Choose Life

Delighted to see James E. Briner’s letter to the editor in today’s Cumberland Times-News, in which he cites the contradictions of some prominent Catholic politicians and says:

“The church (teaches) that a human being is created at the moment of conception
and its willful destruction is nothing short of murder.”
The prophet in Deuteronomy 30:19 says of the choice between misery and happiness – evil and death, good and life: "Choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live” Literal or mystical, choosing life in God's light and in our option-filled world is the Catholic way; and it's the simplistic and holistic way to spiritual health for us and for those who live with us. Got to admire the courage of those devout young Catholics who make their message of survival clear: “You can’t be Catholic and pro-choice.”
