Fr. Cedric Ministries is staunchly Pro-Life! Father Cedric strongly advocates the protection of the unborn and the rights of every human person conceived in their mother’s womb. He believes, as the Catholic church clearly teaches, that human life begins at conception. That new life conceived has rights that supersedes the rights of his or her mother or father.
I applaud the legislators in the state of Missouri. It is now illegal to have an abortion in this state. Amazing! You are the "show me" state and you are showing the rest of the country the way to life! So many other states are trending that way and things are changing day to day. I can't be happier about the way things are going...
Also, Alabama. They composed (and the courageous governor) signed into law making it a felon for any doctor to perform an abortion (except in cases of rape or incest.) This law is still being formulated. They are making a serious challenge to the Supreme Court regarding Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion. Many states, like Missouri, who is making it illegal to have an abortion after there is a heartbeat (8 weeks) are helping turn the tide. I am so encouraged by those who are boldly and courageously making a stance towards Pro Life. The prayers and proactive action of so many is making a huge difference! Thanks be to God. We still have a long way to go, but the tide is beginning to turn. Movies like "Unplanned" also help. Thank you for praying and being proactive on behalf of the unborn!
"The first right of a human being is his/her life.
We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence."
Respect life issues touch us all as they are entwined throughout our lives from conception through natural death and include, but are not limited to, contraception, natural family planning, abortion, stem cell research, artificial reproduction, cloning, infanticide, the death penalty, end of life issues, euthanasia, and physician assisted suicide. These encounters necessitate the proper development of life guiding principles for forming opinions, dealing with issues and leading our families. We are obliged as Christians to educate our consciences with regard to the issues and to prayerfully assess each situation to ensure that we make informed choices.
