Pope Saint John Paul the Great points out a simple, but rather profound reality: “The history of every human being passes through the threshold of a woman’s motherhood” (#19, emphasis added). He means that every human who makes it to heaven was first entrusted to an earthly mother.

If she was pressured into the abortion, such feelings may be exacerbated. She may have been told she is “too young,” “too poor,” “would make a poor mother,” etc. If she follows through with the abortion, then she may associate such statements with herself, causing psychological damage.
She is physically capable of conceiving, yet she has convinced herself she cannot be a mother. The disconnect may cause anguish. Further self-destructive behaviors could follow.
Ever Wonder Why When You Speak to Liberals on Abortion They Want to Divert the Conversation to Environmental “Emergencies?”
Author, J. Budziszewski puts likens setting up a diversion to this:
“Because I refuse to give my real transgressions, I invest other things with inflated significance and give up those things instead. Perhaps I have pressured three girlfriends into abortion, but I oppose war and capital punishment, I don’t wear fur, and I beat my chest with shame whenever I slip and eat red meat. Easier to face invented guilt than the thing itself.”
Are You About to Put Your Child through Sex Education in Public School?: Just Turn In Your Parental Card Right Now
Children as young as four (4) years old are being taught about masturbation (by Planned Parenthood). Sixth grade students are being handed condoms by public school employees.
X-rated materials have been shown to middle school students. Sixth graders were given a live demonstration of sexual positions with props. The examples could go on and on.
I have had several teenagers come shake my hand afterward, saying they really appreciate what I had to say. This is the best consolation I could receive. God willing, they will put it into practice.
For roughly the last six years, on occasion, I have the privilege to bring the Good News about sexuality to teenagers.
But I have no illusions. I know the task of bringing light and clarity to the youth remains a daunting task, especially in this Culture of Death.
To Create the Culture of Death, Pope Saint John Paul II Explains Moral Relativism First Sows Seeds of Hatred
“In this way, any reference to common values and to a truth absolutely binding on everyone is lost, and social life ventures on to the shifting sands of complete relativism. At that point, everything is negotiable, everything is open to bargaining: even the first of the fundamental rights, the right to life.” -Pope Saint John Paul the Great
He goes on to speak about the moral relativist, who he calls “the Innovator.” “[A]ll the values which he uses in attacking Tao (a.k.a., the Natural Law), and even claims to be substituting for it, are themselves derived from Tao.”
Similarly, he writes later, “Only by such shreds of the Tao as he has inherited is he enabled even to attack it. The question therefore arises what title he has to select bits of it for acceptance and to reject others.”
Whereas, moral relativism says that morality is relative, by definition. The theory of moral relativism teaches people can define for themselves their own ethics, as there are no absolute truths. Every man is an island unto himself. No one can tell another what to do.
It sounds like a decent proposition, but it has a fatal flaw that must be exposed.
