What a sad situation! So very much outside of what I believe God's will is for all of us regarding marriage, family, and our sexuality.

The chair person from out local right to life commitee was speaking today about some of their projects. she also opened up about a story from her personal life. Her sister was rapes and became pregnant. she got an abotion without talking to any of her family and friends. the medical staff told her she did not have to. the abortion could make her feel like the rape never happened and she could go back to normal.
That was not true. she felt guilty and alone. she could never undo her decision. she spent the next 15 years ago pushing away her loved ones, abusing drubs/alcohol. the behavior ended when she killed herseld. apparently abortion can still kill the mothers. so much for being a safe procedure.

I wonder if articles like this will help people remember that early abortion activists were also eugenicists and planned for this to happen.

I was searching it on Catholic Answers Forum, and I should add that even when we "know", intellectually, that an action is sinful or a grave matter, we do not know (as only God does) if a given person is guilty of mortal sin, as they may not have knowledge of the sin, nor culpability.

And I'm glad I could ease your conscience!
I would encourage you to speak to a priest loyal to the Magisterium for a "real" answer, though.

I'm no theologian, but my understanding is it depends on the reasons for the hysterectomy. If the hysterectomy is done to render the woman sterile, then the action is inherently sinful. If the hysterectomy is done to correct a medical problem (ex. cancer in the uterus), then the fact that the woman is now sterile is an unfortunate side effect.

I realize its a sin to do anything unnatural to prevent a pregnancy which includes condom, birth control pills, tubal ligation, and of course the morning after pill and abortions... but what about hysterectomy done pre-menopausal?

Pray. Hope. Don't worry.

That is beautiful! And for some reason when I saw the topic subheading, I thought of Ecclesiastes 3:

My cruder ideology on the subject is: egg meets sperm, zygote, individual human life form, individual human rights. period.

for the unborn, I have always said: Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, pray for us.
Good news on the Holy Innocents Chapel: There are now two complete 24 hours of Exposed Eucharistic Adoration. Up until last week the Body was still encased in the Tabernacle. We are still working on the other days and there has been a 20% decrease in the number of abortions each week.

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

I like that idea, Dee, to add that prayer. I'll have to remember.

Can you post the prayer you say every Friday, Dee? I would love to know it.

My dh went to a huge Catholic Educators Conference this past week in Houston. There were so many booths and things from different agencies and departments and things. He said that there was a booth about ending the death penalty. I have been reading their literature. Such good information!

Amen!

My favourite pro-life prayer:

Almighty God, giver of all that is good, we thank You for the precious gift of human life:
For life in the womb, coming from your creative power,
For the life of children, making us glad with their freshness and promise,
For the life of young people, hoping for a better world,
For the life of people who are disabled, teaching us that every life has value,
For the life of the elderly, witnessing to the ageless values of patience and wisdom.
Like Blessed Mary, may we always say "YES" to Your gift. May we defend it and promote it from conception to its natural end. And bring us at last, O Father, to the fullness of eternal life in Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

In our school, we used to say this prayer every day at the end of the school day.
