RE: MORNING AFTER PILL
Pharmacist disputes Irish Pharmaceutical Union’s welcome of Morning after pill
I totally dispute the Irish Pharmaceutical Union’s welcome of sale of “morning-after” pill as a “landmark decision for women”
So said pharmacist Patrick McCrystal, Executive Director of Human Life International (Ireland).
"I work for a charity that upholds the dignity of woman. This decision is a disgrace to all Irish women.
"Today’s reported decision by the Irish Medicines Board to make the so-called “morning after” pill available for sale for €9.99 effectively condemns children yet unborn to death.
"Everyone involved in this issue is gravely morally responsible”"This pill makes money out of killing human life. It kills human life sacred and made in God’s image and likeness.
Pope John Paul II reminded us that:
I believe it is no coincidence that today’s mass reading states:
Today’s mass readings speak of God looking down from heaven to the earth to hear "the groans of prisoners" and free those "condemned to die".
Furthermore, today’s first reading from the book of Genesis states:
“I will demand an account of every man’s life from his fellow man” - Genesis 9:5
Everyone involved must give account of the acts he personally performs. No-one can be exempted from it and on the basis of it, everyone will be judged by God Himself.”
