“I do not want to punish aching mankind, I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart. I use punishment when they themselves force Me to do so; My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice.” (Diary, 1588)
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has called abortion an “intrinsic evil” in our society, the ending of which ought to be among the highest priorities for Catholics today. Approximately 25 percent of Americans are churchgoing Catholics, yet the most recent polls show that only 5 percent of Americans today look upon the protection of the lives of unborn children as the most important issue in the upcoming presidential and congressional elections. Something is deeply wrong here. We Catholics need to wake up — and what happened in St. Faustina’s time can be a “cautionary tale” in this regard. God is not going to let this kind of indifference to the “slaughter of the innocents” going on in our midst carry on indefinitely. If we want America to continue to be blessed and to be a beacon of freedom and human rights for the world, then we each need to do our part to help protect the human rights of “the least of these my brethren” (Mt 25:46) in our midst.
The very future of our country may depend on it.
“All would wish to be saved and to enjoy the glory of paradise; but to gain heaven, it is necessary to walk in the straight road that leads to eternal bliss. This road is the observance of the divine commandments. Hence, in his preaching, the Baptist exclaimed: Make straight the way of the Lord.” -St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

She [Sr. Faustina] wrote in her diary that Jesus Himself said that He was about to destroy one of the most beautiful cities of our country like Sodom was destroyed on account of the crimes perpetrated there [Diary, entry 39]. Having read about these things in the Diary I asked her what does the prophecy mean? She answered confirming what she wrote and replying to a further question of mine, on account of what kind of sins God was going to inflict these punishments. She answered: especially for the killing of infants not yet born, the most grievous crime of all.
This special concern for the killing of unborn children fits with what St. Faustina wrote about mysterious bodily pains she experienced, which no medicines could relieve, and which she offered up to heaven, “in order to offer reparation to God for the souls murdered in the wombs of wicked mothers” ( Diary, entry 1276).
Her confessor [Fr. Sopocko] later discovered that, between the First and Second World Wars, the city of Warsaw, which as the capital of Poland, was also one of the great capitals of abortion in the world! While Sister Faustina lived and prayed, that city was spared. But hardly a year after her death, Poland was invaded, and by the time the war was over, Warsaw was almost completely destroyed [much like Sodom and Gomorrah!].

Oregon is on the path to become the first state to offer free abortions – even sex-selective abortion and late-term abortion – at taxpayers’ expense. Thousands more preborn children are estimated to die. Oregon is making it easier to kill a child rather than finding solutions to help women choose life. I discuss with Martha MacCallum.
Thank you @lilaroseofficial for speaking up on behalf of all Catholics
“America you are beautiful … and blessed … . The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life.” -St. Pope John Paul II

Saying you’re Catholic and pro-abortion is like saying you’re a pacifist and pro-war.
It’s like saying you’re a vegetarian but you still eat meat.
It’s like saying you’re Mormon but don’t believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet.
It’s so integral to the Catholic faith to respect the basic humanity of every life from conception to natural death, but for some reason people keep insisting on calling themselves Catholic without even fulfilling this basic criterion.
The Catholic Church has many issues that are up for debate, but the morality of abortion is not one and will never be of them.
I’m Catholic and I am pro-choice.
I believe that women should be able to do whatever they’d like to their bodies, considering that its theirs.
If you were Catholic, you’d believe that our lives begin at conception, that deliberately ending a child’s life is a grave evil that deserves eternal damnation, and that your body is not yours, but under God’s sovereignty. Nobody is exempt from this, and Catholic doctrine is not up for debate. You are not in communion with the Catholic Church.
I’m Catholic and I am pro-choice.
I believe that women should be able to do whatever they’d like to their bodies, considering that its theirs. I’m not Catholic, but I take Communion anyway because I believe my opinions are more important than God.
There. Fixed it for you, honey.
Ugh even Catholics 🙁
I’ll say it again, you cannot say you’re pro-choice and be catholic, and that’s not even an opinion. It’s actually an excommunicable offense to support abortions in any way.
