective.
I wish that the Jubilee Indulgence may reach each one as a genuine experience of God's mercy, which comes to meet each person in the Face of the Father who welcomes and forgives, forgetting completely the sin committed.  Read more
