PASTOR’S CORNER
The legalization of abortion in our nation was a worse mistake
than the legalization of the slave trade. It took the courage of
Abraham Lincoln and a civil war to correct the slavery mistake. What will it take to correct the abortion mistake? We
must pray, work and yes, vote, to end abortion. “How can you
simplify the abortion issue for those who think it’s hopelessly
complex? Think of the acronym SLED as a helpful reminder:
Size: Size doesn’t equal value. Do we really want to say that
large people are more human than small ones? Level of development: Should older children have more rights than their
younger siblings? Environment: Where you are has no bearing on who you are. Degree of dependency: If viability makes
us human, then all those who depend on insulin or kidney
medication are not valuable and we may kill them” (Scott
Klusendorf: www.prolifetraining.com). Although human beings differ with respect to talent, age, health and the extrinsic
dignity based on accomplishment, all human beings are equal
with respect to the intrinsic dignity of being created in God’s
image and likeness and are “endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness” (Thomas Jefferson). It is precisely this intrinsic
human dignity and the unalienable right to life which is violated in every elective abortion. God bless all who participated
in the campaign of 40 days of prayer for life. The Fall campaign is ended but the battle for life, liberty and justice for all
continues.
Blessings, Fr. John

RINCÓN DEL PÁRROCO
La legalización del aborto en nuestro país, fué un error mucho peor que la legalización del comercio de esclavos. Se
necesitó de la valentía de Abraham Lincoln y la guerra civil
para corregir el error de la esclavitud. ¿Qué será necesario
para corregir el error del aborto? Debemos orar, trabajar y
votar Sí, para poner fin al aborto. “¿Cómo puedes simplificar el problema del aborto para quienes piensan que es irremediablemente complejo? Piensa en las siglas MANG como
un recordatorio útil: Medida: La medida no iguala al valor.
¿Realmente queremos decir que las personas grandes son
más humanas que las pequeñas? Ambiente: No tiene que
ver sobre quién eres. Nivel de desarrollo: ¿Deberían los niños mayores tener más derechos que sus hermanos menores?
Grado de Dependencia: Si la viabilidad nos hace humanos,
entonces todos los que dependen de insulina o de tomar medicamentos para los riñones no son valiosos y podemos matarlos.” (Scott Klusendorf: www.prolifetraining.com). Aunque los seres humanos difieren en cuanto a talento, edad,
salud y dignidad intrinseca de ser creados a imagen y semejanza de Dios y están “dotados por su Creador con ciertos
derechos inalienables de la vida, la libertad y la búsqueda de
la felicidad” (Thomas Jefferson). Es precisamente esta intriseca dignidad humana y el derecho inalienable a la vida que
se viola en cada aborto electivo. Que Dios bendiga a todos
los que participaron en la campaña de 40 días de oración por
la vida. La campaña de Otoño ha terminado pero la batalla
por la vida, la libertad y la justicia para todos continúa.
Bendiciones P. John
