Catholics MUST Be ProLife: Action! (3)

Catholics MUST Be ProLife: Action! (3)

This thread is dedicated to sharing news about pro-life issues.

Where possible, we suggest that bloggers make and respond to calls to action in defence of the unborn child – whether that entails emailing MPs or supporting various vigils etc.
Try not to simply post a link to news – publish an extract and/or make a suggestion about possible action, that will encourage readers to click your link.

Among all the crimes which can be committed against life, procured abortion has characteristics making it particularly serious and deplorable. The Second Vatican Council defines abortion, together with infanticide, as an “unspeakable crime”.54

But today, in many people’s consciences, the perception of its gravity has become progressively obscured. The acceptance of abortion in the popular mind, in behaviour and even in law itself, is a telling sign of an extremely dangerous crisis of the moral sense, which is becoming more and more incapable of distinguishing between good and evil, even when the fundamental right to life is at stake. Given such a grave situation, we need now more than ever to have the courage to look the truth in the eye and to call things by their proper name, without yielding to convenient compromises or to the temptation of self-deception. In this regard the reproach of the Prophet is extremely straightforward: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness” (Is 5:20). Especially in the case of abortion there is a widespread use of ambiguous terminology, such as “interruption of pregnancy”, which tends to hide abortion’s true nature and to attenuate its seriousness in public opinion. Perhaps this linguistic phenomenon is itself a symptom of an uneasiness of conscience. But no word has the power to change the reality of things: procured abortion is the deliberate and direct killing, by whatever means it is carried out, of a human being in the initial phase of his or her existence, extending from conception to birth.

The moral gravity of procured abortion is apparent in all its truth if we recognize that we are dealing with murder… Pope John Paul II: Evangelium Vitae – on the Value and Inviolability, of Human Life #58  [Emphasis added]   Click here to read the entire encyclical

    This morning, BBC Radio 4 gave their prominent platform of Thought for the Day to a Catholic commentator who proceeded to state, unchallenged, that abortion laws in the UK “demean people with disability.”
    It is deeply problematic that BBCR4 continue to give an unchallenged platform for these proclamations. Would we accept the BBC providing the same platform for an individual to espouse their religious opposition to same-sex relationships, for example?
    The presentation of Thought of the Day suggests that individuals given this prestigious platform are representative of those with the same religious beliefs.
    This is simply not true. NatCen Social Research polling has found that the majority of Catholics in GB support a women’s right to choose.
    Abortion has been legal in certain circumstances since 1967. One in three women will have an abortion in their lifetime. We are a pro-choice country.
    You would not get this impression listening to the coverage, dominated by pieces problematizing abortion on BBCR4.
    Why is abortion coverage always an issue of morality, always a debate?
    In this country, abortion is an accepted part of women’s healthcare.
    Would we accept any other NHS-funded routine medical procedure being constantly framed in this way? No.
    Does anyone recall BBCR4 Thought for the Day featuring a religious individual espousing their views on the morality of same-sex relationships when, for example, PrEP started to be provided by the NHS?
    Since the govt granted temporary permission for early medical abortion care to be provided by telemedicine, we have created a world-leading reproductive healthcare framework.
    Yet this incredible revolution in women’s healthcare is constantly boxed-in as a moral debate.
    Thought for the Day is famed for tenuous links between current affairs and religious views, but using the amazing results from the Paralympics to condemn women who make heartbreaking decisions to end wanted pregnancies due to a diagnosis of a severe fetal anomaly is pretty low.
    We are sick of constantly having to challenge the way the most common gynecological procedures in the UK is being presented.
    Abortion is healthcare. This isn’t a matter for debate.
    Agree? Support our work, consider becoming a Friend of BPAS, link in bio.

    Dear All please note above the heinous BPAS upset over a Catholic commentator you might like to contact BBC Radio 4

    Subject: March for Life this weekend

    Dear wendy,

    The past eighteen months have been challenging. The pandemic has brought limitations in our ability to publicly protest against abortion and the other evils brought about by our culture of death.

    Most large outdoor events from March 2020 until now have been cancelled due to worries around COVID-19. This affected pro-life events that CitizenGO would typically attend.

    This Saturday that all changes.

    We at CitizenGO are ecstatic to have the opportunity to participate in the March for Life UK. And, we hope to see you there!

    This Saturday, September 4th, March for Life UK is a day-long event. Our team is ready to join thousands of pro-lifers from around the United Kingdom in being outspoken for the right to life.

    Abortion kills pre-born children, the most innocent among us, and any country that accepts abortion cannot truly claim to respect the right to life for all human beings.

    The doors open at 10:00 a.m. to The Emmanuel Centre where you will have the opportunity to meet a few members of the CitizenGO team. We will be in the expo asking pro-life attendees to sign our important petition: STOP DIY ABORTION.

    Before the march portion of the event starts, please make sure to stop by our expo booth. We are offering supporters a free pro-life t-shirt to wear during the march and rally to Parliament Square.

    It’s simple:

    Meet our a few members of our team at the expo.
    Sign our important petition: STOP DIY ABORTION.
    We will hook you up with a free t-shirt
    March and then rally at Parliament Square.
    We can’t wait to see you there.

    Caroline Farrow and the entire CitizenGO Team

    A heated debate on the abortion ban in Texas, USA – shocking comments from the pro-abortionist. For pro-life, Andrea Williams of Christian Concern is very impressive.

    Thank you to everyone who made it along to the March For Life on Saturday. It was an amazing day with thousands of people taking to the streets in London to stand up for the unborn and women facing unplanned pregnancies.

    It was great to meet so many of you at our stall, during the rally and in Parliament Square after. You can see more of the day in the photos that we have published here – this includes photos from the march and our photo wall at LifeFest.

    We have also published an article on our news service with further reporting from the day.

    INVITE YOUR MP TO A PARLIAMENTARY EVENT

    Today, MPs and Peers have returned to Parliament and to a very busy remainder of the year.

    Baroness Meacher’s assisted suicide Bill received a First Reading in the House of Lords on 26 May and will be proceeding onto a Second Reading shortly.

    It is critical that the Government does not give in to the assisted suicide lobby and rejects any moves to introduce assisted suicide to the UK.

    As part of its work to ensure that the Government does not support assisted suicide and that, as a society, we continue to improve end-of-life care, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Dying Well is hosting a parliamentary event tomorrow evening.

    At the event, MPs, MSPs, MSs and Peers will hear directly from international medical professionals on their concerns about assisted suicide and euthanasia, based on their experiences in jurisdictions where they have been legalised.

    TAKE ACTION

    It is vital that as many parliamentarians as possible attend the event on Tuesday to ensure they are aware of the negative impact that assisted suicide and euthanasia has had overseas.

    We have launched a tool on our website today which makes it easy for you to send an email to your local politician asking them to attend the event. Please click the button below to contact your MP now. It only takes 30 seconds.

    Click here to email your MP now
    Many thanks,

    Catherine Robinson
