In another video, Treviño revealed that the nation’s largest abortion provider couldn’t help pregnant women who sought prenatal care. Thayer said women with a lump in their breast or an abnormal pap smear had to be referred to a doctor for treatment, because Planned Parenthood didn’t offer those services.
I have wondered if a person’s hell will be going through whatever it was that put them there in the first place. For ETERNITY.
If so, what will those who commit, or in any way support abortion (by direct action or by vote) spend eternity experiencing?
Not a pleasant thought…
When one lives unrepentantly in sin, they loose the ability to recognize evil as being evil.
Pray for them…
Planned Parenthood claims that abortions are only 3% of their business. This video shows how deceptive that claim is. As an example of how ridiculous the 3% claim is, the video demonstrates that the NFL is actually a hot dog business rather than a sports business by using the same method of calculation that PP uses.
This morning, as part of the national protest of Planned Parenthood, I took part in a protest outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Fresno, CA. We displayed signs, prayed the Rosary and discussed various related topics among ourselves. A few trained councilors engaged the few people headed into the facility.
Several drivers acknowledged our efforts in one way or another (supporting or opposing) as they drove by.
One of these drivers, a young woman, actually stopped in front of some of us and addressed us directly, asking if we have private health insurance. She was very courteous and not contentious in her question and in her response when we all answered in the affirmative.
Her response to us was that she also has private insurance, but many people don’t and depend on Planned Parenthood to supply much needed medical services regarding cancer and a few other things. She then asked, again courteously, why we would want to deprive needy people of these services.
Unfortunately, she didn’t wait for an answer this time but drove off.
While there could have been a lot of answers to her statements and question (which I won’t go into here), something occurred to me as she was headed down the street.
While she (in appearance, at least) may have raised some good points regarding other “services” provided, it occurs to me that those “services”, while important (if they existed and did not harm the patient), don’t mean anything if you were never born to begin with.
And Planned Parenthood derives the vast bulk of their income by trying to make sure that birth never happens.

This is an excellent video series presenting an overview of the Catechism of The Catholic Church. If you have not studied the Catechism (and really, how many of us have?) this is a great way to get an introduction.
Fr. Mahan has provided an introduction for each segment and a description of the topic covered in the section.
If you have any questions on Catholic teaching, this may be a good place to start!

Life far outshines ALL OTHER considerations in our voting decisions. NOTHING else has priority over life. Not other social issues. Not political issues. Not economic issues.
Without the right to life, all other rights are dust and ashes. All other considerations are hollow promises.
All that stuff that most of the world pooh-poohed has come true. This article is about 8 years old, but it’s truer now than it was then.
After all, truth doesn’t change – it just becomes more evident…
And therein lies an irony within an irony. Although it is largely Catholic thinkers who have connected the latest empirical evidence to the defense of Humanae Vitae’s predictions, during those same forty years most of the experts actually producing the empirical evidence have been social scientists operating in the secular realm. As sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox emphasized in a 2005 essay: “The leading scholars who have tackled these topics are not Christians, and most of them are not political or social conservatives. They are, rather, honest social scientists willing to follow the data wherever it may lead.”
Consider, as Wilcox does, the Nobel Prize-winning economist George Akerlof. In a well-known 1996 article in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Akerlof explained in the language of modern economics why the sexual revolution—contrary to common prediction, especially prediction by those in and out of the Church who wanted the teaching on birth control changed—had led to an increase in both illegitimacy and abortion. In another work published in the Economic Journal ten years ago, he traced the empirical connections between the decrease in marriage and married fatherhood for men—both clear consequences of the contraceptive revolution—and the simultaneous increase in behaviors to which single men appear more prone:
This is an amazing talk on the relationship between Marriage and the Eucharist by John Martignoni. He presents both sacraments in such a way that will bring you to new depths of understanding, and will change the way you see them forever.

African Americans are voting themselves out of existence… This is staggering…
When African Americans on the street were asked the question
“What would you say is the number one cause of death in the African American community?”
they came up with the following responses:
The real answer to that question?
“Since 1973, legal abortion has killed more African-Americans than AIDS, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and violent crime combined. Every week, more blacks die in American abortion clinics that were killed in the entire Vietnam war. And the largest chain of abortion clinics in the United States is operated by Planned Parenthood.”
– This is documented starting at 1:03:30 in the video.
Over half of Black pregnancies in the United States end in abortion.
Tens of thousands of Black Americans have been sterilized.
56 million abortions have been committed in the United States since Roe v Wade.
37 percent of those abortions have been committed against 12 percent of the population: the Black population.
Planned Parenthood grew out an organization which was created to reduce the Black population.
So where did we get Planned Parenthood? This video will blow you away…
