European Governments Increasingly Bold in Demanding Abortion Rights at UN

by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. : For decades abortion has been among the most controversial issues at the United Nations. Yet it is rarely mentioned by name, but alluded to in phrases like “reproductive health” or “reproductive rights.”

That changed last week. The French, Danish, and Swedish governments dropped the euphemisms and declared abortion an “essential condition” for the full realization of women’s rights at an event during the annual Commission on the Status of Women.

The event’s title cast aside any ambiguity: “Access to Abortion and Bodily Autonomy: achieving Women’s Human Right.” The moderator was the head of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), an organization that sells sexual exploitation as freedom and capitalizes on the medical consequences.

“I’ve always said that if it were men who were getting pregnant, I’m sure that two hundred years ago, abortion would have been legal,” quipped IPPF President Tewodros Melesse.

Melesse argued that being pro-abortion is to be pro-life. “We care about the woman’s life, and the child who’s coming—if they are sick, like Zika, what we are hearing—or thrown on the streets, or kidnapped, or dead. We want all alive, and healthy, and productive, and equal to all humanity. We dare to talk about abortion.”

Despite the new transparency, panelists – pro-abortion activists and representatives from the sponsoring European countries – were spared any probing challenges. Questions were collected in advance on written cards—“to hear from the largest, but not from the few,” according to Melesse, signaling his disinterest in opening a debate.

One statistic deserved challenging. Several panelists said that 13% of maternal deaths are caused by “unsafe” abortion, a claim that has been refuted by the World Health Organization, which puts the figure at 8%.

At the heart of the event was a clear contradiction: while the speakers asserted that access to abortion is a fundamental human right, they simultaneously called for nations to enact an as-yet-unrealized universal right to abortion.

Laurence Rossignol, French minister for women and the family, called for “discussions with reticent states” about abortion in cases of rape, incest, or fetal malformation. Moments later, she abandoned talk of exceptions and called for countries to commit to “fight for a universal right to abortion.”

Åsa Regnér recalled the failed attempt to create a right to abortion at UN conferences in Cairo and Beijing in the mid-1990s. “It’s a shame we cannot open the global conferences again,” the Swedish gender equality minister said, “because resistance is as big as it is, especially when we talk about sexual and reproductive health and rights, and especially when we talk about abortion.”

Religious leaders are among the staunchest opponents of abortion, several panelists said– and they intended to set these leaders straight “I have never been [religious],” Melesse said, “but I know about religion.”

“There is no religion that says [abortion] is a sin, who says a sinner should go to hell. There is always a mercy in any religion,” he asserted. “A dead body, a dead soul cannot be converted to any religion.”

Neither Melesse nor his fellow panelists addressed the conscience rights of health workers whose souls would likewise be imperiled by participating in an act they believed to be sinful. Questions on this from “the few” in the audience were not selected for discussion.

Abortion Is Inconsistent “with An American Perspective On The Value Of Life”

by Dave Andrusko, National Right to Life: The Harvard Law Record bills itself as “the oldest law school-affiliated newspaper in the United States. An independent and nonpartisan paper, it has been published since 1946.”

Apparently a new feature highlights “opposing views from members of the HLS community.”

To be honest, if I had been asked, I would have doubted that they could find anyone in that community to defend HB2, the Texas abortion law whose constitutionality the Supreme Court is currently deciding.

Planned Parenthood Killed Women By Misusing the Abortion Pill, Now FDA Says That’s Okay

The Planned Parenthood abortion corporation has long ignored FDA rules and subjected women to dangerous abortions by giving them the abortion drug outside the guidelines the FDA had put in place.

The abortion drug is responsible for the deaths of dozens of women worldwide, including several in the United States alone, and it has injured at least 1,100 women in the United States alone as of 2006 figures from the Food and Drug Administration. But that hasn’t stopped the agency from deciding today to change the rules and guidelines the abortion industry once had to follow to protect women’s health.

The dangerous RU 486 abortion drug has nearly claimed the lives of two million unborn children in the United States since its approval at the end of the Clinton administration. In addition to the number of unborn children whose lives have been lost to the abortion drug, women have suffered as well, as a Planned Parenthood study admits at least one woman is seriously injured from the abortion pill daily.

Mississippi Senate Passes Bill to Ban Dismemberment Abortions Tearing Babies Limb From Limb

A bill to ban dismemberment abortions has been approved by the Mississippi State Senate. This 40 to 6 vote comes after the Mississippi House of Representatives passed House Bill 519 on a vote of 83-33 back in February. . . .

Dismemberment abortion, performed on a fully-formed, living unborn baby, is a barbaric and dangerous procedure in which the unborn child is literally ripped apart in the womb and pulled out in pieces. The law embodies model legislation from the National Right to Life Committee that would ban “dismemberment abortion,” using forceps, clamps, scissors or similar instruments on a living unborn baby to remove him or her from the womb in pieces. Such instruments are used in dilation and evacuation procedures.

“Dismemberment abortion kills a baby by tearing her apart limb from limb,” said National Right to Life Director of State Legislation Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D. Read More:

Hillary Clinton: I Would Not Appoint Someone to the Supreme Court Who Didn’t Support Abortion

On the presidential campaign trail, Hillary Clinton is making it abundantly clear. She will not name any nominees to the Supreme Court who do not support abortion on demand.

Asked about President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia, Clinton said she would not second guess Obama’s nomination and added that any nomination she would make if elected would be a hardcore abortion activists who supports Roe v. Wade, which has ushered in an era of 58 million abortions. Read More

Satanists Defend Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic From Pro-Lifers on Good Friday

Pro-life Christians who were praying peacefully outside of a Michigan abortion clinic on Good Friday faced mockery as they remembered Jesus’ death on the cross. ...

Jex Blackmore, leader of the Detroit Satanists, carried a wooden cross and wore a crown of thorns and a fake pregnancy belly, according to the report. Around her were other Satanists also dressed in black, with names of pro-life legislators painted on their backs, while another Satanist carried a black-and-white American flag and wore a black jacket with a picture of an extended middle finger. The group called the protest the “Sanctions of the Cross” in mockery of the pro-lifers’ Stations of the Cross vigil, the report states.

“The Satanic Temple believes that all people are entitled to make informed decisions about their health, family and future without coercion,” the group said in a press release. “The philosophical and religious opinions of some should not be used to legislate morality.”

Finnish Government Sponsors Attacks on Catholic Belief at UN

by Lisa Correnti and Marianna Orlandi, Ph.D, C-Fam: Holy Week did not deter an open attack sponsored by the government of Finland on the Catholic Church and religious teaching on family and sexuality at an event at the United Nations this week.

Finland’s government screened a documentary on an aid worker determined to confront Catholic “taboos” on sex. “Hyvästi Afrikka” – Leaving Africa – was advertised as a “story about friendship and the empowerment of women.” Yet Finnish filmmaker Iiris Härmä’s intention became evident minutes into the movie as a scene between Dr. Riitta Kujala and her longtime friend Ugandan nurse Catherine “Cata” Othieno discuss the “hypocrisy” of the Catholic Church.

Though Dr. Riitta worked in Uganda for 27 years, attending to the medical needs of rural Ugandans, the film focuses on the controversial sexuality education she and Cata offered to adults and children – and on the delayed renewal of Dr. Riitta’s work permit. The delay is attributed to a growing opposition against homosexuality in Uganda.

The filming took place around the time Western countries were ratcheting up pressure on African countries to liberalize their laws on homosexuality.

The event, which was opened with remarks by Finnish Ambassador Anne Lamilla, was co-sponsored by a Finnish NGO which funded Dr. Ritta’s work in Uganda and receives 80% of its funding from the Finnish government. Though the film is specific to work in Uganda, missing from the event were any representatives from the Ugandan government.

Härmä said the film took on a life of its own when an anonymous letter was sent to Ugandan government officials accusing Cata’s group and Dr. Riitta of promoting homosexuality among children. It also accused the two women, who are housemates, of an inappropriate lesbian relationship.

The film documents sexual education workshops with Dr. Riitta instructing with graphic descriptions. Before retiring and returning to Finland, Riitta decides to challenge religious leaders to a “straightforward, taboo breaking” discussion on women and sexuality that inferred that their teachings are responsible for population explosion, disempowering women and keeping families poor.

A main character is a Catholic woman depicted as a “reproductive machine,” a victim of her unfaithful husband and his sexual desires. Shots of religious icons in her home of Benedict XVI, of Jesus and Mary convey that she was under the spell of the Church. The film ends with an enlightened Catholic woman now using contraception and proselytizing others – due to the work of Cata and Dr. Riitta.

The audience was not persuaded.

“This documentary presents contraception as a solution to too many babies,” said Anne Belanger, a young woman representing WOOMB International. It does not take into account the culture of Ugandan people and it does not teach women about their fertility.”

A young schoolteacher with Pure In Heart International challenged the premise of happiness through sexual autonomy. “From my own experience with teenagers and working with young people I think we are failing them enormously with comprehensive sex education,” Marie Cummins said.

Neither the filmmaker nor the Ambassador responded to the young women.

Houston Planned Parenthood Joins Lawsuit Against Daleiden After Being Caught On Video

Ben Johnson, LifeSiteNews: Yet another Planned Parenthood affiliate entered legal combat with the Center for Medical Progress today.

Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC), based in Houston, joined a lawsuit against the pro-life investigators who released undercover footage showing abortion officials – including some in Houston – discussing the harvesting and sale of human organs.

“Extreme anti-abortion politicians who want to ban abortion have invoked these lies to fuel their efforts to pass extreme restrictions on access to reproductive health care,” said PPGC President Melaney Linton in a press statement. “Even after David Daleiden has been indicted on a felony charge and these videos have been thoroughly discredited, women are still facing devastating consequences from these smear videos.”

“These extreme anti-abortion activists acted illegally and then spread lies about our care,” Linton said.

The fifth undercover Planned Parenthood video released by CMP investigators caught PPGC Director of Research Melissa Farrell seemingly agreeing to alter the abortion process without any medical necessity, as well as discussing how it would be “exciting” to dissect a human being.

“If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, we can make it part of the budget” to cover “dissections” and “splitting the specimens into different shipments,” she said. “It’s all just a matter of line items.”

Farrell said she would be willing to personally dissect the often “intact” babies. "I know it’s sickening on some level, but it’s fun," she said.

After the videos provoked a national backlash and numerous state and federal investigations – including a select House panel that is still investigating – the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and numerous affiliates in California and Colorado sued CMP investigators in January. . . .

by Norm Beznoska Jr., ARRA News Service: The road to Calvary and the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ spanned a period of less than 24 hours from the time of the Last Supper, the Jewish Passover meal on Thursday evening, to Friday afternoon at 3:00 PM when Jesus breathed his last. But, the story of His death and resurrection still echoes down the hill side of Jerusalem throughout history. His story is just ‘alive today’ as it was when it happened at the place of the skull, ‘Golgotha’ in Jerusalem, some 2000 years ago.

Preceding His crucifixion, Jesus suffered hours of unimaginable torture; facial beatings at the hands of Temple guards in the sham courtroom of Caiaphas; brutal scourging ordered by Pilate, by two Roman soldiers with flagrums of nine leather thongs fitted with lead balls and sharp pieces of bone, that caused over 240 deep lacerations from the back of His neck to the soles of His feet, leaving a mutilated mass of torn muscle and hanging flesh; and a tremendous loss of blood causing hypovolemic shock. To further mock and humiliate Him, Roman soldiers fastened a “Crown of Thorns” with branches (from a wild hawthorn bush with long, sharp, hard thorns) to cover His entire scalp. The thorns penetrated the skin, and were driven more and more deeply into his head when He was struck repeatedly. A comedy of mock adoration was played out as the Romans and crowd yelled, roaring with laughter: “Hail, King of the Jews!” Yet, Jesus uttered no rebuke and accepted their vile treatment without response.

Carrying the heavy wooden cross opened severe wounds on His shoulders and more bleeding; He fell three times, breaking His nose, so breathing became almost impossible. Reaching His destination with the help of Simon the Cyrenean, He fell atop His cross. His arms were literally pulled out of their sockets by Roman soldiers to match the holes 9-inch nails would be driven through His wrists and ankles to hold Him fast to the cross. His executioners and the Scribes and Pharisees expected Him to cry and scream from the excruciating pain. They were sure the same man who preached “love your enemies’, and “do good to those who hurt you” would forget His own words and curse them. What they got instead, was “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” Forgive the very people who hate and are trying to kill you? Honestly, there’s no way I could.

Then, in that final, terrible moment when He was dying on the cross, taking on all the sins of the world, Jesus cried out like we do when we feel a sense of abandonment: “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?” Questions I have asked “If God is so loving, why is there so much evil? Why didn’t He answer my prayers? Why did God take my Mother after weeks of suffering before she could her me say “I love you” one last time? Why? Jesus stands at the door and knocks, but the latch is on the inside; only we can open it.

For the last three hours on that “Good Friday’, Jesus had been about His Father’s business. His passion and death avail us nothing unless we take up our cross and follow Him. Unless there is a ‘Crown of Thorns’, there will never be a glorified body; unless there is the thirst, there will never be the Heavenly refreshment. Jesus work is finished, but is ours? For unless there is a “Good Friday’ in our lives, there will never be an Easter Sunday.

Shock Study: 76% of Doctors Say It’s OK to Put DNR on Disabled Baby Without Telling His Parents

The Journal of Medical Ethics published on March 17, 2016 a survey compiled from 490 out of 3000 practicing neonatologists. The survey showed 76% of the neonatologists thought it was ethically permissible to issue a ‘Do Not Attempt Resuscitation’, (DNAR), without asking or notifying the parents for an infant when they “felt it impossible” for the child to survive. 61% of the neonatologists said a DNAR without parental consent was permissible when survival was ‘unlikely’. . . .

This chilling admission by such a great number of practicing neonatologists that it is “ethically permissible” to secretly put DNR’s on medically vulnerable patients shows that by and large these doctors do not see their responsibility as a doctor to be transparent with their most vulnerable patients. It is reminiscent of the class action suit from 1973 that was filed on behalf of hundreds of poor black men, women, and children at Tuskegee. The doctors who carried out a study entitled the “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male” never told the men that its purpose was to show the consequences of untreated syphilis in the black male. Even when penicillin became a known standard treatment for the disease during the 40 years of the study, the men were never informed. Read More

Pepsi, Visa, and Chevron are Exempt From HHS Mandate, But Little Sisters of the Poor are Not

The Obama administration has been unrelenting in its fight to force a group of Catholic nuns to violate their beliefs and pay for abortion-causing drugs and contraception, arguing that they are essential health care services. . . .

While arguing publicly that religious groups should be forced to comply with the HHS Mandate, the Obama administration quietly exempted several major companies from those same rules. Lawyers for the religious groups used this point to argue against the federal government’s overarching mandate. . . .

Meanwhile, some other health plans have been “grandfathered” in and are not subject to the mandate. These include plans offered by ExxonMobil, Chevron, Visa Inc. and PepsiCo.

Furthermore, the U.S. Military includes a family insurance plan that does not offer the mandated services.

And, according to the website, one in three Americans do not have a health plan that satisfies the mandate. The Little Sisters say that since so many employers are offered exemptions under various justifications, there is no reason that they should not receive a religious exemption as well. . . .

Family Research Council Statement on Little Sisters of the Poor Supreme Court Oral Arguments

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Zubik v. Burwell, two of FRC's legal experts were present in the Courtroom to listen as attorneys for each side were challenged by the Justices.

Zubick v. Burwell was consolidated with six other cases (including Little Sisters of the Poor) with dozens of plaintiffs between them. All of these religious non-profits object to being forced by the HHS mandate to violate their faith-based principles by providing contraception, sterilization, and drugs and devices that can kill an embryo. They have brought claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), and have asked the Supreme Court to protect them since their sincere religious beliefs have been substantially burdened. Meanwhile, the government has tried to show that it is advancing a compelling interest with its HHS mandate and is doing so through the least restrictive means possible.

Family Research Council attorneys Cathy Ruse, Senior Legal Fellow and former chief counsel to the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, and Travis Weber, Director of the Center for Religious Liberty, were in the Courtroom during oral arguments. Both are graduates of Georgetown University Law Center.

Following oral arguments, Ruse made the following comments:

"Sitting in the courtroom today made me realize the extent of the Obama Administration's hostility toward people of faith. When the Chief Justice asked the Solicitor General whether he believed even churches could be forced to sign the form and follow the mandate against their sincere beliefs, Attorney General Verilli answered, 'Yes.' This is what the future may hold if Justice Scalia's replacement agrees with the Obama Administration."

Weber also commented after hearing the oral arguments:

"In court today, the government was hard-pressed to show it had a compelling interest which it was advancing by the least restrictive means. In addition, to rule for the Obama administration in this case, the Court would be signing off on the idea that the government can judge matters of religious doctrine sufficiently to determine whether they have been substantially burdened. That's not the American way and it's not what Americans want."

DAY 40: Faith Creates Opportunity - 40 Days for Life - 2016

Shawn Carney, Campaign Director, 40 Days for Life: Faith is a gift from God.

Many of us were instructed in the Christian faith and given the examples of the martyrs, converts, family members and friends who went before us through the centuries.

But the decision to believe in Christ ... and act upon that belief ... is left to us.

We also have to answer the question, “What kind of a culture do we want?

How we respond to our faith in Christ determines the answer to that question. Over the past 40 days, we’ve seen a heroic response in 273 cities.

As a result, babies scheduled to be aborted are alive today. Abortion facilities have closed after decades of doing business. And people have prayed, often in freezing weather, piercing the hearts of those who work in the abortion industry.

We live in difficult times, but we need not be paralyzed by the current culture. We need to embrace the beautiful words of Our Lord: “In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Faith creates opportunity – opportunity to change hearts, minds and attitudes in places we least expect it.

We end this 40 Days for Life campaign with a story that speaks to the seeds that our faith in Christ can plant.

Plano, Texas
 
 
“We had the good fortune to chat with a couple college students who decided to pull over and stand with us,” said Steve in Plano. However, they were standing in front of Planned Parenthood with pro-choice signs.

They said they were libertarians, which provided an opening for one of the vigil participants. He was also a libertarian, he said – and that’s why he was against abortion.
 
Abortion supporters often use the “it’s my body” argument. But the two young men agreed that there are cases in which individual freedom can be constrained – drunk driving laws, for instance, that take into account the rights of other drivers who do not consent to share the road with intoxicated motorists.
 
The same principle, they were told, applies to unborn babies, who have not consented to being aborted. Of course, at that point the two questioned whether the unborn have any rights.
 
The 40 Days for Life volunteer then quoted from the Declaration of Independence: “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.”
 
The vigil participant emphasized “created equal,” not “born equal.”
 
 
The young men then objected that the baby is not conscious. The two were asked if they’d ever had surgery. And one had.

“Were you under anesthesia? a volunteer asked.

Yes, I was, the young man answered.

Would it be okay if while you were under anesthesia the doctor decided to murder you because you are unconscious and you won’t be aware of it?

Of course not! the young man answered.

A second ago, you said consciousness was the barometer to determine whether it’s okay to murder. If you’re not conscious, why is it wrong for a doctor to kill you?

Because I will regain consciousness, the college student answered.

Exactly. And if left alone, the babies will become fully conscious – if they’re not already.”
 

After chatting for a long time, the two college students thanked the 40 Days for Life participants for talking with them. One even shared his email, requesting more information. They said they were surprised and pleased that they were allowed to ask questions and share their views without being ridiculed.

“Folks, when the pro-choicers show up with their signs, that is a blessing,” Steve said. “It’s a blessing because whether they realize it or not, they’re often being called by God … and sometimes these encounters lead to spiritual conversions … because the Holy Spirit is at work on the grass.”

Massachusetts: Teachers Unions Back Bill Allowing Adult Males To Shower With Young Girls

by Ben Johnson, Life Site News: A bill that would allow adult biological males to shower or change alongside young girls has earned the endorsement of two prominent teachers unions in Massachusetts.

State legislators are considering a bill that would specifically open all public restrooms, shower facilities, and locker rooms to transgender people.

"An Act Relative to Gender Identity and Non-Discrimination" (H.B. 1577) would add "gender identity" to the state's protected classes able to access all public facilities, such as private changing areas. Lawmakers specifically exempted "lawfully sex-segregated facilities" when it passed a 2011 ordinance granting transgender people protected legal status, but included school restroom facilities.

"The issue with the latest bill is not that it opens up opposite sex restrooms in the schools, because they're already open in the schools at this point in Massachusetts," Sean Ryan, director of communications for the pro-family watchdog group MassResistance, told LifeSiteNews.

"This pending legislation opens the floodgate to adults being able to victimize children in public facilities," Ryan continued. "Erasing the distinction of sex and allowing men to use opposite-sex facilities is a predator's dream."

The Massachusetts Teachers Association - the state affiliate of the National Education Association (NEA) - and the American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts announced that they support H.B. 1577. So have two professional organizations of public school administrators: the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents and the Massachusetts Association of School Committees.

"Groups that should be advocating for children's safety have turned against parents and endorsed a legal concept that by nature puts children at risk," Ryan told LifeSiteNews.

The group has compiled a list of incidents in which men have physically threatened, attempted to rape, or otherwise sexually revealed themselves to women and girls in private facilities.

It's not merely public sector unions fueling the bill with compulsory union dues. Titans of the private sector have also backed the bill.

Business members of Freedom Massachusetts, the key group lobbying for the law, include Facebook, Twitter, Google, the United Way, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, the online backup service Carbonite, Planet Fitness, and the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, along with dozens of other firms.

"The transgender lobbying organization 'Freedom Massachusetts' is backed by dozens of insurance companies, law firms, big banks and San Francisco tech companies trying to force their values on all of us," according to the Massachusetts Family Institute, which is also fighting the bill.

But Ryan says the teachers unions' support calls into question the underlying quality of public schools.

"Educational development demands that children are taught facts, not a subjective notion advanced by radical activists that has no basis in reality," Ryan told LifeSiteNews. "Teachers endorsing such phony concepts should make one wonder about the quality of education in general in the Bay State."

Chelsea Clinton: My Mom Thinks It Is “Important” to Extend ObamaCare to Cover Illegal Immigrants

For the pro-life movement, Obamacare is an anti-life boondoggle. The nationalized health care program pays for abortions, it sends taxpayer funds to the Planned Parenthood abortion business, it promotes rationing of health care and it forces Christian-owned and operated groups and business to pay for drugs that may cause abortion.

UN Panel on Political Correctness Shocks Young Social Justice Warriors

by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. (C-FAM): On March 17, 2016, during the UN Commission on the Status of Women, social critics Michael Walsh and Stella Morabito challenged a room full of gender ideologists to consider the totalitarian dangers of political correctness, a challenge that was met with stiff resistance including from a bearded young man with dangling earrings who called himself “gender non-binary.”

Morabito warned that the rise of political correctness and the increasing enforcement of gender ideology by law and social pressure threatens freedom and leads to totalitarianism. “One of the dominant features of political correctness is that it isolates people from one another,” she said, arguing that the suppression of speech and the censorship of free expression threatens the personal relationships that are the foundation of human happiness.

“Gender ideology, even though it’s based on freedom and authenticity, comes with a very rigid set of rules for public discourse,” said Morabito, which leads to laws that “enforce silence about what it means to be human.”

“We’re dealing with a form of individualism that’s so extreme that it’s just not sustainable.”

Music critic Michael Walsh, author of the recent book, “The Devil’s Pleasure Palace,” explained how art, as well as conversation, falls victim to political correctness.

“There is no more humor when you cannot make fun of anybody, and Hollywood comedies suffer from that greatly.” He cited the recent and highly-publicized example of Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner coming out as transgender and recalled how a man dressed in a ball gown was played for laughs in Mel Brooks’ film “The Producers.” “Is that Bruce Jenner or is that Mel Brooks comedy? Well, today, could Mel Brooks make that movie?”

While both panelists agreed that public discourse is not best served by intentionally offending others, as Morabito said, “free speech is about protecting offensive speech, when you get right down to it.”

Walsh drew on his experiences visiting the Soviet Union before its collapse. “The difficulty that every fascistic, totalitarian system has is the gap between reality and what they’re telling you becomes so great that it eventually collapses on itself.”

Despite taking place during the last evening time slot of the day, the venue was packed, and the discussion that followed the panelists’ presentations was passionate, and had to be cut short due to time constraints.

One student called Walsh “racist, homophobic, and transphobic.” The young man with the dangling earrings insisted on society’s right to enforce new views of reality including new ideas on gender. At times the debate grew heated.

One student named Lopez accused the panelists as having white privilege and that she as a Latina was at a disadvantage in society. Morabito told her that her grandmother had watched her grandfather crucified during the Armenian genocide. Walsh told how his grandmother came to the US as an immigrant not speaking a word of English.

Ultimately the two authors’ words were a warning: between the increasingly individualistic notion of human rights and the growing pressure to redefine humanity in terms of gender ideology, freedom of expression and the ability of people to connect with one another are at risk.

In particular, Morabito warned of how political correctness threatens the institutions that serve as a “buffer” between individuals and the state, including families and churches: “With political correctness, we lose civil society.

Double The Surprise, Double The Blessing

by Brian Fischer, President, On-Line for Life: Having a baby was not in Xavreia’s plan. She was nearly 40 years old and already the mother of two teenagers.

Xavreia had been feeling extremely sick, so she decided to go to the ER. There, she learned the cause of her symptoms: pregnancy. Feeling confused, Xavreia shared the news with a friend who referred her to one of Online for Life’s women’s care clinics. During her appointment at the clinic, an ultrasound revealed an even bigger surprise—she was expecting twins!

Our clinic staff served as a listening ear and a hand to hold as Xavreia processed the news and considered placing her babies for adoption. She describes the staff who helped her during this uncertain time: “Not only are they caring people, but they make you feel safe. They don’t pressure you. Instead, they are just there for you.”

Knowing the love she had for her two teenage sons and the joy of being a mother, Xavreia decided to keep her babies. She wanted to love on them, care for them, and watch them grow, And she knew she had a good support system in place with her parents living nearby.

After the birth of her twin girls, our clinic continued to provide Xavreia with help and resources as she adjusted to her new life with two babies, providing diapers, food, and clothes. Xavreia says, “It just amazes me that there is an organization out there that can help young women and young families who are struggling.”

As she is now on the other side of the journey, with beautiful 4-year-old twins, Xavreia has advice for expecting parents who are now walking the same road she once did…

“Never give up, because there is someone out there to help you and lead you in the right direction. If you feel like you’re alone, you’re not.”

All of us at Online for Life work tirelessly to help mothers and fathers facing a unplanned pregnancy know they are not alone. We are here to comfort them, care for them, and stand with them both during and after their unplanned pregnancies.

Thank you for your support of these parents and their precious children. You help ensure that every child has the chance to experience LIFE.

DAY 39: Babies, Moms & Workers - 40 Days for Life - 2016

Shawn Carney, Campaign Director, 40 Days for Life: We should treat abortion workers no differently than we treat anyone else, including ourselves. We’re all sinners in need of prayer.

Yes, it may be hard to keep that in mind if the employees are confrontational. But a loving response can – and does – make a difference.

Just ask abortion facility workers who have criticized 40 Days for Life campaigns outside their workplace ... only to later join the prayer vigil. We must trust in God’s mercy and love, and not in ourselves.

We have seen 128 abortion workers have a change of heart and leave their jobs during 40 Days for Life campaigns – including one in this current campaign. The road to leaving – and then finding healing – can be difficult. The process calls us to love, mercy and patience.

The difference in witnessing to those in the abortion industry is, in the end, not about arguments or political policy, but love.

An abortion facility is not only a difficult place to work ... it can even be a difficult place to clean. Here’s an example.

Manhattan, New York
 
 
“Sundays are typically not as eventful because the clinic is closed,” said Jill, the 40 Days for Life leader in Manhattan. “However, this Sunday afternoon I felt the Holy Spirit at work through our prayers.”
 
While she was praying outside Planned Parenthood, a beat-up white van pulled up and men began loading cleaning supplies.
 
“All of a sudden, I felt a strong urge to talk to these men,” she said. She found the crew manager, and told him this Planned Parenthood was responsible for more than 11,000 abortions every year. 
 
The man said they all worked for a cleaning service, not Planned Parenthood, and they were just assigned to that building. He said it was just another job.
 
That’s when Jill felt a nudge from the Holy Spirit.
 
“If this was World War II,” she asked, “would you have cleaned the concentration camp?” 
 
He responded with an emphatic “No!” 
 
“Eleven thousand children a year,” Jill reminded him. “Tell your boss you can’t clean this place anymore. Ask for another job. Say you will work twice as hard.” 
 
He responded, “Okay, I will.”   
 
“You too have a duty to defend life,” she said. “You are being called to play an active part in God’s plan to end abortion.  Please come out and join us … and experience the power of the Holy Spirit acting through our prayers.”
 
St. Louis, Missouri
 
 
Over the years, many of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in St. Louis have met – and taken a liking to – a member of Planned Parenthood’s janitorial staff.
 
“Our sidewalk counselors often encounter him,” said Brian, the local leader in St. Louis. “He always passes by us with a smile, a kind word, sometimes even a joke. It is truly one of the most amiable exchanges between sidewalk counselor and Planned Parenthood staff that I’ve witnessed.”

But recently, as he was leaving work, this man passed by one of the volunteers … seeming to be in a bit of a hurry. With an apologetic smile, he whispered, “I was told I can’t talk to you anymore, or I’ll get fired. They said I was consorting with the enemy.”  

“What Planned Parenthood has failed to recognize in all of this is that we are not their enemy,” Brian said, “nor is the battle line of this fight the boundary which extends between our side of the fence and theirs. Rather, we are all brothers and sisters.”

He added that it’s good to “remember the truth about the identity of those working within Planned Parenthood – that they, just as we, are sons and daughters of God in need of His boundless mercy.”

SCOTUS Nominee Merrick Gardner Ruled Obama Could Make Pro-Life Group Obey HHS Mandate

Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland doesn’t have a long paper trail when it comes to the issue of abortion, but he sided with the majority in one case that forced a pro-life group to obey the HHS mandate — requiring organizations to pay for abortion-causing drugs for their employees.

Garland joined in a unanimous decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in November 2014, which concluded last year that the HHS mandate doesn’t abrogate the religious freedoms of Priests for Life or 11 other religious groups that also challenged the mandate.

Priests for Life was one of the earliest organizations to file a lawsuit against the Obama administration over its HHS mandate. The mandate compels religious groups to pay for birth control drugs and drugs like ella that can cause very early abortions. But Garland’s court ruled against the pro-life groups. . . .

Garland has praised the author of Roe v. Wade and said his court paper are “the greatest gift to the country.” And information has surfaced showing that his former clerks have gone on to serve liberal judges by a 3-1 margin.    Read More

A Palm Sunday Convergence of Pro-Life Runners From Across America

by Kevin Mooney, The Daily Signal: When you turn to God after experiencing the raw side of life and run more than 3,700 miles across the entire country, it’s fair to say you’re someone who can endure intense physical, psychological, and emotional trauma.

But if you’re Jeff Grabosky, and in you’re in the midst of another long run, you’re not convinced the endurance that served you so well previously will be there again.

That thought came to mind last month as Grabosky and other “LIFE Runners” ascended the mountain regions in and around rural Nevada as part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness and funds on behalf of the unborn.

“We were dealing with some pretty tough elevation in some mountainous areas—I would say going 5,000- to 7,000-feet elevation the entire time,” Grabosky says in an interview with The Daily Signal. “So any thought that you were in good shape began to dissipate when you tried to breathe in the thin air. But the scenery and the skies were just beautiful.”

Grabosky, now 33 and living with his family in Jefferson City, Mo., began planning for his cross-country journey back in 2006, after his mother died of cancer. His marriage ended that same year. He wrote a book, “Running With God Across America,” detailing his physical and spiritual journey.

During his cross-country run, Grabosky says, he often would pray the rosary when he encountered a difficult stretch—a technique he picked up from his mother, who was also a runner.

Grabosky is running just as hard and just as long today as he did back then, but he’s not doing it alone.

Grabosky and thousands of other LIFE Runners from across America began their 40-day journey on Feb. 10, Ash Wednesday. They wore jerseys, the backs declaring, “Remember the Unborn—Jeremiah 1:5” and fronts depicting a shield of faith.

The annual “A-Cross America Relay” began in 2013 as an East-West run inspired by Grabosky’s solo run in 2011, which started in Oceanside, Calif., on Jan. 20 and ended at Smith Point in Long Island, N.Y., on May 20.

Along the way, Grabosky met up with Pat Castle, a fellow pro-life activist and marathon runner, who had a vision for what might come next. Castle saw an opportunity to spread the pro-life message by bringing together runners from across the country who shared their Christian convictions.

Grabosky, 33, and Castle, 44, are both practicing Catholics who are ambitious to end the practice of abortion and to protect human life from conception to natural death.

The two men met for the first time in Alton, Ill., on April Fools’ Day as Grabosky was making his way to New York in 2011. Castle, co-founder of LIFE Runners, decided to press ahead with a cross-country run that would draw pro-life activists from around the nation.

Grabosky says:
The idea here is to put our faith into action and to use the talents God gave us to promote his kingdom. The goal is to raise awareness and funds to help end abortion, but also to grow in our faith.About 70 runners were part of the group in 2011, Grabosky estimates, and now there are now more than 4,200 members in all 50 states and in 25 countries.

The route for this year’s event comprises 5,544 miles. The locations for the start of all four arms of the run Feb. 10 were selected strategically so the runners could form a giant cross at the finish line celebration on Palm Sunday, March 20, at Macken Park in Kansas City, Mo.

The East Arm (1,598 miles) began at the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City; the West Arm (1,975) at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco; the South Arm (1,086 miles) at Corpus Christi Bay, Texas; and the North Arm (884 miles) at Neche, N.D., near the Canadian border.

The official route swings by abortion clinics, where participants join in prayer with groups associated with the “40 Days for Life” campaign. Runners also could register and run different legs from remote locations. Organizers hoped to cover as much of the actual routes as possible with individual or multiple participants.

Board members wanted to lead by example, so they made a pilgrimage to Nevada on Presidents Day weekend to fill 100 miles of some of the most difficult terrain. Grabosky and Castle were joined by Grant Fenske, 52, who started a LIFE Runners chapter in Lafayette, La.

The Nevada pilgrimage began at a hotel in the town of Tonopah, about a three-hour drive north from McCarran International Airport near Las Vegas. From there, the only stop Grabosky says he remembers is a rest area labeled Area 51 Alien Center.

“We certainly felt like we were in the middle of nowhere,” he recalls.

In an email, Grabosky recounts what happened next:

Saturday, Feb. 13
After waking up early, I waited for the rest of the team to wake up. We rocked out breakfast right away and then took a drive of more than two hours to our starting point on Route 50, dubbed the ‘Loneliest Road in America.’ We snagged some sweet photos of the LIFE Runners banner along with some other good shots with the beautiful scenery surrounding us.

Once we were all done with that, we kicked off the running part of our pilgrimage around 9:45 a.m. as I hit the road for a 9.6-mile run, which began at 4,610-feet elevation and climbed to 5,135-feet elevation. It was tough to breathe the thin air as well as to climb over 500 feet during that leg, but the breathtaking scenery around me and the sun on my face helped quite a bit.

I prayed a rosary during that leg and offered it all up as redemptive running for the unborn as well as those who continued to deal with the pain of abortion. I ran another leg of 3.7 miles next, and the thin air had me feeling completely exhausted and out of breath despite my body feeling fine. I closed out the day with a 2 mile steep uphill run with Pat [Castle].
From here, the team drove about more than two hours to Ely, Nev., where they headed off to Mass. Grabosky writes:The address for the church we had took us to somewhere that wasn’t even close to the church, so after asking directions from two people, we arrived just a little late, smelling incense as soon as we got out of the car (there was none inside the church). After Mass, the priest saw our LIFE Runners gear and asked us to return the next morning to speak to the parishioners before the 9:30 a.m. Mass. We then headed out for a much-needed meal, where we were approached by a couple who said they loved our shirts and thanked us for spreading a good message. We made it back to our motel and passed out.Sunday, Feb. 14We woke up early and hit the road by about 6:30 a.m. I nailed a 7.2-mile run right out of the gate. It was cold and windy, 19 degrees with a wind chill factor of 7 degrees. The scenery was more than worth it, as everything was still and all I could see for miles was snow-capped mountains. Between the three of us, we put in over 15 miles before making it back to the motel to get ready and headed to Mass.

I spoke to the congregation for a few minutes, followed by a few words from Pat. The priest then affirmed our mission and was able to help identify a few LIFE Runners who already belonged to the parish. Pat led the congregation in a LIFE Runners cheer at the request of the priest before we ran through the aisle and out the door.
The team hit the road again on Route 93 for about four miles before getting back onto the main road, Grabosky writes:
Jeff Grabosky: “Everything was still and all I
 could see for miles was snow-capped mountains.”
After completing a 4.3-mile run, I knocked out a 4-mile run at a good clip before turning onto an unmarked dirt road that made its way through a mountain range toward Utah. It was a brutal stretch that climbed over 800 feet in 4 miles. I finally caught up to Grant [Fenske], who had parked near the summit and we went back and grabbed Pat, who had been waiting a while. We made it back to the summit and Pat and I ran 4 miles together to close out our 100 combined miles, while Grant met us at the end, so we all finished together.The Scripture on the runners’ jerseys, Jeremiah 1:5, reads: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born, I set you apart.”

With the human cross set to come together Palm Sunday in Kansas City, Mo., Grabosky says, LIFE Runners hope to elevate the unique value and distinct possibilities of each human life as the Old Testament prophet expressed it.
