The real question today is not when human life begins…

“The real question today is not when human life begins, but, What is the value of human life?  The abortionist who reassembles the arms and legs of a tiny baby to make sure all its parts have been torn from its mother’s body can hardly doubt whether it is a human being.  The real question for him and for all of us is whether that tiny human life has a God-given right to be protected bythe law – the same right we have.”

~ Ronald Reagan

 

The definition of chastity

“Chastity: (from Latin castus, clean, pure, temperate): the virtue by which a person who is capable of passion deliberately and resolutely reserves his erotic desires for love and resists the temptation to find lewd images in the media or to use others as a means of achieving his own satisfaction.”

~ YOUCAT pg 220

The tests which modern society subjects Christians to, infact, are many…

“The tests which modern society subjects Christians to, in fact, are many, and affect the personal and social life.  It is not easy to be faithful to Christian marriage, practice mercy in everyday life, leave space for prayer and inner silence, it is not easy to publicly oppose choices that many take for granted, such as abortion in the event of an unwanted pregnancy, euthanasia in case of serious illness, or the selection of embryos to prevent hereditary diseases.  The temptation to set aside one’s faith is always present and conversion becomes a response to God which must be confirmed several times throughout one’s life.”

~ Pope Benedict XVI, Wednesday Audience, 13 February 2013

Either life is always and in all circumstances sacred, or intrinsically of no account…

“This life in us; however low it flickers or fiercely burns, is still a divine flame which no man dare presume to put out, be his motives never so humane and enlightened;  To suppose otherwise is to countenance a death-wish;  Either life is always and in all circumstances sacred, or intrinsically of no account; it is inconceivable that it should be in some cases the one, and in some the other.”

~ Malcolm Muggeridge

He who denies that human life begins with conception does not need to contend with religion, but science…

“He who denies that human life begins with conception does not need to contend with religion, but science.  To deny this certainty of biology is not to express a lack of faith, but a lack of basic knowledge of human genetics, something that is even known by the general public.”

~Ecuadorian Federation of Societies of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FESGO), April 17 2008

 

The family especially is under attack…

“The family especially is under attack.  And the sacred character of human life denied.  Naturally, the weakest members of society are the most at risk:  the unborn, children, the sick, the handicapped, the old, the poor and the unemployed, the immigrant and refugee, the South of the world!”

~Blessed John Paul II, World Youth Day, Denver USA, 1993
