Abortion and the Rockford Race Hustlers

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 5-20 -2014 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative - In Chuck Sweeny’s recent column in the Rockford Register Star titled ‘Predicting fallout of GOP vote leader” , about Winnebago County Republican Chairman Jim Thompson’s joke calling President Obama an ass, Mr. Sweeny seems outraged that Mr. Thompson is still allowed to keep his job after making this comment.  Mr.Sweeny also quoted Rep.

Thank You, Dear Bishop And Good Sisters

EDITOR’S NOTE:  The following “letter” is presented in the form of satire in the hope of making the point that a Catholic hospital that allows  known abortionists on the staff is totally ludicrous, hypocritical, scandalous, and shameful at best.

La Crosse WI.-  (ProLifeCorner.com) – 5-10-2014 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – To my reasonable Bishop Callahan and Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Thank you for having Dr. Rose on staff at Franciscan Mayo Hospital. I know some religious extremists call Dr. Rose an abortionist, but we can all admit he is a professional and efficient at preventing the hearts of children in the womb from beating. We have never heard of him botching even one abortion. This kind of efficiency and professionalism is hard to find. A true hallmark of Franciscan Health Care. Continue reading

Are We Really Christians?

ProLifeCorner.com-   by Larry Plachno

        Recent surveys indicate that many if not most Americans are unhappy with the directions their country is taking. More and more people are asking why? Those doing the research are suggesting that we have caused most of our own problems by turning away from basic Christianity.

        We have turned our back on God by giving up on good and evil while replacing them with relativism. We have made a mockery of Jesus Christ’s suffering and death by replacing sin with selfishness. And, we have ceased to be concerned for others and have replaced responsibilities with rights. In short, we have moved away from the moral guidance of God, church, husbands and fathers. Continue reading

Hang Together or Hang Separately

Freeport IL.- ProLifeCorner.com-  By Frank Munda-  2-19-2014-  Benjamin Franklin said “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”  Thomas Paine wrote “These are the times that try men’s souls.”  Even though these quotes came from heroes of the Revolutionary War, it can apply to this moment in America’s history.  Up until  9/11, all attacks on American religious freedom and our way of life has been from external sources; not so anymore.  For the past 6 years the Obama administration has waged open warfare on Catholics and all other Christians.  These attacks are well documented, so therefore it is not necessary for me to recap them in this article.

Why Traditional Marriage is so Important

ProLifeCorner.com-  by Larry Plachno-   In recent months we have seen an increasing emphasis on traditional marriage by our religious leaders. Bishop David Malloy of Rockford recently merged the diocese Family Life and Pro-Life offices into one office to be known as the Life and Family Evangelization (LiFE) Office. His Excellency mentioned that we have made some progress on Pro-Life issues but suggested that we needed to put more work in on marriage. Continue reading

The Scandals at the CCHD and CRS Continue

ProLifeCorner.com- by Frank Munda- To our shame, heartache, and embarrassment the scandals involving the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) and the Catholic Relief Services (CRS) support of pro-abortion and left-wing groups continue. Michael Voris, a loyal son of the Catholic Church, gives us a video report that shows the Campaign for Human Development and Catholic Relief Services, in spite of all the evidence exposing their corruption, are still  supporting anti-life groups directly and indirectly.

Unpacking the Pope’s PR Debacle

ProLifeCorner-    by Monica Migliorino Miller, Ph.D., Citizens for a Pro-Life Society In an age of confusion, ambiguity serves further confusion and provides the enemies of Christ with a means to further their own agenda.

A Critique of the pope’s America interview:    

When NARAL, namely the National Abortion Rights Action League thanks a pope for anything, you know that something went seriously wrong somewhere. This is just one of the outrageous and incredible responses the secular world and the enemies of life have made in the last five days to certain statements Pope Francis made in his America magazine interview.

Rockford Pro-Life Votes To Donate Millions Of Dollars To Catholic Relief Services

Rockford, Il – (Rockford Pro-Life Initiative) – 10-11-13 – When Pope Francis accused Pro-Lifer’s of being “obsessed” with moral issues like contraception, homosexuality, and abortion the Board of Directors of the Rockford Pro-Life Initiative did some soul searching.  We realized we are in some ways “obsessed” with saving babies from being murdered by abortion and helping mothers who are being harmed by the culture of death.

Even though this “obsession” with saving babies from death and helping mothers played a part in the closing of Rockford’s demonic abortion mill our Board of Directors decided the Rock Pro-life Initiative should do an act of penance for being “obsessed” with helping people in need. Continue reading
