RADICAL SECULARISM'S VERSION OF DEATH WITH DIGNITY--TELEVISED ASSISTED SUICIDE

Is a televised suicide "death with dignity"? Only those who are diabolically disoriented could answer in the affirmative.

From
PressAssociation: "The moment a man died in an assisted suicide will be broadcast on British television.

"Craig Ewert, 59, suffered from motor neurone disease and chose to end his life rather than endure the "torture" he feared his degenerative condition meant.

"The former university professor, who lived in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, travelled to Switzerland t

MONTANA JUDGE: MAN HAS RIGHT TO KILL HIMSELF

The culture of death arose in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve believed they would be like gods if they ate of the forbidden fruit. Throughout history Satan has succeeded to convince man to play god and mortally wound his own soul. With the rejection of truth today, we are in the midst of a steep suicidal decline where God given natural rights e.g. life, are being abrogated at an ever-quickening pace while there is no end in sight to the diabolical creation of new "rights" to commit mortal sin e.g. homosexual marriage and physician assisted suicide.

From ABCnews:
A Montana judge has ruled that doctor-assisted suicides are legal in the state, a decision likely to be appealed as the state argues that the Legislature, not the court, should decide whether terminally ill patients have the right to take their own life.

Judge Dorothy McCarter issued the ruling late Friday in the case of a Billings man with terminal cancer, who had sued the state with four physicians that treat

ARE MANDATORY ABORTIONS ON THE HORIZON FOR THE WEST?

Here is another fine article from Mr Frank M. Rega, S.F.O., author of St Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims. As Mr Rega points out St. Padre Pio defended the controversial encyclical, Humanae Vitae, praising its “lofty teachings” and “eternal truths.” But one aspect of Humane Vitae which is often overlooked today is its grim warning that governments might “impose” contraceptive methods on citizens. In the light of the Humanae Vitae’s other accurate predictions, are mandatory birth control and abortion on the horizon for America?

St. Padre Pio demonstrated the depth of his love and loyalty to the Church when he publicly praised and defended Pope Paul VI for his encyclical Humanae Vitae, “Of Human Life.” 1 Upon its release in the summer of 1968, a torrent of vilification and disobedience was unleashed upon the Pontiff from within the Church, as well as mockery and scorn from without. Such open rebellion against Peter’s successor was unprecedented, and yet he had done nothing more than his solemn duty to uphold the infallible, magisterial teaching of Catholicism against unnatural methods of birth control.

The likes of Fr. Hans Kung, Fr. Charles Curran, et. al., and the Canadian Bishops’ Winnipeg Statement, brazenly stood in opposition to the teachings of their own religion. Many did defend the document; but one great saint, a man

POPULATION BOMB AUTHOR: STERILIZE WOMEN AND SEND THEM INTO THE WORKPLACE

Radical 1960s environmentalist and Population Bomb author, Paul Erlich, has been called a a stupendously bad prophet of doom and gloom. Nevertheless he has recently wisely identified the manner in which man can bring about the extinction of entire peoples to avoid the extinction of certain animal species.

"Education and employment—for women especially—along with access to contraception and safe abortions are the most important components...The most basic response is to get going on stopping population growth and starting a decline." Scientific American.

Satan couldn't have said it better himself. Europe should take a lesson from Ehrlich, on
what not to do if nations desire to increase their sagging birth rates. Instead of free birth control and abortion, economic Read More...

PROFANE AND BLASPHEMOUS CONDOM PROMOTION IN MEXICO

The growing Mexican culture of death has enlisted Catholic school children to campaign for condoms using bible passages in support of contraception. We are truly living in an age of profanation and desecration of what is natural, holy, innocent and pure--everything is fair game for those who have been deceived and emboldened by the father of lies.

Excerpt from France24: "Love your neighbour as you love yourself. Use a condom." That’s one of the slogans adopted by two Catholic youth groups who are taking advantage of the world AIDS conference in Mexico to distribute pamphlets and hang posters in subways and buses with their message.

The ads also include other quotes from the Bible's "Song of Solomon"

SURROGATE BABY FACTORY OPENS IN POLAND

A Warsaw based organization has pre-selected 37 young women who have been deemed genetically fit to act as surrogates for couples who are unable to have their own children.

FROM The
dailyrecord: A controversial "baby factory" producing infants for £11,000 for childless couples has opened in Poland.

The women undertake not to drink alcohol or smoke during pregnancy and sign a waiver giving up all rights to their children when they are born.

Addresses for the surrogate mothers and couples paying for children are cross-checked to ensure they don't live in the same area.

The aim is to avoid the risk of surrogates bumping into their children in later life.

Couples using the surrogacy centre have to adopt the babies immediately after birth, whether healthy or not.

The centre's chief, nurse Elizhbeta Shimanskaya, 32, says she already has orders for babies and she will give birth to three herself in the coming years.

She said: "Poland needs more people. So many of our citizens

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

WHY LIBERALS MUST INDOCTRINATE OTHER PEOPLE'S CHILDREN

Liberals either do not have children or they do not have as many children as conservatives do. Instead liberals have dogs, cats and disposable income to spend on themselves. Children require personal sacrifice-which is entirely unappealing to those who are not religiously motivated. These same self-indulgent liberals realize that without children their ideology will die--so they seek to spread their nihilistic dogma to other people's children via the public school system and the popular media. What follows is an excerpt of a new book by Peter Schweizer called Makers and Takers which fleshes out the ugly truth.

"[G]o to the streets of a liberal enclave like San Francisco, Seattle or Vermont. There will be plenty of expensive boutiques, antique dealers, health spas, sushi bars and upscale coffee shops. But you won’t see very many children. The reason is not that right-wingers have dumped buckets of birth control pills into the San Francisco municipal water supply. The simple fact is that many on the liberal left today just don’t want to have children.

"A 2004 U.S. survey showed that a typical sample of 100 unrelated adults who called themselves liberal will have 147 children. That contrasts with the typical conservative, who is likely to have 208 children per 100 unrelated adults. That’s 41% more.

"The liberal Northeastern states — Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, and New York — have the lowest fertility rates in the country. They also have the lowest percentage of population under the age of five. In progressive San Francisco, there are more dogs

HOMOSEXUAL AUSSIES BUYING BABIES VIA RENT-A-WOMB WOMEN IN THE U.S.

Throughout the history of the entire world man has never witnessed the level of depravity and institutionalized perversion of the dignity of human life that we are now experiencing. There are consequences --both temporal, in the breakdown of the traditional family, and eternal --souls are being lost like flakes of snow.

From dailytelegraph: "More than 100 gay Australian couples have paid $80,000 to create a baby using rent-a-womb women in the US, a fertility clinic says.

The controversial scheme, branded as "one-stop baby shopping", is becoming increasingly popular among professional gay men in Sydney and Melbourne, according to The Fertility Institutes based in Los Angeles.

"We've seen more than 125 gay couples from Australia who have

"BOTCHED" EUGENIC ABORTION: HEALTHY TWIN IS ABORTED INSTEAD OF DOWN SYNDROME TWIN

A recent "botched" abortion in Italy has shocked the nation and has provoked a serious look at "Eugenics Abortions" where abortion is used to weed out certain undesirable humans and characteristics.

From IOL: "A botched abortion in which a healthy twin foetus was terminated instead of its sibling with Down syndrome has reignited the abortion debate in Italy and raised allegations of eugenics.

"The abortion was performed on a 38-year-old woman in Milan in June, but news of its outcome has only recently become public. Doctors blamed the mistake on movement of the foetuses between the examination and the abortion.


Serious questions are now being raised about the increase of abortions for the Read More...

COURT DENIES ASYLUM TO SPOUSES OF THOSE WHO HAVE UNDERGONE FORCED ABORTIONS AND STERILIZATIONS


The 2nd U.S. District Court of Appeals has ruled that spouses of those who have undergone forced abortion and/or sterlization under one-child policies cannot seek asylum.

The court said the immigration reform act of 1996 explicitly protects those who are forced to "abort a pregnancy or to undergo involuntary sterilization, or who has been persecuted for failure or refusal to undergo such a procedure or for other resistance to a coercive population control program." But the Court narrowed the coverage to only those who have been the direct victim of such coercion and excluded the spouse.

For a decade, the Justice Department's immigration courts considered husbands of women forced to undergo abortions or sterilizations to be political refugees in their own right. The protection also extended to women whose

THE NEW BARBARISM: DOCTOR ADMINISTERS MASSIVE DOSES OF PARALYZING DRUG TO PREMATURE BABIES

More deadly doctors in the news--this time a doctor in the U.K. administered massive doses of a paralyzing drug to two premature babies to hasten their death.

Michael Munro, a consultant neonatologist, gave 23 times the normal dose of pancuronium, a muscle relaxant, to the children moments before their deaths, contrary to medical guidelines in an act "tantamount to euthanasia", the GMC was told.

The doctor failed to record his actions in the medical notes of either child.

Dr Munro told Baby X's parents he could give the child a drug but "it was on the verge of what society finds acceptable", the hearing was told.

He then injected the child with 2,000 milligrams of the drug which, he admits, hastened the death of Baby X.

So many will scoff at the fact that this Doctor is facing any ramifications, whatsoever, for his actions--but these are the defining moments of a civilization. Historically Read More...
