An Open Letter To the Illinois Republican Party

An Open Letter To the Illinois Republican Party

To the Illinois Republican Party,

Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider has publicly declared in a statement concerning Gov. Rauner signing HB40,

“There is no daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party and we will continue working hard to ensure his reelection.”      https://illinois.gop/ilgop-chairman-tim-schneider-statement-hb40/

The members of the Rockford Pro-Life Initiative and our supporters find this unacceptable..

  1. Gov. Rauner signed HB40 that forces taxpayers to pay for the killing of children by abortion. It has been estimated this could increase the number of children killed by abortion by 3000 to 12,000 babies a year.  And we are told by Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider, “There is no daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party and we will continue working hard to ensure his reelection.”
  2. Gov. Rauner gave his word to Cardinal Cupich that he would not sign HB40.  Rauner lied to the Cardinals face. He lied to all of us and his lie will result in the death of countless thousands of children. And we are told by Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider, “There is no daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party and we will continue working hard to ensure his reelection.”
  3. We are told that Gov. Rauner is a fiscal conservative who will fix the state budget. Gov Rauner is forcing the tax payer to ultimately pump hundreds of millions of tax payer dollars into the abortion industry to viciously and brutally dismember children in the womb. And we are told by Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider, “There is no daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party and we will continue working hard to ensure his reelection.”

When is Abortion More Than Abortion?

When is Abortion More Than Abortion?

ProlifeCorner-  By Larry Plachno-

Larry-150x1 blue            There have been an increasing number of questions from conservatives regarding the liberal position on abortion. Why is it so important to them? Why do the liberals insist that abortion be funded with tax dollars? Why is abortion tied to marriage and church? And, why do liberals insist on killing a baby instead of allowing him or her to be adopted?

The answers to these questions all go back to the polarization of our society. For liberals, abortion is the “flagship” of their “fleet” of various positions supporting their liberal stand that decisions and actions should be determined by personal choice rather than by judging them as good or evil based on what is best for others. If abortion was eliminated, or at least judged from the standpoint of good and evil, it would seriously weaken the liberal position supporting choice over good and evil. If you give me a few minutes of your time, I will explain the background behind our polarized society and why abortion has emerged as a key point in this struggle. Continue reading

The Hold, a Method of Calming a Baby

The Hold, a Method of Calming a Baby

ProLifeCorner-   A good friend of ours recently sent us a link to a video by  Pediatrician Dr. Robert Hamilton. He has been caring for newborns for over 30 years. So if anyone knows how to deal with a crying baby, Dr Bob does. Dr. Bob, as his friends call him, is based in Santa Monica California. Unfortunately we cannot pop into his office but the good doctor has made a video which may be of some help to younger parents today. Quite frankly I wish my wife and I had knowledge of this when we had our four children many years ago. In this video the Dr. demonstrates his method on calming a newborn, aka The Hold.

Be sure to watch the video all the way to the end. The doctor cautions that this is suggested for babies up to three months in age. He also cautions that if your child does not calm down he/she may be ill or simply hungry. If you have any luck with this suggestion drop us a note, we would love to hear from you. Continue reading

A Case For The Fetus

ProLifeCorner.com – Rockford, Il – 1-26-2014 – Kevin Rilott sent us the following article, written by Broderick Hooker.  He is a senior at Auburn High School in Rockford, Il.  After reading Broderick’s work we are encouraged by the youth of our nation.  If all could be as well-versed as Broderick we would have no worries about the future and we could all sleep better at night.

Categorical Singularity and the Existential Case for the Fetus.

by Broderick Hooker – Underneath the catchy phrases that are used by both sides of the abortion debate, underneath the very concrete cases and well worn arguments lies a certain set of assumptions and a particular paradigm that is necessary to accept either side as embodying the truth.
