Truth in the Womb: What ‘Pro-Choice’ Catholic Democrats Fail to Understand| National Catholic Register

As a mainstream journalist and former pro-choice feminist who searched most of my life for the truth and found it at last in the Person of Christ in the Catholic Church, I am deeply disturbed by the so-called “statement of principles” 60 pro-abortion Democrats have released as our bishops consider how to handle the scandal of pro-abortion politicians presenting themselves for Communion. How dare these self-proclaimed Catholic politicians attempt to redefine the faith to further their political ambitions according to their own misunderstandings of what it means to be human. Do they not realize that Christ (God himself) came into the world as an embryo? Do they not realize the early Church Fathers from the very first centuries of Christianity condemned abortion as murder? Do they not realize when they advocate and promote the killing of the baby in the womb that they are standing in the place of Pilate (asking, “What is truth?”) and are thereby crucifying the image of Christ all over again?  I want to tell these very misguided politicians that legalized abortion is the true “war on women,” and from the very first day abortion was inserted into the National Organization for Women’s “Bill of Rights” in 1967 by a mere 57 people, noble pro-life Christian feminists have been fighting nonstop to reverse this horrible error.  I want to tell these deluded, self-defined Catholic politicians that Roe v. Wade, written in part by Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun (another extremely misguided Christian), is a disastrously flawed document that denies that the little baby in the womb is already an ensouled person — and that’s why this disastrous court decision continues to divide our nation. Truth unites, and what do lies do? They divide us. They rip us apart.
