Abortion is top life issue - Catholic Courier

Abortion is top life issue

To the editor:

“The magisteruim of the Church teaches that all life is sacred from the moment of conception to natural death”, the writer wrote in “‘Spare fervor’ for other issues”. What other fervor is needed when all life itself is sacred.

When you look at the abortion mentality, many problems stem from this origin. All the problems that were mentioned: Unjust war — did the unborn child do something wrong for the doctor to declare war in the womb with the scalpel? Homelessness — an empty womb; one wounded, and probably more. Poverty — a mother with a broken heart. Racism — 1,452 African Americans unborn babies killed a day. Torture — what could be worse than arms and legs ripped apart from the unborn child’s body and its head decapitated.

I wouldn’t say we don’t care about the other “issues of life.” We are just defending a segment of people who deserve the protection of the right to life.

Please, Mr. DiFulio, even the Catholic bishops admitted at one of their conferences that all the other issues don’t matter if we don’t consider that life itself is enough. This is at the heart of being Catholic.
