Abortion: Nothing Less Than Government Approved Violence

Tea Party activists around the United States are gathering and expressing their conviction that government has to be limited, that the power resides in the people, and that elected officials are not our rulers, but rather our representatives.
The most egregious example of government control and intrusion into our lives is actually abortion. By legalizing it, our government has claimed power over human rights, and the ability to declare some human beings not worthy of protection.
Abortion is nothing less than government approved violence, and if government can approve violence against any one group of people, it has violated the principle that keeps all the other groups safe.

Limited, representative government means government that understands that it has no veto power over human rights, starting with the right to life itself.

–Fr. Frank
