 NOVEMBER, 2014 BALLOT QUESTION ON ABORTION

In November, Amendment 1 will state: Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion. The people retain the right through their elected state representatives and state senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother.  Because of a radical 4 to 1 ruling by the Tennessee Supreme Court in 2000, TN now boasts a broader right to abortion than that recognized by Roe v. Wade or the U.S. Constitution.  In 2008, 23.7% of abortions were sought by women residing out-of-state. "YES on 1" is a non-profit pro-life group that is helping to spread the word and educate TN residents about this important ballot measure.  Please see this site for more information.  www.yeson1tn.org    VOTE YES on Amendment One! 


 PULPIT ANNOUNCEMENTS 

In an effort to improve and streamline parish communication, we will no longer be having announcements from the pulpit. If you would like to publicize events or information, please direct bulletin notice requests to Lupe at lupe@sthomaslc.com and for website requests, please email the webmaster at webmaster@sthomaslc.com

If you would like to make an announcement regarding a parish activity, please email the webmaster at webmaster@sthomaslc.com.
