THE DEATH PEDDLERS

Have you noticed? They’re not saying anymore that the unborn baby is not a baby. After all, everyone knows it’s a baby. A woman is “with child.” They can see it on the ultrasound, in the premature nursery, or examine its little parts when it is aborted. They are saying, “Yeah, it’s a baby. But it’s unwanted, it’s an embarrassment, it’s defective, it’s expensive. We should have the right to kill it.”

Have you noticed? They aren’t saying anymore that the disabled should be allowed to die and have extraordinary means of life support removed. They are saying, as in the Cruzan case, as in the Schiavo case, “She is not on life support systems and shows no signs of dying. Her quality of life is very poor and nursing care is expensive. The taxpayer is footing the bill. It is time to withdraw food and water and let her go. She can be medicated to help with the suffering of dehydration.” In other words, we should have the right to kill her.

And, God help us, we are buying the lies of the death-peddlers! Read the rest of this entry »

WELCOME, BENEDICT XVI

Pope Benedict XVI will arrive in the United States today and celebrate his birthday at the White House tomorrow. (They won’t say if they’re having a birthday cake for him!) The 81-year-old pontiff is widely recognized as a brilliant theologian and a gentle yet strong spiritual leader. In his address to his Brothers and Sisters in the United States a few days ago he said: “I am coming, sent by Jesus Christ, to bring you his word of life.” I know of no organization that speaks out more strongly in defense of human life than the Catholic Church and it is expected that Benedict may have things to say about abortion, euthanasia, and homosexuality. Abortion and euthanasia are obviously deadly, and homosexual acts are both sterile and hazardous to health.

I read in Christian Newswire on April 11 that the Pope knows first hand what happens when a society refuses to defend the most defenseless of its citizens. “As a boy of fourteen, Joseph Ratzinger [now Benedict XVI] had a cousin who had been born with Down’s Syndrome, only a bit younger than himself. In 1941, German state “therapists” came to the boy’s house and probably informed the parents of the government regulation that prohibited mentally handicapped children from remaining in their parents’ home. In spite of the family’s pleas, the representatives of the Nazi state took the child away. The Ratzinger family never saw him again. Later the family learned that he had ‘died,’ most likely murdered, for being merely ‘undesirable,’ a blemish in the race, and a drain on the productivity of the nation. This was Joseph Ratzinger’s first experience of a murderous philosophy that asserts that some people are disposable.”
