A Message for Pro-Choicers

This message is primarily for those who are pro-choice but would never abort themselves.

A person who does evil to his neighbor is not the only one guilty under the commandment to not murder. It also applies to anyone who can do his neighbor good, prevent or resist evil, defend and save his neighbor so that no bodily harm or hurt happen to him-yet does not do this (Jms 2:15-16). If, therefore, you send away someone who is naked when you could clothe him, you have caused him to freeze to death. If you see someone suffer hunger and do not give him food, you have caused him to starve. So also, if you see anyone innocently sentenced to death or in similar distress, and do not save him, although you know ways and means to do so, you have killed. It will not work for you to make the excuse that you did not provide any help, counsel, or aid to harm him. For you have withheld your love from him and deprived him of the benefit by which his life would have been saved. (LC 189,90)

God will rightfully call you murderers for withholding your love from young children who could not save themselves from the selfish choices of their mothers. The defense of 'women's rights' is no excuse because no person's right of choice should interfere with anothers right to live. Life is precious because it is a gift of God. While it may not always be an easy gift to bear, it is still one that should be treasured. God treasures the gift he gave us so much he was willing to die in order that it may be restored to us. Moreover, Christ arose so that we may have life and therein is our hope, for in the end we are all murderers in our own right.
