When Defiance of Marriage Law Was Hailed as Heroic

September 4, 2015 World News Comments Off

Kim Davis, the county clerk in Kentucky who will not issue marriage licenses to anyone because, she says, she cannot in good conscience issue them to same-sex couples is being sharply criticized for lawlessness and abuse of her office. Consider a few of the precedents for her conduct: In 2004, Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco directed city officials to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, in defiance of California state law. In 2004, Mayor Jason West of New Paltz directed  

Good News . . . Brief update on Father John Corapi

September 1, 2015 World News Comments Off

A bit of good news to share: A reliable source has informed me that Father John Corapi, a popular priest among orthodox Catholics who departed public life after a tumultuous period a few years ago, remains in the priesthood and is re-establishing his spiritual life. There’s no indication he’ll be returning to public life anytime soon, if ever. However, it’s nice to know that Father Corapi can at least be a quiet prayer warrior during this extremely difficult time in the Church and world. I won’t go into the particulars about what transpired in the past – it’s water under the bridge – and I’m sure there’s information on the Internet (some of it more reliable than other

9th Shocking Video: Planned Parenthood Sells Intact Aborted Babies, One “Just Fell Out” of the Womb

September 1, 2015 World News Comments Off

The Center for Medical Progress released a new video this morning — the 9th in its series of videos catching the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts. This latest video catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb. The ninth video in the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal focuses on Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), the small and secretive company similar to StemExpress that has harvested and sold fetal body parts at Planned Parenthood clinics longer than any other entity. The video features undercover conversations with Dr. Katharine Sheehan, the long-time medical director of Planned Parenthood of…Continue Reading

All priests will be able to forgive sin of abortion during Jubilee for Mercy

September 1, 2015 World News Comments Off

September 1, 2015 7:33 AM Vatican City, Sep 1, 2015 / 06:33 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In a new set of pastoral guidelines for the upcoming Holy Year of Mercy Pope Francis has made some significant moves, allowing all priests to forgive the sin of abortion and granting SSPX priests the faculty to forgive sins. “One of the serious problems of our time is clearly the changed relationship with respect to life,” the Pope said in a Sept. 1 letter addressed to Archbishop Rino Fisichela, President of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, charged with organizing the Jubilee. In today’s society “a widespread and insensitive mentality” has become an obstacle to welcoming new life, with many who don’t fully understand…Continue Reading

If You Still Support Planned Parenthood, You Are Simply Not A Decent Person

August 26, 2015 World News Comments Off

Another Planned Parenthood video has been released. I promised I would write about every new video that comes out, so here is my write up on the latest. Please read and share. I don’t usually ask you to share things I write, but in this case, especially because fewer and fewer are writing about them, I am asking. We need to keep this topic going. We need to keep it “trending,” as much as I hate to use that term in relation to something like this. So share this. The big headline of the newest installment is that, according to the words of Planned Parenthood officials and people who work for these “procurement” companies, sometimes babies are born ALIVE and…Continue Reading

“Catholic” Group Sends Cakes to Thank Planned Parenthood Staff After It Sells Aborted Babies

August 24, 2015 World News Comments Off

Apparently, Catholics for Choice want their friends at Planned Parenthood to know how appreciated they are since they will be “harassed” tomorrow at the protests across the country regarding their organ harvesting business.  As LifeNews previously reported, tens of thousands of pro-life advocates are planning to protest at over 300 Planned Parenthood locations in response to seven videos showing their top executives haggling over the cost of aborted babies’ body parts and discussing ways to alter procedures to obtain organs for harvesting. Unbelievably, the newest video catches the abortion company dissecting the brain of a live baby after an abortion. In a press release, the “Catholic” group writes, “Women’s health clinics across the country will again be harassed by the…Continue Reading

Facebook’s very (very) suspicious ‘trending’ Planned Parenthood story

August 23, 2015 World News Comments Off

Update Aug. 20, ’15 at 7:54 AM EST: I woke up this morning, and lo and behold, the “trending” news topic had changed. It now reads, “7th video critical of organization released by anti-abortion group.” That’s more like it. I wasn’t particularly surprised to see this afternoon that “Planned Parenthood” was listed as the #1 top-trending topic on Facebook’s trending bar. After all, my Facebook newsfeed was packed to the seams with posts about the latest video, released this morning, featuring the gruesome testimony from a former StemExpress employee about how they harvested the brains of a baby while its heart was still beating at a Planned Parenthood clinic

Questions raised after pro-life activist Twitter accounts suspended without warning: one now restored

August 23, 2015 World News Comments Off

ONTARIO, August 20, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — A pro-life activist campaigning against Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s abortion extremism as well as a pro-life organization on a mission to show the violent reality of abortion through large graphic billboards had their Twitter accounts “permanently suspended” weeks apart after the social media giant said they were both violating rules regarding “harassment and abuse.” Alissa Golob of Campaign Life Coalition, who helped run the “no2Trudeau Campaign,” told LifeSiteNews there was no warning when her account with about 4,000 followers was suddenly suspended last week right while she was composing a tweet. “One minute I was tweeting
