So much pro-life progress is being made at the state level. In over 30 states, restrictions of one form or another on abortion have been passed in the last 3 years.
Mississippi has just passed one of the most restrictive limitations, banning abortions beyond 18 weeks gestation with only a few exceptions (which, I pray, are stringently enforced):
Mississippi has passed one of the nation’s most restrictive abortion laws after Governor Phil Bryant signed a bill banning most abortions at 18 weeks’ gestation, or 20 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period.
House Bill 1400, which will take effect on July 1, allows an abortion if a woman would likely die or face permanent injury as a result of the pregnancy. [The devil is in the details here. Currently, these "life of the mother" exceptions are loosely interpreted to mean a "chance" of post-partum depression (every woman has a chance of that, more or less), a vague chance of some problem during child-birth, etc., to give almost carte blanche to those seeking abortions. All you have to do is find a crooked doctor or two who will sign a form saying your abortion is medically necessary, and not only can you get it, but you can often get the state to pay for it under Medicaid. I hear of this all the time] It also has an exception for when an unborn baby has severe abnormalities, but no rape or incest exceptions.
Bryant, who has said he wants to ban all abortions in his state, signed the bill into law on Wednesday despite heavy criticism from Democrats and abortion providers. One of those critics, Center for Reproductive Rights CEO Nancy Northup, said that “it’s time for these politicians to stop passing laws that attack constitutionally protected women’s health care and finally focus on policies that would support the health, lives and rights of Mississippi women and families.”
Uff da I am so sick of pro-aborts and their satanic language. Abortion is not synonymous with “women’s health care,” and I’m sick of hearing that it is! Abortion is actually a grave threat to women! Many women are wrecked for life as a result of their abortion. But since the entire sexular pagan philosophy of sexual degridation requires abortion as a backstop, it is the vital pillar supporting their entire worldview. It is the non-negotiable requirement for everything else. Thus, the reduction of “health care” to abortion.
The 5th Circuit has upheld Texas’ 20 week ban. Mississippi’s will be upheld, too. But the leftist 9th Circuit overturned Arizona’s 20 week limit, so we now have competing decisions. It will go to the Supreme Court, where anything can happen, determined only by what, ahem, Catholic Anthony Kennedy’s magic coin says that day.
I should have noted previously, but I’ll insert it here real quick, that omnibus pro-abort bill in Colorado that I blogged on before Easter? It failed, and massively. That was the most strident pro-abort legislation proposed in a very long time. I am gratified it failed. But we are seeing a growing division in the country, between around 15 states where abortion is enshrined as an inalienable right (the usual suspects, NY, CA, MA, NJ, etc), and about 30 where restrictions on abortion are growing ever tighter. Numerous southern and Great Plains states are moving to all but ban abortion.
And then there are battleground states like CO and NV where there are both significant pro-life and anti-life forces.
Much work remains. My gut says the Supreme Court will uphold these late-term limitations. But it’s a crap shoot. One never knows how these things will turn out.
Keep praying! And keep working to defend life!
“…..suckers!”…said the lesbian threesome that just got “married” in a wiccan ceremony in Massachusetts.
And even more wonderfully, you and I and other taxpayers and insurance holders got to help pay for the in vitro fertilization one of the threesome received so they could have a child! That goes along with state funded hormone therapy being provided even to those who are way under 18 in many state institutions, or simply under Medicaid.
The slippery slope has turned into a steep vertical fall, straight into hell:
The world’s only ‘married’ lesbian threesome are expecting their first child.
Doll, Kitten and Brynn, from Massachusetts, were joined together in a marriage-style ceremony last August and are expecting a daughter in July.Kitten, 27, is pregnant after undergoing IVF treatment using an anonymous sperm donor, and the trio eventually plan to have three children — one for each of them.
The plan at the moment is that Kitten will bear all the children — possibly using her wives’ eggs and donated sperm — but they are open to other options, such as adoption. [People have forgotten about God. This is a Frankenstein's monster]
Brynn, 34, says: ‘The hope is to have three kids altogether. We always joke that the children should never outnumber the parents.’
Doll, Kitten and Brynn Young married in a ceremony in August 2013, when each of their fathers walked them down the aisle. All three women wore white wedding gowns and exchanged rings.
The so-called ‘throuple’ worked with a specialist family lawyer who drew up the paperwork and drafted the ceremony so that all three of them were obligated and bound to each other .
While Brynn and Kitten are legally married, Doll is handfasted [that is an anti-Christian, wiccan ceremony] to both so the threesome are as equally married to each other as legally possible.
This whole deal of sapphic (or sodomite) couples/groups having children is really taking the feminist “you can have it all” mentality to the n-th degree, isn’t it? I mean, by embracing the “homosexual” lifestyle you’ve chosen to be sterile, haven’t you? And yet so many of these folks almost seem to have a compulsion to have kids. The better to insure there are more like them in the future? The data shows, children raised in a lesbian environment have the worst outcomes of all (especially boys, whose childhood could best be described as traumatic).
Folks, it will be a diabolical miracle if this “relationship” lasts more than a couple of years. These pairings/groupings tend to be extremely unstable. I read somewhere, I can’t recall where, that the average lesbian “marriage” in Massachusetts, which has had such marriages the longest, lasts 3 years. Throw in a third person, and you have even more instability. It is just a mockery.
The strange names, the wicca……..these are not well people. That they are attention hounds, I have no doubt. Once the attention wears away, it’s likely some or all of the group will break up. And then there will be a single woman with a highly checkered sexual history with a child left to pick up the pieces. Will the aggrieved exes in this case pursue “alimony” and child support against the primary bread-winner in cases like this?
Which brings up another point – one reason why these folks push so very hard for state recognition of their unions is to gain the benefits that legally come from that recognition. Some of the more extreme advocates, in moments of candor, have written about how great it will be for very loose groups of individuals who form a polyamorist “union” to latch onto one or two breadwinners/benefit-providers in the group, and have 2 or 3 or 5 or 8 people getting medical insurance, tax breaks, etc., for being “married” to one or two gainfully employed individuals. The giddiness which surrounded these admissions seemed to indicate this may be no small driving factor in the drive for the further devolution of the state’s view of “marriage.”
At any rate, we knew it would not be long. And as those of us with eyes to see have prognosticated for a long time, kids will be next. There are already efforts underway from those who have pushed for sodo-marriage to drive the age of consent way down, even to 12 or 14.
And that’s the point. There is no bottom to this slippery slope. There is no limit to the evil to which people will stoop when they deliberately reject not only God but the natural law through the conduct of their lives. This culture is pointed in a truly hellish direction. And, as usual, the ones who suffer the most will be the kids. That has been the case ever since this diabolical sexual revolution was unleashed on the world starting several decades ago.
I just don’t know what is staying God’s righteous wrath at this point. But when the chastisement comes……ho boy, we had better all be prepared, it is not going to be pretty.
Almost 40% of women who seek abortions are victims of abuse April 23, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, Dallas Diocese, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, sadness, scandals, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society.
That data according to a post at Jill Stanek’s site. That post also contains data from the UK that says over 1/3 of women there who seek abortions have suffered physical violence from their partner, while Canadian data quoted shows that women who seek abortions are 3 to 4 times more likely to be the victims of domestic abuse than those who do not.
I am bringing this up, not just because it is pertinent information for all pro-lifers and especially sidewalk counselors to keep in their back pocket, but because of a woman my wife and others attempted to counsel outside the abortion mill this past Holy Thursday.
She was a young girl, kind of plain. She was the kind of girl you could tell she didn’t think much of herself. In fact, it was difficult to discern what this girl thought of anything, save for what her boyfriend told her to do.
She did not want to be there. She did not want an abortion. She was very embarrassed. When my wife would try to talk to her, she would repeat, like a mantra……”my boyfriend, my boyfriend, my boyfriend…..” He wanted the abortion. He put her up to this, with promises that everything would be “normal” and good again after she got this abortion. There were some very gentle efforts made to make this girl understand that abortion almost always ends a relationship like this, but she wasn’t hearing that, or anything else. So she’ll be emotionally scarred, her relationship (such as it is) will end, and she’ll have a dead baby to show for it. And her self-esteem will take another huge hit.
How many girls this guy has on a string like this, who knows? We didn’t really get to interact with him, though we saw him, briefly.
Whether he beats her, or ever has, who knows? I don’t think there were any visible signs. A woman doesn’t have to be a punching bag to be utterly dominated by a man. It seems like such should be rare today, but it isn’t. Sometimes those guys are obviously belligerent, even in public. Sometimes they’re not. It’s really hard to tell.
I think that was part of the reason I felt such powerful demonic oppression outside the mill this last week. For some reason, there were more boyfriends/significant others escorting their women to the mills this time, and they were all, to a man (save for one) just as hostile as all get out. I got the strong impression a couple of times the guys were there to make sure the job got done. I overheard one man complain something about the girl “flaking out” to his buddy (abortion as the new male bonding experience), and that he was there to make sure she went through with it this time.
Regardless of whether there is actual physical violence, that a lot of these women are coerced is a known fact. Since Routh St. is now so busy, women are having to park a couple blocks away to walk in, so you as a counselor get to see them up close and personal for way more time than usual. Such strange faces, brazen mixed with sullen with great sadness and a shade of panic thrown in.
Baaah, it’s all so sordid and evil. I’m glad my mom got to see it all, that was her first time at a mill. She said she’s going to try to move the pro-life ball forward at her Anglican church as a result of her experience. I hope so. That’s going to be a delicate task, there are almost certainly some pretty strong pro-aborts at her church.
A chilling report on persecution in Pakistan April 23, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Basics, catachesis, Christendom, disaster, Ecumenism, General Catholic, Holy suffering, horror, persecution, sadness, shocking, sickness, Society.
add a comment
Do I even have to say who is being persecuted, and who is doing the persecuting? I thought not.
A highly disconcerting report on the plight of Christians in Pakistan, where a drunken charge of “blasphemy” against the false prophet Mohammad can lead to a mass pogrom against Christians with burning, looting, and other associated acts of violence. Told by a Pakistani Catholic who is from nearby and saw the after-effects of this violence:
Growing up as a member of the Christian minority in Pakistan, I have often observed how the laws provide inadequate protection for our community, and those inadequacies have dramatically increased. Another incident of vandalism and madness against Christians over allegations of blasphemy has resulted in the burning of houses and more injured innocents. The list of persecutions against minorities in Pakistan is endless and horrible, as I have often witnessed first hand.
One such ruthless incident happened in Joseph Colony, a Christian enclave southwest of Lahore, where a mob set fire to hundreds of homes and two churches on March 9 last year after rumors spread that a young Christian had insulted the Prophet Mohammed. Police officer Multan Khan said the incident started on a Friday when a young Muslim man accused Sawan Masih of committing blasphemy.
Sawan was booked under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code, though it appeared that he had been falsely accused. Police were forced to register a case to placate the mob, a local police official said at the time.
Shortly after his arrest and detention in an undisclosed location, a mob of almost 3,000 people quickly descended on Joseph Colony – led by a barber named Shafiq Ahmed (a close friend of Sawan affectionately known as Bubby) – in search of the alleged blasphemer.
The mob pelted Sawan’s home with rocks before setting it on fire, and then they attacked other homes. Residents, including numerous women and children, abandoned their homes and possessions and fled for their lives. By the time the mob finished its ruthless work, two churches and nearly 200 homes were reduced to ashes.
After hearing about the attack, I made my way with several friends to Joseph Colony near my home. When we entered the day after the attack, I was shocked to see the level of devastation. The sorrow and deprivation was so prominent in that atmosphere that anyone’s heart would have broken to pieces. My eyes filled with tears as I walked through the destruction.
Ashes clung to my clothing. Women, young girls and children sat in the streets mourning their loss – they lost everything from their life savings and homes to all of their everyday utensils, vehicles, everything.
Also among the ruins lay the dreams of parents for their young daughters as looters made off with dowries of jewelry and money saved over many years.
Consumed with rage over alleged disrespect for the Prophet Muhammad, the mob desecrated the sanctity of two Christian churches, burned Bibles and tore up religious books.
There is much more at the link. The Pakistani author of the report continues to hold out hope that the government there will finally start to protect the interests and lives of its Christian minority, but I would not hold my breath over that. Pakistan is 95% muslim and only 1.6% Christian, so the government has typically turned a blind eye to the brutal persecution of such a small minority. Hindus tend to fare better in Pakistan, because they have a powerful advocate just to the east that has twice handily defeated Pakistan in armed conflict and is even better equipped to do so today. The Indian military is a large, well trained, fairly well equipped, and exceedingly disciplined force. Our guys have a lot of respect for them. The Pakistanis, not so much.
As hard as it must be to take – and I have no idea, I can only imagine – this is truly a situation where blessed are the persecuted. If Pakistani Catholics remain faithful and do not resort to violence themselves, enormous fruit will, I pray, result from this persecution. I pray for the hardiness in faith of these poor suffering Christians. May God have mercy on them and support them in all their trials.
The last 100 or so years have seen more blood shed of Christians, for their faith, than any time in modern history, certainly, and possibly any time ever. The past few years have been as bad as any time since WWII for Christians (the Nazis killed far more Christians than they did Jews, both in targeted campaigns, and incidentally). There are persecutions going on all over the world, from pagan sexularist governments in places like Canada to the eternal foe of Christians in islam. May God be merciful and respond to this great flood of martyr’s blood to restore His Church and convert millions of souls around the world!
As the video I have ripped off from CMR indicates, the media has long had a very soft spot in its heart for totalitarian population control measures. This interview from 1940s era BBC of Margaret Sanger is particularly egregious. Note the very domestic setting, the easy set up questions, the lack of rebuttal for answers that are nothing but naked assertion, and the final close up camera angle showing her oh-so-earnest demeanor. Notice she even got the interviewer to call her “Mrs. Slee,” which she never accepted in other venues (remaining, always, Margaret Sanger, her maiden name), a further bid at domestication:
Now CMR is making hay over the fact that, at the end, Sanger appears to say that the best baby is one that doesn’t exist. The edit seems a bit rough, so who knows what got cut off, but if that edit is genuine, wow did Sanger foul off a fat softball of a question. Irrespective of the genuineness of that particular response, we can see what kind of thinking a life of sanctimonious self-aggrandizing pleasure seeking can get up to. Sanger is, after all, a woman who:
- freely admitted marrying for money to fund her pet leftist causes
- freely admitted to constantly cheating on her spouses (she had two) and engaging in what could be described as orgies. Mind you, this was in the period 1900-1920, when such things were essentially unheard of.
- freely admitted to believing white people were/are inherently superior to those of other races and advocating for satanic population control measures, up to and including government-forced sterilization, in order to keep the wrong sorts of people (non-white, non-liberal) from being born. But Sanger was hardly alone, the early 20th century “progressive” movement widely embraced both totalitarian government and the murder of whole swaths of people for the “greater good” of mankind. These progressives were the spiritual fathers and grandfathers of today’s American left, and are essentially indistinguishable from Nazis.
- freely admitted to having no faith whatsoever in a transcendent god, and opposed Christianity in general and the Church in particular for encouraging people to adhere to timeless, God-given morality, which she, again, rejected.
- spearheaded the development of the birth control pill, which she knew would catch on like wildfire, and, more importantly, spur demand for her ultimate goal: legalized abortion.
- was, of her own admission, highly conflicted regarding being a mother. Which, I think, is obvious.
In her private, early writings, Sanger reveals a white-hot hatred for traditional female roles and motherhood in particular. This was one sick woman.
But the BBC tries to present her as Mrs. Rational Forwardthinker. So you can see where they were at, even 70+ years ago. We did not arrive at this point of cultural decay by accident. The culture has died because it was murdered, murdered by people who wanted to be free from having to answer to God – or at least, fool themselves into believing such.
Good luck with all that.
Area abortionists sue to get privileges back April 21, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, Dallas Diocese, disaster, disconcerting, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, sadness, scandals, secularism, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
So we spent half the day on Holy Thursday outside the death house called Routh Street Women’s Clinic. Business was booming. I was pretty defeated by the end of our time there, I saw no turnaways and encountered only truly demonic hostility in all my attempts to engage with the moms and dads seeking to have their children killed. There was one bright spot, a young Hispanic couple was wandering around looking for a place to get an sonogram, and they almost walked into Routh Street. Once in, who knows what lies they might have been told to convince them to get an abortion they weren’t even seeking. I got them into White Rose and they were taken care of in a Catholic manner.
The mill was tragically busy. People were parking literally blocks away. That’s what made the refusal to respond to counseling all the more difficult, we had some pretty good opportunities but I am telling you, I have not seen such hardened hearts in a very long time, if ever. Just rough brushoffs or stone-faced passing by. The men in particular were rough, it’s been some time since I’ve been threatened by a very lost father, but it happened to me twice on Thursday. I was told by another counselor that she had several turnaways, for which I give thanks, but I did not see them.
Anyway, the mill was so busy because they are absorbing business from Robinson’s abortuary, which stopped performing abortions when his privileges were pulled by University General Hospital (UGH) – and God bless them for it. Unfortunately, Robinson lawyered up, bringing in, I am told, some high-priced attorneys from the diabolically named Center for Reproductive Rights to do his arguing for him. Whether it was the slick Manhattan attorneys, or the judge’s own personal predilections, Judge Ken Molberg (remember his name when election time comes around) issued an order demanding the hospital reinstate the privileges for two local abortionists, including Robinson:
In a lawsuit filed Thursday, two Texas abortion doctors allege a Dallas-area hospital revoked their admitting privileges shortly after it became the target of anti-abortion protesters. [That's not at all what happened. What happened is that the hospital found out what the two doctors did for a living, and didn't want to be associated with murder]
The plaintiffs, Dr. Lamar Robinson, owner of Abortion Advantage, and Dr. Jasbir Ahluwalia, the medical director of Routh Street Women’s Clinic, allege that University General Hospital in Dallas revoked their admitting privileges four days after the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled new abortion regulations requiring doctors to have nearby hospital admitting privileges were constitutional. The lawsuit does not seek monetary relief but asks the court to require immediate reinstatement of their admitting privileges. [Yeah, they'll make enough money off the abortions they perform, they don't need any from the hospital]
Dallas County District Judge Ken Molberg granted the doctors’ request for a temporary reinstatement of admitting privileges and scheduled a hearing on the merits of the case on April 30. [I understand Robinson will start performing abortions again April 28. There is nothing in state law that says hospitals have to provide privileges for any "physician" that petitions for them. This judge way overstepped his bounds, there shouldn't be anything to debate.]
New abortion regulations passed by the Republican-led Texas Legislature last summer require doctors who perform abortions to have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of where the abortion is performed, among other terms. The rules took effect in November.
Think of how many hospitals there are in Dallas. There are dozens and dozens within 30 miles of Robinson’s mill near Mockingbird and I-35. That extends even over into Fort Worth. And yet, he can only get privileges at a small start-up hospital, and that only because the hospital was new, did not understand the details of his “practice,” and quickly moved to disassociate themselves from him once they did. That says quite a bit.
Speaking of, the “doctor” that is butchering babies at Routh Street while Abhuwalia tries to get his privileges back is 80 years old. Just top-notch care at those places.
Please pray this reprieve for these abortionists is only temporary! We are making great strides, it is getting very much harder for these abortionists to operate, but they are not going away without a fight.
I tell you what Routh Street needs now is a heavy presence of priests. The demonic oppression associated with that place, always palpable, has grown ever heavier as their business has ramped up. Seeing that place ringed with priests performing at least minor exorcisms, praying, sprinkling holy water…..that would run the demons that power that place off for good. It’s worked before……..
More Minneapolis liturgical abuse – this time, with Moloch! April 15, 2014Posted by tantamergo in Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Liturgy, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, the enemy, the return.
Amazingly, there is a tabernacle somewhere within what I am sure is called “the worship space.” How you like these apples?:
What is the deal with progressives and puppets!
Do you think that leering bull-like figure above looks disturbing like the demonic god moloch/baal? Do they know what used to happen to babies within baal’s searing arms? Human sacrifice?
Oh wait……how many of these folks are perfectly fine with abortion?
Is that supposed to be the Consecration above? Or is that a re-enactment of the Last Supper? Why are their animals in the upper room? Why are their women? This makes no sense. It’s like they crossed the Nativity with the Last Supper. Maybe someone gets this better than I. I’m also not sure how prevalent jackrabbits and raccoons are in the Holy Land.
Why does everything look so hideous and poorly done?
The group that put on this little exhibition is called “Heart of the Beast” puppet theater. Revealing?
Sheesh……die nervous disorder, die. Another 50 kids (or 15, or however many were there) pretty much lost to the Faith forever, invincibly convinced this, this stupidity, this hassattery, is what Catholicism is.
Liturgical Abuse: Blessing pagan stones at Mass in Minnesota April 14, 2014Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Liturgy, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, Spiritual Warfare.
Warning, the music in the video below will require significant amounts of brain bleach to eradicate.
It seems there has been a severe abuse ongoing at Masses in the troubled Archdiocese of Minneapolis for some time. Stones used in what seem obviously to be pagan worship services are blessed during Novus Ordo Masses. According to Tancred at Eponymous Flower, these stones are said to be the bones of the “Earth Mother” and are heated by fire for use in sweat lodges and accompanying spirit journeys:
This profanation you see above? The priest calls it “The Transubstantiation of the Blessed Earthen Rock Ceremony.” It is confirmed this takes place as part of the, ahem, Mass. So, what….the rock turns into our Lord and Savior? That is straight up blasphemy, in addition to being the gravest sacrilege.
First of all, much Native American spirituality is animist and overtly pagan. Secondly, these rituals and their use have strong new age overtones, finding the “god” within, and all that. Thirdly, the entire practice of sweat lodges and “spirit journeys” (the latter very common in new age, which has adopted a great deal of Native American spirituality) is disordered to say the least, since it involves self-hypnosis and opens one up to potential demonic influence. Some might argue the entire pagan, animist practice is demonic.
As such, do we really have to say it has no place in a Catholic Mass? Is this the much vaunted “inculturation” about which we hear so much with regard to disordered/abusive presentations of the Novus Ordo?
Tancred reports this has gone on in Minneapolis for years, and that the Archdiocese is well aware. In a normal time, one would have to ask, how can this be, but we are not in a normal time. In fact, things like this are so common, and exasperation so rife among the faithful, that many have become either beaten down or cynical.
It is difficult not to see scandals like this, and the failure to terminate them immediately, as just one more sign of a profound lack of faith among our Church leaders, and one more tendency towards being far more concerned with men and their opinions, than with God and His just Rights. It is also difficult not to see in this, once again, the perversion of incredibly sacred Catholic practice with some foolish, uninspired, and dangerous “ecumenism.” This seems the trend in almost all Catholic ecumenism: sacred rites are profaned to grant some special privilege to a separated sect or some completely alien (and incompatible) religion, while there is rarely if ever a quid pro quo from the other side. It’s just more banality, more watering down, more humanism, more laziness, more cowering, and more soft leftism.
I’m very tired of it. But I don’t matter. What matters, I wholeheartedly believe, is that it is profoundly offensive to God. And all these abuses will have to be answered for some day.
This priest, Fr. Michael Tegeder, obviously needs a lot of prayers. An aging hippy with a well receded hair line and a sad ponytail…….he’s like a walking cliche of the nightmare post-VII priest. I also strongly suggest making Communions of reparation for this blasphemy against Our Crucified Lord and the Holy Ghost.
Here’s some brainwash:
Mas. If have a hard time seeing that lollipop garbage in the nightmare video at the top as being in the same religion:
I can remember when Colorado was a normal state. Conservative, even. Then hundreds of thousands of Californians, having wrecked their own state, moved in. The state is now really divided, but the leftists have the upper hand in the state government. Lord, please never let that happen here.
The radicals, who have also passed stupid laws against certain kinds of firearms, have a new bill called Senate Bill 175. According to Archbishop of Denver Samuel Aquila, it basically seeks to enshrine abortion in Colorado law forever, and forestall any future pro-life legislation:
If you haven’t yet heard, there is a very troubling bill being debated in the Colorado State Senate next week. Senate Bill 175, touted as the “Reproductive Health Freedom Act,” passed on a party line vote in committee this past Thursday. I am grateful to every person who showed up to oppose the radical bill.
This over-reaching piece of legislation would essentially shut down any attempt to pass life-affirming legislation in Colorado ever again. More than that, it enshrines the “right to abortion” into Colorado law. It’s being praised by anti-life organizations such as NARAL and ThinkProgress as “the first of its kind” in the country and “ambitious.” It enshrines the culture of death into law and ignores science.
This bill would prevent lawmakers from enacting laws such as ultrasound requirements, which we all know—particularly from the work of the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative here in Colorado—have done so much to give mothers vital information about their pregnancy, and thus save countless children from imminent death.
It prevents common sense regulations like waiting periods, restrictions on abortion pills (particularly for minors), and parental notification policies. Advocates of this bill seek the absolute “right to abortion” for girls as young as 10 or 11 without a parent’s knowledge, guidance or advice. Parents are seen as unfit in the moral guidance of their children.
Finally, this bill would eliminate abortion clinic health code regulations, which pro-abortion advocates label as “burdensome.” Remember Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia, and the horrific images and stories of women nearly dying on the abortionist’s table?
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that pro-aborts are trying this. Over the past few years, state legislatures around the country have imposed numerous restrictions on abortion, one of the most effective being that enacted here in Texas just last year.
Abortion is absolutely, 100% critical for the entire sexular pagan program to destroy Christian culture. The very destructive culture that has been deliberately visited upon the former Christendom over the past 100 years requires abortion. All these things: contraception, fornication, adultery, sexual depravity, divorce,etc., require abortion as their backstop. It is fornication, “living together,” hooking up, etc,. among “heterosexuals” that drives the entire sexular pagan agenda. There simply are not, as of yet, enough sodomites, polyamorists, and other perverts to destroy a culture. But getting the vast majority of “normal” people, even “Christian” people, to engage in these immoral activities has been the very vehicle of the sexular pagan revolution.
Fornication sells. Fornication/adultery backed up with the use of contraception has led millions to leave any true semblance of the practice of Christianity, and into lives of wantonness that are unprecedented in their scope and banality. But since contraception often and always (over enough time) fails, abortion is 100% absolutely vital to the entire sexular pagan leftist program. The entire advance of leftism in the West has been due to decay in sexual morality. So the entire leftist program depends utterly on abortion.
So, they are willing to do anything, give up anything, to keep abortion around. And since there has been much recent success in nibbling away at baby killing at the state level, they are now seeking to stop that through their own legislative activity. I take this as a very serious attempt to stop all progress in pro-life laws, at least in Colorado. Which is a shame, because Colorado did not used to be a state that would embrace such a thing, and I know there are still many, many good, faithful souls there.
Archbishop Aquila asks for everyone to take some time to pray that this bill be stopped. You can also contact the Colorado Catholic Conference, or, better yet, look up the bill’s supporters in the Colorado Senate and contact them directly. The bill’s two sponsors are Senators Andy Kerr and Jeanne Nicholson.
Perhaps you could, in your charity, offer up a Rosary that this horrific bill be blocked and defeated. Or a Novena. There have been many small steps to see abortion made more difficult to obtain around the country. There has been a good deal of progress in the past few years. But that could all be undone should measures like this gain support, and, God forbid, one day wind up at the Supreme Court, where anything can happen.
As a final aside, I will also pray that we will one day see our own good Bishop Farrell offer a Mass directly outside a mill, as Bishop Sheridan just did, or at least have a constant presence of priests offering prayers, performing exorcisms, and the like. A 20 mile Good Friday procession is a wonderful thing, but one Mass offered outside one of these mills would be such a blow to satan and his many eager human acolytes, that the pro-aborts may never recover.
That’s something I’ll keep praying for. And I’ll also pray that Archbishop Aquila grow ever more faithful and participate more and more in the restoration of the Faith.

Cruella Deville has outlived her usefulness for the Zero. She’s been thrown under the bus, like so many before her, ostensibly due to the manifold failures of Obamacare:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has resigned from the Obama administration, a move that comes just months after Americans started signing up for health insurance coverage under Obamacare.
President Barack Obama accepted her resignation earlier this week and will nominate the Office of Management and Budget’s Sylvia Matthews Burwell, 48, as the next head of the HHS, the New York Times reported.
The new head of HHS is just a younger version of the same:
Is a hair brush too much to ask? What?
Burwell is not Catholic, at least. So maybe she’ll actually have more respect for Catholic belief than an invincibly convinced heretic.
What am I saying?!? She’s a lefty, and already, during the government shutdown theater of last fall, she was the one that directed stupid, draconian steps – like closing national monuments that cost nothing to operate – in order to amp up the pressure on Republicans. She’s a Clinton loyalist, so I think we know her. She’s obviously pro-abort to the core, or she wouldn’t have gotten the job.
Meet the new boss, same as the old.
Does Sebelius have a reputation left to detract from?
