“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: An Absolute Disgrace

In my many years of following the Pro-life issue, I have seen many and all pro-abortion politicians squirm, weasel, deflect, hide behind euphemisms and try to confuse the issue when trying to explain why they support killing babies inutero. This morning, on Meet the Press, I heard House Speaker Nancy Pelosi give the most disgraceful and dark answer that I have ever heard in my life.

Tom Brokaw: …"I if [Obama] were to come to you and say ‘help me out here, Madam Speaker, when does life begin,’ what would you tell him?

Nancy Pelosi: "I would say that as an ardent practicing Catholic this is an issue that I have studied for a long time, and what I know is over the centuries the doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition. And St. Augustine said three months. We don’t know. The point is it that it shouldn’t have an impact on a woman’s right to chose."

Pelosi was exploiting a Saint of the Catholic Church to defend her political expedient view allowing babies to be burned alive and dismembered to death in the womb. I can not say anything else but she is an evil woman who has no fear of her God. I do not use the term evil lightly or often. There is no other explanation for this.

Here is Pelosi's e-mail for anyone who wants to set her straight about what St. Augustine would think: sf.nancy@mail.house.gov

Postnote 8/25: The Catholic League today issued a press release on this topic saying the have sent Nancy Pelosi the book, Catholicism for Dummies. She should really read it before she opens her mouth on Catholicism again.

Wow, Pelosi really has no idea. If she has really studied this issue for a long time, I would think she'd be able to draw the correct conclusion that life begins at conception. What is the deal with these Catholic democrats wanting to mislead others?

What did St Augustine actually say? Was that an outright lie or a twisting of words or what? I'm confused.

St. Augustine said that he thought life began at the time of animation. He was contemplating miscarriages. This may have been the best someone could have concluded back at the time of Augustine with no medical understanding.

Pelosi complete ignores the medical advancements since Augustine. She bastardizes Augustine's lack of medical knowledge to warply validate her killing of innocent human life, but completely does not reference the present day Magesterium of the Church.

She is truly an a le carte Catholic. She picks and chooses the stuff she needs to continue her culture of death life, and babies die all along the way.

If life begins at conception, what happens to the all the fertilized eggs that don't attach to the uterine wall and pass out of the female?

Also, I'm assuming that the soul enters the fertilized at the same time life begins, so what happens to the soul? Does it get recycled and re-used on another egg or is it lost forever?

Or does God know ahead of time which eggs won't make it and doesn't insert the soul? If that's the case, doesn't he do the same thing for aborted embryos and fetuses?

People who claim life begins at conception while simultaneously advocating pro-life largely on religious grounds have a lot of questions to answer.

I appreciate your question and see you are genuinely trying to understand the Church's position.

I am in no way a biologist, but I believe you are understanding this incorrectly.

There is not dozen of eggs being fertilized by dozen of sperms, and then one makes it to implantation. One egg is released by the female and if it is fertilized it eventually implants in the uterus.

At the moment of conception life is present and that life has a soul and deserves protection. Aborted fetus do have souls as they are human life.

Hopefully I answer some of your questions.

You are mostly correct, but, a fertilized egg does not necessarily implant.
