We are now just a few months past the overturning of Roe, turning the direct killing of a child in the womb, back to each individual state. The Catholic Church has been in the forefront in their pro-life stance. For that stance the Church has seen brutal attacks on pro-life centers, vandalism and defacing of many Catholic Churches. The onslaught of the cancel culture continues to demand that an innocent child in the womb of life, can be deliberately murdered, canceled, right up unto birth, for any reason. For two thousand years the Church has spoken out about the intrinsic evil of abortion. (Which means this act of murder is always evil). Catholic Principles of Morality- “Any direct attempt on an innocent life as a means to an end is unlawful.” Pius XII
“Every human being, in the mother’s womb has a right to life…hence there is no man, no science, no medical, eugenic, social, economic, or moral indication that can produce a valid judicial title to a direct disposal of an innocent life.”
“You shall not kill by abortion the fruit of the womb and you shall not murder the infant already born.” —Apostles 90 A.D.
“To prevent birth is anticipated murder. It makes no little difference whether one destroys life already born, or does away with it in its nascent (growing) state, the one who will be a man is already one.” —Tertillian A.D. 150-240
“But the man or woman is a murderer…who takes medicine to procure an abortion.” —St. Basil A. D. 374
“Some…with child, use drugs to procure abortion…laden with guilt of adultery against Christ, and child murder.” —Saint Jerome.
“Why then do you abuse the gift of God…and make the chamber of procreation a chamber for murder.” —St John Chrysostom A.D. 391
Let us all continue to pray for all life, for all life is so sacred, and all life matters. The Catholic Church continues to spread the message of truth. Continue to have that moral courage to stand up for the rights of the unborn, and say no to any perceived law that deliberately kills an innocent child in the womb, the womb of life.
