Many politicians...

“Many politicians, like much of the American public, seem to be unaware that abortion and euthanasia are serious violations of the inalienable right to life. These are not just 'Church' issues but are governed by the natural law of God, which is binding upon all human beings. The right to life is the most fundamental of all rights, since a person deprived of life has no other rights.”

I become more and more convinced...

“I become more and more convinced that we as bishops have been too silent for too long. I fear that we have left in error by our silence many who could have been taught. I fear that we have often failed to 'say openly what is right because of fear of losing the favor of men.' I do not necessarily expect that the clear and consistent teachings of the Church will be warmly received and accepted by a very secular age, but the decision about whether to speak or to remain silent must be based on the conviction about what is right and true and good, not what is popular.”

Let us never pretend that abortion...

“Let us never pretend that abortion is just a social or political phenomenon that has to be voted out of office to be defeated. We must do everything we can to restore legal protection to our most innocent citizens, but our battle against the devil will not be won at the polls. It will be won on our knees before the Lord and on our feet before the centers of death. More than ever we need men and women of tested holiness who are willing to fight the spiritual battle for the lives of God’s precious babies and the souls of their mothers and fathers.”
~ Fr. Thomas J. Euteneuer - The “Sacrament” of Abortion, Spirit & Life, August 10, 2007 ~
