Faith and science support defense of the unborn, states Argentinean archbishop

.- Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata, Argentina recently explained that the defense of the unborn is supported by both science and the faith.

He added that faith teaches us that “the Son of God became man in the womb of Mary and shared in our humanity.”

The archbishop emphasized the right to life during his program “Keys to a Better World” on March 19.

He also referred to the celebration of the Day of the Unborn Child on March 25, when Catholics commemorate the Solemnity of the Annunciation and “the mystery of the incarnation.” This truth of the faith makes it possible for Catholics to rescue and regain “a rational truth, a natural truth that is clearly apparent to the consciences of every person of good will.”

“From the moment of conception, that is, from the first instant of the personal existence of a human being, a life is present that has incomparable value and cannot be suppressed,” the archbishop said. “This is a natural truth that is ratified by the revelation of God and is expressed in the commandment, ‘Thou shalt not kill’,” he added.

Science also supports this truth by demonstrating that from the union of an egg and a sperm a new person is created, infused with an immortal soul by God, he said.

“For this reason human life has an irrepressible value. It’s not about feelings, but scientific reason. Our feelings ought to flow from the truth of this reason.”

Archbishop Aguer underscored the importance of reflecting on the meaning of life and “the immense possibilities that are destroyed when an unborn human life is not allowed develop.”
