Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities: A Campaign in Support of Life In our present social context, marked by a dramatic struggle between the "culture of life" and the "culture of death", there is need to develop a deep critical sense, capable of discerning true values and authentic needs.
What is urgently called for is a general mobilization of consciences and a united ethical effort to activate a great campaign in support of life.
All together, we must build a new culture of life.
A Campaign in Support of Life to put forth "a precise and vigorous reaffirmation of the value of human life and its inviolability, and at the same time a pressing appeal addressed to each and every person, in the name of God: As pastors and teachers, we proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self, and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence.
A Consistent Ethic of Life A wide spectrum of issues touches on the protection of human life and the promotion of human dignity. It cannot tolerate bias and discrimination, for human life is sacred and inviolable at every stage and in every situation; it is an indivisible good" The Gospel of Life, no.
Among important issues involving the dignity of human life with which the Church is concerned, abortion necessarily plays a central role. Abortion, the direct killing of an innocent human being, is always gravely immoral The Gospel of Life, no.
It is imperative that those who are called to serve the least among us give urgent attention and priority to this issue of justice. Taken together, these diverse pastoral statements and practical programs constitute no mere assortment of unrelated initiatives but rather a consistent strategy in support of all human life in its various stages and circumstances.
To focus on the evil of deliberate killing in abortion and euthanasia is not to ignore the many other urgent conditions that demean human dignity and threaten human rights.
Opposing abortion and euthanasia "does not excuse indifference to those who suffer from poverty, violence and injustice. Any politics of human life must work to resist the violence of war and the scandal of capital punishment.
Any politics of human dignity must seriously address issues of racism, poverty, hunger, employment, education, housing and health care" Living the Gospel of Life, no.
We pray that Catholics will be advocates for the weak and the marginalized in all these areas. Pervasive Threats to Human Life Where does one begin? Today, when human rights are proudly proclaimed and the value of life itself given public affirmation, the most basic of all human rights, "the very right to life," "is being denied or trampled upon, especially at the more significant moments of existence: Sometimes very difficult or even tragic situations can be the basis for decisions made against life, circumstances that can diminish the personal culpability of those who make choices that in themselves are evil.
The question "Where does one begin? Thus some behaviors are always wrong, always incompatible with our love of God and the dignity of the human person.
Abortion, the direct taking of innocent human life prior to birth, is always morally wrong, as is the deliberate destruction of human embryos for any reason. Assisted suicide and euthanasia are not acts of mercy but acts that are never morally acceptable.
Direct attacks on innocent civilians during war and terrorist acts targeting noncombatants must always be condemned. Our concern is only intensified by the realization that a policy and practice that result in well over a million deaths from abortions each year cannot but diminish respect for life in other areas.
In this pastoral plan, then, "we are guided by a key insight regarding the linkage between abortion and these other important issues: Precisely because all issues involving human life are interdependent, a society which destroys human life by abortion under the mantle of law unavoidably undermines respect for life in all other contexts.
Likewise, protection in law and practice of unborn human life will benefit all life, not only the lives of the unborn" Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities: A Reaffirmation , 5. This is why we focus here on the pervasive threat to human life arising from the widespread recourse to abortion, from public policies that allow, encourage, and even fund abortion, and from a growing effort to promote the taking of human life through euthanasia.
The Legacy of Roe v. Wade and its companion decision Doe v. Bolton, and in so doing effectively removed every legal protection from human beings prior to birth.
The legacy of Roe is virtually incalculable. In its wake it has left death and sorrow and turmoil: Often they are carried out at the urging of fathers who, rather than protecting their child, believe their only responsibility is to help pay for an abortion.
And today, those who support and provide abortion freely acknowledge that killing is involved, and choices once treated as criminal and rejected by the common moral sense have become socially acceptable. Inthe Supreme Court reaffirmed Roe v.
It said also that "people have organized intimate relationships and made choices that define their views of themselves and their places in society in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail" Planned Parenthood v.
In other words, Americans had come to rely on legalized abortion as a backup for contraceptive failure. Inin Stenberg v. Carhart, the Court expanded the abortion liberty beyond killing in utero; it now wrapped in the mantle of the U. Constitution the practice of killing during the process of birth.As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from benjaminpohle.com Justice reform sounded like a good idea in Albania, which like many former communist countries, is dealing with the hangover from a decades-long legacy of corruption.
