(LifeSiteNews) – Democrats are projected to keep their majority in the Senate after holding key seats in Nevada and Arizona.
With 98 percent of the vote counted, Nevada Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Mastro leads Republican challenger Adam Laxalt by nearly 7,000 votes. Laxalt initially led Cortez Mastro by a large margin, but mail ballots counted since Election Day broke decisively for the Democrat. The remaining votes are mostly mail ballots.
In Arizona, Republican Blake Masters trails Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly by five percentage points and more than 100,000 votes with 93 percent of ballots counted.
Neither Laxalt and Masters have conceded. Master said Saturday that “we are going to make sure that every legal vote is counted.”
“If, at the end, Senator Kelly has more of them than I do, then I will congratulate him on a hard-fought victory. But voters decide, not the media,” he added.
Laxalt is expected to ask for a recount.
Pro-life priest and Red Rose Rescuer Fr. Fidelis Moscinski has been found guilty of violating the Freedom to Access Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.
Yesterday Fr. Fidelis was convicted of the federal crime for a July 2022 “lock and block” rescue he conducted at a Planned Parenthood in Hempstead, New York. The priest is scheduled to be sentenced on April 24 and faces up to six months in federal prison.
Sign the petition to let Fr. Fidelis know you support him and are praying for him.
A Pennsylvania court issued a split ruling against a pro-life Franciscan priest and activist arrested after he entered an abortion clinic to help women choose life.
Father Christopher “Fidelis” Moscinski was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges and not guilty of a felony trespass and a misdemeanor resist, for participating in a Red Rose Rescue at a Planned Parenthood.
Fr. Moscinski entered the clinic on August 27, 2021 with red roses and pro-life literature ready to hand out to women and persuading them to choose life for their children.
Fr. Fidelis has participated in many Red Rose Rescues at abortion centers, and for this has been imprisoned multiple times.
He was also previously arrested for trying to save babies in Ohio in June 2021 and in New Jersey in January 2020.
After the court decision, Fr. Fidelis urged people to “continue keeping all pro-lifers anywhere who are facing charges, especially federal charges, in your prayers, and that God can bring some good out of this unjust persecution.”
Sign this petition today to let Fr. Fidelis know you stand with him and his heroic fight to save unborn lives from abortion.
Fellow pro-life activist and Red Rose Rescuer Will Goodman told LifeSite’s Jim Hale that the court’s ruling to drop one felony and reject another was a “big victory.”But the crackdown on pro-lifers continues!
Just recently the Biden administration targeted Fr. Fidelis and other pro-life activists for Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) violation charges.
This same law was also used by the FBI to raid the home of pro-life Catholic dad Mark Houck last month.
It’s really a disgrace that in America pro-lifers are increasingly being attacked and persecuted simply because they stand for life.
Fr. Fidelis Moscinski needs your prayers and support now more than ever as he continues to fearlessly battle for the unborn.
SIGN THIS PETITION TODAY to tell Fr. Fidelis you stand with him and his courageous fight!
Republicans have criticized the slow, multi-day vote count in both Nevada and Arizona and raised concerns about election integrity. The largest county in Arizona reported “issues” with vote tabulation machines on Election Day.
As of Monday morning, the Arizona governor’s race remains uncalled, with more than 160,000 ballots uncounted. Democrat Katie Hobbs, Arizona’s current secretary of state, who oversaw the election process, leads Republican Kari Lake by around 25,000 votes. In Nevada, the Republican candidate for governor, Joe Lombardo, defeated Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak.
Control of the Senate allows Democrats to continue rubber-stamping Joe Biden’s radical appointments to the executive branch and the federal judiciary, including the Supreme Court.
Republicans are poised to regain control of the House, however, which would allow them to block Biden’s legislative agenda and conduct investigations into his administration.
