Speak Up

“…but the Church has with firmness maintained that life in
the womb is ever sacred and no one hasthe right to end it.”

I must give credit to Michael Shackleton for the good editorial in this week’s edition of The Southern Cross.  The editorial, entitled “Fruit Of The Womb”, discusses the sad reality of abortion.  It expresses the urgent need for Catholics to stop simply silently accepting the immorality that society wishes to impose on them, even it is ‘written’ into the laws of the country.  Michael Shackleton rightly highlights that this ‘silence’ “scorns the Church’s strong and categorical teaching that what is legally passed into civil law is not inevitably passed into morally acceptable conduct.”
