Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.– G. K. Chesterton
Well known organizations which claim to assist women merely exist to profit financially from women's misery only to abandon them to the consequences of their acts. Catholic organizations, by contrast, are at the vanguard of supporting women in crisis. Women who, sadly, have been exploited by the abortion industry can turn to charities sponsored by the Church. The Church has a vast network of local agencies that offer psychological counselling and legitimate medical support to those hurt by abortion. Church-run charities offer financial support, support for education, housing and legitimate medical support to women coping with an unexpected pregnancy.
The Catholic Faith—the religion of Jesus Christ—requires that we embrace the law of God in every respect, in and out of season. The religion of Christ requires we conform our will to His will, not the other way round. The law of God extends to every aspect of our lives, and as citizens of any nation, we are called to promote and defend laws which conform to the law of God revealed in and by Jesus Christ.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.– G. K. Chesterton
