Prayer Request for Father Richard John Neuhaus

The great Fr. Richard John Neuhaus has inspired so many over the years. CMR requests prayers for him as he's been diagnosed with cancer. Fr. Neuhaus wrote this personal note on "First Things" today:

I cannot begin to respond to the deluge of assurances of prayer and concern about my health. Please be assured that I am grateful and count mightily on being remembered by you before the Throne of Grace. Or, as Catholics are wont to say, on your storming the gates of heaven. The nature of the cancer is beginning to come into clearer focus, and I hope to have more details in short order. Meanwhile, I will, please God, continue to be as engaged as possible in the work of First Things and other apostolates, even as I am compelled by grace to know more deeply our solidarity within the Body of Christ.

“Despite attracting little support from colleagues, Scottish Parliament Member Margo McDonald is continuing to fight for a bill to legalize assisted suicide. McDonald’s bill is so broad that it would entitle children of 12 and younger to choose to kill themselves.”

Margo McDonald is one sick individual. Unbelievable. This is just plain demonic.

Terri’s case was intended (by the attorney) to be a precedent. His mission has succeeded. The living will form presented to my Dad at the hospital last week included nutrition as an extreme measure to artifically prolong life.

British Prime Minister: 'Helping someone to commit suicide is a matter of conscience', says Brown

Helping someone to commit suicide is a matter of conscience, the Prime Minister said today.

Gordon Brown condemned the idea of new laws to allow assisted suicide - but he did nothing to stop it in the wake of a landmark test case decision that paved the way for more deaths in the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland.

His response in the Commons to the outcry over the televised suicide of motor neurone disease sufferer Craig Ewert appealed instead for compassion for families agonising over the suffering of a loved one...

"And as a constitutional law professor, I knew better,”

Putting aside the fact that he was not a professor, but rather an assistant lecturer, I guess the constitutional law classes The Usurper took skipped over the preamble to the Declaration of Independence, which most graduates of private high schools know contains the reference to the self-evident right to LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

There are a pair of euthanasia editorials in the UK papers this weekend. The Daily Mirror seems to think that murder is an "act of love," while the Times correctly exposes how evil and dangerous the death industry really is.

Both thread by me.

It's criminal to outlaw this final act of love... (UK Pro-Euthanasia)

If you have ever watched a loved one die, then you know that in the end most lives are narrowed down to a place of unrelenting suffering.

Terminal illness can be fought for so long, but in the end there is pain, grief, distress - and not much else.

Death can be a relief because it brings a release from all that torment. I would guess that anyone who has ever seen a loved one enduring the final days and weeks of their life will have watched Sky TV's Right To Die? with nothing but sympathy for Craig and Mary Ewert.

Viewers saw Craig, desperately sick with motor neurone disease, sipping a fatal dose of tranquillisers in a Swiss clinic as Mary sat by his side, saying goodbye...

____________________________________________________________

The ‘right to die’ is a fashionable nonsense

It is traditional, when mounting a coup, to seize control of the airwaves. Last week the supporters of euthanasia did their best. Monday’s Panorama was entirely given over to a “report” on this topic by the Lothians MSP, Margo MacDonald; but since Ms MacDonald has already launched a campaign to legalise “assisted suicide” north of the border, the BBC’s attempt to promote her as an impartial reporter was disingenuous, at best.

Two days later, Sky broadcast Right to Die, a 90-minute documentary that told the story of Craig Ewert, a 59-year-old Yorkshire-based American, who had travelled to the Dignitas clinic in Zurich to be humanely put down. As advertised, we were not spared the moment of Mr Ewert’s death.

The very phrase “right to die” is a fashionable piece of nonsense. How can we be said to require a “right” to something that is absolutely unavoidable, whether we want it or not? It is not the “right to die” that campaigners such as Margo MacDonald want, but the right to be killed – at a time of their own choosing. This is why some doctors, less sensitive to public queasiness, refer to the practice of “assisted dying” as “therapeutic killing”...

"We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will give you no rest."

A wonderful commentary on how Eduardo Verastegui and Bella keep saving lives.

Thread by me.

Bella Babies: Lives Saved

When Christian actor Eduardo Verastegui devoted his career to serving God, he had no idea what might come out of his decision. He certainly couldn’t have imagined that his widely acclaimed movie Bella would literally save lives and souls. But that’s the story that author Tim Drake tells so well in his book Behind Bella.

As the book shows, God’s hand was on Eduardo and on the making of the movie from the very beginning. To prepare for his role in Bella, Eduardo wanted to find a real-life Nina—the co-lead in the film struggling with her unwanted pregnancy. So Eduardo paid a visit to a local abortion clinic.

Outside the clinic, a Mexican couple who had come to have an abortion recognized Eduardo from his acting days in Mexico. They approached him, and soon Eduardo found himself counseling them against having an abortion and telling them about the story of Bella. They talked for over an hour and on the phone in the days ahead.

A few months later, Eduardo received a phone call from the young man. He explained that his girlfriend had just given birth to the baby—a boy—and he asked for permission to name him Eduardo...

Remember the photo on drudge and everywhere? A noble but sad looking Obama, gazing into the distance, a single tear running down his cheek.

I commented to a friend what an obvious ploy it was to generate sympathy, and he said, “Well, why wouldn’t he cry more then?” I said, “This is exactly right, he looks more manly this way, deeply saddened, but in control.” My friend agreed.

Whoever said Madison Avenue here, exactly right.

What Pro-Life Majority?

Think of the 2008 election as Katrina for the pro-life movement. What do you do after a disaster? You see what the damage is, and what your assets are. You marshal your assets to try to rebuild. The Register has listed “we still have a pro-life majority” as a major asset. This prompted readers to ask, “What pro-life majority?” Susan Wills spells out the polling data on abortion, and explains how pro-abortion folks manipulate it in last year’s “The Slippery Art of Abortion Polling.” “Here’s how we know that Roe is not supported by 66% of Americans,” she writes. “Polls with carefully-worded, neutral questions about allowing abortion in identified circumstances show minority and waning support for the policy of Roe. These are better measures of public opinion on whether abortion law should change. An April 2005 poll by the Polling Company inc., offering respondents six choices, found only 10% support for what Roe actually does.” “Similarly, an April 2004 poll by Zogby showed 56% of Americans taking a strongly pro-life position (18% never legal; 15% legal for mother’s life only; 23% legal only for mother’s life/rape/incest). Younger Americans were even more pro-life than older Americans: among 18-29-year-olds, 60% took a pro-life position, including 26% who said ‘never legal.’” See more context in the article. We see hope in those numbers — but only if we work confidently to deepen and broaden our majority. We aren’t a desperate, dying movement. We are a movement that has been winning hearts and minds. There’s no reason to stop now. — Tom Hoopes See the Hope for America Series: 1. The Pro-Life Majority 2. The Marriage Majority 3.

March for Life Soldiers On Despite Pro-Abortion Barack Obama's Inauguration

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- With the inauguration of incoming pro-abortion president Barack Obama, some pro-life advocates have been concerned that next year's March for Life will be canceled. However, that's not the case and the organizers of the March are moving full speed ahead with plans for a large event.

The pro-life movement worked overtime to oppose Obama during the presidential campaign and, with his election, pro-life advocates hope a strong March for Life will send the new president a signal that they don't want him promoting unlimited abortions.

This year's March will take place on January 22 -- on what will be the thirty-sixth anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that allowed abortions for any reason throughout pregnancy.

In addition to concerns about the March due to the inaugural, some pro-life advocates have wondered whether the March for Life is taking place because they haven't received significant information about it.

March for Life organizers had computer problems that have limited their ability to get timely information to pro-life groups nationwide as they normally do months in advance.

But Nellie Gray says she is working hard to turn out the largest pro-life contingent possible.

"We are looking forward to having huge crowds in our nation's capitol to give voice to the unborn through two days of pro-life activity immediately following the presidential inauguration," she said in an email LifeNews.com received.

Because of the high demand for hotel rooms in association with the inauguration, Gray urges pro-life advocates to make plans now to obtain hotel accommodations or housing in the area.

With Obama becoming president on a Tuesday, the expectation is that the March will come either one or two days after he signs an executive order rescinding the Mexico City Policy...

Abuse Pattern Develops as Second Indiana Planned Parenthood Covers Up Statutory Rape of 13-Year-Old

Undercover footage from a second Indiana Planned Parenthood clinic shows an emerging pattern of abuse, as more clinic counselors evade their legal responsibility to report the statutory rape of young girls. The new footage is the second video in Live Action Film's "Mona Lisa Project," a series of investigations documenting how secret abortions keep young girls trapped in cycles of sexual abuse.

In the video, shot undercover this summer at a Planned Parenthood in Indianapolis, two employees state they "don't care" about the age difference between a 31-year-old man and the 13-year-old girl he was reported to have impregnated. A previously released video shot at a Bloomington Planned Parenthood showed similar results. Neither the Bloomington nor Indianapolis clinics reported the rape and both clinics counseled the 13-year-old to obtain a secret abortion across state lines where no parental consent laws applied...

"Take the Pledge" Campaign Calls for Loyalty to Patient Health rather than Assisted Suicide

December 16, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Anti-euthanasia groups in Canada and Oregon are calling physicians, caregivers, and concerned citizens across the world to "Take the Pledge" to pursue genuine care for even the most dependent patients, and never to consent to assisted suicide.

Take-the-pledge.com, created by The Physicians for Compassionate Care in Oregon and the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, provides links to several anti-assisted suicide groups and invites caregivers and other visitors to make a pledge that reaffirms the duty to “do no harm.”

It is “Illegal” to Stop Food and Hydration of Vulnerable Patients: Top Italian Minister

ROME, December 17, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A high-level minister in the Italian government has called “illegal” the proposal to starve and dehydrate to death vulnerable patients in the care of the country’s nationalised health service. The news comes within hours of Italian media confirming that Eluana Englaro, known as Italy’s Terri Schiavo, was to be moved this week to a clinic that is willing to participate in her killing by removing her feeding and hydration tube.

Maurizio Sacconi, Italy’s Minister of Labour, Health and Social Policies, told a press conference that it is “illegal” for health care facilities funded by the government to remove the food and hydration of vulnerable patients with the intention of killing them. He referred to Article 25 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities that says to stop feeding and hydration is discrimination against disabled people.

Last month, Italy’s highest appeals court, the Court of Cassation, ruled that 38 year old Eluana, who has been in a condition of diminished consciousness since an auto accident in 1992, could be killed by the removal of her food and hydration, a move that has been condemned by Church officials in this strongly Catholic country as tantamount to murder. Although media has consistently referred to Eluana as being attached to a “life support system,” she is physically healthy and not dependent on a ventilator and only requires assisted feeding and ordinary nursing care...

Pro-Life Rick Warren to Give Invocation at Obama Inauguration

Pro-life pastor Rick Warren will give the invocation at President-Elect Barack Obama’s inauguration. It makes a whole lot of sense. Even though Warren and Obama disagree on the life issue, they do see eye to eye on many social justice issues. This move is also classic Obama because it is a signal to religious conservatives that he’s willing to bring in both sides to the faith discussion in this country. Obama has never shied away from that...

A wonderful Christmas message from the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Abp. of Canterbury: "We Cannot Regard Unborn Children as Less Than Members Of The Human Family"

LONDON, December 17, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a Christmas greeting sent Monday to the 70-million strong Anglican Communion, the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams included a decidedly pro-life message. While his ambivalence on homosexuality has contributed to the near-collapse of the Communion, Williams' pro-life stance was welcomed at his installation as head of the Anglican Communion.

"God chose to show himself to us in a complete human life, telling us that every stage in human existence, from conception to maturity and even death, was in principle capable of telling us something about God," reads the 2008 Christmas message...

Father God, we pray you will confound the enemy
and keep this dear woman safe from harm.

Put a hedge of protection around her and make it impossible
for those trying to kill her to carry out their evil plans.

We praise you and thank you for her caregivers who see the
infinite value of Eluana as we know you do.

Jesus be with her !!

South Korean Physicians Refuse to Pull Life Support from Disabled Woman, Appeal to Supreme Court

SEOUL, S. Korea, December 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Doctors at Severance Hospital in Sinchon-dong are refusing to carry out the sentence of the Western District Court ordering doctors to remove life support, including feeding tubes, from a comatose woman. The physicians are appealing the ruling to S. Korea's Supreme Court.

AsiaNews reports that the administration of Severance Hospital said that it would wait until December 17, the deadline established by the District Court for carrying out the euthanasia, before taking any action, and has now rejected the court's decision.

"This is a question concerning life, and requires the highest degree of prudence," said hospital director Park Chang-Il.

LifeSiteNews reported earlier this month on the case, which centers on 75-year-old Kim Ok-kyung, who fell into what was reported as both a "coma" and a "persistent vegetative state" in February while undergoing a lung examination.

The patient’s family filed a court request in May asking the hospital to take the woman off life-support, claiming that extending Kim's life using medical devices would prolong her "painful and meaningless" existence. The Seoul Western District court accepted the request to halt treatment, ordering the removal of feeding and ventilator tubes.

Anti-euthanasia groups are condemning the decision by the District Court, which requires the suspension of both feeding and artificial ventilation...

This is so offensive to the dignity of the human person!

Instead of attempting to cure the cause of people's ills, some are attempting to nullify the inconvenience these people cause to the rest of society:

Folks at downtown's Ronstadt Transit Center on Tuesday afternoon had a way to make a quick $300.

The only stipulation was that the people be drug addicts or alcoholics who agree to long-term birth control.

Australian "Experts" Want to Target Down Babies for Eugenic Abortion

December 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Can you imagine if "the experts" suggested that genetic tests be done on all pregnant women to screen for supposedly undesirable racial characteristics or a propensity for homosexuality (if that could be done), with the goal of vastly reducing the number of babies born with those traits? There would a clarion outcry.

Well, that is precisely what is happening in Australia, only the targets are unborn babies with Down syndrome, people that "the experts" want very much to cull from society by preventing most from ever being born. From the story:

“Australia urgently needs a national screening policy for Down syndrome, experts say, after international research showed it could halve the number of babies born with the incurable genetic condition. Access to the four tests that help detect if a foetus has Down syndrome varies widely ... leading to stark differences in birth and termination rates...

“Euan Wallace, professor of obstetrics at Monash University, said: ‘In Australia in 2008 every single woman should be offered and have access to state-of-the-art screening tests irrespective of age.’... Professor Wallace said NSW Health's age-based policy is ‘15 years out of date and not good public health policy.’”

This is rank eugenics. Germans in the 1930s called it racial hygiene. Not long ago, it was considered the worst sort of bigotry. Not today, apparently because "the experts" tell us so...

Pope Decries Euthanasia as Evil as Luxembourg Parliament Advances with Assisted Suicide Legalization

ROME, December 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Pope Benedict XVI yesterday expressed his "deepest concern" as Luxembourg draws near to adopting assisted suicide into law, which the Pope roundly condemned as contrary to true compassion.

“Political leaders, whose duty is to serve the good of man, as well as doctors and families should remember that 'the deliberate decision to deprive an innocent human being of his life is always evil from the moral point of view and can never be lawful,'" said the Pope, quoting the encyclical Evangelium Vitae. Benedict issued his remarks as he received the new ambassador to the Holy See from Luxembourg, Paul Duhr...
