Abortion is darkest of the mortal sins

What is abortion? Abortion is the darkest of the darkest mortal sins. It is the most unnatural of all the unnatural perversions performed by human beings. It is the ultimate presence of evil within our souls. Evil doesn’t present itself like a bolt of lightning. It creeps into our souls bit by bit. It spreads like a slow-killing cancer. A cancer that we ignore until it is so pervasive that we feel helpless against it.

Most recently we have been presented with an evil that we can defeat. It is the governor’s Reproductive Rights Act shrewdly bundled into a women’s equality legislative proposal with nine other very acceptable proposals. Disapprove and nine good proposals are defeated. Approve and evil prevails. How can we defeat this evil presence? We can defeat it by casting it out.
