I’m Pro-life But…

Is this you? “I’m pro-life. I would never have an abortion. But I’m not an activist.” Well, I’m glad   you’re   against child-killing. But it’s not enough to say you are against abortion. You must live what you believe. You may not be a hold-a-sign-and-engage-in-public-debate activist, but every Christian should take a stand against abortion. Call it activism, education or ministry, but when genocide is occurring in our nation, we must do more than identify with the opponents of it. When we are persecuted for our stance on abortion or for righteousness sake, it can be discouraging. Who doesn’t want to be liked and accepted? But we must not fear rocking the boat when our fellow human beings are drowning in the devil’s deceptive lies. There are millions of people who are broken and hurting, starving for the truth. They try to fill a void by giving themselves away sexually. When the consequences of their actions hit them, and a baby is created, they try desperately to find a way out. They end up covering up one sin with another by killing their child. The darkness around them gets thicker and harder to overcome, the longer and deeper they dive into perpetual sin.

The Pickup’s interview with Celebrate Life magazine

ProLifeCorner – 11-17-14 – by Staff – Many years ago we were working on material for our Pro Life Corner bulletin quotes when we came across several wonderful pro-life quotes from Mark Pickup.  We did not realize at that time the tribulations he and his wife, LaRee, were experiencing, we only knew his writing was superb and we wanted to share it with others.  As years passed we became more aware of Mark’s condition and just some of the trials he has endured.  We have corresponded with him for quite some time and were so thrilled at the wonderful news he shared with us when he was able to take a few steps.  What joy!  Please take time to read the story of a most remarkable and faithful pro-life couple.  If only our world contained more couples like them, it would be a much better place to live.

October is Respect Life month: Death and Human Dignity

ProLifeCorner-  Freeport, Il – by AnnaRae – 10-13-2014 -  Our country and our world is suffering from the culture of death; we suffer from not only Ebola and other deadly viruses, but from the disease of the mind that condones abortion and euthanasia.  It seems tempting to encourage people who are facing pain, from cancer or some other illness, to seek out someone who will help them end their life so they do not have to go through this agony.  It seems tempting to encourage young women to seek an abortion if they do not want or cannot afford to bear a child at this time.  Do we think of the pain she will endure down the road?  The regrets, the sorrow, the physical difficulties?  Continue reading

America: Heed God’s Warning

ProLifeCorner.com – Chicago, Il - The following is a letter presented in Chicago’s St. Stanislov Kostka Church Bulletin from Aug. 3.  The pastor is a dedicated priest and he has a 1 hr. radio show each Monday-Friday on AM 750 from noon to 1 pm.  

Dear Parishioners, Friends, and Benefactors, I wonder if you’re feeling a little of what I feel these days – a little tired – a little sad – maybe even some anger. The words of the prophet Jeremiah are ever in my heart. Jeremiah recalls the happiness of his heart when he found God. He remembers the joy he had in devouring every word that came from the mouth of God. Because he bore the name of God, Jeremiah did not sit celebrating in the circle of merrymakers, but under the weight of God’s hand he sat alone.  Continue reading
