An Out Pouring Of Love From Around The World For The Priests Of Rockford

If I saw an angel and a priest, I would bend my knee; first to the priest and then to the angel.  St. Francis of Assisi

Rockford IL May 31, 2010 – Pro-life Corner would like to thank the thousands and thousands of people from across America and around the world who have read about the heroic battle our Priests of Rockford are waging for the lives of Children in the womb and the souls of those involved in abortion.

 He who honors a priest honors Christ; he who insults a priest insults Christ.  St. John Chrysostom

 Scores of comments have come into our web-site in grateful admiration and praise for these holy men who have responded with love and kindness to the hatred of the Rockford abortion establishment.  Promises of prayers, Masses being offered, donations to be made in honor of these priests to the poor have come in from thankful people across the country.

 What so many thousands of people have also seen is the real motivation behind the secular medias attacks on priests.  It has nothing to do with the sins of an extremely small number of priests, but everything to do with a hatred for God and a promotion of the culture of death.

 These priests of Rockford have stood strong against the bigotry and hatred of the Rockford abortion mill with the holy response of these priests resulting in the lives of many children being saved from a brutal death inside the Northern Illinois Women’s Center.

 To honour the priesthood is to honour the great High Priest, Jesus Christ.  To see Christ in the priest is a sure way of finding God.   Father James, 0-F.M. Cap.

 Thank you again to our readers for your out pouring of love to these holy men of God.  The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered in the City of Rome by Father Yammani Danam for the intention of all the readers of Pro-life Corner.

 Below are a few prayers we can say to support our priests in their mission of love for Jesus Christ and His people.

 

 

 
DAILY PRAYER FOR PRIESTS
 
Have you ever considered adopting in prayer a brother Priest?  "Mary Help of Christians" has suggested the following:
 
·Ask Mary to assign him to you.
·Love him like a real brother.
·Daily pray and sacrifice for him.
·Shield him from temptation.
·Beg God that he avoid giving scandal.
·Call him back to fervor.
·Become a saint that he may become one.
·Pray that Mary be a tender Mother to him and find him good friends.
·Ask for a new vocation to replace him.
 
Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS
 
Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service, that they may perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.
 
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard, upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing.  For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end.  Amen.
 
 
A GOOD PRIEST

Effects of abortion on America.

Does a woman’s “choice” to have an abortion affect others in society? 
The following article was submitted  by one of our readers, AnnaRae.  She shares her thoughts with us today.

 
 
By AnnaRae
              Does abortion really have an effect on others or does it only affect the woman who has one?  We’re always hearing it’s a woman’s “choice” or “it’s my body, I can do what I want with it” but is that really true?  Does a woman’s “choice” to have an abortion affect others in society?  Let’s take a look.
            When a woman decides to have an abortion we all know it takes the life of a human being;  that person needs only time and nutrition to grow, be born, and eventually using the same ingredients, time and nutrition, become a mature human being.  How many babies who have been aborted in the last 37 years might have grown up to be doctors or scientists who would have found a cure for cancer, heart disease, or any one of a myriad of diseases that plague us today?  Would some have been involved in peacemaking efforts worldwide and had the gift of bringing peace to our troubled world?  How many wonderful nurses, doctors, lawyers, teachers, future mothers and fathers, priests, nuns, ministers, etc. have had their lives snuffed out for one woman or man’s convenience?  It’s a staggering thought, isn’t it?
            Now for more effects on society in general.  How many abortions are we indirectly paying for by the government’s financial support of Planned Parenthood or Medicaid abortions or some other form of taxpayer funding to kill babies?  At first, the premise was abortion on demand for the first trimester; now it’s up until the moment of birth, partial birth abortion.  What kind of result has that wrought?  Take a look at the child abuse increase in the US alone.  It has skyrocketed since legalized abortion, some figures cite a rise of over 400%!  That’s mind boggling!  I personally know of a doctor who cares for critically ill children and the cases he’s told us about ( naturally without full details or names or places) make me ill.  Recently a seven month old child was brought to the hospital, a victim of abuse.  The perpetrator of the abuse was the mother’s boyfriend, who was not the father of the child.  She left the child in his care to run out to the store; when she returned the child had to be rushed to the hospital where she later died.  Will this man suffer any consequences for this horrendous murder of an innocent child?  Probably very little, if any.  It would seem in today’s world that the death of a child is nothing to be concerned about; after all, they’re only an inconvenience and can be aborted at any stage of life, so why not when they’ve already been born?
            Why are we allowing this carnage to continue?   Apathy has taken hold of too many people.  They seem to feel that any problems in the country are someone else’s responsibility, that they have no need to do anything.  Many feel the government will take care of all their problems, so why should they worry?  Others simply don’t care about anyone but themselves.  Apathy, selfishness, irresponsibility; all these are part of the reason this once great nation is now suffering in so many ways and it will not improve until we wake up, shake off our indifference and stop the slaughter of the unborn.
            This, my friends, is where abortion has led us.  This is the slippery slope that pro-lifers have been warning the world about since abortion was decriminalized in 1973.  And unfortunately it does not stop there.  The next step, as we have seen with Terri Schivo, is the murder of the ill, the elderly, and those people society deems “unworthy” of continuing their life.  Grandpa is getting old and needs heart surgery?  Why waste the medicine, time, and money on him since he’ll probably die within the next few years anyway.  Then the next step will be to  give him a shot to put him to sleep permanently.  Life is now only to be lived by the healthy and the young.  We forget all the contributions older citizens have made for humanity.  Moses led the Israelites out of captivity when he was in his 80’s.  Grandma Moses took up painting in her 80’s and became world renowned.  Colonel Sanders was near 70 when he started his KFC empire.  Many of our greatest world leaders were in their 60’s and 70’, for example, Sir Winston Churchill, Mother Theresa, Pope John Paul II, and Ronald Reagan.  They led by courage and example and have inspired millions of people.  Life is not just for the young; it’s to be lived until God calls us home to our eternal reward.
            Those of us who are involved in the pro-life movement in one way or another have seen or suffered many set-backs; abuse both physical and verbal, threats to ourselves and our families, financial hardships, emotional stress and the loss of valuable time because we go to the clinics to pray for an end to abortion.  This time could have been used for something else but we choose to try to serve our God by doing our best to save His precious unborn babies.  Oftentimes we get discouraged, but to paraphrase  Winston Churchill:  Never give up, never, never, in anything great or small, large or petty – never give up.
            We must continue to fight the good fight and keep the faith.  Pray unceasingly, do penance and actively do anything of which you are capable to help save even one unborn baby from a horrible and painful death.  One day abortion will cease to be in our nation and we will once again be a great and good country.  And more importantly, when we are called by God to come to Him, we can hope to hear Him say “Well done, my good and faithful servent.”

Attacks On Catholic Priest

Rockford Abortion Mill Continues Vicious Attacks On Catholic Priests
As number of abortions decline in Rockford, the abortion mill seems to be (rightly) blaming the spiritual power of Priests.

 
 
Rockford IL,  May 29, 2010  - In September of 2008 a group of Catholic Priests began praying every week at Rockford’s abortion mill special prayers of the Church that the abortion mill be cleansed from evil.  Immediately, the pro-life women who sidewalk counsel at this abortion facility noticed a dramatic decline in the numbers of mothers coming for abortions and a tangible rise in the numbers of mothers who choose life at the abortion mill driveway. 
 
An unofficial count of mothers entering the mill within a month of these devout Priests praying showed the abortion totals to be cut at least in half. This is also when signs started appearing in the mill windows attacking Catholic Priests. 
 
On Friday May 29th, the abortion mill sank to a new low even for them.  As a Priest was quietly praying the prayers of the Church accompanied by a seminarian, someone inside the building that houses the Northern Illinois Women’s Center put a sign that clearly stated, "F…. Your Perverted Priests."
 
 
 Catholic Priests have also had to endure personal insults from the abortion mill landlord and security guard.  The car of one Priest has been egged by an abortion supporter at this mill.  A Priest has also had a hand-written sign taped to his car while he was quietly praying on the sidewalk in front of the mill.  The sign read, "I Rape Children."
 
 
 
One thing is certain.  This abortion facility and its supporters know one of the major reasons their numbers of dead babies have gone down is because the committed, faith-filled, and courageous Catholic Priests are praying consistently that the evil that surrounds and drives the abortion industry is replaced with the grace of Jesus Christ.  In Rockford these Priests and their prayers have saved countless lives and souls.  That’s why this mill hates and attacks them in this vicious manner.
 
As one Rockford area pro-lifer said, "This group of Priests has prayed at this mill no matter the weather, intimidation, and mocking threats they have faced.  In the spirit of Jesus Christ, they have responded to these attacks with prayer, humility, and love."
 
A Rockford man said of one of these Priests, "Last winter on a day with the wind chill well below zero, Father was in prayer on the sidewalk with his coat open.  Everyone told him he needed to cover up better, but Father knew that people entering the mill needed to know a Priest was there.
One young Hispanic woman looked at Father, saw his collar, and saw him praying for her.  She immediately left the mill and never returned."
 
It is the hope of the Rockford Christian community that Rockford city officials will look into the long and hate- filled history of the abortion mill and come to a decision that this kind of bigotry is not acceptable in our city.
 
As for these holy men who pray and work for life and for an end to the demonic inspired culture of death in Rockford,  we owe them our support, prayers, and grateful thanks for leading us in this battle against sin, Satan, and death.
 
 
In the person of Christ the Head . . .
1548 In the ecclesial service of the ordained minister, it is Christ Himself who is present to His Church as Head of His Body, Shepherd of His flock, High Priest of the redemptive sacrifice, Teacher of Truth. This is what the Church means by saying that the priest, by virtue of the sacrament of Holy Orders, acts in persona Christi Capitis:
It is the same Priest, Christ Jesus, whose sacred person His minister truly represents. Now the minister, by reason of the sacerdotal consecration which he has received, is truly made like to the High Priest and possesses the authority to act in the power and place of the Person of Christ Himself (virtute ac persona ipsius Christi).
Christ is the Source of all priesthood: the priest of the old law was a figure of Christ, and the priest of the new law acts in the Person of Christ.
1549 Through the ordained ministry, especially that of bishops and priests, the presence of Christ as Head of the Church is made visible in the midst of the community of believers. In the beautiful expression of St. Ignatius of Antioch, the bishop is typos tou Patros: he is like the living image of God the Father.
 
 
 

Sign in Abortion Mill Window Could Tell Mothers "Even Jesus Hates You."

Offensive sign located a few feet from abortion mill door marked "main entrance."

 
Rockford IL, May 28, 2010 – A sign in a window of the building that contains the Northern Illinois Women’s Center has a sickening message that mothers could possibly see when arriving at the abortion mill.  The hate-filled sign has a picture of Jesus sticking up his middle finger at passers-by with the words "Even Jesus Hates You."
 
This sign is located just a few feet away from a door to the mill marked "main entrance."  Pro-life sidewalk counselors were shocked, that even considering this abortion mill’s history of bigotry they would place a sign with this message near their new main clinic entrance.                
The letters of the words are not large but can be seen and read by any mother entering the abortion mill through this door.
 
Thankfully, not every mother entering the mill would be exposed to this degrading sign. 
Many women who pull into the parking lot use the entrance in the back of the parking lot. 
But any mother who gets off a bus at the stop on Broadway or walks in from Broadway or 10th Street could see the hideous sign.  The sign is also located near the door where mothers who want a cigarette occasionally stand outside the building to smoke.
 
One sidewalk counselor said this morning, "What are they trying to do to these women, break their spirit?"  Another pro-lifer commented,
"it looks like their message to a woman facing the most difficult decision she will ever make in her life is Jesus hates you, go ahead and kill your baby."
 
It is not known if this disgusting sign is directed at pro-lifers, the people who live near the abortion mill, at women considering abortion or all of the above.  What is known for sure is any person using the abortion mill entrance near this window could read this sign.  The effect of this kind of demoralizing sign and the message "Even Jesus Hates You" on a confused, lonely, or scared mother entering the mill could have tragic short and long term consequences for her child’s life or her ability to heal after an abortion. 
 
When told about this sign and its message, one Rockford woman who had an abortion here many years ago said, "After my abortion I felt as if Jesus couldn’t love me.  That is what these abortion pushers want you to think so you kill your baby, and they make money.  Through the love of good Christian people and the Church, I have found forgiveness and the faith that Jesus does love us even when we commit a terrible sin."
 

Thank you Rockford community.

All praise, honor and glory be to the Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true man.

 
The staff at the Pro Life Corner wish to thank our readers for their kind words in support of our mission of educating our community concerning the evils of abortion in Rockford. 
We would like to point out that we at the Pro Life Corner are nothing more than the messengers.  If something that we reported has a positive effect on our community, then praise and thank our God for His graces.  We thank God every day for you pro-lifers who put the light of Christ on the lamp stand by going to the mill to pray and to rescue those who are being led to slaughter.  As you work to save the unborn, continue to pray with a sincere heart for the conversion of the abortionist as well as Mr. Webster, and their assistants.  Let us never forget Saul, Mary Magdalene, Dr. Nathanson, Carol Everett, etc..  God, in His grace, changed their hearts; if we raise up our hearts, our minds, and our prayers into one voice for the conversion of all at the Rockford mill, it will happen.  Let us pray that all who are involved in the process of killing the unborn will open their hearts to the Holy Spirit so that the killing will end and their eternal souls will be saved. 
Fervently pray and work to save His babies, babies He has sent into this world to fulfill His divine mission.
May our Heavenly Father richly bless you and your families.
 
Sincerely,
The staff of the Pro Life Corner

An estimated twelve children were intentionally killed inside the Northern Illinois Women’s Center this past week;    Alphonse andhis Christian faith;     Go Into The Whole World And Proclaim the Good News;      It’s Not "What Would Jesus Do", but "What Will Jesus Do." ;     Is Rockford’s Abortion Mill Safe and Legal?;     Abortionist under Investigation for Forced Abortion Says he “Lies” to Patients;     Judge Denies Motion to Dismiss Suit Against Aurora Planned Parenthood;     Unborn Baby Gives British Mom a Thumbs Up in Ultrasound Picture…..

 
 
On Wednesday May 26, an estimated twelve children were intentionally killed inside the Northern Illinois Women’s Center.
This was a day we were expecting to see huge numbers of abortions because the mill was closed last Friday.  While twelve children murdered in Rockford is a tragedy beyond description the fact that more weren’t killed is a testimony to the power of prayer.  Especially considering the fact that it was the late term abortionist who traveled to Rockford today to stop the beating hearts of God’s children at Rockford’s abortion mill.
 
Throughout the morning, hour after hour, pro-lfers came to stand and pray at this place of death in our city.  Countless more Christians prayed throughout the city at work, Church and at home.
 
The prayers that have have been continuously flowing for over 25 years at this place of sorrow have produced countless miracles of life and love.
 
One of the beautiful things about these prayers is they are coming from humble faithful people who this abortion mill continually scorns. 
 
"He is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured."  Colossians 4:12
 
Take for example an elderly man who prays at Rockford’s abortion mill every Wednesday and Friday morning.  He looks like an average person but he has lived anything but an average life.  His name is Alphonse and he was born in Czechoslovakia.  As a young man at the time of the Communist revolution in his country he was "asked" to join the Communist party and refused because of his Christian faith. 
 
Alphonse was sentenced to five years in a communist prison. Alphonse doesn’t speak about what life was like inside a Communist prison for a Christian but we can guess what it might have been like. 
 
In 1964 he was released on parole.  Finally in 1969 Alphonse was able to leave and came to Rockford to spend many years of hard manual labor working in a local factory.  Alphonse is 84 years old this year.
 
He is dedicated to praying for and working towards the day when all children in the womb will be loved and protected.  Many of our pro-lifers have personally seen Alphonse at Church or chapel, always in the back, always on his knees, with a peaceful, joyful, loving countenance about him that is impossible to describe.
 
If after the life Alphonse has lived he still has the courage and love to pray at Rockford’s abortion mill, shouldn’t we all join him?
 
 
Rockford Pro-Life Initiative 
 
The mission of Rockford Pro-Life Initiative is to eliminate abortion in the Rockford area through Prayer, Fasting, Education, and Personal Sacrifice.

Go Into The Whole World And Proclaim the Good News                 
 
"The word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
 
On Wednesday June 9, 2010 from 7:00 -11:00am Christians from throughout Rockford will read aloud all fours Gospels of our Lord Jesus Christ at Rockford’s abortion mill, 1400 Broadway.
 
Jesus Christ is the "good news" all the world needs.  No place in our world needs this "good news" more than Rockford’s abortion mill.           
A place where over 50,000 human beings have been intentionally killed and God is mocked every day.
 
Beginning with the Gospel of Matthew we will read aloud the "good news" of our Savior Jesus Christ contained in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John on the sidewalk in front of Rockford’s abortion mill as our prayer of faith and hope to bring about repentance and an end to abortion in our city.
 
Please contact us at:  everylifematters@comcast.net to sign up for a 15 minute time slot to read or support in prayer the reading of the New Testament.           
 
All are welcome and encouraged to come at any time this morning to listen to the word of God being faithfully proclaimed at the "Foot of the Cross" in our city, Rockford’s abortion mill.

Abortionist under Investigation for Forced Abortion Says he “Lies” to Patients
By Peter J. Smith
DETROIT, Michigan, May 25, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Michigan abortionist is under renewed scrutiny over comments he made over two years ago, in which he said that doctors have a license to “lie” to their patients.
 
The comments were made by Dr. Abraham Alberto Hodari to medical students at Wayne University. Hodari currently is facing a lawsuit for allegedly forcing a woman to submit to an abortion after she had changed her mind, killing the unborn baby that she had decided she wanted.
 
“My wife says we doctors have a license to lie, and it’s true, it’s absolutely true. Sometimes you need to lie to a patient about things that they want to do or no,” Hodari told a gathering at Wayne State University on November 9, 2007.
 
He said it was not so much the case today, saying that the reason is that women “are more educated, between CNN and the internet, the patients are more educated about what we do.”
He then added, “I have great satisfaction about what I do, and I never feel bad or worried about doing abortions.”
 
Hodari’s remarks have only added more ammunition to the lawsuit pending against him in Genessee County Circuit Court.
NBC25 reported on the comments and asked for an explanation from the abortionist. Hodari claimed that he was only referring to situations where the woman’s life would be in danger, and said that a doctor must “never” tell a patient “you’re going to die.”
 
“And in that respect, yes, we lie,” insisted Hodari.
 
However, the context of Hodari’s remarks, in which he mentioned how proud he was to be an abortionist, had nothing to do with telling women that they were dying.
Caitlin Bruce is one ex-client of Hodari, who claims he did exactly to her what he told the Wayne medical students: lied to her, and forced her to abort a baby she wanted. Bruce that Hodari and his assistant forcibly held her down to the operating table and "ripped the life out of me that day."
 
Bruce’s alleged forced abortion happened at Hodari’s Flint abortion center, the Feminine Health Care Clinic.
 
Tom R. Pabst, Bruce’s attorney, told NBC25 that Hodari violated Bruce’s right to back out of a medical procedure and the video will serve as evidence against him.
"Whether it’s a sexual advance or a medical procedure, if she says, ‘No, stop,’ that’s the end of it," Pabst told the local news station.
 
"What he’s saying is that he knows what’s better for your body than you do, and he’s going to go ahead and do what he thinks is best for a woman’s body, not the woman. To me he’s got it flipped."
Bruce’s story aligns with testimonies from other women who have described similar horror stories of coerced abortions at Hodari’s hands.  A report by Operation Rescue shows Hodari has a record of 49 documented lawsuits over a span of decades.
 
Hodari’s practice has also been implicated in the deaths of at least four women from abortion-related complications.  In June 2009, the Disciplinary Subcommittee of Michigan’s Board of Medicine fined Hodari $10,000 for negligence in connection with the botched abortion death of Regina Johnson. 
Numerous complaints have been filed against the abortionist for improper disposal of human remains and abortion records found in Hodari’s dumpster.  Hodari received a sentence of six months’ probation on one such count in February.
 
In November, Hodari put his abortion clinics on the market along with his collection of expensive classic cars and hastily filed for divorce from his wife of 29 years. Local activists told Operation Rescue that it appeared that he was attempting to liquidate his assets so he could flee the country, possibly to his former home in Argentina.

Judge Denies Motion to Dismiss Suit Against Aurora Planned Parenthood
By James Tillman

AURORA, Illinois, May 24, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Striking down a motion to dismiss, Judge Neal W. Cerne of Dupage County Court has ruled that a lawsuit may go forward alleging that a Planned Parenthood mega-center violates city zoning laws and that the zoning board blatantly ignored the violation.

 
Although this decision was cheering to pro-life advocates, Judge Cerne removed many of the defendants originally named from the lawsuit, including the City of Aurora, Mayor Tom Weisner, the previous CEO of Planned Parenthood of Illinois, and the city Planning Commission. Cerne ruled that the case may proceed before the Aurora zoning board of appeals and building code board of appeals.
 
Attorneys with the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal group, sued Planned Parenthood (PP) on behalf of Aurora residents calling PP to task for the secretive construction of Aurora’s 22,000 square foot, $7.5 million "super clinic." 
 
Planned Parenthood had begun furtively constructing the abortuary by using the name of a front corporation called Gemini Office Development (GOD).  By acting as GOD, Planned Parenthood prevented Aurora residents from objecting to the construction of the clinic.  A pro-life construction worker’s suspicions were raised only after noticing the bullet-proof glass and surgical equipment that were being installed.
Yet Thomas More lawyers say the city of Aurora and the Zoning and Building Board of appeals have long turned a blind eye to the violations.
 
Planned Parenthood had claimed that the deception was intended to protect the clinic’s staff and construction workers from dangerous protestors.
"This massive and illegal abortion facility is a blight on the quiet residential neighborhood that it borders," said Peter Breen, Thomas More Society executive director and legal counsel. "If the City of Aurora’s zoning laws are to have any meaning, Planned Parenthood must be held to account for its repeated and flagrant violations of those laws."
 
Although hailed as a victory by pro-life leaders, the mixed ruling handed down by Judge Cerne also allowed Planned Parenthood to claim victory. The judge dismissed counts alleging that pro-lifers were denied due process because of the secretive construction, and that defendants violated the state constitution’s Equal Protection clause.
 
"Planned Parenthood of Illinois is pleased with the court’s ruling to dismiss several of the counts in the zoning case regarding the Aurora health center," said Planned Parenthood of Illinois interim CEO Carole Brite. "We look forward to resolving the remaining counts as quickly as possible in a manner favorable to PPIL."

Unborn Baby Gives British Mom a Thumbs Up in Ultrasound Picture
London, England (LifeNews.com) — Marie Boswell expected to get the latest information about the status of her unborn child from her physician. In a rare ultrasound picture showing her baby giving her a thumbs up, she got a progress report from the baby boy himself.
 
Bosworth was stunned by the ultrasound photo of her 20-week-old unborn baby giving her the popular sign when everything’s all right.
"It was really funny," the 35-year-old mother said of the ultrasound picture she had at Wythenshawe Hospital, near her home in Manchester.
She told the London Daily Mail newspaper, "I went to the scan with my friend and my mum and we were all just laughing. He was giving us the thumbs up, it was just so clear."
 
"We couldn’t believe it. I have big hands, but nothing on the scale of his," she told the newspaper. "We’re thinking he might make a good goalkeeper. I’ve never seen a scan like this before – but we love it."
 
"I’ve been keeping it in a book because I want to show it to him when he is older," she added.

Abortion practitioner subject of a civil lawsuit

Practitioner in Michigan Forced Abortion Case Admits Again He Lies to Women

 
Flint, MI (LifeNews.com) — The Michigan-based abortion practitioner who is the subject of a civil lawsuit from a woman who says he forced her to have an abortion even after she said on the operating table she didn’t want one is in the news again. Alberto Hodari is defending comments he made at a college lecture saying he lies to patients.
 
Caitlin Bruce, a 20-year-old woman, says Hodari and a staffer held her down and completed an abortion on her even though she changed her mind while on the table and voiced her objections.
 
Tom Pabst, the attorney for Bruce, has filed both a civil lawsuit and papers with the County Prosecutor David Leyton hoping for criminal charges.
Hodai was caught on videotape in November 2007 speaking to Medical Students for Choice at Wayne State University in Michigan even though he had killed two patients in failed abortions.
 
Hodari bragged about lying to patients and families and not washing hands between abortions.
"My wife says we doctors have a license to lie, and it is true. It’s absolutely true. Sometimes you need to lie to patients about things they want to do or not… much less now than in the past, because they’re more educated between CNN and the Internet. The patients are more educated about what we do," he said then.
In a new interview with NBC 25 Hodari said he was referring to life-threatening situations and admitted again he would lie to patients.
“Never tell a patient, especially a woman, you’re going to die,” he told NBC25. “And in that respect, yes, we lie.”
Caitlin Bruce told the Michigan television station she is not surprised by Hodari’s confirmation he lies to patients.
“You’re not God. You don’t make other people’s decisions,” she said she wants to tell him. “What you do to women, it’s not right.”
Pabst, Bruce’s attorney, also talked with NBC 25 and said patients have a right to change their mind about a medical procedure, including an abortion.
"Whether it’s a sexual advance or a medical procedure, if she says, ‘No, stop,’ that’s the end of it," he said.
The case is File #114925 and it concerns both the Bruce abortion and a 20-year old case involving a then 16-year old girl who came forward last year to tell of her abortion by Hodari that he forced upon her under false pretenses.
Jennifer McCoy filed her own complaint against Hodari saying she went to his abortion center for what she believed was a routine pre-natal check up for a wanted pregnancy when she was subjected to an abortion against her will.
 
That McCoy was pregnant by a 40-year old high school teacher was also never reported to authorities as required by law for potential sexual abuse cases.
Hodari has already been disciplined for abuses at his abortion centers.
He was placed on probation last February for illegally dumping medical records and, last March, was fined $10,000 for his part in the death of Regina Johnson.
Hodari has been involved in at least three additional abortion deaths.

Tamia Russell was only 15 years old in January of 2004 when her 26 year old boyfriend paid Hodari $2,000 in cash to abort her baby at over 26 weeks gestation. She died less than 24 hours after obtaining an abortion at Womancare of Southfield/Lathrup Village.

Her guardian was unaware she was pregnant, and had no knowledge of the abortion – until it was too late.
 
Chivon Williams received a suction abortion by Hodari at an unknown clinic. An hour and forty minutes later, she was discharged even though she was complaining of pain in her stomach and chest. Soon after she arrived at her home, she "became unresponsive." At 5:17, on the same day as the abortion, she was pronounced dead.
 
In November, Hodari put his abortion facilities up for sale along with his collection of expensive classic cars and hastily filed for divorce from his wife of 29 years. Local pro-life advocates are concerned he is attempting to flee the country to return to his native Argentina.

WWJD

It’s Not "What Would Jesus Do", but "What Will Jesus Do."

 
Rockford’s abortion mill again attempts to mock God and again it fails miserably.
 
Rockford IL, May 18, 2010 – A sign in the window of the notorious Rockford abortion mill seems to be mocking the Christian saying "WWJD."
The mill sign has the initials "WTFWJD."  This sign is in the same abortion mill window that has had a rubber chicken on a crucifix. 
Most recently this window had a picture of Jesus giving the "finger" and another sign in this window was telling pro-lifers to "shut the F….. up."                         
 
This new message clearly seems to be a wretched attempt to say "What the F…. would Jesus do."
 
This abortion establishment has a long history of vicious attacks on Jesus Christ, Christianity, and Christian beliefs.  This sign is another pathetic and contemptible attempt to connect Christianity and the name of our Lord to the foul language and displays for which this clinic is nationally known.
 
God Has Already Answered Their Question
 
Another sign attacking God from a place that has killed well over 50,000 human beings is not surprising. 
But the question this clinic seems to be mocking is a question Jesus Christ has already answered.
It concerns the people who destroy innocent life and the people who attempt to protect the little lives that are annihilated behind the brick walls of this abortion mill.
 
This Is "What Jesus Will Do", And It Affects Us All – Eternally
 
"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit upon His glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before Him. And He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on His right and the goats on His left.
 
Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave Me food (children in the womb are hungering for life),
I was thirsty and you gave Me drink (babies taken to Rockford’s abortion mill are thirsting for love),
a stranger and you welcomed Me (every child should be welcome into our human family),
naked and you clothed Me (every child should be clothed with human dignity),
ill and you cared for Me (every mother should be cared for – not pressured to kill her baby),
in prison and you visited Me.’ (a child taken into the Rockford abortion mill may be in a prison that they never leave alive).
Then the righteous will answer Him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? (anytime we pray for, work for, witness for, or love a child in the womb, we are loving Christ in the poorest and most defenseless among us)
 
When did we see You a stranger and welcome You, or naked and clothe you? 
When did we see You ill or in prison, and visit You?’
( whenever we help a mother in need, stranger though she may be, we are welcoming and clothing in love Christ Himself)
 
And the King will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least children of Mine, you did for Me.’ 
(children in the womb are truly the least of His people)
 
Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you accursed (no one is more accursed than those who kill children) into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.  
For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, a stranger and you gave Me no welcome, naked and you gave Me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for Me.’ (those who murder children in the womb no matter if they are abortionists, nurses, business men, supporters of abortion, or politicians participate in the murder of persons with whom Jesus Christ personally identifies)
 
Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to Your needs?’  He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for Me.’
And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
 
Those who have mocked God and destroyed so many lives at Rockford’s abortion mill will one day answer for what they have done.
 
Those who have sacrificed, prayed, fasted, worked for, and given of their time, energy, and most of all their love for children facing death and mothers in need at Rockford’s abortion mill will one day hear the most beautiful words that may ever enter the human ear:
 
‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful, enter into the joy of your Master’s house.’  Mt 25
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Battleground in Rockford

Rockford’s Abortion Mill Has Become A Battleground Between The Spirit Of Satan And The Gospel Of Life
He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,  that he might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8

 
Rockford’s abortion mill has become a battleground between the forces of Satan, who destroy human life, and the followers of Jesus Christ who believe all life is sacred.  One of the latest incidents at this mill shows how deeply the culture of death has sunk it’s bloody claws into the hearts of some families.

You may have read recently of the young woman who left Rockford’s abortion mill so distraught she had a hard time breathing because she was sobbing so profusely.  More details concerning this tragic story have been shared with local pro-lifers.

"Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child."  Mark 13:12

This young 17 year old mother was pregnant with twins.  When her biological father found out he told his own daughter that unless she killed the twins in her womb he would not pay for her college.  He even offered to buy her a car if she had the abortion and sent her the blood money to do it.

"And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another."  Matthew 24:10 

 
We have had contact with this young woman’s mother and she is heartbroken over the deaths of her grandchildren and deeply concerned with her daughters mental condition.  In her words "my daughter is a mess now."  Because of the betrayal by her father and her being complicit in the deaths of her twins she is emotionally distraught.

The forces of evil are using abortion to kill children, destroy families, and wound young women for life.

If you go to the Rockford Pro-Life Initiative web-site http://www.rockfordprolife.com/index.html you will read about an effort to expose the evil of abortion mills and hold them accountable for the harm they have done to so many lives.

 
"…they brought to Jesus many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick."
Matthew 8:16
 
Please pray for the evil of abortion to end in our city and for the healing of all mothers betrayed by the culture of death.
