At last night's Opening Mass for the National Prayer Vigil for Life, Cardinal Seán O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston, gave a fantastic homily comparing "reproductive rights" to the emperor's new clothes. Those of us who espouse a Catholic view on abortion and see the inherent fraud in morality based solely on personal choice feel disempowered to speak up. We feel like we're the crazy ones. But we can't be deceived like the crowd in the Hans Christian Andersen story. Here's the footage of his entire homily, and you can find the text of Cardinal Seán's homily below.
