You say these people, "killed a human being"...if the human being was innocent, this is typically called murder. Catholics teach abortion is murder,and separately teach a Just War theory about when it is morally correct to use force to prevent murders... so where is the Catholic Church's defense of Scott Roeder for killing George Tiller, who butchered tens of thousands of children just like the one in this story (and who had Monday's round of slaughters scheduled when he was killed on a Sunday posing as a Christian usher in a church full of other false-front Christians)? Jesus had patience for many, except those religious whom he decried boldly and loudly for being "HYPOCRITES!!" Even Obama in accepting the Nobel "Peace" justified violent force against a sovereign if that sovereign power refuses to protect its own people from slaughter. Why is the Catholic Church not hoisting Obama by his own petards regarding abortion, since Obama he has essentially justified violent force against America for its refusal to protect pre-birth human lives? Why is the Catholic Church NOT flying US flags at half-staff to show the slaughter caused daily by abortion and a nation in moral crisis? Instead, it is BINGO games and football-- even participating in Halloween rituals, as usual. THIS IS THE TRUE CRISIS OF HOLINESS: the pretension of normalcy and the endorsement of a corrupt civilization amidst hidden holocausts, even by those who profess knowledge of those evils. In its "SILENT SCREAM" in reponse to Tiller's killing, the Catholic Church shows that it is like a man sitting in a theater yelling "FIRE! FIRE!" but remaining in his seat to watch the movie. Who should listen to this man's cry of alarm? No one! He appears mentally imbalanced-- at best a petty nuissance prankster; at worst a dangerous false alarmist inciting panic where none is warranted ...pretty soon, he will be dragged out of the theater, utterly discredited BY HIS OWN FAILURE TO ACT IN A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH HIS PERCEPTIONS.

PS- Maybe this failure of the Catholic Church to demonstrate publicly WHY abortion SHOULD BE REGARDED AS MURDER AND CARRY THE PENALTY FOR MURDER (even if such penalty is waived out of compassion or due to the blanket of lies surrounding abortion) is why this abortion article had zero comments 10 months after it was written! The Church has failed to teach and SHOW why abortion is murder, and so Catholics en masse do not truly reject abortion and act on that rejection at a deep level but rather their disapproval of abortion is only "an inch deep and a mile wide," enabling them to feel self-righteous at no personal cost.
