The Catholic Church has been and remains staunchly pro-life.
The Church’s position on abortion is that it is an “intrinsic evil,” which means no extenuating circumstance or rationale can mitigate against the intentional killing of an unborn human being a mortal sin. In the words of the Church’s Catechism:
If anything in the object of the act is morally evil, then the act is ordered toward evil; it is then an intrinsically evil act. It is never moral to intentionally choose any intrinsically evil act, regardless of the intended end (the purpose or reason for choosing the act) and regardless of the circumstances (the reasonably anticipated consequences).
But a Catholic university in Maryland, Mount St. Mary’s University, actually has invited pro-abort Mark Shriver from the Kennedy clan with deceptive Kennedyish good-looks to be its commencement speaker.
Below is a message from TFP Student Action:
Pro-life students are bewildered.
Because Mount St. Mary’s University — a Catholic institution in Emmitsburg, Maryland — has picked notorious pro-abortion promoter Mark Shriver as its commencement speaker on May 11, 2019.
But this is why Mr. Shriver is NOT a role model for students:
- NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland gave Mark Shriver a 100% approval rating for his pro-abortion record when he served as a member of the Maryland House of Delegates.
- In an interview with The Washington Post, Mr. Shiver said: “… I will continue to fight for a women’s right to choose [abortion] …”
- Mr. Shriver is the CEO of Save the Children, a pro-contraception organization with ties to Planned Parenthood.
However, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has stated that the “Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”
Urge Mount St. Mary’s to drop Mark Shriver like a hot potato and replace him with a commencement speaker who loves God and fights for the right to life.
Every pro-lifer is invited to join this peaceful protest.
