Whispers has blogged about another important US landmark in the matter of life that has gotten little national press: the Catholic governor of New Mexico has just signed a bill outlawing the death penalty. With a Basilian friar at his side.

AA the governor put it " you can get an innocent person out of jail but not out of the grave."

This is a good thing, not a "liberal" thing, folks. It is a victory for life.

If we are truly pro-life, truly Catholic in our heart and mind, we should be rejoicing and considering how to build upon this small victory to foster discussion and further conversion about the sacred nature of all human life.
