“Before I Formed you in the Womb, I knew you. “

Today is the 47nd anniversary of Roe Vs. Wade which legalized abortion. Today we remember the millions of lives lost to legal abortion in our country.

Think of the future generations that have been wiped out. There are literally millions of souls who were never given the chance to be a son, daughter, brother, sister, mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, or friend. Look at your children, grandchildren, spouse, or best friend, and ask yourself – what if they were aborted and never existed?

As Catholics, we believe that ALL human life is sacred and needs to be protected from conception to natural death. We care about pre-born and born children (at all stages), we care about women, men, families, the poor, the elderly, the orphans, the sick, the disabled, the weary, the immigrants, those who have been harmed by human trafficking . . .

ALL human life.

If abortion wasn’t the killing of a child, then why do we look away if we see a picture of an aborted baby? What’s the big deal if it’s just a clump of cells, and not human? We look away because we know we are looking into the window of the womb where a human life was once growing. We are looking Truth in the face, and the reality of what an abortion really is – the slaughter and killing of a human being.

Abortion turns the womb into a tomb.

The womb should be the most sacred and safest place on earth, but instead is the most dangerous.

According to Catholic teaching a faithful Catholic must not support abortion. The Catholic Church’s teaching on abortion, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church #2270, is:

“Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person – among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.”

The March for Life in Washington D.C. is this Friday, January 24th and will end at the Supreme Court steps. The United States is 1 of 6 countries allowing abortion after 20 weeks. China & North Korea are two of them. We are better than this.

Please continue to fight to end abortion. Please continue to fight to protect all life from conception to natural death. Keep praying. Keep marching. Keep supporting women who think they have no other option. Keep voting to protect life. Do not rest until this great human rights struggle of our time is overcome. Be Bold. Be Catholic. Fight the good fight and protect the innocent.

God bless all those who have lost their lives to abortion, those in danger of abortion, and for all post-abortive parents who have been so wounded by this terrible injustice.

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.” Jeremiah 1:5

If we don’t stand up for life, who will?

As a Catholic, when you say you are against abortion, but respect a woman’s right to choose to have one, think about what you are really saying. You are saying that you personally wouldn’t abort your own child, but it’s fine if someone else does. In other words, the life of the child really doesn’t matter to you. This is not being Catholic. If you are a Catholic, and not in name only, you are for all life – from conception to natural death. You certainly are free to believe other wise, but if you think abortion is okay, you are going against the church that Jesus Christ Himself founded – the Catholic Church. Abortion is not of God, thought the secular world is very good at convincing you otherwise.

We don’t get to pick and choose who lives and who dies. God is the author of all life. By being okay with abortion, this is exactly what you are doing. We are not God, as much as many in the world would like to think that we are. Science has proven that life begins at conception. Even atheist acknowledge this. When Jesus was in His mother’s womb, He was an embryo. Think about this and how valued the life inside the womb must be to God. God, being God, could have chosen a different way to come down from Heaven and dwell among us. But he didn’t. He could have come to us already full-grown, with no family. But He didn’t. Instead he chose to come to us through the womb of a woman, as a vulnerable baby. Pretty powerful example to the preciousness of life in the womb, of babies and of families.

Do not believe the lies the secular world tells you. Do not believe everything you hear on television, or read in the paper. There is a powerful agenda out there and they do not have your best interest at heart. God does. Many, many young women are vulnerable to these lies. Help them, protect them and encourage them to give life to their child. They need your support. They need your help. Don’t abandon them. Catholics need to step up to the plate, help the mothers, protect the little ones, and stop falling for the “It’s my body I can do with it what I want to” lies. With this logic, why don’t you go out and support women being prostitutes? It’s their body – why not? Go ahead and encourage drug use – it’s their body – shouldn’t they be able to use drugs and do whatever they want to with it? Abortion is big business and makes a lot of money for the abortionist and Planned Parenthood. You’ve been sold a huge lie, and by buying into it millions of children have been dismembered and destroyed. Dismembered. This is reality and the truth of abortion. Human children are being destroyed every day in our world, and yet we listen to the lies rather than God. Your children and grandchildren and great grandchildren will never exist because of a lie. We are all better than this.

Do the right thing and truly live your Catholic faith. If you don’t understand a hard teaching, pray for understanding and then read, study and find out why the Church that was Jesus Christ founded 2000 years ago teaches and believe what it does. These teachings aren’t mean or old-fashioned. They are of God, who has our best interest and our eternal souls at heart. Jesus founded our Church and left us the Holy Spirit to always guide us in truth. Know your faith and stand up for life. Be Bold. Be Catholic. Be good, holy, moral people. Stand up for truth. Stand up for life. If we don’t, who will?
