"The Disobedience of Adam and Eve," Michelangelo's fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, closely follows the description in the Book of Genesis of the serpent tricking Adam and Eve into eating the forbidden fruit.

To the Catholic Sentinel:

God created us in his own image with spiritual and immortal free-willing souls so that all of us can share his love on earth and forever in heaven. As in Genesis, with our inalienable right to life, he gave us power to procreate, telling our first parents to multiply and create free-will individuals of worship and respect for all loving and all powerful creator.

We know through natural law and God’s revelation that to kill an innocent life and to bastardize our procreation is evil and abominable.
Knowing this, how can anyone promote abortion and contraception? What could be better to avoid AIDS, syphilis, and unwanted pregnancies than abstinence and virginity?

Thank God our Constitution protects our inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Peter Heitkemper
