  • National Coalition for Life and Peace Condemns Abortion Facility Bombing
    and pro abortion organizations to not grasp at straws by assuming a pro life advocate was responsible This is not necessarily the case In past incidents of abortion related violence people not associated with the pro life movement have been responsible Ertelt noted Ertelt pointed out that Eric Robert Rudolph is wanted in connection to two past incidents of violence at abortion facilities He has also been alleged to have been responsible for bombings and acts of violence having nothing to do with abortion The explosion took place near where FBI officials have been conducting a manhunt for Eric Rudolph since January of last year Some government officials feel he is hiding somewhere near his hometown in western North Carolina and could possibly be responsible for this bombing Eric Rudolph has never been a member of the pro life movement Ertelt said plainly No pro life leader or advocate in North Carolina has ever worked with him to protect life He s a complete unknown having no connections whatsoever The bomb was placed outside the abortion facility next to a wall near where the waiting room is located said Asheville Police Chief Will Annarino It went off at about a

  • Catholic Bishops: 'Shun' Pro-Abortion Candidates
    policy is to forestall having to disinvite somebody Abortion became a volatile issue for Catholic candidates in the mid 1980s when New York Gov Mario Cuomo D made public comments about his pro abortion position and Catholic vice presidential nominee Geraldine Ferraro was opposed by New York Cardinal John O Connor for being pro abortion The Times reports that while most dioceses and candidates know the delicate rules of protocol not all candidates abide by them Patricia Kelly associate director of the Maryland Catholic Conference said I t s a situation candidates have created by ignoring church teaching In California U S Rep Loretta Sanchez D has been attending mass at different Catholic parishes on Sundays and often gain s special recognition according to the Times Sanchez received a letter of censure in March from Bishop Norman McFarland stating that her church visits appear to be motivated by partisan and personal ambitions George Forsyth of the Catholic Campaign for America said the dioceses want to be fair and nonpartisan but it can be complicated He said There are far too many Catholic officials who use their affiliation with the church but who are pro abortion Bishop William Lori of the

  • US Catholic Bishops 2000 Statement on the Right to Life
    its legal reasoning on abortion must be reined in if it was not to exert a further corrosive effect on the protection of life after birth However any hope that the Court might reverse course on abortion itself was shattered this year In Stenberg v Carhart a majority of five justices ruled that even the killing of a child mostly born alive is protected by what the Court called the woman s right to choose This decision has brought our legal system to the brink of endorsing infanticide Already the National Abortion Reproductive Rights Action League has used this decision s expansion of the logic of Roe to attack congressional efforts to reaffirm that a child completely born alive is a legal person Such a policy said this group is in direct conflict with Roe which clearly states that women have the right to choose prior to fetal viability The euphemism of the right to choose routinely used to avoid mentioning abortion is now being used to justify killing outside the womb Ultimately this issue is not about when life begins or even exclusively about abortion Modern medicine has brought us face to face with the continuum of human life from conception onwards and the inescapable reality of human life in the womb Yet our legal system and thus our national culture is being pressed to declare that human life has no inherent worth that the value of human life can be assigned by the powerful and that the protection of the vulnerable is subject to the arbitrary choice of others The lives of all who are marginalized by our society are endangered by such a trend As religious leaders we know that human life is our first gift from a loving Father and the condition for all other earthly

  • Jewish Leaders Meet to Take Active Pro-Life Stand
    speaker of this year s National Right to Life convention asked Why has it become the entrenched political position on the left and to a large part in the center and also on the right of center I think it has to do with the essence of being a woman in modern day America Women see the right to choose as they call it as a means of liberating them from the constraints of their sex Stein concluded Pro lifers are a little known segment of the Jewish community most of which supports abortion Of the 10 Jewish legislators in the U S Senate only one pro abortion Sen Arlen Specter R PA voted for the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act in 1997 and 1998 This attitude carries over into synagogues speakers said The short answer to why don t rabbis talk about this more said Rabbi Clifford Librach of the liberal Temple Sinai of Sharon is one hyphenated word Self preservation An American conservative rabbi would carry on about abortion at his peril I m not sure that American Jews don t know about abortion I think they don t want to know I think the American Jewish community the vast number of American Jews are prepared to say Well we just don t want anybody telling us or anybody else what they should do because we re afraid that we re a beleaguered victimized minority that s quite vulnerable Liberal Conservative and Orthodox rabbis at the meeting agreed that Jewish law forbids abortion unless the mother s life is at stake not her health as well as is the sentiment among many pro abortion groups But in every other situation when there is no such mortal threat abortion is prohibited said Rabbi David Novak a Conservative clergyman teaching

  • THE ETHICS OF CHOICE
    that are deamed productive and valuable are protected With abortion and euthanasia choice creates an either or scenario What do Christians say about God when they imply he can t care for both mother and preborn child both family and terminally ill loved ones An either or choice confines the Creator of all life to human knowledge human technology human situational ethics While we may feel that our resources are limited God s are not Dare we suppose that He must make a choice Dare we think Him unable to love and care every person he has made Do you question Me about My children asked the Lord or give Me orders about the work of My hands Is 45 11b God assures us that He can and will care for every human being from the moment of conception to natural death He does not have to choose between a woman or her child He does not have to choose between the baby scheduled for abortion and labled as spare parts for the patient with Huntington s disease The world leaves men women and children to choice but choice ultimately causes people to disconnect from one another Doing whatever is right in our own eyes builds walls of separation which leave people lonely and alienates the created from the Creator Toleration of harmful choices risks further separation With Truth and love God equips His people to restore connectedness When we discuss topics that are off limits or even dare to offer a second viewpoint we build bridges instead of walls When we take care not to break already bruised reeds but ask questions that expose reality we build bridges instead of walls The heart of the matter is this when we tell people things they have never heard before when

  • Family Research Council on Courts and Partial-Birth Abortion
    abortionists as well as excerpts from court opinions on partial birth abortion bans around the country The purpose of this publication is not to pine over the seeming loss of human feeling within legal and medical circles Wagner said Rather it is a reminder to all citizens that black robes and white coats do not confer moral authority The citizenry must assert its sound moral judgment on this issue and reject the barbarity that the legal and medical elites would foist upon us A January 1998 Wirthlin poll commissioned by Family Research Council found that 61 percent of Americans believe abortion should not be permitted after signs of life can be detected The Truth in Black and White excerpts the affidavits of doctors who perform partial birth abortions as well as other abortion methods Doctors testify to disarticulated limbs floating heads and piece by piece removal of the fetus from the uterus Every form of abortion involves the violent destruction of innocent human beings and is therefore an egregious wrong said Wagner The dismemberment of a child within the womb is as much a violation of a child s human rights as stabbing the child s head when he or

  • Catholic Leaders Vs. Pro-Abortion Politicians
    else may be pastorally required in regard to elected leaders who contradict the Gospel of life through their actions and policies says the document titled Living the Gospel of Life A Challenge to American Catholics While Catholic leaders like O Connor have in the past said that Catholic officials who support abortion put themselves at risk of excommunication bishops in recent years have shied away from threatening such harsh sanctions I think it has to be handled at the local level said Camden s Bishop McHugh an influential member of the bishops Pro Life Activities committee which drafted the document It is extremely difficult to formulate a national policy on what to do in these cases Although he is an outspoken conservative McHugh has ruled out excommunication as a sanction for pro abortion Catholics like Florio The hierarchy s main weapon has instead focused on measures that publicly register the church s disapproval In 1995 former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim McGreevey then a state senator and mayor of Woodbridge ran afoul of the church for his pro abortion views and was barred from speaking at Catholic churches Last summer the bishop of Orange County Norman F McFarland chided pro abortion Democratic congresswoman Loretta Sanchez for speaking at Catholic churches during her tough rematch with pro life ex Rep Robert K Dornan In 1989 in the harshest punishment ever meted out San Diego Bishop Leo Maher announced that he would deny communion to Lucy Killea a Democratic candidate for state senate who was pro abortion Killea won however Non Catholics also have come under increasing pressure from Catholic leaders as the bishops have sought to raise their profile on the abortion issue Just this week Seton Hall University administrators decided to move a ceremony honoring pro abortion Governor Christine Whitman a Presbyterian to an off campus locale The university cited Whitman s pro abortion stand which became especially galling to Catholic leaders last year when she lobbied hard against a ban on the partial birth abortion procedure The bishops feel that their greatest clout and responsibility lies with Catholic politicians and they say that with this new document they can finally present a united and consistent front in hallenging Catholic leaders Two years ago a number of bishops expressed concern about a growing number of Catholic politicians who were taking pro abortion positions with no apparent concern said McHugh who has pushed his fellow bishops to assume a higher profile in public policy debates We felt we had to call this to their attention he added We also felt we had to do it consistently and not to think that we could assert our position once and then let it go With more than 60 million members Catholics are the largest single denomination in the country and the conflict between pro abortion Catholic officials and bishops is common in states with large Catholic concentrations like New Jersey where 42 percent of the residents are Catholic Five of the New Jersey s
