(LifeSiteNews) — A Fox news host has spoken out in defense of the unborn Saturday, calling for an end to abortion in a powerful and emotional pro-life segment during Fox News Primetime.

Fox News host Ben Domenech compared compared current abortion policies in the U.S. to those of communist China and North Korea and pleaded on behalf of all unborn children for an end to America’s radical abortionist regime. Domenech’s voice broke toward the end of his broadcast as he was overcome by emotion while reading some abortion testimonies.

“We have as a nation one of the most radical abortion regimes in the world,” Domenech said. He argued that the Mississippi law, which bans abortion after 15 weeks and which many pro-abortionists describe as “extreme,” is closer to the policy in place in many European countries that ban elective abortion after 12 weeks of pregnancy.

On the other hand, in many American states, abortion is still legal in the third trimester and even up to the point of birth. A state of affairs which Domenech compared to policies in place in communist China and North Korea, two countries he characterized as America’s “moral equals.”

Domenech went on to explain that the reason why the abortion regime in the U.S. is so radical as opposed to other western countries is that many Americans “have been willing to look the other way.” He also pointed to a “vast industry of powerful forces” working very hard to push for the abortionist agenda. An industry so powerful in fact, Domenech argued, that those who oppose or challenge it often suffer extreme backlash from the left.

He described criticizing the abortion regime as not only placing oneself “at odds with the most powerful activists’ groups” but also as “tak[ing] on the woke corporatists, Hollywood, the corrupt media, big tech and just about everybody with power in America today.”

“It’s safer to attend sacrilege in a Cathedral than abortion rallies,” Domenech argued.

The conservative commentator also accused Roe v. Wade of having “short-circuited” the legal debate on abortion and blamed the pro-abortion left for “gaslighting the country into believing things that aren’t true.”

“They pretended they wanted abortions to be rare, they claimed they didn’t profit from them, they denied they sold organs, they refused to acknowledge the science of what we know about the development of unborn babies,” said Domenech, also calling to mind the tragic impact of abortion on America’s most vulnerable families and communities, particularly the black community, a fact that the pro-abortion left purposefully refuses to see. “More black babies are aborted than born in New York City every year, and that’s fine with them.”

Domenech also established a connection between the abortionist agenda and the success of a number of left-wing politicians and Democrats in their rise to power, saying the push for abortion is often a vector of success on the left. Domenech cited former President Bill Clinton and former Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York as examples of this, and also alluded to President Joe Biden’s attacks on the Hyde Amendment.

The Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal funding for abortions except in cases of incest or rape, came under attack a number of times during Biden’s presidential campaign, as he slowly but surely shifted his position on the matter, the more so as he drew closer to the November election.

“Why do you think Joe Biden flipped on the Hyde Amendment?” asked Domenech before pointing out that Biden’s new position on abortion clashes with the his claim to the name of Catholic.

PETITION UPDATE (9/3/21)

Following the US Supreme Court's decision to allow Texas' Heartbeat Law to go into effect, Joe Biden made the announcement that he would initiate a "whole-of-government" response against the new pro-life statute which could ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

This is yet another, outright confirmation of Biden's openly pro-abortion policies, policies which have the main objective of ensuring that women will continue to be able to kill their own children without impediment.

This anti-life, anti-Catholic stance needs to be urgently addressed and condemned by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

For the good of the Church, for the good of pre-born babies, for the good of the faithful, and, indeed, for his own good, Joe Biden needs to be publicly rebuked by the bishops and excommunicated until such time as he repents from his pro-abortion policies.

Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks the bishops of the United States to act in unison to exclude Joe Biden from Holy Communion for his scandalous promotion of abortion - the murder of the innocent.

After signing, please take a moment to CONTACT the offices of the USCCB to politely, but firmly, encourage the Conference to take the necessary steps to exclude from Holy Communion public officials who continue to show blatant disregard for innocent human life and the Church's teaching.

The USCCB's Office phone number is: 202.541.3000

Thank you!

"No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." - Matthew 6:24

In the lead-up to their meeting in mid-June, we call on the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to exclude Joe Biden and other “Catholic” politicians (like, Nancy Pelosi) from Holy Communion over their public, obstinate, and scandalous promotion of abortion.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks the USCCB to act to stop the abuse of the reception of the Holy Eucharist by politicians who promote the murder of innocent pre-born babies.

We know that making a decision to exclude public figures from Holy Communion is not easy. But, sometimes, this is the only way to make them understand the error of their ways, and to preserve the Church from serious scandal.

Indeed, Canon Law (Canon 915) declares that those who persist in manifest, grave sin should not be admitted to Holy Communion

Beyond that, at this point, public excommunication appears as the only suitable response for Biden's obstinate, public and grave sin of promoting abortion.

In doing so, we do not hold ourselves up as judges over Joe Biden's eternal soul, but we encourage the bishops to make known one of the consequences of public and obstinate support of abortion by our 'Catholic' politicians.

The fact is, in terms of the manifest, grave sin of abortion, Joe Biden is as bad as he said he would be before the election.

Therefore, it is cold comfort that the USCCB is only preparing to discuss this issue only now.

But even now, if the USCCB publicly excommunicate Biden for his pro-abortion stance (as well as other pro-abortion politicians), the Conference could reclaim some of the moral authority which they lost by their largely silent assent to Biden's candidacy.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition, now.

Since Joe Biden was sworn-in on the 20th of January, he has wasted no time in signing orders and bills which facilitate the destruction of unborn human life.

  • In one executive order, Biden rescinded the Mexico City Policy prohibiting the federal government from spending taxpayer monies on abortion and the promotion of abortion.
  • Biden also signed (instead of vetoing) the COVID relief bill, which, for the first time in 44 years, contained funding for abortions in America, using taxpayer dollars.
  • Biden said that he wouldn't defend Hyde, and he hasn't.

And, if he and the Democratic Party get their way, a lot more of the same regarding abortion is on the way.

Strong action must be taken lest anyone, especially young people, be confused by the scandal of a "Catholic" in Biden's position aggressively promoting abortion, enabling the killing of innocent human beings.

American rank-and-file Catholics don't want any more compromise and equivocation from the Bishops Conference on this "pre-eminent" life-and-death issue.

We want clear action, not twenty more years of dithering and "dialoguing."

50 million babies have been lost to abortion in the U.S. since Roe!

So, we will NOT accept any more lives lost as a result of dithering and "dialoguing." [**Please see "Notes" below about how it has been reported that some senior U.S. clerics are trying to prevent this discussion from even taking place.]

And, we will especially NOT accept one life lost to abortion by politicians who claim the Catholic Faith, but who promote grave evil. God forbid!

With all due respect to these bishops, they diminish the Holy Eucharist and their high office, as well as cause grave scandal to the faithful, by not imposing public canonical penalties on a man who is promoting mass murder of the unborn against the constant teaching of the Church.

The bishops are now at a crossroads and must choose either God or mammon.

We call on them to choose God and choose Life!

And we also continue to encourage those brave, true and good bishops who have done well to warn Amercian Catholics about the perils to the unborn and the Faith resulting from Biden's promotion of abortion!

SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks the bishops of the United States to act in unison to exclude Joe Biden from Holy Communion for his scandalous promotion of abortion - the murder of the innocent.

After signing, please take a moment to CONTACT the offices of the USCCB to politely, but firmly, encourage the Conference to take the necessary steps to exclude from Holy Communion public officials who continue to show blatant disregard for innocent human life and the Church's teaching.

Notes about USCCB's June Meeting:

For nearly twenty years, the US bishops have been dithering about whether or not to excommunicate pro-abortion politicians by formally withholding Holy Communion from them.

Their indecision on this gravely scandalous matter is a scandal in itself, but one of the biggest obstacles has been internal opposition from senior U.S. bishops.

And, although the faces have changed in the last 20 years, their morally-and-intellectually-challenged arguments against excommunication have not changed.

Liberal bishops of the USCCB say that excommunicating Biden (for example) would divide the Church, divide the bishops, and would politicize the reception of Holy Communion.

Indeed, in the name of “unity,” it is reported that some senior U.S. clerics, including Cardinal Blase Cupich (Chicago), Cardinal Wilton Gregory (Washington, DC) and Cardinal O’Malley (Boston), have been working overtime to prevent any substantial discussion of so-called “Eucharist coherence” (that is, what qualifies as worthy reception of Holy Communion).

It is also reported that at least 57 other American bishops allegedly joined these Cardinals in a recent letter to the Head of the Bishops Conference, Archbishop Gomez of Los Angeles, to try to pressure him to drop the planned discussion at the full meeting of bishops in June.

And now, even the Vatican is getting involved, with the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith suggesting that even more “dialogue” is needed.

These same clerics may mistakenly believe that any attempt to suppress the objective connection between a politician’s promotion of abortion and his unworthy reception of Holy Communion will fool anyone.

But, it will not.

Rank-and-file Catholics are not stupid and can smell compromise a mile away, and we’ve had enough.

With all due respect to the Cardinal, bishops, and the Vatican…those who fail to act diminish the Holy Eucharist and their high office, as well as cause grave scandal to the faithful, by “dialoguing” with a man who is promoting mass murder of the unborn against the constant teaching of the Church.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging the bishops Conference to take action at their June meeting to exclude pro-abortion Joe Biden and other abortion-promoting “Catholic” politicians from Holy Communion.

“Every Sunday, his head bowed in his church, he knows who run the left,” said Domenech, “he wanted to be president, and he was willing to make a deal to do it.”

Mainstream media was another example cited by Domenech in the list of key players within the abortionist movement in America. The news host argued that the American media have displayed “more corruption on this topic than perhaps any other” and observed that according to news channels such as ABC, NBC, or CBS, “pro-life women simply do not exist.”

In spite of all this, Domenech followed up with a message of hope.

“But now, at long last, something is happening. The energy in the pro-life movement is like nothing we’ve seen before,” he said, describing how “decades of ultrasound pictures posted on refrigerators” have contributed to change the culture on abortion, and how women encouraged by the abortion lobby to “boast about killing their children” now come across as “desperate and sad.”

Domenech mentioned the women who are “brave enough to talk about miscarriage and loss” as a way to change people’s mind on the question of abortion, hinting at his wife and former co-host of American daytime talk show The View, Meghan McCain, who testified of her own experience after she suffered a miscarriage back in 2o19.

The Fox News host also remembered children with Down Syndrome, who are often the first victims of the abortionist agenda in many countries. “When Iceland says they’ve eradicated Down Syndrome, good people cringe, because they know what that really means,” he said.

But continuing on a note of hope, Domenech mentioned the recent efforts by some states to restrict abortion, as well as the hope entertained by many pro-lifers of Roe v. Wade being overturned by the Supreme Court in the near future.

“There is today renewed hope among those who believe that every unborn baby has a right to life that the Supreme Court may at long last reopen this significant question for us to decide, as citizens and states,” he said.

Domenech became emotional toward the end of the broadcast when he quoted a passage from the memoir of former communist agent Whittaker Chambers who in Witness described how his wife pleaded with him not to kill her baby after she found out she was pregnant.

“What we are discussing tonight is the most fundamental question for us,” said Domenech. “Whether the unborn lives that take root here in America are unique persons with the right to draw breath and blossom, or whether they are non-persons, lives unworthy of life, ‘human weeds’ as planned parenthood founder Margaret Sanger called them, whose destruction is a ‘public good.’”
