The teaching of the Roman Catholic Church on the subject of ‘Abortion” has been on the minds of many Catholics and non-Catholics, particularly over the past 35 years. Some find it abhorrent, as does Our Father in Heaven, and some say,”eh, whatever”.
The Church teaches that ‘life’ is precious from the moment of conception to the last breath. To do anything to end that life is wrong and a grave sin… “Thou shalt not kill” (Ex 20:13). The Church also teaches us that the practice of a homosexual life style is wrong. “For this cause, God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another: men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error… Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them” (Rom 1:26-27, 32).
Did you notice in that excerpt that the punishment for such behavior is death, and that it is wrong to consent to such behavior? This does not mean death in the flesh but the soul. The souls of those who practice or encourage homosexuality and those who perform or aid in abortions risk the very loss of their souls for all eternity.
We have a situation where many Catholics, practicing or not, voted for Barak Obama to be leader of this country. He has promised Planned Parenthood to sign into law FOCA and many other bills that will allow abortion on demand, taxpayer funding of abortions, no parental consent and the list goes on. My question here is: Are these Catholics and non-Catholics that voted for Obama partners in crime, ie; the murder of innocent babies… unborn American citizens?
The nightmare has only begun and there is going to be such an outcry because our rights as Catholics (and other faiths), as citizens of the United States are going be systematically taken away. There will be a “gag order” imposed on us. We won’t be able to teach or preach the truth about abortion and homosexuality in our churches, parochial schools, or in our own homes. It will be considered a hate crime. Those who have the courage to continue to teach this wrong from right will be sent to jail. Jails are already over-crowded. Where are they going to house them? How will they be treated? The record will show they are guilty of hate crimes.
We can’t allow this to happen. But I fear it just may come to that. I hope and pray we will have the courage to stand up and defend our faith no matter what the cost. I hope and pray the Holy Father will rise up and declare a Holy War against those who would try to take away our freedom to teach our children what is right in the eyes of God. I don’t want the government to tell me what I can think, say or pray. Vendors of porn are time and again crying out “freedom of speech” in order to sell their filthy wares. Why should we be stifled when speaking the truth? Are we to become a nation of lies? We shall see!

Planned Parenthood Annual Report: Abortion Totals, Government Funding Increase
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has released its annual report for fiscal year 2007-2008. The document shows the nation’s largest abortion business is getting bigger as it showed an increase of five percent more abortions and increased taxpayer funding. According to Planned Parenthood’s latest report, abortions increased to 305,310 abortions up from 289,750 in 2006. That 5.3 percent increase came at a time when the Alan Guttmacher Institute, it’s former research arm, showed abortions were at near-historic lows. Thus, while abortions were on the decline in the United States, and while Planned Parenthood sought to distance itself from its abortion business, Planned Parenthood did more abortions than it has done in years. The annual report showed more government funding heading to the abortion business even if the taxpayer funds did not directly pay for abortions. The total government grants and contracts received by PPFA affiliates from government sources including state, local and federal governments, increased from $337 million to $350 million.
