About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Nun sacked for approving abortion...

"An unborn child is not a disease. While medical professionals should certainly try to save a pregnant mother's life, the means by which they do it can never be by directly killing her unborn child. The end does not justify the means."

The rest can be found here;

Just my opinion, I'm by no means an expert in Church canon law, the Catechism, or bioethics.

Abortion is always wrong. Period. No exceptions allowed. If as an unintended consequence of a medical procedure an unborn life is terminated that's a different story. That wasn't the case here.

As for anyone asking, "What about the life of the mother? Wouldn't the baby have died anyway?"

My answer would be A) Shit happens, we all die at some time, and B) Yep, both lives would have been snuffed.

If the mother had chosen to adhere to Church teaching and remain in the hospital, the medical staff there could have done their best. That might have been damned little as she slowly suffocated to death (as I understand the condition she had). But it wouldn't have been as if they turned her out in the street to die.

Do I think abortion should be banned across the board, even in cases like this? You bet. Is that wishing to impose my religious beliefs on others? Probably, but if abortion is evil it should never be tolerated.

There are no exceptions, there are no gray areas, no nuance to be considered. It's black and white. Shit happens, people die, sometimes they die even if that entails passing up a procedure that would be their salvation.

It's just as unacceptable to abort a child in this scenario as it is to harvest organs from a patient in a vegetative state in order to save the life of another. End of story.

The Lamestream Media and CINO's will be applauding the "courage" of this nun, fomenting outrage at her excommunication (although THAT was automatic and never imposed by anyone else), and in general banging the drum of "that mean old Catholic Church, headed up by misogynist old men and followed by clueless Neanderthals." Noted. Maureen Dowd and her ilk are undoubtedly penning sympathetic articles now. Look for Sr. McBride to appear on The View, Oprah, etc. Her book will probably be out in less than a year.

She was wrong. She should have stood on Church teaching, she should have fought for the life of the unborn.
