The importance of law

First of all Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah respectively.

On this the second day of Christmas, I need to comment on certain disturbing, dare I say Orwellian, actions in Europe. A European Union advisory panel has issued a statement saying that medical professionals are not allowed to refuse to participate in abortions. According to the EU Network of Independent Experts on Fundamental Rights doctors should be forced to perform abortions, even if they have conscientious objections, because the right to abort a child is an “international human right.” consider that a half century ago, the righ to life was considered a universa human right. Now the secularists in Europe want to force doctors to kill human beings.
The article cites the EU Network of Independent Experts on Fundamental Rights who released a 40 page report concerning a proposed treaty between the Vatican and Slovakia guaranteeing the rights of Catholics not to perform abortions. This network wants to force Catholics in Europe to perform abortions. In the most unbelievable of claims, this panel of so-called experts wants to deny doctors the rights of conscience. Meanwhile the International Planned Parenthood representative ipraisingng the opinion. This is just another example of the fascist tendencies of the left. Not content with having legalized the killing, the left would force doctors to violate their consciences to perform abortions. To those who wondered if the lessons of World War II and the Nazi Holocaust have been forgotten, one can only cry out in a loud voice that we are doing to our children what the Nazis did to the Jews and others in the camps. People may not like the parallel but the reality is so scary that when the notion of rights speak to killing children and forcing doctors to violate their consciences to do so, we have entered into Orwell's world of 1984.

Meanwhile people wonder what is the effect of law. The law is a teacher and if it does not teach to protect the weak and defend life, the very opposite will happen. We have seen it here and throughout the world.

This is why we must work to change the laws. We must have laws that protect the human person from his very conception through natural death. Anything less is a disservice to future generations.
