Abortion is one of the gravest crimes a man or woman can commit. It is so abhorrent to God, not only because it is murder—and the blood of the innocent shall cry out to God for vengeance from the ground where it is spilled—but also because it is a spiritual interdiction, a muffling of even the possibility of baptism for the children who die so cruelly. Human life is sacred, but this abominable sin squelches it when it has scarcely begun, and it leaves their fate uncertain. What happens to infants and children who die unbaptized, especially those who are murdered in so cruel and hideous a way as by abortion? The short answer is that we do not know. Some, however, have been granted inklings.
Here, in this short but chilling book, find the story of a woman haunted by seven infants she had had aborted in the course of her married life. Told at the request of the woman by her confessor later in life, Fr. Domenico Mondrone, Mama! Why Did You Kill Us? is difficult to read but essential to understanding the painful gravity and horror of abortion, as well as the mercy and redemption possible to the repentant. God longs to give to those who have committed such a grave offense this mercy, if they are contrite—just as with any other sin. Heed the words of this poor woman, who, in her desire for atonement, said, "I would not want the same thing to happen to any mother."
