Christian Groups Air Ad in Ryan's District

Several Christian organizations have banded together to fund a radio ad running in Cong. Paul Ryan's district. They do not only challenge the Ryan budget from the standpoint of traditional social justice: They point out that it is distinctly anti-life.
"The Catholic Church has always been clear on the sanctity of life at all stages. As a pro-life Catholic, Congressman Paul Ryan ought to know this," Father Thomas Kelly says in the ad. Father Kelly is a resident of Elkhorn, Wisconsin, in Rep. Ryan’s district. "But the budget he authored and Republicans in Congress recently passed abandons those pro-life principles by depriving vulnerable children, seniors and families of healthcare and economic support they need to put food on the table during hard times. When it comes to being pro-life, actions speak louder than words."
Bravo!
