On World Down Syndrome Day, noting a Down’s holocaust

Iceland (MNN) — Today is World Down Syndrome Day, and people are celebrating friends and family with Down Syndrome and the joy they bring. Meanwhile, there is a Down Syndrome holocaust taking place in abortion facilities across the globe.
Earlier this year, Dr. Peter McParland spoke at the Citizens Assembly in Ireland advocating for a new, non-invasive prenatal blood test (NIPT). In his presentation, Dr. McParland praised prenatal screening in Iceland that has led to the abortion of 100 percent of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome over five years.
That statistic comes from Iceland’s reports given from 2008-2012. But if the trend has continued since 2012, that would come to nearly a decade of all prenatally diagnosed Down Syndrome babies being aborted in Iceland.

Evil does not rest, The International Fund for Evil

Evil does not rest. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.
You might remember that President Trump reinstated the “Mexico City Policy,” which bans U.S. funding to foreign non-government organizations that provide or promote abortions.
As I said at the time, it’s great news. What I didn’t expect was that other nations would rush in to replace the loss of U.S. funds for overseas abortions.
That’s what happened. So far, as reported at the Stream.org, eight countries have agreed to establish an international fund to kill babies: Canada, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, and Cape Verde.
As one Swedish official bloviated, if women can’t “control their own bodies,” that would have serious consequences for “gender rights” and “global poverty eradication.”
And, I’ll add human life eradication.
While there’s comfort in knowing our tax dollars won’t be funding abortions overseas, evil does not rest. Nor should we.

This Catholic University is Hosting the “Vagina Monologues” and Donating Proceeds to Planned Parenthood

After attending the March for Life in Washington, D.C and the National Students for Life Conference, the Loyola Students for Life group returned back to Loyola University, a Catholic institution, only to find that the Women’s Resource Center of the school was putting on a vulgar show entitled The Vagina Monologues. And the proceeds? Well, they were going to Planned Parenthood. Again, this is at a Catholic university, a faith that holds abortion to be a “grave evil.”
The Students for Life group first learned of the event from an announcement at Sunday night Mass on campus.
Campus Ministry, including the man announcing at mass, had no idea the proceeds were going to Planned Parenthood. The event itself was well advertised but it wasn’t made clear that the funds were going to Planned Parenthood directly, until the group did their research.
Regardless, we should be concerned that advertising an event called Vagina Monologues at a Catholic Church is probably not the best place for such an announcement…

Good, and surprising news  from the United Methodist Church

For 40 years the United Methodist Church has supported the Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade decision – that is, until last week.
Delegates of the country’s third-largest religious body voted 445 to 310 to repeal the official resolution supporting the case establishing a constitutional “right” to abortion during its General Conference. They also voted to sever its affiliation with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), an interfaith organization co-founded by the United Methodist Church.
The RCRC advocates for abortion without restrictions – the legal killing of any pre-born child for any reason at any point during pregnancy. The group even supports partial-birth and sex-selection abortion, and promotes rituals to bless the work of abortion clinics.
You can begin to see why it’s big news for the UMC to take two big leaps towards a complete pro-life position. Pregnant, abortion-minded women within the Methodist denomination may now reconsider their decision.

Guess who else is speaking at the March for Life

Susan B. Anthony in particular—were fiercely pro-life, ( you can be for women, and be pro life ) 

Women who don’t support abortion aren’t real women, according to many modern feminists. Here’s why they should read more history.

John Stonestreet
In a recent Saturday Night Live sketch, a group of millennial women visit the historic home of suffragette Susan B. Anthony in Rochester, New York. Devout feminists one and all, they decide before leaving to invoke the ghost of Anthony by saying her name three times. Lo and behold, she appears, played by Kate McKinnon—bun, lace collar, and all.
Hilariously, the modern feminists find Anthony quite boring. She drones on about women’s rights and dignity, while they check their smart phones and argue about dinner. Until finally she says something that wakes them all up: “Abortion is murder!”
Doubtless many modern feminists were taken aback by this Saturday Night slip-up, given the show’s liberal leanings. But as Serrin Foster of Feminists for Life told National Review, all of the “feminist foremothers…without known exception, spoke out against abortion.”
That’s right. The suffragettes—Susan B. Anthony in particular—were fiercely pro-life, calling abortion a “crime against humanity,” “feticide,” and “child murder.” In fact, one of the primary organizations backing pro-life candidates today—the Susan B. Anthony list—does so in her name.
Given how close the unborn were to the hearts of the earliest women’s rights crusaders, it’s troubling to see how unwelcome pro-life women are on the modern feminist stage. We saw this discrimination vividly last week during the nationwide Women’s March.
daily_commentary_01_26_17Muffled but not quite absent were the voices of pro-life women. Several prominent pro-life organizations that applied as partners of the women’s march were either dis-invited or ignored, though several showed up anyway. Even the New York Times, in a surprising and praiseworthy piece, documented the virtual blackout of pro-life messages at the demonstration.
After booting a Texas anti-abortion group, Women’s March co-chairwoman, Linda Sarsour, told the Times, “If you want to come to the march you are coming with the understanding that you respect a woman’s right to choose.”
In other words, pro-lifers not welcome!
“This is what we conservative women live with all the time,” said Charmaine Yoest, senior fellow at American Values: “This idea that somehow we aren’t really women and we just reflect internalized misogyny.”
The Women’s March was, Yoest concluded, a “wholly owned subsidiary of the abortion movement.” And were it not for the unexpected coverage by the Grey Lady, these organizers may have succeeded in drowning out the pro-life message.
But as Bob Dylan sang, the times, they’re a changin’. Just this month, the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute reported that abortions in the United States have fallen to their lowest rate since Roe v. Wade.
A lot has contributed to this decline, from pro-life legislation and ultrasound availability, to widespread contraception use and the acceptance of unwed motherhood. So the news isn’t all good. But when you consider the growing movement of young people who see the rights of the unborn as a social justice issue, the tired assumption that feminism equals abortion support really begins to falter.
Even pop culture and late night TV are straying from the pro-abortion script. And as Kathryn Jean Lopez wrote in National Review, this may be our chance to reintroduce an older, better women’s movement—one that didn’t pit the rights of mothers against the lives of their unborn children.
And speaking of life, I hope you’ll join me, Eric Metaxas, and tens of thousands of others at March for Life activities this weekend in Washington, D.C. If you can’t make the trip, we still need to make our voices heard. Even more, we need to join in prayer! Our 21 Days of Prayer for Life guide is available for free as an app or a digital download.
