I commend Gov. Bobby Jindal for signing the landmark abortion bills on Tuesday that significantly tighten the state’s regulations on abortionists and their practices.
Science clearly tells us that full human life begins at conception with the formation of a genetically complete, self-directing human entity, the embryo. Life does not result from the organism when it has been built up, but rather the vital principle builds up the organism of its own body. This was established 120 years ago by Wilhelm His, the father of human embryology.
Legalized abortion is a true disaster that has been unleashed throughout the world and is turning it into a planet of death. Abortion affects not only the unborn child, but also the mother who has conceived and all the people involved (i.e., the baby’s father, the grandparents, health care workers). Since the legalization of abortion the population has been prematurely aging and is dying of sadness and despair.
Legalized abortion is a “right” protected by a false freedom that leads women to do violence against their own bodies. Psychologically, each one of these mothers will be wounded for life. They will succeed in removing “something” that today she find bothersome, but she will not be able to remove from her mind and heart what she has done. To choose to extinguish in cold blood a life given by God, to reduce to dust and ashes the body of a human being made in His image and likeness, should make us shudder.
With respectful and cordial best wishes I remain,
