day, more children are being murdered. On
average, one child is killed daily, as often as
seconds by abortion - for a total of thousands
of killings every day. The killings by abortion are violent and may be painful for the
child. These children
had done nothing wrong; they were killed for the 'convenience' of their
mothers, even though it was due to their own mothers' actions that they
were conceived. They never had a voice or a vote. Most of these aborted children never received baptism.

Archbishop's Homily, 30th Anniversary of the Tragic
Supreme Court Ruling, January 22, 2003:
can we not say, that like the man of the Gospel, our country stands
before the world. Its one hand is healthy and whole, dispensing the
ideals which we associate with America: freedom, opportunity, justice,
kindness, and self-sacrifice. But on the other side, in truth's naked
light, what do we see, but a hand withered with an evil beyond belief: a
twisted, deformed hand which signs into law privileges of privacy
permitting murder - a withered hand which dispenses protection to
builders of death mills, abortion mills - a withered hand which embraces
in the guarantees of equal protection, the comings and goings of
executioners of innocent babes in the womb, who wield the knives and
instruments of infant murder for the sake of profit, calling it a matter
of choice, a matter of 'reproductive freedom.' Perhaps it was this
withered hand which our Lord saw, in the boundless distance of His
vision - a hand sickened and twisted by the one-day plague of January 22,
1973, the day of Roe vs. Wade - a day not confined to memory, but a day of
living infamy, with 30 years of unceasing murder, as an open wound on
this country - 30 years and 40 million unborn children - 40 million lives
denied. Can we even wonder why God, who chose to be born on earth as
compassionate, forgiving, and full of hope, would be aggrieved so
deeply? Can we even wonder why, with the unprecedented greatness of this
country's natural and human resources why our Lord should be angry, to
see it all compromised and distorted by this incredible stain of crime
and guilt - the crime of having annihilated 40 million lives for
expediency, and the guilt of trying to live with that knowledge?"
