Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

Essential thinking for reading Catholics.

"...or has the world always been like this and I've been too wrapped up in myself to notice?"

Just to prove that Darwin got it almost exactly bass ackwards, the following bit of news has just assaulted my eyeballs:

"Doctors: let us kill disabled babies"

Let's set aside the whole Master Race/"I heard this same $#!+ at Nuremberg" aspect (itself a very rich vein to mine) for now. The real money quote is this pearl:

The college's submission was welcomed by John Harris, a member of the Government's Human Genetics Commission and professor of bioethics at Manchester University.
"We can terminate for serious fetal abnormality up to term but cannot kill a newborn," he said. "What do people think has happened in the passage down the birth canal to make it OK to kill the fetus at one end of the birth canal but not at the other?
" (Emphasis mine.)

Well. Isn't this what I have been telling you since forever? This morally and ethically centered luminary has accidentally swerved into the hideous truth about abortion. Especially in teh case of perfectly healthy babies who have committed the capital offense of being inconveniently conceived. What, precisely, makes it OK to kill a baby in utero and proscribed (at least in civilized countries) ex utero, just a few inches away? That's right kids, not.a.thing. The child whose life is in danger of a contract hit in the womb is exactly the same child after seeing the light of day (no mean feat, that...esp. in certain corners of Europe).

What Mr. Harris has accidentally noted is what the abortion industry has been trying to hush up since Day One: It's the same baby, and his/her exact location doesn't matter when it comes to deciding when it's OK to kill him or her. (Hint: Never.)

Be it done to me according to Thy will, Lord...but if it's all the same to You, Judgment Day coming around 9:30am on the first Saturday of the month would surely be w elcome thing from my end.
