Pro-Abortion Advocates Have Vulnerable Women Thinking That Becoming Pregnant Is A PROBLEM That Should Be Solved By Taking The Life Of The Unborn Child!!!

January 2, 2014
Dear Friend,

         When you witness outside of an abortion facility or Planned Parenthood location, you get a wide variety of responses when trying to persuade women not to kill their unborn child. The one response that really upsets me more than others is when a girl tells me that she “can’t afford to have this baby (yes…she says ‘baby’!)”, and “are you going to feed this baby and pay for it after I have it?”

Pro-life advocates are often portrayed as carrying about children only while they are in the womb, and that is just a downright lie! We work closely with crisis pregnancy centers and other resources to help children both before and after they are born.   No one ever said it was going to be easy.   But I think the reason I am so bothered when I’m told by someone that they can’t have a child (AFTER the child is conceived) for economic reasons is that they should have thought about that BEFORE the child was created! I don’t mean to downplay anyone’s circumstances, or how or why a life was conceived. What I DO want to focus on is the lack of responsibility that seems to be pervasive in our society. There is no genie that appears to grant three wishes, no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and no magic tricks that automatically changes our circumstances. Why would anyone expect that taking care of a child they created is someone else’s responsibility?! Now, before you get angry and think I don’t care or want to help anyone, you’re wrong.   I DO think we should help as much as we can. What I DON’T like is that pro-abortion advocates have vulnerable women thinking that becoming pregnant is a PROBLEM that should be solved by taking the life of the unborn child for whatever reason!!! These children are not unwanted: I want them, God wants them, and there are countless numbers of families that want them and would adopt them in a heartbeat!

I happen to be part of a loving and caring extended family that over the years helped my parents with me and my brothers and sisters when needed, helped me with my children when needed, and God willing, will continue to be support for my grandchildren, their children and beyond. I also belong to a wonderful church and have a fantastic network of friends.   I know that not everyone is this fortunate.   I truly believe that we should be of support beyond our own families—personally if we can—or be of support to organizations like crisis pregnancy centers and more. My beef is with the abortion industry, so called women’s rights advocates and more who have made a pregnancy into a problem rather than a gift, and who demean the sanctity of life in general and brings it to the point where I am standing outside of legal termination of life facility and a girl tells me that she is killing her child because of money.   This is reality…..and this is wrong.

Proverbs 22:6 says: “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”  We need as a society to change the reality of what our children are learning. We need to rely more on God and our faith, and return to the principles and morals on which this country was founded. That DOESN’T mean we are “shoving our religion down someone’s throat” as pro-abortion advocates say. It means that science has proven that life begins at conception, and that the unborn child is a uniquely separate human being which happens to depend on his or her mother for survival. It means that our founding documents say that we are ALL entitled to life, and it should not be arbitrarily terminated before birth no matter what the reason. It’s not rocket science….it’s life!


Our work goes on….

Maruskin Council #10936, we come together in prayer and fasting looking forward to the time when the sanctity of all human life is respected and protected.

This year’s Vigil will open at 7:00 pm, Friday, January 17 with Mass celebrated by Father McGovern, past Associate at Holy Family. An honor guard of the 4th Degree Knights of the Victor J Paul Assembly will participate.

Food For Thought



         In 2012, a panel of physicians meeting in Ireland, a country with one of the world’s lowest rates of maternal mortality, concluded:  “We affirm that direct abortion–the purposeful destruction of the unborn child–is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.”  They further stated: “The prohibition of abortion does not affect, in any way, the availability of optimal care to pregnant women.”
