Remember, dear friends, that the only people in jail on the abortion issue today are pro-life women. We have all these abortion activists fearmongering that pro-lifers want to send women to jail. But today in Canada, it is two pro-life women who are doing time.
Remember Mary Wagner and Linda Gibbons and what they are doing, for all of us, following the call of their conscience.
Mary just responded to a letter I sent her and included a good quote:
The pursuit of [human perfection] scientifically defined and technically advanced, not only threatens to make us more intolerant of imperfection. It also threatens to sell short the true possibilities of human flourishing, which are to be found in love and friendship, work and play, art and science, song and worship… We triumph over nature’s unpredictabilities only to subject ourselves, tragically, to the still greater unpredictability of our capricious wills and our fickle opinions.” –Leon Kass
