A pro-life activist banned from stepping on the grounds of St. Matthew’s Church in San Mateo after a controversy over his display of signs showing graphic pictures of aborted babies was arrested on Tuesday, Nov. 13, for trespassing on church grounds.I can understand people being upset over a pro-life activist being arrested by a Catholic priest over wanting to show (graphic pics) the reality of abortion. There are few things today more horrid than abortion, and few things nobler than the fight against it, but I have to ask one question.

Foti, a well-known pro-life activist, has long been controversial at St. Matthew’s. Parents of children at the parish school began complaining last year of Foti’s truck, displaying the graphic signs, which he parked on a public street adjacent to the school. Parents, who dropped their children off on the street for school, complained that their children had to view the graphic pictures.

Foti told the Nov. 14 Tribune he did not feel McGuire “had any valid grounds to ban me from the church. Right now, I am going to call my attorney and see what I can do and what I should do."
What would you do if a group fighting against legalized sodomy parks a van with graphic pictures next to your kindergartner's school?
Why couldn't the fella park a couple blocks away from the school and walk to Mass? Let's fight hard to save the children, but let's not forget to guard their innocence too.
What do you think?
