Using the Texas Heartbeat Law as an excuse, an abortion business committed 67 abortions in just 17 hours. Whole Woman’s Health boasted of their achievement, telling the 19th, that this took place even though there was just one abortionist — an 80-year-old — available.
Marva Sadler, the director of clinical services, said they committed the rapid abortions with just eight people total on staff, rushing so they could complete the abortions before the Texas restriction on abortions a detectable heartbeat took effect. “We are not the bad guys here,” Sadler said she told her staff. “We are doing everything right and we’re going to help everybody that we can. If there’s someone that we can’t help, it’s not our fault.”
At that rate, Whole Woman’s Health was rushing women through abortions every 15 minutes — essentially, an abortion assembly line.
Though most people might see such large numbers of women feeling that abortion was their only option as a tragedy, those in the abortion industry seem to relish it. “For a moment they were able to savor it. Sadler looked at the doctor and told him physicians half his age wouldn’t have been able to do what he did,” the 19th reported. “Even if he only had performed one abortion, it would have been a victory, she said.”
The above comes from a Sept. 7 story on Live Action News.
This was a killing spree, a mass murder event hailed by abortion fanatics as necessary. Those who support such raw evil should be shunned as the lowest among us.
Why anyone on a Catholic site would disagree with this statement by Deus Vult is beyond me.
How do you pray for these souls? Can you do the requiem if they are not baptized?
serious ? — On the EWTN website, you will find all sorts of Pro-Life material, including prayers for aborted children. There are also many other sources you can contact, for all types of Pro-Life material, including prayers to say.
Yes, the Requiem may be prayed for these souls asking for God’s mercy: “Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.” God will hear the prayer and respond in mercy as He sees fit. The Catechism of the Catholic Church says in #848 848 “Although in ways known to himself God can lead those who, through no fault of their own, are ignorant of the Gospel, to that faith without which it is impossible to please him, the Church still has the obligation and also the sacred right to evangelize all men.” God works primarily through the sacraments instituted by Jesus, yet His mercy can extend beyond them in ways He has not made explicit in the gospels.
I have done several funerals for unbaptized infants, whether born or not yet born. There is a wonderful theological teaching of “The Church Supplies”, in which Grace covers the actions of those who are doing the best that they humanly can for others. For example, if an elderly Priest is celebrating Mass and through no fault of his own but because of dementia or something else forgets part of the Mass, even the Consecration, but his intent is to consecrate and it’s merely him intending to, but not remembering to say the words the Consecration takes place by the Power of the Holy Spirit working through an imperfect Priest (me included!). Now, I do not think I have ever done such a thing, but I witnessed as a Bishop did it. He forgot the Consecration. I touched his elbow and said “We have to start over”. He didn’t blink an eye. He just started over. He is a wonderful Bishop who would never do that on purpose. He is not personally to blame. I would have been had I not gently done what I did. But if he were alone and nobody stopped him the Mass would have been valid, because that was the intention of the Church and the intention of this Bishop his whole life.
Well, that’s fine if the good Bishop with dementia was alone, or with one of his priests, in a private Mass situation, who could help him, with a “do-over.” But parishioners should never be subjected to such tragically fraudulent, abusive situations, and should refrain from taking Communion in such a case. “Intention” is not good enough– except, between God and the cleric, who goofed. No, the Sacrament was not valid at all, and no one should pretend that it is, and take it. If this happenbed more than one time, with no correction– the cleric should be prohibited from saying Mass publicly, and have a priest assist him in saying only private Masses. All seven Sacraments are very exact, and never occur with “good intentions” or “wishful thinking.” Only with the priest or bishop doing the correct formula. If not, you have to completely re-do it.
You misunderstand ecclesia supplet. It doesn’t render invalid sacraments valid. It refers only to supplying jurisdiction or the faculty to perform a lawful ecclesial act in some circumstances where proper authorization cannot be obtained.
In the example you give of a priest neglecting to consecrate the Eucharist. The elements would remain unconsecrated due to defect of form. You completely misunderstand ecclesia supplet.
Is it possible to baptize a preborn child outside the womb (wether due to miscarriage or abortion) if the child is still alive?
I found this by Father Pavone
I found some prayers for aborted babies but I don’t know the safety of the sites so you can search for them. (I am not saying “google it” anymore because of the removal of the ads for abortion pill reversal.) .
Does the church supply an annulment when the bishop won’t give it to me? Is that how it works? I’m doing the best I humanly can but the bishop won’t let me marry again.
Totally off topic, but the information you provide the marriage tribunal must show grounds that the marriage was not valid. Look to the situation before vows were exchanged.
Consider if either party was 1 free to marry, 2 freely exchanged their consent, 3 intended to marry for life, be faithful and open to children, 4 intended the good of each other, and 5 whether your consent was given in the presence of witnesses before an authorized Church official. If any of these conditions was not met, you may have a case for annulment.
Your marriage is considered valid unless you can show proof it was not.
would be nice, I don’t quite understand your question but if your petition for annulment is rejected by the marriage tribunal in your diocese, you can appeal it.
How vile can a man be, to kill 67 innocent babies just to make his political statement, and to have others support him in doing so. If he repents, may God grant him mercy.
