Prayer for the unborn Monday, Jan 19 2009 

HT Maryan

God and Father of Life,
You have created every human person,
And have opened the way for each to have eternal life.

We live in the shadow of death.
Tens of millions of your children have been killed
Thanks to the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

Father, have mercy on us.
Heal our land
And accept our offering of prayer and penance.
In your love for us,
Turn back the scourge of abortion.

May each of us exult in hearts full of hope
And hands full of mercy
And work together to build a culture of life.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen

This is a true story of a woman who was kept from getting her baby medical treatment after the child was born alive after an abortion.  The trailer is RIVETING and I truly feel it will horrify and re-energize everyone to fight abortion.  IT SEEMS TO BE SUITABLE ONLY FOR OLDER TEENS OR ADULTS.

Dangerous consequences of the Freedom of Choice Act Sunday, Jan 11 2009 

FOCA in focus by American Life League 

FOCA novena begins today, Jan. 11th Sunday, Jan 11 2009 

"Not to oppose error is to approve of it.
Not to defend truth is to suppress it,
And indeed to neglect to confound evil men,
When we can do it,
is no less a sin than to encourage them."
Pope Felix III

If you are opposed to abortion then there is bad news on the horizon.
For those of you who do not know, the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is
set to be signed if congress passes it on January 21-22 of 2009. The
FOCA is the next sick chapter in the book of abortion. If made a law
then all limitations on abortion will be lifted which will result in
the following:

1) All hospitals, including Catholic hospitals will be
required to perform abortions upon request. If this happens Bishops
vow to close down all Catholic hospitals, more then 30% of all
hospitals in the United States.

2) Partial birth abortions would be legal and have no
limitations.

3) All U.S. tax payers would be funding abortions.

4) Parental notification will no longer be required.

5) The number of abortions will increase by a minimum of
100,000 annually.

Perhaps most importantly the government will now have
control in the issue of abortion. This could result in a future
amendment that would force women by law to have abortions in certain
situations (rape, down syndrome babies, etc) and could even regulate
how many children women are allowed to have.

Needless to say this information is disturbing, but sadly
true. As Catholics, as Christians, as anyone who is against the
needless killing of innocent children, we must stand as one. We must
stop this horrific act before it becomes a law.

The Plan :

To say a novena ( 9 days of prayer ) along with fasting
starting on January 11th. For Catholics, the prayer of choice will be
the rosary with intentions to stop the FOCA. For non Catholics I
encourage you to pray your strongest prayers with the same intentions,
also for nine consecutive days. The hope is that this will branch and
blossom as to become a global effort with maximum impact. We have very
little time so we all must act fast. Just do three things:

1) Pass this letter to 5 or more people

2) Do it in three days or less

3) Start the novena on January 11th and pray for nine
consecutive days.

(Please also fast for at least two days during the novena)

Remember that with God all things are possible and the
power of prayer is undeniable. If you are against the senseless
killing of defenseless children then the time is now to do something
about it!

May God bless you all!!

"If you pray well, you will live well, if you live well,
you will die well; and if you die well, all will be well." -St. Augustine

"We cannot fight credibly against other social and moral evils,
including poverty and violence, while we tolerate mass killings by
abortion."
– Mother Teresa of Calcutta

The Pill: “a demographic catastrophe.” Saturday, Jan 10 2009 

Co-Inventor Of Birth Control Pill Now Calls It 'A Catastrophe'

The glory and tragedy of this election Friday, Nov 7 2008 

HT Michele

Is it a great thing, a cathartic thing, a potentially healing thing for the country and for all of our people that we just elected our first African-American President? It is. People in downtown DC last night were singing the Star Spangled Banner spontaneously, in an overflow of affection for this nation and its many blessings, and for the promise fulfilled. I heard a black Iraq war vet interviewed saying, “Today, I really believe all men are created equal.” That’s beautiful, and I can’t find it in my heart to gainsay my neighbors’ excitement and happiness.

It’s bittersweet in the extreme, however, that the man who embodies the triumph of our founding principle “all men are created equal” with respect to black persons should be so unwilling to extend to the unborn the same right to be included in the family of men. It shows he doesn’t know the meaning of his own triumph, and it’s a blot on his achievement much as the institution of slavery was a blot on the American founding.

For one class of persons, last night was a resounding triumph. For another, it must be acknowledged, it was a dismal defeat. Voters in Michigan amended their Constitution to permit creating embryos for the sake of experimenting on them. An effort to ban abortion in all but the hardest cases fell in South Dakota. There will be no pro-life woman in the new Senate. And the first black President will, if he keeps his promises, be also the most hostile to the inalienable rights of the unborn of anyone ever elected to the highest office in our land. He who epitomizes the rights of the descendants of slaves will work to further disenfranchise this nation’s unborn. He of all people should know better. He breaks my heart. Rebecca Teti

There is hope Thursday, Nov 6 2008 

“When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I’ve often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God — and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world — and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, ‘Spare him, because he loved us!’”

– the late pro-life hero, Congressman Henry Hyde
