“The hairsplitting difference between formed and unformed makes no difference to us. Whoever deliberately commits abortion is subject to the penalty for homicide.” -Saint Basil

In the time of St Basil, the pagan Romans were practicing abortion, but Christians could not conceive of doing such a thing. Christianity has rejected abortion from it’s inception. We do not wish the women today to be put in jail, they suffer enough from their abortion. But any doctor who goes against the Hippocratic Oath goes against their very profession and purpose in life. They will most certainly suffer the detainment of eternity if they do not suffer it here.

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
