JP Catholic Students Challenge the Culture of Death
Via Michael Barber: JP Catholic students are all over two big propositions in California–and now the mainstream news media is taking notice of their efforts.

Right now, a high school can’t give an aspirin to a student without notifying parents–but a child can get an abortion and the parents don’t have to know a thing about it.

Yes, we already voted on this a few years ago and such a definition won a majority of the vote (61%). But the California Supreme Court ruled (4-3) that the vote didn’t matter and legalized gay marriage despite the vote. The students have been making ads for that as well.
Their ads have become an Internet sensation–the LA Times even reported their efforts in a recent story. Last night the local Fox affiliate ran a story on them. (For details, see the video and comments on Michael Barber’s blog.)
