What Will You Say to Your grandchildren?

What Will You Say to Your grandchildren?

Another (3ed) video has been released exposing the atrocities of Planned Parenthood.

ProLifeCorner.com – 7-28-2015 – It is with total shock we bring you yet another video exposing the evil of Planned Parenthood.  We must stand up and say ‘enough is enough’!  We must oppose the politicians who loudly and clearly support this heinous organization; politicians such as Hilary Clinton, Brack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and a host of others who speak out in favor of the murder of the unborn and the selling of the infants body parts for profit!  It is sad to say these people and this organization has made Hitler look like a callow schoolboy.   Years ago Pope Pius XII was accused of not helping the Jewish people during WWII.  It has since been proven that he, in fact, saved thousands of Jews from the gas chambers and death camps.  We must stand up against the atrocity of abortion/Planned Parenthood which is destroying our country as we speak.  Politicians have given in to PP and are supporting them with our tax dollars!! Now it is planned that they want even more-to make us pay for all abortions through a bogus health care program.  Are  you willing to stand by and allow yourself to become a part of the vile works of PP?  If you are willing to support them, your children and grandchildren will one day ask you what you did to stop this atrocity, just as many people have asked why no one tried to stop Hitler, but just were indifferent to what was happening around them.

A Time For Prayer And Action

A Time For Prayer And Action

ProLifeCorner.com – Rockford IL.- Rockford Pro-life initiative – 7-22-2015 – On Tuesday July 21, a second video was released showing how Planned Parenthood is in the business of selling the body parts of children killed by abortion. The first video shows Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts

In the second video, Mary Gatter, a Medical director for Planned Parenthood, negotiates the pricing of aborted baby body parts, including the cost for such things as a baby’s liver, head and heart. The video shows Gatter haggling over payments for intact baby body parts and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” of aborting babies in the womb to get more intact body parts. At the end of the video, Gatter jokes about wanting “a Lamborghini” for baby body parts. Continue reading

America The Beautiful

America The Beautiful

ProLifeCorner- Freeport Illinois- By Frank Munda-  We recently celebrated Independence Day, 2015. As I look back on my many years here on Earth I have had many joys and many sorrows, and yes many regrets; regrets of things that I did and things that I failed to do. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, awesome children who married wonderful spouses, and they in turn have been blessed with wonderful children themselves.

There have been dark times as well. The darkness of Vietnam had just slipped away from the consciousness of many American citizens when the greatest travesty of injustice came upon the scene; when an activist controlled Supreme Court illegally and immorally created law declaring that a mother now had the right to kill her baby through abortion. Many of our young readers are probably not even aware that what occurred in January of 1973 was an illegal move by the Supreme Court. The three branches of government, Legislative, Judicial, and Executive are supposed to be checks and balances. The Judicial branch of the government is to rule on existing laws or proposed laws presented by the Legislative branch of the government.  This was not the case in January 1973. Through Roe versus Wade and Doe versus Bolton, the Supreme Court created law; a law that states a woman has a right to kill her baby in what should be the safest place in the world- the mothers womb.

Emotions Causing Suffering

Emotions Causing Suffering

ProLifeCorner.com-   Pastor Timothy Barr’s homily today cautions us to not to interpret reality through our emotions. He explains that passions are not a bad thing but they must be guided by the truth.  That truth is Jesus Christ.   When we are obedient to the truth there is great joy.  He further stated that the man is the head of the family but the woman is the heart of the family sharing equal responsibility and, hopefully through their teachings and actions, are leading their children to heaven.

Unveiling of 1957 Chevy BelAir

ProLifeCorner- – Freeport, Il – It’s here!  For several weeks we have been waiting for a special car to arrive so we can present it to everyone.  That day has arrived!

First let’s get a little background to let you know why all of us involved with the Madonna Renewal Center (MRC) are so excited about this car.  After all, a car is just a car-right?  Wrong!  This car is a vintage automobile donated to the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary so they can raffle it off.  This will mean a wonderful contribution to the restoration of the Madonna Renewal Center.  The donor wishes to remain anonymous so we respect his/her wishes and can only say “Thank you and God bless you” whoever you may be.
