Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Another Catholic pharmacist stands firm in the faith!

This is sad that is has come to this in our country, but I am still very grateful and happy to see such a wonderfully strong Catholic working peacefully as a pharmacist -- and thanks to Walgreens for standing by her side thus far. Send prayers up to heaven for this woman, she is going to need them -- but she seems to be pretty well grounded for now!

Read it at TheMilwaukeeChannel.com - News - Pharmacist Refuses To Fill Prescriptions For Moral Reasons

Here is what I just wrote the news station:

Absolutely! It is lawfully and morally right for a pharmacist to be able to refuse to fill prescrptions they believe are immoral or against their relgious beliefs -- particularly when it comes to contraception pills and "day-after" pills, which by their very created purpose are "chemical abortions." They are no different from any other abortion, as they are meant to destroy the growing fetus. It does not matter whether the fetus is "implanted" yet or not, the fetus is still a fetus -- in other words, a baby. The same baby that will one day cry and squall, and that will one day get a job and possibly discover the cure for AIDS.

If doctors, nurses and other medical staff can be conscientious objectors to particpating in abortion procedures, then it follows that pharmacists should also be able to conscientiously object to participating in chemical abortions.

Any woman who thinks that there is a difference between these two forms of abortion, one being "real" abortion and the other being "just contraception," is fooling herself -- the latter is just a cleaner and "easier" way. But then again, what's the difference between the Nazis killing a Jew in the quick and clean gas chamber, or killing him out in the street with blood everywhere? Either way the Jew is dead, it's just easier to hide the first method.
