Whatever else abortion is...

"Whatever else abortion is, it is the tragic result of self-idolatry even to the murder of unborn children who are considered an obstacle to self-gratification. There is no possibility, without the outpouring of extraordinary grace from God, of converting, or reconverting, what I have come to call the New Pagans. The old pagans, as we used to call them, had and have a plurality of gods whom they worship. The new pagans are strictly monotheistic. They believe in only one god. That one god is the Self."
~ Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. ~

Human life must be respected...

"Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life."
~ Catechism of the Catholic Church 2270 ~

To have a right...

"To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it."

We are knee-deep...

"We are knee-deep in a culture of death. ... Look, in this advanced democracy, in the year 2000, is it our crowning achievement that we have learned to treat people as things? Our moment in history is marked by a mortal conflict between a culture of life and a culture of death. God put us in the world to do noble things, to love and to cherish our fellow human beings, not to destroy them. Today we must choose sides." ("Today" could be any day...)
~ Congressman Henry Hyde, during his floor debate remarks pushing for a ban against Partial Birth Abortion in 2000 ~
