A Rose By Any Other Name ...

Catholic hospitals commit - and U.S. bishops condone - live-birth abortion

The news was a real bummer. A reporter named Tom Szyszkiewicz, who writes for the Catholic publications, Our Sunday Visitor and the National Catholic Register, was calling to tell me he had discovered two Catholic hospital systems were committing the induced-labor abortion procedure - live-birth abortion - on handicapped babies.

The bad news warped to bizarre when Szyszkiewicz said these hospitals were waiting until babies were 23 to 26 weeks gestation before aborting them - i.e., until they were of viable age - so they could say these weren't abortions at all, but simply labor inductions and, thus, sanctioned by the Catholic Church

We're against abortion so let's wait till the baby is viable, induce labor, and cast it aside to die in hospital soiled utility rooms, or drowned in buckets of water, or sealed to suffocate in biohazard bags. I'd like to have been a fly on the wall when they were reasoning that out!

They have become fat, they shine. Yes, they go past the deeds of the wicked; they do not judge the cause, the cause of the fatherless, that they may get rich; and they do not judge the right of the needy.

Shall I not visit for these things, declares Jehovah? Shall not My soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

An astounding and horrible thing has happened in the land.

The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so, and what will you do at the end of it?

Jerimiah 5:28-31

New mp3: Should you be worried about the anger of God? Just what does He have to be angry about anyway? You haven't done anything wrong, why should you be worried? The link works now.
