Vivisection means literally “to cut up something that’s alive,” and it’s the term used for operating on live animals for scientific research. We probably recall one instance or another where there was protest against labs using animals for scientific research this way. After all, an animal is a helpless creature who relies on people to survive this world. However, it is legal to vivisect a child in the womb in the world today. Fortunately, among the 194 nations globally, there are only ( and ‘only’ is still too much!) seven countries that legally allow this cruelty to be done on an unborn human baby. The seven countries where this is permitted are:
Canada (No restriction in law)
China (No restriction in law)
Netherlands (24 week)
North Korea (No restriction in law)
Singapore (24 weeks)
United States (viability)
Viet Nam (No restriction in law)
In the past month, there was an effort to stop this reign of terror on the unborn but, fourteen CATHOLIC UNITED STATE SENATORS DEFIED most of Congress, the President, and the majority of United States Public opinion so the United States remains a part of the death squad.
Even more sad is that of the fourteen CATHOLIC (in name only at this point!) only one of the Senators has been excommunicated by his bishop, Bishop Paprocki. Where is the outrage from our clergy? Why aren’t the bishops making known and promoting Catholic teaching in the face of this? How can they continue to give them the Sacraments to these senators after they publically made their very un-Catholic views known and voted accordingly?
Although it should be extremely surprising, remember over 50 percent of the Catholic vote voted an adamant pro-abort president into the White House TWICE.
