CHOOSE LIFE – The argument that the government should not be involved in such a personal decision as abortion is fatally flawed. The government got “too involved” in abortion when it claimed (through the Supreme Court) to have the authority to deprive some human beings of their right to life. Also, when someone’s “choice” destroys someone else’s life, that choice is no longer merely a personal, private matter.   (Fr. Frank Pavone,)
