ProLifeCorner.com – 9-4-2016 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – Words cannot express the love and friendship the Rockford pro-life community has for Don and Mary Brady. For decades they took care of pro-lifers every day the Rockford abortion mill was open. They opened their hearts and the Rockford Labor News building they owned to help save babies from abortion. Don and Mary provided a warm smile, words of encouragement, coffee, donuts, and shelter from the heat, rain, and cold to people in need.
Don has passed away after years of loving his family, protecting the unborn, and serving Jesus Christ. : Funeral MASS will be on Tuesday, September 6, at 11:00 am at St. Bridget’s Church, 600 Clifford Avenue, Loves Park, IL with visitation [at St. Bridget’s] 1 Hour before Mass. Continue reading →
When my daughter was growing up, I told her that everyone makes mistakes and that the best thing she could do for herself was to admit her mistakes and then learn from them. I also told her to learn from other people’s mistakes, as much as she could, so she could save herself the heartache of going through those things herself.
Human beings want to believe they are perfect and they certainly don’t want to tell anyone of the mistakes they have made because they think it makes them appear weak; but in reality, weakness lies in not being truthful with yourself and sharing that wisdom with others, especially the next generation – whether it be your own children, nieces and nephews, siblings, cousins, friends, etc. Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner- Our readers often send us many wonderful comments on one article or another. However one comment, in particular, stood out. We feel it is so good we want to be sure everyone has a chance to read it and ponder the truth of it.
We thank Gail for the time and knowledge it took to send us this work, but we especially thank her for her many years of dedication in counseling at an abortion mill. May God richly bless her and all pro-life counselors for their selfless work.
Are You Singing a Little Louder?
By Gail H. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,” said Edmund Burke. As a sidewalk counselor for many years, I am sick (to death) of all of the excuses given by so-called “Christian pro-lifers” when asked to pray near an abortion mill. If asked if they would die for Christ, they would go on and on about how they would do anything for Christ. Somehow I find that hard to believe, since they cannot even come out to pray just for a few minutes near the abortion mill. They have all sorts of complaints. They complain about the heat or cold or rain or snow, yet will stand outside in the church parking lot for at least 30 minutes or more in all kinds of weather, probably while talking about how valiant they are and how they want to die for Christ.

ProLifeCorner.com – 8-6-2016 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – The first thing that needs to be understood is the passage of SB 1564 means health care professionals and Pregnancy Care Centers starting January 1, 2017 will be legally bound to help any mother who wants to murder her baby find an abortion mill as well as tell her of the benefits of abortion. This is wrong and we know it.
That is why many were confused when the Catholic Bishops came out as “neutral” concerning this deadly law but this statement from the Illinois Catholic Conference and the Catholic Health Association tell the sad story.
“We reached an agreement with the bill’s sponsor that reflects the current medical practices in Catholic hospitals. Catholic health care ethicists and Catholic hospital lawyers participated in the negotiations.”
Catholic hospitals have already been giving pregnant mothers information on where she can have the beating heart of her child stopped and the child’s tiny body crushed by an abortionist. In a Catholic Hospital, it appears from this statement above, all you have to do is ask where to get an abortion and you will be given contact information. Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner– 8-1-2016 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – In a shocking development the Illinois Conference of Catholic Bishops have declared themselves “neutral” on a controversial bill that would force pro-life medical professionals and pregnancy care centers to tell mothers about the “benefits” of abortion and give mothers information on where and how to end the life of her child in an abortion clinic.
Pro-lifers have worked very hard to defeat SB 1564 since it was passed in May but the Illinois Bishops, by taking a “neutral” position, have essentially sided with Planned Parenthood and the Illinois abortion lobby in criminalizing any medical professional or care center worker who refuses to send a mother to an abortion clinic.

SB 1564 also mandates that health care professionals and care centers tell mothers of the “benefits” of abortion. The Bishops statement says about this mandate, we “Would rather not alter the law in any way.” The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative is trying to figure out what the “benefits” are of the crushing of the skull, stopping the beating heart, and the brutal dismemberment of a little girl or boy in their mothers womb, but the Bishops of Illinois seem to have found something they find beneficial about this.

Guns have certainly been in the news lately. It seems like some type of violence connected to guns shows up every few days. My sympathies go out to all of the victims of this type of violence. If we all supported life from conception to grave we could eliminate much of this.
There are too many people who blame guns instead of the person holding the gun. The reason why our society is falling apart is because we have moved away from evaluating our actions and decisions as good and evil. People blame guns because they do not want to blame the shooter. Blaming the person holding the gun would admit that good and evil exist and that people should be responsible. And, if good and evil exist, then where do abortion, traditional marriage and supporting families stand in regard to good and evil? Continue reading →
7-12-2016 – ProLifeCorner – A good friend of the Pro Life Corner sent us this article. It clearly shows how only one person can make a huge difference in the lives of so many. Over 100 babies have been born thanks to the courage, devotion, and faith of this one man. We should all learn from his example and go out to help save the lives of the many unborn who are being subjected to a heinous death due to abortion.Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner – 6 27 26 – by staff – The following is a critical alert for immediate action!! Please read the short note and call asking for this bill to be VETOED. Thank you.
WE NEED TO MAKE CALLS TODAY.
Last week one of the worst pro-abortion bills in Illinois history was sent to Governor Rauner for his signature or veto. He is expected to take action by WEDNESDAY on this bill. It’s SB-1564, the bill that would force pro-life physicians, nurses and even pregnancy centers to make abortion referrals. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are pulling out all the stops to get Gov. Rauner to sign the bill, and my sources tell me that their calls and emails are starting to run even with OURS. That means we have to call AND email Gov. Rauner again RIGHT NOW and tell him to VETO SB-1564! First, here are the numbers to call — please call BOTH: CHICAGO OFFICE: 312-814-2121 SPRINGFIELD OFFICE: 217-782-0244Continue reading →
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:
It was a sign of faith, love, and trust by Christians in Jesus Christ.
A show of support for Sandra Mendoza.
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.
A prayerful and public stand for religious freedom and against anti-Christian bigotry.
