Why no outrage at the Person responsible for having Obama come to Georgetown, AND covering up the Holy Name of Christ?! I do not understand.

I just happened to tune into EWTN and caught the end of the daily mass there...Hey! The priest who gave the homily was RIGHTEOUS! WOW! Did anyone else catch it? He had a sermon about how our nation is turning into a force against good, and that he imagines that soon he will not be able to speak freely from the pulpit. He called on Catholics to be ready to be martyrs! I have never heard a catholic sermon like it!

Santo Domingo Cardinal Calls Abortionists "Butchers" and "Merchants"

SANTO DOMINGO, April 17, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Cardinal Archbishop of Santo Domingo condemned pro-abortion legislators and doctors for being "butchers and merchants of life" in his Easter homily last Sunday as a battle heats up over a new constitutional provision to protect the right to life from fertilization.

"We know that there are butcher doctors, there are legislators who like to trade in life, there are people who have authority who make a living from that," said Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez, adding that "we will be upfront, always upfront, clashing."

"We are here to tell you, 'yes to life, no to death,' definitely," he said, and added that abortion is a "crime," that it "exploits women" and that it is "terrorism."

Paramedics told: 'Let accident victims die if they want to' in new row over patient rights (UK)

Health Service paramedics have been told not to resuscitate terminally-ill patients who register on a controversial new database to say they want to die.

It has been set up by the ambulance service in London for hundreds of people who have only a few months to live so that they may register their 'death wishes' in advance.

It is believed to be the first in the country, but other trusts around the country are expected to follow suit to comply with Government guidelines which state that patients' wishes should be taken into account, even at the point of death. . .

Foolproofing Suicide with Euthanasia Test Kits

When someone with a terminal illness decides to end their life by overdosing on barbiturates, they hope the drugs will lull them into a peaceful and permanent sleep. But if the drugs have passed their expiration date or lack a sufficiently lethal concentration, the would-be suicide victim may actually survive - risking an array of complications including coma, reduced physical functioning and the opprobrium of disapproving friends and family. Now, in an effort to provide certainty to those contemplating suicide, one of the world's leading euthanasia advocates plans to sell barbiturate testing kits to confirm that deadly drug cocktails are, in fact, deadly. . .

Nigeria Resurrection of Maggie Sanger (Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood)

Lagos — On March 27, 2009 in Houston, Texas, United States, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, founded by eugenicist Ms. Margaret Louise Sanger, bestowed the Margaret Sanger award on Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton, American Secretary of State, for her untiring efforts in spreading Sanger's teaching in the world. Gleefully receiving the award, Mrs. Clinton hailed Margaret Sanger as a role model. She praised her for purportedly providing "women and girls everywhere the opportunities" they deserve to fulfill their potentials as mothers, as workers and, as human beings. She said that the work of Margaret Sanger's in the United States and "certainly across our globe is not done". Mrs. Clinton laments that women, especially women in developing countries, are denied access to abortion clinics, contraceptives, "reproductive rights services" and other "family planning options". She argues that the skyrocketing maternal and infant mortality rates in the world, especially in developing countries, stem from denial of women access to abortion clinics, contraceptives and other reproductive rights. She says that her office has devised ways to liberate women from the clutches of economic and political strangulation by ensuring that they have unimpeded access to abortion, contraceptives and other family planning services which improve the quality of life of women. . .

"Fr. Jenkins Will Probably Lose His Job": Nine More Bishops Make 42 against ND Scandal

NOTRE DAME, Indiana, April 20, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Nine more bishops have publicly acknowledged their disapproval of the University of Notre Dame's invitation to President Obama to speak and receive an honorary law degree at the school's commencement exercises May 17. 

Bishop Paul Coakley of the diocese of Salina, KS, told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) today that he has written a personal letter to Father Jenkins expressing his "deep disappointment" at the invitation. 

Citing his grave concern over the President's support for anti-life policies, Bishop Coakley told LSN that he reminded University president Fr. John Jenkins of the USCCB directive that forbids Catholic schools from honoring those whose positions contradict the teachings of the Church. 

"The University's invitation undermines the Catholic identity and mission of the institution," said Coakley.

When LSN requested comment on the Obama invitation from Bishop Robert Vasa of Baker, OR, the bishop responded simply: "This is just one more sign of the failure of Catholic Institutions to stand up for and support a higher ethical standard."  

The Orlando Diocese, where Thomas G. Wenski is bishop, has announced a Mass of reparation for "the many shortcomings and transgressions committed against the dignity and sacredness of human life in our world," specifically for Notre Dame's decision to honor pro-abortion President Obama at commencement.  The Mass is taking place at the Cathedral of St. James on May 3, 2009.
 
In a column on the Orlando Diocese website, Bishop Wenski writes, "Notre-Dame (at least in its Administration and Board) has forgotten what it means to be Catholic."
 
"Last year, in Washington, D.C., Pope Benedict XVI addressed Catholic educators, including university presidents," wrote the bishop.  "He said 'to justify positions that contradict the faith and teaching of the Church would obstruct or even betray the university's identity and mission.'

"Father Jenkins, Notre-Dame's president, must have nodded off during the Pope's speech," he concluded.
 
Archdiocese of Cincinnati spokesman Dan Andriacco has confirmed to CNS that Archbishop Daniel E. Pilarczyk "supports the strong comments of Bishop D'Arcy of South Bend, in whose diocese Notre Dame is located."  Archbishop D'Arcy, who is boycotting Notre Dame's commencement, has said that Notre Dame must ask itself whether by this decision it has chosen prestige over truth.
 
Mr. Andriacco also said the archbishop stands by the editorial 'Prestige over Truth', appearing in The Catholic Telegraph, on April 3, which is critical of Notre Dame's decision to honor Obama.

On Saturday, Bishop Robert Finn of the diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Mo., addressed the scandal in the course of his keynote address for the 2009 Gospel of Life Convention at St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

"It doesn't take another Bishops' Conference statement to know this is wrong: scandalous, discouraging and confusing to many Catholics," said Finn of the Obama invitation. "God knows what all motivates such a decision.

"I suspect that, since Notre Dame will need a scapegoat for this debacle, and Fr. Jenkins will probably lose his job, at this point perhaps he ought to determine to lose it for doing something right instead of something wrong."

. . .

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

Steele denounces Roe at pro-life gathering

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele, the most controversial Republican national chairman in recent memory, and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the biggest star in the party's political firmament, shared the spotlight on Thursday at a pro-life dinner attended by about 3,000 persons in Evansville, Ind.

The speech at the Right to Life dinner was a key test of his pro-life credentials for those in the party who doubt Mr. Steele's big tent explanations for why he helped found a prominent pro-choice GOP organization and joined another.

snip--

But Mr. Steele, the keynote speaker for the Evansville Right to Life annual event, repeated his often-stated opposition to abortion, called for Roe vs. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that made abortion a constitutional right, "a travesty of legal reasoning"

snip--

"I am proud to join you in saying that I am pro-life, always have been, and always will be," he told the audience . . .

Planned Parenthood Fails to Promote Abortion at Recent Summit of the Americas

Port of Spain, Trinidad (LifeNews.com) -- International pro-abortion advocates from Planned Parenthood appear to have been unable to promote abortion at the recent Summit of the Americas meeting. Leading pro-life advocates were concerned they would team up with Obama officials to promote abortion using coded phrases.

Marie Smith, the director of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues, previously told LifeNews.com that International Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations might insert pro-abortion language into the Summit's Declaration of Commitment.

Abortion advocates regularly work to get phrases like "reproductive health" and "reproductive rights" into UN and international documents and then later construe those terms as including abortion. . .

Prayer for Those Who Are Terminally Ill

 
Lord Jesus, you healed so many people during your public ministry. I bring before you now, in prayer, all those who are terminally ill -- those afflicted with cancer, AIDS, and other illnesses.
 
Look lovingly and compassionately upon them. Let them feel the strength of your consolation. Help them and their families to accept this cross they are asked to carry.  Protect them from euthanasia, Lord.
 
Let them see you carrying their cross with them, at their side, as you once carried yours to Calvary. May Mary be there, too, to comfort them. 
 
Lord Jesus, I know and believe that, if it is your will, you can cure those I pray for (especially N.). I place my trust in you. I pray with faith, but I also pray as you did in Gethsemane: your will be done. 
 
Bless us, Lord, and hear my prayer. Amen.

Well, I know I am outraged!

I want to tell you again, about the Homily by Fr. Dominic Mary. I only was able to catch the last bit. But, would really like to hear the whole thing. I have looked for it, a great deal of this day, but decided to transcribe what I did have recorded on my TiVo.

Here, I will share it with you. I think it is powerful.

Homily by Fr. Dominic Mary
(coming in the middle of the homily)............”In this way, democracy, contradicting it’s own principles, effectively moves towards a form of totalitarianism. And the reason we bring this up today, is because our government, in the United States of America, IS becoming, if it is not already, a government a state, that is totalitarianism in nature. That is where we are at. Pretty soon I will not have the right to say what I am saying today, without being put in jail. It IS coming to that. The congress is looking at it is right now, this spring. The state is no longer the common home, where all can live together on the basis of principles of fundamental equality, but is transformed into a tyrant state, which takes to itself the right to dispose of the life of the weakest, and most defenseless members; from the unborn child to the elderly, in the name of a “public interest”, which is really nothing but the interest of ONE part of the country. And so, when people get up, and they speak out about this, they are going to be in the way, and they are going to have to be eliminated. That is where we are headed. Where the current administration is going.

Really, what we have here, is only the tragic caricature of legality. The democratic ideal, (which is only truly such, when it acknowledges and safeguards the dignity of every human person) is betrayed at it’s very foundations. How is it still possible to speak of the dignity of every human person, when the killing of the weakest and the most innocent is permitted?! It’s absolutely STUPID to say that we have to defend the rights and the dignity of each person in this country, when we can KILL the little and defenseless! It absolutely makes no sense! It is unreasonable.

When this happens, the process leading to the breakdown of a genuinely human coexistence, and the disintegration of the state itself, has already begun. The disintegration of our democracy has begun...long ago, it is well on it’s way to losing itself completely. Eventually, we will end up in anarchy, if things are not brought under control.

Now, do I say all of this to scare anybody? Or to drive home some fear-mongering mentality? No! Absolutely not. But, we have to stand up and say the truth, and defend the truth, and have a holy boldness. The church has always done that, and she will continue to do that, even at the risk of martyrdom.

And so, as today’s Psalm says, “My strength and my courage is the Lord.”

Even though it may be difficult, if we are faithful to Christ, we will one day hear the joyful shout of victory in the ‘tents of the just’.

May God give us holy boldness, and give our leaders, give our Bishops, the courage to stand up and to speak the truth and even to give their very lives if that is necessary.”

ND President Jenkins: "We Are Tremendously Proud" to Honor Obama at Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Indiana, April 21, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - University of Notre Dame president Fr. John Jenkins heaped fuel on the fire yesterday by gushing that President Obama's highly controversial platform at the school's commencement would be a "tremendous event" for Notre Dame.

"We are very proud and honored to welcome the first African-American President of the United States in a few weeks as our commencement speaker," said Fr. Jenkins at a town hall meeting celebrating 60 years of black student-athletes at Notre Dame, according to the South Bend Tribune. Obama will also be receiving an honorary law degree from the school during the May 17 commencement exercises. . .

ND Prez's Religious Superior Responds to Scandal, Criticizes Pro-Lifers for Condemning Obama

SOUTH BEND, Indiana, April 22, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - LifeSiteNews.com has obtained an email written by Fr. Peter Jarrett of the Congregation of the Holy Cross, in response to a concerned Catholic regarding the school's decision to invite President Obama to give the commencement speech and receive an honorary degree May 17. Fr. Jarrett is the religious superior of University of Notre Dame President and Holy Cross priest Fr. John Jenkins.

In the email, Fr. Jarrett emphasizes the event as an opportunity to "engage and possibly dialogue" with Obama on life issues. Jarrett also criticizes pro-life Catholics' negative reaction, saying that aiming "anger, hate, and vitriol" at the "wildly popular" president would only damage the pro-life movement. . .

Notre Dame's Bishop Rebukes Jenkins' Defense of Obama Honor

SOUTH BEND, Indiana, April 22, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Bishop John D'Arcy of Fort Wayne-South Bend, whose diocese includes the University of Notre Dame, has issued a letter refuting University president Fr. John Jenkins' justification of honoring Obama at this year's commencement exercises.

A letter to the school's board of trustees from Fr. Jenkins was obtained exclusively and published by LifeSiteNews.com earlier this month. In the letter the president attempted to justify the school's plan, in light of a statement from the USCCB against honoring pro-abortion politicians, to give a platform and an honorary law degree to President Obama on May 17. . .

Polish Cardinal, Former Secretary to Pope JPII: Politicians, Like Pilate, Kill the Truth-Unborn

KRAKOW, Poland, April 21, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - During his Good Friday homily at Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, a Marian pilgrimage site near Krakow and home to a live dramatization of the Passion of Christ, Archbishop of Krakow Stanisaw Cardinal Dziwisz called on the over 150,000 faithful present to show courage and speak the truth in defense of the dignity of human life.

The Cardinal condemned abortion, euthanasia, common-law marriage, homosexual unions and in vitro fertilization.

Speaking to the thousands gathered for the Good Friday service around the Kalwaria Zebrzydowska monastery, Cardinal Dziwisz said that the attitude of Pilate, who knew the truth, but still condemned an innocent man, is still present in the political and social life of Poland. . .

"We are at War!": Bishop Finn Delivers Rousing Clarion Call to the "Fight for Life" in America

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas, April 21, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Bishop Robert Finn of the diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph issued a powerful call to action to pro-lifers at the 2009 Gospel of Life Convention on Saturday. In his speech, Finn heavily criticized pro-abortion Catholic politicians who claim a "personal opposition" to abortion, stating that such persons are "warriors of death" who "have abandoned their place in the citizenship of the Church."

"As I speak a word of encouragement today I also want to tell you soberly, dear friends, 'We are at war!'" began Finn, who said that today's issues bring "an intensity and urgency to our efforts that may rival any time in the past."

The bishop warned that an empty version of the rhetoric of "tolerance" can come from people of all backgrounds, including Christians and Catholics: "The 'battle between believers,' who claim a certain 'common ground' with us, while at the same time, they attack the most fundamental tenets of the Church's teachings, or disavow the natural law - this opposition is one of the most discouraging, confusing, and dangerous," he said.

"Occasionally we still hear an elected official speak of his or her personal opposition to abortion, while they support the legal right to an abortion," he continued.

"We should be very clear: Such a person places him or herself completely OUTSIDE the moral framework, the moral imperative of Evangelium Vitae and other Church teaching on these issues. ... They have abandoned their place in the citizenship of the Church. Quite simply they have become warriors for death rather than life. . .

[Sebelius] Health [HHS] Nominee Veto Sickening

Statement by Mary Kay Culp, Executive Director, Kansans for Life: 913-406-4446

HEALTH NOMINEE VETO SICKENING

If this confirmation goes forward, George Tiller will have a friend, not only in the highest office in Kansas as he likes to brag, but heading the highest health office in the land, and knowing what we know, we think that ought to make every American sick.

Governor Sebelius, like her friend Napolitano, is extremely liberal, but especially so on late-term abortion, end of life issues and cloning. . .

Sebelius Veto Spurs Mounting Opposition

WASHINGTON, April 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- In response to last night's veto of Kansas Senate Bill 218, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser called upon Senators to oppose vigorously her Secretary of Health and Human Services nomination:

"If there was any doubt about how a pro-life Senator ought to vote on the Sebelius nomination, there should be no doubt now," said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. "Sebelius should be opposed for many reasons, but primarily because her concern for abortion providers trumps her duty to protect women. Sebelius' eleventh hour veto of Kansas Senate Bill 218 should provide Senators on the fence the crucial information they need to know before voting. Governor Sebelius veto of this woman-centered legislation goes a long way toward protecting abortion providers like George Tiller, but does nothing to support women when they need it most."

The Susan B. Anthony List spearheaded a coalition letter to RNC Chairman Michael Steele, signed by 33 pro-life organizational and opinion leaders, asking him to oppose the Sebelius nomination. Susan B. Anthony List activists have sent over 42,000 letters of opposition to their Senators. . .

Plan B is also available to 17 year old BOYS, but this doesn't seem to bother the left either.

Thread by tcg.

‘Plan B’ for 17 year old girls: Equipping Children to Kill Children?

Medical evidence disputes the claim that this pill is always “contraceptive” in preventing fertilization. Even the FDA’s own Question and Answers admitted this with these words: “Plan B works like other birth control pills to prevent pregnancy. Plan B acts primarily by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation). It may prevent the union of sperm and egg (fertilization). If fertilization does occur, Plan B may prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the womb (implantation).”

More accurate was the Pontifical Academy for Life’s Statement released on October 31, 2000: “The morning-after pill is a hormone-based preparation … which, within and no later than 72 hours after a presumably fertile act of sexual intercourse, has a predominantly "anti-implantation" function, i.e., it prevents a possible fertilized ovum (which is a human embryo), by now in the blastocyst stage of its development (fifth to sixth day after fertilization), from being implanted in the uterine wall by a process of altering the wall itself. The final result will thus be the expulsion and loss of this embryo."

Whether you listen to the Church or to the State, you get to the same place - “Plan B” can result in the taking of human life when it makes implantation of a newly fertilized oocyte impossible. This new human life, seeking shelter and nourishment in the first home of the whole human race finds that there is no room. “Plan B” renders this new human life homeless by subverting “Plan A” which is to welcome her/him into the mothers womb, the first home. “Plan B” becomes a direct chemical attack on a unique human life seeking refuge, a chemical landlord refusing shelter to the newest member of the human family. . .

A chilling reminder of how many WILL NOT be graduating this year from our dear friend Father Frank Pavone.

Graduation Day -- A Time to Honor the Missing Says Fr. Pavone

STATEN ISLAND, NY, April 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged graduating students to remember those who, because of abortion, are not participating in ceremonies with them.

"This graduation season, Notre Dame University has chosen to honor a man who couldn't care less about protecting the unborn," said Fr. Pavone. "I urge young men and women receiving their degrees this year to take a different path and honor those who, but for abortion, would have been with them at graduation."

Past graduating classes have remembered the aborted in yearbooks and at commencement exercises through speeches, prayers, or just by leaving an empty chair draped with a cap and gown.

"Over 1 million students again will be missing from ceremonies," added Fr. Pavone. "Let's acknowledge those who could not celebrate with us, and let's work to let others live."

Australia is the LEAST DENSELY POPULATED major nation in the world (there are 3 people per square kilometer, the US has 31 per square kilometer), and now the Malthusian-Darwinists are pushing for negative population growth.

Thread by me.

Institute One Child Policy for a "Sustainable" Australia : Population Control Group

CANBERRA, April 24, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A population control pressure group has issued a call for the Australian government to institute a one-child policy to ensure the continent's environmental and economic "sustainability." Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) said this week that Australia's 22 million people must be reduced to 7 million and that restricting each couple to one baby, as China does, is "one way of assisting to reduce the population" and avoiding "environmental suicide."

Speaking on the eve of Earth Day, the group's national president, Sandra Kanck, a former Democrat politician, said a one-child policy is "something we need to throw into the mix."

Population increase, she said, means, "more cars on the road, more coal-fired electricity generated. It entails more houses and other consumer products. It uses more cement, energy and water which all results in more greenhouse gas emissions."

"Increasing the population is basically suicide, it's environmental suicide, it's utterly irresponsible," Kanck said. "We are eating away at the planet, we are eating into all the resources, be it petrol, be it superphosphate, be it clear air."

SPA was founded in Canberra in 1988, and calls for the reduction of the human population to what it believes is a more environmentally manageable size. Ms. Kanck, who has one child herself, also called for the abolition of the government baby bonus for all children in a family after a couple's first.

Stephen Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute, responded to the proposal, saying that to suggest that Australia is overpopulated stretches the imagination. He told LifeSiteNews.com by email, "With only 22 million people scattered across nearly 3 million square miles of land, the dominant carnivore in many parts of the country is not man, but the dingo."

"The Radical Environmentalists in Australia, as everywhere else, think of people as a pestilence. They are determined to reduce their number, even if this means adopting China's one-child policy, with its forced restrictions on birth. And even if this means destroying the economy, and condemning the elderly to a hand-to-mouth existence as the pension funds go belly up."

This will NOT even be considered in Australia, where they actually pay a “bonus” of about $3000 per child, for women to have babies! They believe that if they don’t start HAVING more people, they will be unable to sustain the nation.

What rubbish. Some people are so ignorant.

Vote protects unborn beginning at conception

The Dominican Republic Lawmakers working on a new constitution for the Dominican Republic have voted overwhelmingly to protect life, specifying in the document that "the right to life is inviolable from conception until death."

The vote yesterday was 167-32 in the national legislature, which was responding to pressure from international pro-abortion groups seeking to expand their business operations into the Caribbean island nation.

"A true respect for human life is protecting it from the beginning, the Dominican Republic is ahead of America in building a society where all human life is truly respected," said Ignacio Reyes, director of Live Action San Jose. . .

The lengths that the abortionist will go to grows ever more disgusting.

Thread by me.

Abortion Industry Seeks to Discredit Adoption

The Washington Times (WT) wrote a fascinating two-part story on the status of adoption in the United States. Today we take a look at part 1. The series begins by looking at the falling number of infant adoptions. In fact, according to the WT, only one percent of all pregnancies out of marriage lead to an adoption. Meanwhile, a new report shows that there are 10 million American couples looking to adopt. Why the discrepancy?

One reason is abortion. Since 1973, the percentage of unwed pregnant women who seek abortion has skyrocketed to 35 percent. We live in a culture now that encourages women to "get rid" of their problems and seek "quick" solutions. For the millions of post-abortive women, however, these lies have painful, unforeseen consequences. Instead of feeling "relief" like the abortion industry would have them think, many women are still suffering from guilt, depression and trauma decades after an abortion.

But the abortion industry continues to lie, not only about the traumatic experience of abortion, but about adoption as well. The WT spoke with several anti-adoption activists who had this to say:

"No one wants to be an adoptee. No mother who has lost a child [to adoption] fully recovers."

"The adoption system is now virtually a North American phenomena - most other countries realize how barbaric it is toward mothers and children."

 "[Adoption] is an industry [in which] young, unwed (and thus powerless) parents are persuaded, through force,     coercion or outright lies, to transfer parental rights of their children to older, more affluent couples."

This is an incredible commentary about the similarities between the euthanasia movement of today and the abortion movement of fifty years ago.

Thread by me.

Death Doctors: Like abortion 50 years ago, euthanasia now is poised at the top of a slippery slope

‘Foolproofing Suicide with Euthanasia Test Kits.” The matter-of-fact headline should chill us, especially since it didn’t appear in some fringe publication or advocacy magazine.

It appeared in Time.

“When someone with a terminal illness decides to end his or her life by overdosing on barbiturates, they may hope the drugs will lull them into a peaceful and permanent sleep,” wrote the Time reporter. But if the drugs have expired, or if the dosage is incorrect, “the would-be suicide victim may actually survive,” although possibly with additional complications or in a coma.

Thank heavens (yes, that is sarcasm), an Australian euthanasia advocate, Dr. Philip Nitschke, has come up with a way to avoid that danger. He plans “to sell barbiturate-testing kits to confirm that deadly drug cocktails are, in fact, deadly.” The kits will debut in
Britain
in May for $50. . .

The BBC is upset that Britons are being denied the right to practice Nazi-style eugenics.

Thread by me.

Parents 'refused genetic tests' (BBC upset about lack of eugenics in the UK)

Children are being born with severe genetic abnormalities because their parents are being refused funding to screen their embryos, those working in the field have claimed.

Fairer provision of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) - in which embryos can be screened for a particular abnormality - could also mean fewer abortions when problems are picked up further down the line, experts from the Assisted Conception Unit at Guy's Hospital say.

The new, fully integrated IVF and PGD centre in London opens on Thursday and will serve couples from across the UK who want to ensure their baby does not carry a potentially life-threatening inherited condition - from cystic fibrosis to some forms of early onset cancer. . .

Abortion foes' lurid display irks neighbors

City officials and frustrated neighbors are trying to figure out whether a group of abortion opponents is violating Bellevue's new picketing ordinance with its "truth truck."

The truck displays huge, graphic photos of aborted fetuses, and protesters have been repeatedly driving it through the neighborhood of a woman who works at an abortion clinic.

Many residents of the Nob Hill neighborhood near Virginia Avenue and North Fourth Street are fed up with the truck. One lay down in front of the truck this week to prevent it from re-entering the street in front of their houses. He later was arrested.

Larry Donlan, director of Rescue the Heartland, which opposes abortion, said Bellevue residents should expect to see him and other protesters more this spring and summer. The group plans to protest in the neighborhood a couple of times a month for at least an hour. . .

Things continue to get more interested at Notre Dame.

A former Ambassador to the Vatican, Mary Ann Glendon, is refusing an award because of Zero and the thirty pieces of silver that Jenkins sold his soul for won't come close to making up for the over $8 MILLION in donations that have been pulled.

Two threads by topher.

BREAKING: Mary Ann Glendon Refuses Notre Dame Honor over Obama

NOTRE DAME, Indiana, April 27, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Mary Ann Glendon, the former United States ambassador to the Vatican who was set to receive the University of Notre Dame's Laetare Medal at the school's commencement on May 17, has written to University president Fr. John Jenkins saying that she will not attend the ceremony or accept the award after all.

Glendon says her refusal stems from the University's persistence in choosing to honor Obama with an honorary degree, despite U.S. Bishops Conference policy that forbids honoring pro-abortion politicians. . .

Notre Dame Loses $8.2 Million in Withheld Donations over Obama Scandal

DEARBORN, MI, April 27, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On the same day that former Vatican ambassador Mary Ann Glendon announced that she has decided to refuse Notre Dame's Laetare Medal due to the university's invitation of Obama to receive an honorary degree at this year's commencement ceremony, a group protesting the decision has announced that the university has also lost millions in donations because of the scandal.

Organizers of ReplaceJenkins.com, an online effort urging alumni and donors to the University of Notre Dame to withhold donations, announced Monday that they have personally confirmed over $8.2 million in withheld donations. The URL of the website - ReplaceJenkins.com - is a reference to the main demand of the group - that Notre Dame president Fr. John Jenkins, who has firmly stood by the university's decision to honor Obama, be replaced with someone who will uphold the Catholic identity of the university.

The website has received over 900 pledges from alumni and donors promising to withhold future donations. Several of the largest gifts include estate bequests to the University that have been removed from donors' wills. . .

President Obama's Health Care Plan Could Require Rationing, Warnings Begin

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- President Barack Obama and his Congressional allies haven't yet announced a universal health care plan, but warnings are already beginning that it will likely include health care rationing. That's a concern for the pro-life movement because it can lead to euthanasia and assisted suicide.

In a powerful column written in the Washington Post, noted author Charles Krauthammer notes "the math doesn't add up" on covering Americans without cutting back on medical care.

"His universal health-care proposal would increase costs by perhaps $1 trillion," Krauthammer says.

"The hard part is Medicare and Medicaid. In an aging population, how do you keep them from blowing up the budget? There is only one answer: rationing," he explains. Krauthammer points out that the stimulus package pours $1.1 billion into medical "comparative effectiveness research," which he calls the "perfect setup for rationing."

"Once you establish what is 'best practice' for expensive operations, medical tests and aggressive therapies, you've laid the premise for funding some and denying others," he says. . .

Archbishop Naumann: ND Leadership Either "Incredibly Naïve" ...

NOTRE DAME, Indiana, April 27, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Two more archbishops have expressed disapproval of the University of Notre Dame's invitation to President Obama to offer the commencement address and receive an honorary law degree May 17.

In his column in The Leaven, the Kansas City diocesan newspaper, Archbishop Joseph Naumann said he was "dismayed" to learn of the honor, saying he does "not fault the president for accepting this invitation, but the university for offering it."

"Notre Dame's action is inconsistent with its Catholic identity and harmful to the efforts of the church to advocate for the protection of innocent, preborn human life," wrote Naumann. The archbishop cited the 2004 directive by the U.S. Bishops Conference (USCCB) forbidding Catholic institutions from honoring pro-abortion politicians.

"Notre Dame's invitation to President Obama reveals that the leadership of the university is either incredibly naïve or just does not care about the impact of its actions on the church's efforts to protect the lives of innocent, vulnerable unborn children," he said. . .

Francis Cardinal George (Archbishop of Chicago and the current President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) has publicly compared abortion to slavery and has basically called Zero a liar.

Thread by me.

Catholic Cardinal Meets With Obama: Says President Claims He's Not Pro-Abortion

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The president of the national conference of Catholic bishops recently elaborated further on the meeting he had in March with President Barack Obama. Cardinal George told a recent gathering of Catholic priests that Obama says he is not pro-abortion and will eventually work to reduce abortions.

For most pro-life advocates, Obama's extensive pro-abortion record of executive orders and key political appointments proves otherwise.

According to a Catholic News Service report, Cardinal Francis George discussed the conversation he had with Obama at a March 18 meeting at the White House.

"I think on the life issue he's on the wrong side of history," the cardinal said, but he added that Obama wants to make pro-life advocates appear as if he is on their side.

"It's hard to disagree with him because he'll always tell you he agrees with you," he said, according to CNS. "Maybe that's political. I think he sincerely wants to agree with you. You have to say, again and again, 'No, Mr. President, we don't agree (on abortion).'"

The Catholic News Service indicates Cardinal George said he told Obama he is concerned with the president's decision to overturn the Mexico City Policy and opening the door to funding groups that promote and perform abortions in other nations.

"He said we weren't exporting abortion," the cardinal recounted. "I said, 'Yes we are.' He would say, 'I know I have to do certain things here. ... But be patient and you'll see the pattern will change.' I said, 'Mr. President, you've given us nothing but the wrong signals on this issue.' So, we'll see, but I'm not as hopeful now as I was when he was first elected."

"I think he has his political debts to pay, and so he's paying them," Cardinal George said of the impression he was left with after the Obama meeting.

Ultimately, the Catholic pro-life leader cast a pessimistic view of the situation under Obama and the long-term outlook.

"I think we're up against something a little bit like slavery," he said, adding that Obama and abortion advocates are unwilling to change the law to protect human life before birth.

"It's a society-dividing issue, and on this issue, we're with Abraham Lincoln and he's with Stephen Douglas, and he doesn't like to hear that, but that's where he is," George said, according to CNS.

"For 80 years we were a slave republic, and it took a terrible war to end that. And now for 40 years we're in an abortion regime, and I'm not sure how that's going to end," he added.

Exclusive Interview: Cardinal Rigali Says Notre Dame Obama Honor "Evades Common Sense"

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, April 28, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Philadelphia's Cardinal Justin Rigali, Chairman of the U.S. Catholic bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities, weighed in on the Notre Dame scandal in an exclusive interview with LifeSiteNews.com today. Rigali called the school's decision to honor President Obama a "most unfortunate" decision that "must not happen again," and criticized the school's defense of the decision as one that "evades common sense."

President Obama is due to give the commencement address and receive an honorary law degree at Notre Dame May 17.

"My reaction is that it is most unfortunate," said Rigali. "It's most unfortunate because of the confusion it causes; it's most unfortunate because of the message that it gives with regard to the importance of human life; it's most unfortunate in regard to the confusion that it causes also in the ordinary people - the students, the graduates, the families ... but above all, it is most unfortunate because the value that is attributed to life through the recognition of an honorary degree in this regard is just not acceptable."

Asked to give his opinion on the unprecedented backlash from U.S. bishops and thousands of Catholic laity over Notre Dame's decision, Rigali said he believes that "something very positive is going on in our country along with all the negative things - that there is a greater and evolving understanding of the value of human life in many, many people."

"The backlash is due to a great extent the reaction of people who through their intuition, through their common sense, they know that this is just not an acceptable way to take a position on something that is so important," he said. . .

Supermodel Kathy Ireland Lashes Out Against 'Pro Choice'

Here is an excerpt of an interesting piece from FOXNEWS about how previously "pro-choice" supermodel Kathy Ireland went from believing in abortion to speaking out against about it:

"My entire life I was pro-choice — who was I to tell another woman what she could or couldn’t do with her body? But when I was 18, I became a Christian and I dove into the medical books, I dove into science."

...

"What I read was astounding and I learned that at the moment of conception a new life comes into being. The complete genetic blueprint is there, the DNA is determined, the blood type is determined, the sex is determined, the unique set of fingerprints that nobody has had or ever will have is already there."

However Ireland admitted that she did everything she could to avoid becoming a believer in pro-life.

"I called Planned Parenthood and begged them to give me their best argument and all they could come up with that it is really just a clump of cells and if you get it early enough it doesn’t even look like a baby. Well, we’re all clumps of cells and the unborn does not look like a baby the same way the baby does not look like a teenager, a teenager does not look like a senior citizen. That unborn baby looks exactly the way human beings are supposed to look at that stage of development. It doesn’t suddenly become a human being at a certain point in time," Ireland argued. "I’ve also asked leading scientists across our country to please show me some shred of evidence that the unborn is not a human being. I didn’t want to be pro-life, but this is not a woman’s rights issue but a human rights issue."

Day -51: Nominates pro-abortion Susan Rice as ambassador to the United Nations; Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards commends her in press release.

Day -51: Nominates pro-abortion Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano as secretary of homeland security, who vetoed her state's partial birth abortion ban.

Day -41: Nominates pro-abortion and pro-universal health (abortion) care Sen. Tom Daschle as secretary of health and human services.

Day -41: Appoints pro-abortion Jeanne Lambrew as deputy director of newly created Office of Health Care Reform under Daschle, which Planned Parenthood heralded as "exciting" in a statement.

Day -41: White House transition team publishes 55-page list of demands from pro-abortion groups.

Day -31: Nominates embryonic stem cell research and human cloning advocates Harold Varmus and Jonathan Moreno to the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

Day -16: Chooses pro-abortion Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine as Democratic Party chairman.

Day -16: Nominates pro-abortion, pro-porn David Ogden as deputy attorney general.

Day -16: Nominates "pregnancy is slavery" and former ACLU and NARAL counsel Dawn Johnsen as assistant attorney general. . .
