Is it a mortal sin to vote for a pro-abortion candidate?
Except in the case in which a voter is faced with all pro-abortion candidates (in which case, as explained in question 8 above, he or she strives to determine which of them would cause the let damage in this regard), a candidate that is pro-abortion disqualifies himself from receiving a Catholic’s vote. This is because being pro-abortion cannot simply be placed alongside the candidate’s other positions on Medicare and unemployment, for example; and this is because abortion is intrinsically evil and cannot be morally justified for any reason or set of circumstances. To vote for such a candidate even with the knowledge that the candidate is pro-abortion is to become an accomplice in the moral evil of abortion. If the voter also knows this, then the voter sins mortally.

The film is the shocking true story of the investigation and trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell – his 30 year killing spree and the political and media establishment that tried to cover it up. Originally investigated for illegal prescription drug sales, a raid by DEA, FBI & local law enforcement revealed crimes they could not have expected within the clinic.
Based on the NY Times Bestseller — Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer.
Almost 30,000 people donated over $2.3m in 45 days. When it ended it was the most successful crowdfunding campaign on the Indiegogo website. We want to thank all of our funders who helped make this project such a success. We literally could not have done it without you. This is your movie.
The @gosnell_movie is based on The New York Times best-selling book Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer written by producers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer. The book became especially controversial when The New York Times initially refused to feature it on its bestsellers list despite sales figures that revealed it should be on the list.
The @nytimes admitted they adjust the list as an “editorial decision”.

Ben Shapiro has emphasized the fact that abortion is often seen as a tidy, clinical procedure in which no violence occurs, which is far from the truth. Taking on arguments in favor of late-term abortion, he stated, “I want you to draw me what you think an abortion looks like. It’s not waving a magic wand, and it’s not getting rid of a cluster of cells that mean nothing. I want you to sit there and draw what it looks like when a baby is cut into pieces and removed from the womb. I would like to see that.”

Sad but true.. It’s sad when people care more about animals than actual human beings.
“Animals are God’s creatures. He surrounds them with his providential care. By their mere existence they bless him and give him glory. Thus men owe them kindness. We should recall the gentleness with which saints like St. Francis of Assisi or St. Philip Neri treated animals.” -CCC 2416
At the same time, it also cautions us. It states, “One can love animals; [but] one should not direct to them the affection due only to persons.” -CCC 2418

TAKE ACTION: Stop California from turning college campuses into abortion centers!
All colleges will soon be forced to dispense abortion pills for students to induce their own abortions. This puts young women at risk. Click the link in our bio @liveactionorg to STOP SB 320.

Abortions at any stage take a toll on everyone involved- the mother, the father, the clinic workers, and the doctor. For example, one abortionist from #PlannedParenthood discusses his ambivalence:
“This can burn you out very, very quickly…not so much by the physical labor as the emotional part of what’s going on. When you do an ultrasound, particularly if you have children, and you see a fetus there, kicking, moving, living, doing things that your own child does, bringing its thumb to its mouth, and things like that- it’s difficult. Then, after the procedure, sometimes we have to actually look at the specimen, and you see arms and legs and things like that torn off…It does take an emotional toll.” -Abortionist Dr. Ed Jones

The recently announced Title X regulations would prevent abortion vendors, like Planned Parenthood, from operating a family planning program in facilities geared toward ending life and would make abortion counseling optional (not required) but would not allow for abortion referral. We are grateful to President Trump for holding to his promise to save lives from abortion.

PROMISE KEPT! The #Trump administration on Friday announced a plan to ensure that #TitleX family planning funding does not go to programs or facilities that promote or perform #abortions, #EWTN News has learned.
The measure would dramatically curtail federal funding to #abortion providers, including #PlannedParenthood.
According to a Trump administration official, the Health and Human Services Department will file a proposal with the Office of Management and Budget to ensure that abortion is not treated as a method of family planning under Title X.
While federal law currently prohibits money received through the Title X Family Planning Grant Program from being used for abortion, #prolife advocates have long voiced concern that this regulation is not always enforced.
The proposal will require a strict physical and financial line of separation between Title X programs and any program or facility that performs abortion, or supports or refers for abortion as a family planning method, the official said.
It will not decrease the amount of Title X funding, which annually provides $260 million for family planning purposes, including contraception, pregnancy testing, and infertility treatments.
The new rule is based off a regulation issued by President Ronald Reagan, which was upheld by the Supreme Court, but was later reversed by President Bill Clinton. The new regulation differs from that of the Reagan era in that it will not ban Title X recipients from counseling clients about abortion.
The Trump administration official said the proposal will aid in transparency and integrity, allowing better monitoring of Title X fund recipients. It will also require Title X recipients to document how they follow state laws on reporting suspected cases of sexual assault, incest and rape.
Planned Parenthood would not explicitly be defunded under the new proposal. However, it would be required to separate abortion from its services in order to continue receiving Title X funds.
Last year, Trump signed a repeal of an #Obama-era regulation which had prohibited states from denying federal funds to health clinics solely on the grounds that they provided abortions.

Two organizations that worked with Planned Parenthood to distribute the parts of aborted fetuses to researchers admitted to breaking fetal tissue laws in a lawsuit settled with the Orange County District Attorney’s office Friday.
DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, two sister companies, agreed to a settlement that comes with an admission of liability after the district attorney’s office brought a civil lawsuit against the companies in 2016, prosecutors announced.
The settlement terms dictate that the two companies must close and stop operating their businesses in California within a two to four-month period. The companies also must pay out $7.8 million in the form of donations and biological materials to a medical school’s scientific teaching institution as well as paying $195,000 in civil penalties.
The DA said the settlement seized all profits from DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, which they got by illegally selling fetal tissue.
The two companies worked as the go-between between abortion clinics and scientists who wanted to use the fetal tissue to help with their research, according to the lawsuit. They sold fetal tissues for up to a $1,100 per vial between 2009-2015, prosecutors added.
“The companies also regularly offered ‘sales’ pricing promotions, including, for example, a ‘25% off’ summer sale and ‘25% off’ fall promotion in 2013. Sales staff was given wide flexibility in using discounts in order to close a sale, because they all knew they still ended up ‘on top.‘”
