Cardinal Closes DNC with Prayer for Unborn

Ad Feedback

Catholic Archbishop of New York Timothy Dolan closed out the Democratic National Convention with prayer last night, stressing the right to life for the unborn.

Dolan is a prominent opponent of abortion and same-sex marriage.

"Thus do we praise you for the gift of life," Dolan prayed. "Grant us to defend it. Life, without which no other rights are secure."

"We ask your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected," he prayed.

At first, Democrats had declined his offer to pray at their convention. They reversed the decision a few days later.

The Obama administration has alienated many Catholic voters during the fight over the health care mandate. The Catholic vote could be critical this election year.

Cardinal Dolan also prayed at the Republican National Convention.
