S.2283: Buffer Zone replacement (“Dispersal”) law

FRI, JUNE 12 - NUMBER 11: The Wednesday crew had a nice surprise this week (June 10). A woman passerby who took a rose from the pro-lifers (thanks to Frank, who buys them!), a short time later came back to thank them.
     Not for the rose, but for the sidewalk counselor who was there in front of Planned Parenthood in January, when she went in for her abortion appointment. The words, “You are a mother!” stuck in her mind. But she came out without having the abortion! Her baby is due in September / October area.
     After receiving cash and other gifts from the pro-lifers, she got a ride home from Pat. Nice work!

THU, MAY 28 - Two more children (#9 & 10) were spared death by abortion this week after they received, via a third party, Eleanor's card offering help and hope to pregnant women. One card came from an unidentified stranger who encountered a crying pregnant woman in a near-empty church. Another card was obtained by a woman from a sidewalk counselor outside of Planned Parenthood; she brought it home to her pregnant daughter.

MON, MAY 25 - MARRIAGE: Ireland is now the first nation to officially go “gay.”

A harbinger of worse to come, I fear, as the West continues to divorce itself from its Christian heritage.

But it did not start with homosexuality, as this insightful article from Crisis Magazine points out:

First, same-sex “marriage” and homosexuals did not kill marriage; they are merely picking over the carcass. Same-sex “marriage” is the direct result of precisely the divorce and cohabitation epidemics that this document tells us are less important. These brought the “abolition of marriage” and devalued it to the point that it became attractive to some homosexuals. Others have long warned that Christian leaders are shockingly silent on these matters, and their warnings now stand vindicated. Same-sex “marriage” is the logical result.

MON, MAY 11 - Last week was a notable week. Thankfully, we had two saved babies; but also many lost children. As usual, the violence of abortion did not remain confined to the abortion facilities, but spilled over to the sidewalk, e.g., verbal threats and vile language.

But first, the good news. On Wednesday, a mother and father accompanied their 30-something daughter into Planned Parenthood. The mother took pro-life material from Eleanor: “Thank you. God bless.” They related that they had tried talking the daughter out of the abortion, without success - yet. After staying inside for about an hour, they - parents, daughter, and boyfriend - came out. They proceeded to congregate near their car, where the smiling daughter and boyfriend had a prolonged hug before they all drove away.

The verbal feedback was sketchy, but (1) there was not enough time for an abortion, and (2) body language indicated a happy outcome. So, we called it #7.

On Friday, Theresa and company spoke with a woman who came out of Planned Parenthood, who said she would not be having the abortion. “Do you need any help?” “No, I just changed my mind!” (#8)

On Friday, a couple walked across the lot of Women's Health Services in Brookline. Abruptly, the man shouted angrily that if we said anything, he would “knock you bleeding into the street,” or some such thing. We spoke anyway, offering help for mother and baby. He went into the facility, apparently preferring to direct his hostility to someone who couldn’t fight back.

Near Planned Parenthood, a woman - not a customer of Planned Parenthood - screamed angrily for a considerable time at Theresa, Connie, and Jane, all sidewalk counselors. She was especially aggravated at one of their signs, which says, “Stop all abortion!” Concerning the sign, the woman (or her demon) said: “That's evil!”

MON, APR 20 - Women's Health Services, Brookline. Saturday Carmel called again to report that a couple who left last week returned this week and had the abortion! Sad, but these things do happen. Sometimes a couple will decide against the abortion, only to go home to the same pressures that brought them there in the first place. So, the count reverts to 4.

THU, APR 16 - Eleanor was at Planned Parenthood on Wednesday morning and when a young man came out and asked her, “Do you have any quarters?” As they talked, Eleanor learned that his sister was there for an abortion, partly occasioned by the recent death of their parents.

    Fortunately, he was courteous enough to listen to Eleanor, who, in her own words, “got quite emotional,” and emphatically insisted that their sadness cannot be an excuse for destroying their mother's grandchild! The young man went back in and when he came out he was excited and accompanied by his sister, who had decided not to have the abortion! (#4)

Another saved life!  A woman stopped at Planned Parenthood this morning (Wednesday) to thank the assembled pro-lifers for their work.
     Her story is that 25 or more years ago, she was homeless and pregnant - and heading an abortion. But on the way into the facility she met some pro-lifers, decided against the abortion, and that was the start of turning her life around. She subsequently gave birth to another child.

WED, MAR 11 - Number 3 confirmed! On Monday, March 9 Eleanor accompanied the woman who had called her Saturday to her appointment at Pregnancy Help, where she viewed the ultrasound of her en utero child.

The woman got Eleanor's card - Providentially - when she told another woman that she was pregnant and thinking of an abortion. The other woman - a former client of Eleanor's - gave her Eleanor's card and said, “She will help you!” Eleanor and Pregnancy Help are doing just that.

TUE, FEB 17 - Baby saved today! (#2) Shortly after 7:30 AM a couple arrived at Women's Health Services in Brookline.

They approached one door of the building - an employees' entrance - which was locked. I called to them while holding our “Pregnant? Free help” sign.

Next, they tried the regular entrance. Locked, and no security guard.

So, they returned to their car, backed out, and headed toward the street.

Julie, another sidewalk counselor, had just arrived as they approached the driveway. They stopped and rolled down the window and chatted briefly with Julie (PHOTO ABOVE). Smiles and thumbs up from the couple! They took pro-life information and drove off.

“What did they say?”

Julie repeated what they told her: “If he hadn't been here we would have gone in!” Pretty humbling! - B.C.

ABOVE: The packed parking lot of the BUSY Women's Health Services abortion facility today. It was even busier Saturday! That's Julie, a sidewalk counselor, in the red jacket.
     The WHS dis-assembly line has customers in and out - out is via the back alley - in two hours or less!

TUE, JAN 27 - Is America hopeless? Breitbart headline: OBAMA APPROVAL RATING AT 50 PERCENT AS REPUBLICANS ABANDON IMMIGRATION CAMPAIGN PROMISES - State of the Union gives boost

WED, JAN 21 - The presidential impersonator gave his State of the Union (much worse!) speech tonight. But I'm not going to tire us with pondering that exercise.
     Instead, I call your attention to a national prayer breakfast of a few years ago, where he also gave a speech. But more important is the speech that preceded Obama's. It was delivered by Eric Metaxas, a name you should know. He is an author of biographies of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and William Wilberforce, among others.
     I encourage you to read the National Review article of Eric's speech - called "devastating" by NR - in which he graciously, but pointedly delivered a message about faith and the scandal of abortion. All while standing just feet from Obama!

FRI, JAN 9 - “Hi, Bill, this is Lorraine with a little bit of good news.
     â€œPraise God, there was a save (#1) this morning! A man and a woman came out of Planned Parenthood and I was gonna offer them some Project Rachel literature. But the woman, with a big smile on her face, said, ‘No, we didn’t do it!’ I said, ‘Praise God!’ We had a little prayer together and they went off.
     â€œThat’s the good news for today. Have a good day, Bill. God Bless.”

THU, JAN 8 - A viral video and the graphic language used by abortionists to describe late-term abortion. From an undercover video by Live Action, reported by LifeNews.com.

MON, JAN 5 - The year ended with baby #60, saved at Planned Parenthood on the morning of December 31. Mary, Eleanor, Ed, Sandy, and the rest of the usual suspects were on hand. Mary encountered the young woman outside of Planned Parenthood's door and offered her a rosary and pro-life material. After briefly conversing with her, Mary called Eleanor over. As Eleanor related later in a phone call from her car, the young woman, who already has two other children, decided against the abortion after seeing the ultrasound. Eleanor also inferred that religious convictions also played a part. The woman accepted Eleanor's card before leaving and promised to call her.

A young woman came out of Marcus Gordon's Haverhill abortion facility on Friday, December 19 and told pro-lifers that she did not have the abortion (she was only in there an hour; not long enough for the “procedure.” That's number 59!

FRI, DEC 5 - Number 58 was saved at the Haverhill abortion facility today, December 5. Our thanks to Bill and Florina for their report and continued presence at that location.

And once again, the All-Weather Mary, outside of Planned Parenthood the rainy day before Thanksgiving, was instrumental. Mary met a woman whose daughter was in distress about her pregnancy and was considering abortion. But after some phone calls and the help of Eleanor and Pregnancy Help, the young woman was set up with a pro-life doctor and saw her ultrasound on Tuesday of this week. She no longer wants an abortion! (#57)

TUE, NOV 25 — A SHORT (2:36) video on sidewalk counseling:

When Jesus walked the earth there were no abortion clinics, but all the same His ministry does reveal a great deal about how we should approach women in sidewalk counseling outside the abortion facility.

In this new video, Pro-Life Action League Executive Director Eric Scheidler shares his perspective on two passages from John’s gospel that shed light on how Jesus ministered to women in situations very similar to that of the abortion-bound woman.

It’s crucial that we take the right approach in the life and death work of sidewalk counseling, and Our Lord gives us a template that leads to mercy and love for women.

SAT, NOV 22 — Two more babies saved today (11/22), one at WHS (#55) and one at P.P. (#56).

AS YOU MAY RECALL from a previous report, Cosmopolitan.com came out to Planned Parenthood on September 13 to gather material for a story for their web site. They had a crew of at least five, including a still photographer, a video cameraman, and an audio man; and did many interviews with pro-lifers and Planned Parenthood workers.

Repeated searches of their site in the subsequent weeks, however, showed no trace of the story. Well, now it has arrived.

The title pretty well sums up their slant: Abortion Clinic Protesters: “Sidewalk Counselors” or “Sidewalk Terrorists”?

As is usually the case in our Leftist media, abortion is a premise; it is never subjected to scrutiny, nor is its legitimacy or safety in any way called into question by the author.

It is pro-lifers and their worldview who are in the dock — and they are not presumed innocent!

It seems that the catalyst for this article is the Supreme Court case overturning the buffer zone; and Cosmo’s annoyance over the Court’s stipulation that the pro-lifers are “counselors” and not “protesters.”

Click here for article.

FRI, NOV 14 - “That is VERY powerful,” said Eleanor. It is her assessment of the two prayer contingents at Planned Parenthood Tuesday and Wednesday mornings of this week.

Each if those days ended with a mother exiting Planned Parenthood late in the morning and then telling a sidewalk counselor, “I couldn’t do it!”

On Tuesday, a woman came out after long reflection in the waiting room. She then spoke to Carmel and told her of her decision for life. (#53)

On Wednesday, Eleanor was about to leave — she had already waited till about noontime for a couple of women — when they came out! The one with the appointment said she was moved by seeing, upon request, her ultrasound. A late decision - but not too late! (#54)

FRI, NOV 7 - Boston Inspectional Services agents - again! - stopped at Planned Parenthood this morning and threatened to seize pro-life signs that stood on the sidewalk.

Even though such signs have been ruled LEGAL by a judge in the Brighton District Court after a seizure years ago by Boston Police. The police have abided by this decision and the Boston Police attorneys have agreed that it is correct.

We even, through Attorney Tom Harvey, received acknowledgement of this status from the past chief of Inspectional Services. But now there is a new chief, said the agent. For some reason, he believes that is now a license to disregard the law. I.e., a license to steal.

How about the NUMEROUS SIDEWALK SIGNS in front of neighborhood businesses? No problem!

Pro-life signs? BIG problem! He said he did not mind at all our handing out pro-life leaflets and holding pro-life signs. [Until . . .?] We’re supposed to feel grateful?

So, Tom Harvey is back on the case.


A YELLOW ROSE was given to a woman heading into Planned Parenthood Wednesday morning by a sidewalk counselor. Mary, a sidewalk counsellor, reported what the woman told the pro-lifers after she came out: “I kept staring at the yellow rose as I sat in the waiting room. Finally, I said to myself - ‘I CANNOT do this!’”

That's number 52! We never know what the catalyst will be.

Special thanks to Frank who provides the roses every week!

FRI, OCT 24 - THIS WEEK we had two more lives saved (#50 & 51). Number 50 came from an off-site encounter by Mary O'Donnell with the father of the pregnant girl. The girl now has an appointment at Pregnancy Help. Number 51 happened Wednesday at Planned Parenthood as a mother and daughter affirmed that the abortion was off.

Number 49 occurred Saturday, October 18 at Women's Health in Brookline. A couple came out, drove out of the parking lot, and told the pro-lifers as they left that they had changed their mind!


ELEANOR IS FEATURED in the recent issue of Our Sunday Visitor; a big spread with photos.

MON, OCT 6 - Carmel called Saturday morning to relate the time of fervent prayer she commenced with Joe, another sidewalk counselor, at 111 Street in Brookline: “Come on, Jesus! We need a save!!” (Recalling intercessions of Moses, Esther, and other biblical figures; seemingly impolite, but coming from loving hearts!) It was only a short time later that a young woman came out (#47) and spoke with Carmel about her change of mind! Carmel also noted that she had been very moved by seeing the live presentation on Saint Faustina in Boston.

Later that same Saturday morning, at Planned Parenthood, a couple came out and spoke to Ruth, one of our counselors. The woman decided against the abortion. "Why?" asked Ruth. "Because of this man," said the woman, referring to her male companion. (#48)

FRI, OCT 3 -

WEDNESDAY, PLANNED PARENTHOOD: A woman (ABOVE, LEFT in striped blouse) just came out of the abortion facility at the urging of her husband, who had talked extensively with our sidewalk counselors.
     The couple declined further help; we hope they stay the course! This is number 46!


Number 45 was saved in dramatic fashion on Saturday, September 20 at Planned Parenthood, followed by a visit that morning to Pregnancy Help. On the folowing Tuesday, Eleanor drove #45 to Pregnancy Help again for an ultrasound, which the mother was very happy about. She was also grateful to receive baby clothes, gift cards, and other items.

WED, SEPT 3 - Briefing on After Tiller:

The PBS special After Tiller aired Monday night, as described below.

Here is some background information - which you may not hear on the program - on one of the four subjects: Warren Hern of the Boulder Abortion Clinic (one of the very few facilities in the U.S. that uses the word “abortion” in its title).

According to Dr. Hern, pregnancy is “an illness.” In his own words: “Accordingly, the open recognition and legitimation of pregnancy as an illness would be consistent with the individual self-interest of those experiencing pregnancy, good standards of medical practice, and the continued survival of human and other species.” Click here to read his article on his web site.

Need we add that Dr. Hern offers treatment for this “illness”?

Warren Hern is an ultra-environmentalist. According to Dr. Hern, the human species has become a cancer on the planet! “[T]he human species is an example of a malignant ecotumor, an uncontrolled proliferation of a single species that threatens the existence of other species in their habitats.” Click for the full article.

Hern is the author of the book, Abortion Practice, a textbook on how to do abortions. It's the Middle East brought into the doctor's office. He describes in vivid detail the killing of the children in utero. For example, how the forceps is used to crush the “calvaria” (so clinical sounding!) - i.e., the skull; recalls Calvary, “which is called the skull.” He knows that his victim is dead when he observes the flow of brain tissue!

"To give these doctors a voice . . ." (how about a voice for their victims??)

PBS does PR for 3rd trimester abortionists!!

PBS has scheduled a a Point of View special for Monday September 1: After Tiller, “a deeply humanizing and probing portrait of the only four doctors in the United States still openly performing third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas--and in the face of intense protest from abortion opponents.”

Where would we be without such heroes?!!

The directors admit that they give a one-sided point of view in this show: that “of these four doctors.” Alas, “these doctors have frequently been forced to live in the shadows. As filmmakers, our goal was to give these doctors a voice.” [As if abortionists have been short-changed by the media!]

As part of their full court press, PBS offers: material for you to Host a Premiere Party, a Lesson Plan, a Discussion Guide, a Partner Tookit and more!! You can see the trailer and download materials (there is some useful info) for After Tiller on the PBS web site: http://www.pbs.org/pov/aftertiller/.

The show can be viewed online From September 2 - October 1.

90 minutes.  Comments accepted online.

WED, AUG 20 -

Sidewalk counselors Wilson and Pablo (ABOVE) had a big day Saturday. They had an extended conversation with a young man (INSET) who had brought a woman into Planned Parenthood. He went back inside and they continued their outreach. About an hour later, the couple came out! (#43) The man embraced Wilson and Pablo and Ruth had a nice talk with the young woman.

ALSO: Wilson told me of a baby that was saved a few weeks ago that had gone unrecorded - that's #44.

Pro-abort Janet Harris doesn't like abortion being called - especially by Planned Parenthood and NARAL! - a “difficult decision”: “It is a tacit acknowledgment that terminating a pregnancy is a moral issue requiring an ethical debate. To say that deciding to have an abortion is a ‘hard choice’ implies a debate about whether the fetus should live, thereby endowing it with a status of being. It puts the focus on the fetus rather than the woman. As a result, the question, ‘What kind of future would the woman have as a result of an unwanted pregnancy?’ gets sacrificed. By implying that terminating a pregnancy is a moral issue, pro-choice advocates forfeit control of the discussion to anti-choice conservatives.” (Washington Post, August 15)

Excellent rebuttal to an article in Mother Jones that supported abortion via an ad hominem attack on pro-lifers.

THU, AUG 7 - John Paul II and Fulton Sheen on the atomic bomb and conversion

Raymond Ibrahim: “My mission has been to open Western eyes to the truths and reality of Islam, at least the reality of how it is understood and practiced by many Muslims, for Western eyes have been closed shut in recent times.”

FRI, AUG 1 - As expected, Governor Deval Patrick signed into law the new buffer zone replacement law Wednesday afternoon, which gives police the authority to order people who block access to an abortion facility to move behind a line that is 25 feet from the entrance. The signing took place in a press conference, where Patrick was flanked by other abortion fanatics. Although the Supreme Court found, in McCullen v. Coakley, that the state had violated the First Amendment rights of civil rights activists by imposing a 35-foot buffer zone at the behest of Planned Parenthood, the agents of the state, i.e., AG Martha Coakley and former Planned Parenthood board member Deval Patrick, did not come to the defense of pro-lifers, who were the victims of this injustice, but instead formed (renewed, actually) a partnership with Planned Parenthood, who perpetrated the injustice in the first place. But that comes as no surprise, as they, also, promoted the buffer zone law.

Attorney Michael DePrimo, who represented the Eleanor McCullen et al. in their challenge of the buffer zone law, issued the following statement:

“The new buffer zone law is a backdoor attempt to interfere with the constitutional right of free speech in the service of women seeking abortion whose minds are not made up – women who are looking for the hope, help, love, and concrete aid offered by Eleanor McCullen and other peaceful sidewalk counselors. This new law chills life-saving speech by threatening massive civil fines for non-violent acts such as peacefully offering a leaflet of information to passersby on a public sidewalk.

“The reality is that individuals in the abortion industry have a business incentive to falsely characterize any attempt at pro-life communication on the public ways outside abortion clinics as a form of harassment or intimidation, no matter how peaceful. It is important for law enforcement to understand that momentary attempts at peaceful communication to offer hope, help and love are constitutionally protected expressive conduct, despite the legislature’s rejection of an amendment offered by Representative Jim Lyons that would have made that expressly clear.

“If a citizen is threatening public safety, he or she can be arrested under current state or federal law, and then enjoined by a judge based on evidence and testimony. The new law signed by the Governor ignores those common resources, and instead invites state censorship by enabling police to order peaceful citizens to stand on a 25-foot line for the remainder of the abortion clinics’ business hours. The new law is unconstitutional not only because it is vague and overbroad, but also because it purports to grant to law enforcement the power to issue a temporary restraining order—a power that may only be exercised by courts.

“The first amendment protection of free speech cannot be placed behind painted lines. My client Eleanor McCullen and the other peaceful sidewalk counselors will continue to serve the women of Boston who deserve real alternatives to abortion. We will closely monitor law enforcement’s use of the new law to ensure that our clients’ peaceful exercise of first amendment rights is not infringed.”

Late report: Lorraine talked to a young couple on Friday, July 18 outside of Planned Parenthood, who indicated that they decided against the appointed abortion (#37)!

According to a WBUR report, "officials" in the abortion industry have said that customers have been cancelling appointments (Thank you, Jesus!) in the wake of their propaganda about pro-life "violence" and

THU, JUL 17 - Senate Bill 2106 - the "dispersal law" - went from first draft to passage by the full Massachusetts State Senate on Wednesday night in what may be record time.

This was after the Judiciary Committee heard from pro-life people Wednesday, who gave hours of powerful, well-reasoned testimony about their work as sidewalk counselors, crisis pregnancy center workers, about the legal flaws of the bill, as well as its retaliatory character in the face of the Supreme Court's 9-0 decision in favor of pro-lifers' free speech rights.

The high court's decision has really bothered the ranks of abortion fanatics - among whom are our lawmakers - who may well have been driven literally crazy by it. They apparently have no ability to discern right from wrong on the issue, and can only offer hypnotic assent to the serial lies of pro-abortion activists, no matter how ill-founded or illogical.

But this follows from their allegiance in the first instance to abortion itself. Having sold their souls to that lie, they view all corollary matters through that prism. In Scriptural terms, we are seeing Romans 1 lived out before our eyes.

Great analysis (from Tuesday) of the dispersal bill and the full text of the bill by MassResistance.

Two more babies saved: one last Friday and another Saturday: #35 and 36

WED, JUL 2 - In the wake of the buffer zone law being struck down by the Supreme Court, Massachusetts political leaders and representatives of the abortion industry [is there a difference?] vowed to strike back with new legislation to keep sidewalk counselors away from women considering an abortion.

Cities surrender buffer zones! The cities of Burlington, Vermont, and Madison, Wisconsin have opted to suspend enforcement of their laws requiring pro-life sidewalk counselors to stay away from abortion facilities.

WED, JUNE 25 - Evelyn and Paul, another sidewalk counselor, were involved with another baby being saved at Planned Parenthood on Saturday (#34)! A married couple went into Planned Parenthood after talking with the two pro-life counselors; they acknowledged that an abortion was scheduled. About 30 minutes later they came out. The man said, "She does not want to talk now," but took pro-life pregnancy center information and said he would call. We count this as a saved baby but pray for them, as their may not yet be a change of heart involved. Evelyn told us that she was also involved in a saved baby the previous Saturday, which had not been reported (#33).

Robert Royal - No one much feels the need to “preach the Gospel to all nations” anymore  — missionary work is essentially disappearing.

WED, JUNE 11 - Babies saved is now at 31:  two more women were connected with Pregnancy Help after talking with sidewalk counselors Ray (30) and Mary (31)!

Pope Francis said something so important last week that it will either be widely ignored or widely disparaged.
     The pope criticized these marriages, in which the spouses do not want children, in which the spouses want to remain without fertility. This culture of well-being convinced us: It's better not to have children! It's better! You can go explore the world, go on holiday, you can have a villa in the countryside; you can be carefree. It might be better — more comfortable — to have a dog, two cats, and the love goes to the two cats and the dog.

TUE, JUNE 10 - From Joe Doyle of the Catholic Action League:


TUESDAY, JUNE 10, 2014

CONTACT: C. J. DOYLE (781) 251-9739


Boston's annual homosexual "Pride" Parade---which will occur this Saturday, June 14th---is a cauldron of depravity. It is characterized by lewd behavior, immodest dress, and lurid displays of exhibitionism and sadomasochism. The message of the parade, and that of the festival which follows it in City Hall Plaza, is one of radical rejection of Christian morality, of pride in mortal sin.

Incredibly, this year it will actually be worse. The marshals of the 2014 parade will be the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a grotesque group of transvestites whose members costume themselves as Catholic nuns. They have a long history of mocking the Catholic Faith, producing obscene parodies of Catholic worship, exploiting Catholic religious imagery, and profaning Catholic symbols and sacramentals, such as the crucifix. Their blasphemies and sacrileges include the "Hunky Jesus" contest and the "Condom Savior Mass," where contraceptives are distributed in place of Holy Communion.

Astonishingly, one of Boston's most popular Catholic churches, Saint Anthony's Shrine---administered by Franciscan friars, members of the same religious family as our Capuchin archbishop---will host an information booth at the festival in City Hall Plaza, where the parade ends. Whatever evasions, excuses, or rationalizations are offered, any sane person would reasonably conclude that the presence of the friars will send a signal of support and approval for an event which celebrates the sin of impurity against nature.

This is a betrayal of the Catholic Faith, and it is uncharitable to the souls who will be lost by confirming them in their deadly sins. Sadly, when it pertains to homosexuality, this is not the first time that Saint Anthony's has compromised its Catholic identity.

Please contact Cardinal Sean O'Malley and ask him to put a halt to this grave scandal! You may e-mail His Eminence at ArchbishopSean@RCAB.org or leave a telephone message at 617-254-0100 or 617-782-2544.

No one in secular society should be expected to take seriously Catholic teaching about marriage, about chastity outside of marriage, or about Catholic ideals of modesty and purity in speech, dress, and behavior, when one of Boston's best known Catholic institutions participates in something as course, as crudely lascivious, and as flagrantly pornographic as a homosexual pride festival. Please urge your family and friends to join you in contacting the Cardinal!

Thank you.
