A MOVING LETTER FROM A PREGNANT NUN WHO WAS RAPED

Here is an extraordinary letter written by a young nun, Sister Lucy Vertrusc, to her mother superior. Sister Vertrusc became pregnant after she was raped in 1995 during the war in the former Yugoslavia. The letter appeared in an Italian newspaper at the behest of her Mother Superior.

"I am Lucy, one of the young nuns raped by the Serbian soldiers. I am writing to you, Mother, after what happened to my sisters Tatiana, Sandria, and me.

Allow me not to go into the details of the act. There are some experiences in life so atrocious that you cannot tell them to anyone but God, in whose service I had consecrated my life nearly a year ago.

My drama is not so much the humiliation that I suffered as a woman, not the incurable offense committed against my vocation as a religious, but the difficulty of having to incorporate into my faith an event that certainly forms part of the mysterious will of Him whom I have always considered my Divine Spouse.

Only a few days before, I had read "Dialogues of Carmelites" and spontaneously I asked our Lord to grant me the

U.K. DOCTORS COULD LOSE RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE ON ABORTION

For Christians living in a post-modern secular regime, liberty is quickly eroding. In fact there is not even a pretense to protect religious expression or freedom of conscience. Religion must now be suppressed so that sin may become easy, convenient and guilt free--especially when it comes to deviant sex and killing off one's own offspring.

From mailonline: "Doctors could lose their right to refuse to arrange abortions under proposals to be debated next month.

They would be compelled to send any woman requesting the procedure to an abortion clinic.

The growing number of doctors who have moral objections to abortion - 25 per cent refuse to sign consent forms for it - are furious with the proposal.

Some are considering legal action if, as expected, the move is ratified by the British Medical Association's policy-making body in July.

Roman Catholic doctors are particularly opposed to the move, saying it will make them complicit in something they believe is evil, but doctors of other faiths and no faith have also condemned it.

Dr Tony Cole, of the Catholic Medical Association, said: 'This would spell the death of

WOMEN HANGS SELF OVER ABORTION

The toll that abortion takes on the women who "chooses" to kill her child is immense and is often unknown even to herself. Being immersed in the lies of feminism all of my life-- from phoney Catholic schools, to secular universities, and then the working world--I encountered many women who had had abortions. Every single one of these women were scarred for life from this grave sin. All were self-loathing in one way or another and always seemed to be looking for punishment. This punishment ranged from substance abuse, to eating disorders, to addictions to bad men. If only they had the benefit of confession to relieve them of such an awful burden. Here is a rare story that hit the press about a women who could not bear what she had done.

From Telegraph: "An artist killed herself after aborting her twins when she was eight weeks pregnant, leaving a note saying: "I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum."

"Emma Beck was found hanging at her home in Helston, Cornwall, on Feb 1 2007. She was declared dead early the following day - her 31st birthday.

"Her suicide note read: "I told everyone I didn't want to do it, even at the hospital. I was

BABIES EXPERIENCE PAIN DURING ABORTIONS


I suppose this comes as a surprise to those who are in denial of the evils of abortion but the world's leading expert on fetal pain at the University of Arkansas has concluded that babies in the womb can feel pain from an early stage of development. Such a finding may impact an upcoming vote regarding abortion in the U.K. which could ultimately tighten abortion laws and reduce the time limits to obtain an abortion.

From
Telegraph.co.United Kingdom: "Prof Sunny Anand of the University of Arkansas will present his report into foetal pain to MPs discussing changes to abortion law on Monday night.

His research concludes that the part of a baby's brain that can feel pain develops before the legal abortion limit of 24 weeks.

It is the first time the abortion laws will have been reviewed in the Commons for nearly two decades.

Prof Stewart Campbell is also on the panel. He pioneered the use of 4D screening, which produces striking images of a baby in the womb.

Nadine Dorries, the Conservative backbencher and former nurse, will chair the

THE WAR ON THE CATHOLIC CONSCIENCE--PORTUGUESE GOVERNMENT ISSUES ULTAMATUM TO DOCTORS WHO REFUSE TO PERFORM ABORTIONS

The war against the Catholic conscience continues. Every person is free to believe what they choose as long as it is not Catholic dogma. Any and all non-Christians from sodomites to atheists are free to put their beliefs into action and even involve themselves in politics. But Catholics must either magically detach themselves from their consciences or stay out of politics altogether. With the onslaught of totalitarian secularism the list of careers from which Catholics are banned, or should be banned is growing every day. Pharmacy, foster care, politics and the judiciary are fast becoming taboo for Catholics who truly live their Faith and follow their Church. And in Portugal the government has given doctors who refuse to comply with their new abortion laws an ultimatum:

From Rueters: LISBON, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Portuguese doctors have rejected a government ultimatum to remove an ethical ban on performing abortions after this deeply Catholic country approved Read More...

POLAND-- VICTIM OF THE TYRANNY OF THE EUROPEAN COURT OF CONTRIVED HUMAN RIGHTS

The term "human rights" is fast becoming synonymous with the right to abort one's child and engage in sodomy. Just as I have come to loathe and detest the term "women's rights"-- I can't help but feel the same way about so called "human rights" --especially in the context of the European Court of Human Rights.

The Court of Human Rights today confirmed Poland will have to pay compensation to a woman whose vision became impaired after being denied an abortion under Polish laws.

Poland had appealed an order to pay the woman 25,000 euros compensation and 14,000 euros in legal fees.

But the Court ruled that in refusing to allow an abortion, Poland had violated article 8 of the Convention on Human Rights.

As a traditionally Roman Catholic nation, Poland has one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the European Union. Women are permitted to terminate pregnancies only if the pregnancy poses a grave health risk, the foetus is severely deformed or the pregnancy is a result of rape.

Bellocution II the Death of Reason Malcolm Muggeridge once stated: "It took no more than three decades to transform a war crime into an act of Read More...
