"What you did to the least of these, you did to me." Although Jesus said many things, His clearest concern was for the vulnerable. The vulnerable include our veterans, seniors, children and families.

PRESS RELEASE: Rep. Bill Johnson Attends Pro-life Rally Then Attacks Protections for Unborn Children

Rep. Bill Johnson Attends Pro-life Rally Then Attacks Protections for Unborn Children
Catholics United calls on Ohio Congressman to recognize the need to protect all unborn human life from Mercury poison
Washington DC – Yesterday Rep. Bill Johnson attended the annual March for Life and gave a speech in support of the need to protect prenatal human life. Only a few hours later, he then took the floor of the United States House of Representatives and railed against new public health standards that will specifically protect unborn babies and infants from Mercury poisoning. Mercury is a heavy metal that severely harms the brain development of children. Coal burning power plants are responsible for the majority of all Mercury pollution in the United States. In response to Rep. Bill Johnson's actions, Catholics United executive director, James Salt, issued the following statement:
“The dictionary states that a hypocrite is a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs. Yesterday Bill Johnson demonstrated just what this looks like. If Bill Johnson were serious about defending the lives of the unborn, he shouldn't attack the public health standards specifically designed to protect unborn babies from Mercury and heavy metal poisoning.”

Charity Should Come Before Politics
Do you believe Christ taught us to first serve the poor and marginalized, no matter their beliefs? If so, we agree.
