Si Fractus Fortis in Abortion

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read this: Clergy bless New York abortion clinic as “sacred ground”

Please pray for these people. They are putting their immortal souls in terrible danger, especially since as teachers they come under double judgment.

First, Moloch, horrid King, besmeared with blood
Of human sacrifice, and parents’ tears;
Though, for the noise of drums and timbrels loud,
Their children’s cries unheard that passed through fire
To his grim idol. Him the Ammonite
Worshiped in Rabba and her watery plain,
In Argob and in Basan, to the stream
Of utmost Arnon. Nor content with such
Audacious neighbourhood, the wisest heart
Of Solomon he led by fraud to build
His temple right against the temple of God
On that opprobrious hill, and made his grove
The pleasant valley of Hinnom, Tophet thence
And black Gehenna called, the type of Hell.” 
( Paradise Lost, i. 391-405)
