Nelson Mandela has earned all of the effusive praise he’s receiving from abortion rights groups by replacing South African anti-abortion laws with abortion-on-demand, even for girls under 18 years of age without parental consent.
As president of South Africa, Mandela sought to undo the structures that marginalized and impoverished people – work Pope Francis is now challenging the entire world to imitate.
The nerve! Attaching the pope’s good name to a man like Mandela! The biggest problem with the statement above is that it isn’t from Planned Parenthood or NARAL, it’s from Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, who went on to say in the name of the United States Bishops:
The prayers of the bishops of the United States are with the Mandela family and with the people, the Church and the bishops of South Africa. We thank God for his brave witness and for all men and women who work against injustice and seek, in the words of Pope John XXIII, ‘to make the human sojourn on earth less sad.”
Yes, let us thank the Good Lord for Nelson Mandela’s bravery in seeing to it that more than a million human beings might be mutilated in their mothers’ wombs in a “safe and legal” way lest they may have come to sadden the world by their very presence.
If you’re wondering where Archbishop Kurtz gets the nerve, wonder no more:
Paying tribute to the steadfast commitment shown by Nelson Mandela in promoting the human dignity of all the nation’s citizens and in forging a new South Africa built on the firm foundations of non-violence, reconciliation and truth, I pray that the late President’s example will inspire generations of South Africans to put justice and the common good at the forefront of their political aspirations. – Statement of Pope Francis on Nelson Mandela’s death
Sure, there’s a new man in charge at the USCCB, but it’s the same old Devil pulling the strings, and his reach extends well beyond American shores.
