Voting for a Culture of Life - based upon the Good Samaritan Story - Luke 10: 25-37.

This article was inspired by the Holy Spirit before the 2008 Presidential Election and was published in the Diocese of Baton Rouge's Catholic Commentator (CC) not long before my Letter to the Editor was used in response to the confusing info that had been noted in it.

I remember how Catholics got so confused before the last presidential election with all that "Faithful Citizenship" stuff - which unfortunately and deceptively swayed the undecided Catholic swing voters to chose a culture of death.

This editorial used a culture of life analogy of the "Good Samaritan" account (Luke 10: 25-37).

Picture: - from the January 21, 2012 Louisiana Life March

It happened that a pregnant woman fell victim to the persuasion of her family and friends to decide to get an
abortion. They “stripped her” of her long held culture of life beliefs and emotionally “beat her” to change this
thinking and practice to a culture of death – leaving her feeling “half-dead.”

Her priest happened to find out about the woman’s situation but chose to “pass by” on the chance to meet with her after Mass one day. He believed that it was not his business getting involved in such “private matters”
even though he was “publicly” pro-life.

Likewise, a friend of the woman became aware of her predicament but also “passed by” when she saw her at a local coffee shop. The acquaintance was noted
as being pro-choice and felt she could not impose her beliefs on another person.

But a “faithful citizen,” a regular sidewalk counselor at a local abortion clinic, happened to see her. He “approached the victim,” kindly greeted her, “bandaged her” with a smile, as well as he “poured out the oil
and wine” of compassion over her stressful emotional and spiritual state of being.

He also provided factual information about the biology of life. He “lifted her up” spiritually, and she agreed to be taken by her friend to a care pregnancy center (cpc) and a shelter to care for her.

The next day, the “faithful citizen” took out two “silver coins” of financial assistance for the cpc and shelter for taking care to help the woman decide to allow the unborn child to be born and possibly to be put up for adoption.

He also referred the woman to the local American Holocaust Memorial, where she could get diapers and baby/maternity clothing if needed.

“Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the woman and the unborn child victims?”

May we be the TRUE “Faithful Citizens” of God, and vote likewise.

Unfortunately, many misinformed Catholics chose to vote for a "culture of death" and now we are left with Obamacare, Komen support for Planned Parenthood, etc.

How will we vote this time?
