Our Lady has asked us to pray for our leaders. We have an obligation and responsibility also to choose leaders who will honor and protect and obey God’s laws, promote truth, morality, protect the family and the institution of marriage and most importantly protect human life from natural conception to natural death.
"I am your Mother, and the Guardian of My children.” Our Lady, February 10, 1975
“My Immaculate Heart reaches out to all mankind.” Our Lady, September 28, 1974
"My child, obedience is a word that has been distorted and used for a person's own evaluation, whereas you will understand, My child: obedience is always first and uppermost to your Eternal Father in Heaven.”
Our Lady, December 7, 1978
Our Lady’s Words to the United States
Our Lady - "My child and My children, children, I wish that you make it known to your countrymen in the United States and Canada, and all the nations of the world, that We cannot tolerate the murders of the unborn. This is a sacrilege of the most foulest manner in the eyes of the Eternal Father, and shall be punishable by death. My children, more young souls sent upon earth by the Eternal Father have been destroyed in the past years - since the passing of lax laws by your government, more young souls have been destroyed than in many World Wars.
“ Therefore, We say unto you now, and I plead with you, as your Mother, to turn back from your life of sin. Sin has truly, My children, become a way of life in your nation and the world. And the Eternal Father says He shall not allow this to continue much longer.” - Apparition of May 17, 1986
Our Lady- “Are you so blind that you do not recognize the acceleration of sin among you? Murders abound, thievery, all manner of carnage, destruction of young souls, abortion, homosexuality, condemned from the beginning of time by the Eternal Father. Yet sin has become a way of life. Sin is condoned now, even unto the highest judges of your land and your lands throughout the world. As you have sown so shall you reap. Sin is death, not only of the spirit, but of the body. Wars are a punishment for man's sin, his greed, his avarice.”
Apparition of August 14, 1981
Our Lady- "O My children, how long must I travel far and wide throughout your world persevering because I love you as your Mother, and I want to save you from yourselves. For I cry out as My Son, 'Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Apparition of August 14, 1981
Our Lady- "Our hearts are torn because of the wanton murder of the young by evil man. Abortion, My children, is murder, the most foulest of deeds, that is punishable by death! And what is worse than death of the soul?”
Apparition of December 28, 1976
And I repeat again: all who become part of or condone homosexuality shall be destroyed!
All who become part of or condone abortion, the murder of the young, shall be destroyed!
All who seek to cast out the discipline given by the Eternal Father in the Commandments, the Ten Commandments from your God - they, too, shall be destroyed!”
Apparition of June 2, 1979
"The Sacrament of Marriage was given for the union of man and woman in love and godliness.”
Our Lord Jesus, June 6, 1987
“The greatest attack from satan shall be upon family life. If you break down the family, you will break down the nation.”
Apparition of March 15, 1978
Our Lady- “The family that will pray together shall stay together.”
Apparition of March 18, 1976
Our Lady- "Remain unified in your family lives. The institution of your country - the great foundation is based on family life. Destroy the family and you destroy your country. The enemies -the enemy is already within your country. Watch and pray well, My children."
Apparition of June 18, 1980
Our Lady- "How can a great country like the United States fall, you say, My child? You ask Me in your heart. I read your heart. I will tell you why. Because they have given themselves over to satan. When a country has lost its morality and seeks the pleasures of the flesh, giving over, themselves over to all manner of abominations, like homosexuality, and condoning this up to the highest courts of the land, then that country shall fall.”
Apparition of November 1, 1985
Excerpt of the Opening Letter ‘ Faithful Citizenship’
It is the teaching of the Catholic Church from the very beginning, founded on her understanding of her Lord’s own witness to the sacredness of human life, that the killing of an unborn child is always intrinsically evil and can never be justified.
If those who perform an abortion and those who cooperate willingly in the action are fully aware of the objective evil of what they do, they are guilty of grave sin and thereby separate themselves from God’s grace.
This is the constant and received teaching of the Church. It is, as well, the conviction of many other people of good will.
To make such intrinsically evil actions legal is itself wrong. This is the point most recently highlighted in official Catholic teaching. The legal system as such can be said to cooperate in evil when it fails to protect the lives of those who have no protection except the law.
In the United States of America, abortion on demand has been made a constitutional right by a decision of the Supreme Court. Failing to protect the lives of innocent and defenseless members of the human race is to sin against justice. Those who formulate law therefore have an obligation in conscience to work toward correcting morally defective laws, lest they be guilty of cooperating in evil and in sinning against the common good.

“Human life is a gift from God, sacred and inviolable. Because every human person is created in the image and likeness of God, we have a duty to defend human life from conception until natural death and in every condition.”
“We urge Catholics and others to promote laws and social policies that protect human life and promote human dignity to the maximum degree possible. Laws that legitimize abortion, assisted suicide, and euthanasia are profoundly unjust and immoral. We support constitutional protection for unborn human life, as well as legislative efforts to end abortion and euthanasia. Faithful Citizenship’
Excerpt from United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
The SACRED CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE OF THE FAITH (Office of the Vatican) Excerpts from DECLARATION ON PROCURED ABORTION
1. The problem of procured abortion and of its possible legal liberalization has become more or less everywhere the subject of impassioned discussions. These debates would be less grave were it not a question of human life, a primordial value, which must be protected and promoted. …. The Church is too conscious of the fact that it belongs to her vocation to defend man against everything that could disintegrate or lessen his dignity to remain silent on such a topic. Because the Son of God became man, there is no man who is not His brother in humanity and who is not called to become a Christian in order to receive salvation from Him.
5. "Death was not God's doing, he takes no pleasure in the extinction of the living" (Wis. 1:13). Certainly God has created beings who have only one lifetime and physical death cannot be absent from the world of those with a bodily existence. But what is immediately willed is life, and in the visible universe everything has been made for man, who is the image of God and the world's crowning glory (cf. Gen. 1:26-28). On the human level, "it was the devil's envy that brought death into the world" (Wis. 2:24). Introduced by sin, death remains bound up with it: death is the sign and fruit of sin. But there is no final triumph for death. Confirming faith in the Resurrection, the Lord proclaims in the Gospel: "God is God, not of the dead, but of the living" (Mt. 22:32). And death like sin will be definitively defeated by resurrection in Christ (cf. 1 Cor. 15:20-27). Thus we understand that human life, even on this earth, is precious. Infused by the Creator, life is again taken back by Him (cf. Gen. 2:7; Wis. 15:11). It remains under His protection: man's blood cries out to Him (cf. Gen. 4:10) and He will demand an account of it, "for in the image of God man was made" (Gen. 9:5-6). The commandment of God is formal: "You shall not kill" (Ex. 20:13). Life is at the same time a gift and a responsibility. It is received as a "talent" (cf. Mt. 25:14-30); it must be put to proper use. In order that life may bring forth fruit, many tasks are offered to man in this world and he must not shirk them. More important still, the Christian knows that eternal life depends on what, with the grace of God, he does with his life on earth.
6. The tradition of the Church has always held that human life must be protected and favored from the beginning, just as at the various stages of its development.
8. Respect for human life is not just a Christian obligation. Human reason is sufficient to impose it on the basis of the analysis of what a human person is and should be. Constituted by a rational nature, man is a personal subject capable of reflecting on himself and of determining his acts and hence his own destiny: he is free. He is consequently master of himself; or rather, because this takes place in the course of time, he has the means of becoming so: this is his task. Created immediately by God, man's soul is spiritual and therefore immortal.
11. The first right of the human person is his life. He has other goods and some are more precious, but this one is fundamental - the condition of all the others. Hence it must be protected above all others. It does not belong to society, nor does it belong to public authority in any form to recognize this right for some and not for others: all discrimination is evil, whether it be founded on race, sex, color or religion. It is not recognition by another that constitutes this right. This right is antecedent to its recognition; it demands recognition and it is strictly unjust to refuse it.
14. Divine law and natural reason, therefore, exclude all right to the direct killing of an innocent man.
21. The role of law is not to record what is done, hut to help in promoting improvement. It is at all times the task of the State to preserve each person's rights and to protect the weakest. In order to do so the State will have to right many wrongs.
22. It must in any case be clearly understood that whatever may be laid down by civil law in this matter, man can never obey a law which is in itself immoral, and such is the case of a law which would admit in principle the liceity of abortion. Nor can he take part in a propaganda campaign in favor of such a law, or vote for it. Moreover, he may not collaborate in its application. It is, for instance, inadmissible that doctors or nurses should find themselves obliged to cooperate closely in abortions and have to choose between the law of God and their professional situation.
27……"I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full" (Jn. 10:10). But life at all its levels comes from God, and bodily life is for man the indispensable beginning. In this life on earth sin has introduced, multiplied and made harder to bear suffering and death. But in taking their burden upon Himself, Jesus Christ has transformed them: for whoever believes in Him, suffering and death itself become instruments of resurrection. Hence Saint Paul can say: "I think that what we suffer in this life can never be compared to the glory, as yet unrevealed, which is waiting for us" (Rom. 8:18).
