​Strength of Mind

The kind of intellectual laziness found today even among the highly educated, is absurd and hard to explain given that we are living  in an age of such easy access to information. Watch  Ben Shapiro exposing  the deep ignorance, or the shallow knowledge of a man  who thinks he can justify abortion.

24 yr old Nun Raped by soldiers, became pregnant: Sister Lucy Vertrusc

22 12 2016

24-year-old nun was taken to a back room and raped

In 1995, Sister Lucy Vertrusc – a young Catholic nun – became pregnant after she was raped by soldiers during the war in former Yugoslavia.

After coming to terms with her condition, Sister Lucy sat down and penned an extraordinary letter to her Mother Superior.

And Mother Superior, so moved by Sister Lucy’swords, insisted that her words be shared in an Italian newspaper.

The powerful letter begins: “I am Lucy, one of the young nuns raped by the Serbian soldiers.

“I am writing to you, Mother, after what happened to my sisters Tatiana, Sandria, and me.

“Allow me not to go into the details of the act. There are some experiences in life so atrocious that you cannot tell them to anyone but God, in whose service I had consecrated my life nearly a year ago.

“My drama is not so much the humiliation that I suffered as a woman, not the incurable offence committed against my vocation as a religious, but the difficulty of having to incorporate into my faith an event that certainly forms part of the mysterious will of Him whom I have always considered my Divine Spouse.”

She continued: “Someone grabbed me one night, a night I wish never to remember, tore me off from myself, and tried to make me his own…

“It was already daytime when I awoke and my first thought was the agony of Christ in the Garden. Inside of me a terrible battle unleashed. I asked myself why God had permitted me to be rent, destroyed precisely in what had been the meaning of my life, but also I asked to what new vocation He was calling me.

“I strained to get up, and helped by Sister Josefina, I managed to straighten myself out. Then the sound of the bell of the Augustinian convent, which was right next to ours, reached my ears. It was time for nine o’clock matins.”

Sister Lucy explained that she went to say her prayers, as normal, and found herself struck by the image of Jesus sacrificing himself to save mankind from their own sins.

She explained: “In these last months I have been crying a sea of tears for my two brothers who were assassinated by the same aggressors who go around terrorising our towns, and I was thinking that it was not possible for me to suffer anything worse, so far from my imagination had been what was about to take place.

“Every day hundreds of hungering creatures used to knock at the doors of our convent, shivering from the cold, with despair in their eyes. Some weeks ago, a young boy about eighteen years old said to me: ‘How lucky you are to have chosen a refuge where no evil can reach you.’

“The boy carried in his hands a rosary of praises for the Prophet. Then he added: ‘You will never know what it means to be dishonoured.’

“I pondered his words at length and convinced myself that there had been a hidden element to the sufferings of my people that had escaped me as I was almost ashamed to be so excluded. Now I am one of them, one of the many unknown women of my people, whose bodies have been devastated and hearts seared.

“The Lord had admitted me into his mystery of shame.”

The young nun finished: “Everything has passed, Mother, but everything begins. In your telephone call, after your words of encouragement, for which I am grateful with all my life, you posed me a very direct question: ‘What will you do with the life that has been forced into your womb?’

“I had already decided. I will be a mother. The child will be mine and no one else’s.

“I know that I could entrust him to other people, but he – though I neither asked for him nor expected him – he has a right to my love as his mother. A plant should never be torn from its roots.”

Sister Lucy added: “I will go with my child. I do not know where, but God, who broke all of a sudden my greatest joy, will indicate the path I must tread in order to do His will.

I will be poor again, I will return to the old aprons and the wooden shoes that the women in the country use for working, and I will accompany my mother into the forest to collect the resin from the slits in the trees.

“Someone has to begin to break the chain of hatred that has always destroyed our countries. And so, I will teach my child only one thing: love.

“This child, born of violence, will be a witness along with me that the only greatness that gives honour to a human being is forgiveness.”

She Had 8 Abortions while Single. Now She can’t get pregnant

14 11 2016

had-abortions

Too late a woman in Nigeria is realizing the tragic consequences of her abortions.

Faith writes to The Pulse’s “Morning Teaser” feature, worried that her eight abortions early in life are keeping her from getting pregnant now.

Her letter to the Nigerian news outlet reads:

… I have been married to a wonderful man for the past 12 years with no fruit of the womb to show. My husband has been very supportive and has stood by me despite pressure from his family to get another wife.

But I am getting worried as I am not getting any younger and my chances of having a baby is growing thin by the day.

We have carried out several tests and the doctors keep saying there is nothing wrong with us but I am afraid the problem could be mine because when I was single, I lived the fast life like most girls.

I had my first abortion when I was in the secondary school and before I got married, I had terminated more than eight pregnancies. I am not sure if this has anything to do with my inability to have a child now that I desperately need one.

The news outlet also published a similar letter earlier this year written by a husband struggling with the couple’s infertility:

… we were both shocked when [the doctor] conducted series of tests and came out with the damning verdict that my wife had a ruptured fallopian tube caused probably by an abortion.

Worried and confused, I asked her if she had had an abortion and, in tears, she told me she had three abortions when she was in the university and that she almost lost her life in the last one which damaged her chances of having a child.

Many women are uninformed about the risks abortion can pose to their health and their future ability to have children.

 

Researchers at Tel Aviv University recently found that women who have just one abortion are more likely to have complications in other pregnancies. The study found that women who have one abortion during the first trimester are 30% more likely to have complications such as pre-term birth, vaginal bleeding, low birth weight and placenta complications with future pregnancies.

Tragically, abortion definitely can contribute to infertility in women because the procedure sometimes causes infections or leaves scar tissue. A 2006 British study found that women who have an abortion run at a 60-percent higher risk of having a miscarriage in a subsequent pregnancy, LifeNews previously reported.

This isn’t the first study to show that abortions adversely affect a woman’s fertility. Other research shows that abortion can lead to infertility by increasing the risk of miscarriages.

A 1986 report in the medical journal Epidemiology reveals women with a history of abortion have a greater risk of fetal loss than women who had no previous abortions. Women with two prior pregnancies carried to term and no abortions had the lowest risk, while women with two prior abortions had the highest risk.

Meanwhile, a 1991 British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology article revealed that women with a history of abortion had a 1.5-1.7 times higher risk of ectopic pregnancy than women who had previously carried a pregnancy to term.

Mike Pence Defends Life (VP Debate)

5 10 2016

mike-pence

During tonight’s vice presidential debate, pro-life Indiana Governor Mike Pence took a solid pro-life view articulating the case that society will be judged by how it defends its most vulnerable persons — including unborn children the disabled and the elderly.

Borrowing a quote from Mother Teresa, Governor Pence said that we ought to “welcome children into the world.”

“I would tell you — the sanctity of life proceeds out of the belief that ancient principle where God says before you were formed in the womb I knew you, and so for my first time in public life, I sought to stand with great compassion for the sanctity of life,” Pence said during the debate.  “Society will be judged by how it defends its most vulnerable – the aged, the infirm, the disabled, and the unborn.”

“The state of Indiana is also — sought to make sure we expand alternatives and healthcare counseling for women — non- abortion alternatives. I’m also pleased with the fact we are well on our way in Indiana to becoming most pro- adoption state in America. I think you’ll be pro-life you should be pro- adoption,” Pence continued.

“People need to understand — we can come together as a nation. We can create a culture of life — more and more young people today are embracing life because we know we are — better for it. Like Mother Teresa said — bring — let’s welcome the children into the world. There are so many families around the country who cannot have children,” the governor added. A society can be its most vulnerable — the agent the firm the disabled and the unborn. I believe it with all of my heart.”

The governor also said he was proud to share the same ticket as Donald Trump, who is campaigning as a pro-life advocate and who has said he would appoint the kind of judges pro-life voters want to see and has committed to signing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood.

“I couldn’t be more proud to stand with Donald Trump who is standing for the right to life,” Pence said….. STEVEN ERTELT
