but his accomplices will, either directly or indirectly.
Who are they? Every single person who is pro-abortion, so-called pro-choice or ambivalent. You know who they are. You are surrounded by them and your country is led by many of them. We currently have the most pro-abortion president in history and so many people you know voted for him and would again given the opportunity. The blood of Gosnell‘s victims and all of his fellow abortionists’ victims is on their hands. And to some degree on the hands of us pro-lifers too; significantly before we became actively pro-life, but to some degree, even now.
No matter what type of killing procedure is used – whether it mutilates the victim or not; whether it is perceived as a brutal and barbaric act of violence or not – a life is exterminated. Someone’s future eliminated. A pre-born infant, child, adolescent, adult – a person – is deprived of its very existence in the physical realm.
All of us must come to the realization that all intentional killing of human life is barbaric unless in legitimate defense.
We all must come to sufficiently recognize the human person in everyone who is victimized, rejected, abandoned, and defenseless in the worldwide community. This cannot be accomplished if we do not firstly recognize and protect the most defenseless among us – the unborn. (Fredi D’Alessio)
What kind of identity do we want for America?
But [America] your greatest beauty and your richest blessing is found in the human person: in each man, woman and child, in every immigrant, in every native-born son and daughter.
For this reason, America, your deepest identity and truest character as a nation is revealed in the position you take towards the human person. The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless ones.
The best traditions of your land presume respect for those who cannot defend themselves. If you want equal justice for all, and true freedom and lasting peace, then, America, defend life! All the great causes that are yours today will have meaning only to the extent that you guarantee the right to life and protect the human person… (Pope John Paul II)
