Scripture and preborn babies

A commenter who perhaps likes to needle a bit claims that "abortion seems not to bother [Jesus] at all." The commenter also indicates that he does not think Catholics read the Bible.

For all of us, here is a link to a page with many links to articles about Scripture and abortion:

Also for all of us, here is a link to an article by Father Frank Pavone, founder of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life, and of Priests for Life, entitled, "The Bible's Teaching Against Abortion."

By the way, the divinely inspired authors of the New Testament, and their translators, use the Greek word "brephos" and the Latin word "infans" for babies inside and outside the womb. They rightly see no difference between babies born and preborn.

We all ought to meditate on the Annunciation, and the wonderful interaction between preborn Baby Jesus and preborn Baby John the Baptist, and their mothers, Mary and Elizabeth.

Just the very fact that Jesus came to us as a preborn Baby ought to tell us something about what God thinks about the sanctity of life, the right to life and the evil of abortion.

Actually, the bible reading remark is just the repeating of a constant Protestant jab at you guys.

Dear Hoodlum,

Thanks for being interested in this blog.

You know, answers do exist for the "constant Protestant jabs" that people have.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
