Portland Archbishop Alexander Sample, a staunch defender of Catholic teaching, condemned abortion as pure evil similar to or even worse than the Holocaust and other mass killings of the 20th century.
“I think most people do not realize that since Roe v. Wade in 1973, over 63 million unborn children had lost their lives to abortion just here in the United States,” Sample said in a July 8 video.
He added that the scale of the evil of abortion is truly a globally historic tragedy.
Moreover, the archbishop said that it is not his place to judge the moral state of a person but people can judge moral actions.
“The action of abortion and advocating for abortion is evil. That is an evil act on the part of a human being. It is true that all of us are capable of evil – that the line between good and evil runs through the human heart – but the act of abortion, the intentional killing of an innocent unborn human child, is always wrong,” he stated.
Sample pointed out that the solution to child poverty is not to kill unborn children.
“That’s not a solution. That’s just a magnification of the problem. What we need to do is address the problem, whether it’s poverty or whether it’s due to other circumstances in their life.
“That vulnerable, fragile, precious life really deserves our protection,” he said, adding that this is the reason why he is determined to use his position as an archbishop to give voice to the unborn who have no voice. “Their cries will not go unheard.”
Democrats are obsessed with abortion
On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that affirmed the constitutional right to abortion for nearly five decades. This landmark ruling has caused millions of deaths of children in the U.S. alone.
Justice Samuel Alito said the ruling and repeated subsequent high court decisions reaffirming Roe “must be overruled” because they were “egregiously wrong,” the arguments “exceptionally weak” and so “damaging” that they amounted to “an abuse of judicial authority.”
The decision meant that abortion rights will be rolled back in nearly half of the states immediately, with more restrictions likely to follow. But the Democrats led by President Brandon just would not stop.
Finding a way around the decision, Brandon signed an executive order “protecting access to reproductive health services” on July 8.
“Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court issued a decision that overturned Roe v. Wade and eliminated a woman’s Constitutional right to choose. This decision expressly took away a right from the American people that it had recognized for nearly 50 years, a woman’s right to make her own reproductive health care decisions, free from government interference,” the White House stated in a fact sheet.
The executive order will support abortion on demand until the moment of birth. The fact sheet released directed the Department of Health and Human Services to protect and expand access to “medication abortion” and ordered the Attorney General and the White House Counsel to “convene private pro bono attorneys, bar associations and public interest organizations” to provide legal counsel for women seeking abortions and doctors committing abortions.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma’s Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren suggested back in June for the Brandon administration to put abortion tents on federal land in states that ban abortion. The solon from Massachusetts told Washington Post that she will request the White House to establish Planned Parenthood outposts on the edges of national parks.
“They could put up tents, have trained personnel – and be there to help people who need it,” the news outlet’s reporter quoted the senator. “It’s time to declare a medical emergency.”
However, analysts denounced Warren’s suggestion as this will conflict with the Hyde Amendment. The said amendment prohibits the use of taxpayer funds for abortions, other than in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of a mother.
Also, a California doctor is proposing to set up a floating abortion clinic in the Gulf of Mexico as a way to maintain access for people in southern states where abortion bans have been enacted.
Dr. Meg Autry, an obstetrician, gynecologist and professor at the University of California San Francisco, said the idea is to provide a clinic aboard a ship in federal waters, and out of reach of state laws, that would offer first-trimester surgical abortions and other care.
