Wanted: Catholic Women, Ages 18-35, to Make A Difference
Today, Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan appeared on CBS This Morning to present the Church’s position. Ahead of his appearance, however, CBS correspondent Bill Plante appeared on-air to report that the White House sees this as a Generational Issue and is counting on Catholic Women who are of the age most likely to use contraception. In other words, President Obama needs to receive feedback—or push back—from that same demographic: faithful Catholic women between the ages of 18 and 35.
Please, if you are in this age range, please write to the White House and to your politicians. Let them know you are in that demographic, and tell them you support the Church. You can e-mail the White House on their page, Corresponding With the White House. Please do it today. You can make a difference!
While you’re at it, you can sign the St. Michael Society Petition and the Manhattan Declaration Petition. But if you do only one thing, please contact the White House. Then follow up with your politicians.
Here is a website that makes it easy to write to your politicians as well. It writes the letter and finds your politicians for you, linked to from the USCCB.
Please do this now, and spread the word to your 18-35-year-old family and friends who support the bishops.
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Catholic women, daughters of God. You are embody the purity of Mary, the strength of Joan of Arc, the simple elegance of Therese. The world looks to you, now.
May God bless you, may His face shine upon you.
