ProLifeCorner – 12-21-2016 – Mark Pickup is an outstanding spokesman for the unborn, the elderly, and those suffering with long term illnesses. As a Canadian citizen he has worked tirelessly to improve standards of life in Canada and throughout the Americas, but after you read this article you’ll see why we should all adopt Mark as a true US citizen as well.

IF I WAS AMERICAN, I’D WRITE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP
Although I’m not American, I have a deep an abiding love for America: I want the best for that great nation. I’ve been thinking about ways to promote a moral shift in America that the New Administration can encourage toward a national life-affirming consensus: A consensus that seeks a place for unwanted unborn children and ways to support their parents.

Editors note: This is an excellent piece of work by a dear friend of the ProLifeCorner. It is my opinion that this work could be presented as a state of the union regarding the Church. it is well worth your time to read this document, The peace of our Lord be with you and your family.

ProLifeCorner- Not long after the United States of America began to take shape and the founding fathers set forth their principles, the Catholic Church in America began to grow. In the beginning it was not in any way victimized by the politics of the day.

In common with many people, I am deeply disturbed and concerned over the taking of innocent 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 embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
My daughter beside me, angelic in rest
Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
transforming the yard to a winter delight. Continue reading →
