The Santa Sophia Community for Life meets the first Sunday of each month at 9:30 AM in the Church Conference Room.
Mission and purpose
We are an action-oriented group supporting initiatives that promote traditional marriage, parental notification, and an end to abortion and euthanasia (dignity of life). Members participate in “Life Chain” and “walk” events, as well as praying at abortion clinics for a change of heart. Over 100 babies are known to have been saved by these prayer efforts in 2008! We also fundraise and solicit donations to give Catholic Charities, East County Pregnancy Center, Birthline (in Chula Vista and Clairemont) and other ‘support life’ organizations.

I think the statement that bugs me most when talking to people about abortion is, “I’m against abortion, but…” I can actually respect someone’s total pro-abortion position more than someone who tells me, “I’m against abortion, but…” It just makes no sense to me at all; how can they be against something as vile and deadly as abortion and have a “but”?
My first response to them is always to ask them first why they are against abortion. What is it about abortion that would make you start your statement with “I’m against abortion”? It amazes me when they start telling me how killing a baby is so wrong, life is so precious and we should respect it, and babies are innocent and don’t deserve to die. It would seem they have a firm grasp on the pro-life perspective, but. There it is, that little three-letter word that destroys the very foundation of what they just explained to me
