Well, with the socialized health care we’ll get the euthanasia... and after the second civil war, in which the government unleashes atomic, biological, and chemical weapons on its own citizens we will certainly be in barbarism.
It is interesting that he made that connection. It seems he was correct but I have no idea why those things would connect in that way. To me I see no harm in birth control and in fact it should have made having children more special- more dear to the parents. It is logical that if couples could postpone having children they would have time to strengthen their bond as a couple, and would enjoy planned children more, cherish them more, be better able to provide them with a happy stable home. It worked out that way for hubby and I and many others I know...but in many ways it seems to have had the opposite effect on many people. Many seemed to think birth control was permission to have sex without consequences- a green light for low morals, not simply family planning.
Abortion and euthenasia to me do indeed have a direct connection; they both take away from the value of life. I also think abortion and euthenasia have no place in a civilized society. There is nothing civilized about killing babies or the elderly/handicapped. I cannot imagine how anyone could think otherwise.
Pope Paul VI warned
Now, what would the Pope, a person of faith, know about the devolution of life? SARCASM OFF!
