Kerry WRONG on abortion

Catholics for Kerry posts the following in regards to the USCCB survey for the presidential candidates. It is, I believe, their answers for Senator Kerry and not his own answers to the survey since neither he nor President Bush responded.

2. How will we protect the innocent in our midst~innocent unborn children? How can our nation not turn to violence to solve some of it's more difficult problems~abortion to deal with difficult pregnancies; the death penalty to combat crime; euthanasia and assisted suicide to deal with the burdens of age, illness, and disability, and war to address international disputes?

RIGHT: Kerry opposes the use of the death penalty in all cases except convicted terrorists.
Right: John Kerry supports social programs which give women the choice to have their babies.
Right: John Kerry supports multilateralism to build strong effective global institutions to combat global problems.


Notice how they do not touch euthanasia? And they use the unfounded supply-side argument to fight abortion which not even Senator Kerry touts.

President Bush is RIGHT on opposing abortion, euthanasia, human cloning, and limiting embryonic stem cell research. Kerry Catholics know and it amazing how they ignore or hide Senator Kerry's disregard for the teachings of the Catholic Church in re: to life.

I agree that Kerry is blatantly disregarding the fundamental teachings of his own church on the key moral issues of our time--abortion, life, and marriage. A really good resource has just come out for those of us who don't like to read and only look at images flashing in front of us--it's the 8-minute video edition of the Voter's Guide for Serious Catholics, from Catholic Answers. Check it out at:

I think anyone watching it should find it very insightful to help properly form ones' Christian conscience.

IMPEACH BUSH!
He has no right to spit in the face of all freedom and force warped ideas onto a people who disagree. An same with you. I'd like to see you (or let's even say your daughter, or neighbor's daughter) get raped at age 13 and get pregnant. Yes, it's possible. I want to know what your stand on abortion would be then. And as for gay marriage: who the fuck do you think you are (or Bush, for that matter) to push retarded ideas onto people such as no homosexual marriage? Sure, marriage started as something religiously based, blah, blah, blah. . . but now, right here, right now, marriage has turned into something completely different. It is legal protection of both the people in the relationship if anything ever happens. Homosexuality is not a choice. It is in one's genes and they cannot help it.

It's the same as a person not being able to control their ethnicity or gender!! So, denying homosexuals the right to marriage is completely wrong. Even if it's personally not a choice that you would ever make, you (and whoever runs the goddamned country) needs to recognize that gays should always have the option to marry.

No, I am not a homosexual, no, I would never get an abortion. But at least I can open my eyes wide enough to be able to see the whole picture! Don't be so narrow-minded!

If I had a daughter and she was raped and became pregnant, my hope and prayer would be that she would carry the child, and I believe she would. I raise my children to respect life including the unborn. And as long as they do not listen to people like you she has a good chance to realize that truth. This unborn child would be innocent. Why should he/she be punished for the rape. The system will take care of the rapist. I will take care of my child and my grandchild. If that means raising him/her myself, so be it. If that means adoption, fine. But the child deserves to live.

Same-sex marriage would be determental for the simple fact that children need a mom AND a dad. The following articles give one a taste of the dangers ahead.

No one has proven homosexuality to be genetic. How do you explain those who were and now after treatment are not? Suggest you read the Catholic Medical Assoc. paper, Hope and Responsibility (http://www.cathmed.org/publications/homosexuality.html) for more information.

There's more to this debate then getting raped and becoming pregnant and the claim homosexuality is genetic. I hope the above opens YOUR eyes to broadens YOUR mindset. God Bless.

So, an illegitimate child born outta wedlock, perhaps to a mother that cannot support him/her, is AOK with you? You gonna put up the money to support all them children of rape victims? You gonna punish the rapist with capital punishment, like yer beloved Bushy supports? Don't you see something ironical in that?

when he ran in 1978 bush was pro-choice...

The Avalanche-Journal reported: "Bush said he opposes the pro-life amendment favored by Reese and favors leaving up to a woman and her doctor the abortion question. 'That does not mean I'm for abortion,' he said."

When Roe was decided I was in college, and I don't know if the Popes opinion came out right away or if I was just to entrenched in my young life to realize he had said anything about it, but I too was pro choice then. The women's movement was getting moving strongly and most of the girls in my college were active participants. I wasn't thinking about the fetus being a baby at that time, and I had two friends that had almost immediately in those early months gone to have an abortion. I went with one of them. She was never the same after that. I tried to talk her out of it, because something told me she was wrong to do this, but I couldn't. She had no one else to help her, so I went with her. Everytime a guy touched her after that she thought she was pregnant. She suffered severe depression for years. She alienated her friends. She never had another child. Planned Parenthood showed a movie while we were there, and in the movie it told you don't feel guilty and other things about the procedure, and watching that movie I felt like I was being manipulated and I wanted to scream out.. don't do it don't do it. The procedure cost 325.00. I also think that many people must remember the other proganda of the 70's and that is that the world was over populated and that WE had to do something about it or we would all starve to death and other such maladies. Just as the y2k baloney, the same can be said of this. These were part of the influences that gave women this idea that that needed power and that we should have this so called choice. Young people sometimes forget when they first are on their own that they are not in charge. Age 18 provides a lot of freedom for them so they think that they can control a lot of things, but again, they forget who is in charge, it isn't us, it is God. He decides who gets pregnant. He gives us all we have. It was after that experience that I remember reading about the Pope and the strong ruling he felt about abortion. Excommunication. I vowed that I would work to change that law, and I have NEVER stopped. I ask you to let God handle this, not the law. He should decide who gets to be born, not us. As Cain murdered his own brother Abel, please do not let us be worse and murder our own children.
