The celebratory abortion culture in which we live requires that we educate ourselves and others of the detrimental ramifications of abortion.
Because of her abortion, she had given up—on lots of things. On heaven, on living the Catholic life, on the pursuit of holiness, on the fact that God truly loves her.
The prospect of selective abortion is truly horrifying. I share this story now, having heard it from my mother over the years, for I am that “little baby.” My life could have been terminated if those advocating selective abortion had their way.
There’s lots of confusion about immigration and voting among Catholics and other Christians. How big of a factor is immigration among our voting concerns? Does it equate morally to abortion? And, is President Trump’s wall building project something we can or cannot support? Is it a negotiable policy for Catholics or not?
Voting as a Catholic means supporting political candidates who best harmonize with the teaching of the Church on faith and morals. That means voting consistently pro-life in opposition to the intrinsic evil of abortion. Candidates who support abortion cannot normally receive our support. As an intrinsic evil, abortion is a non-negotiable. As Pope St. John Paul II noted, the right to life must be “defended with maximum determination.”
