So sad

Mother Teresa said every abortion has two victims, the child and the mother.  I believe that is true, certainly for those women who struggle with guilt and regret, but even more so for those women who do not.  This woman has repented and confessed, but those who “proudly” defend their “choice” will face eternal judgment with hardened hearts.

2017_06 Abortion regret

The mother was given tablets at an abortion clinic to induce labor. She was supposed to return to the clinic to deliver the dead fetus, but she was hiding her pregnancy from her mother and went into labor at home.  She explains:

“(I) called an ambulance (my mother thought maybe my appendix had burst or something, I still hadn’t told her what was going on) and I delivered in the ambulance. When she met me at the hospital later and I had to tell her that I’d just had a baby I still pretended that I was just as surprised as she was… I said I had no idea I had been pregnant. The hospital has a special photographer that does pictures for stillborn babies and they gave me the pictures.”

If she had delivered at the abortion clinic, her daughter’s body would have been dissected for organs to sell, burned with medical waste, or simply thrown out.

Humility is a virtue

Humility - Mother Teresa

Signs of a lack of humility:

  • Making excuses when rebuked.
  • Refusing to carry out menial tasks.
  • Seeking or wanting to be singled out.
  • Always wanting to get your own way.
  • Despising the point of view of others.
  • Being ashamed of not having certain possessions.
  • Mentioning yourself as an example in conversation.
  • Being hurt that others are held in greater esteem than you.
  • Not being aware that all the gifts and qualities you have are on loan.
  • Thinking that what you do or say is better than what others do or say.
  • Hearing praise with satisfaction, or being glad that others have spoken well of you.
  • Giving your opinion without being asked for it, when charity does not demand you to do so.
  • Arguing when you are not right or — when you are — insisting stubbornly or with bad manners.
  • Speaking badly about yourself, so that they may form a good opinion of you, or contradict you.
  • Not acknowledging that you are unworthy of all honour or esteem, even the ground you are treading on or the things you own.
  • Letting drop words of self-praise in conversation, or words that might show your honesty, your wit or skill, your professional prestige.
  • Hiding some humiliating faults from your director, so that he may not lose the good opinion he has of you.

The Left’s War on Children

December 27, 2013: A Houston federal court issued an injunction against the Obama Democrat HHS Mandate requiring employers to provide employees with abortion-causing drugs and devices. The ruling said the HHS Mandate – which Democrats drafted and Obama vigorously supports – violates federal civil rights laws. Altogether there are 89 lawsuits challenging the HHS Mandate. Twelve of the cases involving non-profit groups have been decided; nine have resulted in injunctions against the HHS Mandate.

1994: Mother Teresa of Calcutta at the National Prayer Breakfast

The National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event held in Washington, D.C., on the first Thursday of February each year. It is hosted by members of Congress and typically has two special guest speakers: the President of the United States and a guest whose identity is kept confidential until that morning. In 1994, that president was the pro-abortion Democrat, Bill Clinton, and the guest was the pro-life Catholic, Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Text below begins at about 14:00.

“[I]f we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”

“How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, her free time, to respect the life of her child.

“For the child is the greatest gift of God to the family because it has been created to love and to be loved. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble — so abortion just leads to more abortion.

“Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love one another, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

ABORTION Archbishop Chaput

Catholic teaching on conscience

  • Little else defines humanity than the gift of being able to personally distinguish good from evil and to choose between them.
  • The inner voice that moves us to do good under any circumstances and to avoid evil by all means is called conscience.
  • It is in the conscience that God speaks to us.
  • Anyone who overlooks the conscience of a person, ignores it and uses coercion, violates that person’s dignity.
