Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

Health Care Reform

My Dear Classmates:

There are very few times in life when we are given a "do over." This is one of those times. With the election of Senator Brown to fill Senator Kennedy's seat we have reset the health care debate and the Right to Life Issue. Let us not waste this opportunity to insure that there are no federal tax dollars paying for abortion anywhere. On February 22nd this year the following comment was on the editorial page of the Saint Louis Review, the official newspaper of the Archdiocese. It stated" A majority of Americans know that the right to life is foundational to all substantive reform which attempts to improve the culutral life of our nation and its citizens."

Pope John Paul II said very clearly that life is the gratest priority. Above all 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, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all otherpersonal rights, is not defended with maximum determination."

what hypocrites we democrats are--we love the murderer but want to allow the killing of infants. I am completely baffled by this. I don't want to kill anyone--even the murderer. What the murderer did was wrong and we in our measured way have no right to decide to do something without a justification of passion or necessity. And to murder an infant is unthinkable. But it is done every day.
