When life begins is a mystery, writer claims

A Brazilian priest holds one of the mock fetuses distributed at churches in Rio de Janeiro and carried to altars during Mass.
To the Catholic Sentinel:
This concerns Yvonne Braun’s letter, “Be consistent, Governor.” It is facile to say, “substitute the word ‘executions’ with the word ‘abortion.’” Why not also substitute the word “executions” with the word “war”?
When “life begins” is still a mystery. Because our Church wills to err on the side of love and mercy, we safeguard life from conception to natural death. Still, there are many miscarriages. What do you say when a pregnancy is aborted naturally?
