Abortion in Mexico
False Catholics scandalized by term “murder” but still support it, Mexican archdiocese states

.- The spokesman for the Archdiocese of Mexico City, Father Hugo Valdemar Romero, criticized the group “Catholics for a Free Choice” for its hypocrisy for claiming to be scandalized “when we mention the term murder when describing what takes place during an abortion,” and he said that the group wants to act like “victims only because the Catholic Church preaches the truth in saying that abortion” is killing an innocent being.

“I’m surprised by the hypocrisy of these groups that are scandalized when we mention the term murder to describe what happens during an abortion, when that is what happens when an innocent being is killed in the womb of her mother,” the priest said, adding that the promoters of abortion are not scandalized by the act of killing but rather by the term, which he said was a “great hypocrisy.”

According to the Archdiocese of Mexico’s news service, Father Valdemar said that in using the term murder that does not mean that the leaders of these groups are guilty of it, unless they undergo abortions.  But in supporting a law that promotes this practice they become accomplices.

Likewise, he reaffirmed that the Church does not support violence and “on numerous occasions has condemned these acts because we never should discuss our differences with aggression, but we do believe that the worst violence that can be committed is that which is directed against the unborn.”

Father Valdemar slammed the organization for inciting a campaign against Cardinal Norberto Rivera and for their efforts to destroy the Church.  He called them dishonest for “presenting themselves as Catholics when in they aren’t,” he said.

In portraying themselves as victims, Catholics For a Free Choice is using a media strategy to appear as weak women being attacked by the “intolerant Catholic Church,” when in reality it is a “multinational association” that seeks to confuse Catholics and constantly attack the Church.
