Hattip to Opinionated Catholic. Abortion Recovery International, a group dedicated to helping women heal from the trauma of abortion has proclaimed April as Abortion Recovery Awareness Month. Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana, has issued a proclamation, as has Governor Rick Perry of Texas. Bravo to the Governors! Hey Jenkins, if Notre Dame really needs to honor a politician, you need look no farther than Catholic convert Bobby Jindal!
I am not easily shocked after participating in the struggle against abortion since 1973, but this article did shock me. Taking pride in the deaths of millions of innocents each year? Jesus wept. The fight against abortion is the preeminent moral struggle of our time, first to save the lives of the most innocent among us, but second because of the damage that legal abortion does to our moral sense. If we take pride in abortion, is there any crime that we cannot, and will not, take pride in?
