Bush's 2000 presidential victory was made possible by a Supreme Court decision on December 12, 2000 -- feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the Americas as well as pro-life forces. Bush's brother, Jeb, governor of Florida, is a deeply Catholic man who was converted by his wife, a woman devoted to Guadalupe.

During the election crisis Jeb’s wife made a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico to pray. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of North and South America and patroness of the unborn. On December 12th, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Jeb’s wife prayed for the administration of George W. Bush and consecrated it to Our Lady.

In his first official foreign trip, Bush visited Mexico and while there stopped at Our Lady of Guadalupe Basilica.

We all know what a truly pro-Life president would look like, so let us pray that is in George W's future.

I can understand the viewpoint that most Republicans are more accurately "less pro-abortion than Democrats" rather than being truly pro-life, but from another standpoint - the current president and political party are in control of the government. They may not be perfect (or even worth voting for), but they are also much closer to a pro-life position and less prayers away from taking that fateful step to the right conviction that no exception can be made when it comes to the lives of the innocent unborn.

While we shouldn't give the president a free pass when he puts political expediency over unborn lives, we should also not write him off as a lost cause to be ignored and scorned rather than supported and prayed for.

This part I knew. I'm reminded that I thought it would take a miracle to prevent Demcorat theft of the election.

Wow. That is awesome. This is why we got to get Bush re-elected, he can appoint the Supreme Court Justices that will overturn Roe v. Wade.
