In celebration of Canada's birthday on July 1st, the Governor General issued the Order of Canada to Henry Morgentaler, one of the country's leading abortion activists. I consider this a very sad day! It shows the moral fabric of our country and it's gradual erosion and stray away from God. Good for Stephen Harper for right away making a public statement that his government had nothing to do with the decision. I said to my husband that if I had ever received one of those awards, for what I have absolutely no idea, but if I ever had, I would be marching into that office and giving it back, saying that this is not at all what I want to be affiliated with. Kudos to those Catholics who have done just that!
I wonder to myself what kind of response we can have to such a thing. What would Jesus really want us to do in the face of this kind of political and emotional climate that we are living in? So I am thankful for having had a chance to be involved with the Crisis Pregnancy Centers who are actually out there being a support to all kinds of women faced with the trauma of pregnancy, wanted or not. To see these women who are so caring, so non-judgmental, so emotionally involved with women every day, despite what media says about them, they should spend a day there and feel the love! Feel the LOVE people! :)
