Pro-Choice or Pro-Abortion?

Over the years we have often heard those on the “other side” of the abortion debate make the claim that they are “Pro-Choice, not Pro-Abortion.” These folks generally argue that they would be happy if there were zero abortions…and…that abortion should always be an option.

We have every reason to believe that a given individual who takes this position is being sincere…and…we hope that such people understand that they are helping to advance the cause of those who are truly and zealously Pro-Abortion.

Take a look at this article from The Pillar, noting in particular the actions of Pro-Abortion states like New York and California. There is no reasonable interpretation other than those behind such diabolical government actions WANT abortions to occur. Period.

Keep this in mind next time you hear someone claim to be “Pro-Choice, not Pro-Abortion.” Hopefully consideration of their cooperation in the success of the truly evil Pro-Abortion movement will lead them to become Pro-Life!

Roe Fallout

In response to the, possible(!), overturning of Roe v Wade

Governor Hochul has announced an immediate appropriation of $35 million for abortion services in New York as part of her ongoing campaign to make the state a “sanctuary” for women seeking the procedure. At a time when families are struggling with an affordability crisis, it is unconscionable that taxpayer dollars would be used in a way that violates the conscience of so many pro-life New Yorkers. Urge the Governor to reverse course and use this funding to support women and their babies, instead of to promote and encourage abortion.

The NYS Catholic Conference makes it easy to share your opinion with Gov Hochul here.

Please take just a few moments to weigh in on this important issue!

(Possibly) Overturning Roe v Wade

If true, and we pray it is(!), this is the answer the literally billions of prayers uttered in defense of life over the past 49 years.

Please keep in mind both that this is a leaked story and may or may not prove to be true…and…sadly, for all but about 13 states this decision will have no immediate effect, especially here in NY given the extreme laws passed over the years.

We will continuing to pray for Pro-Life victories, large and small!

We would also be remiss if we did not point to the fact that abortion is a significant part of the spiritual battle being waged by Satan against God and his Church.

“Abortion is the Antichrist’s demonic parody of the Eucharist. That is why it uses the same holy words, ‘This is my body,’ with the blasphemously opposite meaning.”Peter Kreeft

CMA Condemns Oregon’s Removal of Residency Requirements for PAS

    Catholic Medical Association Condemns Oregon’s Removal of Residency Requirements for Physician Assisted Suicide
 

Philadelphia, PA -April 4, 2022- Catholic Medical Association, which strongly opposes Physician Assisted Suicide, today condemned the State of Oregon’s decision to no longer enforce residency requirements for patients seeking euthanasia.  

“Removing the residency requirement from Oregon’s so called ‘Death with Dignity Act’ further undermines the dignity and sanctity of life. Inviting people from across state lines to come to Oregon to end their lives is not aligned with good medical care,” said Craig Treptow, M.D., President of CMA.  

CMA advocates for the respect of life in all of its stages and this includes ensuring dignified end-of-life care.  

“The State of Oregon has now extended its promotion of assisted suicide beyond its borders, inviting residents of other states to die with Oregon’s help. Every state has physicians and other health care professionals, including the members of CMA, that believe every patient deserves better than what Oregon offers,” said Tim Millea, M.D., Chair of CMA’s Health Care Policy Committee.  

CMA has remained active on the topic of Physician Assisted Suicide and in June of 2019, applauded the AMA for upholding its opposition to assisted suicide.  

### The Catholic Medical Association is a national, physician-led community of 2,400 healthcare professionals consisting of 115 local guilds. CMA’s mission is to inform, organize, and inspire its members, in steadfast fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church, to uphold the principles of the Catholic faith in the science and practice of medicine.

Co-Chair of CMA’s Ethics Committe, Greg Burke, M.D., previously explained that a physician’s role is not to abandon a patient at the end of their life, but to “caringly walk with the patient through that uncertainty, alleviating suffering, while providing every opportunity for meaningful living as one prepares for death.”  

CMA urges Oregon to reconsider its position on Physician Assisted Suicide and restore dignity for its patients and their families.
