Mother: "It`s my body!"
BABY: "NO! IT`S MY BODY!"
Choice is possible only when all the alternatives we face are
morally valid. When the "choice" is between letting an innocent
human being live or killing him, only one morally valid position
is possible. The alternative is the satanic act of taking an
In the area of life and death, "choice" is a misplaced word. If
we`re going to choose well, then we can choose only the good, the
true, the beautiful - life. To choose against the good, the true,
the beautiful, and life, is to turn against right reason, public
order and common decency - against our very selves. Not even that
Paladin of death, Jack Kevorkian, would associate himself with
the slogan "Choose Death"!
The right of a woman to control her own body is precisely the
right that the Supreme Court of Canada created in 1988. But it
is a false and poisonous right. What legitimate right requires
for its exercise the infliction of pain and, further, that
everytime it is exercised someone dies?
We Knights often hear advocates of choice fervently proclaim that
it`s up to each and everyone of us to determine for ourselves if
abortion is right or wrong. This kind of ridiculous rejection of
an objective standard of right and wrong would logically prevent

What we are seeing today is the fundamental dishonesty of
refusing to let words have their meaning. In fact, as has been

killing of other people not being a matter of choice.

To be pro-choice is to want to decide who is human or a person.
Who could possible want to live by such anti-social moral
principles? Sadly, for Canadians, it would appear an increasing
number of people. For too long, we Knights have allowed many of
our Christian brothers and sisters to cherish superstition in the
face of scientific and moral truth. Let`s not be afraid to speak
out anymore and let`s not miss any opportunity to hurl this
prevailing evil, pro-choice philosophy back to hell where it came
