University of Wisconsin Papers, Pro-Abortion

September 27, 2009

Fox has an article on the University of Wisconsin student newspapers that decided not to run pro-life ads; seems they could be controversial and don’t offer a service.

Apparently providing information about options for help for pregnant women, and educating people on the sanctity of life isn’t a service; you know, like abortion is a service. Porn is an appropriate topic for an article. So is sexting. And mocking belief in God.

I assume the controversy comes in because people would be reminded that abortion kills babies.

De Profundis

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
to my voice in supplication:

If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt,
Lord, who can stand?
But with you is forgiveness,
that you may be revered.

I trust in the Lord;
my soul trusts in his word.
My soul waits for the Lord,
more than sentinels wait for the dawn.
More than sentinels wait for the dawn,
let Israel wait for the Lord;

For with the Lord is kindness
and with him is plenteous redemption;
And he will redeem Israel from all their iniquities.  Ps. 130

Orthodox EP Soft Like Anglicans on Abortion

July 25, 2008

It’s not just about the filioque or the Immaculate Conception, folks. Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI have encouraged Catholics to reach out to Orthodox Christians, to respect them and learn their traditions. Catholics by and large have accepted that the Orthodox really are very close to Catholicism in many areas. But many would be surprised to learn that some Orthodox hierarchs (and Oriental Orthodox hierarchs) are soft, even permissive on the issue of abortion–soft like Anglicans.

His Holiness, Patriarch Karekin I of Etchmiadzin of Armenia (Oriental Orthodox) who came on a pastoral visit to the US had this to say about the Oriental Orthodox Church’s position on abortion- Read the rest of this entry »

How wrong I was.

In a post called What do you do about bumperstickers?, a blogger expresses her frustration at being confronted in traffic with this sticker:

I do feel for her predicament but not in the way she argues her point:

initially i just felt my heart racing and i got so angry, the adrenline rushing to my brain and images flashing of punching the driver while yelling at him about his ignorance and sense of entitlement…

i certainly don’t regret abortion, i am thankful i was able to make that choice. i am sick of being told i should be ashamed of it, or regret it, or how to feel about it by people in the street with grotesque pictures of aborted fetuses, media pundits and now even disembodied messages in traffic.

I feel for her situation in that she has been reminded of something that she would prefer not to be. And, she was caught off guard. That would make me uncomfortable. But she was not accosted by a gruesome image, a judgment of her by others, but rather the judgment of others upon themselves. Perhaps the owner of the car regretted her own abortion or the abortion of his girlfriend. And, if the person has regretted the abortion he or she participated in, isn’t there a moral duty to warn others?

However, our blogger’s claim that she has nothing to regret, is what I find regrettable. If there is nothing to regret about abortion, then she nor anyone should have any qualms about being reminded of it. If I dont regret having eaten a chocolate sundae, then being reminded of it should be either pleasant or neutral. Only if I regret having eaten the whole thing would a bumper sticker associating the sundae with my spare tire cause me any uneasiness.

If there is nothing regrettable about abortion, one should have no problems being reminded of it. However, if reminders of it cause anger, arouse violent thoughts, etc. then perhaps this is the first sign of the regret one is working so hard to deny. That regret is the first step toward healing, which I wish for our dear blogger. Keep her in your prayers.


Will This Photo Be Used In “Planned Parenthood For Pelosi” Fundraising Mailers And Websites?

April 17, 2008

I am not certain if this is going to hurt Speaker Pelosi’s Planned Parenthood support.  Being that her former chief of staff is now the President the Planned Parenthood Federation of America it may be no big deal.

Still, I doubt this one is going to make the “Planned Parenthood for Pelosi” website and newsletter. 

Sigh.

Government of Finland Pressures Nicaragua to Legalize Abortion

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

MANAGUA, April 9, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Finnish government, following the practice of its Scandinavian neighbors, is pressuring Nicaragua to legalize abortion during a visit that will determine if Finland will continue its $16 million annual aid package to the country.

During his recent visit to Nicaragua to “evaluate” the state of the country, the Finnish minister of Exterior Cooperation and Trade, Paavo Väyrynen, made his desire clear: legalize abortion.

“Red Alert” in the Dominican Republic over Plans to Legalize Abortion

One wonders who is funding the campaign?

“Red Alert” in the Dominican Republic over Plans to Legalize Abortion

 By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, April 5. 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Catholic Church in the Dominican Republic has declared a “red alert” regarding the possibility that abortion could be legalized after the coming presidential elections, according to Father Luis Rosario, coordinator of the youth organization Pastoral Juvenil.

An attempt to legalize abortion last year failed after pro-lifers, led by Cardinal Archbishop Nicholas Jesus Rodriguez of Santo Domingo, led a massive nationwide protest that lasted an entire month, culminating in a huge march in the capital and a speech on national radio by the Cardinal.

However, members of the left-leaning Progressive Bloc parties that dominate the Dominican National Congress have made clear statements since the protests that they wish to revive the debate following the upcoming elections on May 16th.

The Dominican Republic is one of five Latin American countries in which all abortions, except indirect procedures to save a woman’s life, are penalized under the criminal code.  The others are Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, and Chile.

Rosario considers abortion to be “the greatest violence and abuse that can be committed against a human being,” reports the Dominican publication Hoy.  He announced the “red alert” in a press conference given at the beginning of Child Abuse Protection Month in the Dominican Republic.

Islam Overtakes Catholicism as the World’s Largest Religion?

March 31, 2008

muslim_kids_praying.gif

“Islam Overtakes Catholicism as the World’s Largest Religion”has been a headline that has hit the blogosphere hard and taken off running… But there are some points to ponder when taking in this story…

Islam is not a singular cohsesive institution… There are divisions. If we are going to compare all adherents to forms of Islam to another group, wouldn’t it be all adherents to forms of Christianity? If we are going to compare the largest sub-groups… Well Holy Mother Church still is the largest single religious body the world has ever known. And we are still growing.

Something to really consider though – Muslims have more children. Read the rest of this entry »
