by compares Senator Kennedy with his sister Eunice, who also recently passed away: What the siblings shared – in addition to the grace, rare among Kennedys, of a ripe old age and a peaceful death – was a passionate liberalism and an abiding Roman Catholic faith. These 2 commitments were intertwined: Ted Kennedy’s tireless efforts […]

Quote of the Day 8-31-09

No rational person can reasonably be expected to take seriously Catholic opposition to abortion when a champion of the Culture of Death, who repeatedly betrayed the Faith of his baptism, is lauded and extolled by priests and prelates in a Marian basilica. ~ C. J. Doyle, executive director of the Catholic Action League of MA, […]

Ted Kennedy’s letter to the Pope

I watched Senator Ted Kennedy’s burial service at Arlington National Cemetery on t.v. last night and was saddened when hearing the contents of his letter to Pope Benedict XVI. Nowhere in his letter did Kennedy profess a belief that Jesus Christ died to give him the free gift of eternal life. Instead Kennedy’s letter read […]

Weekend question

I received this email: America is becoming very divided over abortion. Dialogue at message boards, etc., becomes very antagonistic and heated. I have always been fiercely pro-life, and I don’t hesitate in telling family members and friends who are pro-choice why their decision is WRONG….

The failure of this very modest amendment says a lot about the state of abortion politics in Britain.

The Left-wing establishment could not let it pass because it cannot tolerate the concept of any limit on access to abortion whatsoever. It proclaims that it wants abortion to be safe, legal and rare. But it regards abortion as a fundamental human right if not a positive assertion of a woman’s freedom to control her own destiny – and any attempt to constrict a human freedom is, obviously, a betrayal of that freedom in principle. In trumpeting the right of abortion over any wider concerns about, say, its effects upon society, gender relations or (Heaven forbid) the welfare of the unborn child itself, the establishment Left has made its position as plain and bold as possible.

Abortion in all circumstances and for whatever reason is a-okay.

It is often suggested that pro-lifers are religious fanatics who won’t give an inch, while pro-choicers are moderate humanists. The situation is far more contrary than such clichés suggest….

The Left-wing establishment does not approach abortion with the sober minds of liberal pragmatists balancing one set of rights against another, but as fundamentalists who can accept no opposing view. The abortion industry has become their Moloch, and they will give it whatever it demands.
