"The [abortion] excommunication affects all those who commit this crime with knowledge of the penalty attached, and thus includes those accomplices without which the crime would not have been committed." - Pope John Paul II, encyclical "The Gospel of Life,", #62, March 25, 1995
Bishops of Connecticut: Are you willing to risk murder?...
"The encyclical of Pope Paul VI on birth control is true and must be followed by mankind. There shall be no rationalization of sin.” - Our Lady of the Roses, October 2, 1976
The following excerpts are from a phone conversation with a noted pro-life priest, who is also a canon lawyer. I asked if, according to Church law, the Connecticut bishops have been automatically excommunicated by their material cooperation in the sin of abortion (Canons 1329 and 1398), by their mandating the abortifacient Plan B in rape cases within their Catholic hospitals. That this act has made the Connecticut bishops accomplices, without whose help the crime would not have been committed. The following is this priest’s response to my question:
If you deny the Faith, you are automatically excommunicated.
With bishops, we’re not talking about someone who is ignorant. So you can safely presume that they have been excommunicated. They know it, and God knows it.
The only way they could avoid it would be if they were somehow ignorant. It may be partial ignorance. But a man who is intelligent enough to become a priest and then a bishop should be able to put together a very simple guideline that if you are hunting bear in the bushes, it could be a bear, or it could be a person. And if you shoot and you kill someone, you are guilty of manslaughter. Even in civil law there is punishment for this.
Another example: If there was a box of breakfast cereal and some scientists argue it is poison, and some say it is not poison, are you going to give this cereal to your children?
You cannot take action in cases of uncertainty, like the Connecticut bishops have taken. So the question to the bishops is: Are you going to risk murder?
No one seems to be bringing up this issue. Even the “good guys”, if they are good guys. This simple fact. Unless people are willfully blind.
And anyone who says “the poor bishops, that they didn’t know”, it seems that the bishops should have contacted the Vatican about this.
(Mentioning the ominous similarities to King Henry VIII vs. the Catholic bishops of his day, Father responded):
St. Thomas More would not have died if the English bishops would have backed him up. Here’s a layman that died because his bishops would not back him up. They are moving ahead right on schedule just like in history. It won’t be Henry VIII, but it will be someone else. We’re definitely going in that direction. You can be sure that American blood will be shed on American soil over the Catholic Faith.
The Connecticut politicians, they beat the bishops. They made them blink.
I fear that if a vote were made today, the great majority of U.S. bishops would go along with the Connecticut bishops.
There will be a persecution.
 “No one is allowed to act with a doubtful conscience. The obligation in such circumstances is to resolve the doubt. If one is in doubt where there is a law forbidding a particular action, one should obtain advice, first by determining the teaching of the Church and then by asking someone in a position to know the answer.” Catholicism and Ethics: A Medical/Moral Handbook, Rev. Edward J. Hayes, Rev. Msgr. Paul J. Hayes, Dorothy Ellen Kelly, r.n., and James J. Drummey, p. 50.
Brazil Bishop: Excommunication for those who use or distribute morning after pill...
LifeSiteNews reported on January 28, 2008:
Brazilian Archbishop Jose Cardoso Sobrinho has condemned a plan by Recife city officials to distribute the morning-after pill during the upcoming Carnival festival and has warned that those who use the pill are subject to excommunication.
"This policy is wicked and immoral, and in this case, both those who use it and those who incite its use are committing a crime punishable by excommunication," Archbishop Cardoso said.
The Archbishop also noted that distribution of the abortifacient pill "is aberrant and illegal," since abortion is illegal in Brazil.
The Archbishop's stand against this "aberrant and illegal" plan may fly in the face of government initiatives, but falls in line with the opinions of most Brazilian citizens.
A new poll carried out by the Datafolha firm in Brazil has revealed that 87% of Brazilians think that having an abortion is "morally wrong," and that less than 1% of those surveyed approve of abortion for any reason.
"The result of the research is a cold shower for the pro-abortion strategy of Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao and shows a clear tendency that we have seen in recent polls. The government's pro-abortion campaigns are at odds with the real Brazil," said Carlos Alberto di Franco, professor of Journalistic Ethics at the University of Navarra in Brazil.
"Brazilians are against abortion. It's not just an opinion, it is a fact statistically measured in an opinion poll. Only because of this does the government move more slowly. There are moral issues that go beyond mere statistics; but the legalization of abortion, today and right now, would be a completely anti-democratic act," Di Franco added.
Recife, with a population of about 1.4 million, hosts one of Brazil's most colorful and frenzied carnivals. According to Mayor Joao Paulo Lima e Silva the morning-after-pills will not be given out wantonly, but rather for cases of rape and broken condoms.
Bishop Antonio Augusto Dias Duarte of the Life and Family Commission of the National Conference of Brazilian Bishops said, "The church has nothing against having fun during carnival, but the banalization of human sexuality is something we cannot tolerate. It will only serve to diminish inhibitions and encourage orgiastic behavior. Though the pill is marketed as a contraceptive, critics say it prompts abortion. The church opposes both."
Bishop Duarte also criticized the federal government's plan to distribute millions of condoms nationwide during the festivities, ostensibly to help fight AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases in the world's largest Roman Catholic country.
Honduran Bishops Warn "Morning After" Pill is Grounds For Excommunication...
LifeSiteNews reported on February 10, 2004:
The Catholic bishops of Honduras have denounced a campaign to distribute the "morning-after" pill in their country, and warned the faithful that complicity in abortion is grounds for excommunication.
In a joint public statements, the Honduran bishops said that the morning-after pill "is abortifacient, since it deliberately and directly ends the life of a human being immediately after conception." The bishops add that "abortion is an abominable crime."
In the statement on church moral teaching, that could be applied to Catholics anywhere in the world, the bishops state, "It is not possible to be living members of the Body of Christ, the Church, and also to be accomplices in abortion. Those who are involved are offending the God of life, and cutting themselves off from communion with the Body of Christ."
To express concerns to the Vatican:
Pontifical Academy for Life:
To email the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith:
Cardinal William Levada
"We warned you over and over again, through years of visitations upon earth--My Mother going to and fro to warn you, that those who have given themselves over to debasement, by the practice of homosexuality, birth control, abortion and all other aberrations that bring sorrow to My Mother's heart--this must be stopped now. There shall be no excuse accepted in Heaven by the saints, nor by My Mother and I, or the Eternal Father and the Holy Ghost, for what you are doing upon earth now." - Jesus, June 6, 1987
“Permissiveness shall not be accepted by your God. Sin is sin; there is no compromise for sin. Mortal sin is a grievous offense to the Eternal Father. The Commandments shall be followed without permissiveness.” – Jesus, November 21, 1977
Vatican: “The Church has always taught the intrinsic evil of contraception”
"The Church has always taught the intrinsic evil of contraception, that is, of every marital act intentionally rendered unfruitful. This teaching is to be held as definitive and irreformable."
- "Vademecum for Confessors: Concerning Some Aspects of the Morality of Conjugal Life," #4, Vatican Pontifical Council for the Family, March 1, 1997.
"From the ethical standpoint the same absolute unlawfulness of abortifacient procedures also applies to distributing, prescribing and taking the morning-after pill. All who, whether sharing the intention or not, directly co-operate with this procedure, are also morally responsible for it."
- “Statement on the So-Called Morning After Pill,” Vatican Pontifical Council for Life, October 31, 2000.
Pope Benedict XVI warned against dispensing drugs that have the goal of preventing the implantation of the human embryo: "It is not possible to anesthetize the conscience, for example, when it comes to molecules whose aim is to stop an embryo implanting or to cut short someone's life... I invite your federation [of pharmacists] to consider conscientious objection which is a right that must be recognized for your profession so you can avoid collaborating, directly or indirectly, in the supply of products which have clearly immoral aims, for example abortion or euthanasia..."
- Pope Benedict XVI, address to Catholic Pharmacists, October 29, 2007.
On June 5, 1987, Pope John Paul II warned clergy and theologians of their grave obligation to faithfully transmit the Church’s teaching on contraception: “A grave responsibility derives from this: those who place themselves in open conflict with the law of God, authentically taught by the Church, guide spouses along a false path. The Church’s teaching on contraception does not belong to the category of matter open to free discussion among theologians. Teaching the contrary amounts to leading the moral consciences of spouses into error.”
- "The Church's teaching on contraception is not a matter for free discussion among theologians," L'Osservatore Romano, July 6, 1987, p. 12.
On September 17, 1983, Pope John Paul II told priests in Rome that “contraception is to be judged objectively so profoundly unlawful as never to be, for any reason, justified. To think or to say the contrary is equal to maintaining that, in human life, situations may arise in which it is lawful not to recognize God as God.”
- quotation from “The Papal
Talk of 17 Sept.,” The [Hartford] Catholic Transcript, David Q. Liptak,
January 20, 1984.
"In fact, just as man does
not have unlimited dominion over his body in general, so also, with particular
reason, he has no such dominion over his generative faculties as such, because
of their intrinsic ordination towards raising up life, of which God is the
principle. 'Human life is sacred,' Pope John XXIII recalled; 'from its very
inception it reveals the creating hand of God.'
"In conformity with these landmarks in the human and Christian vision of marriage, we must once again declare that the direct interruption of the generative process already begun, and, above all, directly willed and procured abortion, even if for therapeutic reasons, are to be absolutely excluded as licit means of regulating birth.
"Equally to be excluded, as the teaching authority of the Church has frequently declared, is direct sterilization, whether perpetual or temporary, whether of the man or of the woman. Similarly excluded is every action which, either in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible."
- Pope Paul VI, encyclical Humanae Vitae, July 25, 1968 (#13-14).
Asked what he would do if pushed on the issue by the state, Bishop Sheridan indicated that he would likely rather have the Church pull out of hospitals than compromise the faith. "If I personally were being pushed on this and had to make the decision by myself, I'd have to question whether or not we could continue that particular ministry if the state were going to force us to act contrary to Catholic teaching, to the Catholic conscience," he told LifeSiteNews.com.
Bishop Sheridan concluded, "How could you continue to call yourself Catholic if you were doing things that were contrary to Catholic teaching even if you were being forced by the state to do them?"
- “Colorado Springs Bishop Says He Does Not and Would Not Permit Plan B in Catholic Hospitals”, LifeSiteNews.com, October 10, 2007.
The truth is that there is absolutely no doubt about how the Plan B pills work. Just ask the manufacturer, Barr Pharmaceuticals, whose product insert states: "This product works mainly by preventing ovulation (egg release). It may also prevent fertilization of a released egg (joining of sperm and egg) or attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus (implantation)." (My italics.) It's that third item that makes Plan B an abortion-causing drug. The same can be said for every chemical contraceptive.
- Human Life International President: "Plan A: Keep 'Plan B' out of Catholic hospitals", LifeSiteNews.com, October 5, 2007.
“The Vatican did not need to invent any new teaching on the Plan B pills because these pills fall into the category of abortifacient contraception, pure and simple. The consistent teaching of our Church on abortion applies here.”
- Fr. Thomas J. Euteneuer, quotation from “A ‘seriously flawed’ decision in Connecticut,” The [Los Angeles] Tidings, October 19, 2007.
"Abortion and euthanasia are thus crimes which no human law can claim to legitimize. There is no obligation in conscience to obey such laws; instead there is a grave and clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection."
- Pope John Paul II, encyclical The Gospel of Life, #73, March 25, 1995.
excommunication affects all those who commit this crime with knowledge of the
penalty attached, and thus includes those accomplices without which the crime
would not have been committed."
- Pope John Paul II, encyclical The Gospel of Life, #62, March 25, 1995.

These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995:
"I say this for this reason: the Eternal Father is much disturbed at the numbers of abortions being committed throughout your country and the world. These numbers go upwards to fifty to sixty million in one year throughout the world." - Our Lady, June 18, 1986
TREATED AS GARBAGE
"O My child, My tears fall upon you all when I see all of the innocent little babies being slaughtered . . . cast into garbage pails like nothing but dirt and scum. They are living human beings! And all murderers shall get their just recompense." - Our Lady, March 18, 1983
"Doctors now are profaning their profession, those who have given themselves over to destroying human life in abortions." - Jesus, June 6, 1987
FOULEST OF DEEDS
"Our hearts are torn because of the wanton murder of the young by evil man. Abortion, My children, is murder, the most foulest of deeds, that is punishable by death! And what is worse than death of the soul?
"I say unto you, as your Mother, that any man or woman who performs or takes part of this abomination of the murder of the unborn shall be given a heavy penance upon earth, or if this penance is not given upon earth, that person found guilty in the eyes of his God shall suffer eternal damnation in the fires of hell." - Our Lady, December 28, 1976
"The torment that will be visited upon those who murder the innocent shall be eternal damnation and feasting their eyes upon the murdered souls." - Our Lady, May 10, 1972
SAINTS CRY OUT FOR PUNISHMENT
"Oh, the greatest of sorrow is upon Our hearts because of the loss of the little ones. Your country, My child, and many countries throughout your world, shall do great penance for the murders of the young, the abortions, the murders being committed in your country. The saints in Heaven cry out for punishment upon a wicked generation. Never in the past, in all the slaughters of history, has there been such wanton killing of the young and the innocent! I say unto you, as your God, you shall be brought down to your knees! You, evil mankind, you shall be cleansed in a bloodbath!” - Jesus, February 1, 1977

Jesus - "Pray and wear your sacramentals. And, also, My children, I ask you again to place a crucifix upon your door. Both front and back doors must have a crucifix. I say this to you because there will be carnage within your areas, and this will pass you by if you keep your crucifix upon your doors."

Our Lord stated we must have crucifixes upon the outside of all of our outside doors. In the "Heaven’s Home Protection Packet" there are instructions, four crucifixes, and a tube of special cement for wooden or metal crucifixes.

Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers promises to help protect our
children. On September 13, 1977, She said, "He has an army of ogres wandering
now throughout your country and all of the countries of the world. They are in
possession of great power; so wear your sacramentals, and protect your children
and your households. Learn the use every day of holy water throughout your
household. Insist even with obstructions, insist that your children always wear
a sacramental. One day they will understand that they will repel the demons."
On February 1, 1974, Our Lady said, "My children, know the value of these sacramentals. Guard your children well. You must awaken to the knowledge that you will not be protected without the sacramentals. Guard your children's souls. They must be surrounded with an aura of purity. Remove them if necessary from the sources of contamination, be it your schools or even false pastors."
