California became the fifth state in the U.S. to legalize physician-assisted suicide, along with Oregon, Vermont, Washington State, and Montana. Let’s see: “no fault” divorce, abortion, homosexual “marriage,” trafficking in human baby “parts,” experimenting on human embryos, legalized drugs, prostitution, etc. Just another day in the “land of the free, and the home of the brave,” right?
And this is supposed to be the answer that solves things? I have reached the point where, every day I look at the Drudge Report or turn on the news, I dread seeing who is going to be targeted for death next. Or what kind of immorality is going to be defended as a “human right.” – The Article

Mather convicted Ann of being an “idolatrous Roman Catholick” and a witch, and she hung on Boston Common on November 16, 1688. The infamous Reverend Cotton Mather, a Harvard graduate and one of the main perpetrators of witch trial hysteria at the time, insisted Ann Glover was a witch and brought her to what would be the last witch trial in Boston in 1688.
In the 1650s, Ann Glover and her family, along with some 50,000 other native Irish people, were enslaved by Englishman Oliver Cromwell during the occupation of Ireland and shipped to the island of Barbados, where they were sold as indentured servants. – By Mary Rezac Boston, Mass., Oct 31, 2014
China’s state news agency has reported that the communist country will move to a two-child policy for all couples, “abandoning its decades-long one-child policy.” A leading critic of the human rights abuses associated with the one-child policy warned, however, that characterizing this latest modification as “abandoning” the one-child policy is misleading. “A two-child policy will not end any of the human rights abuses caused by the One Child Policy, including forced abortion, involuntary sterilization or the sex-selective abortion of baby girls,” said Reggie Littlejohn of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers. The reason given for the change is entirely demographic: “to balance population development and address the challenge of an ageing population.” – www.prolife.ie
“The regime is backing away from draconian birth limits,” says Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute, “not because senior Party officials have suddenly developed a conscience. Rather, it will be because they have finally realized that a shrinking workforce and a rapidly aging population are crippling future economic growth.” – www.churchmilitant.com
Shocking Release: New PP Video – to “get the specimens intact” – Planned Parenthood Abortionist Calls Aborted Babies’ Organs “Cute”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, October 27, 2015 (Cincinnati, OH): Today the Center for Medical Progress has released another in its Human Capital Project series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood abortionists and officials describing harvesting of organs and tissues from aborted babies for profit.
Anna Dermish, abortionist for Planned Parenthood in Austin, TX, describes a partial-birth abortion procedure to kill living, late-term babies which she hopes will yield intact heads for brain harvesting. “I always try to keep the trunk intact,” assures Dermish.
“This young woman’s breezy description of slicing helpless unborn babies into pieces is mind-numbing,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “What other medical facility would be permitted to remain in operation with evidence of such brutality?” Video Disturbing Information
The Gift of Life, hosted by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, explores the sanctity of life as a moral issue and looks at the lives of individuals who were nearly the victims of an abortion, but through God’s grace were spared. Some went on to great accomplishments. Some may be your neighbors and friends. These stories are all around us. They help us define the culture of life. – Movie Trailer
The Gift of Life also profiles leaders in the Pro-Life movement; those who believe that all other issues pale in comparison to whether we respect and honor others in the same way we want to be treated. Historically, America has been a shining example of a culture that respects life. But with the Roe v. Wade decision, we, as a society, exchanged our sense of responsibility toward human life for a greater heralding of the right to terminate it. – www.thegiftoflifemovie.com
This will be the first time that a married couple is canonized together. In the Catholic Church we are blessed to have this “power” couple to look to as our example of how a Godly marriage should be. Couples become Saints
Louis and Zélie Martin, the French married couple and parents of the “greatest saint of modern times,” were canonized in St. Peter’s Square. The saintly couple’s relics were carried in procession by the two little children whose lives were miraculously saved through their intercession.
In his homily at the Mass on canonization on Sunday morning, Pope Francis said: “The holy spouses Louis Martin and Marie-Azélie Guérin practiced Christian service in the family, creating day by day an environment of faith and love which nurtured the vocations of their daughters, among whom was Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus.” Aletia.org

Gianna Jessen grew up believing that she was born with cerebral palsy because she had been delivered prematurely in a particularly traumatic birth. That was the story told to her by her adoptive mother and it was not until she was 12 years old that she discovered the truth about what made her different from the other children at school. “I had an innate wondering,” Miss Jessen says. “I wasn’t satisfied for some reason, so I kept asking why I had this disability.
“She tried to break it to me gently and then, just as she was about to tell me, I said ‘I was aborted, right?’ She said ‘Yeah, you were.’ And my reaction was ‘Well, at least I have cerebral palsy for an interesting reason.’ ” ….. More about Gianna Jessen

“We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins.” Thus spake Justice Blackmun, writing for the majority in the U.S, Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade decision in January, 1973. And so the era of virtually unlimited abortion in the United States burst upon the nation in a flurry of obfuscation and falsehood. There never was, in fact, any question of when “life begins”, certainly not on scientific grounds.
For more than four decades now, the abortion industry and its apologists have relied on verbal smokescreens like Justice Blackmun’s to provide just enough cover that Americans can avoid the ugly truth about abortion. (However) It’s getting harder all the time to keep the charade going.
Howard Slugh, an attorney, addresses the ultrasound issue in an article [here] in National Review Online called “The Life-Affirming Power of Ultrasound”. He discusses in particular the growing number of state laws in the U.S. that require the abortionist to perform an ultrasound and to show the images to the mother of the unborn baby. “the more a mother knows about her child, the less likely she is to abort him.”
It’s good to bear this in mind as we work to protect life: truth is our ally. ….. More by James Milliken
