The Five Most Pathetic Words A Catholic can Utter . . .

I am a Pro-Choice Catholic

Follow the above link to read Patrick Madrid's response to Kate Child Graham's article.

Again Pat hits exactly the point when he says:

It’s not necessary to explain here what St. Thomas actually said about man’s duty to follow his conscience in observing the commandments and teachings of the Church, as that would simply be piling on and would be a further cause of embarrassment for Ms. Childs Graham. So it will suffice to simply read the above statements from the Catechism about conscience in light of this other statement:

“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law: ‘You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.’ ‘God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes’” (CCC 2271).

I am praying that some day (and I hope it is soon) she comes to see the truth of what her church really teaches and believes about the dignity and sanctity of all human life and will again believe that abortion is evil and goes back to working to make it unnecessary.

Thanks, angelmeg..I managed to link this onto my a different way, but its on there! Thanks for your help in teaching me how to do some of that. This is horrible by the way and sometimes, to be honest, I would not entirely be surprised if this person was never entirely pro-life to begin with and sometimes posing that she is. Still, that doesn't matter, for in the long run..huge prayers are needed!
