“What can I do? I am only one person!”
So often you hear these words as an excuse to do nothing. Michigan Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak has proven the power of one. As a Catholic he has firmly opposed the inclusion of public funding for abortions in the health care legislation taking shape on Capitol Hill. His amendment to do just that is part of the House version of the health care package. He is unapologetic about his position being based on his Catholic Faith. Scorned by his pro-choice colleagues, as the New York Times stated , “ He wears scorn as a medal”.
A true Catholic Hero who has the courage of his convictions and has shown the power of one.
