Denver Archbishop Praying at Capitol Today for Stop to Abortion Legislation. Bill Seen as 1st of Its Kind in USA, Seeks to Undo Years of Pro-Life Efforts
Denver, Colorado, (Zenit.org). The archbishop of Denver is asking the faithful to join him today at the Colorado state capitol building to pray for a stop to pro-abortion legislation that threatens to undermine years of pro-life work.
Archbishop Samuel Aquila sent a message Monday appealing to "supporters of life" to join him for the prayer service.

"The second reading of Senate Bill 175, which would enshrine the 'right to abortion' into Colorado law, is scheduled for Tuesday, April 15, and it's starting to look like everything is hanging in the balance with the votes of one or two senators," the archbishop wrote. "I have just decided to head to the west steps of the capitol Tuesday, April 15, at 3pm -- the Hour of Divine Mercy -- to beg God for his intercession so that this legislation is stopped. I prayerfully ask that those of you who can, will come and join me.

This is last-minute, and it's certain to involve some Holy Week sacrifices -- not the least of which is the challenge of trying to find parking near the capitol -- but I'm convinced that moments like this are far more important than we can possibly realize."

Karna Swanson, spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of Denver, told the Denver Catholic Register some days ago that the bill could “be a devastating blow that would firmly establish a culture of death here in Colorado.”

“The pro-life movement has been working for decades to promote legislation that protects life and promotes a culture that is life-giving and life-affirming. This legislation directly attacks those efforts, and threatens to sever that most beautiful bond between mother and child,” Swanson said.

Archbishop Aquila sent a request over the weekend for the faithful to take 10 minutes to pray for the defeat of the legislation.
