NPR.org – Nun Excommunicated For Allowing Abortion

When is letting a human being die when you could save her life NOT EVIL?????

Apparently when the alternative is an abortion.

The Catholic Church would rather women die than ever have an abortion, even in the early weeks of pregnancy. THEY ARE OKAY with both mother and fetus dying, even if the mother could have been saved by sacrificing the fetus.

[Lisa Sowle Cahill, who teaches Catholic theology at Boston College:] “There was no good way out of it. The official church position would mandate that the correct solution would be to let both the mother and the child die.”

“She consented in the murder of an unborn child,” says the Rev. John Ehrich, the medical ethics director for the Diocese of Phoenix. “There are some situations where the mother may in fact die along with her child. But ā€” and this is the Catholic perspective ā€” you can’t do evil to bring about good. The end does not justify the means.”

But apparently you CAN DO EVIL to prevent abortion — so doesn’t this negate their position that the end doesn’t justify the means?

Something tells me that there isn’t a single lay member of the Catholic church who agrees with this policy.

The Catholic Church is WRONG. This is IMMORAL.

  1. You tell ’em, sistah!I need to rant more instead of just posting pikturs and paintinks. I read that S. Palin is blaming the environmentalists for the Gulf oil spill….If I didn’t agree with Bill Maher that religion is "batsh*t," I’d be tending to blame G*d for putting that there black gold cr*p into the middle of the earth under pressure.
