Andrea Bocelli: Not merely anti-abortion, but pro-life!

From CNA
Following the popular video in which he recounts how his mother ignored the advice of doctors to have an abortion, tenor Andrea Bocelli said he does not want his testimony to be considered as merely anti-abortion, but also in support of life.

“Because of my personal convictions as a devout Catholic, [now that is true Catholic identity!] I am not only fighting against something, I am fighting for something - and I am for life,” he told the Italian newspaper, Il Foglio.

Bocelli said he wants his video “to help comfort those who are in difficult situations and who sometimes just need to feel that they are not alone. Life is hard, but we need to listen, we need to open our ears” to embrace them.

Bocelli said he has been surprised by the calls he has received following the video.  “I said those things a year and a half ago in a video message for Father Richard Frechette, a missionary who works with children in Haiti and deserves to have a book written just about him. I gave a concert to help him build the Home of the Angels and he asked me to say a few words of hope for mothers in difficult circumstances and I decided to tell the story of my birth.”

“I did so recounting the private experience of my mother without asking her permission, but she didn’t admonish me. I wasn’t ready for all the uproar it has created,” Bocelli said. [You see in today's world, you speak about the defense of life then you get an uproar!  What kind of a world are we living in right now?!]

 As a young boy, he continued, “I was very hyper and quite naïve.” He said he has loved music ever since he was a boy. “My mother tells me that I would cry whenever I heard a song, even through the wall from another room in the hospital.  I would turn towards the sound and listen with glee.”


The Mother Goddess, Oprah Winfrey once said that she is not pro-abortion but that she is pro-choice.  Now that is a dumb answer!  All human beings have a choice!  That is in our nature.  We are free to do whatever we like.  But in a civilized society, we have laws to prevent chaos, to prevent billions of people doing whatever they want, when they want it and how they want to do it, without anyone telling them what to do.  Even the free thinkers who tell you "to not let anyone tell you what to do." would not want disorder and chaos.

If the freedom to do whatever we want to do is the case, then no one can stop you and me from killing each other because everyone if pro-choice!  I made a choice and no one dare tell me what to do!

That is the fallacy of pro-abortion advocates, which tragically some who call themselves human or Catholic at that, are promoting!

You can't see the reasoning behind it.
