Hearts of stone

...must be or else why keep insisting this is just a blob of tissue? An economic burden? An inconvenience? A woman's choice? (To which I ask, what choice exactly?)

A baby at 8 weeks. Just about the same stage as most of the women whom I see go into "abortion clinics" for a "procedure".

How do people who have to "count parts" in abortuaries to make sure that "it's all there" shut out the images?

48 million of these small, defenceless, voiceless babies. Dying at the altar of convenience, the Rite of Choice. Imagine this statement:
"The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do."
Oh, wait, I don't have to imagine it. It's on the record.

What FOCA will do:

This bill would effectively cancel every state, federal, and local regulation of abortion, no matter how modest or reasonable. It would even, according to the National Organization of Women, abolish all state restrictions on government funding for abortions. If Obama becomes president and lives up to this promise, then everyone who pays income tax will be paying an abortionist to perform an abortion. (source: David Feddoso).

Furthermore, said candidate promises:
* to abolish state laws that protect doctors and nurses from losing their jobs if they refuse to participate in abortions
* to abolish requirements for parental notification and informed consent for mothers who consider the procedure
I was speaking with a friend this weekend whose sister worked for an abortuary. My friend asked her what happens when one is delivered alive? Her sister said, "Oh, we just leave it on the counter to kick until it stops."

Still, I hear Catholics say there is a larger picture out there. The economy is more important. And, please, Argent, get real. This one-track mind is so tiresome. We've got to get the economy and universal health care in place.

Health care? So the justification for voting thus is health care. What an irony.

“When you are edging closer and closer to the abyss, the most progressive direction is backwards.”-Peter Kreeft, BACK TO VIRTUE.

But it is simply impossible to explain this to lemmings who are more concerned with counting money than with watching where they are going.

I'm reminded of what Peter Kreeft said in Catholic Christianity in the section on "Forgiveness of Sins"...we are all born selfish...choosing our own will over God's will.

What Blessed Mother Teresa said rings so true: It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.
