On the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision, our President issued this statement:
"As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman's health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters."
"I remain committed to protecting a woman's right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right."
We know that "abortion" is just another word for killing. The taking of a human life in the womb. So, there is no "protection" in the act of abortion. And the killing of a human being is never private. What is the right to choose? Why doesn't the president tell us what the choice is...to kill, or not to kill.
The Catholic Church will not tell us WHO to vote for. The Church says that a good candidate respects the dignity of the human person. And we should all know who that candidate is before we vote. If we do not vote for the candidate who vows to protect human life, from conception to natural death, we may very well fall out of the state of grace. Let us pray that we all make the right decision in the voting booth.
