Abortion - De Profundis - Out of The Depths I Cry Unto You, O Lord!

2011 IHSA Track Champions of Leo High School and an elected official.

Imagine if these kids were choiced out of existence.

This is a sculpture by artist Martin Hudáčeka”

De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine;
Domine, exaudi vocem meam. Fiant aures tuæ intendentes
in vocem deprecationis meæ.
Si iniquitates observaveris, Domine, Domine, quis sustinebit?
Quia apud te propitiatio est; et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Domine.
Sustinuit anima mea in verbo ejus:
Speravit anima mea in Domino.
A custodia matutina usque ad noctem, speret Israël in Domino.
Quia apud Dominum misericordia, et copiosa apud eum redemptio.
Et ipse redimet Israël ex omnibus iniquitatibus ejus.

Out of the depths, I have cried out to you, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.
If you, Lord, were to mark iniquities, who, O Lord, shall stand?
For with you is forgiveness; and because of your law, I stood by you, Lord.
My soul has stood by his word.
My soul has hoped in the Lord.
From the morning watch, even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
For with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

I am taking four Leo Men to Harry Caray's for lunch with Attorney, Fox Television Legal Analyst and Leo Board Member Tamara Holder.

Masters Williams and Calhoun are freshmen and bigger than Maytag refrigerators; Masters Harris and Hampton are sophomores and lithe of frame - each Man Jack of them is a scholar/athete. Mr. Harris will be a fine sports journalist in five years and is a frequent contributer to the Leo High School Oriole News site -

Not one of these gents have every dined north of 63rd Street, let alone on the Near North Side. Since September, Leo President Dan McGrath and I have been taking two, three or four of our men out on town -they are the best marketing gift this school could dream to possess. Whether with journalists, big shots, donors, Alumni, or waitressess Leo Men never let this school down. Guys with GPAs that reflect my own past performance as a young swine . . . . swain, as well as world beating over achievers go to lunch.

Leo High School is a Roman Catholic high school. The Roman Catholic Church is the only institutional faith to oppose abortion and as such is under attack by the media and government at all levels. Though most Leo guys are not Roman Catholic, all respect the foundation in core values that begin with conception. Life leads to Leo and Leo flourishes because of the gents we take to lunch.

These are young men from low income neighborhhoods. They are the babies Planned Parenthood wants dead - as a matter of Choice. Their Moms and Dads heroically shoved such criminal but legal idiocy away.

I can not imagine this great school without the contributions of any one of our guys.

Abortion is the wrong turn America took in 1971. Abortion can not be called back.
