Illinois Bishops “Neutral” On Abortion

ProLifeCorner– 8-1-2016 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – In a shocking Raunner 300xdevelopment the Illinois Conference of Catholic Bishops have declared themselves “neutral” on a controversial bill that would force pro-life medical professionals and pregnancy care centers to tell mothers about the “benefits” of abortion and give mothers information on where and how to end the life of her child in an abortion clinic.

Pro-lifers have worked very hard to defeat SB 1564 since it was passed in May but the Illinois Bishops, by taking a “neutral” position, have essentially sided with Planned Parenthood and the Illinois abortion lobby in criminalizing any medical professional or care center worker who refuses to send a mother to an abortion clinic. PDF This Link

Is Our Earth a Big Globe of Swiss Cheese?  by Larry Plachno- At a recent meeting of Pro-Life people, a question was brought up. How do you respond to people who say: “If you don’t believe in abortion, then don’t have one.” This is a favorite comment of many liberals but it makes no sense when you sit down and look at it. Two good ways of responding include cafeteria morals and desensitization. Continue reading

Going from God to Government 4-1-2013-  by Larry Plachno- Several recent surveys indicate that many if not most Americans are unhappy with the direction our society and country are taking.
