Voting 101 🗳
From its conception, the child has the right to life. Direct abortion, that is, abortion willed as an end or as a means, is a “criminal” practice (GS 27 § 3), gravely contrary to the moral law. The Church imposes the canonical penalty of excommunication for this crime against human life.
Because it should be treated as a person from conception, the embryo must be defended in its integrity, cared for, and healed like every other human being.
You shall not kill. You have heard that it was said to the men of old, “You shall not kill: and whoever kills shall be liable to judgment.” But I say to you that every one who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment.
“Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being.”
The witness of sacred history
In the account of Abel’s murder by his brother Cain, Scripture reveals the presence of anger and envy in man, consequences of original sin, from the beginning of human history. Man has become the enemy of his fellow man. God declares the wickedness of this fratricide: “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.”
The covenant between God and mankind is interwoven with reminders of God’s gift of human life and man’s murderous violence:
“For your lifeblood I will surely require a reckoning… . Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for God made man in his own image.”
Scripture specifies the prohibition contained in the fifth commandment: “Do not slay the innocent and the righteous.” The deliberate murder of an innocent person is gravely contrary to the dignity of the human being, to the golden rule, and to the holiness of the Creator.

Hi👋 I’m Austin, • • **a…

Hi👋 I’m Austin,

• **a little about me ** I was born to my Jewish mother and came into the Church while serving in the military at Camp Lejeune, NC in 2003. I have been in and out of formation to the priesthood over the past twelve years and love living life to the fullest. I’m not perfect, but trying to do my little part to bring joy and truth to our Church. I love connecting with new people and am always open to dialogue and debate – it’s good to discuss opposing views. I travel a lot and go to a lot of @starbucks because I know what I’m getting and people send me a lot of gift cards – so yes, I know they suck in some serious ways – which is why I always am willing to discuss prolife issues loudly when visiting with people at a Starbucks. Coming into the Church is the greatest thing to ever happen to me and I want to live my life only for the benefit of others to see how the Eucharist is the key to living a truly happy life this side of Heaven. Big things are in store this year and I am excited to share them with you as they become public! So lets connect! Pax! {{ 📸: @dcnjgk }}
P.S. doesn’t drink coffee 🤣

@backinfebruary_ 🤰❣️👶
Motherhood has been my most fulfilling endeavor. In every way possible, it transformed me into a better human being and cultivated a selflessness that was long overdue. I was not one of those day-dreamers for having children and I wasn’t sure what kind of mother I would be, but when it happened, I felt like I was simply made for it. Every evening, I peak (or crawl) into my daughter’s crib, and I gently trace the profile of her nose. Because of my journey, I often imagine what my life would look like without her and each time I do, the imagining feels painful and I’m flooded with gratitude for her rising belly, her wild curly red hair, and her warm existence.
Read the rest of my interview over at the @mothergoodco blog! ✨
And yes, this is my belly five days before I gave birth. Not pictured: my bathing suit swallowed up by that BUMP 🤰🏼

Abby Johnson has always been fiercely determined to help women in need. This desire is what led Abby to a career with Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider, and caused her to flee the organization, becoming an outspoken advocate for the pro-life movement.

During her eight years with Planned Parenthood, Abby quickly rose through the organization’s ranks and became a clinic director. However, Abby became increasingly disturbed by what she witnessed. Abortion was a product Planned Parenthood was selling, not an unfortunate necessity they were fighting to decrease. Still, Abby loved the women that entered her clinic and her co-workers. Despite a growing unrest within her, she stayed on and strove to serve women in crisis.

All of that changed on September 26, 2009 when Abby was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. She watched in horror as a 13 week baby fought for, and ultimately lost, its life at the hand of the abortionist.

At that moment, she fully realized what abortion actually was and what she had dedicated her life to. As it washed over Abby, a dramatic transformation had occurred. Desperate and confused, Abby sought help from a local pro-life group. She swore that she would begin to advocate for life in the womb and expose abortion for what it truly is.

Planned Parenthood did not take Abby’s departure sitting down. The organization is fully aware the workers who leave are their greatest threat. They took immediate action to silence Abby with a gag order and brought her to court. The lawsuit was quickly seen as the sham it was and it was ultimately thrown out of court.

The media was, and continues to be, intensely interested in Abby’s story as well as her continued efforts to advocate for the unborn and help clinic workers escape the abortion industry. She is a frequently requested guest on Fox News and a variety of other shows. She also the author of the nationally best-selling book, Unplanned, which chronicles both her experiences within Planned Parenthood and her dramatic exit.

What took place in this room was almost indescribable. The unity, the sorrow, the mourning, the repentance… our desire to see abortion put to an end cried out to the mercy of Jesus… and He heard us. We will never be the same. Our country will soon see the effects of this day.

“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable.” (CCC 2271)

EVERY. SINGLE. DEMOCRAT. voted “NO” for medical care for babies that survive abortion!!! 🤯😤
Today, the United States Senate voted on an anti-infanticide bill introduced by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The legislation needed 60 votes to pass, and it failed by a vote of 53 in favor and 44 against. The bill stated that “if an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.”
“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.”
—Pope Saint John Paul II
