Doctors Refused to Help This Baby With Trisomy 18, She Almost Died But This Happened
You go to the doctor with a chronic headache and he suggests cutting off your head. The doctor assures you that this will put a permanent end to your headaches. Sounds crazy, but that is the same logic the medical community often uses with the biologically imperfect.

'Choose Life' Group Officially Rejected by St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee: Unnamed 'Right to Life' Group will March Instead

'Choose Life' Group Officially Rejected by St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee: Unnamed 'Right to Life' Group will March Instead
  
Contact: Dr. Elizabeth Rex, President, The Children First Foundation, 914-629-3710

NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Elizabeth Rex was recently informed by Mr. John Dunleavy, Chairman of The NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee, that The Children First Foundation, a pro-adoption, charitable organization that has been seeking the approval of a pro-adoption New York State "Choose Life" License Plate since 2001, has been officially rejected.

In his letter dated January 22 (and received on January 28), Mr. Dunleavy returned Dr. Rex's Parade Application Forms and $200 Parade Application Fee that had been submitted to the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee over three months ago on October 17, 2014.

The only reason Mr. Dunleavy provided was that the "[parade] committee has selected a Right to Life group which will be led by the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus Honor Guard." He also added that "Cardinal Dolan has been made aware of this."

Dr. Rex explained that her overall reaction to Mr. Dunleavy's letter was a positive one. "At least now a pro-life group will be included -instead of excluded - in the 2015 St. Patrick's Day Parade," she said.

The Parade Committee's historic decision to select a "pro-life group" finally fulfills the terms of the "compromise" that was first reported on September 3rd in the Wall Street Journal, that 'the organizers also will now let a 'pro-life' group march with a banner.'"

This is a highly significant turn of events, because the inclusion of a "pro-life group" in the 2015 Parade has been at least as controversial - if not more so - than the inclusion of a "gay group." For over 20 years both groups have been excluded until now.

At the Press Conference on September 3rd, Cardinal Dolan, the Parade's 2015 Grand Marshal, defended this Change in Policy by saying that we are all "God's children, deserving dignity and respect, never to be treated with discrimination or injustice."

Unfortunately, on September 10th, Dr. John Lahey, the Parade Committee's Vice-Chairman and President of Quinnipiac University, when asked by Irish Central about the inclusion of a "pro-life group," unexpectedly announced, "That won't be happening."

The next day, September 11th, Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, protested this exclusion of a pro-life group by withdrawing himself and the Catholic League from the 2015 Parade. In an excoriating email, Donohue carefully explained that his "reasons for withdrawing from the parade have nothing to do with Cardinal Dolan or with gays. It has to do with being betrayed by the parade committee. They not only told me one thing and did another, they decided to include a gay group that is neither Catholic nor Irish while stiffing pro-life Catholics. This is as stunning as it is indefensible."

Mr. Dunleavy has apparently prevailed in restoring the Committee's original Change in Policy. What still remains to be known, however, is crucial: which Right to Life group has been selected to march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade; what will their group's banner say; and when will the Parade Committee make this important announcement
?

Spirit & Life - Healing Humanity's Wounds Through God's Plan



As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.  (Pope Saint John Paul II, Familiaris consortio 1)
Last week in Rome I joined nearly 300 people from 28 countries representing 83 Catholic movements and institutions for a conference sponsored by the Pontifical Council for the Family. The primary focus of the three-day conference was to discuss questions aimed in response to the “Relatio Synodi” of the III Extraordinary Synod that met in October 2014. Conference participants were assigned the task of reflecting and discussing the 46 questions posed by the Synod Fathers. Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, President for the Pontifical Council for the Family, will now synthesize these responses and present them to the Synod secretary for reflection and consideration.
As the opening session began, I recalled the words of Pope Saint John Paul II, the great defender of the family, quoted above. The situations confronting society can be resolved if we merely follow God’s plan for the family based on true marriage – one man and one woman open to the gift of life in an indissoluble and exclusive union, a union instituted and willed by God. Guided by the destructive forces of relativism  and cultural individualism, society attempts to deconstruct the natural family and remake it into a new man-made entity, thus rejecting God’s gifts of marriage, family, and life.
humanbabyIncreasingly, governments and multinational organizations are united in a concerted effort to tear the family down. With great success on social, political, legal, and religious fronts, they are undermining healthy traditions and destabilizing religious and moral convictions. The result is the normalization of individualistic values that are imposed with complete intolerance toward anyone who dissents. The Church stands in the breech, confronting the deceptive tactics while witnessing the beauty and wonder of God’s divine plan for the natural family and humanity. Man and woman are not alone in this great battle. There is an answer and there is hope.
The Church is the sign of God’s love. She is a teacher always at the service of humanity. She takes up the call to continually defend the gifts of God while addressing the tensions that cause division and alienation from God. She preaches a message of hope and joy in the midst of a world often torn by strife and discord. She teaches what is true. She cannot call bad what is good or good what is bad. She knows that by upholding the moral law she is contributing to an authentic human civilization – a civilization of life and love – while calling each to remember and take into his heart the moral law. She walks with us, alongside every man and woman, aiding us to fulfill our destiny. She never abandons us.
As with the Church, the family — the “domestic church” — is a community of life and love. It educates and leads its members to their full maturity. It serves the good of each person and their salvation in Christ Jesus. It seeks always to love God who loved us first and in response to His gift of love, the family is always generous in its service of neighbor. Within this divinely instituted cell of society, moral values are witnessed, as well as the fundamental values anchored in the Gospel. Within the natural family, children learn real love and how to distinguish right from wrong, as well as how to choose good over evil. From their mother and father entrusted with their guidance, children learn how to love God with their whole being and how to be generous with their gifts. They learn to respect God’s commands and live out their duty as sons and daughters of God enriched with a spiritual heritage. It is within this cell that children learn the full meaning of Saint Paul’s inspired words: “Love is always patient and kind, it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited. Love takes no joy in others people’s sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.” (1 Cor 13:4-7).
humanity.bannerThere are many wounds within the Body of Christ. Families and individuals are suffering. This reality cannot be ignored nor should it be ignored. However, we cannot conclude that humanity can resolve or heal its wounds by its own merit – how hopeless and discouraging this would be!
Our goal is not to succumb to the pressures of secularism and individualism promoted and raised up as ideals; instead, we must raise up God’s plan for the natural family, not diminish it as if God doesn’t understand our situation or is unable to heal our brokenness. We are at this precipice because we have manipulated God’s plan, thinking we can design a better family and humanity. We are here because we have sought happiness in self-centered pleasures and material consumption, not in the God-given value of our life and its ultimate destiny.
The One who creates and sustains the possibility of a marriage between one man and one woman — open to gift of life that is indissoluble, exclusive, and fruitful — is God. The One who allows and enables a person to be pure, chaste, selfless, and generous is God. God instituted marriage; it is not a human construct (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1603). He created man for woman and woman for man, united in ‘one flesh’ for the gift of new life.
No one has the authority to re-define marriage, not even the Church. Our responsibility is to highlight the primacy, vocation, and mission of the family thus building a genuine civilization of life and love. The family by its nature is called to transform the world – to be an agent within the culture – light and salt.

We are proud of the actions of clergy who stand up for the truths of the Church and who, despite backlash from secular society, refuse to back down. This is truly what it means to lead. And we must strive to follow this lead – not only in our own hearts, but with our own voices.

Georgia Right to Life Praises Historic Pro-life Effort







Georgia Right to Life Praises Historic Pro-life Effort
  
Contact: Genevieve Wilson, Georgia Right to Life, 770-339-6880

NORCROSS, Ga., Jan. 28, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) today praised eight Georgia Republican Congressmen for leading an effort to enact historic pro-life legislation in Washington.

Sponsored by U.S. Rep. Jody Hice (R-10th), the Sanctity of Human Life Act (H.R. 426) declares that the right to life guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution "for us and our prosperity" is vested in each human being at the moment of fertilization.

If it becomes law, it would end abortion on demand, which has killed nearly 57 million innocent children since 1973.

"This greatly-needed, groundbreaking legislation has the strong support of pro-life organizations across the country," explained GRTL President, Dan Becker. "It's time for Congress to recognize what the majority of Americans already understand--all innocent human life is sacred and deserves legal protection."

Joining Congressman Hice as co-sponsors were: Rep. Earl "Buddy" Carter (R-1st), Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-3rd), Rep. Austin Scott (R-8th), Rep. Doug Collins (R-9th), Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-11th), Rep. Rick Allen (R-12th), and Rep. Tom Graves (R-14th).

"I praise those who have cosponsored the bill and urge every Georgia congressman to join their colleagues, especially Congressmen Tom Price (R-6th) and Rob Woodall (R-7th) who should join their fellow GOP caucus members in supporting this effort," Becker said.

The measure would replace the deeply-flawed Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), which would have banned abortion after the 20th week fetal age.

That measure, which included rape and incest exceptions and a flawed health of the mother loophole, was withdrawn after drawing fierce opposition by grassroots pro-life groups across the country.

Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York, criticized the premise of the bill, calling it "preposterous" and "ridiculous."

Cardinal Dolan also disagreed with the rape and incest exceptions. "Every life counts," he told "Save The1" founder, Rebecca Kiessling, in a nationally broadcast radio interview.

Warning of a slippery slope, Cardinal Dolan added: "if we make an exception for rape and incest, then next year won't they demand an exception for Down syndrome babies...?"

Georgia Right to Life promotes respect and effective legal protection for all innocent human life from earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of a number of organizations that have adopted Personhood as the most effective pro-life strategy for the 21st century.

Dramatic Reversal: Abortion Protests Lead to Promising Public Policy Shift in New Mexico





 
Dramatic Reversal: Abortion Protests Lead to Promising Public Policy Shift in New Mexico

January 28, 2015

Albuquerque, NM - The first-ever National Strike for Life, held on January 22-23 was an astounding success, especially in New Mexico, where the idea for the two-day strike first originated.

One of the most impressive developments to come out of the event was a dramatic change in heart of New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, who campaigned as a pro-life supporter, but has been reticent in the past to take any action to make abortion facilities more accountable in her state where clinics have no oversight and abortions are legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

"There are literally no abortion laws in New Mexico. There's no waiting period, no parental notification, and no safety standards or inspections. There's no limits on abortion whatsoever. Because of this 'Wild West' attitude toward abortion, babies are killed in Albuquerque up until the day before birth," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, co-author of the new book, Abortion Free, which describes how to end abortion one community at a time. "Women and babies who should be protected by law are vulnerable prey to unscrupulous abortion mills that exploit the moms and take the lives of their babies for profit. It is only reasonable to call on the Governor for reforms."

Now, a remarkable turn-around has taken place as a result of a year of focused protests culminating in last week's National Strike for Life.
