There still are some laws in force in Germany that provide for – albeit feeble – protection of unborn children’s lives. The problem is that, given the strong support of mass media and many politicians for the abortionist agenda, judges seldom find the courage to enforce them. This week however, a brave judge in Giessen has condemned a mass-murderess of unborn babies, Dr. Kristina Hänel, to pay a fine of 6.000 Euro for having offered abortion on her commercial website.
The baby-slaughterer is unrepentant and is now collecting signatures for a petition to overturn the law. In contempt of the Court, she still has not removed the baby-slaughtering propaganda from her website.
The UN Human Rights Committee has thrown away whatever little remained of its prestige and credibility by issuing a new draft for a General Comment on Article 6 (Right to Life) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights that explicitly excludes unborn children from being holders of that rights. The move, which is ontologically and legally flawed, has been made to suggest to the public that mothers may kill their unborn children in good conscience.
The UN Human Rights Committee has no authority to legislate, nor does it have any judicial powers. However, due to the prestige it once possessed, its interpretive “General Comments” are often referred to when interpreting the scope and meaning of human rights.
A second reading of the text is likely to take place in March.

A mob of thousands of feminists attacked the cathedral church of the northern Argentinean city of Resistencia on Saturday and Sunday night, attempting to set it on fire and pelting the building with paint, reddened tampons, and rocks, according to video documentation and reports in local media.
The women, dubbed “ultra-feminists” and “femi-nazis” by the Argentinean press, burned the door of the cathedral with a pile of burning trash and reportedly damaged a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary in front of the building. Many wore masks in the style of “Antifa” and were topless, with slogans written across their chests.
Interesting 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.

by 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.
Following 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.
