Feral Cats – Purveyors of Disease

ProLifeCorner.com- By Frank Munda-  Many of us are aware that pregnant women should avoid any contact with cat litter boxes because of the danger to her health and the health of her preborn baby.  I have recently read several articles about feral cats and their effect on the community at large, expanding our concern beyond pregnant women. We assure our feline-loving friends this is not an attack on domestic cats who receive proper medical attention and shots.  This is a slightly expanded version of a letter to the editor sent to both the Freeport and Rockford newspapers.

Moving Beyond Abortion

Moving Beyond Abortion, or Not Moving Beyond Abortion, That is the Question

ProLifeCorner.com- 9 25 2013-  by Larry Plachno- I was fascinated by the recent heated discussion about moving beyond abortion to other areas of concern. At least some of this was fostered by a posting on the Pro-Life Corner as well as the recent reorganization of the Pro-Life office at the Diocese of Rockford. At the risk of sticking my neck out about a million miles, let me provide my 20-plus years of research experience to anyone willing to take a few minutes to listen to me. Continue reading

Pope “Hates Dogma”

September 23, 2013- Bill Donohue discusses the way the left is responding to Pope Francis:
If ever there were any doubt that the Catholic left and the secular left have much in common, it is doubted no more. Consider that Jane Fonda tweeted this weekend that Pope Francis “hates dogma,” and that today we learned from Fordham theologian Michael Peppard that while the pope “is a lover of traditional prayers and books,” the “old Q-and-A Baltimore Catechism is not among them.” Of course, neither quoted the pope as making these comments, and that’s because he never did.

Now Is Not The Time For Tame Pro-Lifers

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 9-23-2013 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – Let’s face it.  The media and those on the left in the Church are having their day by twisting the words of Pope Francis.  Those of us who are old enough to remember how the liberals verbally rewrote Vatican II, right under our very eyes, by saying “ this is what the spirit of Vatican II really says”.  Be on guard!  They are doing the same thing with the words of Pope Francis.  He has not changed Church teachings on life issues.  According to a report from LifeNews.com he once called abortion a “death sentence” for the unborn and… Continue reading

Pro Abortion woman warns of chemical abortion

“Pro-Choice” Woman Angry about not being sufficiently warned About Chemical Abortion Dangers and Side Effects

By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D., NRL Director of Education & Research- National Right to Life-  There have been a rash of articles in media of late pushing the line that informed consent laws, laws limiting chemical abortions, and challenges to so-called “web-cam abortions” are totally unnecessary, just pro-life ploys to put more obstacles in the way of women getting the “reproductive health care” they want and need.

No Mandate Has The Power To Trample Our Conscience

ProLifeCorner.com-   At this time in America we’ve come to the crossroads, standing with our religious freedom and what we have been told “we hold these truths to be self-evident” that all men are created the same, endowed with some inalienable rights that cannot be taken away – that cannot be taken away by man – that were given to all by the Creator – God Almighty in heaven — greater than any legislature.  Continue reading

Stop Perpetuating The Genocide In Our Own Country!

ProLifeCorner.com- By Fr. Brian Sistare-  We are a very critical point in our nation’s history.  It seems like we are on the verge of going to war with Syria.  The evidence seems to be clear, that over 1000 people were killed in Syria by chemical warfare, and by their own president.  How should the United States react to what happened?  Should we go to war with Syria over what happened in their country?  I do not know if there is a clear answer to these questions, but I do know that every American should turn to prayer at this critical moment.   Continue reading
