Our Baby Boy Lived Less Than Five Hours But She’s Still the “World’s Best Mom”
That’s a lofty title, I know. And believe it or not, I know her. Even more amazing (to me) is that I’m married to her.

One might think the world’s best mom would be someone with years of motherly experience and a number of kids — someone who has been doing it for a long time. My wife, Katie, doesn’t come close to qualifying under those terms. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/our-baby-boy-lived-less-than-five-hours-but-shes-still-the-worlds-best-mom/

Spokesman Claims Recycling Plant Never Burned Aborted Babies for Electricity
A spokesman for the facility found to be burning aborted babies for energy says the recycling plant never burned aborted babies and claims multiple reports of that happening in Oregon are false.

Local officials in Oregon are upset that an energy plant is reportedly burning aborted babies from Canada to generate electricity. As LifeNews reported, they launched an investigation into how and why aborted babies were included along with medical waste shipped from Canada to Oregon to be incinerated for energy at a recycling plant. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/spokesman-says-recycling-plant-never-burned-aborted-babies-for-electricity/

When My Son Told Me: I Wish You Hadn’t Aborted My Brother and Sister
This particular day seemed ordinary, like so many others. I picked up my children from school as usual. My son Gabriel began to tell me about his day. He told me that during class that day one of his tasks was to write a story about building a time machine.

“Oh, really,” I replied as I listened. Then I asked him “If you could go back in time, to which time period would you travel?” In my mind I thought he would say when Jesus lived or when dinosaurs roamed the earth. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/when-my-son-told-me-i-wish-you-hadnt-aborted-my-brother-and-sister/

Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz in Lubbock, Texas Closes Thanks to Pro-Life Law
Here is more evidence that pro-life laws make a difference. When Texas approved a measure that banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, it included a provision that required abortion practitioners to have admitting privileges at local hospitals.

So many abortion clinics do not have abortion practitioners who can admit patients to hospitals when, as frequent happens, abortions go awry and women are killed or injured by botched abortions. Such abortion clinics must also meet the same kind of standards as legitimate medical centers that perform surgeries, but many abortion clinics are not able to meet those health and safety standards because they offer sub par medical care for women. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/planned-parenthood-abortion-biz-in-lubbock-texas-closes-thanks-to-pro-life-law/

Man Whose Mom Abandoned Him in a McDonalds 36 Years Ago: Thanks for Giving Me Life
David Volk was just hours old when he was found by a manager in the sink of the women’s restroom in a Newark McDonald’s in December 1977. He was adopted a year later and never really considered looking for his birth mother because he had no information about her.

But, inspired by the case of a woman who found her birthmother decades after she left her in a Burger King, Volk says he is thankful for his life and is looking for his birthmom. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/man-whose-mom-abandoned-him-in-a-mcdonalds-36-years-ago-thanks-for-giving-me-life/

Study: Abortion Multiplies Women’s Breast Cancer Risk by 2.8 Times
An Indian study found a statistically significant 2.8-fold increased breast cancer risk among women who’d had abortions.[1] Dr. Unmesh Takalkar led the study. He serves as a consultant surgeon and chief medical director at United CIIGMA Hospital in India and an endoscopic surgeon and fellow at Johns Hopkins.

Although dozens of studies dating from 1957 support an abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link[2], the latest study is the seventh on the Indian subcontinent to implicate abortion as a risk factor for the disease[1,3-8], with a Bangladesh study reporting as much as a statistically significant 20-fold risk elevation.[3] http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/study-abortion-multiplies-womens-breast-cancer-risk-by-2-8-times/

NARAL’s False Victory: Google May Not Have Pulled a Single Pregnancy Center Ad
One of the leading national networks for pregnancy centers is responding to the dustup this week that Google has supposedly banned pregnancy center ads after pressure from the pro-abortion group NARAL. But it appears NARAL is enjoying a hollow victory, as few, if any, pregnancy centers have seen their ads removed.

Representatives from from Heartbeat International, a network of thousands of pregnancy centers across the country and around the world, tell LifeNews that they’re not worried about their ads being banned because they don’t lie to or mislead women, contrary to NARAL’s false claims. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/pregnancy-centers-google-banning-ads-shows-naral-is-anti-woman-anti-choice/

Congressman’s Bill Stops Federal Funds for Medical Centers Targeting Kids Like Justina Pelletier
Congressman Steve Stockman will introduce legislation cutting off funds to medical institutions that conduct greater than minimal risk research on wards of the state, deny First Amendment rights to parents and wards of the state, and take children away from their parents over disagreements on subjective medical diagnoses. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/30/congressmans-bill-stops-federal-funds-for-medical-centers-targeting-kids-like-justina-pelletier/

An unusual decision to put a transgender ‘girl’ at a Connecticut women’s prison is sparking a heated debate over how to handle a teenager called dangerous by the state but portrayed as vulnerable by her attorney.

Catholic group (FOCUS) wins court battle against Obamacare contraception rule

The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) will not be required to provide medications that they disagree with the use of after last week’s ruling from the US District Court for the District of Colorado.

Contraception mandate turning into abortion mandate?

During a recent Supreme Court argument over the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptives mandate, Justice Anthony Kennedy cut to the heart of the government’s argument. “Under your view,” he told Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, “a for-profit corporation could be forced to pay for abortions.”

Bill bars contraception questions

A bill in Lansing would prohibit employers from asking employees if they use contraception or from discriminating against them for using birth-control products.

Is Quebec’s IVF program an ‘open bar’?

Is there such a thing as “the right” to have a child? And what about the right of a child to know his or her origins? Should society condone the use of a female body as a hothouse for babies by financing the in vitro procedure with public money?

Obama admin includes unborn children in child abuse report, doesn’t regard abortion as abuse

The Administration of Children and Families’ report accounts for the abuse of unborn children, but does not account for the harms brought by abortion.

Catholic college hires dean who served on Planned Parenthood advisory board

Despite a backlash from alumni and national Catholic media, Loyola Marymount University (LMU) has hired Dr. Robbin Crabtree, who handled media relations for a Planned Parenthood chapter, to head its Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts (BCLA).

Detroit Catholic hospital gives abortionists admitting privileges, dispenses abortifacient drugs

A pro-life Catholic in Detroit says she is fed up after three years of pressing a Catholic-affiliated hospital to sever ties with four abortionists and stop offering sterilizations and abortion-causing drugs, to no avail. Now, she’s calling on Archbishop Allen Vigneron to use his moral authority to force Providence Park Hospital to adhere to Catholic standards.

 


 

The U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Issued What Should be the Last Ruling for Pro-Life Action League’s Historic Three Decade Case

Contact: Tom Ciesielka, 312-422-1333, tc@tcpr.net

CHICAGO, April 30, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — “This ruling is long-awaited good news,” said Joseph Scheidler, founder of the Pro-life Action League and the chief defendant in the twenty-eight-year-old RICO lawsuit filed by the National Organization for Women.

The Pro-life Action League had petitioned for reimbursement of the costs incurred in the seven-week trial and subsequent appeals, which culminated in an unprecedented third hearing at the United States Supreme Court and a unanimous victory for Scheidler. NOW vehemently opposed the League’s efforts to recover its costs. In May, 2013, Seventh Circuit Judge Charles Norgle awarded $63,391.45 to the Pro-life Action League in a detailed opinion. NOW appealed, unwilling to acknowledge the League’s legitimate claim.

In oral arguments before Judges William Baumer, Frank Easterbrook and David Hamilton on April 18, 2014 — Good Friday — attorney Ariel Livenbuk, arguing for the Pro-Life Action League, presented a case for the court to affirm Judge Norgle’s ruling. NOW’s attorney was grilled by Judge Easterbrook (link to oral arguments) and proved unable to provide any precedent for NOW’s position that the League should have “pestered” the court for action on the costs.

This is the final victory for Joe Scheidler, known as the “Godfather” of the pro-life movement. His case has been to the Supreme Court three times. In 1994 a 9-0 decision allowed the case to go forward to trial as a civil RICO action. In 2003, the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 to overturn the District Court jury’s 1998 guilty finding against Scheidler and his co-defendants. And in 2006, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled again in favor of Scheidler, putting to rest an effort by NOW to keep the case alive in the Seventh Circuit.

In the latest Federal Court decision, Judge Easterbrook ended his written opinion with the words, “This litigation has lasted far too long. At last it is over.” “I hope he’s right,” added Scheidler.

Joe Scheidler is available for interviews. His official biography, as National Director of the Pro-Life Action League, can be found at: prolifeaction.org/about/joe.php.

About the Pro-Life Action League
The Pro-Life Action League was founded by Joe Scheidler in 1980 with the aim of saving babies from abortion through direct action. Not content to await a political or judicial solution to abortion, the League seeks to stop the killing of unborn children right now through all available peaceful means, including public protest, sidewalk counseling, education, youth outreach, and national leadership.

St. Pius V

 

Dear Family of Mary!

 

“Dear children! Open your hearts to the grace which God is giving you through me, as a flower that opens to the warm rays of the sun. Be prayer and love for all those who are far from God and His love. I am with you and I intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus, and I love you with immeasurable love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (April 25, 2014)

 

Today we celebrate the feast of St. Pius V, the Pope of the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. Pope Pius V rallied the Christian faithful of Europe to withstand the invasion of the Turks by praying the Rosary. On October 7, 1571, there was a decisive battle at sea that destroyed the Turkish fleet, sending them limping home. Europe was saved. Pope Pius V believed it was praying the Rosary that turned the tide, through the intercession of Our Lady. He declared October 7 the Feast of the Holy Rosary. He also gave Our Lady the title of Our Lady of Victory and referred to her as “Help of Christians”.

 

It seems that we need to have the same confidence in Our Lady and the prayer of the Rosary in these days. The future hangs in the balance now. Victory will come through the Rosary, as Sr. Lucia of Fatima has said. It helps to pray with confidence. These two prayers below may help us to stir up our courage and faith in our Mother, Our Lady of Victory!

 

Prayer to Our Lady, Help of Christians

 

Most Holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christian,
how sweet it is to come to your feet
imploring your perpetual help.
If earthly mothers cease not to remember their children,
how can you, the most loving of all mothers forget me?
Grant then to me, I implore you,
your perpetual help in all my necessities,
in every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations.
I ask for your unceasing help for all who are now suffering.
Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners.
Grant through your intercessions many vocations to the religious life.
Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked you on earth we may love and eternally thank you in heaven.

(St. John Bosco)

Amen.  

 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

You Won’t Believe What a Twin Who Survived Abortion Says in a Letter to the Abortion Doctor
Claire Culwell knows what it’s like to be a survivor. At the age of 13, her mother learned she was pregnant and decided to have an abortion, though she didn’t know she was pregnant with twins.

After she had an abortion of Claire’s brother, she returned to the abortion clinic after realizing she still had a growing and developing baby inside of her. Told she was too late to have a second abortion, she gave birth to Claire, who struggled on life support as she dealt with a myriad of medical issues following her birth. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/29/you-wont-believe-what-a-twin-who-survived-abortion-says-in-a-letter-to-the-abortion-doctor/

Embattled DCF Chair Resigns After Controversy Over Justina Pelletier’s Parents Losing Custody
The embattled Chief of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF), Olga Roche, has resigned following the controversy surrounding the costly mismanagement of Justina Pelletier’s case and the tragic recent deaths of three children.Now, under intense scrutiny by the Massachusetts General Assembly. House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D), who called for Roche’s resignation, told radio station WBUR:

“DCF is an agency in crisis; and we must immediately undertake the difficult, but crucial, task of creating an effective structure of protection and care for our most vulnerable children.” http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/29/embattled-dcf-chair-resigns-after-controversy-over-justina-pelletiers-parents-losing-custody/

Doctors Advised Abortion, But My Little Miracle is a Symbol of Hope for Others
Little Maisie Smith, when she was 18-week-old in her mother’s woman, was diagnosed with a diaphragm defect that led doctors to advise her mother to consider abortion. The congenital diaphragmatic hernia condition made it so her organs slipped into her chest cavity, preventing her lungs from growing properly.

But her mother had no interest in abortion and watned to do everything possible to allow Maisie a chance at life. After a surgery to correct the condition shortly after birth, mother and baby are happy. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/29/doctors-advised-abortion-but-my-little-miracle-is-a-symbol-of-hope-for-others/

After Google Bans Pregnancy Center Ads, NARAL Now Lobbying Yahoo and Bing
Over the next few days, we should learn more about NARAL’s successful campaign to convince Google to pull ads paid for by Crisis Pregnancy Centers. Yesterday we talked about what could be gleaned from a story in the Washington Post (“Google accepts NARAL’s ‘analysis,’ rejects pro-life CPC ads”). Today we’ll talk about what comes through in NARAL’s victory lap fund-raiser and a story in The Hill newspaper.

For those who missed yesterday’s post, Google accepted NARAL’s assertion that CPC’s were deliberately misleading in their advertising. The Post story intimated that only “some” CPC ads would be affected. In fact, NARAL targeted 79% of CPC ads. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/29/after-google-bans-pregnancy-center-ads-naral-now-lobbying-yahoo-and-bing/

Man Beats His Infant Son Until His Skull Cracks, Anguished Deaf Mom Never Heard His Cries
What prompts someone to show such a callous disregard for human life?

Abortion practitioners and abortion clinic staffers kill hundreds, even thousands of babies in abortions. Every day, everyweek knowingly snuffing out of the life of a little baby. And there there are those who, perhaps without premeditation, take the life of or severely injure a little baby. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/29/man-beats-his-infant-son-until-his-skull-cracks-anguished-deaf-mom-never-heard-his-cries/

Are Pro-Lifers Compromising When They Support Bills Stopping Some Abortions?
Nathan Trapuzzano was a young 24-year-old man who served as a sidewalk counselor at a local abortion clinic in Indiana and had a baby on the way. Tragically, he was murdered in a shooting while out walking his neighborhood.

Eight months pregnant, Jennifer revealed . http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/29/are-pro-lifers-compromising-when-they-support-bills-stopping-some-abortions/

Why are Some Outraged by Burning Aborted Babies for Electricity But Apathetic About Abortion?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the big scandal in Marion County, Oregon (Salem): for years, it’s been revealed, the bodies of aborted and miscarried babies from British Columbia have made up some of the fuel in their waste-to-energy plant. In plain English: dead human bodies were incinerated to heat Salem-area homes.

I think all compassionate people (whether pro-life or pro-choice) can agree that families who lose a child to miscarriage should have full control over what happens to the remains, and that they probably wouldn’t have chosen this. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/29/why-are-some-outraged-by-burning-aborted-babies-for-electricity-but-apathetic-about-abortion/

Obama Admin Includes Unborn Children in Child Abuse Report, Doesn’t Regard Abortion as Abuse

St. Catherine of Siena

 

Dear Family of Mary!

 

“Dear children! Open your hearts to the grace which God is giving you through me, as a flower that opens to the warm rays of the sun. Be prayer and love for all those who are far from God and His love. I am with you and I intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus, and I love you with immeasurable love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (April 25, 2014)

 

On this feast of St. Catherine of Siena, I thought it would be lovely to share this prayer written by St. Catherine to Our Lady. This prayer comes from the deeply mystical heart of Catherine and reveals Our Lady in all her beauty! We are so blessed to have such a Mother with us, interceding for us and loving us immeasurably!

 

MARIAN PRAYER OF SAINT CATHERINE OF SIENA  (A.D. 1347-1380)  

 

O Mary, temple of the Trinity.

O Mary, bearer of fire.

O Mary, dispenser of mercy.

O Mary, restorer of human generation,

because the world was repurchased

by means of the sustenance

that your flesh found in the Word,

Christ repurchased the world

with his Passion

and you with your suffering.

O Mary, peaceful ocean.

O Mary, giver of peace.

O Mary, fruitful land.

You, O Mary,

are that new plant

from which we have the fragrant flower of the Word,

only-begotten Son of God,

because this Word was sown in you,

O fruitful land.

You are the land and the plant.

O Mary, vehicle of fire

you bore the fire hidden

and veiled beneath the ash of your humanity.

O Mary, vase of humility,

in which there burns the light of true knowledge

with which you lifted yourself above yourself

and yet were pleasing to the eternal Father;

hence he took

and brought you to himself,

loving you with a singular love.

With this light and fire of your charity

and with the oil of your humility,

you drew and inclined His divinity

to come into you,

although He was first drawn to us

by the most ardent fire of His inestimable charity.

Today, O Mary,

you have become a book

in which our rule is written.

In you, today,

is written the wisdom of the eternal Father.

In you, today,

is manifested the strength and freedom of all humankind.

I say that the dignity of humankind

is manifested because when I look at you, O Mary,

I see that the hand of the Holy Spirit

has written the Trinity in you,

forming in you the Incarnate Word,

the only begotten Son of God.

He has written for us

the wisdom of the Father,

that is, the Word.

He has written for us his power,

because he was powerful

in effecting this great mystery.

And He has written for us

the clemency of that Holy Spirit,

because only through grace

and the Divine clemency

was so great a mystery ordained and accomplished.

But today I ardently make my request,

because it is the day of graces,

and I know that nothing is refused to you, O Mary.

Today, O Mary,

your land has generated the Savior for us.

O Mary, blessed are you among women

throughout the ages.

Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Judge Sides With NAACP’s Attempt to Silence Black Pro-Lifer
A judge has issued a ruling in the NAACP lawsuit against a black pro-life leader who exposed its pro-abortion views in an article appearing at LifeNews.com.

In February, the NAACP threatened to sue LifeNews.com and Ryan Bomberger, a LifeNews blogger , for a column that took the civil rights organization to task over its abortion position. The NAACP is upset about a column Bomberger wrote at LifeNews titled, “NAACP: National Association for the Abortion of Colored People,” which notes the organization’s 44th Annual Image Awards. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/28/judge-sides-with-naacps-attempt-to-silence-black-pro-lifer/

Woman Who Wanted Abortion to Star on TV Show Rejects Abortion After Feeling Her Baby Kick
The aspiring glamor model in England who said she wants to get an abortion so she can star on a reality television program has rejected abortion and decided to keep her baby. Josie Cunningham, 24, is a mother of two but wanted to abort her third baby so she could appear on Big Brother.

“This time next year I won’t have a baby. I’ll be famous instead,” she said at the time. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/28/woman-who-wanted-abortion-to-star-on-tv-show-rejects-abortion-after-feeling-her-baby-kick/

Google Bans Ads From Pregnancy Centers After Lobbying From “Pro-Choice” NARAL
Google has banned ads from pro-life pregnancy centers that offer women and their unborn children abortion alternatives. The decision came after extensive lobbying from a national “pro-choice” group, NARAL, that appears to favor just one choice, abortion.

Upset that pregnancy centers were allowed to bid on the keyword “abortion clinics,” along with facilities that kill unborn children in abortions, NARAL launched a national campaign to complain to Google. Now, the national search engine company has banned the ads. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/28/google-bans-ads-from-pregnancy-centers-after-lobbying-from-pro-choice-naral/

MSNBC Panel Calls Pro-Life Republicans “White Supremacists”
On the Sunday, April 27, Melissa Harris-Perry show, during a discussion of new laws restricting abortion in Mississippi and Texas, guest Chloe Angyal of Feministing.com ridiculously saw “white supremacy” in Republican state legislators who had worked to reduce abortion, and asserted that these GOPers should be “ashamed of themselves.”

Marcus Mabry of The New York Times stated the legal question was “at what point will the Supreme Court say the state impediments to a woman’s ability to get an abortion actually represent illegal actions?” http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/28/msnbc-panel-calls-pro-life-republicans-working-to-stop-abortions-white-supremacists/

She Rejected Abortion After Rape, Then The Rapist Sought Custody of Her Daughter
In 31 states, rapists are allowed to seek custody of the children born as a result of their crime. Ten years ago, Shauna Prewitt was raped, and at that time many people in her life encouraged Shauna to abort her daughter, but she knew that was not the right choice for herself or for her child.

Having made the courageous decision to raise her daughter as a 21-year-old single mother, Shauna had her share of difficulties to surmount, and to add to insult to injury, her attacker sought custody of their daughter when she was born. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/28/she-rejected-abortion-after-rape-then-the-rapist-sought-custody-of-her-daughter/

Wife of Pro-Life Advocate Who Felt His Baby Kick Just Before He Was Murdered Gives Birth
Nathan Trapuzzano was a young 24-year-old man who served as a sidewalk counselor at a local abortion clinic in Indiana and had a baby on the way. Tragically, he was murdered in a shooting while out walking his neighborhood.

Eight months pregnant, Jennifer revealed she told Nathan, 24, that she wouldn’t be able to live without him. As they embraced, he laughed, hugged her, felt their baby kick and told her not to “be silly.” A short time later, while jogging outside of a store, he was mugged and shot and killed. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/28/wife-of-pro-life-advocate-who-felt-his-baby-kick-just-before-he-was-murdered-give-birth/

A mother wrapped her newborn baby boy in a bag and left him int he street to die because he looked like her ex-boyfriend. Ana Rosa Mora, 18 and from Chicago, is now facing murder charges related to the case of infanticide.

So, after she gave birth last weekend, she left the baby to die and the baby was found by a construction worker a few hours later. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/28/mother-killed-her-newborn-baby-because-he-looked-too-much-like-her-ex-boyfriend/
