ci liiiMMiuu wiin Miiiiue, L.uuiui, unii" a
Irish catholics. There is nothing in pro
testantism that encourages, or connives at
it, but there is vast ignorance as to the
milt of the thinu. Hut in the catholic
cliurcli, human life is guarded, at all stag
es, by the confessional, by stern denouncc-
ment and by fearful cxcominunications.
The rule in the catholic church is unhending
"Sedulam operam dent Sacerdotc., ut
quantum poterunt, impediant illud salus
quo adhibitis chirnrgicis instrumentis in-
fans in utero interhcitur. Omnis ttctua
(piorumque teinporegestationisedilus bap
tizetur, vel absolute. si eonstet dcvita;
vel sub conditione, nisi cvidenter pateat
cuni vita carere."
The J?oman Catholic bishop of lioston
says, clocpiently and powerfully, "The
very instant conception has taken place,
there lies the vital jjerm of a man. True
., . , . i , - .i n i .1 , i ti , t
it is hrdden m the darkne.-s ol thc womb,
, - , , , , . i i i .
and it is helpleas ; but has sacred rights,
r v i i l .i
founded on God ? law, and so much thc
more to be respected because it is lielpless.
It may he already a living man, for nei
ther mothers nor physieians can tell when
life is infused ; they can only tell whcn
its presence is manifested, and there is a
wicle difference between the two things.
At any rate, it is from the first niomeut
potentially and in radia a man, with a
bodv and soul dcstined most surely by thc
will of the Creator and by his law, to be
developed into the fullness of huuiuii ex-
lstence. jNo one can prevent tliat devel-
opment without resisting and annulling
onc of the most sacred and important
laws e.-tablished by the Divine Author of
the universe, and he is a ctimmal and a
munlerer who deals an exterininating blow
to the incipient man, and drives back into
notningr.ess a oemg 10 wnom ltou uesign
ed to give a living body and an immortal
soul. From this it follows that the young
woman whose virtue has proved an iusuf
ficient guardian to her honor, when she
seeks by abortion to save in the eyes of
man thc honor she has forfeited, incurs
tne auuitionai anu ueeper guut ot murder
