Europe’s chief abortion lobbyist admits: “Pro-life groups have popular support, which pro-abortion lobby hasn’t”

neil_datta1Interesting statement by Neil Datta, who, due to his function as Secretary of the European Parliamentary Forum on Population & Development must be considered the international baby-killing industry’s chief lobbyist in the EU. Speaking at a conference entitled “Où est l’argent pour les droits sexuels et reproductifs ?” (Where is the money for sexual and reproductive Rights) in Paris on 20 September, he bitterly complained that the abortion lobby, despite the massive support it gets from governmental authorities and mass media, would never be able to mobilize as many supporters as the pro-life movement does.

In particular, Datta referred to the successful European Citizens’ Initiative “One of Us”, which collected more than 1.7 million signatures in support for a request to the European Commission to fully recognize the dignity of the human embryo and provide adequate legal protections.

After the Sodomist cake comes the Satanist cake

13628148_271716583206831_2074348653_nA Satanist group in the United States has announced plans to use so-called anti-discrimination laws to force Christian bakers to bake cakes that glorify Satanism.

It appears that this newest attempt to harass Christians is a reaction to the Masterpiece Cakeshop case soon to be considered by the U.S. Supreme Court, in which a brave baker resists the pressure of fanatical LGBT activists who want him to bake a cake for a same-sex “wedding”. As the group says, “because sexual orientation is not a protected class under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, (whereas race and religion are), there is a good chance that the right to discriminate against gay couples will be affirmed as a constitutional liberty.”

And further: “Because religion is a protected class, a baker may refuse service to LGBTQ people, but they may not refuse service based upon someone’s religion. If they aren’t willing to make a cake for same-sex unions, let’s have them make a cake to honor Satan instead.” Continue reading

Open your eyes

attack-on-familyby Anthony Esolen, Crisis Magazine, commenting on a book by a notorious Catholic priest

Father James G. Martin, S.J., is either a cruel or a foolish man. It does not seem to be the first. But if it is not that, it must be the second, because that alone can explain how a Catholic priest can live in the midst of massive and unprecedented family breakdown, and the chaos, loneliness, and alienation consequent upon it, and still wave the banner for the latest innovation in sexual confusion.

Ireland: new attempt to overturn constitutional protections for unborn life

imageFollowing the introduction of sodo-“marriage” through a referendum in 2015, the – logical next step for the promoters of the culture of death in Ireland is to seek to overturn the explicit constitutional protection for unborn life in the Irish Constitution. To this purpose, the government has set up an ideologically biased so-called “Citizens’ Assembly”, which, consisting mainly of radical anti-life activists – has come up with the recommendation that the Eighth Constitutional Amendment, which obliges the State to protect and vindicate the life of unborn children, should be overturned. Such a step backward in human rights protection would be loudly applauded by the mass media and many politicians in Ireland and abroad – yet even now, even after the moral aberration of sodo-“marriage” has been accepted, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, an openly declared homosexual, feels unsure whether the electorate will go along when it comes to legalizing abortion.

The referendum is expected to take place in March or April 2018.

Conservative MP tipped to succeed Theresa May says he is against same-sex marriage and abortion in all circumstances

Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Conservative grassroots’ favoured candidate to succeed Theresa May, has said he is against same-sex marriage and opposes abortion even in cases of rape.

The Tory Eurosceptic MP, whose growing profile has seen him tipped for a ministerial role in the prime minister’s next reshuffle, said he was a practising Catholic and opposed abortion in all circumstances.

Asked by ITV’s Good Morning Britain whether he was in favour of same-sex marriage, the Old Etonian said: “I’m a Catholic, I take the teaching of the Catholic church seriously. Marriage is a sacrament and the view of what marriage is is taken by the church, not parliament.”

Rees-Mogg, who is a father of six, said he was “completely opposed to abortion” and said he believed life began at the point of conception. “With same-sex marriage, that is something that people are doing for themselves. With abortion, that is what people are doing to the unborn child,” he said.

Asked whether he would be against terminations in all circumstances including rape, he replied: “Afraid so.”
