Clearly, we need more than one Sunday to stress Respect for Life, if the following is any indication of the mindset today . . .
A woman in Italy discovered that she was carrying twins and decided to abort the one twin that had Down Syndrome. The twins shifted position and the "healthy" twin was aborted instead. To make matters worse, the woman and her husband returned to the hospital to have the twin with Down Syndrome aborted.
Everyone's devastated; their lives are ruined; the hospital says it was a "misfortune" and a terrible fatality. Why? Because the "wrong" twin was aborted?
Each and every time a child is aborted, it is a terrible fatality!
Then, I read in the National Catholic Register that the UK has "approved in principle" creating a human/animal hybrid embryo. Yes, that's right. They want to clean out an unfertilized cow egg (or other animals as well) and insert human skin cells. Then, after electrically stimulating it to grow, they can use the stem cells and then kill the embryo. The embryo, mind you, contains human, genetic material.
I encourage you to pay attention to what is going on. Now is not the time to remain silent.
