God is Pro-Choice

Reclaiming an abused phrase, God is entirely "pro-choice." He gave us freedom in the first place. But some choices negate our vocation to love. Some choices can never bring happiness. We are "free" in a sense to "do whatever we want with our bodies." However, we're not free to determine whether what we do with our bodies is good or evil.
