Europe facing demographic "catastrophe"

Lifesitenews.com has a horrifying story up. You can read it here.

There are some truly horrible statistics. Take this paragraph for example:

The study found that the annual number of abortions in the EU equals the entire combined population of its ten smallest member states, with the three top aborting countries being Britain, France and Romania. In Europe there is one abortion every 25 seconds, for a total of more than 1,200,000 abortions a year. 19 percent of all European pregnancies end in abortion and 28 million children have been killed by abortion since 1990, making abortion the main cause of death in Europe.
 Read that again:
  • Effectively 1 in 5 pregancies ends in abortion;
  • There is an abortion every 25 seconds;
  • 1,2 million abortions a year;
  • 28 million legal murders since 1990;
  • Abortion is the main cause of death in Europe
Truly the worship of Moloch is alive and well.

In our present social context, marked by a dramatic struggle between the culture of life and the culture of death, there is need to develop a deep critical sense capable of discerning true values and authentic needs. Pope John Paul II - Evangelium Vitae
