Abortionists, you know, hide behind euphemisms. They would never say, “Kill your unborn baby.” Rather its “investigate your medical options,” “dispose of the products of conception,” “terminate the pregnancy,” and “exercise your freedom of choice.”

I recently read a chilling story about a hypothetical organization which would, for a fee, enable parents to do away with their unwanted child, up to age 9, or, as they so nicely phrased it, “Terminate the latent maturity of a youngling.”

A woman, they said, should have the freedom to determine what is to be done with the products of her body. Should she come to the agonizing decision that the youngling was not of the desired quality, was not developing satisfactorily, or was a career impediment, the Reproductive Control Association would neatly and discretely dispatch the youngling and even arrange for its personal belongings to be removed and the room redecorated and turned into a hobby center.

Pope Benedict XVI will arrive in the United States today and celebrate his birthday at the White House tomorrow. (They won’t say if they’re having a birthday cake for him!) The 81-year-old pontiff is widely recognized as a brilliant theologian and a gentle yet strong spiritual leader. In his address to his Brothers and Sisters in the United States a few days ago he said: “I am coming, sent by Jesus Christ, to bring you his word of life.” I know of no organization that speaks out more strongly in defense of human life than the Catholic Church and it is expected that Benedict may have things to say about abortion, euthanasia, and homosexuality. Abortion and euthanasia are obviously deadly, and homosexual acts are both sterile and hazardous to health.

I read in Christian Newswire on April 11 that the Pope knows first hand what happens when a society refuses to defend the most defenseless of its citizens. “As a boy of fourteen, Joseph Ratzinger [now Benedict XVI] had a cousin who had been born with Down’s Syndrome, only a bit younger than himself. In 1941, German state “therapists” came to the boy’s house and probably informed the parents of the government regulation that prohibited mentally handicapped children from remaining in their parents’ home. In spite of the family’s pleas, the representatives of the Nazi state took the child away. The Ratzinger family never saw him again. Later the family learned that he had ‘died,’ most likely murdered, for being merely ‘undesirable,’ a blemish in the race, and a drain on the productivity of the nation. This was Joseph Ratzinger’s first experience of a murderous philosophy that asserts that some people are disposable.”
