Champion of Choice or serial killer?

A West Philadelphia abortion mill is raided and police discover fetuses displayed in jars like trophies.
A doctor friend of mine was fired for calling a woman who had several abortions a 'serial killer'. If this doctor is any better than Jeffrey Dahmer, I don't understand how. The utter depravity of this man is sadly, not unusual, according to Fr Euteneuer of HLI who has lectured on the demonic roots of abortion.
Read Creative Minority Report for the shocking story.

Is libreligion disappearing?

from the Catholic League

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the data just released by the National Council of Churches:

The 2010 edition of the Yearbook of American & Canadian Churches is out and the results are strikingly similar to the overall pattern that has been evident for many decades: the more conservative the religion on moral issues, the more it continues to grow (or lose relatively few members); and the more liberal it is, the more it declines.

The big winners as reported in this year’s volume are the Roman Catholic Church, which is up by 1.5 percent; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), which grew by 1.7 percent; and the Assemblies of God, a Pentecostal group, which jumped by 1.3 percent. Catholics now stand at 68 million, literally dwarfing every other religion in the nation. The big losers, as usual, are the mainline Protestant denominations.

What are we to make of this? The more “relevant” a religion tries to be, the more irrelevant it becomes. Seems like everyone save for liberals can figure this out. That’s good news for the traditionalists, and lousy news for the religion-lite crowd. It’s not global warming they should fear, it’s their own demise.

We're starting to make headway

When Dr Caplan of the University of Penn went to Ireland, he saw unusual faces. No, not just because they were Irish, but because Ireland doesn't do abortions, Dr Caplan saw children and adults with Down sydnrome. It struck him that he doesn't see them here in the US, or in Europe where the abortion rate tops 90%.
And he reflects that we are poorer for it. Well done.
As some families with a Down syndrome child have noted, fewer kids with Down may mean fewer public programs, fewer resources in schools and for housing and less political clout. If some genetic diseases begin to fade away, will society’s willingness to provide support for the diminishing numbers of those born with such diseases fade as well? And are we headed to a time when parents who choose not to be genetically tested find themselves condemned as morally irresponsible parents?

Bravo Sarah and Bristol Palin, for taking the vitriol you took for criticizing that vile episode of Family Guy which mocked your darling Trig. You started the discussion that gets the Ivy Leaguers thinking thoughts about where eugenic abortions are taking us as a society, yet I wonder; who was the ignorant one who needed education?

Urgent Medical supplies delayed in Haiti due to condom glut

Tells you a lot about the UN's priorities when a warehouse which was meant to sort medical supplies was 70% full of condoms which prevented needed medical supplies from reaching desperate Haitians. Don't believe they are out to save lives, this is eugenics in action.

For cultures which value life, and family, the condom push into their cultures is highly offensive. Carol Ugochukwu, President of United Families of Africa in Enugu, Nigeria, commented in a 2000 interview noting that Western delegations at the United Nations were trying to "exterminate the whole race" with their promotion of condoms.
Ugochukwu expressed exasperation that Canada, the US and Europe wasted most of the time at UN conferences trying to gain approval for homosexuality while the needs of African women such as food, shelter, and clean drinking water were largely ignored. "[B]ig organizations," she said, "spend so much money, but when they find out you are dealing with all that [dying children and mothers] they are not interested. You have to say you are dealing with reproductive rights before you are given support."

KIDS in National Right to Life "News and Views"

"For the second year in a row, the NRLC offices were graced by the presence of a large contingent from "KIDS" (Keep Infants with Down Syndrome). And for the second year in a row Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers (R-Wa.), who has a son with Down syndrome, met with and spoke to the group."
We members of KIDS are working to make the world more accepting of children with Down syndrome. At National Right to Life we have found kindred spirits, including Rep Cathy McMorris Rogers and her son Cole, age 3, with Down syndrome. Together we are dispelling the myth that aborting babies with disabilities is progress, as each precious life rejected diminishes us all.

Abortion clinics were Hitler's invention

Under Hitler's guidance, the Berlin Chamber of Physicians loosened the Nazis' abortion policy in 1933 so as to use abortion as a tool to exterminate nondesirables. It determined "the health of the mother – considered from all angles – is the decisive factor" for abortions.
 Its a dirty trick. Plant the idea of abortion as a solution to women's 'health' problems, put the clinic in neighborhoods where your target population is, and soon you have women convincing themselves to abort their children, thus lowering the populations of 'undesirables'. Did you think that we invented this?
No, but, thanks to Obama's budget, we'll be paying for it.
The above image will be on a billboard in Poland, where the Nazis first implememented this idea of an abortion clinic. It will be there for world Women's Day on March 8 when pro-aborts demonstrate for the 'right' to an abortion. How very foolish, to play into the hands of eugenicists, and call it 'reproductive freedom'.

Al Gore has to remake himself

Since has admitted that Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia made up the data on global warming, I mean climate change, and Washington DC is buried under a mountain of snow, what is Al Gore going to do to support his lavish lifesyle?
To think that our President almost gave away our global sovereignty for a collossal lie! I am starting to believe the conspiracy theorists who speculate that global warming hoax was merely an attempt at creating global marxism and the accompanying anti-population growth controls on those of us who love children.
"But be that as it may -- the level of deception perpetrated by Jones and his co-conspirators at the Climatic Research Unit will likely remain the yardstick by which climate fraud is measured for years to come….

Obama's budget is full of abortion funding

From Marjorie at the Susan B Anthony List:
Obama just doesn't get it.

Poll after poll (Marist Poll shows that 56% of Americans consider abortion "morally wrong" with people ages 18-30 at a 58% disapproval rate) shows that Americans are increasingly pro-life, and even more Americans don't want their tax dollars spent on funding abortion.

Yet, Obama's proposed 2011 budget doesn't reflect this sentiment. In fact, it does just the opposite, and actually increases taxpayer funding for abortion on-demand both domestically and around the globe.
Under Obama's proposed budget, he asks that American tax dollars are used to:

--Fund the Title X "Family Planning Program" which sends money directly to Planned Parenthood. Obama asked that Title X funding be increased by $10 million this year, which would bring total funding to a staggering $327 million
--Fund Abortions in the District of Columbia because of the loss of the Dornan Amendment

--Fund the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) which promotes Abortion worldwide and works with Population Control officials in China who have promoted Forced Abortions and Sterilizations to enforce their oppressive One-Child Family Planning Policy

--Fund People or Groups that engage in Abortion Litigation under the Legal Services Corporation

Because the truth is, the battle to defend human life in the pending health care bill isn't over, either.
During the pregame Superbowl show, President Obama stated to Katie Couric: "I want to come back [after the Presidents' Day congressional recess] and have a large meeting -- Republicans and Democrats -- to go through, systematically, all the best ideas that are out there, and move it forward."

 We have to keep up the pressure on the White House and Congress to ensure that abortion is not included in health care reform. The abortion lobby is so entrenched within the Democratic Party there is no doubt that they'll do everything they can to get their way.

In fact, the National Organization of Women (NOW) recently urged President Obama to "... hold tight to the values and ideals that he trumpeted" which includes "passing health care reform that recognizes every woman's fundamental right to have access to the full range of health care services, including abortion..."

And President Obama's political arm, Organizing for America, wrote to its members: "It's clear that we're in the fight of our lives to pass real reform" and "we're fighting for our families and our country -- and we don't quit."

Rep Patrick Kennedy won't seek re-election

Could it be that Bishop Tobin has been cleaning house? First he deflects the pernicious gay marriage iniative which seemed unstoppable here in CT. Now he may have influenced Catholics in Rhode Island, the majority of voters, to drop their support for him.

However the announcement that he would not seek re-election came soon after the release of poll figures showing that the Rhode Island lawmaker was viewed unfavorably by 56% of the people in his congressional district, and only 35% said that they woud support him for another term.
Its more than his father's death which seems to be keeping Patrick Kennedy from running for re-election. Good for Bishop Tobin! Would that Sen Kennedy was a good a father to his son as you were.

Patrick Kennedy was used to the good old days which his father the late Sen Edward Kennedy helped to create, when Catholic politicians could vote pro-abortion keeping their Democrt constituents happy without ruffling Catholic feathers. Since the Cardinal O'Connor-Mario Cuomo wars in the 80's, things have been awfully cozy for the majority of Catholic pols who wanted it both ways. That time is over.
Now a bishop with a spine of tempered steel and Catholics who use the New Media with passion, the news of Bishop Tobin's war of words with Patrick Kennedy spread far and wide, and may have been responsible for his demise.
News to those pro-abortion Catholic politicians whose bishops haven't enforced Canon 915; we're coming after you. Your seats will go to good pro-life Jews or Protestants if we can't replace you with a true Catholic. Let's hope the rest of the bishops see this and speak out. It's about time.

March for Life 2010 Slideshow

The Free Republic board is full interesting commentary on my article Against the Tide about the media blackout of the March for Life. One man said that we should march in New York up to MSNBC's door. I wonder if they would cover us even then. They'd still have their cameras trained on six women supporting abortion in DC. But, as I note in my article, young people know how to use the New Media.
Here's a wonderful example.

"Brain dead" patients aware and responding say brain scans

If only Terri Schiavo were allowed to live to this day, she would be vindicated.
Brain scans done on "Brain dead" patients are proving that they understand and respond to questions. We just weren't astute enough to hear them until now.
But wait, far from using this advance to help alleviate suffering by asking these patients what they've been trying to tell us, Kevorkian types want to ask them if they want to die.
But folks are already noting that the new technique may put more pressure on people suffering from PVS to just go ahead and die.

So what can—and by rights should—be a vindication for pro-lifers may get twisted into a new way to promote euthanasia
What could be a great advance in compassion, will be just another inroad for the Culture of Death unless valiant Catholics in health care stand up for life.

Obama Administration's Harry Knox is an anti-Catholic bigot

Tonight on Hannity, American Papist blogger Thomas Peters discussed the scandal of Harry Knox, anti-Catholic who is on, of all things, the committee of Faith Based Initiatives. Typical radical Obama appointee.
In a recent press conference, a reporter asked him to retract his statement that "the Pope is hurting people in the name of Jesus" and he reiterated his bigotry. Even in the light of the evidence that condoms do NOT prevent the spread of HIV, he cannot overcome his bigotry, his vitriolic hatred of the Church.
Harry Knox is a homosexual activist and anti Cathholic bigot with a long track record of anti-Catholic activism. Knox once said of the Kof C " they are foot soldiers in the discredited army of oppression".

Tucker Carlson was right, he should be thrown out, and if Obama weren't so thick-headed, he would. Pat Buchanan said on Hannity's radio show today, that rather than calling for Knox's outsting, that the people should see what voting for Obama got them. Then make him a one term president.
Even Chris Matthews used that term tonight. Guess the thrill is gone, huh, Chris? Maybe he has enough Catholic soul buried deep down in him to feel the barb of the Knox bigotry.
Let's hope Catholic voters are listening.
The St Michael Society has a petition to kick Knox the bigot out of the Office of Faith Based Initiatives, where he is certainly up to no good.
Sign the petition to have Harry Knox removed from office for his anti-Catholic bigotry.

Against the Tide; NARAL protesters at the March for Life

   Hundreds of thousands of college age demonstrators flooded the Mall on that balmy winter Friday. Thirty seven years ago, decades before most of them were born, the Blackmun Supreme Court handed down an earth shattering decision; Roe v Wade.

Abortion was now legal throughout nine months of pregnancy across the nation. They were there to protest a decision which could have cost them their lives. They were survivors of Roe v Wade. Over 50 million of their peers did lose their lives to that decision, literally a third of the generation which now surged past the Capitol Building, to stand in protest before the Supreme Court.

A living tsunami, they held signs like “All Politics are Local; they begin in the Womb”. They listened in silence to Dr Alveda King, niece of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. express regret over her two abortions, and assure them that her uncle was indeed pro-life.

Somewhere, deep in the crowd, there were dissenters. A tiny band of counter protesters, about a dozen in number, circled tightly in front of the cameras with their blue “Keep Abortion Legal” signs. They were members of another generation, the legacy of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, women who had burned their bras with Gloria Steinem,and they were there to celebrate “choice”. One of their members doggedly walked against the swell of humanity climbing Capitol Hill, looking like a salmon swimming against the spring freshet to spawn. Except that her message was one of sterility, inundated by the tide of fecundity. Did she catch the irony?

This year’s March for Life, following on the heels of the Massachusetts Miracle, was the largest ever. It occurred in the year when polls reflect a sea change of opinion against abortion, yet the mainstream media either blacked out or downplayed the event. No news cameras besides Fox and EWTN were visible, and no photographers took aerial shots of the Mall full of marchers, the way they had during the Inauguration the year before, when ‘even the seagulls’ were exuberant at the crowds. Comments were muted and photographs of individuals, not crowds. Both the NARAL huddle and the sea of humanity were given equal play in USA Today, Newsweek, and Rick Sanchez, CNN anchor openly wondered which group was larger. Jill Stanek took on Newsweek blogger Krista Gesaman on her characterization of March for Life participants as geriatric. Only the Washington Post columnist Robert McCartney, admittedly pro-abortion, stated that the crowds were young, much to his chagrin, in "Young activists add fuel to the anti-abortion side". At least he took the time to attend the March before reporting on it.
Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek took Krista Gesamen to task in her piece in Big Journalism  for characterizing those in the March for Life as too old to walk the former (shorter) route up Constitution Avenue.

The left must suppress the truth that the pro-life movement is on the March and that they have thousands of reinforcements in order to preserve their chances for big gains under the most pro-abortion president in US history. They just missed a chance for health care reform to enshrine Planned Parenthood within the federal government, and their futures look pretty grim now that the next generation has arrived.

Healthcare Bill considered slam dunk till Brown victory

According to Life News article here.the Congressional Budget Office was puting the finishing touches on the healthcare bill, which was considered a fait accompli until they were shocked by the Brown victory in MA. They are still trying to pass the bill by reconciliation, but Obama in the State of the Union seemed to wash his hands of the whole process.
Emily's List (proabortion PAC) is still reeling from the upset. Coakley was leading by 22 points in December, and when she began to fall behind, the group was the first to try and save the liberal's campaign.
But it was too late.
RIP healthcare (abortion, euthanasia) plan.
