Pro-Abortion Congresswoman speaking at Archdiocese of Los Angeles Cathedral Plaza Wednesday

Judy Chu has a 100% approval rating from Planned Parenthood and NARAL

The August 23 event at the archdiocese’s Center on the Cathedral Plaza features California Representative Judy Chu, an ardent abortion supporter.

Despite communications with the California Catholic Conference of Bishops and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, it must be reported that pro-abortion Congresswoman Judy Chu is scheduled to speak at the Archdiocese Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels Plaza this Wednesday.  How sad that someone with 100% pro-abortion ratings from Planned Parenthood and NARAL would be given a platform on Cathedral property.

In June, Planned Parenthood executives were similarly scheduled to speak at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Cathedral Plaza of Our Lady of Angels, but when pro-life advocates brought this to the attention of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the pro-abortion event was moved to another location.

We were assured that allowing pro-abortion speakers on the Cathedral property was an oversight and that policies would be enforced to prevent such an egregious mis-use of the Cathedral Plaza from happening again. But, here we are again, just a few short weeks later.

Prior to removing the Planned Parenthood speakers from the Cathedral Plaza in June, an Archdiocesan representative issued this statement:

“The topic for the event, as well as the occupations of both speakers listed in the promotional material, stands in direct contradiction to Catholic moral doctrine and violates our policy for the use of our facilities in the ADLA handbook, which states, ‘speakers should not contradict the mission and principles of the Catholic Church, especially in the area of objective Catholic moral teaching.’ ”

Congresswoman Chu’s 100% pro-abortion voting record, endorsed by both Planned Parenthood and NARAL, surely stands in “direct contradiction to Catholic moral doctrine” and contradicts the “mission and principles of the Catholic Church”, clearly violating the ADLA policy.  Yet, very sadly, there seems to be no moral will on the part of the Archdiocese to relocate this event.

What can be done in such a serious situation?

Here are three Action Items:

• Today, please contact Archbishop Gomez at 213-637-7534 and respectfully ask that this pro-abortion speaker not be given platform on Cathedral property this Wednesday.

• Also, please contact Congresswoman Judy Chu’s office in Pasadena at 626-304-0110 and let her know that Californians do not support her extreme pro-abortion policies, which include the Congresswoman’s promotion of Fetal Harvesting, done by Dr. Mary Gatter, Medical Director at the Pasadena Planned Parenthood, who was caught haggling over the price of fetal body parts, “joking” about wanting to buy a Lamborghini.

• If you are within driving distance, please come pray for life at the Sidewalk in front of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels at 555 West Temple Street, Los Angeles, starting at 8:00 am through 11:00 am during the event this Wednesday, August 23rd.  Pray from home if you live beyond Los Angeles.

    Let’s just face it, with a few rare exceptions—Cordileone in SF, Barber in Oakland, Olmsted in Phoenix, for example—the great majority of US and European “catholic” bishops are afraid to assertively defend the unborn and have tacitly made a deal to “accept” abortion. Or when you force them to discuss the matter, as with “Bp.” McElroy (D-SD), they quickly bait and switch the discussion to capital punishment instead.

    Qui tacet consentire videtur: He who is silent is seen to consent. So many US bishops have accommodated themselves to abortion.

  2. irishsmiles says:

    Is the Archbishop awake and taking care of business? Apparently he doesn’t care.

  3. Not only does this person support abortion, this person supports Chinese-style “sex selective” abortion (i.e. that mothers who preferred say a boy could annihilate baby girls, just for being girls). What a feminist! Not!

    And shame on YOU ARCHBISHOP GOMEZ if you allow it. SHAME!

  4. Ken Savino says:

    So offensive and disrespful of Catholics that are expected to follow the teachings and example set by Bishops.

  5. Unfortunately Archbishop Gomez does not have any backbone or he would put a stop to nonesence such as this. To think that a woman with views such as she has is being allowed to use the Roman Catholic Cathedral as her bully pulpit is a disgrace!!!

  6. Joel Fago says:

    Archbishop Gomez, you are promoting the killing of unborn babies!

  7. Under Cardinal McIntyre, a bishop from Chicago was able to administer the sacrament of Confirmation at a national parish here in Los Angeles. When Manning became archbishop, he denied faculties for this bishop who escaped from the Soviet communists. Today a disciple of Herod is given a free pass to speak on church property. What is wrong with this picture? It shows that those in charge are liberal stooges of Satan. I bet that if a priest from the SSPX, or if someone from Father Gruner’s organization wanted to hold a Rosary rally at the plaza, the archbishop would object. Tragic ! Ave Maria Purrissima !

  8. How does the Archbishop expect parishioners to fight the abortion battle when the leader permits this
    outrageous appearance by such an abortion advocate.

  9. Ray Ayala says:

    You should know that the Archbishop has an “exclusive” contract with Lawrence “Larry” Levy of Chicago to do all the catering for the Cathedral and the Plaza.

    Levy owns Levy Restaurants. Levy is a donor to Planned Parenthood and was also a major donor/supporter for Hillary Clinton for President.

    Why does Archbishop Gomez have a significant contract with a militant pro-abort non-Catholic to help operate the Cathedral property??????

  10. Abortion is the ultimate child abuse. Why is Archbishop Gomez doing business with the child abusers?
    Is Gomez being led around by poor legal counsel?

  11. Wanna bet that the heretical priest Fr. Martin will be invited to speak at the 2018 Religious Education Congress in Anaheim? Archbishop Gomez has been promising to clean up the archdiocese for years with nothing to show for it. All bark no bite.

  12. “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
    [Douay-Rheims Roman Catholic Bible, Matthew 7:15]

  13. “16] By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? [17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. [18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit. [19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. [20] Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.

    [21] Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven”.
    [Douay-Rheims Roman Catholic Bible, Matthew 7:16-21]

  14. John Madrid says:

    In defense of The Good Archbishop let us consider the following. We know in the history of salvation the chosen people of God time and time again refused to obey and betrayed their sacred covenants as harlots would. God never responded to paraphrase, ( get away i’ve had enough and am through with you).
    Only Satan isolates and would say you’ve gone so far you are beyond redemption. In the case of congresswoman Chu outside of her despicable pro choice views, she may have validity in other manners or issues. I was not there but I am pretty certain she did not appear there to articulate any views in contrast to catholic church teaching.
    The fact that the church, in a very mature fashion I would say, dialogues with all breathing…
