EDITOR’S NOTE: The following “letter” is presented in the form of satire in the hope of making the point that a Catholic hospital that allows known abortionists on the staff is totally ludicrous, hypocritical, scandalous, and shameful at best.
La Crosse WI.- (ProLifeCorner.com) – 5-10-2014 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – To my reasonable Bishop Callahan and Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Thank you for having Dr. Rose on staff at Franciscan Mayo Hospital. I know some religious extremists call Dr. Rose an abortionist, but we can all admit he is a professional and efficient at preventing the hearts of children in the womb from beating. We have never heard of him botching even one abortion. This kind of efficiency and professionalism is hard to find. A true hallmark of Franciscan Health Care.
I have supported Dr. Rose for many years, and we have worked well together concerning the “choices” many mothers have made. Your Catholic hospital gives us both a wonderful opportunity to share the “good news of choice” with mothers and helps us prevent needless and unwanted children from overcrowding the world. All this with the seal of approval of the Catholic Church that helps any mother who may be considering abortion overcome any moral objections or questions she may have. After all when a doctor in a Catholic hospital says it’s time to terminate your baby, who can argue with that?
We both know civil law must be obeyed even when it tells us to own a slave or kill Jews in concentration camps. Your wonderful example of faithful obedience to a civil law that you say tells us we have to participate in killing babies is a wonderful example of how Christians must follow all future laws that will come from our secular governments.
No matter the body count, obey that law! If anyone tells us we need to follow the laws of God against killing innocent babies, we can say we are being forced to support abortion and just can’t do anything about it.
I have been told by a few so-called good Catholics in the diocese that Bishop Callahan will put an end to the killing by a Catholic hospital. We can all chuckle at that. We must continue dialogue and evaluation, and never under any circumstances should we ever take any risks or a public stand that might cost us something.
Bishop Callahan, if you have to soothe your conscience (or as we call it save face), just make a public statement of how pro-life you are, and you really don’t like that a Catholic Hospital is helping Dr. Rose crush skulls and stop beating hearts, but your hands are tied.
My one hope is that we can all come out of the closet together and admit our name is the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Abortion, Inc.!
See you soon,
Old Scratch, Prince of this World
