Pro-life this Week: June 3, 2022

Archbishop of San Francisco, Salvatore Cordileone, announced in a letter last Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is barred from receiving Holy Communion. 

A newborn baby boy was rescued from a dumpster by a sanitation worker. The newborn was tied in a plastic bag with his umbilical cord still attached. 

The New York Post reported last week that a sanitation worker courageously rescued the baby from a dumpster in Iran after hearing muffled breathing from a tied bag. In a video that has since gone viral, the worker tore open the bag, allowing the baby boy to breathe and called emergency services. The New York Post reports that the baby is now in stable condition, thanks to the man who discovered him. 

While this incident occurred in Iran, “baby dumping” is, sadly, also common in the United States. 

Just this past January, a New Mexico mom was caught on film dumping her newborn into a dumpster and fleeing the scene. The baby miraculously survived, but the situation brought attention to a surprisingly unknown law in the US: Safe Haven Laws. 

The authorities in the city of Española, New Mexico, where the baby was tossed into a dumpster, wanted to fight this ignorance head on. They did so by installing the first “baby box” in the state. The “baby box” allows mothers to comply with state “Safe Haven Laws,” which allow mothers to surrender their newborns anonymously within a certain number of days following birth.

The baby box is temperature controlled and alerts emergency services when it’s used, allowing the baby to stay safe until emergency personnel arrive.  

Every state in the US has a safe-haven law. With SCOTUS expected to rule on Roe any day, it is imperative that pro-lifers educate women on safe-haven laws and other life-affirming options available to them.

Join the National Men’s March to End Abortion and Rally for Personhood on Saturday, June 11, 12-3 pm, in Tallahassee, FL.

There is a man connected to every abortion. Men are a big part of the problem, and it’s time for all men to take responsibility to be a big part of the solution. All men of goodwill are needed for the March and everyone else is needed for the Rally. This is truly a battle for the soul of our nation. We highly encourage fathers to march with sons, and entire families to join us at the Rally. Every life matters!

In social media, “ratio” is used to describe a social media post that gets more comments than likes, or when a comment to a post gets more likes than the original post.

This week, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio got “ratio’d” after posting this gem of wisdom to Twitter:

Oh dear.

Killing babies waiting to be born is a major source of non-government, facility income. That’s why facilities that do not or cannot kill are the first to be shuttered when Planned Parenthood is making budget cuts.

And who is running it?
