Today, we are in a battle against a culture of death, wherein unborn babies, ill people, disabled people, elderly people, and those who get in the way of convenience are considered expendable. However, in the Bible we read, "And He said, “Let us make man to our image and likeness…” Genesis 1:26. “Before I formed thee in the bowels of thy mother, I knew thee: and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee, and made thee a prophet unto the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5. The Catechism of the Catholic Church says: “It was also for this reason that God instituted marriage from the beginning; and therefore married persons who, to prevent conception or procure abortion, have recourse to medicine, are guilty of a most heinous crime – nothing less than wicked conspiracy to commit murder” (Council of Trent). “There are, however, two cases in which guilt attaches (to accidental death). The first case is when death results from an unlawful act; when, for instance, a person kicks or strikes a woman in a state of pregnancy, and abortion follows. The consequence, it is true, may not have been intended, but this does not exculpate the offender, because the act of striking a pregnant woman is in itself unlawful. The other case is when death is caused by negligence, carelessness or want of due precaution” (Council of Trent). “It also forbids suicide. No man possesses such power over his own life as to be at liberty to put himself to death. Hence we find that the Commandment does not say: Thou shalt not kill another, but simply: Thou shalt not kill” (Council of Trent). “Finally, if we consider the numerous means by which murder may be committed, the law admits of no exception. Not only does it forbid to take away the life of another by laying violent hands on him, by means of a sword, a stone, a stick, a halter, or by administering poison; but also strictly prohibits the accomplishment of the death of another by counsel, assistance, help or any other means whatever” (Council of Trent). We are all children of our Father in heaven. Why then, would we believe it is okay to kill other human beings when they seem inconvenient or worthless or a bother to us? We are either Catholic, or we are not, and our focus is not to coldly debate whether there are any (selfish) pros to abortion, but to fast/do penance and pray for the unborn babies and their mothers in danger of abortion and those in danger of euthanasia and to oppose the demonic in the abortion and euthanasia industries.
