Here’s something – the way Steph puts it is that it is a choice to kill. The issue for the pro-life people is that the baby is not given its proper respect in that it is a human being in a very early stage and has the right to life whereas the pro-choice people just want the woman to be able to choose if she can have an abortion or not – to kill the human living inside her.
What the bishop is saying is that people who support the choice to kill innocent people should not be allowed communion because the Catholic faith does not believe in killing the innocent.
Essentially a person does not have the “right” to choose to murder another because that person can no longer deal with or doesn’t want that person around. It’s just ludicrous.
Also, no offence, but I do not understand how it is feminine to want to have the choice to kill your unborn child.
