I’m Thankful for the Gift of my Life

This Thanksgiving I'm Giving Thanks for Life

While it may not seem immediately evident, Thanksgiving is a profoundly pro-life holiday.

We focus on the tragedy of abortion, the loss of life and the suffering of the unborn and their mothers. Working to end abortion and to restore hope to a culture which wants to dispose of its most vulnerable members can be a daunting challenge. But the foundation for why we do what we do explains why we are continually “of good cheer.” Full Article

So it is entirely appropriate to celebrate and give thanks for life this Thanksgiving. For our own life, for our family and friends, and for all the mothers who did not choose abortion. We offer thanks for the knowledge that more than at any point in the last twenty years, more unborn children will have the opportunity to celebrate their own Thanksgiving.

So take a moment to give thanks for life this Thanksgiving, focus on the good. Therein rests our hope for the future.

Prayers for Charlie Gard a 10-month old and his parents.

Charlie Gard a 10-month old boy in England

Charlie Gard — a 10-month old boy in England who is seriously ill with a rare disease … a poor prognosis … and a bureaucracy that is turning a deaf ear to his plight.

Charlie’s case has generated an outpouring of support from pro-life leaders — and many people of good will from around the world.

This is quite simply an assault on human dignity, with one group of people telling another person that he does not have a right to live. Full Article

There have even been some decision-makers who’ve said it’s “in Charlie’s best interests” that he be taken off life support … which will lead to his death

Charlie’s parents want life for their son despite the desperate circumstances, but doctors, hospitals and even the government are placing barriers in their path at every step.

Buffet, Soros and Wealthy Elite Fund Abortion

George Soros and World Wealthy Elite Fund Abortion

Warren Buffett’s foundation is by far the largest contributor–over $70 million in one year alone! Planned Parenthood’s political action committee, committed to electing pro-abortion candidates, got a cool $7,250,000 from Buffett’s foundation. Full article at nationalrighttolifenews.org

George Soros and his Open Society Institute (OPI) have also been major players. On the Open society Institute’s 2013 Form 990 PF, the most recent available, OPI gave Planned Parenthood PPFA $1,650,000 “to address health disparities in the south and southeast regions of the United States.

The David and Lucille Packard Foundation, gave the Guttmacher Institute, an independent agency $2,820,000 for “Population and Reproductive Health”.

In the early days, the wealthy elite funded Planned Parenthood’s efforts to halt the “breeding” of the lower classes. Tax forms recently made available by foundations of some of the nation’s wealthiest families show that, rather than waning, that interest has grown, now helping to fund not only Planned Parenthood, but also a worldwide abortion empire.

In the end, no amount of noble sounding rhetoric about how money will be used to rid the world of poverty, disease, hunger will be able to mask to whom the money is going and the purposes for which it will be used. The best spin money can buy cannot mask the reality of what abortion is and what it does to not just a mother and her unborn child, but how it destroys an economy and a nation.

In the meantime, the hundreds of millions this enormously wealthy handful of individuals and foundations gives to abortion promoting and performing groups will, for now, keep them operating, help them to get out their messages, and put many of their political candidates in office.

 

Is VP Pick, Tim Kaine, REALLY a Catholic?

Bishop Thomas J. Tobin, Catholic Diocese of Providence, R.I.

Apparently, and unfortunately, his (Catholic) faith isn’t central to his public, political life.

Democratic VP choice, Tim Kaine, has been widely identified as a Roman Catholic. It is also reported that he publicly supports ‘freedom of choice’ for abortion, same-sex marriage, gay adoptions, and the ordination of women as priests. “All of these positions are clearly contrary to well-established Catholic teachings; all of them have been opposed by Pope Francis as well” according to Bishop Thomas J. Tobin, Catholic Diocese of Providence, R.I. www.cnsnews.com/blog

Kaine has emphasized his support for Roe v. Wade and is a co-sponsor of a bill that would dismantle pro-life laws across the country.  He has a perfect pro-abortion voting record in the Senate. www.lifesitenews.com

A Dominican priest is taking on presumptive Democrat vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine and his claims of being a faithful Catholic. In a tweet addressed to Sen. Kaine of Virginia published Sunday, Fr. Thomas Petri, OP, wrote: “Do us both a favor. Don’t show up in my communion line. I take Canon 915 seriously. It’d be embarrassing for you & for me.”  www.churchmilitant.com

 

 

She was Pro Life and Nominated for President.

Ellen McCormack: Pro-Life's Presidential Candidate of 1976

40 Years Ago this week, Democrat Ellen McCormack, pro-life columnist, wife and mother, made Pro Life history by being nominated for president at the Democratic National Convention back when the Democratic Party was Pro-Life.

Ellen McCormack: Pro-Life’s Presidential Candidate of 1976

Ellen McCormack ran for president at the behest of a small pro-life group—The Pro-Life Action Committee—that operated out the Cure of Ars Parish in Merrick, New York. The goal was to use the campaign as a platform to educate the public on pro-life issues by taking advantage of election rules which required the media to give all candidates equal time. Relying on thousands of grassroots pro-lifers across the country, she managed to raise $5000 in small contributions in 20 states, becoming the first woman in American history to qualify for matching funds. Her campaign was not without some controversy. Her single-issue candidacy annoyed political elites so much that they voted a change in funding rules in the middle of the election. As of May 1976, any candidate who did not gain more than 10% in two successive primaries would no longer be eligible for public money. Nevertheless, she had managed to raised $280 00 in small donations, received $240 000 from matching funds for a grand total of half a million dollars, of which $330 000 paid for television advertising. bigbluewave.ca

This past Sunday, (March 2011) longtime pro-life activist Ellen McCormack passed away. Since the pro-life movement often devotes little attention to its own history, her name may be unfamiliar to many young pro-lifers. nationalreview.com

“Hush” Tells the Truth How Abortion Hurts Women

video-hush3

HUSH is a documentary film that uncovers an array of important women’s health information that has been either hidden by fears of political correctness, or completely covered up by political agenda.

video-hush4Did you know that having a child, and especially having a child under 20 years old is significantly more protective against breast cancer for women compared to having a child over 30, or not having a child at all? No doctor or scientist anywhere will argue this with you. It’s true, it’s established. But most of them won’t communicate this information with you. Why? Because they don’t want to ‘tell women what to do’. They’re scared of stepping on the toes of feminist progress. Makes sense. But shouldn’t women at least know this information so they can make informed choices for their life? Shouldn’t we all know this? View the Hush Trailer

Hush, which seems to me an objective overview of the situation, should be seen by pro-choice women, pro-life women and women who are simply concerned about themselves or their daughters achieving their reproductive goals with optimal chances for long-term health. That is to say, by pretty well all women.

Canadian filmmaker Punam Kumar Gill, who identifies as pro-choice, said she wanted to find out the truth about abortion risks and whether they are real, as pro-lifers say, or overblown, as abortion activists claim. LifeNews.com
