Food for Thought - MCCL Biship Cozzen - May 15, 2023
Joining Tom in the studio is Bishop Andrew Cozzens to share a very interesting story. At 20 weeks, his mother's water broke. After some tests, a doctor told his mother that her child was severely deformed and encouraged her to terminate her pregnancy. She asked for a new doctor and spent the next four months in bed. Bishop Cozzens expresses his gratefulness for his parents choosing to accept the life of their child no matter what it would look like. He was born a month early and to all appearances was normal, they discovered he was allergic to the amniotic fluid and other things as well which is the only lingering affect of his unusual birth experience. He also recounts his pro-life efforts when in college as a peaceful, non-violent protestor blocking an entrance to an abortion clinic. He knows of children who are alive because their mothers could not enter the building to have an abortion. His experience also granted him opportunities to share the value of life with other people in his process of being jailed and sentenced. He states the importance of consistently standing up for the dignity of every human life because cheapening one life cheapens all life. He urges us to build a culture where all life is reverenced.
