An answer to those who say abortion is needed for victims of rape, etc....
Julie doesn't think so... nor does her birthmother.
WHAT?? Listen to the very end of this video...
The officer's words....
LORD HAVE MERCY!
I am always amazed that any Catholic can choose to be pro-abortion. I am saddened when those same Catholics at one time were pro-life. In many ways, it seems to me, that those of us of Irish descent should realize the importance of LIFE, especially that of our tiniest, most defenseless, our babies still inside their mothers' wombs! For it was not really all that long ago that we were fighting for survival, driven out of our homeland by famine and oppression....
I am even more saddened when I remember that many priests are responsible for this change in our Church... and that so few even blink about this...
From Patrick Madrid:
This article reveals that it was was an intentional, systematic, concerted effort on the part of a group of dissenting Catholic theologians (including Fr. Richard McCormick, Fr. Charles Curran, Fr. Joseph Fuchs, Fr. Robert Drinan, and Fr. John Courtney Murray), who spent a good deal of of time with the Kennedys in the mid 1960s employing bogus moral theology arguments to convince them they could "accept and promote abortion with a clear conscience." Once this was accomplished, these same Judas priests undertook to literally coach the Kennedy's on what to say and how to vote in favor of abortion in their public lives.
Given the Kennedys' enormous influence over American politics, it's diabolically logical for those dissenting Catholic theologians to have targeted this renowned and respected Catholic family for "conversion." They were in the perfect position to persuade other Catholics, and even many Protestants, that it's okay to be pro-abortion. And this strategy worked so well that, today, it is virtually impossible to find a Catholic politician holding national public office who is pro-life. Thanks to these dissenters and those Catholics they duped, "Catholic" is synonymous with "pro-abortion" in politics.

TED KENNEDY ON ABORTION:34 YEARS AGO TODAY
August 3, 2005
Long-time Catholic League member Tom Dennelly wrote to Senator Edward Kennedy in 1971 expressing his views on abortion (this was a year-and-a-half before Roe v. Wade). In a letter dated August 3, 1971, Senator Kennedy replied; excerpts appear below. :
"While the deep concern of a woman bearing an unwanted child merits consideration and sympathy, it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is not in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life. Wanted or unwanted, I believe that human life, even at its earliest stages, has certain rights which must be recognized—the right to be born, the right to love, the right to grow old.
"On the question of the individual's freedom of choice there are easily available birth control methods and information which women may employ to prevent or postpone pregnancy. But once life has begun, no matter at what stage of growth, it is my belief that termination should not be decided merely by desire.
"When history looks back to this era it should recognize this generation as one which cared about human beings enough to halt the practice of war, to provide a decent living for every family, and to fulfill its responsibility to its children from the very moment of conception."
Catholic League president William Donohue opined as follows:
"The same Ted Kennedy who once championed the rights of the unborn now champions the right of a doctor to jam a scissor into the skull of an infant who is 80-percent born. Sadly for him, history will look back at this era and recognize that he didn't care enough about human beings to take responsibility for children from the very moment of conception."

Posted: 8/20/09It's a new year at Saint Louis University, and along with changes occurring on campus, there has also been a change in the St. Louis Archdiocese. On June 10, after serving four years as bishop of the Diocese of Saginaw, Mich., Archbishop Robert J. Carlson was installed as the head of the St. Louis Catholic Church. As archbishop, Carlson will be responsible for over 550,000 Catholics and he will have a unique chance to interact with one of the nation's oldest and largest Jesuit institutions, SLU.
Carlson has a message for SLU students: It's time to build bridges. Carlson also said that the University should be a stimulating environment, and that students shouldn't cut each other down over differences.
"Ask the questions and extend the bridge," Carlson said. "The young people who go to SLU are blessed with people who can extend those bridges. That's why I think the university setting can be so stimulating."
Although Carlson is a relatively new face in the St. Louis Catholic community, he has already established SLU connections.
"I've already met President Biondi, and I think that I should and will partake in some of the activities that the University offers and be supportive of the presence of a significant university in the Archdiocese," Carlson said.
Carlson plans to preside over the Mass of the Holy Spirit, Thursday, Aug. 27, at St. Francis-Xavier College Church.

Amazing story, and I really do hope that he is successful at his writing a powerful story of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
I had no idea that this was even in the works!

Who is the primary author of this workbook? Dr. Robert Pearlman, chief of ethics evaluation for the center, a man who in 1996 advocated for physician-assisted suicide in Vacco v. Quill before the U.S. Supreme Court and is known for his support of health-care rationing.
"Your Life, Your Choices" presents end-of-life choices in a way aimed at steering users toward predetermined conclusions, much like a political "push poll." For example, a worksheet on page 21 lists various scenarios and asks users to then decide whether their own life would be "not worth living."
American Papist: Not Your Average Catholic!: Judge says SD doctors must say abortion ends life
I am also late, but American Papist has also put down my own thoughts on this.
U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier's decision Thursday ends a lawsuit that Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota filed in response to a 2005 informed consent law that required several disclosures to women seeking an abortion.
She sided with the state in ruling that doctors must make the biological disclosure "that the abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being."
But Schreier said doctors can provide more information than the language in the statute, including that the term can be used in a biological sense and not ideological.
I am glad that the decision was made that the doctors need to tell women that this is a termination of a human life... not sure what it means that "the term can be used in a biological sense and not ideological." To me, that sounds like SOME could water down the facts.
Thank God that some of those in SD are able to see Truth.
Lord, have Mercy!

I've always said "if wombs had windows there'd be no abortion"
No one is going to grind up and suck out, what they now have a "personal" relationship with.
Well ladies and gentlemen.....
Now we do ....
