We could think these are stories of long time ago. When we support the elimination of babies by abortion and contraception, we say to these « unwanted » members of Jesus’ body, « I do not need you » (1 Cor 12:21). Can we even call ourselves Christians if we have so much
disdain for Jesus’ Body that we don’t care if millions of members of His Body are murdered or never given a chance to exist? Can we call ourselves Christians if we have so little regard for Christ’s Body that we don’t mind if His Body is weakened, disfigured, or paralyzed by the absence of many millions of members worldwide?
