Many Evils, the Same Victim

Often those who defend abortion, knowing that they do not have any valid arguments, resort to blanket criticism of priests for abusing children. What these abortion supporters don’t seem to realize is that by supporting the killing of children, they weaken their argument against the abuse of children. After all, it’s the same victim.

The Church, and so many people of good will, oppose both the abuse and killing of children – and of anyone else as well.

The argument of pro-life people is one of consistency and inclusion. The tragedy of Roe v Wade is summarized in its line that “the word person does not include the unborn.”

Let’s oppose the killing of every and any innocent human life, and call on our opponents to stop being selective in their opposition to evil.
