Social Justice is from Womb to Tomb!

I’m sure Thomas Reese, SJ, Cardinal Cupich, Bishop McElroy, Fr. James Martin, SJ, and club are typing up a correction for Ms. Ratcliffe as we speak!  Wait!  What?!  No?  Surely they want to correct the error of her ways, right?  I mean, it rather messes up their seamless garment issue to have somebody actually expressing what most of the seamless garment crowd thinks anyway, right?  They’re supposed to be quiet about this, a concept clearly was lost on Ms. Ratcliffe:

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 3, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A representative from the George Soros-funded dissident group Catholics for Choice (CFC) said she supports Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, because “our Catholic social justice tradition compels us to stand with the poor and the most vulnerable in our society.”

So let’s just kill all their children.  No need to offer them real help.  Let’s just eliminate the poor and vulnerable children and call it social justice!  Nobody will notice that it’s largely genocide.

“Planned Parenthood does this every single day,” CFC’s Sara Ratcliffe told a Planned Parenthood rally on Capitol Hill Wednesday. “The Washington-led attacks against Planned Parenthood only serve to hurt the poorest and most rural in our communities.”

Yes, they do. Planned Parenthood eliminates (nice way of saying kills) minorities and the poor class. Every. Single. Day. By the thousands.

Planned Parenthood commits over 300,000 abortions annually, an act the authoritative teaching of the Church labels “intrinsically evil.”

It promotes and provides contraception and sterilization, both condemned by the Church. Planned Parenthood is also a leading source of sex education, encouraging children of “any age” to masturbate and teens to experiment with sadomasochism as well as other dangerous and bizarre sexual practices.

Details.  Details.  Surely there’s not a problem with Ms. Ratcliffe and “Catholics” for Choice dissenting from the teachings of the Church. I mean, if there was, I’m sure that the National catholic Reporter and America Magazine club would get on that and show the clear Church teaching on the subject. 

Come on, people! Catholicism isn’t a nationality.  It’s a belief.  If you don’t believe it, too bad, so sad, but let’s be just a little intellectually honest and admit that you don’t believe much, if anything, of what the Church actually teaches.  I realize that Satan’s big game is to divide from within but your slip is kind of showing, Sara. 

“Catholics in good conscience support access to reproductive health to the people who need it and Planned Parenthood provides it,” said Ratcliffe. “Catholics support the right for women to decide on their own healthcare based on their own conscience without interference. And Planned Parenthood helps us do that.”

Oh my ever loving goodness!  This gets so tedious, perpetually pointing out what would take a few seconds for any Catholic to find on Google.  First, would you like to quote a little Church teaching on that, Sara?  Didn’t think so.  I’m reasonably sure that you’d gladly quote Article 6, Section I, and say “Seeeeeee???” and just hope nobody reads on to Section II.  If you’re falling for it, please read just a tiny bit further (like the next citation)!

1783 Conscience must be informed and moral judgment enlightened. A well-formed conscience is upright and truthful. It formulates its judgments according to reason, in conformity with the true good willed by the wisdom of the Creator. The education of conscience is indispensable for human beings who are subjected to negative influences and tempted by sin to prefer their own judgment and to reject authoritative teachings.

So, no, Ms. Ratcliffe.  A GOOD conscience is a well-formed conscience formed around the Church’s teachings, not your will. It’s really a simple concept actually written out for you.  Stay with me here. Your opinions are not authoritative teachings.  A shocker!  I know!

Also, just so I’ve done my due diligence in clearing up your fallacies, Ms. Ratcliffe, you REALLY might want to read Section IV:

IV. ERRONEOUS JUDGMENT (AKA the part aimed squarely at Ms. Ratcliffe)

1790 A human being must always obey the certain judgment of his conscience. If he were deliberately to act against it, he would condemn himself. Yet it can happen that moral conscience remains in ignorance and makes erroneous judgments about acts to be performed or already committed.

1791 This ignorance can often be imputed to personal responsibility. This is the case when a man “takes little trouble to find out what is true and good, or when conscience is by degrees almost blinded through the habit of committing sin.”59 In such cases, the person is culpable for the evil he commits.

1792 Ignorance of Christ and his Gospel, bad example given by others, enslavement to one’s passions, assertion of a mistaken notion of autonomy of conscience, rejection of the Church’s authority and her teaching, lack of conversion and of charity: these can be at the source of errors of judgment in moral conduct.

1793 If – on the contrary – the ignorance is invincible, or the moral subject is not responsible for his erroneous judgment, the evil committed by the person cannot be imputed to him. It remains no less an evil, a privation, a disorder. One must therefore work to correct the errors of moral conscience.

1794 A good and pure conscience is enlightened by true faith, for charity proceeds at the same time “from a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith.“60 (So based on this, what is your conscience good and pure, Sara?)

The more a correct conscience prevails, the more do persons and groups turn aside from blind choice and try to be guided by objective standards of moral conduct.61

As Ratcliffe addressed the Planned Parenthood supporters, Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins shouted that one cannot be truly Catholic and pro-abortion. Hawkins’ voice can be heard in the distance in the video below. 

OK, Kristan’s a convert so I’m sure she might not be up on everything, but she’s in the same boat with a lot of other Catholics.  Just because you are a bad Catholic doesn’t mean you are not Catholic.  I’m a real stickler for this.  Ms. Ratcliffe could even renounce the Faith and she’d still be Catholic.  Baptism is an indelible mark.  Ms. Ratcliffe is most certainly a dissenting and poorly practicing Catholic, and if the clergy really loved her, they would’ve let her have it like most good parents would when their children stray toward danger.  Sadly, many ignore because it’s inconvenient, makes a news story they don’t want to be in, or simply doesn’t fit their seamless garment narrative.  Bad on them.  Obviously, this woman’s soul doesn’t mean as much to them as it should.  And then there’s the thousands of souls she leads astray everyday almost (just ignore this, you guys trying to wake her up) unchecked.  In fact, that’s why she’s able to do it.  Not on me!

“Equality, fairness, treating others with compassion, the right to social justice for everyone: these are Catholic values,” continued Ratcliffe. “These are what Catholics for Choice stands for, these are what Planned Parenthood stands for, and as Catholics, we stand with Planned Parenthood not in spite of our Catholic tradition but because of it.”

Equality, fairness, treating others with compassion for everyone except the truly most vulnerable – the completely defenseless human beings at both ends of life. If they’re inconvenient, they must go!  Sorry, sister. Social justice begins in the womb and ends in the tomb.  And please, you wouldn’t know “Catholic tradition” if it bit you in the behind.  You can’t really be this clueless, can you?  I suppose with the help of the American seamless (or is it more like seamy-ful?) hierarchy, you could be.  Sigh.

Ratcliffe used euphemisms like “each woman’s choice” and “access to reproductive health” rather than name abortion directly. Her speech didn’t mention God, any specific Catholic teachings, the Bible, or prayer.

I’m sure she wasn’t quoting the Catechism either.  As usual, she’s just hoping to steal as many souls as possible before people catch on.  The sad thing is that the people in desperate situations, the ones who need REAL help, the ones she tries desperately to convince that Planned Parenthood has their best interest at heart, are the victims of her spin job.  Thanks to all of you great people praying in front of Planned Parenthood as often as you can, offering true help to these potential victims!

  1. Oh my goodness, “the poorest and most rural in our communities” triggered something in my mind. You do realize that those poor rural folks talk funny and are probably where they are because they are…um, rather slow. At least I get hints of that attitude from people like Ms Ratcliffe.

    This just reminds me of the Kallikaks. My mom said they seriously taught about them when she was in Junior College back in the day.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kallikak_Family

    The guy who came up with his theory by studying the Kallikaks was Henry Goddard, a buddy of Margaret Sanger.

  2. “Let’s just eliminate the poor and vulnerable children and call it social justice!” Uh, everybody I know, and and have read about when they have defended PP because they were there for them at the time, were not poor and were not vulnerable. They made a choice that is protected by law. I’d be curious to see the actual numbers as they relate to socio economic status. It seems to me, there are an awful lot of children living in poverty, and with abuse, yet I don’t see most Catholics out there helping them. I see them condemning them for being homeless, mentally ill, etc. Before you condemn abortion, find a solution to those ills. I don’t see the men who deposit the sperm helping most of these woman and children either. Maybe we should get rid of government coverage of Viagra and Cialis.

    1. TT, if you read the comments by Sara Ratcliffe, these were her arguments I was quoting.

      Next, I’m not sure why anyone who was not poor and vulnerable and had insurance would ever walk into a Planned Parenthood for healthcare? That would be like, say, Ashley Judd buying a diamond at Walmart. I suppose she might just be that crazy.

      “Protected by law”? Slavery was once protected by law. It’s irrelevant to the morality of the law and has little to do with how Catholics are to conduct themselves.

      And, please, “yet I don’t see most Catholics out there helping them. I see them condemning them for being homeless, mentally ill, etc.”? Seriously? Mother Teresa, the Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Vincent de Paul, Catholic Charities, etc., etc., etc. – any of these ring a bell? This is comical. Let’s compare the number of organizations run by Christian organizations against the number of secular run charities. The Catholic Church invented social work and it fact, I believe it’s up to the Church, not the goverment to do charity. We did it far better and far more efficiently until the government got involved and regulated everything to hell.

      I’m pretty sure you understand that Catholic don’t wish for the government to pay for anyone’s sex life. So, yeah, I don’t see us asking for coverage of fertility drugs, birth control and your favorite, viagra. Your definition of healthcare and ours differs. We believe in providing care that provides for peoples’ health.

      And, no, I will fight the evil of abortion while helping my fellow man. Neither are mutually exclusive activities.

    2. Slaveowners once made a choice protected by law. Did that make it good?

      You don’t see Catholics helping the poor because you avert your eyes. Last year Catholic Charities spent over four billion dollars helping nine million people. Please change your screen name, iit is the opposite of what you are doing.

  3. Way to many bishops like McElroy, Weurhl ,Cupich , Gomez,, McGrath and most obviously Barron etc. Are No Shows on Canon law 915 and pro abortion and Euthanasia politicians like Gov. Brown , Nancy Pelosi and Sanchez sisters in California…….. Until they and the Vatican take action the left wing looney tunes like Radcliffe, America mag. ,Alleged Father Martin and National Catholic distorter reporter errors will run rampant in the R C. Faith very sad to say .

  4. Teaching Tolerence writes: “yet I don’t see most Catholics out there helping them…”

    I suppose you don’t see them because they aren’t working with the outfits where you volunteer?

    I don’t know where you are located. Locally in the Bay Area there are, for example, several Gabriel Projects where people personally help struggling women have their babies instead of killing them even after the baby is born.

    You are hanging out with the wrong Catholics methinks!

    1. I volunteer two days a week in the Tenderloin. Do you? I see babies with their parents as their parents are buying and using drugs. They don’t have a chance. I work with people who have told me their parents should never have been allowed to have kids, themselves included, as they are in so much pain and are addicted and homeless. Not sure I would wish that on anyone. I look at the children of the Sudan and wonder if they are thankful for their short lives full of pain and starvation. Unfortunately, I don’t see that most of those those who are against birth control and abortion are doing anything about the struggles of these children except for voting against Planned Parenthood which offers them some health care. Maybe God meant it that way as Jesus says in the gospel of Mark that the poor will always be with us, but I should be anointed anyway with a perfume that could have fed the poor for a long time.

      1. Actually, I don’t volunteer in the tenderloin. BTW, I do know more than one person and/or priest that does. I volunteer to help unwed mothers in my area. Do you? I help veterans, do you? Good for your service to the needy. Don’t think because you do one thing that hundred of others don’t do something else. Kind of pompous don’t you think. Again, Sisters of Charity, Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Vincent de Paul, etc. Really, we can play who volunteers better or you can retract you comment that Catholics don’t serve those in need.

        And, please describe where you received you omniscience that “they don’t have a chance.” You remedy is to have had them killed. They really wouldn’t have a chance that way.

        I have to laugh at your assumptions. First of all, do you really think that the majority of those showing up on PP’s doorsteps didn’t use birth control? You cannot really be that naive.

        Next, your remedy for starvation is to allow people to be killed. Bravo! Brilliant! How about you give your money to help them instead of trying to kill them. Death is never the answer.

        Next, birth control is not health care. It doesn’t do one iota to help their health. In fact, science shows just the opposite. It increases their risk of STDs and cancer. Again, bravo!

        And, lastly, please tell me how these women couldn’t receive the exact same services at a county facility or free clinic. Do you homework. Let me help you: https://lozierinstitute.org/health-clinics-nationwide-compared-to-planned-parenthood-centers/

        I’m sorry you don’t know the help Catholics give to the poor and needy. Do some more research. Your thoughts that Catholics do nothing to help the poor and vulnerable are so off base it’s beyond the pale.
