This is transcript # 11 of 12 of Fr. Greg Staab O.M.V. tape, What Happened at Fatima ?.
“If all such victims (of rape) were given generous love and support many more than at the present would carry their babies to term. Women who have been raped and abort their children also experience Post Abortion Syndrome. (PAS) Rape was done to her. She was not responsible for that, but by contrast the abortion would be done by her and she will feel guilty about that.
“It is also her baby and it’s a distinct innocent human life. No exception to the law should be made for incest. Incest has not been studied very much. But should an innocent child be put to death because of her father? No! Wisdom however, clearly dictates that the child should be put up for adoption.
“Often the abuser is the one who demands that there be an abortion. The one who is abusing the young girl wants the abortion and why does he want it? In this way he can hide his abuse and continue to abuse her. The young girl becomes thus a victim of not only sexual abuse but also the abortion. Just like rape, pregnancy is very rare in cases of incense.
“What is really going to help the woman, obviously not aborting the child. It’s the gift of self to love one another. That’s what produces happiness. When we sacrifice ourselves to serve another human being, that’s what is going to produce real happiness within an individual’s life.
“This is a story that comes from a Catechism. This 7 year old girl and she was asked to give blood to her brother for a blood transfusion. And the girl said she’ll do it. Then nurse came to take the blood and the girl began to cry and the nurse said are you sure you want me to take your blood for your brother? And she said yes do so. And the blood transfusion went fine. And afterwards, the nurse came back and said, why, why did you cry? She said that I thought that giving my blood would mean that I was going to die.
“This little girl was only 7 years old. And she already understood the meaning of human existence which is to give our lives for others. And that is what produces happiness.
“We all probably know the story of Gianna Beretta Molla. She died at age of 40 in 1962. And she died in order to give her life for her child so that her child would be born. She died about a week after the child was born. And she died with this tremendous fervor filled with love. And she has a happiness now, that we can’t even imagine. – Eye has not seen or ear heard, nor has it entered into the hearts of men what God has prepared for those who love him and who love others. - Who are willing to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others.
“What can we do about the situation that we find ourselves in? That it is the greatest evil that has ever existed in the history of our country, and we should be clearly aware of that. It is murder. For many more people are murdered just even in one year you have in all of the wars put together in the whole history of our country. We can’t even comprehend what it means, 40 million people that is just surgical abortions and doesn’t count the chemical abortions which are about another 14 million every year.
“The first and most obvious area is the reality of voting, voting. – First of all, should we even be voting for this issue! Absolutely not! It is absurd that we are voting for this. It doesn’t matter what the majority of the people think? Doesn’t make any difference? We have to respect every human being from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death….
“It is very interesting to relate this with the Supreme Court Decision of 1973 (Roe vs. Wade) to the Dred Scott Decision of 1857. In both cases, it was 7 Supreme Court Justices against 2. And before in the case of 1857, they ruled that a human being can be a piece of property. You can buy a piece of property; you can sell a piece of property. And they could even kill the piece of property if they felt it was useless in some way to them. Great evil permitted by the Supreme Court! Incredible! Incredible! It shows again the blindness, the blindness that existed and the same blindness exists in our country, innocent human beings who do not have the rights of personhood. They can be killed within the womb. We shouldn’t be voting for it. Let’s say there was a group of people who wanted to vote. Let’s vote on whether slavery should be permitted again. Absolutely absurd! And yet if the majority of the people in the country began to think that if slavery was OK, we would vote for it. That’s the mentality of our country….”
