'War on women' began with a war on words

Media_httpwwwcatholic_fchiv

Posted: 31 Mar 2012 06:42 AM PDT

It actually began before the sexual revolution took hold in the 1960s. It began with the “War on Words” which ushered in a time when women were stripped of their true identity and fed a steady diet of false feminism and moral relativism.

Fr. Barron: Hunger Games 'dangerously prophetic'

Media_httpwwwcatholic_hhcse

Posted: 31 Mar 2012 06:38 AM PDT

Father Robert Barron says the storyline in the blockbuster film “The Hunger Games,” based on the widely popular young adult book, warns of what can happen when a society becomes totally secularized.

The Critical Role Of God’s Mother at This Time

If we wish to be full members of Jesus Christ, all the manifestations of His life must be inside of us in a real way. Now the greatest manisfestation of that love is the Immaculate Conception…Mary His Mother… and our Mother… through whom He willed to be born and bring us our eternal salvation.

Media_httpuploadwikim_jzjvy

When we have in ourselves a place for the Love of Jesus for Mary, when we love Mary together with Jesus, we fulfill God’s desire; and then as a consequence, Mary comes to us with her love of Jesus.

Mary takes everything that is ours and in return she gives everything that is uniquely her possesion: her desire for God to be loved. Her only purpose is that Jesus be loved, and she intercedes constantly that His love be poured into our hearts. The Mother of God directs our entire existence to the love of God the Father in Jesus through the Holy Spirit. Every time Jesus turns to Mary asking: Mother what do you desire? She has only one answer: Son that you be loved with Your own love…the love You gave to me to love You… and which You now wish to share with all of Your children who choose this grace!

Lifeissues.net: clear thinking about crucial issues

Dear Friends For Life,

The mighty abortion company Planned Parenthood is under scrutiny in the United States and gradually cracks are beginning to appear. Abby Johnson, former director of the Planned Parenthood facility in Bryan/College Station, Texas, has filed a whistle blower lawsuit against her former employer. She alleges a "pernicious and persistent" pattern of Medicaid fraud. Abby says in the suit that Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas filed at least 87,075 fraudulent Medicaid claims and collected in excess of $5.7 million from Medicaid to reimburse services which were never performed or not covered by Medicaid. She alleges that approximately 40 percent of the claims submitted by PP Gulf Coast for reimbursement from the Texas WHP program over a two-year period were "false, fraudulent and/or ineligible for reimbursement."

New Hampshire Right to Life (NHRTL) received some vindication when a federal judge recently ordered the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to release records about a $1 million grant that was awarded to Planned Parenthood. NHRTL has waited more than five months for the records, which it says were required by law to be delivered within 20 working days of the request. The judge said the documents must be released by April 1.  

Tony Thornton, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of Lubbock, Texas, was arrested on March 12 for indecent exposure at a local baseball field, which is reputed to be a homosexual cruising spot. The police report lists a 43-year-old male as the victim. It did not state whether any children were present.

And Planned Parenthood closes for the day during 40 Days for Life vigil. Betty Scranton reports from Glenwood Springs, Colorado, that Planned Parenthood was closed on Saturday, March 18, in the face of the 40 Days for Life vigil being held there.

We will keep you informed as Planned Parenthood's true colors and cracks become public. Your prayers are still very much needed. Go to STOPP for more current news and type Planned Parenthood into search.

God Bless,
Jerry Novotny, OMI

(Breast Cancer Victim): "Conception to birth" –  A MUST read for our viewers. I think you will all enjoy this excellent LIFE video. Be sure to watch until the end and see the development of the heart, brain, etc..

****************************************

ITEM #1: Tough Questions, Timeless Moral Truths

Father Brian Mullady on same-sex marriage, contraception, the death penalty, and other pressing moral issues.

****************************************

ITEM #2: Liberian President remains firm: no legalization of homosexual acts

"We've got certain traditional values in our society that we would like to preserve," President Johnson Sirleaf said.

****************************************

ITEM #3: English Catholics campaign against gay marriage

The Catholic Church in England intensified its campaign against government plans to legalize same-sex marriage Sunday, urging the faithful to protect the "true meaning" of matrimony for future generations.

****************************************

ITEM #4: Over 1 million Thais are infected with HIV/AIDs

The Public Health Ministry reports that the number of HIV/AIDs patients in Thailand is on the rise with over 1 million patients currently.

****************************************

ITEM #5: Asia is the world's top importer of weapons

Asia is the world's top importer of weapons, this according to a study released on Monday by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). Over the past five years, Asia and Oceania accounted for 44 per cent in volume of conventional arm imports, compared with 19 per cent for Europe, 17 per cent for the Middle East, 11 per cent for North and South America, and 9 per cent for Africa. China, which was the world's top importer in 2006-2007, dropped to fourth place, not because of any pacifist change of heart but because it boosted domestic production and exports.

****************************************

ITEM #6: PepsiCo Sidesteps Evidence in Denial Over Aborted Fetal Cells in Flavor Testing

PepsiCo is denying charges that it has contracted with a company that uses cell lines derived from aborted babies for flavor research. As reported in a pair of stories by The New American, a PepsiCo shareholder had earlier filed a resolution with the federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in an effort to stop a $30-million deal the company had inked with Senomyx, a company that, according to the pro-life group Children of God for Life, uses cell lines from aborted babies in its business of creating artificial flavor enhancers.

****************************************

ITEM #7 How are children a blessing?

The Churchs teaching on contraception is not just a prohibition but a calling to the joy of parenthood. Procreation of children, far greater than an obligation, is an outpouring of Gods love to spouses, who in turn pour out their love to their children.

****************************************

ITEM #8: Chinese study finds link between previous abortion and depression among pregnant women

In an analysis of the study, Dr. Patricia Coleman noted that the findings were consistent with those of previous studies.

****************************************

ITEM #9: Another Failed 'Accommodation'

It is clear that the Obama administration is not backing down from its anti-conscience mandate but hopes to bury the controversy with bureaucratic delay. In its "Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking," the government now officially promises to take action at some time in the future to address the conflict. The notice, issued on Friday, takes 32 pages to explain that the president still doesn't have a clue how to balance the demands of the Left, which insists that all women should have free access to drugs that cause early abortion, sterilization procedures, and contraceptives, and the Catholic Church, which believes the mandate is a government violation of conscience and religious liberty.

****************************************

ITEM #10: The Introduction to "Adam and Eve After the Pill" by Mary Eberstadt

Time magazine and Francis Fukuyama, Raquel Welch and a series of popes, some of the world's leading scientists, and many other unlikely allies all agree: No single event since Eve took the apple has been as consequential for relations between the sexes as the arrival of modern contraception. Moreover, there is good reason for their agreement. By rendering fertile women infertile with nearly 100 percent accuracy, the Pill and related devices have transformed the lives and families of the great majority of people born after their invention. Modern contraception is not only a fact of our time; it may even be the central fact, in the sense that it is hard to think of any other whose demographic, social, behavioral, and personal fallout has been as profound.

****************************************

ITEM #11: Georgetown Prof Stands Against the Bishops

Jacques Berlinerblau, director of the Program for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University, wrote a piece for The Chronicle of Higher Education, arguing against the bishops' stand for religious liberty. He said that "religious freedom" is "regrettably becoming a codeword and umbrella term for certain types of Conservative Christian policy." Read more…..

****************************************

ITEM #12: Abortion Scandal at Saint Mary's College of California

It's always scandalous when a Catholic college hosts an extreme pro-abortion activist like Amy Richards to lecture to students and others. But it somehow seems worse when the Catholic college is named after Mary, the Mother of God. Richards has been quoted in the New York Times explaining why she allegedly killed two of her three unborn children when she was pregnant with triplets.

Kudos to Father Thomas Milota, pastor of Saints Peter and Paul Parish in Naperville, Ill., for recently sending a letter to his parishioners encouraging them to oppose the construction of a clinic specializing in the procedure of in vitro fertilization.

The text of Father Milota’s letter is as follows: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/abbott/120331

Dear Deacon,

I'll get to the London update in just a bit!

Over these last 38 days, babies have been saved …
abortion workers have had changes of heart and quit
their jobs … and two abortion centers have closed
for good.

Guess what? YOU can still be part of it!

It's not too late to pray at any of the 258 campaigns.
Saturday is usually the busiest day for abortions, so
know that your presence and you prayers are needed –
TODAY!

Please check for a location near you:

http://40daysforlife.com/location

… and, if possible, join the vigil.

——————————————————
LONDON, ENGLAND
——————————————————

Yesterday, I asked for prayers for the London campaign,
as they were holding a major evening vigil in front of
the abortion center — and they were told to expect a
pro-abortion counter-protest.

So here's a quick update.

"The event was a massive success," said Robert, the
40 Days for Life coordinator in London. "We had around
400 to 500 … at least! A really positive vibe and
loads of media interest, too."

The vigil participants prayed and sang hymns. Even the
media characterized the vigil as "peaceful." A
pro-abortion group did show up — blowing whistles,
banging drums and chanting slogans. But they had no
apparent impact on the vigil.

Robert sent a picture of the people praying outside
the abortion center — this is one you REALLY want
to see! Please go to:

http://40daysforlife.com/blog/?p=3123

Media_http40daysforli_rdobu

Now … on to the rest of today's report!

The heart that God impacts the most during a 40 Days
for Life can be your own — just read these stories
from the 40 Days for Life blog. For each of these
prayer volunteers, this is personal.

——————————————————
PRAYER VOLUNTEER #1:
——————————————————

"This Lent was my first experience with 40 Days for
Life. I was very nervous the first day I showed up to
pray with people I had never met. I asked myself who
or what am I afraid of. It was a very good question
to ask myself.

"As a post-abortive woman myself, it was a huge step
to take in honoring my son, who was lost to abortion
in 1976. I am very grateful to God that I was able
to stand there, hold my head up, and pray … to at
last DO something productive on this issue."

——————————————————
PRAYER VOLUNTEER #2:
——————————————————

"I am inspired to say, 'Never to stop fighting for
life.' I had my first abortion at age 14 and hardly
knew what it meant — then another through the
following years, still not understanding that it
was true lives being terminated.

"When a friend talked me out of a fourth at age 23,
it was the best thing me friend could have done. My
one and only son is now 18 and graduating high school.
It was the best decision I ever made."

——————————————————
PRAYER VOLUNTEER #3:
——————————————————

"The devotional by Carmen Pate on Day 31 struck a
personal chord with me.

"I was one of those women seeking love and acceptance
wherever I could find it because I was living far away
from God. I, too, was faced with an unplanned pregnancy.

"I, too, wanted to 'get rid of it' (the pregnancy)
because it felt like it was the end of my life as I
knew it. It was a devastating feeling at the time.

"My doctor had the good sense to order an ultrasound at
four weeks, where I saw a tiny human heart — a beating
and alive heart. I knew in that moment that I couldn't
stop that heartbeat. I got the sense that I had a duty
to protect the tiny person growing inside me.

"My daughter is now 13. She has been such a blessing in
my life. So, yes, my unplanned pregnancy was the end of
my life as I knew it. And I thank God daily for that.

"God bless all of you for your dedication and devotion
to preserving life and to loving and praying for the
unborn children and their mothers."

Today's devotional is from Carmen Pate, a member of
the 40 Days for Life board of directors.

——————————————————
DAY 39 INTENTION
——————————————————

Pray that volunteers will replace exhaustion or
discouragement with rejoicing over the miracles we
have seen thus far, and enthusiastic service as
God takes us on to victory!

——————————————————
SCRIPTURE
——————————————————

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a
little while, if need be, you have been grieved by
various trials, that the genuineness of your
faith, being much more precious than gold that
perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be
found to praise, honor, and glory at the
revelation of Jesus Christ.

— 1 Peter 1:6-7

——————————————————
REFLECTION by Carmen Pate, 40 Days for Life
——————————————————

We have reason to rejoice when we consider the
many babies whose lives have been saved during the
40 Days for Life campaign.

Add to those lives, the women and men who have
been spared from a devastating decision and now
have opportunity to make a plan for their baby
that is both life affirming and God honoring.

Whether directly, or indirectly, you have
contributed to these testimonies of praise with
your sacrificial service.

Perhaps you have been grieved by various trials
during your commitment to 40 days.

The attacks of the enemy come in many forms –
difficulties in relationships, finances, health.

Or maybe you are physically and mentally exhausted
and have been marking off the days on your
calendar, eagerly waiting for April 5.

Consider these trials in light of God's plan for
you.

The Apostle Paul understood the big picture when
he said in Romans 8:18, "For I consider that the
sufferings of this present time are not worthy to
be compared with the glory which shall be revealed
in us."

This is our Hope and our victory. Let us rejoice
in the opportunity to give that Hope to others in
our path.

——————————————————
PRAYER
——————————————————

Dear Heavenly Father, we sing to You a new song,
for You have done marvelous things. Forgive us
when we allow circumstances to defeat us. You give
power to the faint and You increase strength in
those who have no might.

We rest in You, dear Lord, and ask You to empower
us again for Your service as You work out Your
plan for us and through us.

May You receive glory through our victory in
Christ, in whose name we pray, Amen.

printable PDF to share with friends:

——————————————————

To ensure that this 40 Days for Life finishes strong,
if there is any way you can carve out one extra hour
this weekend to go pray outside the nearest abortion
facility … it could make a world of difference.

Who knows? God might even use you to help save a life!

Yours for Life,

Shawn Carney
Campaign Director
40 Days for Life

Hunger Games Star Elizabeth Banks Promotes Planned Parenthood
The movie Hunger Games is the most popular film in the nation and star Elizabeth Banks is already trading in her newfound popularity for a chance to get on the soap box and preach her values to the public.

Banks has written a blog for the iVillage blog series CelebVillage in which she talks about the birth of her son Felix, who turns 1-year-old today, via a surrogate. Pro-life advocates have long held concerns about surrogacy because it takes the focus off of adoption of children who are seeking good homes and because surrogates could change their minds about the surrogacy contract and decide to have an abortion.

Banks also credits birth control pills for allowing her to have her son and promotes their usage.

But the portion of Banks column that is sure to draw the strongest condemnation from pro-life advocates is her promotion of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. While it also promotes women s health services, Planned Parenthood is the biggest abortion company in the nation, doing more than one-quarter of all abortions in the United States on an annual basis and aggressively lobbying against any pro-life laws to limit or reduce abortions or to help inform women about alternatives or risks and dangers. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/hunger-games-star-elizabeth-banks-promotes-planned-parenthood/

Planned Parenthood Builds Texas Abortion Biz Near Adoption Ctr
A few months ago we told you of the new abortion supercenter Planned Parenthood was quietly planning in Fort Worth, TX. While we had been told off the record where that location was, it wasn t until recently it was confirmed Planned Parenthood s new abortion facility will be next to a large adoption center.

Despite Planned Parenthood being stripped of its funding in Texas, it seems they haven t suffered very much financially because their new center has begun construction next to the Gladney Adoption Center, a staple in Fort Worth.

The new center at 6400 John Ryan Drive is being described as a state-of-the-art facility which, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, will include a larger family planning center, an ambulatory surgical care center and offices. Construction began last week and the facility is set to open next year. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/planned-parenthood-builds-new-texas-abortion-biz-near-adoption-ctr/

Obama s Abortion Agenda Not Good for American Women
Obama s ploy to monopolize women s votes is deteriorating. New polls show that radical, pro-abortion President Barack Obama is losing favor with American women despite launching his Women for Obama campaign solely to bolster his ratings with women.

Respondents to a Bloomberg National Poll indicate that forty-nine percent of women say they would choose Obama over a Republican opponent. This time four years ago, Obama s support among women was fifty-six percent. Women are becoming more aware of Obama s tactics to manipulate their vote and advance his abortion agenda in the United States and abroad.
Despite his overreaching interest in women s health, President Obama does not seem to care about women. Instead, his focus has been to promote his abortion agenda and the abortion lobby under the guise of female empowerment and women s health care as a means to muster up votes. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/obamas-abortion-agenda-not-good-for-american-women/

Seven Years Ago Today, Terri Schiavo Lived Her Last Day
On March 30, 2005, Terri Schiavo had her last full day of life on this earth and both her family and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life are remembering the last moments they shared with the woman whose former husband won a court order to take her life.

Terri was killed on March 31, 2005 when her former husband won a protracted legal battle against the Schindler family for the right to disconnect her feeding tube. Doctors who examined Terri say she was not in a persistent vegetative state and that her condition could have been improved has she been given access to more medical care and rehabilitative treatment. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/seven-years-ago-today-terri-schiavo-lived-her-last-day/

New Study Shows Abstinence Education Effective
Research published this week revealed more evidence that a Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) abstinence program is effective in delaying sexual onset. Four major conclusions are drawn from the article, entitled, Impact of the Choosing the Best Program in Communities Committed to Abstinence Education.

Students in an SRA class were more likely to delay the onset of sexual activity from pre to posttest than their peers. The findings of this study are more realistic and relevant than the Jemmott study on abstinence, as well as most comprehensive sex ed. research since the study occurred in schools. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/new-study-shows-abstinence-education-effective/

Georgia Legislature OKs Fetal Pain-Based Abortion Ban
Georgia is looking to become the latest state to approve a law that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy based on the scientific evidence showing unborn children feel pain at least at that point in development, if not sooner.

The bill, which now goes to Governor Nathan Deal for his signature, will make Georgia the seventh state to adopt such a law. None of those measures has been successfully challenged in court.

Georgia Right to Life president Dan Becker applauded passage of the measure and said it could very well save the lives of more than 1,000 unborn children who die annually from such abortions in his state. The state s current law allows abortions for almost any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/georgia-legislature-oks-fetal-pain-based-abortion-ban/

Notre Dame Still Links to Pro-Abortion Internships
The University of Notre Dame continues to link its students to internships at some of the biggest pro-abortion organizations in the nation, despite protests from pro-life advocates upset by them.

Notre Dame is offering students summer internship opportunities at several notorious pro-abortion organizations.

Our majors have interned at the following organizations, states the university s web site, which includes: http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/notre-dame-still-links-to-pro-abortion-internships/

Contractor Leaves Job After Learning It s Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood is in the process of building a new mega- abortion facility next to an adoption agency in Forth Worth, Texas. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/contractor-leaves-job-after-learning-its-planned-parenthood/

Dick Cheney s Change of Heart: Liberals Still Complain
Liberals have been complaining about Cheney ever since Bush v. Gore. And they ve wanted him to have a change of heart. Now, he has a change of heart. And they are still complaining.. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/dick-cheneys-change-of-heart-liberals-still-complain/

Illinois Abortion Biz That Closed Would Have Failed Probe
The Pro-Life Action League reported late last year that the Dimensions Medical Center abortion facility in Des Plaines, Illinois had closed. But at the time, we didn t know why it closed. Now we do: Dimensions would have never passed an inspection. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/illinois-abortion-biz-that-closed-would-have-failed-probe/

Former Britney Spears Singer Meets Baby Who Saved Another From Abortion
You may remember the story I shared of my little Preacher Boy Mattie and how his LIFE story shared by a dear friend of mine, Kelly Clinger, saved the LIFE of another. (If you don t know the story, click HERE and read it before reading any further) . http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/former-britney-spears-backup-singer-meets-baby-she-saved-from-abortion/

Republican States Most Likely to OK Pro-Life Laws
The Tennessee state House has approved legislation making it so abortion practitioners can t abandon women after failed abortions by not having admitting privileges at a local hospital when botched abortions occur. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/republican-states-most-likely-to-ok-pro-life-laws/

Judge Tosses Louisiana Law for Damages Against Abortion Docs
A judge has tossed out a Louisiana law that has been on the books for more than a decade that makes it easier for victims of botched and failed abortions to win damages in lawsuits against abortion practitioners. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/judge-tosses-louisiana-law-for-damages-against-abortion-docs/

New Hampshire House Passes Three Pro-Life Bills on Abortion
The New Hampshire state House voted this week to approve three key pro-life bills that will limit and reduce abortions including a ban on abortion after 20 weeks, a 24-hour waiting period, and an informed consent measure to give women accurate information. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/03/30/new-hampshire-house-passes-three-pro-life-bills-on-abortion/

Argentina Supreme Court Falls Prey to UN Abortion Pressure
In a surprising ruling, the Supreme Court of Argentina has declared abortion is a woman s right in case of rape under international law.

Dear Friend in Christ,

As we prepare for the remembrance of Our Blessed Lord's Passion and Death, there could hardly be a more insulting way to begin this, than with a major liturgical abuse. But unfortunately, such an abuse has become extremely common. Please take a few minutes to watch this episode of the Vortex and pass it to your family and friends.

GOD Bless you and your loved ones,

Michael Voris
