There’s a new campaign, Abortion in Good Faith, promoting the killing of unborn children for the sake of “justice,”
“The ban on public funding is the single most detrimental policy to women’s access to abortion in the US,” said Jon O’Brien, president of Catholics for Choice. “We are tired of this grave injustice and our campaign lifts up the voices of Catholics who want this policy to change.”
The Catholics For Choice campaign calls for the end of restrictions on public funding of abortion, since those restrictions are “unjust,” and for ending the Hyde Amendment prohibiting federal funding for Medicaid coverage of abortion services.
Ed Morrissey does an excellent job of destroying each of the Abortion in Good Faith arguments, and includes the following,
The teachings on abortion within the universal Christian church go all the way back to its very first years. The Didache dates back to 70 AD, and is considered the first catechism or instruction on the faith. It’s the starting point for what Catholics call the magisterium after the canonical New Testament letters, from the Apostles themselves, and its position on abortion could not have been more clear:
And the second commandment of the Teaching; You shall not commit murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not commit pederasty, you shall not commit fornication, you shall not steal, you shall not practice magic, you shall not practice witchcraft, you shall not murder a child by abortion nor kill that which is begotten.
St. Basil of Caesarea addressed the issue a little over a century later:
Ed also points the Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 2270-75, which start with (emphasis added),
2270 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.(71)
It is spelled out clearly and unambiguously, again,
Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception.
Pro-abortion Democrats like the Catholics for Choice, Nancy Pelosi ,and Tim Kaine call themselves Catholic but ignore the Church’s doctrine on abortion, a doctrine dating back to the origins of the Church, either out of convenience, political expedience, willful ignorance, or moral obfuscation (or a combination of all) to promote the Hillary agenda and their party’s culture of death.
Naming their latest propaganda “Abortion in Good Faith” is a slap on the face, as the campaign aims for nothing “good” and certainly lacks “faith.”
