“I Can’t Believe That The People Of Poland And Ireland, Once They Understand What Is Happening, Will Not Stand Up In Defense Of Human Life.” Cardinal Burke
“The Church has a very critical role to play in Ireland and Poland,”
“I can’t believe that the people of Poland and Ireland, once they understand what is
happening, will not stand up in defense of human life.” “The important thing is that the citizens be well informed about what is happening, which is against the most fundamental moral truth, and that they be encouraged to resist,” the cardinal said.

Our pro-life movement has many compelling stories that are based on unvarnished reality and promote a deeper understanding of the issues and the people involved. Some of our stories expose the frightening truth and expanding agenda of the "culture of death." Other stories are inspirational lessons on the value of true justice, compassion, and moral principles. These stories highlight what love, faith, hope, support, selflessness, and respect for life can accomplish. Such stories are all around us if we only look. By telling our stories and those of others, we are helping to push back the culture of death.
It seems to me that a clarion call to ban all human cloning is a moral imperative. What is also a moral imperative is that prolife gets the science right so that in supporting certain bills they don't end up actually legally protecting some or even all human cloning, thus legally allowing the death and destruction of untold numbers of innocent living human beings in cloning research experiments -- not to mention the harm to untold numbers of women into whom these experimental cloned human embryos are implanted, and then often purposefully aborted.
Family, church, and school are the three basic people-forming institutions, and it is no wonder that they produce the best results -- including economic and political ones -- when they cooperate.
The primary business of the state is justice. Because children cannot be autonomous, adult society has an obligation in justice to provide institutional structures that protect their most basic interests.
In 1940 there were 160 workers supporting each person on Social Security. By 2006 this number had fallen to 3.3 workers per pensioner. By 2034, there will be only 2.1 workers for each person collecting a government retirement check.
Its action could be compared to a grape on the vine. If you were to pinch the stem so as to prevent the nutritive sap from getting to the grape, then the grape will wither, die and drop off. Essentially this is what is done when this pill functions to end a pregnancy. It deprives the developing embryonic baby of this vital nutrient hormone, progesterone, and so this tiny one withers, dies and is lost, along with the lining of the womb which is not maintained because of the blocking of this hormone.
Though we cannot with certainty change the world around us, we can change ourselves and choose to salute life. We can then hope, and pray, for the best. I pray that more will join in and lift a glass across the table of this life, as I do, and make a toast, to the family of those who respect life and its Creator, to my friends, to you, and make a toast "To Life!"
One thing clearly needs to be decided. "Either support should be given to a bill that is truly a 'total ban' on all human cloning, or else support should be given to a bill that is only a 'partial ban' on human cloning." If a bill purports to be a 'total ban' on all human cloning, but is really just a 'partial ban', then the public needs and has the right to know that fact. This is not about a "perfect" bill, or about "incrementalism". It is about stating the truth about a bill that is purported to be a 'total ban' but in reality is only a 'partial' ban on human cloning.
