Is Abortion a Type of Terrorism?

According to Archbishop Amato, secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Vatican City,
Abortion and euthanasia are examples of "terrorism with a human face," and, together with suicide bombers, are the scourge of contemporary society.
The Archbishop makes some excellent points. In fact, in the Vote Life, Canada! booklet "How to Vote Life," a similar description is put forward to help voters understand the true implications of voting for candidates who have no problem with the status quo on abortion; i.e. the continued killing of innocent unborn children in the womb. Here's what we point out:
Suppose a candidate came forward and said, “I support terrorism.” Would you say, “I disagree with you on terrorism, but what's your health care plan?” Of course not. Rather, you would immediately consider that candidate as disqualified from public office. His position, allowing the killing of the public, is radically inconsistent with public service.

So it is with abortion. Abortion is no less violent than terrorism. Any candidate who says abortion should be kept legal disqualifies him/herself from public service. We need look no further; we need pay no attention to what that candidate says on other issues. Support for abortion is enough for us to decide not to vote for such a person.

But returning to the Archbishop's comments, he noted:
Besides the abominable terrorism of suicide bombers, which is ever-present in the media, there is the so-called terrorism with a human face, which is also a daily occurrence and just as repugnant, which continues to be propagated by the media, manipulating traditional language with expressions that hide the tragic reality of the facts.
How much of this we see happening every day! The language of slogans and illusions is what fuels the pro-abortion movement.
As an example, the 68-year-old prelate mentioned that abortion is referred to as "the voluntary interruption of pregnancy" instead of "the killing of a defenseless human being." Euthanasia is defined merely as "death with dignity," he observed.

Archbishop Amato also mentioned the decisions of national legislatures that promote "laws contrary to the human being."

Evil today "is not only the action of single individuals or identifiable groups, but comes from dark centers, the laboratories of false opinions, from anonymous powers that hammer away at our minds with false messages, judging behavior in tune with the Gospels as ridiculous and out of date," he lamented.

"We cannot close the libraries of evil nor can we destroy its collection of videos that are reproduced like lethal viruses," noted Archbishop Amato. He explained that Christians can build themselves up "through the formation of a right conscience that searches for and loves the true and the good and avoids evil."

And there you have the solution. If Christians will learn to love the truth, form their consciences rightly and biblically, and live out their Christian duties in God honouring ways, Canadian society would be sufficiently salted such that abortion would be unthinkable....as it had been for more than 1900 years in Christian societies.

The Pro-abortion group is very effective in Quebec and it's very difficult to expose a another choice (Pro-life) because, atheism is also very present on massmedia.

Sorry for my English!

Thanks for your comment. Yes, there are many indications that Quebec especially, of all the provinces, has lost its way. And as you said there is much atheism--and pro-abortion bias--in the media.
Christians in Quebec hold the key if they will turn to the Lord.
