The description-in the video-of Bishop Thomas Tobin as ultra orthodox is nonsensical
What does the Catholic Church teach about abortion?
A. 1. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
"Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. "A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae," [CIC, can. 1398] "by the very commission of the offense," [CIC, can. 1314] and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law. [Cf. CIC, cann. 1323-1324] The Church does not thereby intend to restrict the scope of mercy. Rather, she makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society." (C.C.C. # 2272)
"A person who procures a successful abortion incurs an automatic (latae sententiae) excommunication." [Code of Canon Law 1398]
Q. 2. What does "formal cooperation in an abortion" means?
A. 2. "Formal cooperation in an abortion" means all the individual who had an abortion, the abortionist who performed the abortion(s), the nurses and other employees that assist in abortions, the administrative staff that provided facilities where abortions were performed, all the individuals who recommended/suggested an abortion, the POLITICIANS who supported abortions and/or who voted in favour of them, all the relatives who supported abortions, no matter their excuse for being in favour of it, and even the religious persons who have supported such an act by word or action.
There is no exception, either one is in favour of abortion or totally against it. Visit Catholic Doors Ministry
Abortion is the murder of the innocent unborn child. Any Catholic who supports abortion excommunicates himself/herself. Remember the 5th Commandment:” Thou shalt not kill”. Kennedy is either a Catholic or he is not. He either stands for the Law of God or he supports Satan’s dirty work. No Catholic can have it both ways. It is time to dispense with the term pro choice, which is, sanitized language designed to hide the savagery of abortion. How can a woman have the choice to murder her own child? We are all answerable to God when we die. Lawmakers will answer to God for evil laws passed. It is time Patrick Kennedy grew up. Similarly the stance of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden on the abortion issue is an affront to the Law of God. Pelosi, Kennedy and Biden have chosen Godless Liberalism over Catholicism. They have chosen to support the modern holocaust where the unborn are done to death in the modern day gas chambers, namely the abortion clinics. 52 million Americans have been butchered since Roe V Wade. Pelosi, Kennedy and Biden et al seek to justify this. In fact they wish to support taxpayer funded abortion which will further increase the number of babies done to death.
Patrick Kennedy complains. Has he reached the use of reason yet? It is about time that he considered God’s wishes.
You cannot be a slave to Liberalism and be a good Catholic at the same time.
Kennedy, Pelosi, Biden et al should read the Catholic Catechism on the Abortion issue.
