God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

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.

On selective abortion.

One of the unintended consequences. The article is here.

The War Department and I have been offered prebirth screening of our child for birth defects. This happened all three times. We've turned it down because we feel, "What's the point?" No matter what we're having the baby and trusting to God's mercy & wisdom. Period.

In my last marriage my wife gave birth to our second son. He died 30 hours later. No screening at that time would have detected his birth defect. It didn't exist then and I'm not so sure it does now. Regardless, I'd still go through with it. "Designer babies" don't fit into my game plan.

And what else is spoken of in the above listed article if not selective breeding? It sounds good, no birth defects, getting the child you really love, etc. But every act has unforseen consequences.

If none of this impresses or makes sense than do a Google search of famous people born with defects and figure out what we all would have lost if they'd never been born. The quick list I saw included Jim Abbott, Tom Cruise and Helen Keller. Okay, Tom Cruise isn't my cup of tea either. But SOMEBODY sure likes him!
