BREAKING: U.S. House votes to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion | News | LifeSite

This legislation makes the Hyde Amendment permanent.

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The U.S. House of Representatives voted 238 to 183 today to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion.

The No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act (HR 7), introduced by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, makes permanent the so-called Hyde Amendment permanent. Thus far the amendment, which prohibits federal money from being used to fund abortions through Medicaid, has been subject to annual renewal.

The Charlotte Lozier Institute estimates the Hyde Amendment has saved over two million lives since it was enacted in 1976.

A January 2017 Marist poll revealed 61% of Americans don’t support using tax dollars to pay for abortions.

The No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act also removes abortion funding from Obamacare while legislators consider replacements for Obama’s signature healthcare law.

Planned Barrenhood Caught Out Again – 95% of Offices Don’t Even Know what Pre-Natal Care Is

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

LiveAction is out with another blockbuster expose on BabyMurder, Incorporated, aka Planned Barrenhood.  Live Action checked in with almost 100 Banned Parenthood facilities, and found that almost 95% of those not only did not provide any sort of pre-natal care (other than offering to kill the baby), a large number didn’t even know what the heck that term meant:

A new Live Action investigation shows Planned Parenthood employees confirming what pro-lifers have been saying for years: Planned Parenthood is focused on abortion.

The new investigation, “Abortion Corporation,” explores the abortion group’s claims about being an essential women’s health care provider. Planned Parenthood has been putting extra emphasis on its non-abortion services recently in an attempt to justify the $500 million in taxpayer money it receives every year. Its leaders claim that being defunded would hurt millions of women who depend on Planned Parenthood for services like prenatal care…

Indiana middle school worksheet describes woman who is ‘very fortunate’ to live under Sharia law – TheBlaze

We cannot start the day with a moment of silence in our classrooms because some psycho brainwashed Christian or Jew might accidentally utter a prayer, contaminating the pure, clean air of atheism and amorality. We can’t post the 10 Commandments in schools or offices or courtrooms-never mind that the principles embodied in them are the basis for every civilized society- because they came form that…that…that…BOOK! And if you happen to come across a pine tree decorated in garland and hanging ornaments and lights you may call it anything you like except that scary, offensive and politically incorrect name Christmas Tree, which apparently strikes terror into the hearts of all those who are way too sophisticated and educated to to have anything as antiquated and quaint as Faith in God. But apparently, at least according to these school officials, Sahria Law is just fine and dandy. Yet another reason to home school if you are able..


Parents are criticizing school administrators …

Sunday Reflection 1/22/2017

“I urge you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose.” – 1 Corinthians 1:10

The statement of St Paul in today’s second reading is so apt for us today it is almost eerie. The divisions between us as Americans has been front and center in the news and as Christians in the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. But the divisions between Christians did not begin with the Reformation nor even with the split between East and West some 500 years earlier. Indeed division between Christians has been a fact of our Spiritual Lives from the very beginning which begs the question of how St Paul can make such a demand. But when he is speaking of the “same mind and…same purpose” he is speaking of the mind and purpose of Jesus. An example can be found in Steven MacDonald who in his life exemplified and forgiveness to a degree we should all aspire to.


The March for Life and the People on the Planet Next Door by Fr. Gordon J. MacRae

Deaconjohn1987's Blog

Science and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence turn a blind eye to a glaring contradiction: How can we explain Roe v Wade or Planned Parenthood to E.T.?

I wonder how we would explain the annual March for Life that takes place in Washington, DC. I wonder how we would account for the reason why tens of thousands of people of conscience – young and old alike – brave the DC winter each year to urge a reassessment of our cultural respect for human life.

I wonder how we would explain why our news media virtually ignores the March for Life while hyping anything that places a Catholic or a Catholic conscience in a negative spotlight. Could we ever explain to an alien race the contradiction of our driven pursuit of life out there while we have so blindly squandered the right to life right here?

I just listened to a…
