Jerusalem

“We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem — but we could never sanction it. The soil of Jerusalem, if it was not always sacred, has been sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of the Church I cannot tell you anything different. The Jews have not recognized our Lord, therefore we cannot recognize the Jewish people.”

Pope St. Pius X

The End of Abortion in Poland?

On 30th November, 2017, the Legislative Initiative Committee ‘Stop Abortion’ submitted to the Marshal of the Sejm a draft amendment to Poland’s abortion law. The initiative was supported by a record high number of Poles – as many as 830 thousand people signed their names calling for a change in the law! That equates to approximately 1.4 million people in Britain. The Speaker of the Sejm now has to set the date of the first parliamentary reading within 3 months.

The amendment proposed by the Life and Family Foundation contains a slight change in the wording of the Act, but which will enormous consequences in practice. By deleting from the current abortion law the reason of genetic malformation, i.e. a provision permitting the killing of a child because of suspicion of disability or other genetic condition, it will prevent the vast majority of children being killed. Eugenic reasons for abortion account for 95% of all abortions in Poland. When it comes to numbers, the increase is visible from year to year. In 2015, 1,000 out of the 1044 so-called ‘legal’ abortions were due tio perceived birth defects. And in 2016, genetic defect accounted for 1042 out of 1098 so-called ‘legal’ abortions.

It is also a practice of particular cruelty, because abortion due to a genetic defect is performed at an advanced stage of pregnancy (5-6 months). Another monstrous reality in Polish hospitals is live birth abortion, after which children are left to certain death without any medical help, because the aborters are protected by law. In this way, people with disabilities are still murdered in Polish hospitals with impunity and under protection of the so-called law.
