“They took the life of an innocent,” Sobrinho told TIME in a telephone interview.
The doctors and the mother of the pregnant girl took the life of the twins. Exactly how innocent were those twins? Aren’t we all born into original sin?
Why I ask this, is because of what the Bishop says next
“Abortion is much more serious than killing an adult. An adult may or may not be an innocent, but an unborn child is most definitely innocent. Taking that life cannot be ignored.”
Why should the taking of any life be ignored. If the doctrine of original sin is true, the babies aren’t innocent just like adults who get murdered. Someone out there explain to me why I shouldn’t think this holy man has lost his marbles? Isn’t all life sacred or is some more sacred than others?
If a unborn baby is innocent, why have there been theologians dating back to St. Augustine who proposed unbaptized children who died didn’t go to heaven but instead go to limbo? If they’re innocent, they should go to be with God. Aborted babies weren’t baptized, and those who commit that act can be excommuicated for taking their lives. It would seem to reason the babies get entry to heaven, right?
