“A true and proper right to a child would be contrary to the child’s dignity and nature. The child is not an object to which one has a right, nor can he be considered as an object of ownership: rather, a child is a gift, “the supreme gift” and the most gratuitous gift of marriage, and is a living testimony of the mutual giving of his parents. For this reason, the child has the right, as already mentioned, to be the fruit of the specific act of the conjugal love of his parents; and he also has the right to be respected as a person from the moment of his conception.”[click to continue...]
Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life.[click to continue...]
Then-Cardinal Ratzinger goes on to liken this present situation to Genesis 3, following the Fall. God kicks Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden, and then He places angels to stand guard to bar the first humans’ reentry. Man was prohibited from eating from the tree that gave immortality, “since,” as Ratzinger explains, “to be immortal in this [fallen] condition would… be perdition.” Scientists “with genetic codes available to them [are] starting to pick from the tree of life and make themselves the lords of life and death, to reassemble life…”[click to continue...]

Let’s begin by observing the most obvious error in her thinking. That is, by agreeing to not talk about the issues of abortion, contraception, so-called “gay marriage,” L.G.B.T. issues, and so forth, we would thus guarantee their further decaying of our culture. Only by shining a light into the darkness of sinful behavior does such behavior ever end. “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them,” the Bible instructs (Eph 5:11).[click to continue...]
“This moral condemnation also regards procedures that exploit living human embryos and fetuses—sometimes specifically ‘produced’ for this purpose by in vitro fertilization—either to be used as ‘biological material’ or as providers of organs or tissue for transplants in the treatment of certain diseases. The killing of innocent human creatures, even if carried out to help others, constitutes an absolutely unacceptable act” -Pope Saint John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, 63, emphasis added).[click to continue...]
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.[click to continue...]
