We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.

Abortion industry on trial. The culture of death in Canada.

From the CBC [July 9, 2015]:
​A legal and human rights expert wants to know how a Winnipeg girl could have been impregnated by her stepfather twice and had two abortions before she was 13, yet not have been deemed a victim of sexual assault. (The abortion industry is not as transparent nor compassionate as some fantasize it to be.)
The offences took place in 2011 and 2012, but only came to light after the stepfather, now 35 years old, was arrested for assaults against two other people. (A young girl assaulted and ignored by a system in a society that sexualizes and exploits children.)
He has since pleaded guilty to multiple counts of sexual assault as well as other charges.
"In my view, if a child presents at a hospital pregnant, there's questions. There's reason for red flags to be raised," said Karen Busby, a University of Manitoba law professor and a director of the university's Centre for Human Rights Research. "Because technically speaking, an offence has occurred." (Duh, ya think?!)
Consider the following reports of abortion businesses covering up child rape and child sex trafficking: click HERE.

A society or portion thereof that devalues human life in the womb is hardly capable of defending life outside the womb. When the weakest members of society, i.e., unborn children from the moment of conception, are reduced to commodities whereby businesses profit from their deaths, the indifference to the innocent lives being taken will become an entrenched attitude that permits all forms of indifference to human life and human dignity.

Death is as death does.

The last few decades have witnessed the adoption into mainstream culture every demeaning and destructive attitude and practice advocated by the worst human rights abusers and genocidal maniacs of the 20th and current century.

The tragic loss of innocence and the incremental rise in all forms of violence, especially violence against the unborn, children and women (sex trafficking, etc.), are attributable to the anti-life policies promoted by groups which stand to profit the most from the suffering of women and children.

The Church continues to embrace the victims of abortion and continues to care for the women whose lives have been shattered by the abortion industry.

Rising moral literacy.

A new generation has emerged that does not buy into the propaganda of the abortion industry, an industry which exists only to profit from the suffering of women. This new generation has internet access to the scientific data and moral arguments which counter the fiction promoted by abortion advocates.

A younger generation, less encumbered by the entitlement fetish of the "Me Generation" and having encountered the truth and beauty of unborn children, is not convinced by the yesteryear "free love" or love-without-responsibility mantras of the men-hating pseudo-feminists. Members of this same younger more morally enlightened generation realize they have been fortunate to escape the abortionists' instruments of death. They realize they have escaped being excised from existence by the sophistry of the "choice" generation, and that they have a duty to defend the lives of others who, being the same as them, i.e., human beings, merit protection from their weakest moment of life in the womb.

The latest generation of pro life witnesses has science and ethics on its side, and people know that. Only members of the dwindling diehard pro-abortion camp ignore the scientific data.

If we marginalize life at any stage, we marginalize life at all other stages. Mankind is, human beings are, characterized by an ongoing congnitive and biological continuum. This continuum merits promotion and protection from attempts to ignore it and attempts that use ignorance of it to continue to marginalize people at different or distinct (earlier, and for that matter, later) stages of development.

If we use mere viability as the measure of man—his intellectual, emotional or physical viability, for example—usefulness or lack thereof will be used against us to rob us of our inherent dignity. People are waking up to the reality that the "pro choice" argument constitutes a reduction of human dignity that not only robs our weakest brothers and sisters of their lives, of their right to life, it robs all people of their humanness. More populations are beginning to reject the "pro choice" sophistry and to challenge the status quo because they realize that they may be judged by the powerful as inadequate and therefor disposable for not measuring up to the viability standards imposed by the powerful.

The tired slogans and the newspeak of the abortion lobby are no longer convincing men and women who, encountering the simple and unquestionable  beauty and dignity of the unborn revealed by science (e.g., 3D imaging), are turning to church and independent support groups for help to keep their babies and raise their children.


Care and Compassion



Catholic dioceses have groups that can help you care for yourself and your unborn child, free of charge. Services typically include medical, counselling and material support (food, lodging, clothing) and, if requested, help for those who desire to provide for a child's care by offering up a child for loving adoption.

Save a child; save the world.
