A one-minute-old zygote is as much of a human personas you.

All souls a valuable to God. 1 minute or 99 years old.

Perfectly happy with pro-abortion women going on a permanent sex strike.

The Blessed Virgin Mary was a one minute old zygote without sin.

Here he goes again, the favourite antipriest Martina of antipope berGOGlio.

More prima facie evidence from the Pied Piper of sodomy James Martin LGBTQWXYZSJ to support the suppression of the Jesuit order, again.

Father Martin....you were once a one-minute-old zygote; and no one obliterated you. How dare you....monstrous!
Hound of Heaven
Smacks of 'size-ism' to me (and didn't he also just 'disenfranchise' the "zygote" with that 'Second' statement. His Tweet (I always think that should be 'twit' but then again that may be the sender and not the message) conjures up the Orwellian "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others." Rather odious.

Where's the logic in that statement? Is one life sacred-er than the other?

So Jim, what’s different about the two? It has the same DNA as it will when it dies, regardless of how long that takes to happen. It’s a lot smaller, I will grant, but, wasn’t it (the racist) Dr. Seuss who wrote, “A person is a person, no matter how small?” Also, zygotes aren’t being killed at abortion clinics (though they may be aborted by abortifacient “contraception”).

Babies with heartbeats, who are at least partially developed are killed by abortionists, which you well know, which makes you, Fr. Martin, a liar.

A zygote has a soul. Francis' church doesn't consider the soul...

Jimmy Jesuitical's homily on the Annunciation must be fun. Here the Word was made flesh.... right there in Mary's childhood home. Quick! Still time to snuff it out because it's inconvenient.

Well Fr Martin it appears that you don't understand the fundamental tenent of the Church in that when fertilization takes place God infuses that human with a soul, so no it is not a zygote as you believe. Your views are no different than an atheist.

It is all communist dialectic in the end.

All of these leftist priests are hurting the church. My local parish have great priests but if we get a leftist priest or if we get a leftist bishop or worst apostate pope is time for me to go to a SSPX or SSPV am studying Latin just in case

@Ramon L Rios here in the UK, I feel exactly as you do. Already driving 3 or more hours to Latin Mass, but feel I am just a hand-full of Papal decisions and Synodial recommendations away from joining the SSPX. God helps us with the choices we have to make in the next couple of years.
