Commentary on Dec. 11 News

Dear Readers,   The volatile Canadian political solution has been at least temporarily defused much to the relief of a frightened Canadian public. What this all means, if anything, for desperately needed greater protection for life and family and conscience and religious freedoms, remains to be seen.   On two stories yesterday there was essential contact info missing.  The story on the positive review for the homosexual propaganda film by the official movie reviewer for the US Bishops was missing contact info for Vatican authorities; and the story on the dissent on life and family by the National Association of […]

Comments on News of the Day – The US Election, What Happened?, Proposition 8, a Huge Victory, Worris

Dear Readers,   The US election – what happened, why did it go this way and what do life and family loving Americans do now? We have much to report to better arm you for the days ahead for your role in the culture wars.   One huge victory was the passage of California Proposition 8. The importance of that vote cannot be overemphasized. It also puts the lie to the claims that the culture wars are over and Obama won because Americans are no longer interested in social conservative principles. McCain lost for a number of reasons, one being […]

Uruguayan Legislators Approve Abortion, Despite Veto Promise from President

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman MONTEVIDEO, November 5, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Uruguayan legislators in the nation’s Chamber of Deputies narrowly approved the legalization of abortion today, in a 49-48 vote, after twelve hours of contentious debate. The law received the approval of the nation’s lower legislative house despite growing opposition to abortion in Uruguay, as well as a firm promise from the nation’s president to veto any such measures.  Pro-life groups have cried foul during the process, claiming that the tally in an earlier vote was altered, and that many procedural violations have been committed. The bill will now pass to […]

South Dakota Abortion Ban Defeated

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski SIOUX FALLS, S.D., November 5, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Results from yesterday’s election indicate that South Dakotans have again rejected a ban on abortion by voting down Measure 11 by a 55-45 margin. In 2006 the state Legislature passed a bill that prohibited all abortion in the state except in those cases where continuing a pregnancy would pose a medical threat to the mother’s life; opponents of the bill, however, successfully circulated petitions to place it on that year’s general election ballot. That measure was rejected by voters in the 2006 election by a margin of 56-44 […]

“The Killing Must End”: Christian Defense Coalition to Launch Major Post-Inaugural Pro-Life Campaign

By Kathleen Gilbert WASHINGTON, D.C., November 5, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Christian Defense Coalition has today announced “The Birmingham Letter Project,” a major pro-life wake-up call to the country scheduled to take place in the nation’s capital upon the inauguration of Barack Obama.  Obama’s presidential victory immediately galvanized the pro-life movement, as the new president-elect’s advocacy of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) threatens to uproot all the legal victories of the pro-life movement of the past 30 years to restrict abortions on a state and federal level. “It is clear that Mr. Obama will continue the tragic violence against […]

With the Help of Catholics…Obama’s Victory

Commentary by Deal Hudson November 5, 2008 (insidecatholic.com) – When the U.S. bishops hold their annual meeting in Baltimore next week, one item on the agenda will be approval of the new Order for the Blessing of the Child in the Womb.   The blessing, according to the USCCB, “was prepared to support parents awaiting the birth of their child, to encourage in the parish prayers for and recognition of the gift of the child in the womb, and to foster respect for human life within society.” If approved by the bishops, the Blessing of the Child in the Womb will […]
