When I watched this video I was struck by how much the word “choice” has come to mean one thing – death for the unborn child!  I truly believe all women should have a real  choice but that usually means choosing between at least two, viable options.  When women choose abortion it is because they feel they don’t have a real choice and that’s where the problem lies.   We must support pregnant women so they can feel they can give the best to their child in terms of material things but also the time and love that every woman wants to give to their child.



The Irish situation regarding abortion and the rights of the unborn child seem to be under attack constantly.  Today’s recent article https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/un-committee-tells-irish-gvmt-to-hold-referendum-to-overturn-abortion-banhttps://www.lifesitenews.com/news/un-committee-tells-irish-gvmt-to-hold-referendum-to-overturn-abortion-ban on Lifesitenews.com shows the full extent of how much bullying and pressure is being exerted on Ireland to step into line and offer the liberal abortion options to Irish women.  It is hard to believe that an organisation such as the United Nations can be allowed to bully, another country as they have done as reported in the above article.  What has happened to a democratic country’s right to make their own laws?? Of course it is not as simple as this, I know, but the issue of the prolife stance of this country seems to worry the UN and other organisations (like Amnesty) an awful lot.

What is refreshing to read is that people like Cora Sherlock, deputy of the Pro-life campaign are standing up and putting the pro-life position in a firm and articulate manner, which shows the UN for what it really is.  That’s them told!


Why does the Church celebrate the birthday of John the Baptist?  Because “John surpasses all the prophets, of whom he is the last” (CCC 523) He “goes before (the Lord) in the spirit and power of Elijah” (CCC696).  John the Baptist “is the Lord’s immediate precursor or forerunner, sent to prepare his way”, who inaugurates the Gospel… from his mother’s womb”(CCC523).  John the Baptist “proclaims the imminence of the consolation of Israel; he is the “voice” of the Consoler who is coming”(CCC719).  “With John the Baptist , the Holy Spirit begins the restoration to man of “the divine likeness” (CCC720)

 


Quotes for Life

Marissa Barone made this using famous pro-life quotes to create the image.


What a fantastic advocate Maddie is.  From the moment her mum was told that her baby had Downs Syndrome, Maddie has received unconditional love and support.  We must make sure that everyone knows that a prenatal diagnosis is just that and support is readily available for mothers who discover their baby has a disability so they don’t feel alone and isolated.  This video can help with that process.


baby, womb, pregnant, woman“We are faced with only one question. Are we talking about an object, or might it by any stretch of the imagination be a person? If we cannot be sure of the answer, at least we may pick up a clue or two from the word of the Lord which came to Jeremiah: ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you for my own; before you were born I consecrated you, I appointed you a prophet to the nations.’ To God, at least, Jeremiah was already a person. For my part, I will try to regard whatever bears the marks of humanity as God’s property and not mine.”

Kimberley Sings

We featured this lady Kimberley Henderson on a previous post talking about how close she came to aborting her fourth child, Vaida Everly, but she didn’t and how thankful she was she turned away from abortion.  Now her life has taken another turn after she posted a video of her singing to her daughter on to Facebook and she was invited to record the song.
