Some of the sponsoring pro-abortion organizations for these marches include: Continue reading

Religious Freedom / Pro-Life Rally Rockford Illinois

Religious Freedom / Pro-Life Rally Rockford Illinois

ProLifeCorner-  Rockford Il.-

On Monday June 13th, Christians from Winnebago County came together to pray outside of the Winnebago County Health Department that fired Pediatric Nurse Sandra Mendoza because of her refusal to refer mothers to abortion clinics.  This is another attack on religious freedom and human life by government officials who believe they are above the moral law.

This rally had four goals:

  1. It was a sign of faith, love, and trust by Christians in Jesus Christ.
  1. A show of support for Sandra Mendoza.
  1. It was an appeal through prayer and public witness to the Winnebago County Health Department to stop the immoral and deadly practice of sending mothers and children to abortion mills. 
  1. A prayerful and public stand for religious freedom and against anti-Christian bigotry.

A New Challenge to Roe v. Wade

A New Challenge to Roe v. Wade

 ProLifeCorner-   By Larry Plachno

Many people braved the snow in Washington, D.C. in January to march for life. They Larry-150x1 bluewere there to show their unhappiness with the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision of January 22, 1973 that made abortion the law of the land. There were other major marches elsewhere including Chicago and San Francisco timed to coincide with this 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Due to the bias of our mainstream media in ignoring pro-life news, most of the marchers were probably not aware that there has been a new challenge to Roe v. Wade.

This new development comes from a rather unexpected quarter. Involved is a joint resolution recently passed by the South Dakota state House of Representatives with a 60-10 vote and passed by the state Senate with a 25-9 vote. It was signed by the leaders of both chambers. Just prior to this Roe v. Wade anniversary, some of the South Dakota lawmakers presented this state resolution to the United States Supreme Court. In doing so they asked the high court to reconsider and overturn its abortion rulings including Roe v. Wade. Continue reading

Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

ProLifeCorner-

Today, the Church celebrates the:

Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

The over 56 million abortions since the 1973 decisions of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton reflect with heartbreaking magnitude what Pope Francis means by a “throwaway culture.” However, we have great trust in God’s providence. We are reminded time and again in Scripture to seek the Lord’s help, and as people of faith, we believe that our prayers are heard.

 This mass was offered in reparation for all forms of sin committed against the dignity of human life from conception to natural death in our country and in the world!

Modern-day public figures abuse their power at times, and this was no less of a problem in ancient biblical days. In today’s reading, we see King Saul of Israel abusing his power by seeking to kill David. Saul was jealous of David and saw him as an “inconvenience”, and a threat to his own legacy and rule. At the same time, David stood to gain if he killed Saul; he not only would get rid of the man who was out to destroy him, but he would succeed him to the throne. In the end, however, respect for life won out. David spared Saul’s life because it was the right thing to do in the eyes of God. In turn, won over by David’s decision, Saul repented. He abandoned his plan to abuse his power by killing David. Continue reading

This Should Have Happened at 10th and Broadway Rockford

This Should Have Happened at 10th and Broadway Rockford

ProLifeCorner – Rockford Illinois- 1-12-2016 – by Editor – This picture is worth a thousand words and is what should happen to every abortion mill that is still standing. The powers to be in Rockford Illinois relieved Wayne Birmingham250xWebster of a large liability by buying the Northern Illinois Women’s Center. The slaughterhouse at 10th and Broadway has now become a liability to the taxpaying citizens of Rockford. It is the law abiding, tax paying citizens of Rockford who will be forced to bring this now closed clinic up to code; code that N.I.W.C. should have been held responsible for over 30 years ago.

Tearing down the killing center is a most appropriate way to acknowledge the infamous Roe v Wade decision that allowed these killing centers to open in the first place.  Each building annihilated will save the lives of countless unborn babies.  Let us pray in 2016 that more of these murderous places will close during the year.  Continue reading

May God bless Mark and his family with many more years of their courage and wisdom. Continue reading

Are We Still Fighting the Civil War?

ProLifeCorner-  By Larry Plachno-   It was 150 years ago, on April 9, 1865, that General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia after finding his troops surrounded and outnumbered. This ended the Civil War. Or did it? Some people suggest that this same battle continues today in other forms.

       Many people will acknowledge that the bloody battle was fought over whether people could declare a group to be inferior or less than human. Slavery was legal in the early days of the United States of America. The 1787 Constitutional Convention witnessed the famous “Three-fifths Compromise” whereby slaves would be counted as only three-fifths of a person for determining representation and taxation.
