A Pro-Life Note On the Passing of Sargent Shriver

I noted several things about the passing of Sargent Shriver yesterday. First the age of people on social media.

One got a sense people of a certain age that were politically engaged thought they might need to tweet it or blog a quick post on it.

However for them he might have been from the Woodrow Wilson years because it seems so long ago when he was in the thick of things. How time passes.

Second I got to to thinking about Former Congresswoman, former Envoy to the Holy See Lindy Boggs from New Orleans. With Shriver passing she is all that is left from that era of powerful Catholic Democrats.

Finally Shriver , as well as his wife, were very pro-life. Catholic Vote has a nice piece on that at Requiescat in pace, Sargent Shriver.
