Day Of Shame For German Catholic Church

Recently two Catholic hospitals in Cologne, Germany declined to give the "morning after" pill to a rape victim.  Of course what they declined to do was to facilitate in a possible chemical abortion.  Of course the progressives had a snit-fit.

Cardinal Joachim Meisner brought shame and disgrace upon the Church - and betrayed scores of innocent babies to boot - by approving (under "limited circumstances" of course!) the distribution of the deadly pill in Catholic hospitals in his diocese.  His spokesperson had the gall to say that "everything which is abortive in nature is not allowed".  Guess what?  The term "emergency contraception" is misleading on its face for part of its mechanism is the causation of chemical abortion.

Even if that was not the case, the Church has always condemned contraception owing to the anti-life mentality underlying its usage.  How soon these bishops forgot Humanae Vitae.  Perhaps they wish the rest of us would, too.  That's not happening.

During these last few days of his pontificate, I pray that Benedict XVI will discipline Cardinal Meisner and the rest of that feckless cabal.
