Catholic Priest: Abortion is ‘Chemical Warfare’ in U.S.
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama expressed outrage over the chemical weapons attack in Syria, which killed many children, but he and Secretary of State John Kerry are hypocritical because they support killing children by abortion in America, where chemically induced abortions – “chemical warfare” -- have been occurring as well for 40 years, said Rev. Brian Sistare in a post on his blog, “Proud to be Catholic!”
Reverend Sistare is the pastor of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Woonsocket, R.I. He made waves earlier this year by emailing Rhode Island’s state senators who voted in favor of gay marriage, asking them what they would do now when a man wants to marry 2 or 3 women or a mother wants to marry her son. He urged the Catholic senators who voted for gay marriage to go to Confession.
In a blog post entitled “Going to War?” Rev. Sistare noted the estimated 1,000 people who were killed on Aug. 21 by chemical weapons in Syria, questioned whether America would go to war over the incident, and added “Hopefully, war can be avoided.”
Rev. Sistare also wrote, “What I would like to point out in the midst of this difficult moment is the sheer hypocrisy of our government ‘leaders.’ The Secretary of State John Kerry said that what President Assad did was a ‘crime against conscience,’ and a ‘crime against humanity.’ Obama also spoke of the heinous crimes that were done to the Syrian people by their own president, mentioning that children were killed. He said that ‘we cannot accept a world in which people are gassed on a terrible scale,’ and that ‘we don’t want the world to be paralyzed.’”
“It is hard to take both of these men seriously in what they say because of their full-on support for the death of innocent children in the womb through abortion,” said Rev. Sistare. “Both of these men not only support the right to kill innocent children in the wombs of their mothers, but also advocate this ‘crime against conscience’ and ‘crime against humanity.’”
He continued: “The little, innocent victims of abortion are even being killed ‘chemically’ by such CONTRAceptives/abortificients, such as the morning after pill, the IUD, the NuvaRing, and even high dosages of the birth control pill. ‘Chemical warfare’ against our own people has been happening for over 40 years now, and the current ‘leader’ of our country has no problem with it, even adding insult to injury by asking God to bless one of the major suppliers of these chemicals used in the warfare against the innocent, in the organization known as Planned Parenthood.”
Back on Apr. 26, President Obama spoke at the Planned Parenthood National Conference. He praised the organization, which aborted 663,409 babies in 2010-11, and concluded his remarks saying, “Thank you Planned Parenthood, God bless you.”
According to the Guttmacher Institute, there were nearly 50 million abortions in the United States between 1973 and 2008, and in 2008 alone 1.21 million abortions were performed. Those numbers, however, do not include chemically induced abortions, which can sometimes occur with the Plan B morning after pill, Ella, the hormonal IUD, and the birth control pill, among other products, by preventing the human embryo from implanting on the uterine wall.
In ending his blog post, Rev. Sistare said, "My brothers and sisters, let us pray for our nation and its leaders. Let us pray that we don't need to go to war, that the peace of Christ reign in the hearts of all leaders throughout the world, and that we as a nation stop the genocide that is going on in our own country. God bless!"
