WASHINGTON, D.C., January 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Republican congressional minority leaders Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy will be joining incoming Democrat President Joe Biden and their Democrat counterparts Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi for a Catholic Mass, despite Biden’s (and Pelosi’s) longstanding rejection of key Catholic teachings. While McConnell and McCarthy are Baptists, Schumer is Jewish.
All four leaders have accepted invitations to join Biden at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington, D.C., The Hill reports, ahead of Biden’s inauguration as the 46th President of the United States. Outgoing President Donald Trump, who for the past two months has forcefully disputed the outcome of the presidential election over reports of election fraud, will be the first president in 150 years not to attend his successor’s inauguration.
Much has been made in the press of Biden being only the second “Catholic” president in U.S. history, after John F. Kennedy, despite Biden’s support for various positions at odds with Catholic principles, including effectively-unlimited abortion at taxpayer expense and comprehensive recognition and accomodation of homosexuality and gender fluidity at the expense of religious or conscience rights.
Biden told America Magazine in 2015 that he was “prepared to accept as a matter of faith” that “at the moment of conception there’s human life and being,” but wasn’t prepared to “impose” a “rigid” or “precise” view on abortion that was “born out of my faith” (ignoring that science is equally conclusive on when life begins).
States are blocking pro-lifers from sharing the simple message “Choose Life” on their vehicles!
Please SIGN this joint petition between LifeSite and The Children First Foundation to make "Choose Life" license plates available in every state! Tell governors and state officials to allow this pro-life freedom of speech.
Advertising industry statistics show that, for the typical vehicle, a “Choose Life” plate and its simple, powerful message will be seen by other drivers 30,000 to 80,000 times a year.
And, across the U.S., “Choose Life” vehicle license plates (or tags) have raised more than $28 million for pro-life pregnancy centers, maternity homes, safe havens, and adoption centers, varying with each state.
The potential for expanding the “Choose Life” license plate program to new states and new members is incredible – but only if citizens are allowed to have the plates!
It is appalling that seventeen U.S. states do not allow their citizens the right to put “Choose Life” license plates on their vehicles.
The plates have been called pro-life “scare tactics” by Planned Parenthood and unlawful or hateful “private speech” by pro-abortion lawyers. The “Choose Life” message, however, is one of pure love that scares nobody except those who profit from death.
It is unacceptable that we are blocked from our God-given and Constitutional right to spread the message of love and life for vulnerable unborn and newborn children.
Your signature on this petition – no matter where you live – will help to get the “Choose Life” license plate program in states where it is not yet permitted!
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to make a real difference in persuading these state governments and Departments of Motor Vehicles to “Choose Life.”
Consider, for example, our experience in New York, where Governor Andrew Cuomo is a nationally-recognized advocate of abortion and has been a relentless opponent of the pro-life movement.
Cuomo has blocked the approval of “Choose Life” license plates in NY, despite widespread support for these truly positive messages of love and life. A headline in the New York Post declared, “The DMV Acts Like We Live in Pyongyang.”
And, in nearby New Jersey and Connecticut, similar hurdles were faced.
But we took the fight to the government officials and even to federal court. And, with the help of petitions, we were able to get “Choose Life” license plates on the road in both states.
It is high time for us to convert EVERY state in America to choose life.
Your signature on this petition - no matter where you live - will help make that happen by placing “Choose Life” license plates on tens of thousands more cars.
For love, for life, for the babies, please SIGN and SHARE our worldwide petition to tell state officials and politicians to stop blocking approval of the “Choose Life” license plate!

Several Catholic leaders, including Archbishop Samuel Aquila of Denver and former Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, have argued that Catholic leaders who administer Holy Communion to Biden are committing a grave error.
“By his actions during the course of his public life, Mr. Biden has demonstrated that he is not in full communion with the Catholic Church,” Chaput wrote in December. “To his credit, he has championed many causes and issues that do serve the common good. However, many of his actions and words have also supported or smoothed the way for grave moral evils in our public life that have resulted in the destruction of millions of innocent lives.”
