Sad News and Great News

Planned Parenthood, which had closed its San Francisco franchise in the midst of a financial scandal, has reopened. The new business will be on Valencia Street, in the heart of San Francisco's overwhelmingly Hispanic Mission District.

More for us to struggle against in San Francisco--but we are used to it.

On the other hand, here is some great news from the Catholic News Agency:

Mexican actor pledges to build largest pro-life women's clinic in US

"Mexican producer and actor Eduardo Verastegui has announced that his organization, Mantle of Guadalupe, is planning to build the largest pro-life women's clinic in the United States.

Verastegui's announcement came during the first-ever gala held by Mantle of Guadalupe and Catholic Charities of Los Angeles.

The gala took place Jan. 15 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills and brought together 300 noted guests, including Philip Rivers from the San Diego Chargers, Mexican actor Karyme Lozano, actor Sean Astin from “The Lord of the Rings,” violinist Roddy Chong and motivational speaker Nick Vujicic.

Vujicic also received an award for his courageous testimony in defense of human life.

During the gala, Verastegui, who is the founder of Mantle of Guadalupe, reiterated his commitment to defend life and announced that the organization’s new goal is the construction of 'the largest women’s clinic in the United States.'

'I will not use my talents except to elevate my Christian, pro-life and Hispanic values,' Verastegui promised the guests."

What a man! Read the whole thing.

I did not know Philip Rivers, the fine quarterback of the San Diego Chargers, and the famous actor Sean Astin were pro-life. Good to hear!
