“And because the homicides involved in abortion are ”little murders” – the kind of private, legally protected murders that kill conveniently unseen lives – it’s easy to look the other way.”
“Cardinal Francis George said recently, too many Americans have ”no recognition of the fact that children continue to be killed [by abortion], and we live therefore, in a country drenched in blood. This can’t be something you start playing off pragmatically against other issues.”
Archbishop Charles Chaput
From the Lioness:
I reached into my pocket and found the small plastic fetus I use to interject reality into the conversation on Life vs. abortion in a time in which we have to show people the cost of abstracted arguments hiding behind “privacy” and “choice”. Read here what “choice” actually means.
“We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue, and it’s never an end in itself. In fact, tolerating grave evil within a society is itself a form of evil.” Archbishop Charles Chaput
Here is a photograph I took of a tree struck by lightening. I call it, “Nature cries out!” I see in it a recognizable image.
Can you see it? Let me know what you see.
As Presidents’ Day bids us remember our nation’s presidents and the legacy they left to our country, we would do well to pray for President Barack Obama. The legacy of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” rests first and foremost on the God-given gift of Life. No life: no liberty and no pursuit of happiness!
If President Obama’s promises to Planned Parenthood to sign FOCA (in whatever form it finally emerges) are realized in law, this president’s legacy will be written in the deaths of countless more unborn Americans.
