Know Your Pro-Life History

To be deep in history is to cease to be Pro-Choice [with apologies to John Henry Cardinal Newman].

Know your Pro-Life History so we don't repeat the past!

J. P. McFadden was one of the leaders in chronicling the Life Movement since the Roe v. Wade decision. He founded the Human Life Review which marks it's 40 anniversary this year. Excellent interview with his daughter Maria McFadden at the Catholic World Report.

Some excerpts:
When the Roe v. Wade decision was handed down, it shocked him to the core. He simply couldn’t believe it. He called it his “day-long road to Damascus,” the day he read the decision. He couldn’t believe the Supreme Court would put “moral suasion and moral power behind killing babies.” .....
My father was determined that the Review would be the place where all the best minds would gather to argue in defense of life, and also that the Review would be a record of the pro-life movement. We will not, he said, be like Nazi Germany—no one should be able to say they didn’t know what was going on.

Gardasil Vaccine Injury

11 months later and Madelyne Meylor, 20 and her sister, Olivia Meylor, 19, are still waiting to hear from the Vaccine Injury Court in Washington, D.C after filing their claim regarding a vaccine injury from Gardasil.

The Wisconsin siblings have filed a federal claim..
"saying they believe Gardasil vaccine caused their condition. The Meylors say they have had premature menopause, marked by insomnia, night sweats and headaches, and most likely won't be able to get pregnant."

Same Agenda, Different Names

These groups share the same agenda under the guise of helping children via vaccination.

Every Child By Two
A Shot At Life

Why aren't these initiatives more concerned about healthy lifestyles or infrastructure: diet,  clean water, highways, medical training, etc.
Why do many of these vaccines contain aborted fetal cell material?

Pillen-Papst

“Pillen-Papst” the pill-Pope. Some good insight into the rejection of Pope Paul VI and Humanae Vitae and subsequent embrace of the Culture of Death and undermining of marriage and family in Germany in this interview. 
The German-speaking world was in dire need of re-evangelization after World War II. Instead of a widespread spiritual renewal, however, people turned towards material wealth, trying to make up for the poverty during the war by escaping into a bourgeois world of comfort. 
In light of this, the reaction of the following generation, which had not experienced the deprivations of the war to that extent, makes sense. The young were searching for an absolute, which the bourgeois values of their parents could not yield. Since religion appeared like an empty shell to them, the “68-ideology” seemed like the answer to their quest. The combination of anarchical idealism and sexual hedonism appealed to their spiritual needs, was attractive to their rebellious spirit and offered physical gratification

North Dakota leading the way

North Dakota challenging Roe v. Wade.
...Along with the spate of anti-abortion legislation, North Dakota lawmakers also passed a resolution that allows voters to decide on Nov. 4 whether the measure's life-begins-at-conception wording belongs in the state constitution. 
State Sen. Margaret Sitte, a Republican who is ardently anti-abortion, sponsored the resolution, saying at its introduction that it was meant to be a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion up until a fetus is considered viable. The Bismarck resident now says the resolution's intent is simply to "protect laws the Legislature has put in place."

Netherlands is Confused

Netherlands has one of the lowest marriage rates in Europe.




Netherland has one of the highest on-demand euthanasia rates, so what do you expect?
The Culture of Death and the Culture of Life are not compatible. One of them has to go. Just sayin'.

Culture of Death from Shore to Shore

Trafficking in human organs along the Mediterranean.  
"An international human trafficking ring forced migrants to sell their organs as payment for their journey from Africa to Europe, an Italian police investigation has revealed.Five people have been arrested as part of the probe into the gang, which allegedly arranges the harvesting of kidneys and other organs of migrants arriving in Europe by boat.Italy, with its southern-most province Lampedusa just 80 miles from Africa, is the gateway for many seeking new lives in Europe. Almost 150,000 have made the journey so far in 2014. Around 3000 have died attempting the journey this year."
Read it all here

Indifference is the handmaid of the Culture of Death. 

Pope Francis speaking in Lampedusa in 2013:
 "for the “indifference towards so many brothers and sisters…for those who are pleased with themselves, who are closed in on their own well-being in a way that leads to the anaesthesia of the heart, … for those who with their decisions at the global level have created situations that lead to these tragedies. Forgive us, Lord!"

Attacking the Family in Africa

Gates Foundation teaming up with the UN to depopulate Africa.
The largest single development campaign in history—the Gates Foundation-led Family Planning 2020—has eschewed all pretense of investment in hospitals, infrastructure, and education in Africa and Asia; opting instead for a fertility reduction campaign based entirely on the development and proliferation of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs). Joining the Gates Foundation in this 4.6 BILLION DOLLAR effort to “help” 120 million poor women is the British government, International Planned Parenthood Foundation, CARE International, and dozens more large NGOs.
Read the whole thing in a web exclusive at First Things.  

Meanwhile, Peter Cardinal Turkson of Ghana, the President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, says we need food, not birth control
"Let´s try to invest more in the productivity of these people, instead of killing them. Let's invest more in productivity. We must raise their level of productivity. Because you can always produce food, especially in Africa, where there's always sun and rain. Any seed can grow in Africa.”

Tell me WHO your friends are...

And I'll tell you who you are.

Posting this as a follow-up to Pawns for Voices for Vaccines.

There is a small group of young, earnest Catholics who have associated themselves with Voices for Vaccines and are directing Catholics to the pro-vaccine website without telling their Catholic readership that Voices for Vaccines* is a administrative project of the Task Force for Global Health, an Atlanta-based 501(c)(3) organization which is according to Forbes the #3 of the 50 Largest U.S. Charities.

The Task Force for Global Health was
"founded in 1984 as the Task Force for Child Survival. The Task Force was initially tapped to serve as a Secretariat for a consortium of global health organizations: UNICEFWHOThe Rockefeller FoundationThe United Nations Development Programme, and the World Bank." (Wikipedia)
Veteran Pro-Lifers know exactly who keeps company with these organizations. 

The Culture of Death via the Depopulation and Eugenics Movements have long been funded by WHO, UNCIEF, The Rockefeller Foundation, UN Development Programme, and the World Bank. 


It's a shame that the young Catholics are ignorant of the history of the Pro-Life Movement. Are they oblivious to the eugenics-depopulation agenda as it was practiced in the former Eastern Block (as documented by the Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation) and in the Developing World (as documented to this day by Human Life International and Population Research Institute)?


Are they unaware the Gates Foundation led 
"Family Planning 2020—has eschewed all pretense of investment in hospitals, infrastructure, and education in Africa and Asia; opting instead for a fertility reduction campaign based entirely on the development and proliferation of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs). Joining the Gates Foundation in this 4.6 billion dollar effort to “help” 120 million poor women is the British government, International Planned Parenthood Foundation, CARE International, and dozens more large NGOs." [read the whole thing at First Things].
They seem blithely unaware [or are they just unconcerned?] that contraceptive/eugenics-based "health policies" (the HHS Contraceptive Mandate for example) are now being perpetuated in the United States (as documented by Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute , Stop Planned Parenthood and America Life League). Just last month the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended long-term birth control for teens (early use of hormonal birth control that will cause long-term fertility issues when these young woman want to start a family).

In their zeal to promote vaccines this little group of "rational" bloggers have become collaborators with the very organizations that are promoting the Culture of Death. 


We would call it a rookie mistake but the stakes are too high to be playing with fire.

The Pill Should Never Have Happened

The money quote if ever there was one:
If today’s gotcha journalists had been around in the 1950s to probe pill research, there would have been no pill. They would have exposed the conflicts of interest, the bullying of test subjects, along with Sanger’s eugenics campaign to sterilize people labeled as genetically unfit.
From Henry Allen's review of Jonathan Eig's The Birth of the Pill in WSJWeekend.

Let's review that again, shall we.
1. Conflicts of interest.
2. Bullying test subjects.
3. Eugenics campaign to sterilize the unfit.

Sounds a lot like modern day vaccine research. Oh, and how interesting that in counties like Kenya, the Philippines, Nicaragua, and Mexico, they are being bullied into using vaccines combined with birth control.

The Selfie Generation

A message to Brittany Maynard, the 29-year old with terminal brain cancer who is seeking assisted suicide: work while there is light.

As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. - John 9:4

Keep working. Quit your foolishness.

Makes us think of the vast gulf between the Greatest Generation and the Selfie-Generation.

Take the example of Lt. Rev. Thomas M. Conway, the last Chaplain to die in WWII. Although he knew night was coming, he worked until the end.

Fr. Conway was aboard the USS Indianapolis which was torpedoed by the Japanese in the final days of the War in the Pacific. For three days he gave courage and hope to the survivors floating in the Pacific Ocean amidst the burning oil and sharks.
" ... I saw him go from one small group to another. Getting the shipmates to join in prayer and asking them not to give up hope of being rescued. He kept working until he was exhausted. I remember on the third day late in the afternoon when he approached me and Paul McGiness. He was thrashing the water and Paul and I held him so he could rest a few hours. Later, he managed to get away from us and we never saw him again. Father Conway was successful in his mission to provide spiritual strength to all of us. He made us believe that we would be rescued. He gave us hope and the will to endure. His work was exhausting and he finally succumbed in the evening of the third day. He will be remembered by all of the survivors for all of his work while on board the ‘Indy’ and especially three days in the ocean.”

IVF & ART the New Child Abuse

There's a saying,

God always forgives
Man sometimes forgives
Nature never forgives

If conception takes place outside of the natural order, for instance in a test tube or petri dish, God will honor that person with a soul. But even if that child discovers his true donor parents and his 88 other siblings, he will still have an inherent natural brokenness because the child was simply born that way

Don’t take our word for it, read the stories over at Anonymous Us Project.

You see, Nature never forgives.

IVF (in vitro fertilization) and ART (assisted reproductive technology) are the new child abuse.

The folks at Manif pour Tous have got it right.

Because the exploitation of women is intolerable; 
because the child is not an object; 
because all children need a father and a mother.”

France Rallies Against IVF for Same-Sex Couples

Good for them. The folks at Manif pour Tous (Protest for Everyone) are at it again. This year...
Over 500,000 opponents of same-sex marriage have flooded the streets of Paris and Bordeaux to protest against medically-assisted reproduction for gay couples, rally organizers said. A previous protest for “traditional family values” gathered 100,000.
 Read about it here.

Manif pour Tous declares:
Because the exploitation of women is intolerable; because the child is not an object; because all children need a father and a mother,” 
Amen.

Good for them for recognizing the inherent brokenness of children conceived by IVF and ART. Just read the testimonies at the Anonymous Us Project.

Holland vs Belgium: Where is the Euthanasia Capital of the World?

The other day we posted how Belgium is basically allowing death on demand.
Now Belgium's neighbor and rival, Holland, is killing the mentally ill with abandon.
The number of mentally-ill patients killed by euthanasia in Holland has trebled in the space of a year, new figures have revealed.In 2013, a total of 42 people with ‘severe psychiatric problems’ were killed by lethal injection compared to 14 in 2012 and 13 in 2011.The latest official figures also revealed a 15 per cent surge in the number of euthanasia deaths from 4,188 cases in 2012 to 4,829 cases last year.
Culture of Death run amok in the Low Countries.

Let the Living Live

Lawyers for the family of Jahi McMath want her to be declared "alive" by the California court system. She was declared brain dead...but her body is obviously not decaying. 
Wesley J. Smith has the story at the National Review. 

A good reminder for everyone when dealing with end of life issues. If the body is dead, the body will die...decay. If someone is taken off of life support and they don't die...they don't decay...then they aren't dead.

One would think this would be obvious to the medical establishment but nowadays it is up to the family to guard and protect their loved ones receiving medical attention.

How Many Times is the Genetic Test Wrong?

Practically all of the time from what we've read.
"At their 12-week scan at Bassetlaw Royal Hospital on March 19, 2012, they were told it was highly likely they had a Down's Syndrome baby and emergency blood tests were carried out the same day. The results revealed a heightened risk of Edward Syndrome or Patau Syndrome - both serious genetic disorders that limit life expectancy. "
Yet the baby was born healthy and is now celebrating his 2nd Birthday.

Yup

Camille Pagila with a good summary of our youth culture today.
Girls armed with "you go, girl" naiveté and boys feed on a diet of pornography.
"Misled by the naive optimism and “You go, girl!” boosterism of their upbringing, young women do not see the animal eyes glowing at them in the dark. They assume that bared flesh and sexy clothes are just a fashion statement containing no messages that might be misread and twisted by a psychotic. They do not understand the fragility of civilization and the constant nearness of savage nature."
Read the whole thing here.  

Well, this is pretty much what one expects after 41 years of legal abortion [abortion as birth control and as the birth control backup).
