The abortion of babies is only a consequence of the abortion of souls

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Authentic Catholics know of the horrors of abortion, of the killing of hundreds of millions of children in the womb and as they are born.

But what we scarcely consider is that this is not simply a consequence of the decision of parents to refuse children they conceive, it is the fruit of a much deeper sin.

And that sin does not really have a name, which is why it is ignored.

But here I will try to name it:  the abortion of souls.

But this name, I do not mean the wilful destruction of the souls of children in the womb, That indeed is a diabolic sin, since no child without baptism has hope of eternal salvation. For God never promised the salvation of children in the womb, only of children born.  Indeed, in Sacred Scripture the death of children in the womb is reckoned as a punishment for sin and a sentence of damnation.

That is a great sin.

But I am speaking, in this article, about something worse.

The sin by which a person decided to cut himselff off from God and other persons and set himself up as the sole point of reference.

Perhaps you can call this the sin of Satanic pride.  Since that is the only analogue for it.

This sin is not only the root of abortion, in the sense of killing a child in the womb.

This sin is the cause of all immorality which regards God or one’s neighbor. It is the consumation of all pride and the defacto cutting oneself off from all society.

It is the sin which merits directly and formally all the punishments of Hell, where there is absolutely no society.

And this is the sin of our age.

I encounter it frequently in attempting to excecute my duties as President of the Italian, Catholic political party, “L’Italia per gli Italiani” (Italy for Italians). As a party we strive to be willing to collaborate with all of good will so as to save Italy in every sense of the words.  But frequently I find that other groups only want that others serve them.  They have absolutely no formal or practical interest in saving Italy in any way whatsoever.

Such organizations suffer from the same sin of spiritual abortion. They have cut themselves off from the whole of society, and have only interest in that the society serves them, not they it.

When a nation falls into such a sin, it is easy for the malign to carve it up. Because it is already dead. Dead like a cadaver where there is no life forcde at any level to keep it whole or guard it whole.

As Catholics we must be servants of the Ressurected One, Who gives Life and raises the dead.  Only when we live entirely for Him can we serve others and work to lead them back to Him, Who is Life and overflows with life.

And this is our mission in the present time.

Let us fight to save children in the womb, and let us preach these truths to save all those around us from aborting themselves from grace, salvation and human society by this sin of pride.

  1. Your statement that “no child without baptism has hope of eternal salvation” doesn ‘t seem to fit the Holy Innocents whose feast day is celebrated on 28 December. I know they were killed by Herod who believed one of them could have been Jesus & that is why they were saved, but being from Jewish families it would be probable they wouldn’t have been baptised in any case if they had been allowed to live. Why can’t any baby born or unborn, made in the image & likeness of God who implanted a soul at conception into a body He knew was going to be wilfully murdered before it could have been baptised or, indeed, have any say in the matter, be also regarded as innocent? Where does baptism by desire lock in, or does this only pertain to involuntary abortion?

    1. Those little ones who are killed out of hatred of Jesus Christ, die as martyrs, and thus receive what the Fathers and Doctors of the Church call the baptism of blood, which is a metaphorical name to explain the efficacy of dying as a passive martyr. Passive martyrdom is when one is killed out of hatred of Jesus Christ, without knowing it. For example, if a person was wearing a jacket with a cross on the backside, and was shot by a hater of Christ who thought that person was Christian, that person, if they were not in the state of mortal sin, would be saved. God does this because He vindicates His Name and all who are killed out of hatred of His Holy Name He saves as a way of taking vengence against those who take vengeance on Himself. So in the article above, I am speaking of children killed by abortion for other motives not out of hatred for the faith. Obviously, if a catholic mother was forcibly held down and given an abortion, because she was Catholic, her child would be a martyr.

    2. The Devotion to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, among many other prayers gives this one for the baptism and salvation of aborted babies:

      “Heavenly Father, Your Love is eternal. In your ocen of love, you saved the world through your only begotted son, Jesus Christ.
      Now look at your only son on the cross who is constantly bleeding for love of his people, and forgive your world.
      Purify and baptise aborted children with the Precious Blood and Water from the sacred Side of Your Son, who hung dead on the cross for their salvation., in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
      May they through the Holy Death of Jesus Christ gain everlasting life, through his Wounds be healed, and through his Precious Blod be freed. There to rejoice with the Saints in Heaven. Amen.

      (Through this Prayer large numbers of innocent unborn Babies will be saved. Pray it Daily and make it Known to the world. anyone who teaches it will not be Lost… (29 July 1998)). ”

      This prayer is consistent with the doctrine of the Church mentioned above, about baptism being required to enter Heaven.

  2. Funny. For as I reflected today in the light of current events, something similar to this notion occurred to me: “those who are lost, not content with having kicked God out of their own lives, are now actively and furiously committed to kicking God out of the lives of others too”.
    We can see this in the so-called sanitary measures that result in the massive closure of churches, or that allow them to be opened with the condition that the Holy Eucharist be sacrilegiously administered.
    Even many who call themselves Christians are self-aborted souls that are now ambassadors of Hell, actively trying to abort the souls of others.
