Following a high profile endorsement, Jane Dittmar, the Democrat candidate for Virginia’s Fifth District congressional seat can no longer hide beneath a veil of obfuscation when it comes to abortion.
A nominal “Catholic,” Dittmar has been strangely silent on the topic throughout many months of campaigning—and a complicit media has not asked the questions that immediately would have been posed to any Republican candidate who had not made clear his or her stance on abortion.
Emily’s List is described as:
An American political action committee (PAC) that aims to help elect pro-choice Democratic female candidates to office. It was founded by Ellen Malcolm in 1985. According to the Washington Examiner, Emily’s List is “the nation’s most influential pro-choice political action committee.” [emphasis added]
Interestingly, Dittmar’s campaign, which has been prolific in sending media releases, has not yet acknowledged the endorsement via email, Facebook, or on its website.
But Emily’s List is not the only abortion promoter supporting Dittmar.
While Candidate Dittmar is glad-handing fellow parishioners at her Downtown Charlottesville Catholic Church and making political appearances at the Charlottesville Catholic School, do those encountering Jane know that she is in diametric conflict with Catholic Catechism teachings:
2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:
You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.75
God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.76
In the real world, Jane Dittmar cannot be “pro-choice” and Catholic.
Jane Dittmar must choose one or the other.
Jane Dittmar must worship Yahweh or worship Molech.
There is no grey area. Jane Dittmar’s “choice” will have eternal consequences.
