Religious Freedom / Pro-Life Rally Rockford Illinois

Religious Freedom / Pro-Life Rally Rockford Illinois

ProLifeCorner-  Rockford Il.-

On Monday June 13th, Christians from Winnebago County came together to pray outside of the Winnebago County Health Department that fired Pediatric Nurse Sandra Mendoza because of her refusal to refer mothers to abortion clinics.  This is another attack on religious freedom and human life by government officials who believe they are above the moral law.

This rally had four goals:

  1. It was a sign of faith, love, and trust by Christians in Jesus Christ.
  1. A show of support for Sandra Mendoza.
  1. It was an appeal through prayer and public witness to the Winnebago County Health Department to stop the immoral and deadly practice of sending mothers and children to abortion mills. 
  1. A prayerful and public stand for religious freedom and against anti-Christian bigotry.

A Woman of Love and Courage

A Woman of Love and Courage

Jesus 250xProLifeCorner-  Rockford Il.–  Sandra Mendoza had faithfully served her employer and the public at the Winnebago County Health Department for 18 years when her boss informed her she must begin referring mothers to abortion clinics.

Sandra had a choice.  She could quietly go along with this mandate.  After all who would know? She could rationalize that it isn’t her fault if a woman chooses an abortion.  Odds are the public would never find out and she has been at the WCHD for 18 years and no one would expect her to throw away her career and family income over this.

But Sandra knows a few things that her bosses at the Winnebago County Department of Public Health either don’t know or don’t care about.

How to Eliminate Abortion at its Cause

How to Eliminate Abortion at its Cause

ProLifeCorner-    By Larry Plachno

In common with many people, I am deeply disturbed and concerned over the taking of Larry-150x1 blueinnocent human lives in abortion. Some of the cruel and painful abortion procedures make this situation inhuman. However, the number of people working against abortion and for life is very positive. But, on the negative side I am concerned that much of this effort is wasted. Many if not most of these pro-life people have not taken the time to look at the primary cause of abortion and work in that area.

When you approach a doctor with an ailment, he or she will do an examination and possibly schedule tests to determine the cause of the problem. This is called a diagnosis and guides the doctor in taking the proper steps to eliminate the problem. Likewise, when you have a problem with your car and take it to the dealer or repair shop, they run tests and diagnostics to find the cause of the problem. Once the cause is known, they can take action to fix the problem. Why do pro-life people not take the time to look for the cause of abortion and then work on that cause to eliminate abortion?

The Cause of Abortion Continue reading

Abortion and our Unsustainable Society

Abortion and our Unsustainable Society

ProLifeCorner-  By Larry Plachno-  Sustainability has recently become an attractive catchword in business and industry. In addition to the obvious meaning that a particular procedure or product can be ongoing or continuous, it also tends to carry the connotations of being healthy and eco-friendly.

Larry-150x1 blue           Our society is no longer sustainable due in large part to abortion and related actions or attitudes. In fact, our society has become unsustainable in three different ways. One is that we can no longer agree on good and evil or common goals. The second is that we have moved to harming society rather than supporting it. And the third is that because of abortion and related actions we have become an endangered species and our society is dying out.

You probably will not find any of these three critical items discussed in the mainstream media to any extent. Yes, topics will come up from time to time but their negative impact on our society is rarely mentioned and little will be said about abortion and related decisions and actions as the cause.

What Could Possibly Make The Angels Cry?

What Could Possibly Make The Angels Cry?

ProLifeCorner – Nashville, Tennessee- Frank J. Munda- It’s been over 30 years that we at the ProLifeCorner have been fighting the culture of death. One thing I’ve learned is that there is no right way or wrong way to approach this horrific and scandalous stain on the fabric of a once great nation. Of course I am referring to the decriminalization of abortion. How do we fight this heinous crime against mankind? If I had 10 pro-life advocates with me now I might have 10 different answers. That explains why we have so many wonderful pro-life groups with slightly different approaches. If each one of us would surrender our hearts and our minds to our Lord He will lead us.

I received a wonderful note from a gentleman by the name of Jeremy Robin. He was inspired to write and produce a video entitled “What could possibly make the angles cry?” This video, in my opinion, is very well done and speaks to the heart. The music, imagery, and editing is of the highest caliber.

It is a privilege for me to share with you Jeremy’s note below and his video. May our Lord richly bless and inspire Jeremy in all of his musical endeavors especially in how it pertains to promoting the culture of life. Continue reading

New Author To Appear On The Prolifecorner

ProLifeCorner- Dubuque Iowa-  Frank J. Munda-

Trina 175xWe at the ProLifeCorner have been very blessed in many ways. One of the ways our Lord has blessed us abundantly is by providing to us some wonderful writers.

A New Challenge to Roe v. Wade

A New Challenge to Roe v. Wade

 ProLifeCorner-   By Larry Plachno

Many people braved the snow in Washington, D.C. in January to march for life. They Larry-150x1 bluewere there to show their unhappiness with the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision of January 22, 1973 that made abortion the law of the land. There were other major marches elsewhere including Chicago and San Francisco timed to coincide with this 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Due to the bias of our mainstream media in ignoring pro-life news, most of the marchers were probably not aware that there has been a new challenge to Roe v. Wade.

This new development comes from a rather unexpected quarter. Involved is a joint resolution recently passed by the South Dakota state House of Representatives with a 60-10 vote and passed by the state Senate with a 25-9 vote. It was signed by the leaders of both chambers. Just prior to this Roe v. Wade anniversary, some of the South Dakota lawmakers presented this state resolution to the United States Supreme Court. In doing so they asked the high court to reconsider and overturn its abortion rulings including Roe v. Wade. Continue reading

Are You Born Again? Are You Saved?

Are You Born Again? Are You saved?

ProLifeCorner – Frank Munda-  Many of us have heard, or used the terms “are you born again”, or “are you saved”, and “have you accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior”? When we hear these terms or even use them ourselves, do we really think about what it means?  If I had a group of Evangelicals, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Catholics, etc. and ask the above questions, I more than likely would get different interpretations within each one of these groups. Christianity should not be a democracy where we get a consensus of the majority and therefore that is the truth, at least at that moment and within that particular group.

The purpose of this article is not to convert you, the reader, to any particular Christian belief. I do however believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ intended for us to be one. The unfortunate reality is we are not “one”, and that is something that you, myself, or anyone else can possibly  change. That peace, that unity, can only come through the power of the Holy Spirit and I long for that day. In the meantime, through our brokenness, through our division, can we at least build upon what we do agree on? That is, we love the teachings of Jesus Christ and we want to build our lives around those teachings. Continue reading

Assisted Suicide Goes Against Nations Founding Principles

Assisted Suicide Goes Against Nations Founding Principles

ProLifeCorner –  Washington DC – You may recall at the ProLifeCorner we recently did a piece on Mark Pickup from Canada being a guest speaker at a Cathedral in Washington DC. Mark was invited to give a talk on the subject of euthanasia. He was invited by the Archdiocese of Washington’s Adult and Family Rally and Mass for Life, held Jan. 22 at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle.

Mark told us: “Here’s some coverage of my Washington address on the 22 January, 2016”. He also said, ”I was surprised 200 people came as the District of Columbia was on the cusp of the worst snow storm in 94 years”. Continue reading

CCHD: 2016 It’s That Time of Year Again

CCHD: 2016 It’s That Time of Year Again

ProLifeCorner-1-13-2016 – Frank Munda

There is no denying that the Catholic Church in America is very generous with its financial support for the needy all throughout the world. We are starting the New Year and all across this country parishes will have their annual financial campaign for charity. Depending on the diocese, the names of these campaigns will vary. Sadly the one common denominator is many of these campaigns will include money for the Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). Often The CCHD supports some organizations that are less than Christian and many of its tenets are to the point of being anti-Christian i.e. pro-abortion etc..

We are resubmitting here some articles that have been published previously over the years and which are still pertinent today. Unfortunately, to my knowledge many of the parishes continue to support CCHD and other radical groups. Continue reading
