Next Speaker of the House Could be Pro-Life Catholic

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Journalist In stark contrast to the pro-abortion "Catholic" Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the next Speaker of the U.S. House could be a practicing Catholic who prays daily and is a staunch defender of human life. The Hill is reporting that House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), who could become the next Speaker of the House should the GOP regain the majority tomorrow as expected, recently told radio host Mike Gallagher that prayer has been one of the ways that he has been coping with the frantic pace of election-year politics. “I’ve been praying all day, every day, trying to make it through this election and make sure our team is successful,” Boehner said. “[Prayer] does work,” Boehner told Gallagher. “You’ve just got to stay at it every day and build a closer relationship with our Savior.” A practicing Roman Catholic who is staunchly pro-life, the perpetually tan chain-smoking Republican is one of 12 children from a working-class Catholic family who is now the proud father of two daughters. Boehner has never been known to mince words, and was an outspoken opponent of abortion funding in ObamaCare. When the president issued an Executive Order that allegedly corrected these problems, Boehner saw through the empty gesture. " . . . (N)o Executive Order or regulation can override a statutory mandate unless Congress passes a law that prohibits federal funding from being used in this manner," he said. Boehner also intends to press forward with a bill sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) that will codify the Hyde Amendment which prohibits taxpayer funding of abortion. Called the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act", the bill will make the Hyde Amendment permanent law. He has also vowed to repeal ObamaCare. “House Republicans are fighting to repeal this life-threatening health care law and replace it with responsible solutions focused on lowering costs and expanding access to quality, affordable care while protecting the dignity of all human life.” © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly®/Women of Grace®
