Let's Face the Facts and Tell the Truth about Abortion (Part I)

05-22-2016Fr. Don Kline, V.F.

The truth about abortion is repugnant and abhorrent. It is therefore not easy and requires courage to speak out about abortion. However, as Catholics, we must boldly speak the truth and contradict the untruths and misleading rhetoric which surrounds the issue.

Some of the myths are:

''The government should not interfere with someone's personal choice." This is neither practical, desirable or correct. If there is only one legitimate function of government, it is the protection of innocent human life and to prevent one individual victimizing another. The word "choice" might sound good, but the reality is that some "choices" are crimes and all crimes are "choices".
