Thomas Peters is a leading pro-life blogger and activist with Catholic Vote and is well known on Twitter for his pro-life advocacy. Today, the pro-life word is learning that he has been critically injured.

From CatholicVote:

The entire team here at CatholicVote asks that you to pray for our dear friend, Thomas Peters.

Thomas was involved in an accident yesterday evening and has sustained major injuries. He is awake, responsive, and in stable but critical condition. Family and friends are with him.

Out of respect for Thomas and his family, we will share additional information as is appropriate.

Please keep his recovery in your prayers.

Edward Peters, Thomas Peters’ father and a Catholic canon lawyer, added the following:

Thomas Peters was seriously hurt in a swimming accident Tuesday evening. He has a fractured vertebra in his neck. His wife and mother are with him as he is undergoing tests. Prayers are requested.

Thom can move his arms, docs are discussing the best treatment for his neck injury. Immediate concern is for the considerable water in his lungs. We are astounded at the expressions of prayers and support. Thom & Nat know about it. Please keep them up. Love from us all, EdP.
