A Penitent Blogger

Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

"If you can’t trust me with a choice..."

"...How can you trust me with a child?"

So says a bumper sticker.

But what is the choice?
To rob a bank? To beat up old ladies? To kill children?

If the choice is abortion, it is a choice to kill a child.
That is not choice; that is not freedom; that is murder.

If someone is inclined to kill unborn children, perhaps that person should indeed choose not to go down the road that leads to childbearing, but that is no excuse to kill children in the womb.

We need to pray for the children threatened and slaughtered in the womb. We also need to pray and work to help children who have been born as well as those women who may be tempted to do terrible things to their children.
