So far, it’s 5,065 to 1 on Nelson Mandela and abortion

That’s 5,065 Catholic Bishops (including Pope Francis) offering unqualified praise for the late Nelson Mandela – or saying nothing at all vs. 1 Catholic Bishop with the “guts” to speak up about Nelson Mandela’s unqualified support for the world’s most liberal abortion laws, in South Africa.

According to Gloria.tv:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Roman Catholic Bishop of Providence weighed in on Nelson Mandela‘s death by calling his support for abortion “shameful.”

Bishop Thomas Tobin, in a statement posted Sunday on the diocesan website, said that while there is much to admire in Mandela’s life and public service, there’s a part of his legacy that is “not at all praiseworthy, namely his shameful promotion of abortion in South Africa.”

“Psycho Babe” Harth has very strange outlook on life, abortion, feminism … unfortunately shared by many, today.

Ultimately, said Harth, a woman has a right to abort because she “has a right to have a good life” and she does not have “the right to ruin it.” “And if a pregnancy is going to ruin her life in any way, she has a right to get the abortion. She has the right. She has an obligation to protect her life from being ruined. … Because you owe this respect to yourself because you’re a child of God. You should feel guilty if you don’t,” she said.

Asked about the unborn child’s rights, she answered that the issue was “important” to the choice to abort. “If you have an abortion, there is a fetus that will be killed. No way. This is true. But … for us, death is not the end of the story,” said Harth. “And this unborn child or fetus or whatever you want to call it is … well, we do not know what God is going to do with this creature. God has a lot of mercy, maybe…we don’t know.”

Catholic War Veterans Respond to Washington Governor’s Support for Naral and Abortion

ALEXANDRIA, VA: On May 18, 2009, Catholic Gov. Christine Gregoire of the state of Washington attended NARAL Pro-Choice America’s “Power of Choice Luncheon” fundraiser in Seattle.

NARAL (formerly known as the National Abortion Rights Action League) organized the event specifically to honor the leadership of their retiring Washington State Executive Director, Ms. Karen Cooper. During the event Gov. Gregoire is reported to have spoken very highly of Ms. Cooper for her work for NARAL promoting unrestricted abortion in the state of Washington and our country. Gov. Gregoire stated, “We are blessed to have had you as our great leader.” And “Women across the state can be proud of your advocacy.” She also made reference that there are many future unborn who will benefit from her (Ms. Cooper’s) leadership.

Today, the Catholic War Veterans of the U.S.A. want to ask Gov. Gregoire if being murdered is the “benefit” that these innocent unborn women and men (and quite possibly, future veterans) can look forward to as a result of NARAL’s lobbying efforts and her continued support? In time of war, Catholics are called with all other citizens to serve and defend the life of our nation.

In responding to this call, veterans are acutely aware of the meaning, hope, and value of every human life. We are deeply saddened by Gov. Gregoire’s continued support for abortion in the State of Washington and her continued public disregard for the teachings of our jointly held faith.
