OC CATHOLIC RADIO: A BIBLICAL BACKGROUND FOR PRO-LIFE (NO ON PROP 1)

The following podcast is a very timely edition of Orange County Catholic Radio, featuring host Rick Howick. As most of you are probably aware, there is a proposition on the California ballot that will very soon come up for a vote (Proposition 1). We’re going to take a close look at this proposition; and, the implications that it has on both the state of California and all over the U.S. Since Rick holds multiple degrees and is very much a Biblical scholar and expert on church history, he’s going to take us on a deep dive into God’s Word, dating back to the Old Testament. His conclusions will offer a solid, biblical background that is unabashedly pro-life.

This podcast has already generated a lot of conversation since it first aired on the radio a short time ago. Be sure to SHARE this podcast with someone you know. Let’s make it “go viral!”
