It's Christian to Kill!

Judie BrownThe travesty and sorrow that stems from the murder of preborn babies is something every Catholic should feel. To know that a child's life is snuffed out at the hands of a cruel abortionist is a sickening thought. What is even more sickening is that one of these cruel abortionists is employed by a Catholic hospital-a hospital that is protecting his job. Read today's commentary for more about this appalling story.

Cardinal Burke: Suffering does not rid life of purpose

EWTN       

At a Kansas City conference on end-of-life care, Cardinal Raymond Burke said that suffering does not cause a person to have less meaning in his life, nor does it give the government the right to decide if that person should live or die. "No matter how much a life is diminished, no matter what suffering the person is undergoing, that life demands the greatest respect and care," Cardinal Burke, prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, told CNA. "It's never right to snuff out a life because it's in some way under heavy burden."

After a Catholic hospital in Colorado refused to remove a Planned Parenthood abortionist from its ob/gyn staff, pro-life advocates have organized a protest, featuring Live Action President Lila Rose, on Aug. 4. "The reason I perform abortions is because I'm a Christian," Richard Grossman, a Quaker, told the Durango Herald after a similar protest outside Mercy Regional Medical Center last year.  "Personally, I believe in the strength, intellect and fortitude of women. When a woman says a fetus is a person, I think it is one. I believe the woman empowers the fetus."
