A Child is a Gift


“A child is not something owed to one, but is a gift. The ‘supreme’ gift of marriage’ is a human person. A child may not be considered a piece of property, an idea to which an alleged ‘right to a child’ would lead. In this area, only the child possesses genuine rights: the right ‘to be the fruit of the specific act of the conjugal love of his parents,’ and ‘the right to be respected as a person from the moment of his conception.”

~ Catechism of the Catholic Church #2378

  1. I’m a Muslim but to me the Catholic Church defending of the unborn is beyond reproach and much to be praised.

      Thank you for your support, if only everyone thought this way we’d be able to change the law on abortion in this country.
