“There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know.”
(remarks of President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, Feb 5th 09)
It’s 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. In Washington DC 200,000 people gathered for “March for life”. Obama was invited, but instead decided to keep his promise and released a statement about “women’s right to choose” (CNN text here).
Catholic Culture is having 30 days perpetual (24/7) Rosary prayer for the Obama administration, that it may be animated by an authentic perception of the Good, leading it also to oppose intrinsic evils such as abortion, euthanasia, fetal stem cell research, human cloning and homosexual marriage.
FDA approved human embryonic stem cell study and Indiana -R congressman Mike Pence has filed a bill that would cut the federal government funding send to Planned Parenthood.
And all of that just in the last few days.

“National Sanctity of Human Life Day” was announced today by president Bush. Reagan, Bush father and son made these annual proclamations, while Clinton did not. Will Obama? I doubt it.
All human life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique, and worthy of protection. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, our country recognizes that each person, including every person waiting to be born, has a special place and purpose in this world. We also underscore our dedication to heeding this message of conscience by speaking up for the weak and voiceless among us.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 18, 2009, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. I call upon all Americans to recognize this day with appropriate ceremonies and to underscore our commitment to respecting and protecting the life and dignity of every human being.
This is a statement of consciousness, truth and allegiance to God, who is the giver of life. This is powerful.
We will have three very dramatic days this week:
Jan 18th, National Sanctity of Human Life Day
Jan 20th, Presidential Inauguration
Jan 22nd, March for life (on the Mall, Washington, DC)
we call upon:
All governments to interpret the Universal Declaration of Human Rights properly such that:
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person (Article 3)
Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family (Article 16).
The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State (Article 16).
Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance (Article 25).
Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children (Article 26).
Wszystkie rządy do interpretowania Powszechnej Deklaracji Praw Człowieka prawidłowo, tak aby:
Każdy człowiek miał prawo do życia, wolności i bezpieczeństwa swej osoby
Mężczyźni i kobiety, bez względu na jakiekolwiek różnice rasy, narodowości lub wyznania, mieli prawo po osiągnięciu pełnoletności do zawarcia małżeństwa i założenia rodziny
Rodzina była naturalną i podstawową komórką społeczeństwa i miała prawo do ochrony ze strony społeczeństwa i państwa (Artykuł 16).
Matka i dziecko mieli prawo do specjalnej opieki i pomocy (Artykuł 25).
Rodzice mieli prawo pierwszeństwa w wyborze rodzaju nauczania, którym objęte będą ich dzieci (Artykuł 26).
Gift cards have become very convenient and easy way to buy gifts. This year someone thought of a new way of giving, which shows that the more civilized we get, the more sophisticated ways we invent to cover up what otherwise would be obviously called an abomination.
This year Planned Parenthood in Indiana decided to give holiday vouchers. You can get them in 35 clinics across the state, “for services or the recipient’s choice of birth control method”. They are really concerned about your health and well being.
Chrystal Struben-Hall, Vice President of Planned Parenthood of Indiana, said,
“They really are intended for preventative healthcare. We decided not to put restrictions on the gift certificates so it’s for whatever people feel they need the services for most.”
They call it unusual, yet very practical, defending the purpose of the vouchers saying, that these gifts will be used for those, who are not able to afford reproductive health care. They underline that the vouchers should not be used for abortions, yet they did not put any restrictions on them.
