Prove that two parabolas intersect orthogonally

Consider two parabolas which have the same focus and the same line as axis, and let these two parabolas have vertices lying on opposite sides of the focus. Prove that the parabolas intersect orthogonally (i.e., their tangent lines are perpendicular at the point of intersection).
