A View from the Bottom

The following discourse took place on social media, concerning Hilary Clinton's view that  the Unborn Person Doesn’t Have Constitutional Rights’: 

Susanne Sadly many women vote democrat on this one issue ... most of them have ZERO clue as to what third trimester abortion is or that the unborn "person" would likely survive birth. Makes me sick!

Rose Thank you for sharing Donald.

Donald What you also notice and what I think God will judge more harshly than disbelief in God, are this folks who claum to be Christian but don't speak out against abortion. This of course, makes them hypocrites but far worse than that in God's view. It takes courage to speak out. Most people are not courageous.

Kim I know many people who claim to be Catholic but are pro abortion. I just don't know how the justify this in their head and heart...

Did you ever notice that when people take issue with Catholic teaching, rarely does it concern the Hypostatic Union, the Vatican’s guidelines on road rage, or the Vatican Conference on Extraterrestrial Life? No, those things with which they take issue bear directly or vicariously on their sexual lives — homosexuality, same-sex “marriage,” premarital sex, adultery, contraception, masturbation, population control, abortion, divorce, remarriage, in vitro fertilization, etc. Remember Our Lord’s words on this: "What comes out of a man is what defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, fornication, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a man." Recall too that, as Fr. Charles Curran has reminded us, dissent from Humanae Vitae “was paradigmatic of the dissent in all specific moral questions.” My advice to those who still doubt in our sexually-befuddled world is that it is a fatal error not to observe “how Lucifer actually works and why he is so intent on perverting our sexuality.”  Indeed, a Catholic understanding of human sexuality gives us “a glimpse of the ‘great mystery’ of God’s plan to unite all things in Christ.”
