Pro-Abortionist Nigel Biggar appointed to the Pontifical Academy for Life by Pope Francis!
Quote LifeNews: "The Pontifical Academy for Life promotes protections for human life at all stages and supports research on moral and bioethical issues. It is influential world-wide in promoting Catholic teachings on abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research and other issues involving life and family.
Biggar, a professor of theology at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, has made past statements in support of abortion and possibly even limited euthanasia, The National Catholic Register reports."
Our Holy Father - who is supposed to uphold, teach and advance the Catholic faith, has just placed an abortion advocate to the Ordinary Members of the Pontifical Academy for Life.
What the hell?!
Seriously, this sort of crap infuriates me!
It's like putting Nancy Pelosi in charge of the Pro-life March!
Biggar: “I would be inclined to draw the line for abortion at 18 weeks after conception, which is roughly about the earliest time when there is some evidence of brain activity, and therefore of consciousness. In terms of maintaining a strong social commitment to preserving human life in hindered forms, and in terms of not becoming too casual about killing human life, we need to draw the line much more conservatively.”
“It’s not clear that a human foetus is the same kind of thing as an adult or a mature human being, and therefore deserves quite the same treatment. It then becomes a question of where we draw the line, and there is no absolutely cogent reason for drawing it in one place over another.”
So Biggar is "inclined to draw the line for abortion at 18 weeks after conception" while Christ's Holy Catholic Church teaches all abortion is opposed to moral law. Pope Francis just tossed moral law out the window and replaced it with a pro-abort who isn't "clear that a human foetus is the same kind of thing as an adult".
What the hell were you thinking Pope Francis?
The Catholic Church:
Catecism #2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish. 75God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes. 76
Catechism #2274 "Since it must be treated from conception as a person, the embryo must be defended in its integrity, cared for, and healed, as far as possible, like any other human being.Prenatal diagnosis is morally licit, "if it respects the life and integrity of the embryo and the human fetus and is directed toward its safe guarding or healing as an individual.... It is gravely opposed to the moral law when this is done with the thought of possibly inducing an abortion, depending upon the results: a diagnosis must not be the equivalent of a death sentence."
Biggar doesn't believe what the Catholic Church teaches on life, so why on God's green earth would the pope put such a man in the Pontifical Academy for Life?
I am, once more, completely baffled by the actions of this pope.
He worries about the scandal some priests in Nigeria might be causing because they opposed his choice in a Bishop (see my post from yesterday), but he apparently has no worries about the scandal HE causes by putting a pro-choice abortion supporter on the Pontifical Academy for Life.
I can't help but think of the prophecies of Anne Catherine Emmerich about those inside the Church working hard to destroy it from within.
