Irrevocable Choice

Irrevocable Choice is a blog about life issues. Those in favor of legalized abortion often use the word "choice." Once completed, the "choice" to destroy a human life either via abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research is IRREVOCABLE. It is PERMANENT. It can NEVER be undone. The innocent life can NEVER be restored.

Supporters of Legalized Abortion Honored and/or Allowed to Speak at "Catholic" Colleges

It is my opinion that ANY college allowing someone who favors legalized abortion to speak does NOT deserve the label "Catholic." I certainly hope that our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, bans their use of that name.

Some "Catholic" colleges claim this is 'academic freedom' or 'freedom of ideas' or some other excuse. By providing facilities for these individuals to speak and/or giving some sort of 'honor' to them, these "Catholic" colleges are complicit in the MORTAL sin of abortion in my opinion. College students are typically young and impressionable. For the "authorities" of a college to allow facilities for advocates of legalized abortion to speak, they are giving an improper message to young people. Young people may even mistakenly think the church allows abortion. Afterall, if a "Catholic" college allows one of these speakers (or honors them!) a forum, college students who may not be particularly well versed in the faith may make an incorrect conclusion.
