A doctor’s experience: the evil of abortion

I think we can do better for women and for families. We are doing much better at Abria Pregnancy Resources where I am now medical director. I review daily prenatal ultrasounds from the Abria clinic office (across from Planned Parenthood on University Avenue). Women are counseled, supported, cared for and loved at Abria instead of being rushed into killing their child at the mega Planned Parenthood right across the street.

The year was 67 AD. St. Paul was in his mid-70s, an old man by First Century standards. He was in Rome, a bad place for Christians. The Roman Emperor Nero was waging a large scale persecution against Christians. Paul was in prison. Many other Christians had already been put to death, and Paul could see the handwriting on the wall. When he wrote, “The time of my dissolution is at hand” (2 Tm 4:6), “dissolution” means death. It was Paul’s way of saying that he knew that the time of his martyrdom was drawing ever nearer.

Give thanks to God!

One of the greatest miracles that Jesus performed was to cure ten lepers of their disease (Lk 17:11-19), and after having received such a tremendous gift from Jesus, only one of the ten came back to thank him. In disappointment Jesus asked, “Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?” (Lk 17:18).
