Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Wednesday Wordplay – “This is My Body”

Abortion is the number one killer of Americans today.  And since today marks the 41st anniversary of its legalization, this edition of “Wednesday Wordplay” is not the usual, light fare.  Instead, I share a profound quote I read this week that takes four pivotal words of Jesus’s life and ministry and superimposes them over the pivotal words of today’s abortion debate.

"This is My Body"

Abortion is just a sad, sad practice that requires prayers for all involved.  Prayers for a culture that places higher value on one life than another. Prayers for the mothers who, for whatever reason, choose not to be.  Prayers for doctors who subvert their fundamental calling.  Prayers for a government that betrays liberty under a guise of liberty.  Prayers for all who are tempted to hate over this debate (including Christians, who should love above all else).  And finally, prayers for all the countless little children who never get their shot at living.

    Amen. Nice job! And prayers that all Christians most especially Catholics will see that you CANNOT separate your beliefs from politics.

    Abortion is a symptom of other issues that aren’t addressed or given less attention. Solve the underlying problems of self-esteem, self discipline, and respect and you will have less abortion. I am saddened that the issue of abortion is all about the symptom and not the causes. If you only treat the symptoms and not the root cause you’ll never cure the patient…

    It’s the entire American economy you’re speaking of, a systemically flawed understanding of liberty that can’t be corrected without unrealistically drastic measures. Life is at the root of liberty, though, and I think it all has to begin with a foundation of that principle in practice.
