Denial of the truth may be easier for some people when thinking about Catholic values. But regardless of whether truth is faced or denied, what the truth is does not change. Disregarding the truth to assuage guilt or make one's actions fit into a mold that will alleviate distress from one's conscience is still disregarding the truth. And when the truth is blurred, lives are lost. When is an act of abortion anything less than the direct murder of a preborn child? The answer to this question is never.When is the use of a contraceptive method anything less than a defiant act against God which tells Him that He need not get involved in your life by giving you the gift of a child? The answer to this question is never. When is the direct assault on a human embryo for the purpose of removing his stem cell anything less than killing him? Never.
