Dear pro-abortion politicians: when you say ‘abortion,’ is this what you mean?
I am calling upon all of us to challenge candidates and voters of every party to bring the tragedy of abortion to the center of their election decisions. The teachings of the Holy Father and of the bishops constantly point out that not all moral and life issues are equal. “Abortion necessarily plays a central role,” the bishops state (A Campaign In Support of Life, 2001).
Yet it is not because the bishops teach it that we declare the centrality of abortion. It’s simply because of what it is. It is not looking at a Church document that convinces us of the urgency of ending abortion. It’s simply looking at abortion.
Yet that is exactly what so many of its supporters do not want to do.
How many of them will admit what abortion is? None!
How many will quote from abortionist Warren Hern’s medical textbook Abortion Practice which describes the procedure as “dismemberment” and “decapitation”? None!
How many will dare read from the testimonies of abortionists in court, in which they describe how the arms and legs of the baby are ripped off and the head removed in pieces? None!
