Abortion Mandate PDF Print E-mail

Yesterday, Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Seattle, appeared before the House Health Care & Wellness Committee to testify in opposition to HB 1647. 

HB 1647 would mandate abortion coverage in health insurance plans which offer maternity care.  This legislation restricts the freedom of individuals to act according to their consciences.  Employers who are opposed to abortion should not be required to cover such services, nor should individuals who are opposed to abortion be forced to pay premiums for services.

Mass & March For Life PDF Print E-mail

On January 20th, Catholics from across the state gathered to attend the annual Mass and March for Life.

Mass was celebrated at 9:30 a.m. by Bishop Elizondo in the Marcus Pavilion of St. Martin’s University, Lacey.  After Mass, thousands of Catholics gathered for the 37th annual March for Life in Olympia.  The program began at Noon on the Capitol steps. 

This year marks the 42nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion in the United States. In 1970, three years prior to Roe, Washington was the first state in the Union to legalize abortion through a vote of the people.
