This Story Explains it Well

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 yr. old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.

'So the doctor said: 'OK, and what do you want me to do?'

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.

'The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.

'She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.

The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor!How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!

'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb. The crime is the same!

Ambassador Glendon Named “Hero at Heart” Award Recipient

Ambassador Glendon Named “Hero at Heart” Award Recipient
Bradley Mattes, Executive Director of Life Issues Institute, announced today that they will present its prestigious “Hero at Heart” award to Mary Ann Glendon, former Ambassador to the Vatican. The honor is given annually to individuals who demonstrate outstanding courage or compassion on behalf of innocent human life. Recipients have included Congressman Henry Hyde and former Kansas Attorney General, Phill Kline.
Ambassador Glendon recently declined the University of Notre Dame’s most revered honor, the Laetare Medal, which was to be presented to her during the university’s May commencement ceremony. In a letter to Notre Dame President, Father John Jenkins, Ambassador Glendon made clear her decision was based on the invitation of pro-abortion President Barack Obama to speak at the commencement, as well as presenting him with an honorary doctor of law degree. The university is currently scrambling to find an alternate designee for the medal.
Mr. Mattes said, “Ambassador Glendon has demonstrated courage and grace in declining this prominent honor. Her action has demonstrated the critical need for all of us to stand up for innocent human life in the face of a pro-abortion president. That’s why she’s a Hero at Heart.”
Both President Obama and the current Congress are the most pro-abortion in the nation’s history. During his first months in office, Mr. Obama has made decisions and appointments which will adversely affect countless lives of America’s innocent unborn babies.
Dr. Willke, President of Life Issues Institute, stated, “Ambassador Glendon’s action has been noticed around the world. She’s sent an unmistakable message that a Catholic university claiming to stand against abortion must be true to its word.”

Glendon Refuses Laetare Medal at ND

This is an amazing letter from a woman of true conviction! Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and former U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican from 2007 to 2009, was chosen to accept the Laetare Medal award at the commencement ceremonies at Notre Dame. Because of the honorary degree being given to President Obama, she has since rescinded her acceptance via letter to ND President John Jenkins! This is a must-read!

Rep. Chris Smith (NJ) Responds to Clinton

( -- This week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted that the term “reproductive rights” includes abortion. Her statement confirms what pro-life organizations have said for years about how abortion advocates want to include seemingly-innocuous terms like “reproductive rights” and “reproductive health” in international documents and legislation and define those terms later as covering abortions. Rep. Chris Smith, whose question prompted Clinton’s answer. "We happen to think that family planning is an important part of women's health," Clinton told Smith. "And reproductive health includes access to abortion that I believe should be safe, legal, and rare." In a statement sent to, Smith said Clinton’s testimony shows how the Obama administration is planning to promote abortion as an international right and to do so at taxpayer expense. 'It is evident that Mrs. Clinton and President Obama want to force the tragedy of abortion upon women around the world especially and including in countries where democratically elected leaders want to continue to protect their unborn children," Smith said. "There are other ways in which both mother and baby are protected, cared for and helped-- with food, nutrition, clean water and life-affirming healthcare. Secretary Clinton's inability to see this will mean more babies will die and more women will suffer the consequence of abortion as a result of U.S. foreign policy overseas.”

What My Dad Knew That President Obama Doesn't

BY Robert Brennan
April 26-May 2, 2009 Issue Posted 4/17/09 at 11:17 AM,

By now, any engaged pro-life Catholic worth his rosary beads has read and reread the astonishing and sickening story of an abortion clinic danse macabre in Florida where a “failed” abortion produced a perfectly live and healthy baby. The owner of the “clinic” apparently took it upon herself to rectify this medical mishap by severing the baby’s umbilical chord without tying it off first and allowed the little girl to die alone inside the confines of a biohazard plastic bag.
On March 3, 2009, the owner was formally charged with two felonies; practicing medicine without a license, a turn of language George Orwell would have appreciated, and tampering with evidence — that’s the legal term for tossing a dying baby into a dumpster.
You can now go back to your lunch.
The story speaks volumes to the schizophrenic nature of trying to codify infanticide. If the lazy and or incompetent abortion doctor had shown up in time, the baby would have been killed the medically and legally approved way and we would have never heard about the story — and the clinic’s owner wouldn’t be facing legal and civil penalties of any sort.
But because the child was murdered while being completely outside the geography of its mother, the brutish and barbaric nature of the clinic owner’s act is seen in the light of day.
Our new president has made protecting this “right” to kill children a high priority of his new administration and backed up his campaign rhetoric with his left hand by signing away the Mexico City Policy stipulations that the former administration adhered to.
But the Florida story reminded me of a lot of things, and, strangely, it reminded me of my dad, a rat, and a lost baby. Okay, stay with me. That kind of sounded like a Dr. Seuss story for the chemically dependant, but allow me to illuminate.
Way back in time when we were young and nine of my dad’s 10 children were still living under the same roof (our sister Kathy was married by now and officially “out of the house”), we had a little problem with rats. Now, as my wonderful Southern Baptist grandmother would tell us, “There’s nothing shameful in getting rats; only in keeping them.”
Needless to say, we launched a full-scale war against these creepy rodents one fateful summer.
We used traps and poison to great effect.
But catching these little beasties was almost as bad as hearing them scamper in the attic at night.
One hot summer night, with our mom and dad out on their weekly shopping night “date,” we all heard a loud “snap” coming from the side porch. Our oldest brother, Roger, a man in his late 20s at the time, led us all out to see the trap that had sprung: It was the biggest rat I had ever seen, and the trap hadn’t killed him.
It writhed and hissed and gave us all a collective case of the willies.
Even Roger was afraid to go near it. He skittishly scooped up the rat, with trap attached, with a flathead shovel, trying to maintain as much distance between him and the trapped rat as possible.
The rest of us maintained a demilitarized zone directly behind Roger. I’ll always remember the sound the rat made as it slid off the shovel into the bottom of a trash can like some kind of Edgar Allan Poe motif. We then did the only sensible thing: put the lid on the trash can, weighed it down with a brick, and waited for our dad to come home.
When he did and learned of the prey we had captured but not dispatched out on the side porch, our dad calmly went out to the back yard, found a 2 x 4, and with a couple of quick and violent thrusts, chalked one up for the humans.
He knew what to do. I don’t think he relished having to do this to the rat, but rats carry nasty diseases, and he was well within the parameters of the “Just War” theory to do what he did.
Many years before, my dad was in a very different situation.
He was in a hospital where my mother had just delivered an extremely premature child; some would call it a fetus, and some would call it a baby.
This little one was maybe slightly younger than the child in Florida. But this one was taken from my mother and father according to God’s timetable.
Even by the infinitely more life-friendly standards of the 1950s, the baby was still deemed too small and unsubstantial to warrant anything more than a sanitized disposal at the hands of hospital staff. No funeral Mass; no blessing; nothing.
But that wasn’t good enough for my father.
He searched throughout the hospital until he found, of all things, a shoebox; he placed this child in the shoebox, and then, with the help of his brother, a priest, arranged for the baby’s inclusion into the grave of his deceased mother. He knew what to do.
President Obama doesn’t know what my dad knew.
By virtue of his intimate association with so-called abortion-rights groups, he is now the national pro-abortionist in chief and leads a charge where many babies, like the little girl in that abortion clinic in Florida, die as violently as that poor old rat did that summer so long ago.
The settings are different. The abortion clinic is clean and sanitary; the bottom of a trash can is not. But the result is the same — and a baby is not a rat.
Of course, my father did not have the benefit of an Ivy League education. My dad didn’t know that according to an organization like PETA that rat had every much a right to life as he did, and according to NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) and its most prominent and powerful advocate in the White House, the baby in that clinic in Florida did not.
Some day, I pray, President Obama will learn what my dad knew.

Planned Parenthood Staffer Condemns Women Who Regret Their Abortions

In this article from, an anonymous (how convenient) PP staffer condemns a woman holding a Silent No More sign that reads "I Regret My Abortion." PP continues to show us just how pro-woman they are not.

Kathy Ireland on Huckabee

Kathy Ireland appeared on the Fox News show, Huckabee this past weekend. She gave a testimony about her conversion to Christianity, and then more impressively, her conversion to being pro-life. This is an amazing explanation from the scientific perspective. Possibly more coherent than I've heard from most politicians! If you have 10 minutes, please check it out and pass it on to friends!

"Raise Your Hand" Video From Priests for Life

Good Friday Reflection

The following is a Good Friday Reflection from Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life:

This meditation, based on a sermon I once heard, is adapted for pro-life concerns.

It's Friday. Jesus is on the cross. He has been killed by his enemies; he is off the scene.

But that's because it's Friday. Sunday's comin'!

It's Friday. Abortionists continue their work 3,300 times a day, tearing off the arms and legs of little babies and crushing their heads.

But that's because it's Friday. Sunday's comin'!

It's Friday. Pro-abortion groups receive blood money from billionaires who are as deceived as they are.

But that's because it's Friday. Sunday's comin'!

It's Friday. Liars attempt to speak for all women and hide the pain of abortion, and ignore the evidence of how it harms women, and call abortion a blessing.

But that's because it's Friday. Sunday's comin'!

It's Friday. People of hardened hearts guard the clinics and usher desperate women in to have their abortions, while keeping them from the pro-life people who want to give them hope.

But that's because it's Friday. Sunday's comin'!

Hope does not mean that we ignore or minimize the evils around us. It means, rather, that we see the whole picture, which is that evil is conquered because of what happened one Sunday morning.

We are called to proclaim, celebrate, and serve that victory, waiting in joyful hope for Christ's return and the full flowering of the Culture of Life!

Indeed, Sunday's comin'!

Lord, fill your people with new hope. Make us vessels of hope to all around us, especially to those who minister in the pro-life movement, that as we engage in the difficult work ahead, we may experience the peace and joy that come only from you and that nobody can take away from us. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

May you and your families have a very blessed and Holy Easter!

Only 2 Days Left!!

To oppose Obama's plan to rescind the Healthcare Workers' Conscience Clause! Please read the story here and make your voice heard! Deadline for response is April 9!

2.5 Million Red Envelopes Sent to Obama

Washington, DC ( -- A White House mailroom staffer has confirmed that nearly 2.5 million red envelopes have made their way to President Barack Obama to protest his pro-abortion record. The staff member says the campaign is one of the largest efforts he can recall in his 35 years working at the White House.
The mailroom worker, identified in a WorldNetDaily interview as Steve, helps oversee the mail destined for the president.
Asked if he had seen a deluge of red envelopes in recent weeks, Steve responded: "Uh, yes. Believe me, they made it here."
"Quite frankly, there was definitely a deluge of mail coming through," he laughed. "I had to handle them all."
Though President Obama is in Europe on a foreign trip, the White House worker said the Obama administration has noticed the flood of red envelopes against abortion.
"I've been here 35 years, so I've seen presidents come and go," he told WND. "This campaign ranks up there with the big ones."
Inspired during a prayer, Massachusetts resident Christ Otto came up with the idea of sending red envelopes to President Barack Obama to protest his pro-abortion policies.
As he told back in February, what started out as an email request to 120 of his ministry friends and supporters turned into a nationwide phenomenon that saw others ask pro-life advocates to coordinate sending their red envelopes to Obama this week.
"We are trying to change the president's heart," Otto says. "This is a message to a man that God hears the cry of innocent blood. It is not a political stunt, although I hope it changes policy in Washington."
"If the capital is flooded with so many letters that no one can deny it, I am hoping the image will be burned into Barack Obama's mind that this is about human blood, and that he lies awake at night until he cannot resist doing something about it," he continued.
A Texas man named Brian Potter set March 31 as the date for sending the red envelopes and that coordination appeared evident in the comments from the White House mailroom employee.
Several web sites have been set up in support of the project and the people who have responded saying they sent or will send envelopes has reached over 1.5 million, though not everyone has registered with the web sites.
"For me, this has been a living parable of my philosophy of life and ministry, : 'Listen to the Lord, and do what He tells you,'" Otto tells "I was not expecting such a dramatic outcome."

Here's an inspiring reason to root for Villanova in the Final Four this weekend! Its star guard, Scottie Reynolds. According to this article at First Things, he was adopted as an infant after being conceived by a single mother. Thank God she made the right choice! This is a wonderful story!

U of MD to Show Pornographic Film on Campus

If you have students at the University of Maryland, you might want to re-think giving them any tuition next semester. The student union intends to show a XXX-rated porno film at the Hoff Theater as "an alternative to late-night drinking and other dangerous activities." Great idea. So instead of drinking, let's get them all riled up for a night of casual sex with complete strangers! Yep, that's certainly an alternative to dangerous activities!! Oh...and of course Planned Parenthood will make an appearance! Where there's porn, there's PP. This article is a must-read.

Update 5:13pm: The movie has been cancelled! I guess they finally came to their senses. This still doesn't excuse the fact that it was originally planned and accepted by the administration.

Update 2 6:32pm: Well, maybe it was more the threat of cancelled state funding rather than actually coming to their senses. At least the right decision was made in the end.
