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. Continue reading

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.

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, 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
ProLifeCorner.com- Bill Donohue comments on Pope Francis’ crackdown on sex abuse: As Pope Francis proved today, he has no stomach for child exploitation, or for any type of sexual abuse.

May 2, 2013 By Bill Donohue -Yesterday, we released a report, the “Star-Ledger’s War on Archbishop Myers,” that garnered a strong response, overwhelmingly positive. However, there are a few questions that some critics have raised that deserve an answer. I wrote the report in response to a contrived story emanating from a foe of the Catholic Church. The newspaper not only provided no evidence that Father Fugee broke his agreement with the local prosecutor not to be around minors in an unsupervised capacity, it offered no proof that in the 12 years since Fugee’s case surfaced, he has acted improperly.
