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. ~
