A group of nuns in Germany has revived the age-old practice of taking in babies through a flap in the door so that mothers can abandon unwanted children without fear of identification. The sisters of Our Lady of the Love of the Good Shepherd at the St Gabriel cloister in Munich have an enlarged letter box in their front door, with a warm bed on the inside and an alarm to alert the sisters to a “delivery”. A woman “posting” her child there will find a letter from the nuns thanking her for leaving her baby in a safe place […]

US NEWS ROUNDUP

But Cheney has said there must be room in the GOP for contrary views […]

HEROICALLY PRO-LIFE GERMAN BISHOP DIES

BERLIN, July 24 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Archbishop Johannes Dyba of the Fulda diocese in central Germany died peacefully in his sleep Saturday night at 70.

Archbishop Dyba referred to abortion as the “children’s Holocaust.” The uproar among German Catholics regarding abortion counselling and the handing out of certificates which could be used to obtain abortions was foreign to […]

TORONTO, July 24 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Abortionist Henry Morgentaler, the father of abortion in Canada, has again spouted his controversial theory that abortion has lowered the crime rate. He is in effect saying that crime is being reduced by killing off those babies still in their mother’s wombs who, because of their circumstances, might turn out to be criminals. He is nonetheless taken seriously by some mainstream media. The Saint John Times Globe, The Toronto Sun, The Whitehorse Star, The Winnipeg Sun, and of course the Vancouver Sun among others uncritically carried Morgentaler’s diatribe Friday. Morgentaler states that “fewer unwanted children […]
