Choice . . . . Yeah, Right

  /   Saturday August 10, 2002  

As much trouble as I often have doing this, I believe we should presume good will in people until demonstrated otherwise. I know I want the same treatment. Read the excellent book from Fr. Lawrence Lovasik, The Hidden Power of Kindness.

With that being said, it would be foolhardy to presume good will with people like NARAL, NOW, and Planned Parenthood. When “pro-choice” groups oppose every measure to help make the choice a free, informed choice, it’s a bit hard to believe that they are pro-any choice but abortion. This is why I use the term “pro-abortion.”

NARAL has even gone on record opposing the newly signed Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. This is scary, to say the least. The last thing we need in our society is to relegate personhood only to those who are “wanted.” After all, who is it who’ll get to decide who is truly “wanted.”

As a pro-life Catholic, I oppose abortion for any reason. It is morally indefensible. Here’s a thought for you . . . . if a baby is born prematurely the child will be given needed medical care to attempt to save him/her. However, a child of the same gestational age can be killed inside the womb by partial-birth abortion. What occurs upon exiting the womb that makes the child a person if he/she wasn’t before?

Here’s another thought . . . . I saw something in a book that said that a mother calls an unborn child a “baby” if she wants a child, and a “fetus” if she doesn’t. Well, how true this is, despite the fact that “fetus” is Latin for “unborn child”!! How many expectant mothers will say to you “My fetus is kicking.”?
