HE MAY BE ANTI-ABORTION BUT HE IS NOT PROLIFE!
With the killer, anything but pro-life, in Colorado, we see how lack of appropriate mental health in our country can lead the imbalanced to irrational violent and deadly acts. We let those with serious mental illnesses fend for themselves. Most become hermits and street people. Not all are violent but some of them can easily be provoked or radicalized into violence. Television 24 hour news stations don't help with their incessant coverage of acts of terror and violence turning them into entertainment reality shows for ratings.
There is a news story about a mother who buried her newborn baby alive. Fortunately the baby was found before the baby died and will recover. His mother will be charged with attempted murder and child abuse/endangerment. Thank God what she did wasn't legal. But if she had chosen to murder or attempt to murder her unborn child by going to an abortion clinic, there are no laws preventing it. There is simply no logic in pro-choice, pro-abortion politics and practice.
The Church under Pope St. John Paul II and now Pope Francis sees the necessity to be logical and consistent in our pro-life teachings to the point of renouncing now even the states right to the death penalty for hardened criminals or criminals such as on the one in Colorado Springs. The consistent ethic of life is good and sorely needed in our world today.
Laws need to be enforced that protect even those who kill under the protection of the law, those who assist in the death penalty and those who work in abortion clinics. Laws, however, need to be enacted and then enforced to shut down all death mills, abortion clinics and death row.
The Catholic Church is pro-life and she means it from womb to tomb!
