Pro-life blog buzz 12-10-13

Coming Home has a bold rebuttal to Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s appearance on Meet the Press, where he claimed that Obamacare wouldn’t really be a problem if it were'nt for the HHS contraception mandate:
So, give the Church that exemption and she will go mute on all of the other horrors this law is visiting on Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
You’re not gonna hear from us anymore.”
No, Cardinal Dolan. Most respectfully, we need you and the other bishops to fight for us…. Want to fill the pews? Defend your flock! The nation has awakened to the trap laid by Obama, the imprisonment, the economic destitution coming under this law, the massive carnival of death on the other end of the life spectrum, and not just abortion. The nation is aroused, and my bishops are losing the forest for the tree.
There is not a shred of moral decency in this law. It is a eugenicist’s dream. It preys on the very weakest on both ends of the life spectrum and impoverishes everyone in-between.
In your interview two years ago, you indicated that the president made all sorts of promises to you and the bishops and then broke them all. Where is your outrage and disgust? You cannot deal with such men. You can only defeat them.
This president and his signature piece of legislation are tearing this nation apart. This is the golden moment for our bishops to stand and fight, with a nation desperate for leadership in that fight. This is our defining moment in the Catholic Church.
This is bigger than contraception and abortion.
This is the forest, not just one tree.

Generations for Life suggests that pro-lifers send Christmas greetings to Mary Wagner of Toronto, who has been in jail since August for the crime of offering life-affirming help to women inside an abortion mill.
According to GFL, “this was the sixth time Mary had been arrested since she began her campaign of civil disobedience in March 2010. Since then, she has spent nearly three years in prison.”
View the promotional video (below) and send Mary a card of encouragement at:

Bound4Life applauds the European Parliament’s rejection of a bill that would have labeled abortion a fundamental human right, mandating that pro-life countries offer abortion in their public healthcare systems. Especially targeted were the pro-life countries of Ireland, Poland and Malta:
The measure the European Parliament is now considering contains no limits regarding gestational age – leaving open the possibility of elective-abortion-until-day-of-birth as a human right. Doubly disturbing are the severe infringement on conscience protections of physicians (specifically gynecologists and anesthesiologists) that are proposed.
While it is good news that it was defeated it was sent back to committee, don’t be surprised to see another attempt.

Josh Brahm highlights the innovative pro-life efforts of Online For Life.

Expose Abortion shares a chilling quote from former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino. No wonder the industry fights so hard to silence those who leave:The resident on call got the job of doing the salines… and they were horrible because you saw one intact, whole baby being born, and sometimes they were alive. That was very, very frightening. It was a very stomach-turning kind of existence.

The FRC Blog has an interview with pro-life Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) about how Obamacare is using federal money to fund abortion in certain healthcare exchanges, in defiance of the Hyde Amendment.

Down on the Pharm questions why the Girl Scouts of America would hire Joshua Ackley as their spokesperson and public relations specialist. Ackley has a second job as a band member in “homo-punk” or “homo-core” genre and is a member of the Dead Betties (pictured right), profiled at How does one manage to promote positive and healthy images for girls by day while exploiting them in some of the band’s images?

Euthanasia Prevention Coalition explains why safeguards and controls don’t work once laws authorizing euthanasia are passed: At a press conference, Prof. Dr. Etienne Montero, Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Namur, Belgium, gave an overview of 11 years of euthanasia in Belgium. The proponents of euthanasia in Belgium recognize that most requests for euthanasia are not rooted in physical pain, which can be controlled, but in psychological suffering. Examples include loss of meaning, loneliness, weariness of life, and need to master one’s death. In situations of suffering, a euthanasia request is understandable, but courts cannot give the right to euthanasia without endangering the lives and security of its citizens. All citizens are at risk of excesses and abuse.
