Contraception and the Next Ordinary Synod

Rick Fitzgibbons with a clear call to the Bishops to listen to St. John Paul II and Blessed Paul VI.

A clear and scientifically irrefutable relationship exists between the use of contraceptives and the plague of divorce, with its life-long damage to millions upon millions of young people, loyal spouses, and their families worldwide. Many days in my work, I feel like an army medic on a battlefield strewn with people of various ages and conditions, severely wounded by something essentially ignored.
The failure to address the psychological and sociological science related to this damage needs to be corrected – and the subject directly confronted – in next October’s Ordinary Synod on the Family.

Loretta Lynch is Pro-Zombie

What is partial-birth abortion?

Partial-birth abortion (PBA) is the term Congress has used to describe a procedure that crosses the line from abortion to infanticide.  The doctor delivers a substantial portion of the living child outside his mother's body --- the entire head in a head-first delivery or the trunk past the navel in a feet-first delivery --- then kills the child by crushing his skull or removing his brain by suction. [USCCB website].
"Crushing his skull and removing his brain". Hmm. Sounds a lot like how Zombies kill; sucking out the brains.
Guess Loretta Lynch likes her some Zombies. Must be a fan of The Walking Dead.
During her legal career Lynch "signed on to an amicus brief in the Partial Birth Abortion case before the Supreme Court where she served as an amici in favor of Planned Parenthood."

Public Shaming, it’s a Gay Thing

Or so one would be lead to believe given Patricia Todd, a gay Alabama lawmaker’s intimidation tactic, which is a threat to expose (blackmail, extort) her fellow lawmakers who are in adulterous affairs.

Sounds so similar to the public shaming used by the LGBT community to silence the adult children of same-sex marriages who speak out against same-sex marriage.
Katy Faust also testified that children of homosexuals are intimidated into silence by gay activists who threaten them with public shaming, job interference, and worse for daring to speak out against same-sex “marriage.”

Mary Wagner

Do you know her? Learn about her story.
She’s a pro-life hero who is presently languishing in a maximum security prison in Canada for violating a “bubble zone” law in Canada but instead of being bitter, she’s spending her time ministering to female prisoners who have been wounded by abortion.

March for Life 2015 - Media Roundup UPDATED

Keep posting your photos using #‎MarchForLife‬ ‪#‎WhyWeMarch‬

UPDATE 1/23/15 10:23 am:
National Catholic Register Why We March

Aleteia has the March for Life in images. Good for them!

Over at Flickr, Elvert Barnes doing the good work of documenting the March for Life.

March for Life via Storify has Why We March

UPDATE 1/23/15:
Don't forget, now it's the West Coast's turn. Walk for Life, January 24th.

Regarding the Media Blackout. 
We need someone to take up where the late, faithful Barbara Curtis left off. Every year she would stake out a location on Constitution Ave and photograph the March, so there would be a permanent record of the crowd. Perhaps something the Jeanne Monahan and MFL needs to consider. We need both a photo gallery and social media (for trending purposes). Perhaps Carl Anderson and the Knights should fund a photographer along with aerial photos of the event.

American Thinker has a piece about the March and the Media Blackout.

UPDATE: 
Has to be the biggest media blackout of the MFL that we can remember.
Very hard to find photo galleries at the usually secular news websites.
Mainstream media is pretending 500,000 people weren't in DC today.
If you attended the March for Life be sure to post your photos to Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Use hashtags #whywemarch #marchforlife2015

Interesting to note that the Rupert Murdoch press Foxnews, NY Post, WSJ have scant information, especially after they pulled Catholic newsman Brett Baier from an upcoming Legatus Conference.

What Our Society Has Lost with 42 Years of Legalized Abortion


From Fr. George Rutler's "The Pastor's Corner " at Church of St. Michael (NYC):

Ever since the legalization of abortion in our country, the Church has resisted the temptation to discouragement in defending innocent life. January 22 will mark the 41st annual March for Life in Washington. The March has gone on in weather fair and foul, whether government administrations have been friend or foe. In those years, more than 56 million babies in our country alone have been destroyed in their mothers’ wombs. We lament the loss of at least 110 million soldiers and civilians worldwide in the two World Wars, and can barely imagine with what talent and invention so many of them might have endowed the arts and science. The same dirge can be intoned for all those babies.
Last year at this time, I cited a statistical abstract using the ratio of professions to population and the number of infants aborted. The resulting estimate showed that in the last 35 years, those lives destroyed could have included: 
2 U.S. presidents; 7  Supreme Court justices; 102 U.S. senators and 589 congressmen; 8,123 judges; 31 Nobel Prize laureates; 328 Olympic medalists; 6,092 professional athletes; 134,841 physicians and surgeons; 392,500 registered nurses; 70,669 clergy, including 6,852 Catholic priests and 11,010 nuns; 1,102,443 elementary and high-school teachers; 553,821 truck drivers; 224,518 maids and housekeepers; 33,939 janitors; 134,028 farmers and ranchers; 109,984 police officers; and 39,477 firefighters.
None of those infants lived to be baptized, and they are entrusted to the mercy of God. Our nation now has the lowest birthrate in its history, and may be approaching the demographic winter that is destroying many other countries. The good news is that contending for life year in and year out has raised consciences, and the rate of abortions is at an all-time low. So when facing Satan and all his works and all his empty promises, say with good courage: I have been baptized.

Be Not Afraid

March for Life reports that anywhere from 60 percent to 90 percent of pregnancies with a “poor prenatal diagnosis” end in abortion.

Where is your Brother?

A young girl's realization that her fellow teammates ...children who should have been her teammates...are dead from abortion. 

“Mom, I was counting in my head, and I know 13 kids around my age with spina bifida.”
“Yeah?” I asked. “And?”
“That means that at least 26 are dead. Twenty-six is enough for at least two more basketball teams.” She sighed and turned to look out the car window.
