Germany’s wolves in red (and pink) approve morning after pill February 21, 2013Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Abortion, asshatery, Basics, disaster, episcopate, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness.
I guess this has been news for a day or so, but I may as well jump on the bandwagons of disappointment, grief, and condmenation. What a scandal. And what usual sophistry – pretending the these magical morning after pills “only” work by stopping fertilization, when even the FDA recognizes that every morning after pill has an abortifacient component, which will prevent implantation after fertilization has occurred. Thus, the German bishops, and by extension the entire Church, are now complicit in murder. But at least they’ll get applause from the media, and those 5 star dinner party invitations are sure to come flowing in:
Germany’s Roman Catholic Church said on Thursday it had decided to permit certain types of “morning-after pill” for women who have been raped, after two Catholic hospitals provoked an outcry last month for refusing to treat a rape victim.The German Bishops’ Conference said church-run hospitals would now ensure proper medical, psychological and emotional care for rape victims – including administering pills that prevent pregnancy without inducing an abortion.Archbishop Robert Zollitsch said a four-day meeting of German bishops in the western town of Trier had “confirmed that women who have been victims of rape will get the proper human, medical, psychological and pastoral care”. [and have their babies killed]“That can include medication with a ‘morning-after pill’ as long as this has a prophylactic and not an abortive effect,” [this is impossible. See more ar Rorate Caeli] he said in a statement. “Medical and pharmaceutical methods that induce the death of an embryo may still not be used.”That means there is no change to the Catholic church’s ban on the so-called abortion pill based on the drug mifepristone or RU-486, and marketed as Mifegyne or Mifeprex
Here’s a question – why should countries like France with fewer practicing Catholics than LA or NY in the entire country merit multiple Cardinals? Why is Boston an Archdiocese, when it is half the size of Dallas? All nominally, who knows how many Catholics listed in these dioceses are actually practicing, but you get my point.
