    We do NOT have the right to judge. Only God can do that.
    We should show compassion. A husband lost his wife and daughter. A Mother and Father lost their daughter. Brothers and Sisters lost their Sister. Instead of judging, we should pray instead.

    Morbelli and McKenna families -You do not know me, but I prayed for Jennifer and her baby today at Mass. I offered up my Mass and Communion for Jennifer, her baby, the husband, family, and loved ones. May Jennifer and Madison Leigh rest in peace. May God Bless the hurting family! I will remember Jennifer, her husband, and baby in my daily rosary!

    Why did Mrs. Morbelli go to Carhart in the first place? Did she not go there to murder her baby? Abortion is murder. If there was a sound medical reason for terminating her pregnancy, a reputable OB/GYN doctor could have done it in a hospital. She went there to kill her baby and her life was taken as a result. Had she delivered her baby then killed it, she would have been charged with murder.
