The politics of family planning, abortion and contraception never fail to get Catholics fired up politically. I wonder if many of them would ever vote if not for saving innocent lives. Now the Catholic Action of League of Massachusetts is calling upon Catholic hospitals to refuse to comply with a law that requires hospitals to stock Plan B for rape victims. See the article here.
Or read the piece here:
This astounds me. In fact, I never seem to fully digest the absolutist and monolithic position of many Catholics on these matters.
I understand that many would argue that despite the rape, the child is an innocent life. My question is this: Where was God when she was getting raped?
How can you be sure that this child is in fact a "gift" of life, and not, say the work of the devil?
