A Violent Attack is Made...

“A violent attack is made on developing life by abortion (with the result that there are 30 million to 40 million a year worldwide), and to facilitate abortion millions have been invested to develop abortifacient pills (RU-486). Millions more have been budgeted for making contraception less harmful to women, with the result that most chemical contraceptives on sale now act primarily against implantation, i.e., as abortifacients, without women knowing it. Who will be able to calculate the number of victims from this massacre?”
~ From a talk given April 4, 1991 by then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) to Cardinals invited to Rome by Pope John Paul II (see “Doctinal Documents on Threats to Life Proposed,”, p. 756). Quote taken from an excerpt in Eternal Life, April 1992 ~
