Lifeissues.net: clear thinking about crucial issues

Dear Friends for Life,

Life Dynamics published Vido to combat abortion clinics covering for child predators

Life Dynamics, in Denton, Texas has documented that mandatory reporting statutes which require healthcare workers to report reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to the authorities are being ignored inside American abortion, Planned Parenthood and family planning centers. To address the problem, Life Dynamics, Inc. has contacted over 53,000 personal injury attorneys with this powerful DVD to educate them about the pedophile protection racket being covered up inside these clinics. The response to the DVD has been tremendous so far.

Interesting results: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiObeI-iURY&feature=youtu.be

Editorial Note: If you are a girl who has been taken to an abortion or Planned Parenthood facility to hide sexual abuse or if you are an attorney interested in this project, contact Life Dynamics here www.LifeDynamics.com

God Bless,
Jerry Novotny, OMI

(Abortion): “Video: Meet the man who has helped save over 1,000 babies from abortion in just 3 years” –  Between cancer that required four surgeries, two brain aneurisms that required two more surgeries, and an accident when someone ran into his back with a vehicle, leading to yet more surgeries, it’s a marvel that Barros is standing, let alone maintaining the grueling schedule that he does. Nine hours a day, six days a week, Barros holds vigil outside one of the country’s most notorious late-term abortion mills – the Orlando Women’s Clinic – where he preaches the Gospel and reaches out to abortion-bound women.

 

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

ITEM #1: On personhood

“Personhood” is a concept that has been around for awhile in the pro-life community. Unfortunately, it has not yet achieved recognition as a legitimate, strategic way of communicating the humanity of the baby within the movement or with the general public. It deserves to do so. Personhood is, quite simply, as the dictionary says, “the state or condition of being a person.” If you are a person, then you have personhood.

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

ITEM #2: Our last chance to save traditional marriage

U.S. Supreme court declared DOMA unconstitutional because defenders of heterosexual marriage never argued that gay marriage is unequal and unconstitutional. The Left screamed “equality” in every court in the nation. We never responded on the merits, were unable to state harm, and suffered an entirely preventable loss. There is hope – but only if we immediately change our game.

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

ITEM #3:   Imposing Death with Quality Control Standards

After numerous years of devaluing life, our society hardly thinks much of it anymore. Babies are killed before they take their first breath of air and the sick and elderly are discarded and thought of as useless to society. Anyone not deemed “perfect” can now be thrown away like trash – and more and more people are thinking this is perfectly okay. The gift of life is no longer precious.

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

ITEM #4: Scholar: Liberals, Feminists Have Made Men Afraid to Embrace Their Manhood

“I want the men listening … to embrace your manhood,” Morse said. “Do not be ashamed. … There’s nothing wrong with being a man. That’s what we need from you. We need those who will take responsibility for protecting the weak and will sustain the family. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.”

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

ITEM #5: You can’t say you didn’t know: What a real abortion video looks like

Abortion. A word, a topic so debated in American culture and politics but often only in the abstract. What does an abortion actually look like? What does it actually do besides “end a pregnancy?” This following video from HeresTheBlood.com shows in clear terms an abortion and its aftermath. The majority of the human fetuses in the video are late 1st trimester in the 9th to 12th week of development. At these end there are two children who are older – about late 2nd trimester.

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

ITEM #6: On Addressing the Dignity of Man and Masculinity

How would men today be more able to live out their own unique discipleship and role in both the world, and in the Church, if we were able to articulate how men embody the Christian vocation to holiness in exclusive and particular ways?

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

ITEM #7 Archbishop of Seoul: Instead of talking about euthanasia, the government should aid terminally ill

Parliament begins debate on the introduction of euthanasia in Korea. Archbishop Yeom to AsiaNews: “Unacceptable to stop necessary treatments of patients in the name of other interests. The government needs instead to help those who suffer.”

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

ITEM #8: Christian aid worker battles Nepal’s traffickers

Child trafficking is a multi billion-dollar industry in Nepal. Every year some 7,000 to 10,000 Nepalese girls are taken across the border into India and sold against their will into prostitution. Others are sold into the Middle East or Southeast Asia commercial sex trade. Some of the girls are as young as nine years old.

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

ITEM #9: The Mission to Witness The Ideal of Family

It is giving witness to Christ in our married and family life. It is transmitting the love we experience in our homes. It is an experience which we cannot and should not silence. And I believe many of us feel that need: We experience something so beautiful in our families that we have to proclaim it as Good News. We should proclaim the Gospel of the family, the Good News of Christian marriage, and the profound joy of married and family communion.

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

ITEM #10: Abortion: Unmasking the Demon

It is true that fatherhood is the main target of Satan’s forces, but his is a multi-pronged strategy which includes the destruction of motherhood and childhood. This is blatant in abortions.

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

ITEM #11: The Morality of Using Combat Drones

The U.S. military is increasingly relying on drones to fight its War on Terror. Drones were first used in the 1990s for surveillance and reconnaissance. Under Obama, they’ve become the outstanding aerial combat asset against foreign terrorists. … Using killer robots to carry out the dirty business of war may save U.S. lives and taxpayer funds, at least in the short run. But if waging drone warfare results in the eroding of our good and healthy inhibitions against killing, then we risk becoming like those who hate us.

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

ITEM #12: JONATHAN LAST’S What to Expect When No One is

America’s fertility rate is falling precipitously and if nothing is done to reverse this situation the nation’s population will no longer be able to care for the swelling numbers of the elderly, or have adequate financial resources to maintain a military force capable of resisting hostile and populous nations.
