Do Abortion and Reduced Marriage Indicate a Failing Society?

ProLifeCorner-  By Larry Plachno-  George Santayana, the famous philosopher, poet and novelist is credited with an observation that has often been repeated and modified. He said: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Historians and researchers are warning us that we have forgotten the past and have decided to go down the same road as the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome before they fell apart. The people of both Greece and Rome accepted abortion and moved away from marriage prior to their demise. Unlike our current society, their leaders tried to halt this decline but failed. Abortion became a crime in ancient Athens but the situation in Rome became more complex.

AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR BISHOPS

Rockford, Il – 3-4-15 – Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – We are writing to the Bishops of the Catholic Church with deep concern in regards to the scandal that is taking place at Catholic Relief Services.

You will see in the links below, well documented evidence of the abuse of children by CRS and the cover-up that followed. I am sure it would be much easier to ignore what has happened but we have all seen in the past what happens to children when some of our Bishops refuse to take direct action when young people are harmed in the Church.

NIWC is Closed, May We Never Forget

ProLifeCorner- Keokuk, Iowa- By Frank Munda- Northern Illinois Women’s Center is Closed, May We Never Forget.

Dan and Donna Holman recently sent this video to us at the ProLifeCorner. They rote this comment below the video on YouTube which they shot back in 1986 at Northern Illinois Women’s Center (N.I.W.C.) Rockford Illinois.

“ In 1986 Abortionist Richard Ragsdale opened up an abortuary in the old Turner Grade School building in Rockford, Illinois. Those who ministered at this death pit in 1988 were novices. Of all of us, Fr Francis Lawler communicated best.” Continue reading

40 days for Life Aurora and Beyond

 ProLifeCorner- Aurora Illinois- by Staff-  40 days for Life Aurora and Beyond-

It is time once again for the 40 days for life campaign. God hears our prayers no matter where we are located. At home, in church, no matter where we are at, however there is something special about offering your prayers at an abortion clinic where the babies are being sacrificed. Not only does our Lord pay special attention to your prayers but your presence at an abortion clinic can often give an abortion minded mother the moral strength that she needs in order to choose life.

Thomas More Society Wins Lengthy Lawsuit

 Federal Court Rules that Michigan Firm, Autocam, Not Required to Provide Abortion Coverage

Thomas More Society Wins Lengthy Lawsuit in Defense of Religious Liberty for Christian-Owned Business

(January 6, 2015 – Kentwood, MI) The Thomas More Society has won permanent protection for Autocam Medical, LLC, protecting its religious freedom to decline to provide abortion or contraceptive group insurance coverage for employees.  Yesterday concluded a long legal battle that took Autocam all the way up to the United States Supreme Court, which sent the case back down to the lower courts.  The District Court for the Western District of Michigan declared Autocam free from having to comply with Obamacare’s so-called “abortion pill mandate,” as decreed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”).

To Connect or Not to Connect, That is the Question

ProLifeCorner-    By Larry Plachno-    In recent years a great deal of study has gone into research and demographics on social problems, birthrates, politics, marriage and related items. As a result, we have been able to document many of the differences between conservatives and liberals. In most cases we have been able to explain those differences.

       One of the major differences between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives are more willing to connect cause and effect in regard to their actions and decisions, and are also more willing to look at how their actions and decisions are interconnected. Liberals are considerably less willing to look at cause and effect as it relates to their actions and decisions, or how their actions and decisions are interconnected. Continue reading

Reduced Abortions and the Demographic Winter

ProLifeCorner-   By Larry Plachno-   Some of the pro-life groups have been celebrating over announcements that the number of abortions has been declining recently. The researchers and demographers will tell you that the dancing in the streets is unwarranted and at best questionable. What at first appears to be a positive turn in the battle is actually a worsening of the war. The situation is similar to saying that you have reduced automobile accidents by greatly reducing the number of cars on the road.

A major part of this problem is that far too many people concentrate on the effects of abortion while ignoring the cause of abortion and the cause of most of our social problems, which is moral relativism. Since our elected officials, our religious leaders and our pro-life groups all depend on votes or contributions for support, they tend to ignore moral relativism for fear of offending someone. The result is that our society continues to grow more selfish and continues to embrace moral relativism. Continue reading

Abandoned In Illinois

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 12-4-14 – by Staff – Sadly it has become all too clear. The new Archbishop of Chicago has a history of banning Priests from praying at abortion clinics.  Now in his position as head of the Archdiocese he has publicly declared he will disobey Cannon law and openly welcome unrepentant pro-abortion politicians to receive the Body of Christ.

From ChurchMilitant.tv- It’s that time of year again – the Catholic Campaign for Human Development is going to be asking for YOUR money . . . and they’ll be spending it on things against the faith!

ProLifeCorner editors note:  As Michael Voris will explain in the short video below the problem with the CCHD has gone on for many years and they have been misappropriating funds by giving money to pro-abortion and radical left-wing groups; money which has been given to them in good faith. After you watch Michael’s video return to this page and follow the link below to an article we wrote back in November of 2012 exposing this problem.
