honors pro-abortion Activist!
Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion." -Source
For those of you that frequent my site, you know about my "Roman Catholic Church and Abortion" page wherein I document how Roman Catholic hospitals have been performing abortions all along and the only reason the Popes claim to fight against it is because it keeps their political foot in the door while at the same time make billions think they are fighting for the rights of the innocent children while actually doing nothing. Tactics like this have been the norm for eons wherein political leaders will play the part of the advocate for the people so as to prevent an outcry of the people
But for some, what the Pope just did seems very odd. But then he did the same thing when he promoted homosexuality. Since 98% of the Vatican prelates are homosexual, not many people were shocked when he did that since many Catholics know about the Vatican's homosexual agenda. But to address the reason he publicly honored a pro-abortion activist; do you recall my videos wherein I documented the fact that all Roman Catholic prelates are card carrying devil worshipers? Not only have they been caught red-handed inside Vatican walls holding a worship service for Satan, and not only was the Vatican building itself designed as an upside-down cross, they actually built an audience hall that resembles the head of a serpent outside and where the Pope and his political comrades stand before the people inside the building, it is designed to look like they are speaking from inside the mouth of the serpent between its two fangs on the platform.
But why did I mention all that and how does being a Satanist connect with being for abortion? Do you recall the video I did back in August of 2015 wherein I share the written testimony of an ex-Satanist who admitted he performed Satanic rituals in abortions clinics because according to the church of Satan killing a child is the best offering one can give to Satan? This is why this Pope is honoring a pro-abortion activist. His dying god demands it and the Pope knows he will be granted even more power in the coming days for his loyal obedience to Satan in openly sanctioning the killing of innocent children as a blood sacrifice unto his dying god. In short, Satan is about to appear as Jesus Christ on earth and he needs to make sure those he controls are actually that loyal to him.
Philosopher who backs legal abortion appointed to Vatican pro-life academy
Francis has appointed 45 new ordinary members of the Pontifical Academy for
Life, according to a statement on the Vatican website. They include
Nigel Biggar, who has said that he thinks the limit for legal abortion should
be 18 weeks. In a dialogue with fellow philosopher
Peter Singer in 2011,
reported by Standpoint magazine, Biggar said: “I would be inclined to draw the
line for abortion at 18 weeks after conception, which is roughly about the
earliest time when there is some evidence of brain activity, and therefore of
consciousness. In terms of maintaining a strong social commitment to preserving
human life in hindered forms, and in terms of not becoming too casual about
killing human life, we need to draw the line much more conservatively." –Source
If he was serious about
"not becoming too casual about killing human life" he would draw the
line at conception and declare that is when God is involved. (See Isaiah 48:8;
Jeremiah 1:5 & Luke 2:12) As
per the written Word that says He names us in the womb and so any Bible
believer would never even consider abortion because it is murder. But Nigel
Biggar is Roman Catholic and so truth is not a prerequisite to any dogma of
Rome. Hence the reason they
hate Sola Scriptura with such a passion. This is also why the Roman Catholic Vatican
approves and even funds abortion clinics in their hospitals. That fact
alone shows it's not about the so called Vatican dogma that abortion is wrong.
(which it is) Rome only uses the abortion card when it is politically feasible
for them to do so; and it has served them well over the years when making sure
certain unjust laws get passed as well as good laws get tabled. But let me get
this straight, and I hope some Catholics ask similar questions.
The Popes of Rome declare
they are against abortion, but yet they not only have hospitals killing babies
all over the world, they also appoint pro-abortion killers to their staff as
this article confirms. They declare they are against all the killings in Islam,
yet evidence has recently been unearthed that shows they wrote the Koran that
teaches the Muslims to actually kill Christians. The fact the Muslims kill in
the exact same way the Popes of Rome did during the Inquisitions shows the same
demons are at work here. They also declare they are against molesting little
boys, yet they have declared
in writing as early as 60AD to having an issue here and continue to allow Bishops to
protect molesters to this day. They say they are against everything Adolph
Hitler stands for yet they
funded and promoted Roman Catholic Adolph Hitler into power so as to
further the political spread of Vatican socialism
worldwide. They claim they are against walls being built to prevent Muslims and
Mexicans from entering the USA yet the
Vatican built a wall to prevent Muslims from entering their city not too
long ago and still maintain that wall's structure to this day. They declare
Jesus Christ is Lord yet they
demand every Roman Catholic also worship both Mary and the Popes, in writing
and on camera. They
declare the true Sabbath is the Biblical seventh day Sabbath in writing yet
they demand in thousands of
articles we must keep Sunday as Sabbath today. They declare the Bible is
the Word of God yet they
declare their vile hatred of it in writing and even call it a poisoner of souls
as well as a dead and speechless book. They declare Mexicans should not
partake in voodoo practices in Africa yet their local priests join
them each time they have national exhibits of same as well as parades. They
claim homosexuality is a sin yet 98%
of the Vatican priesthood is homosexual, 80% of the real estate in San
Francisco is own by the Vatican and literal
homosexual brothels are owned and operated by Vatican prelates and have
been for centuries, not to mention the fact that AIDS started in the Catholic
priesthood. They claim their flock must pray to God yet they demand in their Catechism
they must pray to Mary and so called saints that have been dead for eons.
As you know I can go on and
on for days, but as I stated earlier in a YT comment, I am not going to repost
12,000 pages of facts all over again. So, with that all being said.. is it any
wonder Roman Catholic people stay in such a church as this? It allows them to
declare sin to be evil while at the same time embracing it as their favored
past time. Was this not prophesied in more than a few areas of the written Word
of our God as to how people will demand "smooth things' be preached unto
them in the last days so as to stay in sin while still claiming to be Heaven bound?
The fact 1.2 billion people stay in a church with so much evidence against it
proves this hands down. Seriously, when they look at the very priests that
molest their own children they see them claiming to STILL be Heaven bound after
committing such vile sins and so the Catholic in the pew figures, if they are
still headed to Heaven with all their many off the chart evil actions and all
we as Catholic do is drink, do drugs, fornicate and commit adultery from time
to time, we must also be guaranteed Heaven. But what did Jesus say to religious
leaders and people with such a mindset as this 2000 years ago?
John 15:21-22, "But all
these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not
him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not
had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin."
May God have mercy on their souls.
Pope Francis: ‘Let Us Pray for Babies in Danger of Being Aborted’
"After his weekly Angelus
prayer Sunday in Saint Peter’s Square, the pontiff said that he joined
the Italian Bishops in “supporting bold educational action in favor of
human life. Every life is sacred!” “Let us promote the culture of life
in response to the logic of disposability and a declining population,”
he said. “Let us join together and pray for babies who are in danger of
being aborted, as well as for people who are at the end of life. All
life is sacred!” he said. “Let no one be left alone and may love defend
the meaning of life.” –Source
Let me ask you this. If Satan himself was to
manifest before your eyes or even move about you in a permissive manner
in your life, how do you suppose he would go about doing that? He would
appear as an angel of light, right? Of course, that's exactly what Paul
stated in 2 Corinthians 11:14 when he said, "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
And so Satan would never come to you in his true form dripping with
rotted flesh with millions of flies following after him in the hopes of a
quick meal. No, he will come to you as your best friend, a gentle
stranger, a so called Christian and as we see here a Pope.
Now yes, the title Pope is a Pagan title wherein it depicts he is a devil worshiper. In fact, his office was outed years ago holding Satan worship services inside Vatican walls and this particular Pope
is worse than most in that he is trained in the bloodthirsty deceptive
art of Ignatius Loyola. For those unaware, Ignatius Loyola founded the blood curdling Jesuit order.
And so, when this Pope asks for prayers to save the babies the people
of the world need to take off the rose colored glasses and see him for
who he really is. He's not only a Jesuit who took the most evil oath ever taken by man, he is the man of sin and a bold faced liar.
Besides all the other insane statements he has made in the last few years about Jesus failing on the cross (TWICE!) to card carrying Atheists gaining Heaven,
he is now acting as if abortion is more than he sees it as per the
written Word of God. What I mean is, abortion to the Popes of Rome is
nothing more than a political foot in the door. They kill just as many babies in Catholic hospitals
than any other hospitals and clinics do. In fact, the one Pope he
recently canonized as a Saint, that being the infamous Karol Wojtyla
(aka Pope John Paul II) who sold the poison gas to the Nazis to kill Christians, Jews and blacks, stated in his prophesied and confirmed bogus apology that his church hierarchy was sorry for all the millions of babies they killed, that are still being found to this day buried under Catholic Convents.
Something else most fail to realize about this and the last few popes
is, they will lie about some in their number who claim to be devout
Catholics who have stated in writing that they no longer believed in God
so as to keep their ministries pumping in the cash to the Vatican.
That's right, he literally quoted Mother Teresa in this speech as if she
is someone to emulate but she openly denied God before all and even
allowed herself bowing in worship before Buddha no less! See proof here.
When the man of sin speaks, his speech will be
filtered with the lies of his dying god Beelzebub. Nothing more, nothing
less. And we have God's truth filled Word to back that up cover to
Pro-abort ‘Population Bomb’ author to speak at Vatican
"The Vatican has invited the undisputed father of
the modern, pro-abortion population control movement to present a paper
at an upcoming Vatican-run conference. Dr. Paul Ehrlich, author of the
1968 bestseller The Population Bomb is
scheduled to speak in Vatican City during the February 27-March 1
conference that will discuss “how to save the natural world.” The
Stanford biologist champions sex-selective abortion as well as mass
forced sterilization as legitimate methods to curb population growth. In
his 1968 book, Ehrlich went so far as to defend forced abortion,
writing: “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory
population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory
abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the
population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the
society.”..Organizers of the Vatican-run conference predict that if
effective steps are not taken to reverse so-called man-made “global
climate change,” then up to 40 percent of “all biodiversity on Earth”
will be destroyed “by the end of this century,” including a “majority”
of species of plants. …With the invitation of Ehrlich to address the
conference, how the Pontifical Academies understand “social justice”
takes on a sinister aspect." –Source
Sinister indeed! But then this is the Roman Catholic church that killed hundreds of millions during their first global reign between the years 538AD to 1798AD just as prophecy predicted. The fact the Vatican has been killing hundreds of thousands of innocent Christians annually via their henchmen most know as Islam and the fact the Vatican has quite a few hospitals killing babies every day
shows us the prophecy regarding this "sinister" beast in Rome has never
changed and never will change. The only difference will be in how
society accepts her bloodthirsty acts. And they will in fact allow for
them across the board.
Don't believe me?
Have you heard any main stream preachers demand the Vatican stop helping Islam invade every country on earth? Have you heard any preachers demand they stop killing Christians under the guise of Islam?
Or have you even heard any preachers ask the Vatican to close their
abortion clinics all over the world? Nope, nary a one. But, I just
posted an article the other day wherein quite a few so called religious
leaders have not only declared Planned Parenthood a good organization
worth promoting, they literally said Planned Parenthood was doing a "sacred work."
And every single Roman Catholic that steps into the abortion clinics to
prevent stretch marks or even the loss of a lover agree it's a "sacred
work" because after killing their innocent screaming babies,
their lovers stay with them and their stretch marks never appear. So,
getting those very same women and their lovers to go along with forced
abortion is not going to be an issue at all since legalized murder is no
big deal in their eyes, and so the man of sin in Rome
has decided to invite the very man who wrote the book on how to do just
that into the Vatican to speak! And still some so called religious
leaders like SDA Ben Carson call him a holy man?! Not to mention of course the infamous SDA Conference Pastor BT Rice calling the Pope "your holiness" during a blasphemous Catholic Mass on camera years ago.
It's as I've been saying for the entire 30+ years since leaving the Roman Catholic church.
They don't give a hoot about abortion clinics at all. The fact they
operate them confirms that hands down. But the main reason they play
both sides of the fence on this one is so they can have their hot button
foot in the door at every hall of Congress. Any foot is better than no
foot at all as it allows them to play the politicians as puppets. They
know all about how using abortion can cripple or advance any political
agenda they want as long as they control the very Senators they need to
on that one issue who they command to vote yay or nay on any other
political issue. It doesn't even have to be about abortion. All they
need is a pro-life senator in their hip pocket who has agreed to worship the Pope and so any Bill brought to Congress can be manipulated via that very same puppet Senator
many poor souls out there believe that life doesn't begin until the
baby is born, or at the very least within the first 22 weeks or so. Yet
here in this video it was proven in a scientific laboratory that life
actually begins at the very moment the egg is fertilized. No, this won't
stop some from killing their babies in abortion clinics
or even taking the morning after pill that kills the baby many hours
after life starts. But it will grant those trying to help some see when
life begins one more spark of truth that may find some fertile soil in
their hearts that leads to even more seeds being watered so yet
'another' life it sparked into existence. That being of course the born
again moment that leads to eternal life. –Source
Judge: Can't force Catholic hospitals to abort babies
"A federal judge has rejected an ACLU demand that
he order Catholic hospitals to perform abortions in violation of church
teaching. ...No law requires religious hospitals and medical personnel
to commit abortions against their faith and conscience, and, in fact,
federal law directly prohibits the government from engaging in any such
is nothing more than political double talk as well as propaganda for
the Vatican in Rome. How so? What the article does not mention is that
there are many Roman Catholic hospitals performing abortions
all over this country and the world. In fact the Vatican actually
admitted their hospitals have been killing babies all along and John
Paul II in his so called 'mea culpa'
also admitted the Catholic hospitals as well as the convents themselves
have been killing babies for centuries! Stranger still is the fact the current Pope asked all people in September of 2015 to condone abortions performed by Roman Catholic Women in the past, further confirming Catholics have no issue with killing their babies.
So.. why the double talk?
Vatican is a political monster and they must keep up appearances or no
one will believe it when Satan claims to be Jesus standing next the Pope
when that day finally gets here. They need all the people to think the
Pope is a moral man and what the churches under him do is in no way
reflective towards his lack of leadership. This is why they keep
disavowing certain satanic activities of their flock in the global arena
while at the same time command the priests move the people to commit
the same evil acts anyway. Like the Catholics that whip themselves or nail themselves to crosses for the Pagan festival of Easter.
The Vatican claims they don't approve; yet the Catholic people perform
this blood gorged act each and every year, and have been doing so
unencumbered for centuries. I used to be Catholic
and I know how the local priest will in fact promote such things as
this while at the same time knowing full well the Vatican will 'claim'
publicly that it's wrong to do. Catholicism truly is the absolute
definition of Babylon.
Catholic Nancy Pelosi:
When human life begins has 'no basis' in public policy
"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., refused to
answer a reporter’s question about when human life begins during a press
conference on Thursday. ...No, listen, I want to say something to you,” Pelosi
said. “I don’t know who you are, and you’re welcome to be here, freedom of this
press. I am a devout practicing Catholic, a mother of five children. When my
baby was born, my fifth child, my oldest child was six years old. I think I know
more about this subject than you, with all due respect.” “So it’s not a human
being, then?” the reporter asked. “I do not intend to respond to your questions,
which have no basis in what public policy is that we do here,” Pelosi said."
...Planned Parenthood is under investigation by several states and congressional
committees due to allegations raised by undercover videos released by the Center
for Medical Progress that affiliates of the nation’s largest abortion provider
are selling aborted fetal body parts to researchers for profit. ...During a
recent interview with CNN, Pelosi said the Center for Medical Progress “should
be investigated.” Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood’s chief executive, once
worked as Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff."
Now do you see why prophecy says the Whore of Babylon's (the Roman
Catholic church) main fruit is in fact confusion? Roman Catholics all over
the world believe their leaders are pro-life. But when you hear what the Pope
says about allowing women to kill their babies during the "holy year" and
still receive absolution, many Roman Catholic hospitals do in fact kill babies, the infamous Pope John Paul
II admitted in his "mea culpa" that the Church of Rome has been involved in
abortions (among others crimes) for centuries and now all high ranking
politicians that are Roman Catholic are also pro-abortion, you begin to see why
this church is prophesied to confuse.
That being said...
Let me try and clear up some of the confusion as to why Rome
says one thing in their churches and another in national as well as global
politics. It's because the Church of Rome is not a church at all. It's a political
organization run by Satan himself so as to both soil the image of Christ while
at the same time use Christianity as a way to keep their foot in the door of
political discussions across the board. The fact Rome's dogmatic
structure is by overwhelming majority Paganism (of which they
admit in writing) and their political reach is global wherein they have control over
175 nations at present, confirms they have not the fruit of Christianity.
Their fruit is and always has been lies, or as most call it today, politics.
The fact the Roman Catholic politician boldly ignores their
own church doctrine proves even they know it has nothing to do with faith,
Catholicism or even what some of them claim as Christianity. It's all about
power. In fact, they admit this in writing as well.
- "If Catholics ever gain sufficient numerical majority in
this country, religious freedom is at an end. So our enemies say;
so we believe" -The Shephard of the Valley, journal of the
late bishop of St. Louis.
- The old Protestant culture is about at the end of its
rope... Why can't we make the U.S. Catholic in legislation, Catholic in
justice, aims and ideals?" -Father F. X. Talbot, editor of
America, official jesuit magazine for the U.S. statement in New
York Globe Dec. 14, 1930
- "But Constitutions can be changed, and
non-Catholic sects may decline to such a point that the political
proscription [ban] of them may become feasible and expedient.
What protection would they have against a Catholic state?" -The
State and the Church, pp.38,39, by Miller and Ryan, imprimatur of Cardinal
(click here for more quotes on this
This is why many politicians are Roman Catholic and many of
them convert into Catholicism. They know doing so will grant them much power
politically. The fact their church doctrine says one thing, and they do the
exact opposite, and their own Popes, prelates and priests don't correct them
publicly when they say things like Pelosi just said, confirms it is as their
predecessors have stated in writing.
Catholicism is nothing more than the vehicle that prophecy
clearly says will allow the Popes in Rome to take over the world when their New World
Order is realized. Yes, prophecy also says their global rule will be very
short lived, (see Revelation 17:12) but as is obvious, Satan has them believing
otherwise. After all, how hard is it to get the leaders to believe lies when he
has already been able to get 1.2 billion of their constituents to believe the
lies as well? And no, this does not count all the rest in the world that are
obviously wondering after the same beast in Rome as we speak.
By the way..
Have you ever seen the word "POLITICS" defined? It's
actually a compound word. The word "poly" comes from the Greek word meaning
"many," and the word "tics" is defined as blood sucking insects. When defined as
per the entire meaning of the compound word itself we then get the definition
that sates, Politics = Many blood suckers. Is it any wonder the mother of
Roman Catholic church is also prophesied to be bloodthirsty?
Catholic hospital allegedly denies Michigan woman life-saving sterilization procedure based on religious belief
This isn't about "abortion" but it does show the bold
hypocrisy of Roman Catholic Hospitals when it comes to "birth
"A Michigan woman suffering from a brain tumor is
threatening legal action against a Catholic health system that is allegedly
refusing to tie her fallopian tubes— a procedure that could be life saving for
her— based on religious belief. ...As a Catholic healthcare system, we follow
the ethical and religious directives of the Church. Beyond that, we can't
comment on this patient's particular case.”
I only need to make a quick comment here as I know for a
fact that this hospital is actually declaring a bold faced lie. How do I know
that? Before I came
to Christ I was Roman Catholic, as was my wife. During this time we had 5
children as Roman Catholics. Every time my wife gave birth we went to a Roman
Catholic hospital to have the baby because we were in an area wherein only Roman
Catholic hospitals were available. Each and every time my wife had a baby, the
Roman Catholic hospital doctors and nurses always asked her if she would like to
have her tubes tied. So I have to ask, why is it this Catholic hospital is
saying otherwise? One can only imagine what they're up to.
Congressman describes 'evolution' from pro-life to pro-choice
"In response to his critics, Ryan said, "They're not there when I have to look
in the mirror in the morning, and be honest with myself. They don't have to live
my decisions the way that I have to do. And I think it's very presumptuous of
them to claim to know what's in my heart." --Sadly what Congressman Tim Ryan
said there is typical of many Catholics and of people in other denominations as
well. He looks in a mirror and sees righteousness in himself, but leaves God out
of the equation. I read the op-ed he wrote for the Akron Beacon Journal where he
justified his stance and only cited Scripture once in doing so. Unfortunately
the one scripture he quoted was out of context and is the same scripture
unrepentant sinners always seem to misquote. Matthew 7:1 "Judge not, that ye be
not judged." The unrepentant sinner never reads that in context. They claim it
means it's a sin to judge others. Wrong! It means if you are committing a
particular sin, don't think you're justified while at the same time calling out
someone else for the exact same sin. Think of it like this; if a man is cheating
on his wife, he better not think he's holy while he condemns another man for
committing adultery. In this instance, I have no issue condemning Tim Ryan's
evil abortion stance and I'm fine with being judged by that same standard. I'll
judge and be judged; no problem. After all, it is also written in John 7:24,
"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." In other
words, if a man walks up to me drunk, I don't have to judge him drunk. He told
me he was drunk by his wobbly walk, slurred speech and foul odor. By the way,
have you ever noticed people who use that verse do in fact want you to judge
them? But they insist you judge them in a positive manner so as to help them
stand approved in their heartfelt shame. (See Isaiah 4:1) Anyway, politicians
flip-flopping on abortion is so common these days, why would I draw attention to
this story. Wasn't Clinton pro-life as Governor of Arkansas and then
pro-abortion as president? It's all in the demographics! I shared the article
mainly because of the source. This article is from National Catholic Register
online, a website that is obviously geared towards Catholics. This is an open
propagandized attempt to shame anti-abortion Catholics into violating their
conscience so as to go with the flow of killing babies. You do realize your church
leaders have no issues with abortion, right? It's only the ace of their
sleeve that is used in their political back room discussions wherein your rights
and my rights are discussed and removed. If your heart truly belongs to Jesus,
He is calling for you to come out of that church just as much as all the others
in apostasy. Please choose today whom ye will serve. As for me and my house, we
will serve the Lord.
Mother of Four Was Fired From a Catholic Hospital Because of Her Pro-Life Views
"In July 2013, Montserrat Balselles was dismissed from her job at a Catholic
hospital because she didn’t want to participate in abortions and openly
expressed her pro-life views." --What does supposedly pro-life Jesuit Pope
Francis have to say about this? Nothing apparently, as he's too busy trying to figure out how to convince people global
cooling is really global warming. This woman and her four children became
homeless when she lost her job. Since Francis is all about social justice (er.. um..
socialism) and helping the poor, maybe he'll relocate her to the Vatican.
The wealthiest city in history which spared no expense in helping the homeless
by ... wait for it ... by installing three showers for the homeless to use under the
colonnade of St. Peter's Basilica, along with shower's at a dozen Roman parishes
which will no doubt be under the supervision of the most notorious
band of child molesters in history. Where did the Pope get the money to pay
for these showers? Maybe from the profits from abortions at Catholic hospitals? Please keep
this woman in prayer as the story says she "describes herself as a Catholic
activist." How sad her loyalty to the Catholic Church keeps her in the church
that kicked her (and her kids) to the curb. One can only hope there is a follow
up to this story one day where she describes herself as an ex-Catholic turned
Sabbath keeping Remnant Christian. What a testimony that would be!
hospitals commit – and U.S. bishops condone – live-birth abortion
© 2004 WorldNetDaily.com
Posted: September 15, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern
The news was a real bummer. A reporter named Tom Szyszkiewicz, who writes for
the Catholic publications, Our Sunday Visitor and the National Catholic
Register, was calling to tell me he had discovered two Catholic hospital systems
were committing the induced-labor abortion procedure – live-birth abortion – on
The bad news warped to bizarre when Szyszkiewicz said these hospitals were
waiting until babies were 23 to 26 weeks gestation before aborting them – i.e.,
until they were of viable age – so they could say these weren't abortions at
all, but simply labor inductions and, thus, sanctioned by the Catholic Church.
"That's crazy," I thought. Most hospitals I'm aware of that commit LBA
do just the opposite: They make sure to abort babies before 23 weeks –
the most recent viability cutoff date according to the American Heart
Association and American Academy of Pediatrics – to avoid the ethical and legal
dilemmas of deciding whether to resuscitate a baby they just tried to kill.
The Catholic hospitals' abortion strategy seemed even more risky when taking
the Born Alive Infants Protection Act into account. It states that live-born
babies, no matter what their gestational age or circumstances of birth, are
"persons." According to the 14th Amendment, "persons" born in the United States
are automatic citizens who cannot be "deprive[d] ... of life, liberty, or
property, without due process of law; nor den[ied] ... equal protection of the
This means live-aborted babies can't be cast aside to die in hospital soiled
utility rooms, or drowned in buckets of water, or sealed to suffocate in
biohazard bags. They must be medically assessed and cared for just like wanted
Last week, I contacted both hospital systems to make sure I wasn't missing
something. I wasn't.
Loyola Health System in Chicago, and Providence Health System on the West
Coast and Alaska, both commit live-birth abortion.
But they don't like the word, "abortion." They call what they do, "early
induction of labor."
Webster's Dictionary defines abortion as, "the termination of a pregnancy
after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the
embryo or fetus."
So now "termination of pregnancy" is called "early induction of labor."
Euphemisms ... what would abortion proponents do without them?
Other Catholic hospitals may also be involved. Szyszkiewicz reported in the
March 7, 2004, Our Sunday Visitor that Providence is the 10th largest U.S.
Catholic health system, and "spokespersons for the other nine ... were either
vague about their hospitals' practices or did not return calls."
Loyola and Providence say they are acting in accordance with the 2001 U.S.
Bishops' Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services that
states, "For proportionate reason, labor may be induced after the fetus is
Theologian James LaGrye from the bishops' doctrinal office said the term
"proportionate" is used "for situations in which some grave risk would be
incurred if an action were not taken to avoid it," wrote Szyszkiewicz, who
added, "LaGrye said the mental health of the mother 'is a reason' to perform
In addition to having "mental health" concerns, Fr. Jack O'Callahan, staff
ethicist at Loyola, said they are trying "to ward off the physical complications
of bringing to term a child who is not going to live anyway."
But, euthanizing one's handicapped child is not the solution to maintaining
mental health, nor do handicapped babies normally spread voodoo vibes to make
their mothers sick.
What about the physical and mental complications of abortion?
Even fatally ill babies, left to develop until term, give their mothers the
gift of lowering their risk of breast cancer. Contrarily, mothers who abort
dramatically increase their risk.
Aborting mothers also stand a much greater chance of ending up in hospital
high-risk maternity departments next time they get pregnant. Their forcibly
stretched cervixes will have difficulty keeping subsequent babies inside until
But I digress.
The Aug. 19 New England Journal of Medicine reported that the smallest known
surviving preemie just celebrated her 15th birthday. In 1989, Madeline Mann was
born at Loyola Hospital at 27 weeks, weighing 9.9 ounces. She is now a violin
playing, roller-blading, high-school honor student.
Doctors at Loyola delivered Madeline early by Caesarean section after
determining she might fare better in their care than in her mother's uterus.
Oh, the irony.
Jill Stanek fought to stop "live-birth abortion" after witnessing one as a
registered nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill. In 2002, President Bush
